Friday gets all the love

Every week I can count on at least one FB pal saying "TGIF" or something similar letting us know how excited they are for Friday. I'm guilty of it too.

Statements like "I can't wait till Friday!" and "Friday. Finally." have found their way into my status updates too. It's embedded in our brains from grade school to long for Friday and the weekend in general.

Average life expectancy is 78 years. That means that the average person will see 4056 Fridays during their stay on Earth.

You might think that sounds like a lot. Until you really think about those numbers.

If I live to 78, there's only 2288 more Fridays for me. Not nearly enough.

Now add in the 13,728 additional days that aren't Fridays. Yep. That sounds more like it.

So don't be surprised to see "TGIW" as one of my future status updates because I'm going to cherish everyday that I have, not just Fridays.

Having said that...

TGIF! (cause well it IS Friday after all)

*Except for Mondays. Sorry, but I just cannot bring myself to give Monday any love.

If the work weeks becomes 4 days then it could be TGIT. So, let us pray for a shorter work week. I don't do Mondays either.

Wow... you go Math girl.

I actually don't MIND Monday that much. It's the Wednesday that I thought was Thursday that I have more serious issues with.

After this week and today, I am not only saying TGIF, but I might totally ignore Monday.

I thought that when I quit working (outside the home, natch) that day of the week wouldn't matter to me, but Fridays are still special because it means that Neil will be home with me to help out the next day. I'm down with TGIW, though.

What an awesome attitude! As my friend, the coroner likes to say: "I'm happy with every day I'm on this side of the ground!"

Breaking down the Fridays we have left is an interesting way to look at things- I like it! Oh, and I'm visiting from SITS- Stop by my place when you get the chance- and yippee I am now following you :-)

I don't blame you, Monday sucks.

There is something about everyday of the week that I love,but Fridays are still at the top of my list because hubby and I have our Starbucks morning date most Fridays.
