Weekends #reflectiveteacher #paragraphblogging

While browsing on the net to find something to write about, I found a really interesting blogging challenge.  Although this challenge has ended last year, found some very challenging questions I would LOVE to answer!!!
First one... What role do weekends and holidays play in your teaching??
To be honest, I can't tell that I am having a rest at the weekends!! I continue working, sometimes even more hours on Saturdays...
Sundays are a bit different, I usually have the mornings off...
This means, I do not teach, but, I have to do the housework (cook, clean, do laundry and everything I cannot do on weekdays), plus studying an planning for the next week, a webinar or a seminar maybe and off to teach in the late afternoon...
I don't know if this helps...
On the one hand, weekends and holidays are important, first because we need the rest and the time to do what we like, "re-charge" batteries...
On the other hand I am a person who cannot actually sit around do nothing... Some people are like that, they return home from work and just lie down or sit on the couch and do not move...
Sometimes I am so tired from work and I sleep really early, but if I stay laze for more than a day, I get crazy....
I try to find ways to keep busy...
Summer holidays make me mad!!!
So I don't really know if weekends and resting actually help my teaching except maybe that it gives me time to plan the next week...
(I am strange, I know....)
