I can’t seem to wake up today and I have just come to the conclusion that no amount of coffee is going to fix that. Is my body just keenly aware that it’s Monday? “Hello! Wake up, would ya? I want to be productive today!” I tell myself, but to no avail. I can’t even open my eyes completely. I did run three miles in hopes that would shake my body awake and it only succeeded in making me even more tired, so that backfired.

The dogs were also so wiped out from our weekend away that I had to make them go for a quick walk around lunchtime and they’ve barely moved since. We had a really wonderful, but very exhausting, weekend so perhaps I’m recovering just as much as they are.

The gray clouds are currently hovering over our house, threatening to unleash their water stores and we’re in for a few very wet and rainy days, or so I hear. I would say that I am over it, but our driveway is covered in a carpet of pollen and the birds have been using it (and our car) as target practice, so in that respect I welcome the rain. I hope it’ll help me to hunker down and get things done. Like cleaning our poor, neglected house and crossing more items off of my to-do list.

It’s Monday and I will share all about my weekend later, but for now it’s time to go be productive and maybe pour myself another cup of coffee.
