Independence day is an awkward holiday: a single day, traveling through the week. It is fine when connected to a weekend (although the fireworks become tiresome after a while, especially with cats that freak out with the sound) Ė but a single day in the middle of the week sucks, especially when you donít have enough vacation time to take the rest of the week off. We opted for a very simple holiday this year, barely acknowledging the holiday. I wish there was someplace we could see fireworks, without having to park a mile away and listen to everyone else chatter.
