Having fun on a Monday

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

When Mondays come around some people might groan. On this day, the relaxing and fun times of the weekend ends and the workweek begins.

For me, Mondays mean something different. Being in the newspaper business means my schedule is never the normal the 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday workweek.

To get the Sunday paper out, the staff works Saturdays. Sometimes it feels a little depressing knowing while everyone is out hiking on mountain trails or browsing through stores in a shopping plaza, I am punching keys on a keyboard.

There is some satisfaction, because when Monday rolls around, the tables turn.

I don’t have to set the alarm clock because Monday is my day off. I can see a movie and not worry about peering over strangers’ heads in a crowded theater and get all those meddlesome chores out of the way like making a savings withdrawal that would be impossible to do on a Saturday.

Best of all, during the summer I can spend Mondays with my mother.  

As a teacher, my mother gets the summer months off and we start planning our Monday schedules before the school year is even done.

We often don’t get everything crossed off our to-do list but it is fun to fill the list up with sight-seeing trips.
