I've decided to try to take a lesson from my son. This morning, Monday morning, at 7 am he was wide awake and bouncy and cheerful and glad to be alive and eager to greet the day and what it has to offer. What a great attitude! Mind, he's only 10 1/2 months old, so what he has to look forward to is eating, playing, sleeping, eating, playing, sleeping. However, it occurs to me that wouldn't it be wonderful if he never started hating Mondays, if he always woke up in the morning with a smile? So, I've decided I'm not going to be the one to teach him to be grumpy and depressed on Monday morning. Or any morning for that matter. So... here I am, cheerful and wide awake and eager for what the day has to offer, even if that's only an incomprehensible staff meeting and some updates I'd rather not do.

Mark finished our taxes last night. We're getting a sizable refund. That made us both very happy. It means I can take my trip to NYC to visit Megs guilt-free, and Mark can buy that external dvd reader for the computer he's been wanting, and maybe, possibly I can get a new computer as well. We'll see about that last. But yay for nice tax returns!

You know your fandom is taking over your life when you decide to make a scrapbook of your favorite U2 photos. Heee. But I love scrapbooking and I'm always running out of pictures to put in -- we've about a month's worth left, and can do that much easily in an afternoon of scrapbooking, and this will give me more to scrapbook. Maybe it's silly, but it'll be fun to do. Besides, what could possibly be bad about a whole book of Larry's, Bono's, Adam's and Edge's looking back at you? *giggle*

Speaking of scrapbooking: Shameless advertising. My sister is a Creative Memories Consultant. If any of you are scrapbookers and use Creatie Memories products, she'd be thrilled and delighted to provide you with any supplies you might want or need.

Happy Monday, everybody! *hugs*
