Oh yeah, sad, but I’ve been dreading this already since Friday since I had Wed – today off.  No tips really… just enjoy the day the best you can… we cant stop the clock and life goes on!

Ha, yep, I’ve been dreading going back since Thursday morning. I could already feel my time off ticking away. It doesn’t help that my job is boring right now and I absolutely can’t stand my one coworker who I unfortunately share an office with.

I hate it tons too.  I know my long week is about to begin.  I work overnights to my schedule looks like this: Monday, Tuesday, off two nights, then I work three weekend nights – Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Saturday is considered Sunday so it’s the start of new pay week.  It just seems like a long, long week doing that much.  I can’t believe how fast the weeks go by.  I feel like I just did this week.  Ha.

Sorry, I’m digressing and being blah about it.

ETA: It doesn’t help that I don’t feel good whatsoever.  I lost my voice and have a hard time breathing.  I can’t afford to call out so I’m not sure what I’m going to do.

@Kant: Are we the same person?

I don’t have any suggestions but I feel your pain!  I usually try to just relax on Sundays in order to make it so I’m less run down on Monday from the weekend.

I know that feeling.. ecxept that I hated my old job. I try to schedule something to look forward to after work.. even if it was just the new episode of a show I like. I’d walk around all day thinking “when I get home, I can watch Gossip Girl!” ๐Ÿ˜€

I try SO hard to wake up every day and act like it’s the best day ever. Sounds really cheesy and Hallmark card but seriously, anything helps to get your mind off the fact that you’re going back to be a time card punching slave again for the next 8-10 hours. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hate it too. We had company all week. Our house is a mess.  We get to do it all over again in 3.5 weeks.

It sucks for me, too. I have to work all day in order to get ready for Mondays, so at least you don’t have work to bring home!

I’m in my first quarter of grad school…. so while I am dreading going back to class tomorrow, at least it would be that I was done with my homework!  Ahhhhhh!  However, let me tell you, I’d rather be in school than at my old crappy job!  I’m just looking forward to winter break!

I’m in my almost-last (one more after this!) semester of college plus interning for 3 different places. Hateeee that I have to go back to the “real world” after this little break ๐Ÿ™ boo.

Ugh, I hate it too! I started dreading it Wednesday night! Friday nights are usually the only weekend time I enjoy. Because I still have the whole weekend ahead of me!
