Who doesn’t have a case of the Mondays?
In our house, it is one of the busiest days of the week. It starts with me getting up at the same time as JD, 5am, to do my workout, shower, and eat a solid breakfast, before waking up the kids. Mondays are the day that I work in the office, so Hazel is dropped off for preschool at 7am and Jennifer & Martin get dropped off for daycare at 7:30am. Then I’m straight work by 8am!
I normally have something that goes in the crockpot or is an easy dinner on Monday, but today, I forgot, and didn’t get home in time to put it in the crockpot, so, modify for the stovetop! (Santa Fe Chicken – sounds delish right?!)
What’s nice about when I do forget, or am running late, I don’t have to pick up Jennifer & Martin until 5:30pm, so I can pick up Hazel, bring her home, and spend some 1:1 time making dinner, doing chores, whatever needs to be done that day, and she feels super special! Even if it’s just colouring, chores, and cleaning up the yard.
Finally, after I pick up the kids, we start dinner and I’m out the door by 6:15pm to tutor.
It makes for a busy day, but it’s usually a good day!
