The Hubs, L'il E and I just got back from a long weekend away at Nana and Poppi's in Halifax, NS. It was so nice having Daddy with us for three whole days! Wouldn't it be nice if we could have three-day weekends every weekend (in our dreams)?
Well, Michael Posner asked this question in last weekend's Globe and Mail and I was so delighted to see that it's not just me who longs for three-day weekends (obviously!). Posner asks - In an age of high-tech efficiency and higher productivity, why isn't the working world organized to provide us with more leisure time? Well, that's a good question! We're constantly plugged in to our work via blackberries, iPhones and VPN set ups with our home computers so why the five day work week? We all know that Fridays in the office are a joke anyway - very little work gets accomplished while people put there time in surfing the web as they count the minutes to 5:00 pm.
Don't you think we would be more productive if every weekend were a long weekend? More time to spend with our kids, more time to look after ourselves, and more time to get stuff done (am I right?)!
So, let's start a campaign...if Betty White can host SNL because of a Facebook group then we can get Fridays off indefinitely!
Who's with me?
