I like Mondays as it’s the start of the new week and there’s much optimism in a new week’s adventures. I know typically people feel like they are sludging through Monday mornings, but not me. Maybe it’s just my personality, but to me, it’s a new beginning, like the start of school in September!
But this week can be particularly stressful since Thanksgiving is on Thursday. All of the last minute preparations for the big feast can wear on those who are hosting the event for family. Let’s face it, that all-encompassing dinner is a lot to prepare, even for the most seasoned cooks. Sometimes the stress of being with family is hard too. Lucky for me, I’m not hostessing this year, so I’m a bit more relaxed. For those of you who are, well, I’m sending you lots of strength, patience and a delicious meal and well-behaved guests!
This week kicks off the holiday season with Thanksgiving, then Black Friday shopping and the Christmas season coming up. I find it to be invigorating myself, but maybe I’m an anomaly. How are you feeling?
I hope you have a lovely week and that today brings a skip in your step and not the dragging of feet. Keep shining your heartlights and I’ll send you mine!
You sound like me…My big task this week is yo get my blond “on” (and the gray off) for the holiday season.
Good girl! Always feels better when we do that! Puts a spring into my step for sure! 🙂
Up Up UP!
Yes! Yes! Yes!
I am having the most relaxed holiday ever this year. Thanksgiving is pizza and beer. Just my kids and me. I don’t have the energy anymore for the big to do. We can be grateful with any kind of food enjoying a peaceful day together. I’m all about simplicity these days.
Oh I love that idea Marlene! Who says Thanksgiving has to be more than friends and family getting together to share a meal and gratitude?! I hope you have the loveliest day! xo
