Ask most people who work a 9 – 5 job what their favourite day of the week is and you’ll get a few different answers. Most people I know answer back emphatically with Saturday! And what’s not to like about Saturday? You don’t have to go into work, you have time to catch up on things around the house. Go out, have fun. Be a social person with the people you haven’t been able to see all week because you’ve been too busy with the day job and commuting.
But Saturday is not my favourite day of the week. Friday is. Why Friday? Because at the end of the work day the whole weekends stretches out ahead of me. I have Saturday and Sunday to look forward to. Sleeping in. Breakfast with my husband. Lots of cat cuddle time. I’m able to catch up on reading and writing. We watch our favourite shows that we’ve been letting accumulate on the DVR all week. We throw in some movies for good measure so I can keep up with my goal of watching 100 movies in a year.
Working from home on Fridays for the day job makes me love the day even more. I loved it when I had to drive into the office. It was still my favourite of the week. But now it’s even better. No long commute. As soon as 4:30 hits my weekend starts.
Lately we tend not to stay up too late on Friday night or Saturday. Too many things to get done the next day and we don’t want to be tired. I’m sure my family and friends will be shocked to learn that I get up by 9:30 on the weekend. I have been known to sleep in until 11 or noon in the past. But that’s in the past. 🙂 I have too many books I want to write to linger in bed for too long now.
My least favourite day of the week, you might have guessed from the title of this post, is Sunday. What’s the problem with Sunday? It’s the day before Monday. The day starts off with promise but when we cross over from morning to afternoon and then late afternoon the inevitable hits me. Soon it will be evening. Then night. We tend to stay up later on Sunday putting off that inevitable cross over into Monday. The sooner you go to sleep the sooner the new day comes so we wait as long as possible on Sunday before going to bed. Because of that Monday morning comes way too fast and I’m usually tired. I used to look forward to Sunday because The Amazing Race was on Sunday nights, then Monday night was Castle. But TAR moved to Friday nights so there’s nothing for me to look forward to on Sundays. And we never watch anything on the night it’s on now, preferring to DVR everything.
What’s your favourite day of the week?

A road trip without a plan sounded like a good idea when Lena and her friends hit the road. After hours of driving in the heat in a cramped car they’re all ready for something to eat and a good night’s rest.
Reflections Inn looks perfect for the group of friends. A little run down, it hides a supernatural horror. A curse that replaces people with their repressed alter egos forces the friends to fight for their lives. Duplicates who lack restraint, crave gratification emerge from the mirrors. Too late they realize they didn’t know each other as well as they thought.
One by one, Lena’s friends learn the truth about their repressed emotions, their suppressed violent urges.
What doesn’t kill them can only make them stronger.
