happy monday!

last week,
our car got towed (my stupid fault)
and then locating it was a complete nightmare (thanks d.c.)
which brought on melt down #2 for me this week
and kingsley and i got caught in the rain 7 blocks from home
which gave me and baby a ridiculous cold.
and my family dog, dear buster, age ten, had to be put to sleep…
among other sad and annoying things which took place
that i’m aware i shouldn’t complain about
because i know people have bigger problems in the world.
but honestly, it was just a rough week.
so i couldn’t wait to crawl into my bed and go to sleep last night
knowing that morning brought monday, and i would get a “do over.”
so, i can’t believe i’m saying this, but i’m so glad it’s monday.
and a new week. a fresh start.
so very happy about this.
happy happy monday!
  1. happy monday lovey! can't wait to see you.

    Happy Happy Monday!!

  25. That is the beautiful thing about each new day; you can start over. I have a favorite quote from Anne of Green Gables:

    "Marilla, isn't it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?"

    I hope this week goes better for you!

  26. Aww happy monday to you too.

  27. Julie

    Oh, you've gotta love the pregnancy meltdowns! I had many while I was pregnant with my baby girl (whose name is Naomi, haha).

  28. i have to adopt your mentality about this week. i had a few meltdowns last week also. and i can't even blame the pregnancy hormones. it was all me…crazy me…

    deep breath and move forward right?

  29. I feel the same way about Mondays … a fresh start, do over if necessary. Hope its a better week for you! :)

  30. Rachel

    hope this week more than makes up for it!

  31. You two are too cute. Here's to a new week!

  32. ahlin

    i totally feel that way. sometimes mondays are just needed.

  33. Ruth

    I truely hope this monday will be the start of an awesome week!
    For you & for everyone :)

  34. Shorty

    Well that is a very positive perspective. I hope this week is filled with laughter.

  35. praying things get better for you and baby :D

  36. Natalie

    This made me excited to move to the city. I'm not sure why.

  37. i had a week like that recently. i was on the verge of a mini-breakdown/tears non-stop. but, like you said, with monday came clarity, new opportunities and a chance to start fresh. ahh, monday….

  52. Jaime

    Hope this week is a better one for you my lovely……totally know how you're feeling….all these things seem to happen at once! However, you do look beeeyootiful….pregnancy obviously agrees with you….so happy for you & hubby! x

  53. hormones really do make u loose perspective.
    sorry about the bad week and hope you get ur prespective back

  54. im so sorry about all the bad crap that happened this week. hope this new one is a lot better for you.
    and also, such adorable photos of you and the hubby! love em!

  55. oh no :( I'm sorry about your dog.. we just lost our family dog 2 weeks ago.. he was 15.. little Murphy. Love those sweethearts. Give Kingsley a big hug, he'll make you feel better :)

  56. Layla

    So sorry about your dog! We had to put our kitty to sleep three weeks ago and it was the hardest/saddest experience. Pets steal your heart and it's a wreck when something happens to them.

    Hope your week gets better!

  57. Mara

    aw I'm sorry you had such an awful week. So glad this week is turning up though :)

  58. Bad days, bad weeks, bad years are there so you can compare it to another and say – damn, at least it wasn't as bad as that week.. :) x

  59. Krissie

    Sorry about your bad week! My dog of 14 had to be put to sleep as well last week. It's sad!
    Hope this week will be better!

    Love your blogg by the way! ;)

    It's usually the owner's fault when a car gets towed for a rush hour violation, but would it kill parking enforcement to keep accurate notes on where they're moving people's cars to? I had a friend whose car went missing for a week because no one knew where it had been towed!

    Anyway, sounds like we're all having bad weeks. I've been sick with the flu since Saturday.
