It’s Monday and the week is dragging   12 comments

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.
