I would like to propose an additional day of the week. I would call it Sunmonday (stressing the first syllable).
Sunmonday would come between Sunday and Monday, and it would be a day to relax.
I have discovered that weekends, at least for me, are not relaxing. Fridays I’m fried from the week. Saturdays are filled with activities, which mostly entail ferrying the children from event to event. And then there are Sundays.
I love Sundays – going to church with my family, talking to friends after church, doing TG’s hair. But Sundays also come with paper grading and lesson planning and figuring out the week’s wardrobe and making sure everyone has clean laundry for at least the next couple of days and I could go on an on. By the time the weekend is over, I haven’t relaxed a bit.
I begin the work week exhausted, and the cycle continues.
Are there lifestyle changes I need to make? Absolutely. Until I make them, however, I’ll dream of Sunmonday and smile.
