Traveling from the Island to Rye, the traffic gods continue to favor us on the last day of my mini vacation. I can't believe this is the kind of weekend that Geoffrey has every week. I think the entire balance of life is off with a five day work week and a measly two days for weekend, especially since things seem to have changed course in the last fifty years: we now work harder and longer during the week. I can't imagine trying to cope with raising a family with two parents who work the typical five day work week.
