Mondays Are Always The Hardest

Mondays are always the hardest.

It is the start of a new week.

A new week of waiting...wondering...worrying.

Anxiety is always highest on Mondays as you anticipate what the week will bring. Will be it good news or bad? Will we hear anything at all?

Tuesdays you think "o.k. Monday is over news should have been gained and today it might be delivered to those of us waiting".

Wednesday is certainly the day you will hear something...everyone knows Wednesday is the day of news. Right?

Thursday your hope is waning. Oh I guess there won't be anything this week....but wait, there is always Friday!

Friday comes and goes. Either you have had the news you are waiting on or you haven't but either way you know the weekend is upon you and have 2 beautiful days where your brain can rest from all the fretting and wondering and checking of phones and emails.

Mondays though....they are always the hardest!

Praying for a Christmas gift to come your way in the form of a little boy. Maybe this Monday is leading to a Good News Tuesday. Maybe this Monday will be your last "no visa Monday". Maybe? Hopefully!

I hear ya! We are waiting to hear if we passed the medical which we have waited 8 weeks for (which was up last week) and it is making me crazy trying to be patient. Apparently they can't get through???? Ahhhhhhh! I would be ecstatic to hear that you guys were approved-it would give me some hope that we too might someday get through!

I am so sorry you have had so many difficult Mondays, and Tuesdays, and so on. No one should ever have to go through this, least of all someone like you!

Hope you have a Best Monday (or Tuesday or Wednesday) EVER very soon. This week would be good ....

Mondays ARE the hardest. Hugs, and I'm praying that soon you will be able to stop wondering when news will arrive.

I find Fridays depressing because I know that by 2pm here, there is no chance of a referral call for another weekend. I'm sure I'll switch to Mondays being the hardest when I am at your stage. Right now, everyday sucks as we wait to update our file...

Rana - this is SO true! Months ago I said almost this exact same thing to Aaron. I sometimes break by Wednesday afternoon and fire a quick email....I think we all crave info information and good news info is so hard to come by!
Hugs my friend!

The only good thing I can say about this monday is that it's over.

I remember the dance of feelings over each day of the week. The tension Sunday night as you try not to hope for news on a Monday morning. The despair on Thursday night as news rarely shows up on a Friday. Yuck. I think we should tell the CHC that not only am I crossing my fingers and toes (which makes life difficult enough) but I am also now prepared to hold my breath! Take that, CIC.
