Monday Maunin' Mumblings

I love Mondays! I know I'm in the minority. I guess that being in the ministry has given me that love. The weekends are not "off" times for us, they are work days.

Even when I have a regular job, I love Mondays. There is just something wonderful about beginning a new week. Having a clean slate and fresh start, is always refreshing.

Last week I got lots of things done that needed to be done. This week, I have another LONG list of things I need to do to finish up my house. I had no idea it would take this long to get things in order and fixed like I want. (I'll post pictures when I finish)

I still need to paint the ceiling in my kitchen. We removed the "box" light thing... then the ugly long exposed florescent lights and had caned lights installed. The ceiling is stained and discolored. Then, I think my kitchen is "finished" for now, anyway. In the future we will replace all the appliances and I may add some color.

Also, I need to paint the laundry room and closets. ... That should do it for a good while. We went with a very VERY neutral color (or no color really) It looks very nice and clean. It is funny because after living for so many years in a parsonage where I had white walls and said over and over, "when I get my OWN house, I'll have color on my walls!" Maybe it is this time in my life that I need calm and not so busy and simulating.

I have boxes and boxes (like 7) of pictures - and even some more in the attic. They all have special memories and meanings... like family portraits, some of my parent's pictures, some that I love that just don't "go"... I can take the family pictures out of the frames and maybe put in an album. But, what do I do with these really nice big pictures that don't match? The sad thing is that I need more things on my walls. I have to force myself NOT to buy pictures!

So, I've mumbled about nothing... just getting myself geared up to get stuff done and finish. Little Posey will be here soon and I MUST have my house in order so I can be free to enjoy her and my other grandchildren.

Hope you have a great Monday!

I like (most) Mondays, too! Although, today, I woke up with a headache :( So, you go get your house together and I'll go drink my Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi to try and nix the headache :)


When you are done you can come here and visit and help me...LOL. Enjoy those grands. Grandbabies are GRAND babies :-)

I do not like Mondays! It means I have to get up and go back to work! I know I should be thankful that I have a job to go to and that I lived to see another day, and I am. But, I really don't like Mondays. I guess if there was no such thing as Mondays, I wouldn't like Tuesdays! LOL
