Messy Monday. I used to hate Monday’s. Having to go back to work with the guilt of not finishing all the housework, laundry, errands, groceries, projects etc. I’ve worked really hard at changing my perception of Monday to now being excited. Y’all it’s a new week!! You have a whole week to get junk done, to plan fun adventures, to mess up, to grow, to read, the list goes on and on!! Today I woke up in a great mood, got to read and workout before work, smooched on my love before he left and wasn’t even in a hurry to get kids ready and to school which in and of itself is a miracle. Work wasn’t too overwhelming and I got the Big guy down for a nap. I finally had a quiet moment to have lunch and work on posts for the week when my phone rang freaking loud and unexpected. It immediately woke up the big guy. To make matters worse it was the school. A friendly reminder that school got out early today and my boys were waiting to be picked up. Whomp whomp. Grabbed big guy and jammed to get the big boys. My sanity moment that I look forward to daily but especially on a Monday quickly vanished. So now with an undone to-do list, laundry overdue and floors that didn’t get mopped I then tried to find a pic to post for this glorious day. Months ago I took a ton of blog pics you know so in my craziness I could just grab a pic and post. But this set of pics in this mostly thrifted outfit was quickly deleted because if you didn’t notice I’m the same shade of white as my booties. Girl, have you heard of self tanner?! I mean you are practically see thru skin. But you know I try to keep it real. So here I am. A hot mess of a mom. And I’ve already failed. Multiple times. And it’s Monday. Thankfully I now understand that attitude/emotions can easily be changed if you want them to change. So I plan on having the best week. Yes. Yes I will!!! And you should too.
