    I usually do not intentionally scheduele anything for weekends, I leave them to get caught up.

    However, this Sunday I'm planning on doing some mulching, shrub trimming & removal. Its at a commercial site, and everything is up near the door and where customers park, Because its Sunday, there won't be anyone there, so its just easier that way.

    I don't think I've worked a Sunday in about three years...I put in enough hours Mon-Sat. Years ago I used to work 7 days a week, before I was married and had a family. Sundays are for family time.

    I often work at my paying job during the weekends. If behind or otherwise on Saturdays otherwise try to spend some time with my wife.

    Sat is a given work day but Sunday only if I have the school property to do that will soon change as we only have 19 more days of school left
