I am not opposed to it. Since it falls in the summer, I usually do something.  When the kids were younger, I had a standing coffee date with a friend outside in the sun for a few hours while our kids played. Recently, we have been camping or traveling on my birthday. If I am around, I will work during the day and celebrate in the evening. :-)

I make sure anyone that works for me does not... but mine is in December and the end of the year can be a crazy push to get this property closed so we celebrate on the ends of the day. Save the meat for slinging real estate hash.

What do define as work? I will do work from my home office but I will usually try to avoid meeting with customers and showing houses especially when I know writing an offer is not imminent.  It's the one day of the year when I like to schedule something nice for myself.
