Today is July 4, Independence Day. Like many parents, I’m celebrating my independence by extra household chores!
What is it about a holiday that inspires us to actually do more work rather than less? Maybe it’s our priorities–the boss don’t care if your windows haven’t been cleaned in years or that your front needs weeding. So a “holiday” isn’t actually freedom from work, it’s the freedom to prioritize your work according to your own needs.
