I couldn't help but notice that some of the writers' blogs I follow had new posts up on Monday, President's Day. Michael got that day off from work, and since I've finally learned that I don't get any work done when he's home, anyway, I decided to just take the day off too. Actually, we both took yesterday off as well, and enjoyed a long weekend together.
But this brings up an interesting point: Do you take minor holidays off, and if so, which ones? It seems to me like many writers take fewer days off than other people, so I'm curious what holidays my readers take. I really only take the holidays that Michael gets off, because as I said, it's really difficult to try to work while he's at home. I think if I had kids at home, I would probably also take the minor holidays that the schools recognize.
What about you?
