Monday mornings aren’t so bad if you are me! While most of you dread Monday’s, I actually look forward to them. I know you probably think I am a nutcase but really take a peek into my day.
I start my day as early as 6 AM and as late as 8 AM depending on how late I stayed up to watch The Walking Dead. The first thing I do is open as blinds as possible. I LOVE sunshine and it makes my depression not so bad. I open the front and back doors to the security screen doors. I love fresh air in my home especially with three animals!
If I am up early I get to help my 13 year old get off to school and wish my boyfriend a great day at work. If I wait until later to rise I have to make sure the animals are fed and go outside. I then get settled on the couch with a cup of coffee and my computer. I turn on the television to The Today Show. My yorkie settles in on the couch next to me on a fuzzy blanket. I follow up The Today Show with Wendy Williams and then possibly some HGTV.
Monday is my time to focus on improving my blog. It is the day that I get, for the most part, uninterrupted time to really brainstorm ideas and put pen to paper. Mondays are also when I get to catch up on my housework. I still haven’t finished the mountain of laundry I need to do or cleaned the kitchen from dinner last night. The two week old pile of pet hair on my carpet still needs to be vacuumed. Probably time to invest in a quality Bissell vacuum cleaner like one of these – https://www.bissell.com/vacuums/canister-vacuums. And that’s just the pet hair on the carpet, I don’t even want to think about how much is on the furniture. Does anybody else find that pet hair literally clings to the couch? It makes it so hard to clean! I did find these tips the other day that I thought I’d share with those of you who also suffer from dog hairs on couch. Oh yeah, I still have about 30 articles of clothing to iron today, otherwise it won’t get done until possibly next weekend. Hooray for me though! I was able to get a pork loin in the crock pot by 12 today. I know the family will love pulled pork sandwiches for dinner tonight.
Monday night will focus on some family time and finishing up my household duties. I hope to fit in a nap before I have to get to work at midnight.
What does your Monday consist of? How do you make your Monday marvelous?
