Today is President's Day here in the US, and I'm one of the lucky people whose place of work is off for the day. I slept in late and have been lounging leisurely, but I feel like I should be doing something! What do you like doing on your days off? Do you feel bad if you don't do something productive? What would you suggest I do?

On my days off I just relax online, cook good food, and try to get some exercise in during the day. I want to reach a goal of twenty responses on mylot for the day, then I will perhaps do 30 or so minutes on the treadmill, perhaps an hour if I feel up to it, and then today I am going to steam the crab legs I have in my freezer for a delicious meal. Maybe I will read a book, but I doubt it, I will probably just get back on here to get some more responses in hehe. I don't really feel bad if I don't do anything too productive, I want to relax on these days, I can be productive on days that I have to do things hehe. Spending a day on the internet is productive enough for me! Just do what makes you feel good, you have the day off! Happy mylotting, and have a great day!

Today is my normal day off, but my kids are out of school for the holiday. It is not quite 1 p.m., and already, I have cleanedmy house, done over half the laundry, took the kis to the doctor, went to the pharmacy, and now, I am on my computer. As much as I would like to have a lazy, do nothing day, I am just not the type to do that. I am one that feels bad if I am not doing something productive! As for you, enjoy your day off. If you feel like doingsomething, do it, if not, it will be there when you are ready to do it.

I have a day off too ~ : ) Sleeping in late is what I always do on my days off. Usually, I would go somewhere, like to shops, visit friends, the movie theater, etc., but when I don't have something to do, I just go on the computer to check my email, then to check various sites (like Mylot). I always try encourage myself to do something more productive, but it just never happens. xD My suggestions for you? Well, I'm not exactly sure since I don't know what you like to do. Maybe talk with other Myloters? : )
