Monday Freedom

The best thing I do during Dickens season is to take off each Monday. It's 3 days off work, but it's the most valuable time I have all year.

Today, I woke up and snuggled my cats and my sweetie. Then I got up and made more boiled chicken for Leeloo for breakfast. Then I drove to Piedmont for our annual day of relaxation with Elizabeth. After an hour in the tub, we were warm through and through for the first time in days. We followed that with lunch at Fenton's. Elizabeth had to get back to San Ramon to take Logan to the orthodontist. I called Grandma to check in on the way home. Back to San Jose, I checked in with Toyota. They had time to get me in for a quick service. While there I caught up on email. Then I popped into Petsmart and got some Sensitive Stomach dry food for Leeloo and Greenies for Pixel. Then I popped into Trader Joe's for some more chicken for Leeloo. Home again, I made turkey soup from leftovers while chatting with my mom. It is the most amazing turkey soup ever. Yum. Yum. Yum.

I'm doing laundry now while the dishwasher runs and the cats sit curled up next to me. I got so much done, and I feel refreshed and ready to face the week. (And I've still got over 300 hours of vacation on the books.)


  • I know what you mean. Mondays are essential. I have 5 weeks off a year right now, which allows me to do that. I lay around for the morning, but then got the place somewhat clean, paid bills and did shopping in the afternoon before going to Ceili
