Most of life is routine – dull and grubby, but routine is the momentum that keeps a man going. If you wait for inspiration you’ll be standing on the corner after the parade is a mile down the street.

Every Monday morning seems to be the same ol’ same ol’ routine unless I am sick and then things tend to get delayed. But, it’s the same, more or less. And, it’s my day off. At the very least, I do not cook dinner.
I tend to wake up, lay in bed and groan. And this is around 5:30 (now 4:30 due to the time change) in the mornings. I would often take a single Excedrin because I feel bad physically. Often, I will try to go back to sleep and fail. I usually end up laying there for about 20 or 30 minutes hoping the pill would kick in. More often than not, I will become functional and thank God for a brand new day.
I get up, put on some long PJ pants, and when it’s cold, I exchange my short sleeve PJ shirt for a long sleeved one. I then head down the hallway for the kitchen, fill up my up my old-timey big thermos mug with water, gather up my vitamins along with my breakfast bar. I sit down at the kitchen table and write down in my bullet journal the things I must do, such as ‘finances’ (bills, budget, etc., and etc.), for the day.
I then head for the couch to get on the laptop. I often eat while I write. I always write first before getting online to do the weekly finances and then I play on social media.
Lather, Rinse and Repeat. Weekly.
Every Monday is a brand new beginning and yet, it rarely changes especially in the mornings.
