Happy Hump Day everyone!
We are halfway through the week, and I don’t know about you, but I can’t Wait Til Friday.
Wait a minute.
What’s so special about Fridays? I mean, I know it’s the end of the workweek and all, but really, what makes Friday better than Wednesday? Is it truly a better day, or does it just have a better marketing team?
In my last post I tried to give Monday a spin. I learned that Mondays get a bad rap because they have no feet. I also learned that I am not a very good spin doctor – at least, not as good as these guys:
but I am going to try to work my way through all the days of the week.
I know what you’re thinking (I do! It’s because I’m psychic. Or is it psychotic? I get the two confused). You’re wondering why I would waste my time spinning the days of the week. I’m wondering the same thing.
TBH I don’t know why.
These are things that I DO know –
I know that I have let death, illness, stress, brain weasels and the black dog keep me from writing. I know that
days weeks months of avoiding the blank page have turned it into the monster under my bed (literally – I have a whole slew of empty notebooks gathering dust under my bed). I know that the only way to chip away at a writer’s block is to write. And yet….
The words don’t come.
So here I am, rambling about the days of the week, chasing the ADHD squirrels and hoping that they’ll lead me over/around/through the block.
But (pay attention – I have a big but**)
My squirrels lead me straight to an epiphany (ok, not straight – they are ADHD squirrels, so we spent far too much time getting distracted by shiny things) –
We all look forward to Friday – we spend our week looking forward to the weekend and our weekend dreading Monday. When we’re at work we wish we were home and when we’re home (and faced with honey-dos) we wish we were somewhere else.
We are wishing our lives away. It needs to stop.
Life is short. Be here now.

*I know what you’re thinking (did you not read my post? I’m psychic!). You thought this was going to be a post about WTF moments. I don’t want to disappoint you, so here’s a link
**mostly thanks to WFH and stress eating
So tell me – what’s your favorite day of the week, and why?
