It's Monday -- Don't Bring Me Down

I am soooo cheating today. I've been spending my time getting posts ready for the Sizzle & Sass Facebook page (I'm hosting this week, in case you're wondering), that I just haven't gotten around to figuring out what to write for today's post! Since a lot of you bemoan Mondays, I thought this music video would be perfect. Besides, I'm still a huge ELO fan.

My laptop doesn't always play these things (although my phone does--go figure!). I hope you're able to enjoy it and maybe bring a smile to your face (or a tap to your toes) this Monday. And hopefully I'll have finished the book I'm reading before Wednesday so I'll at least have a book to report. It's not looking good, though (and here I was, almost caught up to my goal--darn!).

So...what makes Monday especially bad for you? For me, it's having to go back to the gym. I just can't seem to get any motivation. But I will go back today. Even if I have to drag myself there.

Have a great Monday!

When you're retired, Monday is like any other day. Some people think retirement is one long happy vacation but in truth, you're on whatever project you were working on over the weekend.

I think I work harder now than when I was working for the man. :)

I think Jeff Lynne was born with those sunglasses. Has anyone ever seen him without them?

Maria - Can't consider myself retired, but I don't have a normal work week any longer! In fact, Fridays are usually the days I moan about--it's laundry day! Haha!

Jeff - You know, I love ELO (have for years), but couldn't name a member to save my life. Pitiful, huh?

Stacy McKitrick said...

Oh, and in case anyone cares... I DID make it to the gym this morning. Yay!!! :)

"couldn't name a member to save my life."

It's easy--Jeff Lynne is the one with the sunglasses on: All. The. Time.

I always liked that song, by the way.

Jeff - Okay, next time someone asks me who's in ELO, I can say, "Well, there's this one player who wears sunglasses all the time!" Haha! :)

Mondays are no big deal for me unless they're the second Monday of the month. (My board meeting) Then BLEH!!!!!!!!!!!

My new tablet won't let me play it but when I read the title, the song popped right into my head.

Love ELO.

Have a groovy week!

Jennifer - I'm so glad I never had to attend a board meeting. Sounds simply boring!

Ivy - Yay! Another ELO fan. :)
