Closing Monday

Monday is almost at a close

Good thing, I suppose

While not the worst, it wasn’t the best

This Monday was a low-life pest

From a cat’s paw digging into my face

To a livelihood’s quickened pace

“Just leave me alone,” was the anthem cry

One more email and I shall die

I’m sorry, I’m not the Cheers bar

Your ridiculous questions go too far

While it’s sunny and warm outside

At a desk I must begrudgingly reside

Reviewing, redacting, copying and then

Another time-consuming request comes in

Ugh. Just freakin’ ugh.

Can I hide under a woven rug?

I’d like to trade today in

for a Magic Monday and gin

Or a day of quiet and peace

where the work flow will cease

Well, Tuesday’s another day

To get a few projects out of the way

To have a better view of things

See what a new day brings

So, I’ll get rid of this stupid frown

Ship the negativity out of town

Throw Monday behind the closet door

And clean cat puke off the bedroom floor

    The door is splendid 🙂
    I thought there was cat puke on my floor this morning, too, but it was a leaf and I am happy for all of us 🙂
    The Monday was hectic for me, too. I’ll second the email. Annnnd, at 4, I had them all done, handled, answered — but at 5, I opened it and said, “Oh look. More.” But I made good progress today and it sounds like you did, too. Tuesdays are awful, but maybe not this one. Maybe this one will be some rare, sweet Tuesday 🙂 I hope!

      One of the kids puked on the bedroom floor in three places…after the cleaning lady was here. Arrgghh!!
      Tuesday will be better, but if not, there’s always Wednesday. 😏

    I do like that door. Cat puke? the number one reason I wear slippers. I like the idea of a Magic Monday. I didn’t have one, but I like the idea. This is the first five-day week of the year, and it’s all I have to look forward to until Memorial Day 😦

    I hope you have a happy Tuesday.

      I have off on MLK day, but it’s going to be cold so…

      Yeah, looking forward to Memorial Day and warmer weather and fewer crazy Mondays.

        There’s something nice about a holiday. I know I could take a vacation day, but I’m not going to do that just to have a cold Monday off. I’ll just march onto Memorial Day.

    Is that door in your place, Mary?
    It really is incredible!
    So sorry about your day, which you’ve detailed so perfectly in your poetry.
    Onward to Tuesday!

      No, that is not my door or my cat, Laurie. Just a great photo from the internet. The end of Monday can only lead to a better Tuesday!

    Monday must have been National Cat Puke Day. Theo, too, graced me with a pile of it on the bedroom floor. I can only be grateful that this time he chose the hardwood floor and not the carpet – or the bed. Double ugh when that happens!!

    I hope Tuesday is much kinder for you.

      Well, now I don’t feel so bad…except my kids don’t have hardwood floors to puke on. It’s either the bed or the carpet. Funny, it never happens in the cat tree.

      I’m going to make Tuesday better, it has to be. 😀
