The Monday Blues

I have a bad case of the Monday Blues. Or at least it is the blues and they just so happen to be on a Monday.

I just feel listless and sad. I don't feel like doing anything, and everything seems too hard to accomplish. I just want to go home and crawl under the covers.

I really don't know why I am feeling this way today. Maybe it has something to do with yesterday. Yesterday was supposedly a lovely day here. I never really got outside. I was in front of the computer most of the day working on the final JL newsletter for this year. It took about 4 hours, then it would not print to a PDF file. When that happened, I decided that I needed a break. I went to the post office, library, and the grocery store. When I got home, I figured out the problem, and got it to print properly.

Both Bill and I sacrificed our days yesterday. We were doing things that needed to be done for other people, not things we wanted to do. We did get to have fun Saturday (we went on a brewery tour of the Carolina Brewery and tried some free beer), but Sunday was a work day. Maybe working all day yesterday, then coming to work today has just worn me out. This too shall pass, and hopefully, I will not be blue tomorrow.

You worked hard on that newsletter. Are you involved in any other committee in the JL where you work with others and it's more enjoyable? I didn't stick with the JL too long. I wanted to volunteer in other areas that were of particular interest, and I ran out of the required amount of items to donate to their thrift shop.

I hope you are able to plan a fun weekend coming up. I know you both stay very busy. We had an experience of a lifetime by being at the Augusta National Golf Club last week. We only had tickets for a practice round, but it was fabulous being there in person. The course and flowers are magnificent. We were able to watch many of the participants.

I will be done with the newsletter as soon as one person sends in her stuff. It will be my last one forever!! I am looking forward to doing a more active committee next year. Yet, I, too, worry about what I have left to give to our "bargain sale".

That is so cool that you were in Augusta. We were there for a wedding a few years ago, but did not go to the golf course. It looks so gorgeous on TV - I bet it was wonderful to be there in person!
