The long weekend that comes with Labor Day is not something that I usually do much with or even notice for that matter. This year was certainly different. We were able to fill our weekend with a lot of great things; a baseball game with fireworks on Friday night, the hot air balloon night glow on Saturday night, time with best friends out of town Sunday afternoon-mid Monday morning, then time in Estes Park on Monday with friends from Indiana. It was a good weekend with a lot of different, enjoyable and simple things. Ironically, it has taken me all week to recover from the weekend. I am tired and also find myself playing catch-up a lot at work, which I do not enjoy so much. That is the great irony of time off, it is enjoyable and relaxing and yet you pay double for it when you come back to the many things that you did not do while you are gone. Just another sign that we are too busy as a culture!
