Monday's Suck

Of course having an awful Monday is better than the alternative but it's hard to remember that when you have a day like I have. I hate having bad days & I hate complaining about it because I know I'm a very lucky, blessed person that lives a wonderful life. BUT today wasn't good. I've been sniffing, sneezing & coughing all day. My eyes are all watery & I'll be passing out soon because I took a Benadryl. Everything is getting a little blurry already.  It seems like I just got over this. I'm sick of being sick. It probably has something to do with this weather. I'm not going to bore you by posting about how much I hate cold weather. We've been there, done that. I'm not going to talk about how yesterday morning when we left for Mass at 6:30 the temperature was at least 30 degrees colder than it was at 10:30 Saturday night when we got home or how the wind was blowing approximately 50 mph & chilled you to the bone. Luckily, this afternoon it was a balmy 70 degrees when I left work. Supposedly, the cold weather should be gone.  I'll believe it when I see it. To think I was considering a pedicure Saturday since it looked like it was flip flop weather. Oh flip flops how I love thee!!! I have 2 really cute new pair too.

Back to the bad day. 5 people were laid off today. While I wasn't affected it's still scary & sad. I hate to see people lose their jobs & as much as I complain about working I don't want to lose mine. Not because I'm one of those people that just loves my job but because the thought of looking for another job makes me sick to my stomach. I have some great friends at work too that I would miss.

So finally the work day was over. Yay, I could go home. Apparently, there are lots of people driving around town that don't feel the same way I do & they don't want to get home as fast as humanly possible. Yes, I'm talking about you, guy in the little SUV like car that sat through a green light waiting to make a left turn when there was NOBODY anywhere near you but waited for the green arrow. I'm sure the look he gave me in his side mirror was to show me he was boss & not moving if he didn't want to. You know what? I don't care, I blew my horn 'cause that's how I roll!!!

Then there's the school zone. I don't know who is in charge of setting the school zone lights but they're not doing a very good job. Everybody knew when the time was changing so why is it at 4:45 in the afternoon, the lights are blinking when the sign clearly says the school zone ends at 4:00? What's even more frustrating is that going the opposite direction they fixed the sign the other day.

When I got home I found yet another piece of mail from the federal government. This time it's a post card. Any idea what it said??? It said that I should've received my census paperwork in the mail a few days ago & to please fill it out & mail it back otherwise I'd be arrested. This brought me to question just how serious they are about enforcing the arrest thing. Filling out the form is no big deal but I'm curious. I suggested to Dean that we not fill it out & just see if they will actually come arrest us. I really don't think they will. If they do then once we're bailed out or whatever we can go on Sean Hannity's show & talk about how ridiculous it is when all the riff raff is running around breaking the law killing people & such, the feds are arresting us for not answering a few questions. Dean quickly squashed this idea.

So while all of this isn't really, really horrible & I know there are people out there much worse off than me,, it is a bad day for me & I'm glad I'm home!!


  1. So sorry you had a bad day!! Mondays are generally rough for me! I am glad that you were not one of those that lost their job yesterday!!

  2. Monday did suck. It was horrific. And I got that dang piece of census mail too. I said, here we go, another $330 million spent to tell us we SHOULD have received the census.
