Ugh. Some weeks, Hump Day seems like a bigger hump to get over than others.

This week’s Wednesday follows Tuesday’s elections, and at the newspaper where I work, Election Day is always exciting – and always sets up the next day to be a bit of a drag.

I like to liven up my draggy days by scheduling multiple appointments for family members and pets! Because there’s nothing like driving two kids to different office settings around town for several hours after school to brighten up everyone’s attitude.

But maybe you do it differently. That’s cool.

Now, those who get through the work week by looking forward to the weekend might want to look even further ahead – to Monday. Recently the Montgomery Distillery started hosting what it calls Moscow Mondays, from 12 to 8 pm. And this next Monday – Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11 – a dollar from every cocktail sold during its Moscow Monday hours will go to the Children’s Museum and Families First. I hear there’s even going to be some Play Store items and other prizes given away.

Interested parents can check it out at 129 W. Front in downtown Missoula.
