And here it is. Another Monday. Hard to believe another week’s gone by. Time seems to be flying doesn’t it? I had the pleasure of a three day weekend. Having Mondays off is strange. Mostly because it always feels like Sundays. But then Sundays feels like Saturdays, which makes Saturdays feel weird. HA HA.
I will say, however, that it would be great if every Monday started my week off the way this one did. Despite the odd weather, I was out of the house most of the day, which made my plan to tidy up and get my self straightened out difficult. I don’t regret a minute of it though.
For starters, I went out to Ikea this morning to have breakfast with my family. My adopted mother, sisters, and brother, (who took me in about 3 years ago when my real family moved away), are some of my very favorite people in the world. We actually are so close at this point that people have mistaken the dad of the family for my dad (which always cracks us all up!). We always have a million fun stories to tell and we laugh for hours. That in itself made getting up early worth it. But then, we decided to hit up the movies. Nothing like a Monday matinee to take the windy day blues away.
Finally saw Iron Man. I’ll admit, I loved it. I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. I’ve never been a huge Robert Downey Jr. fan, but he won me over with his slick wit. And the chemistry between him and Paltrow was surprisingly electric. Her character, though cooky, was so much fun to watch. If you’ve been on the fence about checking it out, do so! You’ll be pleasantly surprised. But, be sure to stay til after the credits roll. 😉 They threw in a 20 second surprise.
While the day is drawing to an end (already? no!), I’m doing what I promised myself I would. Putting away laundry, cleaning the bathroom, sweeping and mopping the kitchen. The stuff I tend to neglect during the week because of work and writing. And since I was away most of the weekend with the hubby at the grandmother’s abode, I’ve decided I gotta get it done before my official workweek begins bright and early tomorrow at 7am!
In writing news, I am past the climax in the contemporary sci-fi short story/novella I’m re-writing. I haven’t decided what I’m going to do with it just yet, but I have a little plan up my sleeve. We’ll see what happens when I’m finished. I also have to get back to my futuristic/scifi romance. I’ve been very neglectful of it. I have like 6 chapters worth of edit to transpose to the computer document, a few scenes to rewrite/add in, and the rest of it to finish. I stopped smack dab in the middle of the climax. What can I say? I have performance anxiety. LOL
Hope you’ve all had a great weekend and a stupendous Monday.
