Monday Morning // to-dos + photos

Monday mornings. I know, no one likes them.

I figured out the only way to get over NOT liking something - is to find something you DO like about. For instance, I don't like squash. But I like that they are yellow. (bad example)

So I've decided to focus on what I DO like about Monday mornings. For me, it's the chance to start fresh.

Seven days a week, I fail at something. Whether it's completing the long list of chores that need to get done, or driving my car into our garage wall. I make huge mistakes all the time.

I don't know what it is about Monday, but I always feel like I get a do-over. A new week, new challenges, new adventures.

On the schedule this week:

- Christmas cards. (Who's been tempted to post a picture on FB & tag everyone you want to mail one to in it? I'm kidding, mom.)

- Gym time. (This post-baby body needs some TLC. Any advice on how to lose 10 lbs in a week?)

- Christmas party(s). (Ornament exchange, anyone?)

- Shopping. (Please ask me how many gifts I've bought.)


I didn't include the boring stuff that actually consumes most of my time - cooking, cleaning & baby care (except, that one's not boring at all!) Meet me back here next Monday to see what I actually accomplished. :)

I also like Monday's because my love-tank is full from a great weekend. Weekends with Josh & Micah are the best. They are packed full with ministry activities, but we get to be together. Serving Jesus is what keeps our relationship growing. I find myself checking my phone less & spending more time interacting with my family and friends. Whoever decided that mail shouldn't run on the weekends was genius! Now if they'd only apply that to the internet, I'd be in good shape. (Who am I kidding, would any of us survive?!)

Here's a little photo recap of this past week. My favorite photo from each day. I think I may start making this a weekly habit.

But if I don't, there's always next Monday to try again. :)
