Monday. Unlike the rest of the planet, I LOVE me some Monday.
Monday is MY day. Me, me, me all me.
Every other Monday I send my kids to spend the day with a lovely little grannie down the street, and I get down to business on making our lives a better place.
I clean, do laundry, often make soap, do errands, sometimes see a girlfriend for coffee. Yes, I could do this stuff while the kids are here, but it gets done oh so much faster, and I accomplish oh so much more when they are off having their own fun, instead of me getting angry at them for tramping on my clean kitchen floor or making a mess of (fill in the blank) while I clean around them.
They have fun, I make magic in our home, everybody wins.
And I do it (mostly) guilt free. Some days I feel bad that I need someone else to do half of my job (caring for the children) while I do the other half of it.
But when they come home on Monday nights to a Mama who has spent some time taking care of the home, AND taking care of herself (OH so important!) and everyone is happy, then I know it was worth while.
So I'm off to make Monday magic - hope you enjoy your day!
