Oh Monday, on a Tuesday

Two weeks of Christmas vacation have flown by and this is the week to get back on schedule.  However, my little human alarm clock didn't awake at 7:00 this morning or yesterday morning. She let us all sleep in until 8:00 putting us an hour behind.  What a way to start our school days back up!  I guess I'm going to have to set my alarm clock. I have a real dislike for that piece of electronics.  I'm not sure, why except that is blares me awake out of deep, peaceful sleep and forces me to rise from my warm cocoon!

Even though the calendar says it is Tuesday, today at our home it feels like a repeated Monday.  Mondays can be so cantankerous!

I relish breaks from the normal school days.  I always look forward to the freedom they provide, but when its time to get back into our routine...it can be a real pain.  All of a sudden, I find myself having to remind everyone how this momma runs things.  My goodness that can be real annoying, especially since our routine has pretty much been the same for the last eight years!

I am hoping as the day progresses it will feel more like a Tuesday.  That each and everyone of us will remember how our days of school and our home in general, operate. Otherwise I'm going to have to replace my nice, easygoing mommy hat with my drill Sergeant hat. And believe me nobody wants that!

On a bright note I did capture this picture of Lauren and Caleb working on school.  Lauren dressed in her pink bunny suit hard at work on her latest creation and Caleb not so busy on his journal, getting distracted by one of his brothers.  A great snap shot of what the last two "Mondays" have been like.


Here's hoping tomorrow feels like Wednesday not Monday, because I'm not sure I can deal with another Monday so soon!


  1. It can be so hard to get back into the routine when we've experienced fun and lazy holidays!
    I'm sorry you've had two mondays in a row; that's tough. Hope today is a rewarding day!

  2. I hear you, girl. Our routine starts back next week. It's fun while it lasts. ;)

  3. It looks like a perfect Monday to me. Sometimes it's just a little hard to 'hop' right into that routine.

    Have a wonderfully bless day!

  4. Jenn, It will get better! I know it is hard to get back in the routine. I love the pic. Hope you have a great evening. Blessings, Faye

  5. I meant to say when I left a comment on your other blog, that I loved the picture of Lauren. The bunny costume is so adorable! My boys have been distracting eachother today as well...very typical!

  6. Oh the joys of boys and their brothers! :) How wonderful that we have been chosen to Mother them...we were hand-picked for the job! Enjoy your second Monday and hopefully tomorrow will be Wednesday for you!


  7. Mondays are always hard for me too, especially after a long break from work! Hope today was better!

  8. I am so glad I'm not the only one w/ a child who does school dressed in "interesting" garb. Currently, she's all about pajamas..often it's a tutu! Love those ears! lol
