Uhm, yah, hi.
I know it’s been a while. I’ve been busy. Monday caught me totally off guard. I’m not ready for this yet – and as nice as the weekend was (happy belated Mothers’ Day to all the moms out there!), I want a do-over. Or at least some extra sleep.
You know, there are those people who can get up on Mondays, ready and willing to tackle the week ahead. Superstars who are at their best and get a jump on things, then run with it.
I am not one of those people. I need to gradually ease into my Mondays. Some strong coffee, a bit of weekend chat with the colleagues, read the online news, deal with the email – just a bit of brain foreplay to get it interested in the tough stuff that’s sure to come later in the day and for the rest of the week. I usually get that to some degree on my Mondays – but not today.
Today I arrived, addled with the remnants of this stupid headcold that just won’t quit. That in itself has made it hard to get my mind focused on the tasks at hand. Also, I was tossed into things almost immediately, dealing with the leftover trauma of the weekend incidents. Not so much of the fun.
If it didn’t mean I’d have to deal with Monday again, I’d totally ask for a do-over of this day too. Instead I’ll plod through, and hope for the best. Only 5 hours until I can escape, get some (more) sleep, and try again tomorrow.
