Monday, Monday

I KNOW that I'm not the only one that was dreading work today.
 
{stay at home moms, I have never been so jealous}
 
We were up until midnight last night because we were pretending that we were 19 this past week.  You know, drinking till 1am & sleeping till 10.  It's hard to get back on schedule, go to bed early and sleep well when you're out of practice.
 
Add that to the fact that my Monday school is ridiculously boring and you've got one slooooooooooow moving Monday.  I could test an IQ today (and should), but I know teachers will only get pissy if I monopolize the children on the first day back. 
 
Other painful Monday tidbits--
 
- I'm loosely following the Mayo Clinic diet starting now (I say loosely because I suck at diets and diets confuse the hell out of me.  One says to rely on 100 cal packs, one says to eat naturally, one says to eat pasta, one says don't.  I can't keep this crap straight. I honestly can barely follow one for one day, let alone two weeks so we shall see).  Anyways, Mayo clinic says that I can't snack on anything besides fruit or veggies for two weeks.  But, wouldn't you know that there is GIANT bowl filled with twix, butterfingers, and other assorted candy in the office?!?!? Dagger. I've managed to stay away so far, but it is only 10:30 and I tend to eat when I'm bored (which I SO am). 
 
- I usually love my step class on Monday nights but I'm NOT looking forward to the January gym rush.  I may have to arrive 15 minutes early to claim a 3 foot space.  Dagger. I enjoyed getting there with 30 seconds to spare for the last 11 months.
 
- The bachelor is back on.  This is ideal- except the bachelor is Brad Womack.  Holy disappointing.  I was hoping for some man candy and we get this wannabe has-been cowboy.  Of course I'm going to watch, but he's not my ideal choice for bachelor.
 
So yeah, happy Monday to you too.
 
Any snow in the forecast?

I'm curious to see how the bachelorettes treat Brad throughout the season. I'll be watching!

no snow here thankfully!!
it's hard to get back into the swing of things after not having a curfew or deadline to meet even for 3 days.
I hope you have a better Monday =)
And you will feel LOTS better after your Step Class -- I just know it!

I CAN"T wait for the bachelor! Didn't really like Brad either- but I love the show. It is so bad it's good.

I'm at work. And not happy about it.

I'm with you on the acting like I'm 19 again. The Boy commented, "Gosh.. I can't remember the last time I drank like 7 nights in a row!" Yes.. I drank every night for a week. I'm that cool. And going to bed waaaaay past my bedtime every night. I forgot what an alarm sounded like this morning!

Cannot wait for The Bachelor. I'm with Baby Mama-- it's so bad it's good. Plus, rumor has it they totally picked some ca-razy ladies this season. YESSSS! Bring on the dramz.

I feel the same...Monday blahs. I actually have to put forth a full effort this week because everyone is back in the office and there are THINGS to do.

I kinda wish I had cable so I could see this has-been cowboy...one of my "I think this is the type for me, but I know you're really are not what my mamawould want me to date" guys.

I wasn't ready to go back today either! Luckily there were no kids, but I'm never ready to go back. I was actually thinking about when we might have a snow day too!
