Feelings About MONDAYS!

      When I was a working woman...meaning when I used to go to my 9 to 5  job outside the home...I was only able to get through the day to day drudge of working by looking forward to the weekends!...Ahhhhhh, Weekends!! :-) 
      Maybe it was because of the kind of work I did, taking care of patients at a nursing home, but whatever the reason...the coming of a Monday was never a good thing for me! Mondays meant Go, Go, Go!, selfless work, routine, schedule, bosses breathing down my neck about working overtime!!...*deep breath*
      On the flip side, Mondays also meant accomplishment, a good feeling about what I did for a living, and opportunity to put happy endorphins in my body because of a job well done! :-) ...Soooo, that's what inspired today's post...feelings about Monday...that, and the fact that today is Monday! Ha! Ha!
      I wanna know...what are YOUR feelings about Mondays?!...Are you, like Amaia and her Happy bag (header photo), a Happy Monday type of person?!...

        ...Or are you the type of person who is in denial that Monday is even here?!...

        I've had days like that ^_^ where I just wanted the weekend to last ONE-MORE-DAY...PLEEEEEEEASE!!!...but it never did!! ^_^

      Are you the kind of person that goes one step further and just thinks that...

      ...Mondays are a drag?!...I must admit, I know that feeling...and that Monday...very well! :-]

       Or are you the type of person that wishes that every week, and every calendar, started with a Monday instead of a Sunday so that you could get Monday started earlier?!...

        If you are....I DON'T understand you! ^_^ I have never been in a hurry for Monday to get here...Never!... But Shabnam does understand you, and she made the perfect calendar for you (above)! :-)

       I'm more like this type of person (below)...

         I knew Monday was's now I might as well wrap my brain around it....and do this!! :-]

      But then there are the kind of people who just go with the flow. Mondays are just like Sundays and like Wednesdays...and like every other day! It's all a state of mind. They welcome Mondays!...

       These are also the people who like Jimmy Buffett! :-) ...Okay, guilty! ^_^ This is my present state of mind. Mondays are like Wednesdays and every other day...except Friday. Friday is completely different from Monday. COMPLETELY!! ^_^
       But since my every day life concerns now consist of: "Is it raining or not?!"...not whether it's Monday or Wednesday or whatever, as long as I'm not in too much pain, I go from there!....I crochet and eat and listen to music.!...including Jimmy Buffett! ^_^

             By the way, my washing machine just went on the blink A-G-A-I-N!!!! Grrrrr!....Mondays!!!!!!

Monday, Monday, Monday

Here comes another Monday!
Your frantic work week has begun!
Say goodbye to 'Take It Easy',
and all those things you haven't done.

Four more week days are ahead,
seeming like they'll never end.
But just think, before you know it,
"weekend" will be round again.

Lift your attention, all you mothers;
Week day workers, "Out The Door!"
Time to file, and diaper babies,
walk and scrape things off the floor.

Here comes another Monday!
Whether you want it to, or not!
Say goodbye to 'Take It Easy'.
You've got things to do...a lot!

Monday, Monday, Monday!
Why do you have to come so fast?!
And you stay so long! Why can't
the weekend 'Take It Easy' last?!     


  1. Thank you so much for including our monday print here. I hope you show today who's boss ;)

    1. It was my pleasure, Danielle. And, as you say, I'm showing Monday 'what for'!!! LOL

  2. Oh's definitely dragging today! Thanks for featuring our mug :)

    1. Ha! Ha! Mine is just annoying me to death!! ^_^ Hopefully Tuesday will be better!

  3. I don't mind Mondays most of the time. I'm usually refreshed and ready to get out come Monday and I do my best on that day because of that. But, at the same time, it does mean I still have several days to go and that's hard.
    Hope you have a better Monday today. Sorry about your washer! It's not that old is it?

    1. I'm glad you enjoy Mondays, Bead! :-) Early in the week, early in the month, early in the year, right?! ^_^ I do miss that schedule...for Mondays or whenever!...And about the's the one we recently bought! This is the second time the repair guys have been out to the house! Thankfully we're still under warranty! Ugh!

  4. Hi Deb!!!
    I'm so glad I had extra time to blog today. Thanks for visiting.
    Today feels like MONDAY! But, at least, it's a beautiful sunny day here.

    Hope you're doing well.

    1. Hi Priscila! :-) It was my pleasure to visit your blog yesterday. I loved the big fireplaces and comfy cozy cabins. Colorado is looking good, huh?! ^_^ I'm glad you had sun yesterday. I fear the weather is not gonna be so good around here pretty soon!...Have a good Tuesday! :-)
