This Saturday, April 7th is National No Housework Day. If you're anything like, your weekend includes quite a few things that fall into the housework category. Well, not this week - join me this Saturday and put off the housework until Sunday, or maybe even the following Saturday. What to do instead? Catch on a book, grab your gear and go for a hike, meet friends for coffee, go golfing, or anything else you enjoy doing more than housework.
