Holiday weekend in Canada

It's the third Monday in May so it's a holiday weekend here in Canada. Holiday weekends seem to be like magic - they do a soul good to have that extra day off to look forward to and the shorter work week.

Oddly enough though, some people get sick when they get back to work, be it a Monday morning after a regular weekend or after a long weekend. It could be because they party all weekend or change their sleeping habits. Or it could just be stress from going back to work. Researchers have found that the stress can start on Sunday night because people start thinking about going back to work and what needs to be done.

How do you spend your weekend - if you have a Monday to Friday job?

In honor of Victoria Day in Canada, one of the local radio stations here in NY played Victoria by the Kinks. I was able to sing a long because most of the lyrics was the word Victoria repeated over and over again.

i don't have a real job so-Wednesday or weekend, it's all the same to me.
