Monday Musings

Wow it's already Monday again.  Seriously someone tell me, why do the weekends seem to go by so fast.

My weekend was filled with lots of the unexpected.  As I previously mentioned my man had to go home to visit family.  So my mother decided to come over to visit me.  And what a nice day it was.

We went to lunch at one of our favorite places....Olive Garden.  We normally just get the soup/salad combination which makes for a delicious lunch.  Although this time we decided to add the new chicken, garlic, roasted pepper flat bread as an appetizer. We were surprised as it was delicious.

We usually have fun when we spend time together. I like that we share the same sense of humor, so we can find good laughs in just about anything.  Things that most people just won't find funny.  And whenever her and I get together some kind of adventure always seems to ensue.  We did a little shopping at Target well more like browsing.  And then stopped by the bookstore to pick up some books for my little niece.

When she went home I felt rather down because the day had been so much fun, and I wasn't looking forward to spending the night alone.  I'm not too fond of staying here alone at night without the man.  We have a first floor so leaving windows open while I sleep always makes me rather nervous. 

Anyway, he returned Sunday and we were all excited to see each other.  Spend the day watching golf and basically just cuddling.  But you know we all need those kinds of days.  Cuddling is a good activity.  Not always easy to convince some to do but none the less it usually makes all parties feel good.

As for today....well I had a job interview.  And it was one of those jobs I could really see myself liking. But I don't even want to discuss it because I'm afraid to talk about things I really want.  Does anyone else ever feel that way?   Like you would rather not discuss something or mention it until it comes to fruition?

I will say one of the hardest jobs questions is the "so tell me about yourself" just because it feels so open ended.  And also the "where do you see yourself in five years or what would you like to be doing in five years".

So for now I simply just need to chill out for a little.

I've decided to make a conscious effort to meditate each day.  Even if it is just 10 minutes.  In fact I'm going to try to incorporate prayer into that moment as well.  That is if I can manage to tune out the loud lady above. haha  I have some meditation, relaxing music that I will play to try to muffle the background noises.  Usually light a candle and imagine I'm on the beach.

Has anyone ever tried meditation?  What did you think?

Enjoy your Monday and don't work too hard!
