Are you working today or did you get a long holiday weekend?

DH and I are both working today. He and his lab tech rotate time off around the holidays. Here in my office, we are half-staff. It is nice in a way - quiet, good for getting things done (like closing the June books). Sure was difficult to get up this morning though!

Are you working today or did you get a nice long holiday weekend?

I'm working today and got to work yesterday. I do start my vacation at 3pm though and won't be back to work until the 15th

I could have had the day off, but figured I am not wasting a day off by staying home.  I'll save a day off for when it's needed or we go somewhere.

 I agree. I don't want to take a vacation day when we don't have any plans. I'll work today and use my vacation day for an actual vacation!

 I had hoped for a beach trip, but DH wanted to relax at home.  Relaxing?  Maybe for him, I have too much to do at home to relax.  So, I'll work.

 Yeah, I hear ya. DH and kids can relax on a day at home, but not me. If nothing else, there's always laundry and meals to deal with - but there's ALWAYS something else too. Home is not exactly relaxing.
