Sunday night blues

As a working mom, I hate Sunday nights. Most of the evening is spent prepping for the week ahead and dreading the fact that there are now five days of work ahead of you again.

I think that one of my favorite things when I was on maternity leave both times (other than being home with my babies) was the fact that I didn't have to deal with that Sunday night dread of having to go to work the next day. It was just like any other evening.

I don't know why I can't just enjoy the evening but there seems to be this slight feeling of dread knowing that the alarm is going to go off at 5 AM the next morning and we have five full days of work before getting a few days off. Weekends always go too fast.

I think that the work week should be TWO days with FIVE days off for the SAME pay. Who's with me?

I don't work anymore, but I'd vote for your 2 days on, 5 days off!

I still get some of the sunday night blahs because it means my husband won't be able to help with the baby in the morning like he did on the weekend.

I am with you! I am a SAHM now but didn't used to be. Even staying home Sundays are a drag. You have to make sure homework is done, laundry done, folded and put away, lunches packed and on and on. I like your work week better.

Wouldn't that be great? *lol* My days off rotate, but I get every 3rd weekend off and I get like a double dollop of Sunday Night Blues. *yuck*

Nothing to add but I agree with the whole post; it's the same for me and I hate it!
