Labor Day Weekend....

Labor Day is a glorious holiday because your child will be going back to school the next day. 
It would have been called Independence Day, but that name was already taken...

Labor Day is an American federal holiday.  Observed on the first Monday in September.  
This is usually a three day weekend with many having Monday off. Labor Day weekend 
symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, 
parades and all sorts of sports events. In high society, Labor Day is (or was) 
considered the last day of the year when it is fashionable to wear white.

For many college kids, this is a weekend to head home and have some family time.   
Fun at the beach, BBQ's and that sort of thing.  It's also a perfect time for retail 
business since this is probably one of the biggest sale date during the year.  
Second only to Christmas and Black Friday.  Have already made sure I checked out Macy's :)
As Americans, I have done my best to do my "duty" and made sure Arvid did the same.

Arvid and I have a busy day ahead of us.  Being self employed means you don't have
 the usual holidays as most, at the same time means we also have flexibility 
in our schedules.  Works good for us.  Of course we will also check
out the "gigantic" savings going on.  It's interesting.

Hope everyone has had a good weekend so far.

Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it's
 essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important 
decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color 
to slide down on the rainbow....
