Beware, moody girl in the house! I always seem to wake up on the wrong side of the bed on Monday mornings. For most people it is obvious why Monday does not excite them. But I do not work a normal Monday-Friday job so it is definitely not because I have to head to the office for the start of a full week of work - in fact I woke up at 10 this morning and am still sitting on my couch in my pjs anxiously waiting the fresh pot of coffee I have brewing in the kitchen to be ready.
Because I work in real estate, my hours are usually the opposite of most people's - evening and weekends. Nonetheless, I enjoy passing the bars on the way to my showings and seeing the workers pilling in for happy hour. I love the feeling in the air in Old Montreal on weekends with all the locals and tourists wandering around. It always puts a smile on my face when I am doing an open house and a family comes in together - usually coming from some weekend activity: swimming lessons, soccer, or ballet - shopping for the perfect house for their family...how exciting. It does not take much to make me happy. Put me with a group of people having fun and it is contagious - the positive energy will be flowing inside of me. Well who does not love a good time? But for me, it does not have to be my good time - I will happily enjoy others.
So my Monday blues...maybe it is because of the sympathy I feel for the people around me - my husband leaving before the sun is up, the construction workers I can hear outside, the cable guy I catch a glimpse of fiddling with the box in the alley, the dead silence in my building as everyone has gone to work. Is there anyone having fun on a Monday morning...I need to track them down.
Have a great week,
