A New Week

by Meghann on October 25, 2010

Itโ€™s Monday everyone!

Time to put on real shoes, sit at a desk, and make small  talk with a couple dozen of your not-so-close-but-you-work-together-so-you-keep-it-friendly friends. At least thatโ€™s what Mondays are for me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I slept in a wee bit later than usual this morning and had a lovely session of morning yoga in my living room. Basically I did a few vinyasas with a couple of warriors thrown to give my body a stretch. I was really expecting my calves or quads to be killing me today because of all the hills I tackled this weekend, but they are surprisingly fine. Odd.

Breakfast was a lovely bowl of cereal.


  • 1/2 cup Kashi Puffs
  • 1/2 cup Quaker Oatmeal Squares
  • 1/4 cup Gingerbread Granola
  • 1 Pear
  • Vanilla Yogurt
  • Homemade Apple Butter
  • Chopped Dates


It was soooo dark when I was taking my photos this morning. Iโ€™m missing the extra long days of summer already. :/

Time to put on my big girls pants and head to work. Itโ€™s going to be a long day, but at least I have the memory of a great weekend to get me through it. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hear ya on the shorter days – it makes it so much more difficult to get going in the morning and doesn’t make it easy to take breakfast photos!!! Have a great day Meghann! ๐Ÿ˜€

I like how you put that – “make small talk with a couple dozen of your not-so-close-but-you-work-together-so-you-keep-it-friendly friends.” That describes most of my mornings. Although I used to make friends-friends at my jobs, and I have to say, that was a lot more fun. Less professional, but definitely more fun.

My Monday mornings are back to getting up early and doing the mommy game without any help. And grocery shopping. Today in the rain. Blah.

i miss working for that very reason, the people you get to know.

i grew up in south florida and moving from there to boston, how short the days were in december surprised me. i mean, the first time it got dark at 4pm and you still have to be at work for at least an hour… shocking!

I love 16 and Pregnant! Although, I’ve seen each episode about 12 times a piece. It wouldn’t stop me from watching it on a plane though!

And I totally get the coworker thing. Totally.

I hate the dark mornings. I swear it was dark when I got to work today and dark when I left. It made it feel like I spent a straight 24 hours there.

That’s what Mondays are for me too, except we’re not even allowed to talk in my office.

Yeah, it may be time to send out some resumes, lol!
