OMG ... Monday mornings are seriously a waste of time.
I sit here at work - next to an extensive To Do list - and read blogs, message boards, etc that I've missed over the weekend instead of chipping away at my obligations. I do answer the occasional email that I don't have to do a ton of work to answer and then flag the others that require me more than a "thanks." or "got it." response.
In a perfect world, Mondays wouldn't technically start until after lunchtime. That is basically when I catch my FIRST wind of the day. I hate feeling so unmotivated here, but I just can't seem to shake it. I count the minutes until 12, so I can go to the cafe, kill a little time there, bring my lunch back, kill a little more time here and then that eats up another hour. Usually by 1 pm, I no longer can push off emails and have to do some work. I don't know why I wait to start because when I'm actually working, I find that the time flies by. I get so immersed in a design that hours can just slip away. And those are good days ... why can't Monday mornings be that way. If I were just to start working, jump into a design or a media plan, I know that the time would just melt away. BUT that is the logical side of my brain talking, and let's be honest here, I haven't consulted my logical brain in months! Everything is based on emotion, hormones and exhaustion. And Monday mornings are fueled strictly by exhaustion. I want to sleep. I want to stay in bed with my puppy dog and my hand on my belly, watching shitty TV. I don't seem to get to do that during the weekend - that's always filled with more To Do lists ... do laundry, run errands, unpack baby stuff, do a little more in the nursery, do some freelance work, etc, etc.
OK. Well my rant has taken me to 2 mins of 12. I will now commence with the next hour of blowing off work to bring me to the better part of the day. Monday afternoons. :)
Hope you all are having a better Monday AM than me!
