a letter to Monday

Dear Monday,

Here we are again; I guess it must be fate.

I made an outline of my New AND Improved schedule - when I will post and when I will write fiction and workout and paint and clean and cook and volunteer - applying this little known concept called discipline into my daily round.

My world showed promise, until you came along. You, with the crabby, overtired kids and the dishwasher rack, bowing to pressure, spilling broken glasses and mugs all over my messy kitchen.

(Oh, be careful, I think I got all the glass, but NO, I am not *yelling* at you it's just that - OUCH - see? I just got a sliver of glass in...yes, I will make you some breakfast and please stop crying over Pat (loaned to another sad child) and yes, I will put green goo in your hair as soon as I pull my head from the oven.)

Monday! For shame!

Maybe we should slow down, see other people. I've always had a soft spot for Thursday.

I'll facebook you. I promise.

Love,
Mama Milton

I know I am behind, ignoring my favorite bloggers.

My reader is busting at the seams.

I'll be by. For reals.

Oy, Mondays. I'm a Thursday kinda gal, too.

Thursdays is a good one.

Discipline to your daily routine. Please let me know how to do that. I am lost.

Hope the broken glass is out of your finger and kitchen.

sorry to hear of the dishwasher debacle.

Our new-ish fridge broke (well a door broke) so it doesn't close well. Hubby claims he can fix it; I hope so - I am not up for blowing a stack on a new one!

Monday, Monday.

You made me smile while I spend my Monday reading blogs and not cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, preparing for tomorrow's Brownie meeting, or even, I'm going to say it, yes, I am . . . taking a shower.

I did go workout though. That's good, right? But the not showing yet part? Not so good. At least I'm alone.

I really think we need to petition the school board to eliminate Monday classes. A good cost cutting measure. My children would happily remain curled in their beds until midday. How about yours?

Oh man, your writing style explains my thoughts today. I love it.

My then-toddler son once pulled a loaded dishwasher over onto himself. YIKES.

Monday has been slamming me to the ground, too. But, I'm impressed that you put together that schedule. The one I've been talking about and not doing...

Uh oh, we have the wayward Pat. I'm sorry I'm a week late getting the sad memo...
