Sleepy Monday

If you work a five day work week from Monday through Friday, which day are you the most sleepy at work?

The young lady who cleans our offices came in this morning while I was in the midst of a long yarn. She told me to quit that or she'd start. I got to thinking about which day is hardest for me to stay awake, and I decided it was definitely Monday.

So assuming I'm correct, and I'm more sleepy on Monday than any other day of the work week, there must be a reason. And I've figured it out.

I always manage to take a nap on Sunday afternoon. Doesn't matter if I've got laundry to do or floors to vacumn. Doesn't matter if I need to be sewing or anything else, I'm gonna take that nap. I think it's a tradition in my family. My mother always took a nap on Sunday. Truth be told, she may have taken a nap most days when we kids were at school, but I know for a fact, she always took one on Sunday afternoon. She deserved hers. I can't say that about myself. I don't and have never worked as hard as she did.

Back to the reason for my inability to stay awake on Monday. Once I have snoozed for an hour or two on Sunday afternoon, I have a difficult time sleeping through the night. I don't have any trouble going to sleep, it's the staying asleep that is hard. Then by the time I have to come to work, I haven't had restful sleep, and if you come by my office, you might just catch me nodding.

So which day is it for you?

Hope you are having a marvelous Monday. Pray for our country. Love one another.

I don't even know what day of the week it is. I love this retirement thing, but just wished it paid better. I don't mind not knowing what day of the week it is...and life just goes on...and on..and on. Life is good.
