Wow, I made it. I just finished my first 5 day week of actual teaching since December 9th. Now my reward is a 3 day weekend. As I think about 3 day weekends I began to wonder which is better to have off, a Friday or a Monday? I personally like Mondays. Seems like all National holidays revolve around a Monday: Memorial, President, Labor, MLK. On the other hand if I were taking a sick/personal day I like having Fridays off. To me it is easier to put in 4 straight days and get off on a Friday than be sick on a Monday and then still have to complete the 4 day week.
Do you ever notice that shortened weeks sometimes are harder to complete than full weeks. I think it messes up the routine.
That said, are you a Friday or Monday off type of person?
