OMG, It's Monday!

Monday is the day the ice cream shop is closed.

Anything annoy you about Mondays?

Seems like in your volunteer business pros. would also be cons?

And thanks, Lazy and Khan, my do-list today includes boxing up the kitty litter, garbage and recycling. Then, I'm done and out to play.

The kids are back in school, the cars are out of the neighborhood, the customers are out of the stores, the roads are clear between rush hours, the restaurants & coffee shops are habitable again, and of course all the recreational facilities are wide open...

We need to get all our shopping finished before Thanksgiving and the holiday rush, because the next time after that we walk into a store it'll be 2009.

I'm finding this whole "work" thing to be reeeally inconvenient. And it definitely isn't conducive to getting enough sleep. I'm just hoping the government doesn't waste all it's credit on banks and auto mfr's because I need a bailout so I can bail out (of the work force).

I celebrate every Monday by eating my favorite food - Pizza.

It reminds me how lucky I am to be FIRED.

So true.

My neighbor starts his car and leaves for work at 7AM (Monday through Friday); I do hear it, but he is very quiet about it. At 7:30AM the local military installation plays reveille (on work days). At 7:30AM on Mondays, the trash truck starts on the next street over.

I forgive all of them; I roll over and go back to sleep.

It's terrible how work interferes with your life.

Life is Great!!!! (when you're FIRE'D!!!)

And one Monday per month I go to the Doctor's office for b/p check, and every 3rd one of those Mondays he draws blood to monitor triglycerides. My appointments are always for 9am when his office opens. I get there at 8:30, visit with the nurse, head for room #1 to wait for Doc, get checked over, pay my $7 or $8 (ins pays the rest), chat with the receptionist as she come in (always late), and I'm out the door between 9 and 9:05 to head up to the coffee shop.

They all enjoyed the peppers and tomatoes that I took in for them throughout the growing season, so today they suggested that the next time we have lasagna or something else really good, I should bring in some for them......they said they're not to proud to eat leftovers for lunch. Hmmmmm.....I'm fixing a big batch of bagna calda for supper tonight....maybe I'll take 'em in a mason jar of it tomorrow! Garlic's good for your health, right!?

Congrats, NR4P! But be warned, apparently there is a long newbie period. I've been at it 11 weeks, and had to be reminded by an old pro at ER that the proper expression is "TGIM."

I usually wake up early and get up, why not, I don't have to go to w*rk! Yippee!

Took a one hour walk today, and really got into it, it took three hours but I didn't have to get back anywhere. I'm remembering why it is I wanted to be RE.

I'm still working also, and today sure was Monday. Interestingly, I feel as good as I'm going to feel all week long on Monday - it will be all downhill from here until Friday @ 5:00!

I'm hearing a Mamas & Papas song in my head. Monday, Monday...

there is still a little brain cell in my stress response control region that fires on Monday AMs when i am still half awake. it doesn't happen every week, but...it lingers...
once i'm fully awake, it's TGIM and full speed ahead. If I feel like it.
