Music Mondays

Monday.
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.

  1. Your play list is so fun, who knew there were so many Monday songs. The last part of my Monday was much better than the first, I think my students "got" hot to work with variables - yeah! Your Monday sounds lovely. Enjoyed reading it.

  2. Your positive spin is admirable. I limped through this day and haven't yet figured out how to plan for tomorrow...thanks for the tips. Loved it.

  3. I had the Monday blues today...no special reason...but now wondering if watching my last Downton Abbey was part of it.

  5. What a good idea! We had an teacher institute today, so tomorrow will be like a Monday with my students. I may need a calming playlist.
