Manic Mondays

Ever notice that Mondays suck beyond the telling of it? I mean, they write songs about it. There's Manic Monday, and Rainy Days and Mondays and Come Monday - wait, that's about looking forward to Monday. Jimmy Bufett must have had one too many of those margaritas to be looking FORWARD to Mondays.

I spend most of my Sunday dreading Monday. Sad, huh? There's a line from Kate and Leopold where Meg Ryan's character says how Sundays are tainted, because Mondays come next. I just wish that I could enjoy the day and not let anything taint it. A job where I was respected might help. Someone to snuggle with on Sundays might make me forget.

This week, the Benedryl helped. A mosquito got into my car Saturday night. I saw him too late, when I was already on the highway. By the time I could pull off, the blood sucker had nipped me FOUR darn times! I killed him, it wasn't hard, being that he had gorged himself on the Carmen buffet and could barely fly with its full tummy. I want to know what it is about my blood that draws mosquitos from three counties to my door. Just sweet, I guess. ;)

See, it's not only Monday. It's an ITCHY Monday. Is it Friday yet? When will THEN be NOW?

UPDATE: Monday just got a bit better, because Melli reminded me that it's CASTING CALL time over at Wendy's. Melli beat me last month, so I'm really going to have to bring out the talent this time.

ROFL! I am sO glad you smacked that little sucker! Dieing fat and happy was too good for him though! And I am pullin' for you over at Miss Wings place! I think she should start casting The List!

Hi. Don't forget 'I don't like Mondays' by the Boomtown Rats! Glad you got that buzzy little critter. Wendy directed me here btw :0)

One Scrappy Gal said...

I understand! Mosquitos love to gorge on me too! I'm like candy to them. :)

Valerie said...

I gotta agree with you on the Monday thing, I hate them. Here today via Wendy's blog!

Chi said...

Ouch! Happy to hear you killed the critter.

Good luck with the Casting Call this week! *s*

Karen said...

Melli said...

Books, screen plays, sax AND guitar? WOW! If you don't win THIS casting call there's something seriously wrong! ;)

With a ton of things going for us each Sunday, Mondays are actually less busy for us. Sunday is good work though, so that helps tremendously, that, and my sweetie is the best at cuddling.

Jules said...

When will then be now? SOON!! Ahahahahaha - that's one of my favorite movie lines to quote!!! And honestly, the way this year is flying by (it's already August?!) I think Friday will be here before you know it. Chin up, friend.

Renee said...

Mondays are usually pretty good here. Although today I need to get my act together and catch up on my paperwork so that I'll be ready for a big meeting on the 19th. And the dog needs her shots. And we're out of milk.

Hi! I'm here from Wendy's even though I'd already been here lurking...

I do enjoy Sundays for that reason though. It's like not enjoying 4am, just because 6 am is coming and you have to get up. I'm more intensly focused on sleeping or enjoying that time.

When my BH and I were dating, I commuted on the weekends with my kids the 5hrs to his town and stayed with his mom. Sundays at 4:30 we would have to leave to go home. Sundays at 2 found us cuddling and caressing just to not miss touching each other while we had the chance to be together. Because of obligations with my career, I wasn't able to move down until a couple of weeks following the wedding. I looked at Monday as "The first day with stuff in it to keep me busy until at last I'm with my Baybay."

Oh, and your welcome for the "got your back" moment. Although I think you have matching hearts, it may not be the best time for him. Soon, I think( he is standing at the corner about to make that choice), but a few months off still.

Dorothy said...

Doh! Meant "You're Welcome" not the "channeling my son's 2nd grade teacher" your welcome I gave you. I promise I'm intelligent. Forgive me?

Luck o' the Irish said...

Better than BITCHY Monday! Or is it? HAHA

When will then be TIME TO GO TO VEGAS? Oh yeah, you have a countdown at the top. Can ya speed it up a bit?

Jillian said...

Oh Carmen, I can step outside for 30 seconds and come back inside with welts all over my legs. Hubby, on the other hand, mustn't be very sweet, because the little blood-loving skeeters never bother him!

As for Mondays, I'm a homeschooling mom and at-home writer, and I STILL hate them! It must be a hanger-on from my working-world days. Either that, or I just can't BEAR to see my sweetie leave for the office on Monday mornings...cough, cough...

Ocean Lady said...

We were just saying how we wished it could always be a Saturday yesterday. Good luck with the casting call. ;)

Happy0303 said...

I work on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so this is my Sunday. Boy, that mosquito really got you, huh?

Here via casting call! I'm sure I'll be back again!

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

Aww...I'm glad that your Monday got better!

Anthony said...

Or ... someone to snuggle with on Monday might make you like the day a little more!

Amy said...

Damn insects! i hate mondays too and since i was out of town last Thursday-Sunday and this Wednesday-Sunday, well my weeks go by even faster and I end up with Monday again...seriously Monday is an awful way to spend 1/7 of your week!

Zeus said...

BAH!!!! This is what I get for visiting your blog at 1:50 in the morning. I just found out about Miss Wendy's auditions, and I feel like I am now behind!

That's alright, though; as long as Miss Carmen thinks I'm a star, it's good enough for me! ;)
