Do you ever get excited about a long weekend and the prospect of spending 4 straight days away from your place of employment...only to feel a major let down when you realise you will spend it cleaning, doing yard work and household chores (probably in the rain)? Trading one work for another work, awesome. Why is it that I clean and yet my house is never clean?
It never ends and you end up with one of 2 scenarios. #1 - You go and relax and have fun and generally ignore the work stuff and enjoy the weekend, but come home to a dirty house and a to-do list as long as your arm. #2 - You spend all weekend cleaning, fixing, gardening, and working, have no fun and find that you have to do it all over again the next weekend.
This is infinitely depressing to me.
