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.
It’s the other kind of Monday.
The kind with two sick kids and husband who decided to work from home… just in case those man flu symptoms turn into something more serious. *sigh* And here’s me… still needing to do laundry and plan menus and clean the house.
It’s not even 9am and I already feel a need to pull up my big girl panties and reboot the entire week.
(Yes, I said WEEK. We got all dressed up for Easter Sunday. We got in the car. And THEN we realized that one child was too sick to attend services. We attended church via Livestream. The fancy Easter meal I had planned turned into chicken tacos.)
I know I’m not alone. I know a big part of motherhood consists of having our plans interrupted and adjusting our priorities (and attitudes) around whatever crisis has just happened. Sometimes, we all need a little reboot.
