Happy Labor Day

By Robin Dearing

Happy Labor Day to those of you who have it as a holiday and a simple happy Monday to those who do not.

I'm pseudo-celebrating in that while the university is in session today, I'm at home trying to get a lecture written. But — and this is a very big but — I didn't have to get up early this morning and get Margaret to school. Plus, she let me take her downtown for some shopping and lunch. And during that lunch, she played cards with me. More than a holiday, that is. It's a miracle.

My mom, Bill and I like to play cards while waiting for our food. Mar will never play cards with us. Why? She likes playing games, but she won't play because she hates losing. Sad, but true. She'd rather text her friends than ever play cards with us. So, it was an extra special occassion that she happily agreed to play cards with me. Guess what? She won ... and no, I didn't let her win. Ain't no fun in that.

Now, I'm back at my desk trying to work. There lectures aren't going to write themselves and apparently this kitten can't survive if she isn't lying on my arm trying to steal my pen:

Dali's face says, "It's a holiday. Don't you want to take a nap?" Evil streak in that kitten, I tell you.

So, happy whatever today is for you. Hope the rest of the week goes well, too.

I just wrote a little something that involved some card playing. I love your idea of playing cards while waiting for your food. So, you just carry a deck in your purse at all times?

Randee, I do carry a deck of cards in my purse at all times. It’s pretty nerdy, but it’s a fun way to pass time while just sitting around. And then we can play cards where ever we are.

Our holiday wasn’t much more interesting in that we spent it catching up on things around the house in order to make through more days of work. Aw, Labor Day.
