Sorry for the emotional neediness of this post, just wondering if any other bees struggle with what my friends and I used to call “Sunday Night Sad”? It’s like a Sunday-evening funk that comes with facing the start of another long week and feeling like you haven’t accomplished all you need to do.
If you experience this, how do you kick it? It’s pretty yucky, almost worse than Monday morning in its own way.
Ugh. I’m there right now.

I used to get it pretty bad when I was a kid, thinking of going to school in the morning. I wasn’t a bad student, or felt like school was a waste. But I did feel “uneasy” most Sunday eveings. If my family had plans for Sunday, I jsut felt uncomfortable. (Hard to explain.) I still felt that way, some, when I worked. (I stay home now with my kids, so my days all just run together.)
I don’t know if I have great advice. But I tried to play it cool on my Sunday evenings. Watch a movie or look forward to TV, some ice cream, maybe a bath 🙂

I get Sunday night anxiety. Not fun! I have no advice to give, except to enjoy your Sunday as much as you can! Usually my fiance and I try to get out and take a long walk or hike, or we do brunch. . . something special that makes us happy. My anxiety usually kicks in near the end of the night, when we’re sitting around watching TV. Honestly, there’s not much I do. I usually tell my fiance how I am feeling and he tries to make me feel more relaxed.

yeah I’m getting it right now 🙁

Oh yes! Absolutely. I use to be a teacher, and the most stressful time was Sunday night – making sure that everything was ready to go, thinking about what could go wrong that week, etc – and my mind could keep going when I would try to go to bed! Horrible…

Yeah we call them the Sunday Blues. I distract myself by getting ready for the week–packing lunches, packing my gym bag, watching what I want on tv, taking a bath…it really helps.

Yep, my mom calls them the Sunday night blues. We used to dread Sunday nights as kids. She would always make a special dessert on Sundays. Even if it was just brownies, it was something to look forward to. I’m a teacher so I still get the blues on Sundays. I always take a bath, read a magazine, Fiance and I either go out to a nice lunch or make a big dinner. No chores or housework on Sunday evenings, just relaxing.

I’m right there with you! I get “Sunday night sad” really badly now, since I’m still in school and work full time. I only have 3 more weeks of classes though, and then I’m hoping my Sunday nights will be happier.
I usually just try to get everything ready for the upcoming week, which makes me feel less stressed. (Unless I’m procrastinating, like right now…)

The worst kind of Sunday night sad is when you’re sitting in the office after having worked all weekend, and realizing that you’ll be back the next morning. I worked most of the day yesterday, but it wasn’t bad at all, because I had Saturday night with Fiance to look forward to. But today, I just can’t take it. I hate hate hate working weekends 🙁

I am suffering from a little of that right now. Partially because I didnt get anything I wanted to do done today and kinda cheated on my diet today ( oops ) and I have a icky sluggish feeling and not really looking forward to the Monday morning battle with my little girl about school while I am having to convince myself that I have to go to work and she has to go to school. Plus I kinda get this a little every night now that the Fiance is gone and I have to sleep alone, its a little harder to get to sleep.

ugh it’s the worst. and then it’s thinking about how many hours you have until your alarm goes off. i’m a teacher too (this is begining to look like a common link!). i lay out my clothes that i’m going to wear to work the night before, and doing that on sunday nights is what i dread the most 🙁
at least we are all in this together!

Feeling sunday night sad right now! My stomach is always in butterflies on sunday nights – but I can’t pinpoint why.
I deal with it by not letting myself think about the week ahead. I enjoy every last second of my sunday night with Fiance, and don’t let my mind wander to what’s facing me at work tomorrow morning. Oh – and I let myself eat junk on Sunday night (the only time I’ll do this!) so that gives me something to be distracted by, lol.
Sorry, not much help – but maybe knowing how common it is will make you feel a bit better….?

- Wedding: June 2010 - Ceremony - First United Methodist Church; Reception - My parents' house!
I have it majorly right now.
I have a drawing due at 8:30am that I haven’t even started, am deliriously tired, don’t get to see Mr. Scissors again until Friday, am generally whiny, sort of nervous/shakey, and dazed.
Blurg. I hate Sunday nights.

Haha, I love Sunday nights because I work straight through the weekend. So for me, they mean freedom! Well, freedom to go to class and study. 😛
I used to get them really badly when I was in high school, though. Ugh.

OMG this post is so great! I always get this feeling every Sunday around 3 pm in the afternoon. It’s such a WEIRD and ICKY feeling! I was just thinking about it today actually, and why it happens to me and wondering if anyone in the world felt the same way. I’m so glad to know there are a lot of us! (My Sunday night Sad just got slightly happier lol)
