It's Days Like This...

Well, Monday, you done did it again! Kicked my butt! Why oh why must you always do this to me? It was just one of those days. You know the saying, "Some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue." Today, I was the statue. And the pigeons made quite the mess! Today I felt like I was depriving a village somewhere of an idiot! On Mondays I set low personal standards and then consistently fail to achieve them! I was about five beers short of a six-pack today! The gates were down, the lights were flashing, but the train wasn't coming! If Mondays were any more stupid, we would have to water them twice a week! But I got the best of Monday in the end! Handle every stressful situation like a dog...pee on it and walk away! Boo-yah! Take that Monday!

I approach every day with a sense of humor...even Mondays! It was a rough day, but I still had a smile on my face when I walked out the office door this afternoon!

@Happy2BeMe Maybe if we all had our ultimate dream jobs that we love, we would look forward to Mondays and be excited about going to work! But unfortunately, most people hate their jobs, or at least don't feel fulfilled in their job.

@vandana7 I think he only rested on that very first Sunday. Ever since, us dim-witted humans have been keeping him really busy.

I love your analogies, especially the one regarding the dog . I'm sorry you had a bad Monday. But isn't that why they wrote that song about Monday's. I hope tomorrow will be a better day for you.

I had a good Monday, I have worked in my garden, trimmed the hedge for the winter and removed all the weeds grown among the veggies. I was very happy of myself.

@moffittjc A little more than 5 years is not too long, the years pass so quickly. As my husband is self employed we will never fully retire.

That's a nice way to spend a Monday! Glad you got to enjoy your day! I only have 1,962 more days until I retire, and then I can relax and enjoy my Mondays as well!

@LadyDuck I know it will go fast, so hopefully I can hang in there a little while longer. Even after I "retire" from my current job, I know that I'll never stop working, as I would get too bored sitting around all day without something productive to do.

I like the way dogs handle shittty situations.Dont set standards low, will only bring you lower,set them very high then when you get half way, you know you have achieved what you wanted to.
