Mondays are exhausting

Today I played Go Fish! with a five year old and got trounced. Soundly.

Then I spent the afternoon trying to find a cheap, quality sewing machine. Totally not as easy as it sounds. I also grocery shopped.

AND actually made dinner. Except that it was breakfast. But it was muy tasty even if I do say so myself. Then math homework all around. And a lavender foot rub for an insomniac five year old. Then more homework (every Monday it is the same).

Oh! And I squeezed in a workout which probably only works off ten of the @#$ peanut M&Ms I ate today.

How was your Monday?

Much more boring than that! Although, I got to yell at a girl in our group who thinks she is apparently a rapper, and used the "N" word. Only in Utah.

Or, the other mondays go like this (2nd and 4th)
Pri Pres Meeting 9:30-11
Clinic 12 to 3
Pick up kids. Piano lessons. Homework, dinner, FHE.
and all the other stuff. As soon as 5th grader's teacher gets her stuff together I'll add in being in the classroom. Sigh. Mondays are my craziest day because they vary more than any other day of the week.

Monday? How many days ago was that? And with nothing to show for it here.

I changed beds over and over and washed many sets of sheets over and over and steam cleaned carpets and meanwhile cooked and ran to the grocery for sudden hankerings that might taste good and mixed and chopoped and stirred little dabs of things - some of which were eaten, some not.

And then came home to my own mess and no dinner for my own family unless you count butterscotch pudding one night and cantaloupe and pea pods with tomato-basil cream cheese (straight from container) as meals.

I know - WHINE, WHINE. It's not that this is hard to do, it's just hard for me. I've got to get some hustle somehow and breeze through and get on to the parts of life that energize. How do you do it?
