Why I Like Mondays

Fresh starts.
A schedule to keep.
A chance to be productive for others.
A bit of solitude.
Morning coffee with Mutti.
The start of five days of potential.
Smaller lines at stores.
Meal planning.
Marking To-Do’s off the list.
Running errands.
Music to drive by.
Time to write.
Visiting my personal Barista and writing partner at her work.
The promise of something new.

And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!


I have no post for Sunday because Saturday was spent getting my daughter ready for Prom!

Actually, she got herself ready. She’s very good with a make-up brush and curling iron. So I just entertained my Mom as we waited for the end result. Then I drove her over to her friend’s house for photos, and then they left for the Prom.

They had to check in an hour before the buses left, for security checks. Then they rode down to L.A. to an Arts Center for dinner and dancing! It will be a two-hour ride back in the middle of the night. Once they reach the school, a group of them will be going to the local All-Night Denny’s for a (very) early breakfast.

I’m so excited for her. She attends a small school where there are no Proms. So when her best friend asked her to go to his, it was a no-brainer. What a great experience they’re having! She knows some of his classmates, too.

They’ve been best friends since junior high, when he accidentally knocked her head into a locker. The next day, he was overly apologetic and from that incident, they became instantly inseparable.

They both graduate this year… in just a few weeks! I’m glad they’re able to have tonight before life might start taking them in different directions.

They have far too much fun together, as you can see from the photos.

I can’t wait to hear all about it. That is, after she wakes up tomorrow afternoon.
