Monday morning blues

Today is probably one of the first mondays when i didnt have "the monday morning blues"!

Usually every Monday, actually not Monday but Sunday i start getting monday morning blues....

Friday evenings are the best.. when going back home.. i am like a kid contemplating a 2 month long vacation.. the entire weekend is before you... and i start planning what all should i do.. irrespective of whether i do them or not.. i feel decidedly happy... one of the happiest moments .. comes every week without fail!!! :-) And friday evening, i am usually alone.. so even if i am dead tired, i try not to sleep early like i usually do.. i want to enjoy every moment of the 2 day long weekend!!! So i try to catch a movie.. some movie, any movie on TV! If there's nothing worth watching i get very disappointed and glum.. and i try to catch not just the 9pm movie but the 11pm movie too... just the thought that i can chillax and get up late.. really late.. maybe in the afternoon.. just the thought that i actually not only have an option of lying in bed the entire day but can actually exercise it.. just the thought itself is intoxicating!!!! So i like sleeping late on Friday evening.. just so that i can , if i want to, exercise that option. In reality, (these days), i like getting up and going for a morning show of some movie.. so that the entire day is ahead of me. But still...

Saturday mornings are also great.. with the entire day stretching ahead in all its glory.. there is still a sunday to fall back on... So i like going out on saturdays.. i like it when my days are full... Basically I am very happy on saturdays too!!!
The build up to monday morning
Sunday mornings..ok... life is still good..
Sunday afternoon... time is running out.. need to do some activity to not think bout work
Sunday evening .... some thoughts of work start trickling in.. long face.. sulking in one corner.... start throwing a fit if i am at home not doing anything.. trouble my husband "at least lets go for a walk" anything to take my mind off tom!!! So end up playing scrabble!! Almost in tears at night.. ok so i am exaggerating... but thats the way i feel...
Monday mornings.. drag my feet to work.. literally.. not kidding... try to go as late as i can!!!

But today there was a spring in my step.. no not getting a promotion.. not getting a raise.. nothing of the sort.. actually i got completely, thoroughly bored yesterday.. for the want of company!! My husband is in Bangalore... so i had the day to myself.. not entirely.. my cousin and her mom were there in the morning.. did time pass.. they left in the noon.. then made lunch, ate at 3... and then got bored.. how much TV can one watch, really!!!! And it was raining continuously... was very depressing.. so the minute rain stopped, went to crossword .. bought a lot of books.. felt good instantly.. it started raining again, so was hanging out at crossword, reading.. then came back home at around 4.. again nothing to do.. so watched superstar (some boring movie).. then washed clothes to pass time.. watched some more TV!!!!!

By the end of the day, i was actually longing to be at work... not healthy i know!!! I am sure this will pass soon and i will soon get cured.. all of you all please pray for me!!! ;-)

Don't worry you'll be back to your normal self by the end of this week :) Basically you have just become too dependant on your husband...that's inevitable I guess & not a bad thing at all!! I went to Oxford too this weekend & bought 3 books...all by Indian authors (thought of giving them a chance)...they're all funny books! Will read them & tell you how they are so you can buy them too!!
