I've never really liked it either, although knowing the DisUnplugged podcast is right around the corner does help.

Well, actually this Monday ain't so bad, it's my son's birthday. He was also born on a Monday 5 years ago. But other than today, I totally agree Mondays suck big time!

If that isn't a line that describes how I am feeling right about now. Wednesday isn't getting here soon enough.

I knew from the thread title which direction you were taking this one in WO. When I was still working in the lab, the radio station we had on always played this Mondays at 9AM. Yea, kinda ingrained in my head also.

That's awsome! I can't wait to get it! I am going buy some curriculum for DS and then lay the rest down in saving's. We just paid off the last of DH student loan so I feel your pain. We have been CC debt free for a year, and put every extra penny into getting the student loans paid off. Now with that loan gone it feels like DH is really making a engineer salary.:rotfl: DH has turned his goal to paying off our van...... :confused3

We need a bigger house (currently we have 6 people in 1100 sq ft) I know what I want and am willing to wait it out till I get a 20% down payment in savings, above 6 months salary. Whatever equity we get out of our house will be the cherry on top.

Thanks... It sucks on so many levels, but mostly because I'm 20 weeks pregnant and unemployable right now. I know an employer can't use the pregnancy as a reason not to hire me, but let's be real, they can make up any excuse. Luckily DH has a good job and we are very blessed with our health. Plus just found out last week the baby is a boy!!

At least we are going to WDW in a few weeks :yay: :yay: That is why I keep asking about the $100 gift certificate from Pete and his request for travel nightmare stories.

Remember that I Love Lucy episode where Lucy and Ethel hitch a ride with Elsa Lanchester and they hear on the radio that an ax murderess has escaped so they think it's her.......?

Just wondering.

Oh no that sucks. My boss just sort of got "moved" this week. Healthcare is so crazy. I hope you find a new job quickly.


I on the other hand love MOndays:lovestruc Since I am backwards from everyone else and work 3 12hour shifts Fri/Sat/Sun. Monday is my Friday.

Oh my, this is the last thing you need being pregnant. Hopefully this will give you the chance to slow down and prepare for a new baby! I only have one boy, but let me tell ya, boy's love their momma's! So happy for you! :flower3:

I have been a SAHM since I had my first child. DH did pretty well at his FT job so it was tight but we made it just fine. I got pregnant with DD when DS was only 5 months old. The owner of the engineering firm DH did Auto cad for dropped dead and they went out of business when I was only a few months along. I have high risk pregnancies and I HAD to have insurance so we emptied out our saving trying to pay for Cobra insurance at $900+ a month. DH found a new job but it did not pay near as much and they would not cover my pregnancy. Around my 6 month a friend asked me if I had checked out Medicaid and would you believe I qualified, its sad when a family with a engineer qualifies for Medicaid. At first I was embarrassed by it but it was huge blessing to be able to drop our old insurance and not pay a dime for our DD birth and her many hospitalizations and procedures she had done her first year of life.

Here's to that bouncy baby boy and your trip to WDW! :goodvibes

Hey, If there weren't mondays Tuesdays would take its place and then when the podcast came out everyone would be feeling so bad while listening they would stop liking the podcast and then everyone would be really really really sad.

So I say Mondays are not as bad as we think:thumbsup2 :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2 :thumbsup2

I assume you're aware of the unfortunate 'backstory' to that song . . . . about the girl in San Diego who shot up a playground and when asked why, responded simply "I don't like Mondays."

There's a lot of nuttiness in this world. We all can use a little extra magic to help us through the day.
