I (No Longer) Hate Mondays

I've been in the "working world" for about 13 years. I finished school early and went right into working FULL-TIME, at age 16. For the last 10, I've worked in the corporate world.
But, now all of that has changed. Thanks to my recent lay-off (yes, I said "thanks" because they really did do me a favor); I can now stay home with my daughter, use my time to explore other options and also, relax. A lot. I am very, very grateful.

Today has been a great Monday. Waking up on your own, and not to a blaring alarm, is priceless. Getting to spend an hour or two in your cozy jammies and drink coffee while watching cartoons while everyone else is at their desk? Even better. All whilst hugging my little 2 year old munchkin over and over and knowing, I don't have to leave her for 9 hours a day.

This afternoon, I enjoyed a delicious chicken panini and watched a Rita Hayworth flick on Turner Classic Movies I'd never seen before, "Miss Sadie Thompson (1953)." What a heavenly way to spend a crisp, fall day inside!

I am definitely planning on using this time (however long it lasts) to my best and full advantage. I have so many ideas &, stay tuned :) I hope everyone is having a nice day - less than one week til Halloween! I'll be sure to post some pics of Berlyn in her costume!

I'm so jealous! I have that life in the summer (since I am a teacher), but have such a hard time getting up in the morning throughout the school year! The time you have with your daughter is priceless. Enjoy it! Kori xoxo
