What's worse than a Monday?

What's worse than a Monday?
A Monday after you've had a week off... that's what!!!

I could try hiding from it.
But Monday always seem to find you.
I know Banjo is going to be missing me.
No lengthy mornings snoozing laying beside me
on his pillow as I work at my computer.
The birds will be missing me.
No lengthy morning mug of tea
while sitting and watching them.
And something else is still missing...
That would be the last of my windows that will finally complete our outside renovations of new siding, front door, side light window, above the door window and bathroom window. This will be the 3rd time they got the window wrong for above the door!!!! Honestly!!! But I will tell you about my renovation woes when the last window is in on Friday... maybe... if I'm lucky...
and we don't have a 4th screw up! :(

So it's back to work I go this morning.
Good thing I like my job...
most days... :)

Have a Happy Monday!
xo Catherine

Mondays after a vacation are so hard! Hopefully the day will go quickly for you.

Oh dear me. My sympathies. Unfortunately, as I am now retired from the classroom, Mondays no longer strick terror in my heart. :)

Brian said...

Yep, I totally agree, that does make it difficult!

HI Catherine, It's like coming back home after a long vacation. You get home and 'need' a vacation to get over the vacation!!!! ha ha

I'm sorry you have to go back to work--but just think of all of that money you are going to make!!!!

After you get through today, the rest of the week will go well... Can't wait to hear more about the window renovation...

Hugs,
Betsy

Liking your job makes it easier, I like mine, most of the time too. My problem isn't that I don't want to go to work, it is that Home is such a great place to be, I don't want to leave it (unless it is to go play).
Hope your Monday is a good one.

I always hated the day after vacation, you just get used to being on your own for a few days, then back to the grind. Oh well, the first pay check back, always blasted me back to reality! I do feel bad for Banjo and the birds, and hope they get the window right!!

My cat also loves sleeping next to the computer while I´m working or... blogging!! I think he´s some kind of a muse!! :)

Good luck on the final touches of your house renovation!! As they say here, "builders, you are so happy when they arrive, and happier when they leave!" ;)

Have a wonderful week!!!

I agree with you about Mondays, especially ones that follow holiday time! I'm off work for a stretch now and am having so much fun blogging and moving at my own pace, that returning to my job will be very difficult.

Your site is beautiful..I'm so glad I stopped by to see your lovely photos. Writing and photography are my loves, too. I just recently discovered blogs and am thoroughly hooked.

I thought I would sign up to follow and come back soon to visit. It's very nice to meet you...

Well I have to agree.. Going back is tough.. I am lucky I get the summer off. But in the Middle of Aug.. (which sneaks up to fast for me). I will have to go back and get ready for all those little tikes to come back to school!

Well I hope you have a great day anyway! Hugs, Linda

BTW- Have I told you how great your pictures are!

Kerri said...

Happy Monday! I hope the first day back wasn't too bad!

Luiza said...

I know all about mondays, after having vacation, doing what ever, all day long...
I really feel your anxiety =(.

Banjo will be missing you, the birds and your wonderful garden will miss you too!!!
It´s a good thing , you like your job!

You know what I did last night, after commenting your post?
I went out to give the birds and wilde animals some water , haha.

Right now, I´m eating ice cream , but I better hurry, cause it´s melting fast in this incredible heat...

Have a wonderful monday evening!

Oh yes, Mondays after a vacation are so hard! Especially when you have to leave such a sad but incredibly adorable face like Banjo's! Hope the 3rd time is the charm for your window. Can't wait to hear all about it!

Jacqueline said...

It sucks going back to work from a vacation!...Hope it wasn't too bad!...In my experience, home renovations always take longer to complete than they are supposed to=good luck with that...Kisses to beautiful Banjo...Happy week Catherine.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Sorry you have to go back...I'm sure Banjo will be fine. Just give him a little extra tuna and he'll forgive you. :)

Lin said...

Isn't it brutal to get up after having a week off?? Darn alarm! Ugh. I hope the day went well for you and Banjo made it without you.

Connie said...

It is hard to get back into the swing of things after a week off...but I betcha there were some very happy faces at work this morning...no doubt you were missed! xx

HubbleSpacePaws said...

Indeed, having just had one of these, my sympathy, Catherine!

Stacey Dawn said...

Hope you had a fabulous return to work Monday.....

Creative Carmelina said...
