Monday Motivation

by - February 22, 2021

Happy Monday, friends! The sun has finally come back out, and it looks like we'll have about a week's worth of mostly sunny days. I am here for it. I don't think my mood could have taken another gray and dreary week.

We broke out the grill yesterday and built a fire in the backyard. Nothing fancy but it was nice to spend time outside.

We've been doing a bit of spring cleaning around the house. You can definitely tell we've been spending more time at home the past year. We've accumulated a lot of junk piles, and underneath those are entire colonies of dust bunnies. I don't profess to be an amazing housekeeper, but I can't believe the state of messiness we've found ourselves in. I'd really like to have a maid service come in every other week, but I'm not sure if now is the time to invest in that...although I feel like the benefits for my anxiety and mental load would be well worth it in the long run.

In other news, Alexis is getting close to losing her first teeth. Nearly all of her friends have lost at least one tooth already so she's excited, especially about the tooth fairy. I'm not as excited about that part. Have you seen how much parents are giving for teeth these days?! Thankfully, Alexis has based her ideas of the tooth fairy off Rise of the Guardians, so she expects a gold coin.

This week is looking pretty tame for me, comparatively speaking. I've got a few editorial things to finish up and some web stuff to do, but otherwise I'm basically finished with the March issue. I haven't been able to focus on my personal writing as much this month, so I hope I'll be able to devote a little more time to that next week - without sacrificing sleep.

That's pretty much all that's going on around here lately. I hope everyone has a fabulous week!
