Few things follow you through childhood, right up through adulthood. One thing that hasn’t changed for me is my love for that sarcastic furry fatty, Garfield. I’ve owned his “Mondays Suck” posters, coffee mugs and t-shirts because I’m a believer… Mondays do suck. Well, they used to.
I admit to having a slightly unique perspective, because I’m fortunate enough to be able to work from home… on weekdays and weekends. As a result, having to return to “the office” on Monday morning doesn’t hit me as hard as it may hit you.
This morning wasn’t much different than other Monday mornings for me. I got up, made coffee, and sat down at my brand new computer (Thanks, hubby! Happy Valentine’s Day!) and proceeded to check my social networking sites to see what everyone was up to. This is my equivalent to meeting co-workers at the break room table for that mandatory first cup of coffee.
Chatter on Twitter about WordPress developments over the weekend, Facebook posts with all new fresh content to devour… I realized that Mondays didn’t suck anymore. With interaction between my online peers, clients and friends, I realized that Monday has turned into a feeling of enthusiasm for a new week beginning.
I’m enjoying the constant stream of new friends I meet through my social networks, and am happy to have started participating in LinkedIn and StumbleUpon more. The only reason I can think of now why Mondays might suck is because there just aren’t enough hours in the day to consume all the rich and helpful content I’m finding!
A new, Wenchy Valentine’s Day Wallpaper
To celebrate Monday not sucking, I made another Valentine’s Day wallpaper. Enjoy the Wenchy goodness! Oh, and if you’re offended by artistically implied nudity, you’re gonna wanna skip this one.

Well, Valentine’s Day is over. Sorry you missed the bonus desktop wallpaper in time for the holiday! There’s still a couple of weeks use in my original Valentine’s Day themed Desktop Calendar though! Consider signing up for my ‘occassional’ ShareLetter so you don’t miss out on timely surprises!
