my Monday month...

I am a Monday lovin' Mom! Don't get me wrong, I love the weekends as well... but I'm just not crazy about the lack of routine that tends to go along with them. I much prefer the predictable flow of a school day. During the week, I may not always have the meal planning under control, or the grocery shopping done before school pickup (usually because I've spent a little too much time in my sewing room), but for me, that's still routine. It's kind of like the month of December vrs January. Once again, don't get me wrong... I love each and every thing about December. But by the end of the month, the lack of routine gets to be a little much for this Momma. Enter January... my Monday month. Back to school, back to bedtimes, back to green leafy vegetables. Bliss.

Anyone feel the same way?

I know...I'm torn. I love having hubby home (he's a schoolteacher) for Christmas break, but I, too, enjoy the routine that comes back with the school days.

YES! I too love having the kids home and not having to sit in car line etc but also miss the "me time" that I have as well as the routine when they are in school. Couldn't have said it better. Yay for Structure!
