We are not working at all this weekend. All of our weekend work will be completed on Friday, so we can enjoy the holiday weekend.

I couldn't even dream of taking a perfectly good weekday off unless it was Christmas or thanksgiving. I often wonder how other companies do it. How do you make up a whole 10 or 12 hour day? It's not like you can double up the next day. It's not worth it to me. Besides. I'd be sitting home all day feeling guilty for not working.

Simple. I work Monday through Friday. If it rains everything gets pushed forward a day.

Weekends are for family.

Especially this time of year. If I were forced to sit at home I'd spend the whole time wishing I was out getting caught up on work.
