far and few between

I took the day off on Monday.

Days like that are far and few between.

Dave had to work so Polo and I had the house all to ourselves.

{dance around the coffee table to jingle bell rock}

I work long days. Looonngg days. And my commute adds to that.
I wake at 5am and catch the train at 6:45am.
I get to work at 8:02am.
I walk 3 blocks to work and then get to my office at about 8:15am.
I work all day and leave the office [on most days] by 4:45pm to catch the 4:55pm train. 
I hightail it down the hill 3 blocks and run up lots of flights of stairs.
[you would think I would be used to the stairs by now; nope.]
I hop on the train at 4:55pm [if it is on time] and get to the train station near home at 6:20pm.
I drive home and walk in the door at about 6:30pm.
I walk Polo and then make dinner and do other household chores.
Most days I crash and am a vegetable. 
[no lie.]

I'm beat.

But Monday was glorious. 
I woke up at 8am and packed Dave's lunch.
Polo and I went on a long walk. A couple of long walks throughout the day.
We did laundry and read blogs.
We snuggled on the couch and I taught myself how to sew a zippered pouch.
{yep! I sure did.}
We baked chocolate chip cookies and
I took my car in for service and went grocery shopping.
I folded laundry and made dinner and then Dave got home.

Oh-but I didn't tell you about THE best part of the day.
Polo and I played outside in the backyard in the snow flurries! I took pictures {lots of them} too!

Oh my day was divine.

Until next time....

I need a Monday off-yours sounds absolutely amazing!

This morning, I was so anxious I left the house without being able to eat anything, and then stress ate a cupcake in the bathroom. It's that kind of day.

Sometimes you just need those mental health days to recuperate & catch up!
