Monday Blues

Ugh.  I am in the midst of -- for lack of a better word -- a yucky Monday.  Nothing in particular -- just a bunch of small issues gone a muck and frustration with several people.  Mondays are super long for me -- I have class at 9 AM, 10 AM, 11 AM, and 1 PM and then a long night class from 7-9:50 PM.  I like to use my Monday afternoons to catch up on work but almost everything has taken double the amount of time so I am not nearly finished with my "To Do" list and in just a few moments I have to pull up enough energy to teach a long night class. (and yet another day of almost unrelenting hot flashes)
I think I am still just so disappointed to feel so far from being done with my dissertation that it is "coloring" my mood in general.  It is so hard to teach a full plus load (and to do it as well as I can) while also trying to finish the darn thing and have some sort of normal life as a person (and let's not even talk about all the responsibilities of being a wife and a partner).  I hate this sensation of feeling like I am so far behind in everything that I am doing (and maybe taking on an extra night class wasn't the best idea).

Enough whining.  I need to just pull myself up -- drink another pot of coffee -- and just do what needs to get done.  My weekend is already super busy so looking forward to relaxing is just not going to happen.  Maybe this cartoon below captures what is really going on -- I just can't stop thinking about all the crap that I need to think about!
