Since I have the good fortune to have a job that allows me to work 4 days a week, I was just treated to a 5 day weekend. That was nice. (It doesn't compare to the 12 day weekends that I was taking while I was on maternity leave, but all good things had to come to an end, and I dragged it out as long as I could.) Anyway, my regular extra day off is Monday. That makes Tuesday my Monday.
As first days of the week go, this one wasn't bad. My husband tempted me with the option of taking the day off, and still sending the little menace to daycare. But, I was strong and went to work anyway. While I was there, DH put the Christmas lights on the columns on our front porch. We were treated to a lovely sight when we got home.
So, even though it was a typical Monday at work (many things not going well), all in all, it was an easy start after a nice 5 day weekend. Let's hope the week and the month continues this way. It's so hard to accomplish anything in December anyway.
Happy anniversary to my two oldest sisters, who got married within 5 days of each other - just 10 years apart!
