Days I hate

There are 2 days of the week that I don't really care for. The first is Mondays. My Mondays are my LOOOOOONG days. My Monday starts at 4:30am (even before) when I get up and get dressed. Lexi and I are out the door by 5am (advance prep on Sunday evening allows me to be up and ready in 30 minutes!) for the drive to my mom's. We're at my mom's by 6am and I can sit with her and Lexi until 6:30 when my dad is ready to leave. My dad and I take the train into the city together on Mondays. I leave work at 4:30 and wait for my dad...we catch a 5:15pm train and are back at his house by 6pm. Now, depending on if Lexi is napping or not, I'll either hang out, or we pack up and leave. I usually walk in the door with Lexi on my hip between 7 and 7:30 pm. Loooooong day.

But I can deal with the long Mondays. I'm not thrilled with them, but I can deal. It's Tuesdays that I HATE. Lexi is still asleep when I leave at 5:45am (my normal time for the rest of the week). And after work, DH and I play in a poker league. So I don't get home until after 10pm most Tuesdays....well after Lexi's bedtime. So I don't see my peanut at all...and I swear, I go through Lexi withdrawal. Now, I know that the poker league is something that DH and I choose to participate in, and that we can easily NOT go...but it's our one night out and we've been going since Lexi was 2 weeks old (we used to take her with us when she was small enough to sleep in her carseat...DH and I joke that her first words will be "All In"). I have a love/hate relationship with Tuesdays. I look forward to the social interaction and the game play...but am always torn about going to play, or going home and seeing Lexi.

Tonight, I don't have to make that decision. Lexi is coming to poker! Everyone there LOVES her...and always ask when we're bringing her back...so everyone will get to see her tonight! My mom has an appointment, so she won't make it to my house in time for DH to leave...so he's bringing her with and my mom will pick her up from there! WooHoo....I get to see her!!

Mondays suck in general. I hate days when I get home after dark since I leave when it's still dark.
