I love having mondays off. not only because I get three days weekends... so I can plan small trips like snowboarding or to LA. But also because the first day of work is Tues and the second is Weds... and look! you're already half way into the week! yay! so fast!
I dunno if it's like that for you but it's definitely like that for me and eric. it's weird how having one day off could seem soooo different compare to having the full 5 days. it's only one day!
