It’s Monday. Feels Like a Monday, Too.

Descanso Gardens

I hope all of the moms out there had a lovely Mother’s Day. Mine was pretty good, minus the end-of-the-day meltdown involving a train and plant.  It was a “are you kidding?” moment, for sure.

For lunch, I was craving a cheeseburger so that is what I had. Simple and good and exactly what I wanted. Then, we headed to Descanso Gardens. It was cloudy but nice and then we picked up taco fixings for dinner. I can’t complain.  I love to spend time outside. It clears my head and just gives me a much needed break.

Today though, I am seriously dragging. I’ve not been well for weeks and I struggle just to get through the day. What a bore. I am so ready for something different.

I am going to grab a cup of coffee and pray that its restorative properties are enough to sustain me because it’s Monday and not Friday and a girl’s gotta make the best of it. Right?

Feeling Pensive

New York City

Everything seems to be happening quickly these days. Senior year will do that to a person. The Teen is currently on a trip to New York City for choir. The show he is in, Little Shop of Horrors is at the end of April, prom is in a little over two weeks, there’s a choir concert coming up, a banquet, some festivals to participate in and then graduation will be upon us.

Where did the time go?

The Girl is wrapping up 7th with her choir festival, numerous track meets and we are already thinking about summer camp. SO much is on my mind these days.

Plus, my boss quit. I’ll just leave it at that.

It’s funny because I go from thinking about college stuff, to thinking about how I really need a new purse. My mind is not able to focus on any one task for very long. I need an hour or two to just stare blankly at a wall.

This is where reading is such a blessing. You’d think that my brain’s lack of focus would not bode well on the reading front, but quite the opposite. All this nervous energy has me racing through books. Good ones, too. I just finished Hour of the Bees which was surprisingly good given its magical elements (not usually a fan).  I am currently reading Tuesday Nights in 1980  and it’s good so far. I am thinking about picking up Walden.  I picked up a copy and it’s been staring me in the face for a couple of months.


I’m not sure what the next few weeks will bring but I can’t tell you how much all of your comments mean to me. I am blessed to be able to connect with so many of you via social media because seriously, hearing from you guys makes me smile each and every time.

Plus, there are always books to discuss. Am I right?  I’m counting on it because as one leaves the nest, I may be a puddle of goo by the time all this is said and done.
