Monday

I have a love and hate relationship with Monday.

On one hand, everyone is tired and sluggish after a busy Sunday and being up late with church on Sunday night.  No one wants to get out of bed.  When they finally get up, it seems to take forever for the kids to get ready for the day and do their chores.  On the other hand, I like to realize that we are worn out from a day well spent with the Lord.

On one hand, it drives me nuts that everything is a mess and the house is not in top form because we have neglected everything all weekend for play and worship.  We come and go on Sunday leaving things where they may fall.  We don't do chores unless absolutely necessary, so the trash cans may be near overflowing, the floors are in need of a vacuum and sweep and the laundry is always spilling out of the hampers.  Then Monday morning, we must face the music.  But on the other hand, I love spending extra time moving about the house putting things in order.  Looking around after a round of chores and tidying is so rewarding!

On one hand, I am sad at the end of another laid back weekend with the family.  But, on the other hand, I love looking forward to a week with a clean slate full of promise and days ahead to get back to the routine of everyday life and home school.

On one hand, I dread knowing that I have class and will be away from the family on Monday night.  There is nothing I enjoy more than a quiet evening at home with the whole family in attendance.  On the other hand, I look forward to getting to FBI and visiting with my classmates, hearing the word of God, and digging into my studies... and a date with my sweetheart, of course.

What about you?  Do you love or hate Mondays?

PS... Please let me know if you stopped by to Live Stream Worship. Tell me what you thought.  If you would like me to make it a regular post on this blog or if you think there is something else that would be a more beneficial Sunday feature.
