Where have all those Mondays gone? #MondayMusings

Monday Musings

Today I realised that actually I am a lazy person. I also realised that I only function under pressure and with deadlines – after all I am an Indian and we Indians are like that only. Sometimes I find it hard to write, so I find it easy to stick to a meme, or a blog hop or even respond to a prompt, hence when Corinne announced a weekly post every Monday, I was happy to jump on . Hey! I thought to myself, that’s 52 posts taken care of – if I have to post every Monday.  Similarly, I participate in Skywatch Fridays which means that’s another 52 posts taken care of. In addition if I link up to 52 WOW prompts on Blogadda, it gives me a total of 156 posts that I simply have to post. 

Now you will probably wonder why I am obsessed with all these numbers. Actually, I am not into Statistics and actually find that numbers do lie. A long, long time ago when we were in college, a friend was given a dismal score of 3 out of a possible score of 100. Naturally we were aghast because she definitely deserved more than that. I remember going with her to the master and heard her plead her case. The master asked for the paper and promised to re-check her answers. A week later he gave it back with a revised score of 6! This time there was a collective gasp from the four of us who had accompanied her to the Staff Room. The master looked at us with amusement and said, ” Well, you can’t complain because your marks have increased by 100%”. Ever since that day, I find that statistics aren’t always true indicators of reality.

So, coming down to the numbers, I have been tracking my visitors and views and posts etc on Google Analytics and found that January was a good month with increased visitors and views. However, February, which began well soon faced a slump because of Bai problems no less. Suddenly, I found myself inundated with work – baby sitting, housework, cooking, grocery shopping, content writing and absolutely no time to even think, let alone write.

I realised then that 52 Mondays were not happening, nor were 52 Fridays and 52 WOW weekends. I wonder what happened to all those Mondays?

Do you think if I start tagging them with serial numbers they will be easier to keep track of?

A granny who always sees the humour in life and tries to do things differently. When others make cupcakes, this granny makes banana fritters. When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!


    1. Thanks for your words of encouragement. Currently I am beset with housework and am frustrated at my lack of home management . Am trying to be more organised and delegating more work.

  1. I so much wish to write twice a week but am not able to, mainly for the same reasons as you. And on top of that I have joined a yoga class, which I am ceasing to like now but have to do for health factors. I have to spend time counselling myself to develop liking for it which is taking more time than the actual class time. So the time which I used to spend reading and commenting on other blogs has also got lost. Inspite of all this, I can give myself a little pat for not missing Monday Musings. I think I cannot be at peace if I do not write for Mondays.
    The incident on 100% marks increase cracked me up. This is what I love about your posts, they leave me with a happy face 🙂

  2. I like your blogging goals. They definitely give a sense of direction and purpose. While some days you may not be able to write but you may catch up on other days and in case you are not able to write as per your plan remember this, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” 🙂
    Good luck!
