Is it Monday yet?

Tonight I am tired.  Been on the go, with more "going" to do tomorrow.

Funny thing:  I have to pack my suitcase for Alaska before we move out.  Alaska is 15 days away, but I pack, as if leaving, tomorrow.  Sure am glad that it has finally warmed up enough to stop having to wear my AK wardrobe here!
Is it Monday yet?  I could use a good holiday about now.

I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
