I know, it’s Monday. Don’t get excited. But I have to address this recurring issue I’m having while it’s still fresh and before it gets any worse. It seems to be a weekly event and I never see it coming until it’s suddenly here. I may be the absolutely weirdest person on the face on the Earth, but for whatever reason, I HATE FRIDAYS.
It’s strange. I wait all week for the dang day to arrive, wake up feeling all TGIF and “Woo hoo the weekend is here” and sure enough by 6:00 pm, I’m ready to punch the next person who talks to me square in the nose. What is wrong with me? Who hates Friday when the entire weekend is before you?
I’ve been perplexed by the phenomenon for a while now and I’ve come to a few conclusions. First, I’m exhausted. And to make it worse, I’m one of those exhausted people who will become a cranky little kid and cry for no apparent reason until someone forces me into bed. I may think that I want to stay up and hang out and God forbid actually go out of my house on a Friday night, but when the time actually comes, I can’t hang. This leaves me feeling even grumpier because I feel like everyone I know is out and about having fun, and here I am missing out on something.
I also have an issue turning off my brain and destressing. I think I stay relatively sane and manage my stress well during the week because I don’t have a choice and I don’t have the time to let it get to me. When I get home on a Friday and am finally allowed to rest, all of the stress I’ve been holding in all week comes rushing out of me, and not in a fun let’s have a drink type of way. It comes out in a stressed out, leave me alone, but I wanna pick a fight with you anyway kind of way. Yea, I can be a little nuts. That’s why my fiance has even dubbed a name for my syndrome: GMF, or Grumpy Michelle Friday.
While I may be able to explain my feelings, I’ve been unsuccessful when it comes to controlling them, so I ask for advice. Does anyone else suffer from grumpy Fridays? How do you get out of your bad mood when it’s spiraling out of control? I probably should just bake this cake ahead of time and have it ready for my fiance on Friday...
