Monday, Monday

I feel like I could use another weekend to rest up from the one I had.  Only this time I wouldn't tell anyone I am at home.  I would love to lay in bed and read a book - a book just for fun, not to learn anything or study anything or improve my conscious contact.  I would love to take a nap.  I would love to watch all the shows I have on my DVR - weeks of back to back favorite TV shows that I haven't had time to watch.   It is supposed to be in the mid 70ºs this afternoon, I would love to take a run in the mid-afternoon sunshine.  

Instead I will shuffle myself into my office before it is even light outside.  I will put on a suit and make up and hair spray.  I will put a smile on my glossed-up lips.  I will make every effort to put in a good day of work for a good day of pay.  I will make a special effort to have a positive impact on the folks with whom I come in contact.  I could conceivably grab a tiny nap between work and Biblical School.  I will be there until after 9 o'clock tonight.  I love it and I never feel tired while I am there.  

I think I need to take a day or two off work.  I am super tired.  I may have the opportunity to do that later this week.  I may also have the opportunity to become unemployed later this week.  Decisions will be made about the budget on Thursday.  

I know that no matter what happens, I will be fine - as long as I put my trust in God and not in people, places, and things.

Let's stay sober today, OK?

I vote on a no communications day.
We all stay home, turn of emails and phones.
You don't contact me and I won't contact you.
Ahhhh that would be blissful.

I vote we take a day off and all of us make art!

OK.

Wait a MINUTE here! A day off? Yep, sounds good, Pam and SW...as long as it's not Sunday evening!

See, already the alcoholic in me says, "OK, I'll do it...except for-" (such-and-such -grin!)"

Happy trudging...

I seem to be in the same place myself...

Spring fever anyone?

I got the ole spring fever in a bad way. Two of my coworkers are on vacation this week. I can't help but be a bit green w/envy. But I will have some time off soon. I think.

Schedule some days off. Soon please.
And just for your information, I never use hair spray.

Syd said...

I vote for my going back on the boat and taking a nap. More fog today and it's a great day for a nap.

Scott W said...

Well, it's not Sunday evening.

steveroni said...

For dAAve...hairspray. Do you mean to drink, or wear? (or both!)

Mary, I promise (maybe?) to never use your comment space for a private message again.

I took the afternoon off. I just woke up from the most glorious nap! I even turned my phone off, which I NEVER do.
