Labor Day

I've really done a turn around on Labor Day.

When I was a little kid, Labor Day meant dread-- the end of the summer, the beginning of school.

When I hit my teens, Labor Day meant anticipation.  I still wasn't thrilled with going back to school, but I saw the light at the end of the tunnel.  There was a definite "Let's get this over with" attitude.

Labor Day in college didn't mean much.  Yes, new semester, new classes.  But, I attended class every summer, so it really wasn't much of a change.  School was a year-round thing.

After college, and when I began working, I always managed to schedule a vacation week for September.  This year is no different.  More on that later in the week.

Remember what the day is all about.
