What is it with LONG weekends?

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Yes - you had three days off instead of two. Yes, you got to do some things that were productive or useful or fun or all of the above.

So - why does a long weekend usually feel like it went by even faster than usual weekends? Why does the shorter week after a long weekend usually feel like a longer week than normal?

See what happens when you goof up the time/space continuum?

    I remember the days when I worked. You're right lol. My Hubby works week-ends now, so we don't have to deal with short or long weeks. It's just the week-ends for him. At least he works from home!

    LOL - Are you demonstrating the theory of relativity? Time spent in pleasure goes by much faster than time spent toiling at chores!

    LOL Yes, it does seem like they both go by much quicker than when you have just the normal 2 days off. We still want them though. emoticon

    I go back tomorrow after a 4 day hiatus and it still feels like I'd love another 4 days! My work is not really work since it's something I enjoy so much...but honestly I'd rather be sitting up in my jewelry studio far from the maddening crowd! emoticon

    Actually it's much better now that we got the A/C installed...or it will be til I see the first bill arrive! Our ceilings are 50 ft high and nothing is air tight...yikes...the things we do for comfort! emoticon

    LOL...Yes, I know exactly what you mean! And top it off that I leave for a convention on Saturday...so this is going to be an even longer week.

    But we still want them, don't we! It just feels good--even to me, and I'm off anyway for the summer.

    I only had 2 days off. BUT I did have a FABULOUS holiday weekend, and now that I'm back at work my low-grade anxiety is back. Guess the weekend went so well I'm worried something bad will happen? Who knows?!
