It’s amazing how Mondays just have this “personality,” if you will…
Some weeks they aren’t so bad; some weeks they strike with a vengeance. I think today is the latter of those two options. I spent much of the weekend working. I’m a little behind on a couple deadlines and I really need to not only catch up – bet get ahead on some work. That’s because – I haven’t mentioned it here – but Chris and I are going out of town for a long 4th of July weekend! We’re going to be heading north to Utah
We’ve known for awhile and I’ve had kind of mixed feelings about it (family drama, and what not), but I’m actually starting to really look forward to it.
1. For one thing, Chris will be meeting all of my cousins, aunts, and uncles on my Dad’s side that he has never met before, despite us having been together for almost a decade now!!! We’re going to have a big family BBQ and get-together on Monday, the 4th of July.
2. And for another, I can NOT WAIT to get out of this weather we’re having in southern Arizona! It’s been over 110 F every day for weeks now. It’s brutal! My Grandma tells me there’s still snow in the mountains and ski lodges are planning to stay open through August! CRAZY!
3. Also, Chris has never been to Utah before and it is really gorgeous! I’m going to take him up to the mountains to see the snow, and to Park City to visit the cute shops. And maybe to the big, outdoor Gateway Mall.
4. And we’ve also got tickets to go to this big Fourth of July celebration thing on Saturday called Freedom Festival, which culminates with a concert by Brad Paisley and fireworks! Did I mention that fireworks are banned this year in Tucson due to the draught? Yeah, I’m pretty excited to be getting outta here for the 4th.
But that means I’ve got a LOT to get done – both for work & for preparation for the trip!
So that’s where I am. Hello, Monday – please be good to me!!!
How do you feel about Mondays?
How was your weekend?
