Oh Monday! I can’t tell if I loathe or heart you…
Amiright? Do you feel the same way every Monday morning?
Two thoughts always creep into my head:
- Should I put on my big girl pants, toss my hair into a bun, and put on some 90’s rap music and handle the lovely Monday? Or,
- Should I put on my biggest pair of sweatpants I own, jump back into bed, and hide under the abyss of covers, until my eyes escape the bright light that currently shines into my eyes through the bedroom window?
I always want to opt for #2, but with three kiddos that currently reside in the other two bedrooms of our home, it really isn’t an option. ;)

Oh-la-la! Look at that streusel topping on top of those muffins. ?? Reason #6: Streusel topping.
