Weekends are for?

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. šŸ™‚
