Monday Morning...Once Again.

Mondays seem to roll around a bit faster than any other day.

Must be because it's the most dreaded day of the week.

But I can't think like that. It's a new day. And something wonderful will happen today.

If not for me, then for you.

And that is something we have to believe.

I've taken a vacation... my second of the year.

I also found it necessary to take a vacation from the House of LadyLee.

I am in no ways tired of blogging. I really like my blog, you know. I just needed to get a little time freed up to reevaluate my priorites and needs at the moment. My mind has been in limbo, while my world continues to move forward, and move forward a bit to fast.

Priorities have been reevaluated, reset. I have given myself some time to step into new routines, and doing things that I have let slip ever so slightly. Things that are better for my heart and spirit.

And I am all the better for it.

Blogging fits in there somewhere. Not a hundred percent where "somewhere" is, but it has it's place. More conducive to my creativity than anything...

My weekend. I had a decent weekend. Got home from Mexico on Thursday afternoon. (It is HELLACIOUS getting back into the country through the ATL airport.) So as a result I had a three day weekend.

Friday, I slept in. Then that afternoon, I hung out with Nikki's Mom, helping her sort some of her things out. I myself was on yarn duty, and Nikki had a LOT of yarn. So we spent several hours sorting, unraveling, and rolling yarn. I had a lot of fun, and it felt good to laugh and joke with Nikki's fam.

And I hadn't cried much that week, so this was really good to go over and not be beside myself.

Saturday, I didn't do much of anything. I unpacked, and lazied around the house. It was sunny that morning, so I slept in. But I decided to make a dash to the eastside to do some grocery shopping, and on my way home, at around 3:30 in the afternoon, the bottom fell out the sky.

I never seent so much rain in my life. I thought I missed all that when I was in Mexico, because the ATL westside surburbs flooded something terrible. But the Saturday rain was the last "hoo-rah", I suppose, and let's just say, it took me about 45 minutes to drive 15-20 miles home. We got about 4 inches of rain.

But I made it home safely, and that's all that matters.

Sunday was quiet as well. I did A LOT of housecleaning. This was good, but in a way it wasn't because I've been dealing with a stomach bug since Friday, and I aggravated all of that, so much so that I didn't make my Sunday finance meeting.

Let's just say it was best for me to stick around the house, lol.

So here we are, back at Monday morning. I am a little remiss about going back to work today... It will be full of complaints, full of slights that are thrown to make me feel guilty about taking time off.

I will never apologize for needing some "me" time.

My job is not the bane of my existence.

I am not my job.

My job is not my source. God is my source.

Thank goodness for that.

I did much praying this morning, just so I can stand in the face of all that, and not let it get me down.

Because, you know, I will be taking more vacations. More time off, you see.

I will be doing that on purpose.

This vacation opened me up to a whole new world...

I ain't never been nowhere before where, when you step out of your travel van...

There's a dude standing there...

...with a glass of chilled champagne, and a cold wet towel for my face.

They don't do that type of thang at the Motel 6, shorty...

I guess that's what 4 and 5 star is all about, hunh?

Stay tuned for vacay pics this week...

And in the meantime, have a good week... on purpose.
