Monday, Monday, Monday

I was reading back over yesterday's post and MAN was I long-winded... Of course, I guess Daddy H deserves to have the longest post I have ever written, right?

Well, today's post will be a short one. As you remember, I hate Mondays. They are the worst! However, I have committed myself to finding three things for which I am grateful for each Monday...

Here goes...

1. Lunch with an old friend. Today, Myddle and Babee H and I are meeting NC for lunch at the local restaurant. NC and I used to teach together, back when I was a new mom. She has always been such a role model for me as a mom. She has such an amazing relationship with her children and I can only hope that I will be able to build the same quality relationship with mine.

2. The prospect of snow. I'll be the first to admit that I hate winter. I mean HATE it. What's to like with the static-y hair, the constant shocks of electricity, the dry skin, chapped lips, cold seats in the car, wind, no outside recess, etc, etc, etc.... But I do love the joy that snow brings my children. They are so very excited about the possibility of snow and have been checking out the windows all day long in anticipation. Now, if only I could find their hats and mittens... hmmm...

3. A long, scalding hot bath and a good book. Nothing makes me relax and takes the stress out of the day like escaping for a few moments into a tub of so-hot-you-can-barely-stand-it water and a book you just can't put down. Every day I make sure I have time to take a bath. When the kiddos were younger, I rarely had time for this luxury, but now that they are older, I make sure I get these 30 minutes to myself each day. For just a little while, I am not "Mama" or "Mrs. H" or "Honey"... I can truly escape into the pages of a book while the hot water relaxes the tension out of my body... Calgon, take me away!!!!!

So, what are you thankful for this Monday? C'mon, you can think of SOMETHING!!!


  1. Hubby being home today to help run interference!!!

  2. Hmmm, how about the fact that I had time to take a shower that was long enough to shave my legs! Yay!

  3. I am thankful for another day home with my boys...maybe even another one tomorrow if we have a snowday!! Wah hoo!! Even though I love being home with my boys, I am also thankful for nap time! Peace and quiet for just a little while!!

  4. I am thankful for you being so kind to help me "pimp out" my blog! I set up my background so whenever you're ready to make that picture for me, go right ahead. Thanks for being sooo very sweet to me!


I am very THANKFUL for any and all comments! They truly make my day! So, THANKS!
