Labor Day 2011

Topic #241:

Do you work too much or too little?

Today is Labor day in the United States, a national holiday for workers. It marks the end of summer, so for many it’s a last holiday out in the sun.

I suppose, if you talk to my husband, he would tell you that I don’t work enough… but, I would just like to kindly point out that he benefits from my salaried, work-from-home, position!  There is certainly a benefit in being able to answer the phone and emails from wherever I happen to be.. even if that means it is sometimes in the middle of a family gathering, and life in the cruise world hasn’t taken a break.

Our dogs benefit in not having to spend 8 hours a day in their crates, and the laundry is done at a time other than the weekend.  We all win!!

The perfect example is today, as I sit outside our lovely rented home in Bar Harbor, ME, with Brisbee exploring the fenced-in yard, a glass of wine by my side, and alternating between writing my post-a-week challenge and answering questions from the Maasdam about Crew Medicals.  Life can’t get much better.  😀

Life will certainly change as these next two months come about, as I will certainly be much busier than I am now.  So, hey, I’ll take the breaks when I can get them!!


I am Posting once a week in 2011!

Posted: September 5, 2011 in Once a week

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.  I will be posting on this blog once a week for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.
