Conquer Monday Like a BOSS!

It’s Monday, and I usually just want to crawl under the covers and hide and wish for it to be Saturday morning again. But for some reason that wish never comes true.

What is the trick to making wishes come true anyway?  If you have the secret, please share!

This Monday is different then most Mondays.  I actually got to sleep in a little bit, 30 minutes longer than usual, WOOHOO!  Darn internal clock only works on days it doesn’t need to and doesn’t work on days it does need to.  Please tell me this doesn’t happen to just me?

I did lay in bed, surfing Facebook, Instagram, Pinning things on Pinterest and checking emails until the kids came running downstairs and jumping into my bed.  This Monday is a School Holiday, HIP HIP HOORAY!  The kids got to sleep in too!

And its also National Boss’s Day! I know, so what, right?

I approach this day not like the usual employee.  See, I am self-employed with zero employees (the best way to be self employed).  I take my boss (myself) shopping and buy lunch.

Today I will have my kids with me, which to me makes it even more special that I get to take a day off from work and spend it with my kids.  I once heard this statement at a cub scout meeting “My work will always be there, but my kids will only be this age once”.  This is so true, and I cherish every minute with them and enjoy the time we have together!

Well, maybe not the times they don’t listen, but we can’t all be perfect, right?

So What is Boss’s Day and how did it start?

National Boss’s Day is observed annually on October 16. Employees across the United States show appreciation and thankfulness to their bosses for being kind and fair throughout the year by celebrating National Boss’s Day.  (If the 16th of October falls on a weekend, then this day is celebrated on the closest working day.)

The HISTORY of National Boss’s Day, is a secular holiday that began in 1958.  Patricia Bays Haroski worked as a secretary for State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Illinois when she registered “National Boss’s Day” with the United States Chamber of Commerce.  She selected October 16 because it was her father’s birthday and at the time, he was also her employer! It was four years later, in 1962, that Illinois Governor, Otto Kerner, backed Haroski’s registration and officially proclaimed Boss’s day. In 1979, Hallmark Cards introduced Boss’s Day cards to their inventory. (Source: National Day Calendar)

So, whether your employed, self-employed, a stay at home mom (SAHM) or a housewife make sure to celebrate the day!  After all you are employed, so be thankful for that, you don’t have to like your boss but you do like your paycheck, right?

If you are self-employed, do something nice for yourself, after all you do deserve it.

And for those SAHMs and housewives treat yourself to something special, you deserve it as much as any company boss.

Hey husbands reading this, do something nice for the wife, being a SAHM/housewife is a JOB.  After all, doing laundry, cleaning the house and changing diapers is not a sought-after job.

Lets all conquer this Monday – LIKE A BOSS!
