    Just wondering how many days a week do you guys mow?

    I mow monday - saturday

    I work for a company in college that mowed 3 14 hour days and part of the 4th to get things done. It seemed to work good for them especially when it rained.

    My average work week is about 30 hrs,give or take.I only work on a weekend day if I absolutly have to. Hey, life is too short and it's always too nice outside here to spend you life working yourself to death. We like to ride our motorcycles and go to the beach or fish on the pier or just be outside doing something. Money is a nessacery evil but it should not rule you. My wife and I are enjoying what Fla has to offer. We moved down here to get away from all the "big city" stress.

    Keep Sunday for yourself, physically and mentally. I also avoid saturday mowing because people are home, come out to talk, slow you down, kids everywhere.

    I'm Divorced & recently remarried,

    I have joint custody of my son(every other weekend). The weekend I have him I don't work at all.

    I work Monday through Saturday the rest of the time some times from 7-8am through dark if needed to get everything done so I can have part of the weekend off if possible.

    The only day I try really hard not to work on is Sunday but with rain sometimes I have to.
