No More Manic Mondays for Me

I used to hate Mondays. After a weekend away from the pressures of work, Mondays always seemed so manic. Tons of emails, phone calls, and tasks that somehow managed to pile up over the weekend needed my attention.

But since I retired at the end of last year, I no longer suffer from manic Mondays. In fact, sometimes I have a difficult time differentiating Mondays from all other days of the week. Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday. Pretty much all the same when you’re retired.

No more manic Mondays for me. Hurrah!


This post was written for a new challenge from Sandi over at Flip Flops Every Day. The task: write a post from the title of a song. Today she chose Manic Monday,Β a catchy tune from the Eighties by the Bangles.

Were I choosing a song title about Mondays, however, my choice would have been one from The Mamas and The Papas. But that’s just me.

    I love the Mamas and the Papas too! Monday, Monday… see I had to pick the song that inspired the title of the Monday challenge. Manic Monday deserved Manic Monday. πŸ™‚ And yes, I’m not retired, but in the summer, home with kids, we can certainly understand mixing up our days!
