I feel like I live in a foreign country
Since Friday, I've been hearing people talk about their plans for the three-day weekend. Huh? I had to grab a calendar to figure out that today was Presidents' Day. See, in this part of the country, we didn't get today off. All of my kids got up and went to school. People went to work. I think that my neighbor across the street may have been off because he works for a bank, but that's it. Today was business as usual here, so stop taunting me with all the fun you had on your long weekend!
