Sunday Sunday

Sundays are maybe my least favorite day of the week, even surpassing Monday’s craptasticness. With Monday, you know what you’re getting–it’s almost supposed to suck. It’s built into our 5 day workweek…the first day back to work is always going to hurt.

But Sundays have the guise of being a weekend day. A day of rest. A day of relaxation. And maybe, if I was happy in my job, I would be able to accept them for that.

Unfortunately, since I’m unhappy in my job, Sundays have an air of impending dread hiding behind every relaxing moment, every leisurely activity. In the movie Office Space, there’s a character who says “looks like someone has a case of the Mondays”. I get a case of the Sundays.

Even when we’re off doing fun things, like the bbq we went to today (I personally love the fact that it’s November and I was at a bbq with folks in tshirts and shorts!), I know that the work week is lurking right on the other side of night, which dampens my enjoyment of the day. Just one more example of how being unhappy with your job can affect all parts of your life.

I’ve got a lot to look forward to this week though, so I’m actually excited for things to get started. On Tuesday, I’m going to be a part of Blog Secret. The secret that I get to host here at Ramble Ramble is fantastic and very poignant, and my secret will be out there somewhere in the world too. On Wednesday, I’m going to be a part of the 20 Something Bloggers Bigger Blog Swap. It’s my first blog swap or guest posting, so I’m a little nervous ( I want to do right by my blogging partner!), but I’m really excited as well. Plus, I’m currently working on a secret little project of my own, to celebrate 3 months of “focused” blogging which I hope to unveil at the end of the week.

So the bloggy world is providing me with lots of interesting things that make up for crummy job stuff, at least this week! Anyone else have stuff they’re looking forward to, or conversely, dreading about the next 7 days?

I know just how you feel. I never enjoy Sundays because I spend the whole day with this feeling of dread. I hate going out and doing anything on Sunday evening because I feel like I should be doing work to prepare for the work week ahead. Combine that with a feeling of “I didn’t get half the stuff done that I’d planned on this weekend” and Sundays are definite suckage!!

Ugh. I hear ya!

I completely dread Monday which in turn ruins my Sunday.

I’ve started thinking that I need to do something special on Sunday so that I enjoy it a bit more. Sunday movie nights, perhaps?
