monday, monday…

Ever noticed how many songs talk about Mondays ? Rainy, sunny, manic, stormy, blue, with a new moon… the list goes on. Why the fascination with this specific day; is it because it signifies the beginning of a new work week ? I am going to buck tradition and just say it. I LOVE Mondays ! =) A fresh week of work is spread across the table, a fresh cup of coffee in front of me. The sun is up and I am motivated to accomplish all the tasks before me. As the week wears on, check-marks fill our planner and sheets of graph paper filled with math work are put into a binder for safe keeping. Grocery trips,  board games and walks in the park become memories, scratched off the TO-DO list with colorful scribbles. By the weekend, the story of our lives is thicker by another chapter and she is happily tucked into her dad’s life for a few days of play. Rinse and repeat. =)

Today marks the beginning of the last week of The Professor’s vacation. He goes back next week and will be insanely busy until Spring Break. So our week will be wonky, much to the delight of my foxling. A few days here at home, then off to her dad’s house during the middle of the week. I get her back on Saturday, which is already a rare treat for me. I plan on cooking burgers and watching a movie with her. Sunday will be spent outside as much as possible, followed by a game and baths with sugar scrub and some kind of healthy treat. A fantastic end to the holiday season, if I do say so myself.

I spent a bit of time hanging out at The Professor’s new digs yesterday, with my two fav peeps. The cold day was also very sunny, and their little home was bright and warm. I am still fighting off my sick, but even that could not put a damper on our collective, happy mood. It is so cathartic, being able to communicate with him on this new level. The hot tea and risotto he served were awesome, as well. He is a wonderful cook, and I do miss being able to enjoy the amazing food he whips up on a whim.

Time to teach, and learn. Have a wonderful Monday, and enjoy all the week has to offer !
