Weekend's Over Blues

I stretched Sunday into the late hours. It was a gorgeous day, so I didn't want to be in the house purging, but did get some outdoor stuff done. I don't know about others, but when you work full time, I feel like I need to have some sort of block between work of any kind, even if that is my own house or yard work, and starting a new work week.This meant I made a not so bright Sunday night decision to stay up late and watch a movie. I love Viggo Mortenson of Lord of the Rings among other movie fame. Last night it was The Two Faces of January. Despite the beautiful Greek scenery, the movie was dark and annoying in many parts, a chase and hide, bad guy-good guy-bad guy kind of movie.

 I had weird dreams as a result. No Viggo Mortenson on Sunday nights. I checked e-mails this morning and I had seven voice mails from Friday afternoon. Our systems are linked so I can see that-ouch. This means things will not be smooth in the office this morning, and I have the 'end of the weekend, not enough sleep, too much drama' Monday morning blues.

  1. I hope this morning wasn't as stressful as it promised to be.
    I'm a big Patricia Highsmith fan but other than The Talented Mr Ripley, don't usually enjoy the film adaptations as much. xxx

    1. I didn't know it was a book first-I think that might have been better.It had promise, but as I said, it just kind of annoyed me. I'm not sure if the story itself, or how it was played out. I'm through the noon hour and the calls have been returned and no drama in the office, so the day is going just fine. I could use a nap though!

  2. I hope that things are going smoothly this morn.
    I don't work, unless you count writing. Most people don't. I honestly, don't see how women get so much done. Don't be so hard on yourself about all of your chores, your schedule is way over booked.

    1. Things went ok at the office-so lots of messages but no crisis.I say your days are just busy, even if it is thinking about what you will write. I sit and think a great deal in my job-then I have to write, and write, and write, so don't let anyone tell you it is not work. Blog writing is more fun.

  3. I hope you're feeling ok Sam you always seem to be doing so much and yet you still manage to blog. I keep banging on about how impressed I am re blogging commitment etc. My life still seems incredibly busy since I stopped working I still don't seem able to blog consistently it reminds me of writing dissertations and leaving everything until the last minute. I remember writing a 10,000 word paper in one day I kid you not talk about running for the bus. Blogging is a lot more fun but I'm still not as competent at it as you and the other fab bloggers I read.

    1. I probably should give a few more days rest between, but I like the process and it keeps me focused on what I eventually want to do-more writing, if only for my own reading. I was the same way in college, and as a grant writer, binge all nighters! You are so kind to include me in the fab bloggers, I feel honored to be appreciated as such.
