Last night, while fast forwarding through the commercials, my hubby announced he needed to leave earlier for the Monday meeting. “Get me up about 6:00 and I will be able to take my shower about 6:35-6:40.” That is all well and good if he can actually follow the demands of the ticking clock. So far so good! He has roughly 10 minutes to get dressed and out the door! “MEN!”
We all have crazy schedules that drive us rapidly in many directions on Mondays. Everything is a blur as we continue to try and accomplish our preset duties for the day. Life thrusts it’s not-so-humorous interruptions into our day and we press on finally crawling into our safe haven and pulling the covers over our heads. Pain, fear, bickering, pure exhaustion…the interruptions are many but, we remain strong. “We are strong…because we get up the next morning and do it all over again!”
Do what you can to the best of your ability! That is all we can do!
So…put a smile on your face and I will put one on mine…face the new day!
Make it the best day…because you never know what tomorrow may bring.
Oh and by all means…finish that cup of coffee!
Have a great day!
Here we are again! The day of the week that pulls you from the comfy-cozy-confines of peaceful slumber by your hair. “My inner voice screams when realizing the alarm clock has not even reached the predestined wake-up call.”
Not yet…just five more minutes…please! There is no reply as I rise and begin The Monday Routine…Yuck!
Fortunately I have friends who have left me some furry-funnies to give me an early morning smile!
What great friends I have! They share my deepest-darkest feelings…The Monday Routine…Yuck!
I NEED MORE COFFEE!
That’s the way to start the day…
I will finally be able to use that insulated bag and keep the IV bags hot and ready. It may be a long day but I will get through it…like a heavily caffeinated trooper!
Now go…start your Monday, hopefully with a smile, and Have a great day!
It has come again…that dreaded day of the week. My friends have struggled to gain their footing this past weekend to no avail. Sleep deprivation occurs and the alarm begins it startling Zombie Wake-Up call. The dragging of feet and puffy eyes tell the tale. OMG It’s Monday!
Here is a sample of sentiments on the auspicious occasion:
And of course!
Off we go…to face another Monday. Tip for the day: Hydrate!
You know what this means for me…right? COFFEE! Busy day ahead but I will not bore you with the details. I know your Monday is just filled to the brim with activity.
Have a great day!
With it being a Monday I am up, as a friend call it, at the “butt-crack of dawn”. I begin my normal routine and know that several extra tasks have been added. My husband had several bad experiences with lunch last week and asked for items that he could take instead of eating out. So… am cutting up celery and carrots.
After I fixed his breakfast and our lattes’ I set upon the task of chop…chop…chop! I also cut up some pineapple and strawberries. Hopefully he will not eat all of it and have some left for tomorrow. Yep…you guessed it…he is trying to diet!
He announced Saturday that he was going to quit smoking! “That’s wonderful!…when?”
My 19 year old went to work out early this morning and will come home and clean up only to return to the same gym…he starts teaching his first class, Self Defense and Boxing, today!
Early day for my 21 year old…instead of the 11:00 starting time he opens today.
And what will I be doing today…I am also experiencing a first today!
I will be going to Curves this morning…
I need to get motivated and find some accountability!
I did try on a pair of my old pants yesterday and almost got them buttoned. “That’s better than the last time!”
When I finish at Curves I will run home (drive) and clean up before heading up to help a friend in her classroom. “It’s that time of year again…time for the sorting and reorganizing of games and books…time to pack her personal teaching aids…did I mention she is moving to a new school in the fall?”
“I better take some Tylenol and see if I can keep this migraine from starting! I am already feeling it in my neck and forehead…Not Good!”
After helping my friend for about three hours I will return home and…
“I wish!” I will begin the everyday cleaning and preparation of dinner. “Mom’s job is never done…and if it is then no ones tells mom!” Fortunately I don’t have a whole lot to do on my daily chore list. “Now there is a First!”
What is on your list of things to do today? You might be surprised and find that Today is a Day of Firsts for you as well! As for me…i will finish my latte and then go get ready…I will be leaving in about 35 minutes. Have a great day!
