Labor Day

la*bor day (la'ber da) n. : a legal holiday that is a creation of the labor movement, dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers; a day one only has to wake up to Reuben yelling "BOB!" in his crib instead of that AND the alarm clock (see Weekend); an opportunity to take a break from cooking dinner and just nosh on leftovers; the last day to review The Office Seasons 1 & 2 before Season 3 is released tomorrow; an afternoon to sit around in jammies and make Christmas gifts; the last day to run errands (ie the copy shop, the grocery store, and the fabric store) before the week officially begins; a day to change diapers, do the dishes, wash the laundry, parent the kids, potty-train the toddler, prepare meals, make the beds, and pick up the toys (see Every Other Day); the last chance to make sure all the books and art supplies are present before starting Homeschool tomorrow; a day to ponder "labor" and what it will mean to me this year; a day to thank the Lord for; a paid "day off"!
