Today was Labor Day.
They say that Labor Day is second only to New Years for making and creating goals. I'm not sure why that is. Part of it might be that a lot of people are going back to school. Part of it might have to do with the fact that people are starting to think about fall and the coming major holidays and they are realizing that the year is quickly coming to a close so they decide that they really need to do something quick before another year has gone by. Part of it might just be the changing of the seasons.
Another think they say about Labor Day I learned from a friend. He used to work at a home improvement center and he said that Labor Day and Memorial Day were the busiest days for home improvement. Those two three day weekends are the weekends that people are either starting or finishing home improvement projects. Maybe that's why Labor Day is second only to New Years in Goal setting. Today I kept my husband busy with a honey-do list and his goal is to never let me con him into doing another home improvement project.
