Three days is the perfect amount of time for a weekend. We have a great Labor Day weekend. On Saturday, we went to Southern Pines to visit Bill's parents. They took us to a wonderful German restaurant. We have a fantastic meal and a good visit. On Sunday, we did almost nothing. We slept in, read, and watched a bit of TV. I even worked on my scrapbook a bit even though I never got out of my pj's. We had Monday to run errands and get organized for the week. It really was perfect.
I just need to figure out how to have every weekend be a 3 day weekend!
