Happy Grumpy Tuesday

My sister in law and I have a fairly new tradition that revolves around Tuesdays. We always wish each other a "Happy Grumpy Tuesday." We've come to realize that hey, Mondays are not that bad! Sure, you're coming off your weekend high and are brought rather suddenly and disappointingly back to reality. But if you are willing to see it, Mondays are also fresh and new. They are full of possibilities for a new, exciting week. Anything can happen. Work is almost a novelty on Mondays. 
But by Tuesday, watch out! The novelty of Monday has definitely worn off. The promise of a new week has been broken by the reality that, oh yeah, work (or school etc) sucks. And the weekend? Well, the sweet memories of last weekend have faded away, and next weekend is so far off it might as well not even exist. 
I can honestly say that yesterday I was hopeful and happy and dreamy. My weekend had done its work. I was rested and motivated and excited. Today? Not so much. I actually broke down and cried this morning when it was time to leave for work. Not because of work itself, but because its Tuesday, and just when I thought I couldn't handle one more thing, that one more thing happened. Maybe I'm not very good at handling surprises, because sudden changes really throw me off. I can always adapt and accept new circumstances and altered plans, but I'm still learning how to do it with a cheerful heart and a good attitude. And my adjustment period for sudden changes is much rougher on Tuesdays. At least, that's what I'm telling myself today, so that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel that is Tomorrow. I'm blaming it all on Tuesday. 
What do you think? Do you have a certain day of the week that's harder on you than others? Or am I insane? Vote now!


  1. Oh my goodness!!! I HATE Tuesdays!!! They are the worst day ever ever ever ever!!!! Today my quote of the day is "Gee Tuesday, you are not making me like you any better today."
    But good news. Its almost Wednesday now.

  2. I think the fact that I can say "Happy Grumpy Tuesday!" to you every Tuesday, is the only highlight of my Tuesday! Grumpy = Tuesday.
    Thanks for my appearance on your blog! I feel so honored!

  3. Haha I'm glad that I'm not alone in my Tuesday grumpyness. Misery loves company! And I'm really really glad its Wednesday!
