I can tell that this Monday is going to be a struggle. Usually, when I wake up on Monday, I'm ready to embrace the week, ready to get some real tasks done. The husband is returning to work, the toddler is off to school, and I am refreshed from the weekend and ready to tackle some real tasks and projects.
Last Monday, I was excited to bake, ready to make some hearty soup, and itching to get some laundry done. Heck, I might even do some real housecleaning (maybe I'd finally get the basement fully cleaned out and ready for winter?!)
I had a great Monday morning. I made my son a good breakfast, packed him a healthy lunch, got him to school on time (always a win). Then I returned home and baked a carrot cake:
Made some broccoli & cheddar soup for lunch:
After my delicious lunch, I did some more laundry, and even got some letters written to some friends (I loooove sending snail mail to my friends). And then this little freak hail storm happened:
The hail storm lasted a good 10 minutes and several of our cars got dented and taillights were broken. The insurance company is coming this week to tally up the damage.
But that storm and the ensuing damage didn't even ruin my Monday mojo. I folded some laundry, took a quick afternoon nap, and snuck in some vacuuming before I went to pick up my son from school. The rest of the day was fun with a lovely dinner at home and lots of after dinner play time, and tv time for mama and papa after said toddler went to bed.
But this Monday, I'm looking at my To Do list and I'm not sure I want to tackle any of it:
- Take the comforters to the dry cleaners for a cleaning
- Grocery shopping
- Schedule my son's well-baby check up
- Return library books that are due this week
- Get caught up on some scrapbooking that is very much behind
I'm hoping that after I drop my son off at school, I will figure out what I need to do to jump start my usual desire to get something productive done and that will lead to a series of more tasks. Maybe I need a walk to clear my head or I need to tackle a really serious cleaning job (the bathrooms?!)
I'll let you know what ends up happening this lovely Monday.
What do you do when you get in a funk and don't feel like doing anything much?
