Hump Day


Monday happens. Scramble to play catch-up. The weekend lost. Before you know, it’s over. Who said we don’t like Mondays?
Tuesday strolls along. It’s dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s to what you didn’t finish up yesterday.
Meanwhile, the “to do’s mount up. Like you didn’t already have enough written down.
Meetings get scheduled. Sleep heads into the negatives. Somehow you scrape the energy to ride before dawn.
Here comes Wednesday. The famous hump day. The rest of the week is all downhill. But wait! There’s not enough time in tomorrow to finish what you didn’t get done today.
Cancel the coffee with the friends. Forget about the dinner with mum. Priorities set straight. The wheels are in motion. Time is ticking. Carry on.
Inside you scream. “How can I fit it all in?”
The un-paid parking ticket nags you. The dishes mount. The vacuuming undone. Silently you walk the dog. Mulling over the moments. What did I forget to do today? Then you ask yourself, the three most important things you need to get done tomorrow?
Before long you’re back home. Dinner done. Dog fed. Jammies on. Status updates check. Bed now. Enjoy the rest.
It’s only hump day.

Haha.. I love this post despite the fact that I don't even know what day of the week it is anymore. Totally relate. How about some relax YOU time?
