It's Hard to Write Your Way Through the Monday Blues

I wish I worked on Mondays #365StrongStories by Marisa Goudy What if every weekend was a three day weekend? Sounds like an ideal life, right? From my experience, that isn't necessarily true.

Theoretically, Mondays are a mother-daughter day and I don't work except for during nap time. That never really serves anyone.

Today, I tried my best to write my way through the "I don't like Mondays" blues. I tried to write a story of how I just couldn't show up as a mom when I felt like I "should" be working. I ended up in the worst of both worlds, neither present nor productive.

Every story I tried to tell about the day came out in a tangle. I sounded like a whiny victim or a preachy blogger. After all, the easy solution would be to hire a sitter  for a few hours and just get to work! I'm going to get on that. Promise. In the meantime, here's the Facebook Live quickie for your #365StrongStories shot of video storytelling.
