Sore back Tuesday
When it was first created (here in the US), Labor Day was a celebration of the working man, the reason for the prosperity of the US. It started with parades and celebrations, and seems to continue that tradition today, but on a much smaller scale. Most people still have picnics. Some people take the time to actually relax, going on a short vacation to fill up the 4 day weekend, and others, like myself, tend to take the labor part of the day and work on labor intensive projects for the weekend. This of course goes completely against the reason for the holiday, and shows us that we the people aren’t taking the time we need to get that much needed rest and relaxation, instead we need those holidays to get stuff done. So that’s what I did, finishing up long sitting projects that just had a few minor things to be completed. It sounds like my every day work, though here I get to sit in a chair and not wind up with sore muscles and back from actually moving.
