Monday, Monday....

Normally people don't like to think about Mondays (as I didn't when I worked in the real world)....getting back to work, school, obligations, appointments, counting down the minutes until the following Friday when you can block your work-world out for another two days.  I, on the other hand, appreciate Monday. It's usually a quiet time for me these days after a busy weekend like this past weekend, and I enjoy the peace and quiet to catch up with routines and go over the great memories that were created the previous two days (usually with the grandkids)...or, to just sit and relax.

As I said in my last post, I went on a shopping trip to Toronto. We all had a wonderful time...lots of shopping til we dropped, lots of good food (that we didn't have to cook, which always tastes better) and lots of laughs that make me smile today as I think of the reasons for those laughs :)

We were also lucky enough to get my middle son to meet us for lunch on the way through his city.  More good laughs and good food :) It's always great to see him whenever I can! He'll be back to teaching in a couple weeks, so no doubt his Mondays won't be something he looks forward to either LOL!

However, there's nothing better (said while apologizing to hubby) than being greeted as you get out of the car with grandkids running towards you at full speed with dancing eyes, ear to ear smiles on their faces, jumping into your arms with hugs, kisses and giggles, and asking if you are going to stay for a while. All at the same time asking if you can watch, as they run for their bikes to show you they can now ride without training wheels!  Wow, did that happen in just two days?  As I said, there's nothing better :)

In fact, maybe I should go away more often so I can enjoy those welcomes when I get home LOL!
