It’s Monday?

Oh shit, it’s Monday!
I totally forgot… well, not so much forgot as did not think about it at all.

It appears that my mind is at capacity. There is no room left for new thoughts—or even old thoughts. Or, it seems, even obvious thoughts. Of course it’s Monday!

I could blame the holiday (Happy Labor Day!) for my confusion, but that wouldn’t be fair. The truth is the weekend of September 7/8 is looming large in my head.
It must be the most popular Friday/Saturday of the year.
I’ve been dedicating all of my time (and mental space) for weeks now to helping, creating, designing, etc etc etc (yes, three etc!) and the only thing that seems to be creeping close to completion is the deadline.

Now everybody knows I don’t work.
And everybody knows that’s not true.
These past few weeks have been busting at the seams with obligations, most of which culminate this weekend.

As only one body, I must decline all but a single event each, so I won’t even bother to distract you with the other Friday or Saturday offerings. (But there’re plenty! And they’re awesome! But not as great as–)
Friday night I’ll be at my first official gallery showing as part of the Paper show at Collect Art Gallery,
Saturday I have my In Print Professional Writers Organization meeting,, an event I always enjoy, but seeing as it’s on the heels of this week; it’ll be the only thing left between me and a massive mind dump. (I feel like I should apologize in advance for my most likely zombie status.)

Sunday. Ah, sweet Sunday, how I look forward to you.

Sunday, September 9th can’t come fast enough!
Wait—what am I saying?
NO, I take that back… it can totally take its sweet long leisurely plenty of time getting here. But when it does, I will be ready for it.
(What choice will I have? Everything that needed to be done will have had to be, or not get, done by then!)

I will be ready… empty-headed and most likely enjoying a celebratory beverage.
(Go Bears!)


About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
