Five Steps to Reboot Monday

5 ways to reboot a bad day

Here it is, the Monday after Easter and it’s anything but a normal day, but instead I need a reboot.

I had expected today to be a Monday – filled with menu plans and calendar catchup and laundry. I had expected to waive goodbye to my kids and husband and then dig in to a productive day.  Nope.

Today is tax day (aka Procrastination Day).

I find myself once again putting my entire life on hold while I make a mad scramble to finish our taxes before car line today.  I wrote about it last year. [Read more...]

Green peas and lamb

If Dr Seuss had ever tried to feed peas to my son, his famous book might have gone a little more like this….

(If you don’t recall my son’s long term aversion to peas, you might want to check out how Mr Picky got his name.

And yes, I’m calling this egg-themed.  I’m not done celebrating the egg just yet!)
