[Taken from an interesting thread on the old forum:]
Even though we we’re in the hospitality business and we like hosting guests and especially like earning revenue, the reality of the matter is that we sometimes need to take a break.
I have no problem with blocking out days in my reservation book and putting a sign in the door that says, “Closed for the day.”
I’m actually doing this tomorrow!
I haven’t had a day off in 9 1/2 months. I plan to watch the late, late movie and will sleep in.
My schedule for tomorrow reads something like this.
1. Sleep in.
2. Feed the cats their breakfast.
3. Take a warm bath.
4. Have a bite to eat.
5. Take a nap.
6. Have lunch and read a paperback.
7. Take a nap.
8. Feed the cats.
9. Have dinner.
10. Watch a movie.
11. Go to bed.
I’m not doing any paperwork. I’m not answering the phone since I have an answering machine. I plan to wallow in laziness and self indulgence.
