My dad used to work six days a week running the small-town store he owned, then had Sundays off, which seemed to be the norm with a lot of my friend’s fathers, too. He enjoyed his one week of vacation a year. Most of the jobs my husband and I have had provided weekends off and weeks (or months) of vacation. So maybe things are getting better? When we have time and leisure to philosophize about whether or not we are working too much, then we probably aren’t.
