Leap year comes once every four years. We get an extra day: an extra 24 hours, 1,440 minutes or 86,400 seconds (can you tell I’m a bean counter?) to do whatever it is we want to do. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. We’ll have to wait another four years for that extra time.
What will I do? I’m not sure at this moment, but since I have a few weeks to plan, I may take a day off. Feb. 29 is a Monday, so a long weekend sounds like an intriguing possibility. Maybe I’ll make the day my Artist’s Date for the week, a longer-than-usual time by myself to do whatever I want to do, wherever I want to do it. It sounds selfish but I know how helpful recharging my batteries is for making the rest of my day flow smoothly.
What will you do with your extra 86,400 seconds? Remember, once it’s gone, you can’t get it back.
