Monday's Suck

Oh the pain of returning to work after five glorious days off. Five whole days during which there was not one episode of panic, anger, or that anxious knot in the pit of my stomach. There was only sunshine, peace, yard work, cooking with the spring-breaking college daughter, a trip to Home Depot and the movies with the spring-breaking teacher daughter, coffee with my sister. A glorious, glorious lack of responsibility, obligations, and other annoying stuff. And even a snow storm to force us inside to entertain ourselves with baking and movies and napping. Cable Movies on Demand is a great invention.

Now it's back to business. Not only is today a full day at the office, but I somehow managed to agree to teach a university course for a month of Monday nights without checking the "Dancing With The Stars" schedule. What was I thinking? Hopefully there will be episodes on Hulu. Hulu is a great invention.

Happy Monday. And by happy Monday I mean Monday's suck. Too bad the odds of winning Power Ball are so ridiculous or I'd be hoping for some big money pay out to come rescue me. Of course, I'd have to actually buy a Power Ball ticket, which I think is a huge waste of money. Anyway, I guess I'm gonna have to rescue myself if I want to be rescued from the daily grind. There's got to be a way to work from home!

Hope you didn't come here for a cheerful dose of happiness. You should know me better than that! Check back in with me in a few hours and I will have successfully transitioned back into the real world and be less of a Debbie Downer. Plus I will have had a cup of coffee.

If/when you figure out a way to have only days filled with sunshine and things you love...let me know. I am right there with you. :-)

I was full of suckitude yesterday morning as well. However my students were very pleasant and full of stories about soccer games and new guinea pigs that they were itching to share with me, so I perked up.
