You know it is Monday when...

  • you oversleep (of course)
  • a book mysteriously falls off the bookshelf knocking down other things in its wake including a small vase which shatters
  • at the ATM and there is a notice that it is temporarily out of service
  • hot coffee from the overfilled Starbucks spills on your white t-shirt before even making in the door of the office
  • you realize you forgot to include a key person in an important meeting -- even though they were invited you didn't call the conference line
  • out for a little peace at lunch time and run into 2 people you know from work
  • you spill diet coke on the desk
  • time stops at around 3:30 in the afternoon
  • your husband buys exactly everything he was told we didn't need for dinner and nothing we did need
Luckily a glass of wine and what eventually turned into a decent dinner has rescued Monday night.

I *just* sent an email last night to someone I'm working with, titled, "I don't like Mondays." I literally sang the song all day yesterday--I actually went to bed humming "I want to shoot the whole day down." (especially after Eleanor was up screaming for an hour at midnight--OK, technically I went to bed Tuesday morning, but still).

Mondays suck. And days like yours and mine don't help their reputation any more.

Glad to hear it all worked out in the end. And just think: now it's already mid-week!

Tracie -- there is definitely a reason why that song endures. Of course I also kept hearing in my head "someone has a bad case of the Mondays!"

Emily -- Yes, Wednesday is a far better day!

Oh no, evil Monday. I hope the rest of the week has picked up.
