Pbblllttt Monday

There is so much to do during the week and you so look forward (or at least I do) to not having as much on your plate on the weekend, and then there is so much to do on the weekend that you begin to look forward to Monday's predictability.

Okay, maybe we look forward to Tuesday's predictability. We just look forward to Monday's coffee.

However, Monday does mean fresh start. Accomplishments and back slides of last week are behind us, this week it's a clean slate and that slate needs some words!

Sure the challenges last week were fruitful. And the word ward kicked ass! But there is still more to be done! What's filling up your slate this week?
