Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Week of the Autumnal Equinox?

Happy Monday! I was super productive this weekend, if “productive” equals “buying stuff”. Which I guess it might in this case, since I bought stuff I needed like a new space heater and chest of drawers. Anyway, very excited for both those to arrive and my apartment to be all autumn-y.

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me As Dawdle in a Hotel Room?

Happy Monday! I got within an hour of my sister’s by 9pm last night and we made a decision for me to stay at a hotel within emergency call zone instead of arriving in the middle of bedtime when we are all tired. And now I am relaxing in my big huge hotel bed and thinking “do I really want to leave here and go be beaten up by a 2 year old who is mad at me for not being Mommy?”

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me as I Travel???

Happy Monday! This post comes to you from the Halifax airport! We take a flight from here to Toronto and then Toronto to Chicago, and then I am finally home with Albie Dog by about 5pm Chicago time. Everything would be working perfectly except that my headphones broke so I have to hold the right ear in place with my hand. This is a bit of a problem because the headphones are both my preferred method of airplane entertainment and (way more important) the best solution for MASSIVE PRESSURE CHANGE EAR PAIN. So, I will just have to hold them on my head really tight with both hands and then it will be fine. Yes, I already checked, the airport stores are sold out.

Monday Morning Questions Post: What Do You Want to Ask Me on Vijay Raaz’s Birthday???

Happy Monday! Well, happy for you, not me. Not unhappy for me, just exhausted. Between the yards of the house-house, and the summer opening of the lake house, I worked flat out in a variety of ways all of last week (just some random examples, last Sunday I hung curtain rods, this Thursday I carried a large dollhouse down from the attic, and on Saturday I dropped a paving stone on my finger). My eyes hurt, my back hurts, and I don’t want to move. I think next weekend I will officially give myself time off and not do ANYTHING.

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Day After Madhuri’s Birthday?

Happy Monday! I’m up at the lake house again. This week it is slightly too cold instead of too hot. On the one hand, that means I am absolutely not going into the lake itself or doing any lake-adjacent things (like kayaking and then following out and freezing). But on the other hand, it is so comfy and cozy to sit inside by the fireplace and look out at the lake.

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the First Day I Go to the Lake House This Year?

Happy Monday! It is GORGEOUS today! Do other places have spring like this? Rainy, hovering around 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit, and then all of a sudden you have your first sunny 70 degree day and then it just keeps going sunny forever? Anyway, I’ve decided I want to drive up to the lake house after work, even though it hasn’t been fully opened for the season (no boats, no pier, no spring cleaning yet), and just camp out in the prettiness.
