31 for 21: Columbus Day (observed)

This was the first year that Columbus Day snuck up on me. That might seem like a weird thing to say, but it's amazing to me. My brother's birthday is on October 12, the "real" Columbus Day, so I don't miss that one. Yet somehow, in my distractedness that is my normal way of life lately, I've somehow turned up 8 days into October without knowing it. It seems silly even to me that I'm making enough of this to mention it, but it makes me feel like I've really become out of touch. I guess that's what happens when you go 3 and 4 days at a time without leaving the house.

Since it was a mini-holiday, as they call it at the bank where my husband works, he got the day off. He was on call, so there were some things to attend to, but for the most part, it was a work-free day. That's nice, since he had worked both Saturday and Sunday. It was a fairly non-eventful day of nothingness for me too. I got nothing done. I accomplished nothing. What did I cook? Nothing. What did I clean? Nothing. Well, I guess I did get some work-work done. (That's the kind I get paid for.) That's something.

I didn't feel great for most of the afternoon, but that's all the excuse I have for wasting an entire day. Some members of my family consider this a good thing and the makings of a great day, but it makes me feel like total yuck. Let's see if I can pull it together tomorrow. Here's hoping!


  1. Don't kick yourself too hard; everyone needs a day off now and then :o)
    Your old mom NEEDS a day off, but it won't be today.

  2. Ahh, the grandness of the mini holiday! I do miss those! Karen K
