Monday Motivation

by - May 09, 2022

Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. Ours was very low key. In fact, we didn't do anything. I actually didn't want to, especially after having a sick migraine on Friday. If you've ever had one, then you know it takes a day or two to fully recover.

Anyway, did you guys watch the Kentucky Derby? What an upset! Rich Strike wasn't even supposed to be in the race;  he was only there because another horse had to scratch. If you didn't watch, you should look it up. It was incredible.

Last week was pretty laid back. I got a good bit done for the upcoming June issue, but my May magazines weren't delivered until Friday, the day I was sick, so I'll be rushing through distribution today and tomorrow. Hopefully that won't throw the rest of my month off too badly. That's the last thing I need, especially considering how the past two months have gone.

The highlight of the week was the fundraising event I went to for our local art museum. I haven't gotten dressed up like this since college, so that was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, the friend I was supposed to go with had to cancel last minute, but Alexis was more than happy to be my back-up date. We didn't stay too long because it wasn't really suited to her age (and I was out of my comfort zone since I didn't know anyone there outside of work acquaintances, so even then not well), but I didn't want to waste the tickets or this dress. Plus, she had fun looking at all the art, drinking all the punch, and doing the craft they had on site.

This week is shaping up to be super busy work-wise, especially with distribution being unexpectedly shifted. Outside of that, we don't have anything planned until the weekend. Alexis is having a gymnastics show to demonstrate the skills she's learned over the last year or so.

Then next week begins the official countdown to the end of the school year. I'm ready for it to end, if I'm being honest, if only to not have to set my alarm for so early every morning. Although, with all the art camps and classes we've signed Alexis up for, summer is looking just as busy as the school year.

Okay, I've gotta wrap this up. These magazines aren't going to distribute themselves, unfortunately. I hope you all have a great week!
