Makeover Monday

It's Monday? Again? Already?!

It barely seems like yesterday that I sat here and typed my seemingly manageable goal of making more time for me and dreamed of sessions at my other keyboard hearing myself play a little bit of Tchaikovsky or the like. Where did the darn week go then? Just as I'm getting round to finding time to actually sit down and get the music book out of the plastic bag that I carried it home from the store in, I find myself at another Monday and not only am I supposed to be playing away, but have other goals in store for this coming week!

I failed miserably at the piano piece last week, but did enjoy a great dinner out with my friends, and vow to make that a more regular feature (it's 8 months since we did it last!)

Moodswingingmommy at Am I Going Mad or am I just a Mommy is keeping us on our toes with Makeover Monday so rather than throw in the towel, I'll try this again. I'm going to learn a piano piece this week! That is my only 'formal' goal since the hubs is going to be away 3 out of the 5 workday nights this week my real goal will be surviving until Friday, with a full head of hair and sanity intact!

Check out Makeover Monday at Am I going Mad or am I just a Mommy for instructions on how you can participate.

Great! Good luck with this. I know how hard it is to have your husband away. It seems manageable until about 6:00 p.m. By then you are begging to go to the bathroom alone! :-)

You said it, sister! The hardest thing is to make it through the day when you are the sole caregiver.

Do not despair, and good luck with your piano piece! I'd consider it a major achievement if you can sneak a little time to sit down and work on it.

Good for you for going out with friends! I need to do more of that sans kids.

Haha. I totally understand that! That's actually why I haven't signed up for Makeover Monday--because there are ten billion things I OUGHT to work on, and I'm painfully aware of all the things I SHOULD be doing, but I don't see how to cram even one more little thing into my crazy life right now! I stand in absolute AWE of those of you who are even TRYING!

Good luck this week!

Sounds like a fun night out with your friends. I love those!

We're in the same boat with having our hubbies out at night; I'm going through the same thing.

Learning music is a nice idea! Good for you! And even better for you - to go out with your friends! I'll seriously consider that as a goal for next week!

take care!

Way to stick it out! Great goal by the way.
