Monday again

I know most people dread Mondays. I can’t say that I do. That’s not to say that I don’t love the weekends. I do. But Mondays are always so quiet and for  me it’s like a breather after a busy and often noisy weekend :)

I always appreciate the silence more on Mondays because it comes on the heels of the weekend. By Wednesday or so, I’m usually looking forward to the weekend again and making family plans.  But ah that Monday morning when the house is completely silent and I have it all to myself and I can sit in my office without any interruptions. It’s a beautiful thing!

Today I’m working on the first Scottish Historical, Ewan and Mairin’s story.  I’ll fully admit, I’m was skeered spitless to write these. It’s been a long while since I last wrote a historical and I was afraid that maybe I’d forgotten how ;)  It’s been way more fun than I anticipated.  I’m loving the characters and my thoughts often drift to the second and third stories in the trilogy (I am easily distracted!) But I take that as a good sign that I’m no longer equating the writing of these stories with the outbreak of the plague *g*

How are Mondays for you?  I can remember living for the weekend and just mindlessly passing the weekdays until Friday. I’ve learned to enjoy those weekdays because damn, I’m not getting any younger, and the last thing I need is to wish away more of my days!

    I used to know what you mean about the calm of Mondays. My oldest decided to schedule his college classes in the afternoon and evening hours this semester. So now I only have a little over an hour from the time he leaves until the other two get home from school.

    Mondays? *UGH* Considering that’s the busiest day of the week for my office, I’m not a fan of Mondays. (459 customers served last Monday. And there’s only 6 of us.) Also difficult to make myself get up at 4:30 am after sleeping later on weekends… However, it helps that being so busy on Mondays means that the day just zooms by, and next thing I know, it’s 5:30pm and time to go home! Where I then have to face Tuesdays… *sigh*

    I dread Mondays as my email at work is almost always full of emails that I would rather not see and it’s really hard to get up and get motivated, especially when it’s cold. Counting down the weeks to my next 3 day weekend.

    Monday are not my favorite because I typically have to shut off the creative writer in me and focus on what pays the bills–when I want it to be the opposite.
    I SO can’t wait to read your historicals

    Gosh, I wish I have quiet Mondays like yours, but it’s not happening anytime soon. Too much going on at work on Mondays that usually make me ask “Why is the weekend always go so fast & weekdays drag like molases?” or “Is it Friday, yet?”.

    Mondays mean I have to come to work and see what was screwed up over the weekend. Thank goodness I have really good part time help now and very little is screwed up. However, mail is always heavy which means less time for goofing off and reading. I only got 48 pages read yesterday while later in the week I’ll get a whole book read while waiting for someone to come in. Okay, people you really need to mail more stuff.

    Wait….it’s almost Valentine’s Day, my busiest time of the year. Hold that mailing thought until March.

  7. I’m still at the stage that I dread Monday’s, but I am very excited to hear about the new Scottish series. Squeee!!!!!! Just too bad that you are writing them, which means that it’s gonna be a long while until we can get our hands on them :eatchoc:

    :shoot:I used to hate Monday’s because I would wait for Friday’s and go party hardy and then pay the rest of the weekend. Monday’s were very hard to get back into the routine. But since I have been unemployed for a year one day is just like the next. New here but will be back. D
