If you work or have worked in an office before you've inevitably heard the "How are you?" - "Fine...for a Monday" exchange that seems to go on every single week.

I have a confession. I really don't mind Mondays.


No, it's true. The day goes by fast being "new" and its nice to get a routine going again, get back into structure from the weekend - especially with a young baby. Weekends can throw off our routine, and while they're certainly fun, its always nice to ease back into the swing of things.

Our weekend was an extra fun one this time. We had a good friend visit from out of town, so I had lots of time with Little Miss while Hubby hung out with his buddy bike riding, fishing, etc.

Then Sunday was family day, so Hubby and I and Little Miss slept in and went to the park with a picnic lunch. We sat under a shade tree and ate sandwiches and cookies and chips and then strolled around the park in the shade. Very relaxing and peaceful! (pics to come!)

What about you? Are you more of a structured person, enjoying your routine? Or more of a flexible, take it as it comes type who prefers the weekend chaos over Monday's structure?

If you're a fellow writer, take it a step further and let's see who is a seat of the pants or a plotter. Does the seat of the pants writer also prefer flexibility and fun chaos to structure? Or vice versa?
Let's take a Monday poll!! =)

I love the structure and routine of the weekdays. If life were all weekends, I wouldn't accomplish anything!

There was a movie where everyone in the office talked about their coworkers having "a case of the Mondays."

Yup, I love the structure of my week. And I particularly love the structure of my week when school is in session. I homeschool, and we keep to a pretty set routine.

And I'm a reformed SOTP writer who has become a dedicated Plotter. :)
