Is it Party Time? No.

None of this to clean up this year

For the first time in like 5 years, we have no plans for having a gathering at our house for Labor Day. R’s birthday usually falls sometime during the weekend, so it’s a celebration for him and a last hurrah for the pool most of the time.

But people are on vacation. And have plans. And are too far away. And in the end, we can’t afford it anyway.

It’s not like we have caviar and lobster at our gatherings (though we have had lobster a few times, thanks to Doc T). But all the snacky stuff and dips and side dishes and main courses all start to add up and we have more important things to spend that money on, like our electric bill or water bill or the dreaded housing tax bill.

I’m sure we’ll barbecue ourselves, and my parents will probably stop by because they’re so close, but otherwise, this will be the most low-key Labor Day weekend for us in a long time. I always enjoyed it as an excuse to gather everyone together to hang out before the commitments of fall began, but it does not seem to be in the cards.

So I hope that everyone has a safe and happy Labor Day next weekend. We’ll just be floating in the pool, trying to enjoy the end of summer.
