"Mondays are the potholes in the road of life." ~attributed to Tom Wilson by quotation site Think Exist.com
Monday's are difficult (all those voice mail messages and emergencies waiting from the weekend; all those emails to be answered containing "action items"). I spend most Monday's picking up all the pieces left from the weekend. Monday's after a time change are more difficult (sleep deprived, odd out of sync feelings). Monday's after a time change and a dental appointment on the previous Friday with an achy mouth all weekend and some problems now, are terrible.
I went in; did some things that couldn't wait, told my sup that I couldn't hang any longer, gave him a few things that needed his and director approvals, and left for home in a daze (only a couple of hours shy of the actual end time for my day).
I went straight for the nap. Four hours of sleep later, I feel better. My attitude is adjusted. I might be able to face tomorrow, though I still need to go back to the dentist.
