Monday Blues

Mondays are usually pretty rough, but the Monday after a long holiday weekend?  Fuhggedaboudit! Thanksgiving was SO amazing this year, as you can see from the quick picture I was able to snap on Instagram.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE la mia famiglia.  (Yeah, I’m not sure why I think I’m on The Sopranos right about now either, but it’s kind of fun so I’m going to run with it.)  I was also able to catch up with lots of friends, many of whom I hadn’t seen in about ten years (!!!), at an annual Friendsgiving my brother-from-another-mother hosts.  Then, my boyfriend and I met up with our couple friends to do a triple-date cooking class entitled “Whiskey a go-go.”  Yes, the title says it all.

Needless to say, I am particularly dreading this Monday – so much so that I chose an outfit to reflect my impending Monday Blues today.  The following also perfectly illustrates why I can never get any work done when a certain little man is around.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend as well, and can commiserate with my Monday Blues.


First, it starts with this.  DRAPER: MOMMY’S HOME!!! TIME TO PLAY!


Spending quality time with Draper before trying to get some work done


ME: Let’s try to take some pictures before the sun goes down!



DRAPER: But MAAAAAAAM!!!! I want to play!  Look, I found this cool stick we can play with!  I’ve been waiting for you alllll day ::sad puppy eyes::


ME: Awwwwww, you’re the cutest, Draper!  I love you so much.  Okay, I’ll come play with you.  I can work on this some other time.


La fin. (Or “la conclusione” for you Italian speakers.)
