Big Bad Monday


[Image by Lord Alex at DeviantART]

It’s only 10AM and it’s already shaping up to be one of those days.

I’m not coping with this series of bumps in the road that have come along.

It’s a bit like standing on double white lines in busy traffic.

I really don’t like Mondays.

  1. it’s still Sunday here but I, too, am not looking forward to Monday, it’s just one those days you wish it was Friday or Tuesday…


  2. Since we used to operate 24/7, we had a complicated system whereby we worked 2 days, 2 nights, 2 on stand-by and four days off.

    So, I didn’t mind Mondays when it worked out that I’d worked the previous week, and been on standby over the weekend … but Friday was the ‘new Monday’


    I luff you back. I will do a proper post about this because I don’t like to be all cryptic and mysterious. Needless to say, all is well, apart from a few hurdles here and there!!

    You’re right. You have to just plunge into days like this, don’t you? And hope your feet will keep touching the bottom. I can’t tell you how glad I am to read your comment. XXX

    I know. It’s a psychological barrier for me. I think I make Mondays big and bad because I expect them to be bad. Must stop doing that!

    It does seem to help. Thanks, hon.

    And to you too. You give the best hugs!!!

    You have a great sense of humour. I love the word Aloha – it just sounds so cheery. If I could say Aloha every day I wouldn’t be able to stop smiling!

    My friend, Jules, who is a nurse has a similar system where she begins the working week on a Thursday. It seems to vastly improve her state of mind even though she works Saturdays. I don’t think I’ve ever heard her say once that she’s suffering from Thursdayitis!


  4. Ok Sel, here’s what you need to do. Rug yourself up nice and warm and go to any one of your favourite places for a lovely brisk walk. Once you feel the cold bracing wind on your cheeks and take lots of deep breaths, I guarantee the world will look rosier.

    Failing that a bottle of something good would be my next choice. πŸ™‚

    I hate Mondays too but for totally different reasons 😦


  5. Well, I am a bit late on the scene and I know Monday is nearly over with you now – so that is good. And I know you survived it cos you just left me a comment.

    We all get days like that. I know I do. And I’m never sure how to handle them and tend just to bury my head and hope it will pass. But brisk walking is def a sound idea – I do that if I feel narked!!

    Hope all feels better now.


  6. Hope you don’t mind jet-lagged hugs. They smell like recycled airplane air, but they are heartfelt and sincere.

    May your bumps soon vanish like the steam rising from your morning cuppa.

    And if they refuse to vanish, I’m sure I can dig up a steamroller that will help smooth things out for you.


  7. Mondays. I guess it’s what you’re looking for in a Monday. The start of a new week can bring the excitement of what this inch of life will bring that’s new, or the drudgery of knowing it will be exactly the same. Or perhaps the agony of knowing something’s coming that you don’t want to deal with. If that’s the case, then it’s better to get it over with so you can move on. πŸ˜€

    Okay, I KNOW I’m behind the times, what with the writing conference and all, but I can’t figure out your twitter about “still recovering”! I skimmed through the entries (will come back to comment later when kids are in bed) and I can’t find a single entry that says recovering from what! Are you hurt? Are we talking physically, mentally, job oriented? AH! I hope all is well!

    Luv ya!


    Right on. It’s like Dory says in Finding Nemo – ‘Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.’

    I made it through that horrible Monday. And I found the secret for doing so – coffee and chocolate in bulk. As well as pretending it’s Tuesday.

    I survived it. Ended up better than I thought. Whew!

    Brisk walking is an incredible tonic. It has saved my sanity many a time!

    It has been better. So nice to hear from you, hon!

    I know exactly what you mean. Hope your Monday was bearable, hon!

    It would actually be very handy to have a steamroller around; but no need, all is well!

    You are so sweet to worry. I was actually recovering from eating that horrible cake. Licorice and beetroot. Truly disgusting. I didn’t mean to cause you concern. I can’t wait to hear how your conference went!


  9. This too shall pass. Monday is not a great day for a lot of people, it seems. I hope the rest of the week is brilliant!!!! Hang in there dear Sel…

    Hugs, G


    I think I’m just tired. Too much going on. Nursing a cold and all that. You always cheer me up!

    You’re not alone. I do the very same thing. I often misread things and think ‘You did WHAT with a WHAT?’ πŸ˜†


  11. And you always cheer me up. I’m having another lousy week, on several fronts. 😦

    Send hugs when you can, ok!!!! No rush, I know you’ve got a lot to deal with. Does it ever end…


    A million hugs being launched to you now. We are being tested for some reason, G. They say it’s character building. 😯
