Ah, Monday. You are not my favorite day. I love my job and it's still hard to get revved up for Mondays. Especially when I'm still mourning the loss of my Downton. Especially when the clouds are gray and the winds are strong. Especially with spring break a week out.
The Facebook message from my lovely assistant letting me know she'd be out sick today didn't help either, I'm afraid.
It was a decent day for a Monday. Good, even. I got to read aloud to 2 of my senior classes (by special request of some of the seniors which made it even more fun!) and daughter-the-eldest packed my lunch for me (my favorite Amy's tomato bisque soup with some sharp cheddar and ritz to the side) and I had some lovely bookish conversations.
The pace, however, was manic.
Music helps. I've created a Monday playlist on my Spotify. All the songs mention Monday in them, just for kicks. I'll add more to it as I can, but for now, feel free to enjoy about an hour of Monday Music and tell me what you think.
