Monday, Monday ...

Tomorrow is Monday. What does Monday feel like to you?

Mondays, for me, mean that hubby heads back to work and that I spend day after day, hour after hour, home with my daughter.

Sometimes Mondays bring me one step closer to a night out with friends, though I have nothing planned this coming week.

This week I took my Sunday for grocery shopping, and miracle of miracles -- I shopped BY MYSELF! OMG! I so mean it was a miracle. I can't recall the last time I actually had that opportunity. I'm so serious. It was amazing. Not only no child, but my hubby was with the child, so no hubby, either. Ah, the thrill of it. Those of you who have this opportunity often, don't take it for granted. It's an incredible experience. It can even be peaceful, almost tranquil as you maneuver the aisles. heh heh. Yes, I seem to have lost my mind, don't I?
I haven't. I can't even begin to express how relaxing it was to be able to sort through my coupons as I walked through the store, and pulled myself over to the side of the aisle without a cranky child or husband tagging along. A total thrill, I tell you.

Mondays mean meal planning, when I'm on the ball. And this week I actually am so on the ball, having done grocery shopping today, that I've planned my dinners for the week. Hooray! No last minute, 6PM calls on what to eat or what to have hubby pick up on his way home. That will be nice for a change. Especially since there are almost always the nights when 6PM is when he calls to say he has no idea when he
will be coming home. Ah, the fun of it.

So, what's on your agenda for tomorrow?


  1. Today brings two things.. back to work and more importantly: MY KIDS COME HOME!!!!! Only for 24 hours though, then they are off to the beach while Mamma works all week!

  2. I actually really do like grocery shopping in a leisurely way like that! I'm glad you had some alone time. :)

  3. I hope you get this shopping time every week! xo

  4. Good for you...I definitely take shopping alone for granted...I actually pay my kids to do it for me...HHahahah..there are times though when i do enjoy it...not lately at much Bulls--- at work and problems galore and 2 in college as of september and Ohhhh Bla blah blah...I do look forward to the day when I am peacefully shopping as you did on Sunday...enjoy it..!
