I love being self employed but sometimes I miss weekends. When I had a 9 to 5 corporate type job I had weekends off. I try to take a weekend off each month but sometimes it just doesn’t work out. During the winter months sometimes I get three weekends off in a month.
There are real estate emergencies. If an offer comes in on one of my listings I feel obliged to respond quickly. If a buyer wants to see a house sometimes weekends are the only times they can do it. I showed houses on my birthday but was happy to do it and the money I made came in handy over the holidays.
It is hard to think of some days as work days and other days as days off. Weekends have a different pace, It is slower and there is less traffic on the roads. I also think of having work as a privilege because I don’t always have enough work. I listen to people who talk about work and jobs like they are entitlements.
Working on the weekend isn’t as bad as it sounds. I took this picture on a Thursday during the day while everyone else was at work.
