There is really no reason to be curled up under a blanket with a hot cup of tea, but that is where I'll find myself for a good remainder of the afternoon. The weather isn't brutal, it honestly seems to be quite the nice day outside, but a good portion of me is craving to just be curled up amidst a brutally frigid winter day and I have allowed myself to pretend that this Monday is just that. I have created my list of things to do and am about 3/4 of the way to checking them all off. Once this is completed I will be plopped in my favorite room of the house, curled up, allowing Monday to win, this time. I do believe that allowing myself to do this will result in a flood of phone calls to work for all of those poor-souls who come down with some sort of illness allowing me to be a working woman for a day, or two, or three, later this week. I may break out and pick up the purse I had the lovely salesman at TJMaxx place behind the counter for me, so I guess maybe Monday hasn't quite gotten the best of me yet.
