Last Saturday it occurred to me that I like, what’s another word for “goofing
off?: relaxing! For so many years I would listen to smug Monday to Friday workers talk about how short the weekends were. Try working until late on a Saturday when all the barbeques, bridal parties and trips happen. You miss out on a lot of “stuff”.
These lockdowns have made me appreciate having Saturdays off. Doing hair is great but working
for yourself takes up your time. For now, at 5:00 pm on Friday, I shut down. Since I am going to be in forced confinement, I figure, I might as well enjoy it! I read, change my hair (for the 100th time according to my roommates), and make food I would normally buy just to save time etc. It is a wonderful life.
I am going to milk this to the end. Who knows when there will be another “staycation” like this. Hopefully, a regular monthly break could become part of the benefits people can take without repercussions in the future. I will try to be caught on an island next time, taking time for, what’s another word for “goofing off” again: ME time.
