THINGS I LOVE ABOUT A 4-5AY WORK WEEK

Everytime there's a holiday when I get the day off, it only reminds me of having to actually work 4-day out of the week. So I thought I'd share this little humor with you to give you an idea of what goes through my mind.



Things I Would Love About Only Having To Work 4-Days Out Of The Week.

5. Frankly, it's the way I should be accustomed to working.
4. It further proves I can do five days worth of work in four days.
3. Only four days of traffic to deal with.
2. By the time I remember that Tuesday is not Monday, it's Wednesday already.
1. It gives me enough of a taste that we should try a 3-day work week.

Perfect thing to do this weekend

National WWII Museum Marks Memorial Day with Special Commemoration Honoring Fallen Service Members
 – To commemorate the brave men and women who lost their lives ensuring our nation’s freedom, and stress to all Americans the importance of remembering these heroes, The National WWII Museum has planned a day of special events and ceremonies for Memorial Day, May 28, 2012. The events will begin at 10 a.m. with a patriotic band performance followed by a Memorial Day ceremony. The ceremony will include special tributes by relatives of service members who lost their lives during World War II.
Other scheduled events for the day include a performance by the Museum’s Victory Belles at 2:15 p.m., followed by the traditional observance of a moment of silence at 3 p.m. CDT.
For those unable to attend the ceremony in person, www.mymemorialday.org, a website created by the Museum, tells the stories of service men and women who died in defense of our nation’s freedom. The site features images and artifacts from the Museum’s collection and offers readers a number of ways they can honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
The Museum’s new US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center, scheduled to open in January of 2013, will pay tribute to all of the branches of the US Armed Forces who were active in the war, including the Coast Guard and Merchant Marines. The pavilion will contain a spectacular collection of macro artifacts including a restored B-17 G Flying Fortress, as well as an interactive submarine experience based on the final mission of the USS Tang, and an exhibit featuring a wall of images of all 464 WWII Medal of Honor recipients with interactive kiosks detailing the military and personal history of each

Donna Summer tribute

The last time I saw her I guess it was on American Idol back in 2008 I think and she looked great and sounded perfect. Sad to hear Donna Summer died Thursday morning after a battle with lung cancer. Lovingly named the "Queen of Disco," the 63-year-old was in Florida at the time of her death. The 5-time Grammy award winner rose to fame in the '70s with hits like "Hot Stuff," "Bad Girls" and "Love to Love You Baby." All played on Magic thru the years. Following the news of Summer's passing, the singer's family released a statement saying that they "are at peace celebrating her extraordinary life and her continued legacy." Donna Summer was working on a forthcoming album at the time of her death. Summer is survived by her husband, Brooklyn Dreams co-founder Bruce Sudano, their two children -- Brooklyn and Amanda -- and her daughter, Mimi, from a previous marriage.

MOTHERS DAY IS SUNDAY

WHAT MOMS REALLY WANT FOR MOTHER'S DAY
  • To have my 14-year-old answer a question without rolling her eyes in that "Why is this person my mother?" way.
  • Five pounds of chocolate that won't add twenty.
  • A shower without a child peeking through the curtain with a "Hi ya, Mom!" just as I put razor to my ankle.
  • A fulltime cleaning person who looks like Brad Pitt.
  • For my teenager to announce, "Hey, Mom! I got a full scholarship and a job all in the same day!"
  • A grocery store that doesn't have candy/gum/cheap toys displayed at the checkout line.
  • To have a family meal without a discussion about bodily secretions.
  • To be able to step on a plane with my toddlers and not have some pencil-neck-yuppie-geek moan, "Oh, no! Why me?"

Happy Mother's Day
