Mondays are Mine

I know, I know - most of you dread Mondays. Me? I rather look forward to them. Because on Mondays, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., I am HOME. ALONE. BY MYSELF. IN THE QUIET. I never plan anything for Mondays. The kids go to school, Hubby goes to work, and I cherish my time to myself. I can sit around in my jammies, read blogs and Facebook, sleep, eat what I want (I just wolfed down two Junior Chili Cheese Frito Snack Wraps from Sonic, and a handful of cherry sours washed down with a swig of ginger ale. I think I might throw up now, but at least there won't be anyone knocking at the door yelling, "MOM?!?" while I'm doing it!). I might throw a load of wash in on Mondays - I might not. I might make phone calls or pay bills - I might not. The beauty of Mondays is that I do what I want. I think everyone needs a day like that, don't you?

I am so with you on that one! Just having the option of whether or not to do laundry actually makes me want to do the laundry. Enjoy your day and hang in there. Take care,
Julie

Yes. I know the feeling. I love that alone time too. Give me a spoon and a gallon of ice cream and I'm a goner:)

I swear I tweeted on Monday that Mondays were fine, it was Tuesdays that was hell.

I found your blog through today's camera critters and kept reading. Monday's are my favorite day of the week also. Love the quiet. I do tackle the laundry, but that's because I can do it uninterrupted and I don't feel like I'm missing out on family time. And if that gets done, I feel more free to make plans for lunch with a friend on Tuesday. :)
