My Monday Ritual…


I love Mondays…


Because it is a lovely day to go out and stay out…

You see, it’s not the first day of the week, and its not the end of the weekend.

It is a Midweek day, so when you get out you do break your routine.

It is a less crowded day than the other days.

It is a work day all right, but while ur at ur desk, you anticipate a weekend like outing, carefree and happy, after the end of your working hours. Of course people do get out every day now adays but still when you designate a certain day for ur special day out… it just feels different…

And its a day just for me & Butootee, no one is allowed to come out with us, no one interrupts us, and no one dares makes plans with other people on this day… it’s our day 😀

What do i do on that glorious day?!

Well for a start, sometimes if i can i a take an early leave from work… if i can’t thats ok

I get out straight from work to whatever it place it is at the moment (Avenues of course)… we stroll around, shopping, hungry, thinking of what to have for lunch (and ruin my diet every single week)… after a nice quiet yummy lunch in a near empty mall, we must pay a visit to the food court in Avenues II to get my self some mini muffins on a stick from Crumbs OR Chowee Goweey Cookies now that they sell them…  This week insha2 allah im trying Cold Stone Ice Cream 😀

Then we hide the treats in my enormous bag and tip toe back to the movies… we watch a nice movie if there is something worth to watch, if not, then its free shopping time 😀

We must also visit Ikea cause i can never get enough… big problem hal ikea in the avenues…

and for my Butootee we must visit Al-Ghanim & Mac. Every single week. I’m getting bored of their merchandise already!

oh well… maykhalif… the boring stuff we have to endure for  men 😀

After we become too full to move, and have emptied our pockets shopping, and our legs are too tired to carry us any longer, we each get in our cars, sometimes getting dirty looks from the melageef watching us and thinking we are only dating… and we drive home, change into comfy pj’s, and plant ourselves into DHW and Ugly Betty 😀

Isn’t Monday a pretty awsome day?!

  13. I heard on Mondays the movie theater gets pretty crowded… but maybe you go on a good time of the day! But come on… Monday is the second day of the week.. when I am done with Tuesday (which is the actual midweek day :-P) I anticipate the weekend then hehehehe

    As for weekdays, I am like you… I go to the malls and such! On weekends I stay at home or visit friends at home to avoid the crowd and the madness!
