Somewhere there is an unwritten rule that Mondays should suck. 

I am having what amounts to being a typical (for me) Monday. 

It started out, for me, with a lazy lazy Sunday, and as we all know the lazy Sunday is the undoing of the civilized world.  I usually use my Sundays to prepare for the upcoming week — getting all the laundry finished up, figuring up how many lunches I need to pack, assembling the necessary components to my laptop bag, setting everything by the door…

Not really.  I just sort of half-ass do things on Sundays. 

Which is why a lot of Monday mornings at my house resemble a Keystone Cops skit. 

Spawn and I both got up this morning with an upset stomach.  I think it was the fish we had the night before.  So neither one of us was moving very quickly this morning, and there was the added issue of What To Wear, since this is National Catholic Schools week and the kids don’t have to wear their uniforms to school this week. 

So yeah.  We were late this morning. 

I got to work before I realized that I had forgotten about half of what I had intended to bring with me.  I mean, I have my laptop and my purse, so all is not lost.  But it would have been nice if I had remembered to bring my grocery list, rather than have to try and reconstruct it from memory. 

Right now I feel as if I have one foot in one world and one foot in the other.  I am not fully present today.
