Nope! I always meet that weekend with dread. I return back to work...at a school. It's the same feeling you got as a kid when summer was over. Sucks! 😝

@Luvsmyfam , I'm retired so everyday is a holiday, but I rememeber that feeling of anticipation. Are you still working 2 jobs?

No, just another day with no mail delivery.  What's to get all fluttery about?

@Luvsmyfam - I'll join in your excitement! It's always nice to have a day off, and it's even better when that day is heralding the upcoming fall season. I spend the entire weekend getting out alllllll of my pumpkins and decorating for autumn, the only event that makes any impact on my home besides Christmas. Looking forward to lots of cooler days and warmer colors...  Smiley Wink

My husband is retiring that week after 46 years with the same company. He only has 7 more working days. He made sure to take his sick time here and there before leaving that's why it's only 7 more working days. He has been looking forward to that day for months.

We have our annual "Labor Day Lift Off " balloon fest is that weekend. It's fun to see some of them pass over my house if the wind blows this way. Dog goes nuts though!

When I was still working ANY day off was cause for celebration!

@Meowingkitty I believe I began looking forward to that day since the first week of my full time job in state government. Wishing you both the best, and I hope he won't get bored, and he'll wake up happy every day glad that he doesn't need to go to work!

@Luvsmyfam @Kachina624 Maybe if you worked 2 jobs like the OP you might look forward to it too. Good grief.
