It is soo nice and it probably will not happen again for another year or so unless I plan it myself. But I findmyself in the usual "I don't wanna go back to work" mode of facing the Monday blues. I prettymuch stayed home all weekend and got a lot of the organizing and cleaning I wanted done. Still have quite a bit more to do and then I know I will be ready to face working on my novel. I cannot focus when things are not completed. Clutter tend to make me nervous and claustrophobic. But anyhow, I just do not want to go back to work. I am greatful to have a job to go to do not get me wrong. As I am sure my bill places are happy I have one also and expect me to work LOL So do you find yourself feeling like dreading going back to work when you have a long weekend off? When i take a week off I am ready for work again, but after three days I do not want to go back. How odd is that?

Hello, taface412. I don't think that this is odd. You stayed at home, relaxed a lot, and now you know that going back to your job will be tiring and repetitively. Everyday the same thing, everyday a routine. When you are at home for a long time, you develop a routine too. But in three days you could not create a boring routine. That's why you want to stay there. The problem is not much with your job. The problem is that you really enjoyed staying at home. It was pleasant, and nowhere else would be better. If you stay at home for some more days, then you will want to go back to your job again. You will see, routine really makes you feel bored. Respectfully, Munhozmib.

I know. My job is such a routine I feel like a machine sometimes...and then there are days I cannot get one thing completed.

it is true that initially i used to feel monday morning blues in my career. Later I have seen and realised that there are many important work lined up for monday. It is vital to go office that day and work. it is what I am doing.

usually after I get to work and get moving it is not a problem because like you said there is ALWAYS work to do and ready to be done. It's just there is sucha stigma attached to that day and also I think it had to do with the fact I had a long weekend. Thanks for responding.

Join the billions of other people counting down the hours. I like long weekends but since I've just started back to work part time I'm still on that coasting mentality. Don't worry though, Christmas is just a few weeks away and you'll get another one and then its back to work lady!

Yeah it was nice while I had it, but i don't know whether I workChristmas or not yet. Schedules come out later...I don't care there I just want New Year's day off in case I decide to go out for the new years....you knwo they say what you are doing at midnight is what you'll be doing all year round...last couple I stayed home and slept through it...might be why my life is a big yawn lately. So I hopefully intend to kick it up a notch....maybe dance the year away this coming year. And no matter if it is part time work or fulltime I think everyone dreads onday...it gets a bad wrap yanno.
