What To Do???

As most of you know I have been working my tail off!  I work 2 full-time jobs.  I basically work 7 days and 87+ hours a week.  If I was trying to break a record then I would say those were some pretty impressive numbers.  But I'm not going for a record.  So those number SUCK!

But there is light at the end of the tunnel.  I have another "record" that is about to end soon.  As of tomorrow I will have gone 100 (see that number is popping up again) straight days without a day off.  It's just the nature of 2 full-time jobs.  When one job has a day off the other doesn't...and vice versa.  When that happens I'm happy because I can at least say I'm not working 2 jobs that day.  But the days off have never fallen on the same day... until now.

Memorial Day (here in the US) is next Monday.  It commemorates U.S. soldiers who died while in military service.  It is a very noble holiday and I don't want to take anything away from the MAJOR importance and significance the Holiday was create for.  But I now have a minor dilemma...

I'm trying to figure out something to do on my day off!  I know I can do the family thing. (whatever) :-) I could go play golf. (Now we're talking!   And before you judge... I will play golf at the VA (VETERANS Administration) Golf Course.  So that makes it OK for Memorial Day.)  I could have a cook out. (Really, it's more of a cook IN. We don't have a grill... unless you count the Foreman.)  There are just so many things I could do.  But I haven't had a day off in a while so I'm kinda at a loss on what to do.

I could go for loftier goals like solving the world food shortage problem.  I could work on Middle East Peace.     I could go skydiving.  I could go Rocky Mountain climbing.  I could go 2.8 seconds on a bull named Fu Man Chu. (Look.  Tim McGraw went 2.7 seconds.  So I at least gotta beat him!)  The field is completely open.  (I am glad, however, that I looked at my things to remember from LAST Memorial Day as I'm sure I would have forgotten to remember them in remembrance of Memorial Day... remember?)  So let me ask this...

If you were me, what would you do on your day off?  And if you don't want to give me some great ideas because you already know I'm going to go play golf anyway *ahem* then just tell me what YOUR plans are for Memorial Day.  (For my readers in other countries, just pick whatever random holiday you want that will give you a day off.  I'm completely fine with that.  I'm not grading and this doesn't count toward your final standings.  Consider this extra credit.)
