Monday, Monday

Another week is here to kick-start those promises you made to yourself late on a Sunday evening! Perhaps you were bargaining with yourself as you witnessed the most epic ending to a televised awards ceremony in recent history?

Duke being a bad influence and making me hit the snooze button.

In the one hour I stayed up past my bedtime (yes, I am a bit of a Nanna when it comes to sleep), I told myself that by staying up it means I have to make my regular 5:30 a.m. workout class. Just because I wanted to be a part of the frantic social media blitz shouting their reactions to the Oscars Best Picture blunder DOESN’T mean I get to take a pass on sweating it out in the early morn. HA!

Cut to 4:45 a.m. when my alarm went off. Monday morning me wasn’t as committed or enthusiastic as social media blitzed me. Needless to say, I missed my class today.

The one thing I always neglect to remember when I hit the snooze button is how this decision has a chain reaction effect on the rest of my day. I slept longer, got out of the house later, missed my morning espresso, didn’t take Duke to play at my in-laws, was late to work, had to work through lunch etc., etc., etc.

I feel like that’s a lot of fallout due to witnessing the embarrassment of PWC giving Bonnie and Clyde the wrong envelope. No?

Worth it.

Bored

I’m bored. Yes, something I am sure my mother can still hear even from decades ago and half a world away.

Duke being bored too. We’re so in-sync!

After a few frantic weeks (more like months now I think about it), I’m searching for that illusive and sweet side-hustle. I’ve got some more time on my hands after finishing up a few projects and it struck me at 2 a.m. this morning that perhaps I should just start a writing project.

 

A friend of mine recently completed a project where she had to write/blog once a day for 100 days. While that would definitely help me scrub up on my keyboard skills, sometimes I just feel like there’s nothing happening worth putting into words.

Perhaps I need to start by just writing about things I’m loving at the moment. I feel like I have endless recommendations for podcasts and books right now. Stay tuned. Just need to finish up one book and the latest episode of Pod Save America.
