Monday Musings

Honestly I think I say this every Monday, but where do the weekends go? 

This Monday I just want more time snuggling on the couch with the man and little one.  It seems like such a simply desire but before I know it the weekend is over and it's back to the daily grind. 

And as I get older I just cannot help but wonder about time.  There are those moments, when say sitting at work with the feeling of continually looking at the clock wondering why it's not moving faster or wondering when one will be free to go home.  Then there are those moments, when with those we love or doing something we love, spent wondering if we could simply freeze time and slow it down a little to savor those moments.

Its true the good moments make us want to slow down time, the not so good moments make us want to speed up time.  And weekends, well they never seem long enough.  

Saturday and Sunday both filled with moments of fun, play and love....the kind you just want to freeze and savor.  We got to enjoy family and play time with the niece, good food, snuggling and focus on what really matters the most.  With all the Oscar hype we even decided to rent an Oscar nominated movie instead of watching the whole award show.  It was the kind of weekend that make Mondays feel rather barren.  

 But so be it, it is Monday and we can dwell on missing the weekend or we can focus on what we can do to make it feel like the weekend everyday.  I mean there must be a way right?

Started off Monday by trying to be productive.  Participated in a blog hop as there are so many interesting blogs out there but finding them isn't always easy so it's a great concept and yes the link is provided on the sidebar, cleaned up the house, scheduled all those dentist/doctor appointments I have been putting off and working on a list of other things as well. 

Of course to make the everyday feel more like the weekend some play or down time must be included as well.  Wish the man worked a little closer so the little one and I could go visit at lunch or something.  Battling city traffic and then trying to find parking isn't exactly easy on a weekday in Philadelphia. And they don't allow dogs on the train here.  So need to think of ideas of how I can make the weekdays feel more like the weekends, aside from begging our corporate world to reduce work hours or give everyone three day weekends. ha

So what is a typical Monday like for you and what would make the weekdays feel more like the weekends in your life?
