...They're the worst. It seems like every Monday my To Do list is a mile long. Today I felt so overwhelmed with it (and the state of my house from the busy weekend) that I decided to stay home & get a handle on it.
The only other option was to abandon it all and head to Chapters with a Peppermint Hot Chocolate in hand. And that just seemed irresponsible.
And I miss my husband. He seems like a distant memory during the week. I miss having a team mate.
The basket of never-ending socks to be paired (above) seems to have peaked. And on top of the regular list I am trying to get a head start on some of the Holiday tasks for the year. I am finishing up my Christmas Cards (ordering them, not even close to sending them out), working on the long list of people to buy for (What am I going to get my sister-in-law???) and putting together the missing pieces for our Christmas outfits (Brian needs a white shirt, I need a jacket... the list goes on...and on.). My poor little message board is almost full... and even walking by it stresses me out a little.
So. I hate Mondays. But the great thing about that is in less than 12 hours it will be Tuesday and all will be right with the world again (provided I get those socks paired.)
To cheer myself up I am going to make 3 dozen sugar cookies tonight to pop into the freezer. It will be a head-start on the Christmas baking I usually do with my sisters each year. I made my grocery list for baking last night, it's a big one this year. I have big plans to make 15 different things... stay tuned for the epic failure that will occur from knowingly setting this goal MUCH too high :)
I also had to share this page that I came across in Mollys coloring book. I posted it on the fridge. Made me smile (which is appreciated on Mondays).
Which one doesn't belong? Uh, in a Childrens coloring book? All of them!
