I was dragging this morning when I finally got to work. My friend/co-worker, M, greeted me with “It’s Monday and I am alive.” It was just what I needed to hear.
The start of each week is always a mixed bag for me. On the one hand, I love starting the week because I love a good project and in my line of work, that’s what the week has in store. Of course, on the other hand, the beginning of the week heralds the end of the weekend. Thus the Monday feeling.
Today ended pretty stongly with the birth announcement of the royal baby — a boy! I was personally hoping for a girl. I would think for two OBVIOUS reasons: 1. the sake of the Duchess dressing an adorable little girl and 2. for the giant step toward gender equality with the Succession to the Crown Act of 2013.
With all this England love zooming around, I realized my weekend activities were very on trend as I had tea — not once but twice (different sets of friends) — at our local biblio/anglophile heaven, Oxford Exchange.
