I confess. I'm one of those people who live for the weekends. Although I feel as if I'm wishing my life away when I wake up and count the days until Saturday - glorious Saturday! - arrives.
I especially look forward to three-day weekends. The third day allows for extra writing hours - plotting, drafting, revising, whatever stage of production I'm in.
But please know I do value the meaning behind those "extra days," such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Veterans Day. I take time to reflect and appreciate the courage of the people being honored that day.
Today and every day, to our veterans and their families, thank you for your sacrifices in service to our country.
