I don’t want to work, I just want to bang on the drum all day long!

I have a love hate relationship with Sundays.  I love the fact that I’m off work, I can sleep in, go hiking or off roading in my vehicle.  When winter starts to arrive, I can have a lazy Sunday watching football or some movies.  Sundays can be family time since the kids usually don’t have practices or games with their various sporting ventures.  I think Craig Morgan summed up Sundays the best with his song “That’s What I Like About Sundays”  He basically paints a picture, at least for me, of a lazy relaxing day.  The kind of Sundays I love.

The hate is knowing I have to go to work the next day.  The dread, as Sunday afternoon turns into Sunday night, only grows.  It’s like back when I was a kid and dreading Sunday night because school was the next day.  By the time I head to bed, I have already started the countdown to Friday’s quitting time.  The mind is calculating how many hours until the next weekend rolls around.  Since I don’t work for the federal, state, county or city governments I don’t get all those bonus days off or extra three-day weekends, outside of Memorial Day and Labor Day.  No I don’t even get President’s Day or MLK Day.

I believe work is interfering too much with my free time.  I’m ready to jump on the next get rich quick scheme so I can have more time to play.  I need to win one of the huge Powerball jackpots, of course I should start playing Powerball to increase my chance of winning.  Oh well, 40 working hours to go this week until the weekend rolls along. Todd Rundgren said it best, I don’t want to work, I just want to bang on the drum all day long.
