Labor Day

So, shouldn't Labor Day be called Un-Labor Day or No Labor Today or NonLabor Day? Just wondering since it is a national holiday and most folks do not work. . . or labor. Just wondering.

I actually did LABOR today. Cleaned house, did yard work, and GRADED PAPERS. Plus, I had to go to school to organize lesson plans for the substitute I have tomorrow. We have a golf tournament tomorrow so, lucky me, I have a sub. Unfortunately, it's always harder to prepare for a sub than it is to just be at school. Those of you who teach know exactly what I'm talking about; it's never easy being absent as a schoolteacher.

(Don't feel too bad for me though. . . I did play a round of golf today as well.)

Anyway, just thought I'd check in with y'all and I wanted to provide you with some info on LABOR DAY. You know, this is a full-service educational blog. :) FYI: Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

This web address will take you to the Department of LABOR website and explains all you could ever want to know about the holiday. Enjoy.
