Rainy Days and Mondays

Talkin’ to myself and feelin’ old
Sometimes, I’d like to quit
Nothin’ ever seems to fit
Hangin’ around
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

What I’ve got they used to call the blues
Nothin’ is really wrong
Feelin’ like I don’t belong
Walkin’ around
Some kind of lonely clown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

Funny but it seems I always wind up here with you
Nice to know somebody loves me
Funny but it seems that it’s the only thing to do,
Run and find the one who loves me
(The one who loves me)

What I feel has come and gone before
No need to talk it out (talk it out)
We know what it’s all about
Hangin’ around
Nothin’ to do but frown
Rainy days and Mondays always get me down

-The Carpenters

Combine a rainy, chilly Monday with a husband who deployed this morning for six months and a vet appointment this afternoon for Wilbur cat who has gone suddenly blind, and you could say today has definitely got me down.  I’m trying to regroup—sitting in Starbucks, drinking my iced mocha and looking over my extensive to do list—but I think today is a lost cause. 

I’ll be okay, it’ll just take a little time and getting back into a routine.  It’s not as if I don’t have a hundred things to do in the next few days, weeks, months.  There are some good things on the horizon, too.  I can only feel sorry for myself for so long before I get tired of whining and get back to writing and making plans.

But probably not today.  Today, I’m feeling sad and watching the miserable rain.

    You deserve to whine.  Or is it wine? 

    We should do both, soon!  Or I’ll just listen and help you drink the wine.
