I had forgotten today was a US holiday. If it weren't for the Internet I would never know these things. Once, while in the jungle, my husband and I both forgot our own anniversary. We were doing good if we remembered what day of the week it was as those things did not matter much in that culture.
But today is Labor Day. I am sure the holiday was named by a man! What woman would choose 'labor' as a name for a day of rest?
Sundays are always busy for us. Yesterday we had morning services, Sunday School and church, followed by a baptismal in the new baptistery. 6 adults were baptized. At 3:00 Clint had a study with 12 new couples, all unchurched. At 6:00 was a pre-marital counseling session and evening services at 7:00.
So you can see why we take Mondays as our day off. Today we had planned to just hang out at the house, maybe watch some dvd's with Jayde, but now that we know it is a holiday, we feel pressured to CELEBRATE!
So we have to go out and find some meat, get a gas tank for the BBQ, I have to bake something...
I should never have gotten online today! I could have had a relaxing day, but now I have to have LABOR DAY!
