I was recently at breakfast with my girlfriend discussing the fact that all of my children will be leaving for 2 weeks to visit my sister, so I'll be ALONE!!! I can hardly wait, hehe. I sadly said, however, that I'll probably end up reorganizing the house or cleaning or something, since I can never seem to be able to just take a day off, much less several. You know what I'm talking about, right? It's your day off, and you get up, have your coffee, start the laundry, go through the bills and pay what's due, have breakfast, do a load of dishes, notice the counters are dirty and clean the kitchen, then notice the fridge is grungy, so you clean that, too. And that's in the first hour or two! Meanwhile, if a MAN has a day off, he gets up, has his coffee, sits on the couch, and stays there pretty much all day, or goes out fishing, etc. He has no concern whatsoever for the laundry or dirty underware.
So, how DO you "relax" on your day off? Or do you ever feel like you actually have a day off? I propose we all take at least one day a month and declare it "Relax like a man day." No chores, no errands, nothing but doing what you love, like reading a trashy romance novel in the tub with a glass of wine or taking a long, quiet hike, what ever makes you feel relaxed.
