Oh, Monday…

It’s been a stereotypical Monday that started out with sleeping through alarm clocks and a couple minor meltdowns, so I’ll be glad when it’s over.  We had a nice long weekend and a visit from my Dad and Stepmom, but sadly they went home yesterday. I think Enzo was disappointed that things were back to normal this morning and he did not want to go to preschool today.  He was upset when he couldn’t go see Miss Tammy (in the toddler room), and I’m sure not sleeping all that well didn’t help.

Hopefully by the time this afternoon rolls around, his day will have improved, and maybe tonight would be a good time to go to bed a little early… for everyone. Maybe it’s the weather making me want to hibernate.  It’s a crisp Fall day, the sun is shining, I can see a bald eagle flying out of my office window, and I really just want to snuggle up in a blanket with a good book and a hot cup of tea.  It’s feeling like a bit of an introspective day… maybe that is also just the time of year as we get closer and closer to 2014 coming to an end.

It’s only October, though, and really that’s plenty of time to still accomplish a few things and set some goals and get on track. I know for sure a few of the things I want to do, and now it’s up to me to make them happen.  Time to have a “nothing will stand in my way” attitude and to embrace the fear of the unknown.  All too often I just worry about everything, and I keep telling myself I need to acknowledge my worries, but also trust that things will be okay.  Even if they don’t actually work out, I have to at least try because you never know until you try, right?  It’s so easy to come up with excuses not to do things or to put something off, and eventually you either have to face the music, or you always wonder “what if.”

This post took a different turn than I meant for it to on a Monday morning.  Such is life, though. How about an unrelated picture of a baby?  I think I want to be more present and live in the moment… babies make it look so easy. 😉
