There is something about Mondays that I have always hated.
After the short weekend has flown by it’s the dread of getting up early for work on Monday mornings. If I had a busy weekend, including running errands, going places, taking care of household chores, etc., by the time Sunday night gets here I’m dead tired. I usually wash my hair on Sunday evenings so that just adds to the busy weekends.
So years ago I decided to take advantage of the Compressed Work schedule at work. Instead of the usual 8 hour work day I work eight 9 hour days, one 8 hour day and I have every other Monday off. I look forward to my 3 day weekends but the bad part is having to work those 9 hour days. It took me a long time to get use to this schedule but I’m surviving. Commuting from Maryland to Virginia doesn’t help. But having that 3 day weekend enables me to spread my weekend activities out and get some rest at the same time.
I still don’t like the other Monday when I do have to go to work but having the other Monday off makes it tolerable. I guess 😦 Today I had to come in and I was so sleepy. I’m sure staying up later than I should doesn’t help the situation.
