Monday morning again. How do you view Mondays? Do you love them? Dislike them? Not care? I go back and forth. As a school girl I didn’t love them at all. It meant another long week of school stretched ahead. In the summer I didn’t think much about liking or disliking, it was just another vacation day!
As a young wife I didn’t love Mondays because it meant my husband went back to work after being home for the weekend, the laundry had to be done, and the whole week stretched out – 5 whole days till another weekend. Same story as a young Mom. Monday morning meant hubby headed off to work and I was left to take care of babies and toddlers on my own after a weekend of him around to help out.
These days I rather like Mondays. It’s a fresh new work week. So many possibilities of things that can be accomplished, created, and finished. Some weeks I get the most project work done on Monday. Usually there is nowhere we have to go on a Monday. No appointments, no plans, nothing but catching up around the house and whatever I want to get accomplished.
I love my weekends with my hubby home. I don’t love seeing him head out for work on Monday, but since that is the way life goes around here, I choose to embrace Monday morning, enjoy my coffee, the quiet house, and relish the thought that a new work week has so many possibilities. And as fast as time goes these days the thought of a loooong five days till another weekend never even enters my mind.
What are you doing this Monday? Do you dread the week or do you look forward to all the possibilities the week holds?
Have a wonderful day!
