Blue Monday

Yes, this is apparently a song by Fats Domino made famous by some other group. But it is also listed as "Blue Monday: the most depressing day of the year"

Monday, January 22, 2007
Bad weather, credit card bills and the failure to keep up those good resolutions make today the bleakest of the year. So if you feel down, you are not alone - but help is at hand, reports Richard Garner
The weather is bad, the nights are still long and your Christmas overspending has finally caught up with you.
On top of that your New Year resolution to give up smoking has just gone out of the window as you strive to cope with the pressures of having gone back to work after the holiday break.
So welcome to "Blue Monday" - Monday, 22 January - officially designated by a psychologist as the most depressing day of the year. It has been singled out by Dr Cliff Arnall, psychologist and former tutor at Cardiff University, who has used mathematical equations to reach his verdict.

Glad to know I have a legitimate excuse for why today has sucked...

If I had only known yesterday. That explains a lot!

Any reason to pass the blame off on someone else, right? That is so my generation!

I admire the closeness you have with your children, and all the things that you all do together. I hope that I am that kind of mom. I think you are fun and silly in such a good way. You are fun to be around. And I have rarely seen you without a smile on your face.

Your love for your family is so obvious! I'm happy to have reconnected with your families in this small way. Best wishes!
