It’s Monday and the week is dragging

I know, I hardly ever talk about work, mostly because it’s boring. But I have had so much time off this summer that I have had to work faster and smarter than ever, and so it is dreary dull. I don’t have the job where I get to visit small businesses (shop) any more, so I am just sitting in the office a whole lot.

Anyway… Monday morning. I didn’t really think it was Monday when the alarm went off, but I finally convinced myself it must be true. So I crawled out of bed, and began my week.

I managed to block up the toilet, then I managed to dump my raw egg on the stove trying to get it into the pan of water. After I cleaned the bathroom and the stove, I did get myself showered and dressed and out the door. And I remembered to drop off my neighbor’s birthday card and gift. Sadly, I got no knitting time in while watching the local weather forecast. After all, something had to give. Amazingly, I was on time for work!

Once there, I plowed through my to-do list (not as great a list as a Friday list, I have to say) and I feel like I made progress on some things that have been lurking about half done. But still. I looked up, and it was only 3:30. But that’s OK, I thought, because it’s Tuesday, and the week is almost half over.

HA! A while later it occurred to me that if it was Monday this morning, then it probably still is Monday. It was a sad moment.

This week is going to be very long, I think.

  1. I know just what you mean! After a week off, Monday morning was waaaaay too early! Then I got to work to 300+ emails waiting! I sure hope Friday comes soon! I hope your week is getting better! 🙂 (And thanks for visiting my blog!)

        1. I am sure it will – funny, when I was encouraging you to just go for it with a prize, I never thought I would be the winner! Now I am excited to see what creative thing you came up with.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
