Almost everyone I know who works dread Mondays. It is actually hard for those working to like Mondays especially if their weekends were “bitin”. Yes, one way or another, working or not working we all feel weekends aren’t enough. But then again being a stay home wife & mother, most of the time I don’t really know what day it is. Maybe because everyday is different, at least for me. I look forward to weekends mainly because it’s the time the husband gets to spend time with me & G. It’s the time wherein we can just chill. No errands for me, no work for him, just family gatherings, events with friends or just plain hanging out at home or in the mall (gah, I wish there were more really nice clean pretty parks here in Manila, more Ayala Triangle Park please!)
Monday Blues. Hmmm I never think I had them, not even back in college. Maybe because I love being busy & that I always look forward to it. Now that I’m a wife & mom, my Mondays consists of errands that had been on hold over the weekend. I work irregularly, my job is more like a “raket” I only get to work once to thrice in a week for castings ( I work as a talent for TV commercials) and if lucky, I get a job once in a month or if not that lucky once in six months. I like the set up. I like that I get to work somehow yet still manages to take good care of my daughter & husband & the house. But sometimes (more often than not) I always ask myself what if I did get a regular job, would there be Monday blues for me?
I’ve observe that when you have kids who already go to school, there might me Monday blues for moms. It’s the start of the week wherein they are as busy as the dads working. Early morning to prepare for breakfast, prepare & attend to the needs of the child, what to bring to school, and the list goes on.
As for me, I spend my Mondays spreading good vibes to those who dread it. I make sure I get to make someone smile or help them feel that Mondays can be fun. I may not have Monday blues yet but when I do, I’m hoping someone would spread good vibes to me as well.
It’s a beautiful day!
Happy Monday everyone! 😉
