Thoughts on Monday

Hello, Monday! May I ask you a question? Why are you always back so quickly? Don’t you have something better to do? Yay, Monday!” Said no one… Ever. Monday should be optional. And because I’m a writer–some days–a bit of poety to sum it all up: Roses are red, Mondays are hard. I’m not good at poetry. COFFEE.

So yeah, it’s Monday again. And no, RESCUE MOON will not be available tomorrow. Due to circumstances and on account of because, I failed my mission. I’m close but I found too many oopses and have added more stuff and…and…and… Yes, excuses, excuses but I promise it–at all the others–will be better books for the delays.

There was a weekend. I worked. Stuff happened. I fell asleep before the 9th inning in both Cardinals games. Luckily, they won anyway. I woke up enough to switch over to the repeat of “On Patrol Live” and promptly fell back to sleep. True story. Y’all know I have frequent bouts of insomnia. I’ll wake up for whatever reason and then it’s hours before I go back to sleep. Well, “OP Live” works to get me back to sleep. I have no clue why but I can start the DVR version and by about the second set of commercials, I’m down for the count. Which doesn’t happen when I’m watching it live. Weird, huh? Anyway, I’ve watched a week-ago-Friday’s edition like four times now and I still have no clue about everything that happened. I totally need to like watch it when I’m awake.

Awesome new book that I listened to over the weekend when doing stuff that didn’t require my full attention. Nalini Singh’s new release STORM ECHO, which is the latest in her Psy-Changeling Trinity series. LOVE IT! Love the series but sometime, the books are only 4 or 4.5 stars. This one is 5 all the way. Lots of twists and turns and I sort of suspected the ending, was pleased when it happened, and the whole thing was entirely satisfying. Currently doing a marathon relisten to the Hidden Legacy series by Ilona Andrews. New release in that one tomorrow.

Monday means Wallyworld and Starbucks. Our temps are down a little and we got a smidge of rain but I still plan to hit the place early so I can get on with the rest of my day. Stuff to do, don’cha know… Like get the damn book finished!

Wow. I’ve discussed Monday, sports, weather, reading and writing. What’s left? Nuttin’ honey. Short post today. You’re welcome. 😉 How’s your Monday going? Good weekend?

  1. I have said ‘Yay, Monday’ but only in a ‘dripping with sarcasm’ way LOL. Love your poem! Sorry you found stuffs that delayed your re-release, but yeah, it’ll be better for it. Take whatever time you need. Yay for baseball and On Patrol: Live! And yes, we go to bed within the first hour of the new episodes, but yay for reruns! Yay for awesome reading! Good luck at Wallyworld today.

    There hasn’t been enough of Monday yet to determine how it’s going. The coffee is hot. I turned funny yesterday morning and pinched something in my neck, but it feels better right now. As does my ongoing hip thing. Today, I’ll be ordering a therapeutic cushion for my chair at work and a mattress topper to go on our new mattress – hoping to cut down on the hip thing. Getting older blows. There might be some potential ‘fun’ at work today. But today is one of my 9-5:30 days at work, so I might miss it entirely. Part of me hopes I do. Part of me hopes it doesn’t occur. And part of me doesn’t want to miss it, if it does occur. :shrug:

      You big tease–knowing what your definition of “fun” can mean. 😉 Coffee is always the answer and growing old totally blows. At least it’s cooler and we got a little rain.

      Hang in there! Later, tater.

  2. Hello. I just discovered your blog … you got me hooked with coffee ☕️ 😋

  3. Tell me, why are we so wired to look so negatively at Mondays? It’s it a great day to start, it is like a beginning, new start, fresh, powerful, first… all these words come to my mind when I see Monday on my calendar. It means that I get to do what I love and the day I get to do that on is on Mondays. I think we should learn to look forward to this day, what do you think?

    • Silver James says:

      Good question and good points. I believe it has to do with the whole kick-back-relaxing-weekend vibe thing and people not wanting to go back to being buttoned up come Monday morning. And it probably has something to do with job satisfaction. Hate your job? Hate going to work after time away. Love your job? Can’t wait to get there first thing Monday morning. I’ve had both kinds in my life. And now, as a writer, Mondays aren’t really relevant. LOL

Got something to say?
