I can’t wait for Monday to arrive. I’m in desperate need of a fresh start, a new beginning. The last couple of weeks have been such a chaotic blur for me in terms of work/life balance; I feel like I’ve been stumbling through these last few weeks unconscious and if I’m completely honest, not entirely present.
When last Friday arrived, I remember scratching my tired head thinking: Where did the week go? Well, wherever it went, it took my mind with it. After a long day at work, I left exhausted and mentally depleted and somehow I managed to navigate my zombie-self to the grocery store. I was fatigued, famished and now that I think about it, suffering from low blood sugar because I asked this well-dressed Metro mannequin where the organic eggs were!
I immediately bursted into a hysterical fit of laughter, and in the middle of the dairy aisle, I quickly re-assessed my cognitive functions and silently shamed the marketer who was responsible for placing a mannequin in the middle of a grocery store. I promptly ditched the few grocery items I held in my hands and headed straight for the front door, completely disregarding the lone and baffled man beside me perusing the abundance of cottage cheese options at 11 p.m. on a weeknight.
I’m going to spend this beautiful Sunday relaxing, recalibrating and dining on organic eggs that I purchased at the market this morning. How was your week? Did you momentarily misplace your mind? If so, it’s OK. Monday is just around the corner.
