"It's just another manic Monday, oh oh, wish it were Sunday, oh oh, cuz, that's my fun day, oh oh. . . ."  Who doesn't love the Bangles? 

Mondays are probably one of the two most hated days of the week - I'll bet Wednesdays (hump day) are a close second.  I've never googled this information, I'm just guessing.  Why do we hate Mondays so much?  I can tell you why for most of my life, I've hated Mondays.  When I was in school, it was the "day back" after weekend fun!  When I worked, it was the start of a long week and the furthest day from payday!  Now that I'm here in Wisconsin, I dislike Mondays because it is my "catch up" day.  I don't do much work on the weekends and the house literally looks like a tornado went through, not to mention, the laundry is backed up 2 days, dishes are piled up, shopping needs done, etc, etc. 

Sunday night is popcorn night - there always lots of greasy dishes waiting for Monday clean up!
Not airing my dirty laundry here - this is clean laundry that needs folded!  LOL

I know I have no room to complain here - I mean, most of you probably  have a real job and hate Mondays for different reasons.  It seems like no matter what role I find myself in - student, work force, college student, stay at home mom - I dislike Mondays.  However, on  a more positive note, once I get past the Monday and back into my routine, it is usually about Wednesday, then over the hump, and looking forward to the weekend - just to start it all over again!

James says our life is like a "vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away."  James 4:14     Oh those words become more true for me as each week passes and each season goes by so quickly.   Maybe I should cherish the Mondays!

Have a wonderful week!


  1. I do cherish Mondays!
    Its the day i get most of the kids out of my hair so i can catch up on things in peace.
    We also have Family Home Evening on Mondays to we always end the day in a lot of fun together.
    Maybe you could put something extra into your Monday to force yourself to look forward to it?
    'Im thinking a Chocolate feast at the end of the day...

  2. I'm with you, Rhonda. I like to enjoy the weekends and I too let things go. I think that's how it is for most women. Maybe trying some of the ideas above would make it better. Of course, chocolate always makes things look better. HA.

  3. Oh a Chocolate feast- now there's something I could look forward to - even in a snowstorm! THanks for the idea!!!!

  4. I don't seem to mind Mondays too much. Must be because the hubbers doesn't eat much at home on the weekends and the dog isn't here much and the kid isn't here much-so sometimes I get things done over the weekend. And I don't have a real job to dread going to on Monday. Except when I have to clean at Michelle's and I don't dread that. Yeah-I'd go with rewarding myself with lots of chocolate on Monday evening-maybe that will help!☺
