Monday Musings

Oh yes, it's Monday again....seriously where do the weekends go?  

I was thinking this morning if the government really wants to help our economy, why not implement a four day work week.  If companies feel it is necessary they could have employees work a few extra hours during the four days to make up for the time.  I just think people need more time to relax.  It just feels like so many people are stressed out these days, that they don't have enough time to relax, time to enjoy life, or spend with their families.  Something has to give, and somewhere along the way people need more time.

So....this Monday is a big change in our household, as my man started his new job today after being laid off for over five months.  It's a big adjustment for him and us.  Angel won't eat today, she is just laying around looking so sad.  You see she follows her daddy everywhere, if he walks out the door she sits waiting by the door for him.  It's nuts because she isn't like that with anyone else. 

And I'll admit I myself being unemployed enjoyed having his company because being at home all day by oneself can get very lonely because there is no interaction with others.  At least when people are at work they have work to keep them busy and coworkers to talk with.  

Although, it might feel less lonely if I had a house....when you own a house there is always work to be done, as opposed to renting.  Renting just feels impersonal.

Mega Millions is up to quite a few million, if only I could win the lottery.  I played Powerball last week when it peaked at 225 million but nothing.  And quite frankly I was confident I would win.  Then again I guess everyone is hopeful they will win. 

Yeah I know winning the lottery is never going to happen....but hey it's fun to dream occasionally right?   I just want my own house with a little land, enough money to take care of the people I love, and enough money to own a dog rescue.  I know money doesn't buy happiness but it does allow people to create a better world for themselves and others.  And that is one lesson you learn quickly upon being laid off.

Ahhhh....this is definitely one of those daydreaming Mondays.  So on that note I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes...."Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars."
