    Your problem is you are not going fast enough. The faster you go, the more time slows down. You need to get close to light speed.

    Sounds like someone had a little too much time on their, er, hands.

    Now that I'm retired I have 6 Saturdays and Sunday. I do know what you mean and the way I got away from the Monday blues when I was working was to make sure I accomplished something (other than writing on POA) over the weekend. Set a goal on Friday whether it is building something, reading something or doing practice maneuvers in your plane. When Monday comes around you will feel better for it. Oh, never mow your lawn on the weekend, that's what Wednesday afternoon is for.

    If you're sleep deprived during the week and catch up on the weekend, then your weekend is shorter than it should be. If your spend your entire weekend doing things you need to do and never do anything you want to do, you'll feel like you never left work, just went to a different location.

    Balance is the key. You have to get some things done, but you can't neglect things you want to do.

    So, you are saying that the trick is to get more sleep at work?

    First are you drinking mezcal every weekend? or just the weekends where you accelerate time?
    The more you enjoy the weekend the shorter it is.

    it depends on how many different things you do. Many = long. Few = short.

    Sit and watch TV, weekend goes fast. Get out and do a lot of different thinges and it seem a long weekend.

    Or, maybe it's the other way around. ;)

    Yup.
    Always worked for me. That's what those silly hats are really for.

    As a friend's bumper sticker said, "When you're over the hill you pick up speed".

    Bingo. That works for me. WORK is a four letter word. :D
