Monday Funday

Started off Monday morning like a speeding bullet!  5:30am crossfit workout, cooked (yes, no cereal today) breakfast for the kids, made some fantastic coffee, dressed for the office, zipped the suitcase, packed the laptop and then…..received the notification on my Delta app that my flight was so delayed that there was no way to make my connection.  So I changed to jeans, made more coffee, unpacked the laptop and commenced to work the first half of the day in my home office before heading to the airport for a later flight.


Not complaining (even though I had an additional delay in Atlanta) because I’ve learned to make the best of travel whenever possible.  First of all, there are worse things than being delayed at home.  Also, I was upgraded to first class for my entire trip, had a long enough layover to eat a decent meal in Atlanta (international terminal has better food) at Ecco in Concourse E.


Squeezed in a little more exercise by walking between terminals instead of taking the train.


And killed time in the Delta Sky lounge; wifi, wine, and clean restrooms – what else could a girl ask for while spending time in the world’s business aiport?! But why are there lounge chairs in the bathroom?!


Finally arrived at my hotel to discover I’d been upgraded to a newly renovated suite.  So as I said, no complaining.

Mommy Brain

Happy Monday!  I kicked off the week in super-productive mode.  I was up at 5am for a kick butt CrossFit workout, came home and made breakfast for the kids, dropped them at the bus stop, showered and deep conditioned my hair, had breakfast and was ready to sit down at my laptop at the normal time I begin my workday when I received a text.  It contained a picture of my son receiving his honor roll award.

Noooo!!!! Mommy of the Year forgot!  Dang it!  Given the fact that I travel A LOT for work, it is really important for me to attend the kids' events when I am home.  So needless to say, I feel like someone took a gigantic pin and popped my balloon of productivity.  My perfect day is now clouded with a bit of Mommy Guilt because I know my son is not going to be happy with me.  Bring on the Menchie's bribery!!!

Anyway, hope your week is off to a great start.  Happy Monday!
