    Some of my favorite PokerStars tournaments run on Sunday, particularly the Sunday Storm.

    I always go to church, eat lunch with my mom, and then relax/watch tv with DH on Sunday. However, I really don’t dread work. Some years I’ve had rough groups, so I’d have liked to have more time away from them. This year is great.

    I really don't have any ritual, but I also don't really get the Sunday blues. Having said that, Sunday definitely has a different vibe than does Friday or Saturday.

    Sunday is a day of relaxation and doing a whole lot of nothing. I don’t have a ritual per say but like others I don’t generally dread work. There are some times where it has been an awful week and I dread going back or if I know my workload for that upcoming week is massive I dread it too. But those are exceptions thankfully.

    I don't really dread going to work that being said my family is always a great source of inspiration and motivation for me. I never had a great relationship with my parents — my mom died when I was young and my dad was a drunk — so really growing up the only people I had were my brothers and my sister and they're all younger than me. With how my husband works, Sunday/night is really the only chance we have we can hang out as a family unit.

    It actually hasn't been a thing for me in years. When I first taught before taking a career/family break, I did get it. But since I've been back, it rarely happens. I think I just take it par the course.

    What's actually funny is that sometimes I do have "ugh, Sunday nights," but it has nothing to do with teaching the next day. I love my parents, I really do, but we also live a few blocks from them, and are oft expected to be at the open-invitation Sunday night dinner. A lot of the times, I'm happy to go, but other times I just don't feel like it.

    I used to get this really bad, back when I used to really struggle. Now, I just get it at the end of breaks, or when I have a rough week ahead (meetings, meetings, meetings!!). It's not that I dread work per se, but that I dread the amount of stress and unrealistic pressure, especially from the adults I work with, not from the kids as much anymore. I combat it by making sure I have at least one thing I'm looking forward to during the week ahead. Oh, and by doing all my laundry on Sunday if possible so I can wear my favorite outfits :)
