Everyday is not a Sunday!

Today is friday! World over people would be moving around with a big smile which says TGIF (Thank God Its Friday). Not for me. The smile is not for me. That is because my company works 6 days a week. Agreed that we start later everyday as compared to my counterparts belonging to TGIF clan, but do not kid me when it comes to the "till" portion. The day can stretch much beyond the time it is supposed to end. Luckily for me, the work is not as demanding and except for some sporadic meetings, my day ends when it is still day! Yet, I would not mind starting my day early every day just to have that saturday off! You may ask me why not look out for a job that gives me that luxury, but there are reasons I do not wish to disclose here for NOT doing so.
Coming to the point, so, its Saturday that gives me the required smile that says "hey so what if everyday is not sunday....tom is surely a Sunday".
And then comes Sunday. The day to get up late. The day breakfast gets done later. The day which my refrigerator starts empty only to end up being stacked. The day myself and hubby take turns to chauffeur our kids to their dance classes and ABACUS classes. The day I love for those 1 1/2 hrs I spend learning the next item on veena. The day when evening would mean some socialising with people and remembering Gods in their temples. The day that ends with Monday Blues!
With such a hectic schedule I wonder why I still love my sundays!


Just like that April 20, 2007 at 2:00 PM  

Hmmm. O know what you're writing about. Worked in one, once. Where people would come in on Sat's by arund 11, just loll around, faff, smoke cigarettes, and leave by around 5. A total waste of productivity at least in my industry- which had 90% of the offices we had to interact with closed on Sat.

Ah the bliss of a Fri evening and the extended bliss of Sat, knowing there's still Sun to look forwrd to...

And yet, I also know what it means to have compulsions ... My commiserations!

Hip Gma!
Absolutely right. Maybe just for that different experience, I look fwd to it so eagerly.

actually speaking, its good that u have saturday working for the reasons below :)

1) that made this blog possible
2)you value ur sunday more, since that the only day off
3)you are more punctual
4)dont forget the monies that saturday is fecthing u

jokes apart, if u were to have sat/sun off .. u wud pretty much do the same things, at half the pace, so that u complete all the said tasks over 2 days. which means lesser efficiency, which isnt good for india :-)try suggesting to ur compnay to make it 9 hrs, 5 days a week. everyone will benefit if implemented. in one company we suggested this, and mgmt agreed !

keep writing

Thanks for those valuable and encouraging words! Yes, I value my sunday more now.

I guess because you fill every minute of it with the things you "want" to do and not the ones that you "have to" do?

Rightly said! Such a vast difference between "have to" and "want to"!!!
