WHO SAYS MONDAYS ARE BAD?
In my personal view, I would have to say that Mondays have an undeservedly bad rap.
After all, for the stay at home moms and housewives, Mondays can be considered a not so terrible thing: the kids go back to school (although, we miss them the moment they walk out the door), husbands go back to work (although, I miss him, too) and we can sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee and not have any worries other than what pertains to us directly.
Today was a good Monday.
Firstly, the book I ordered from Amazon.com arrived today. I believe I mentioned before that it only cost me $4.00 including shipping and handling. Granted it's used but in good shape (and a hard cover to boot!).
It's called 'Now What? 90 Days To A New Life Direction' by Laura Berman Fortgang and one I've been looking forward to reading for several weeks now.
Looks like 'Mansfield Park' will have to be put aside once again. Sorry, Ms. Austen.
Then, I viewed our cable bill: we have a package deal for digital cable, Internet and phone and I noticed that it keeps creeping up. So, I called and said: "What can we do? We've been customers for over a decade and our bill just keeps getting higher and higher, we even downgraded a few months ago..."
The guy I spoke with did some tinkering around, after viewing our long standing account with them, and made our bill about $50.00 a month cheaper than what we're paying now. Not only did he not deduct anything from our cable package to do this, he added to it by giving us a new movie channel.
I was blown away. One phone call and I not only saved $50.00 a month, but I got something free.
To top it all off -- and just because -- B comes home from school and surprises me with a vegetable and rice bowl for me for lunch.
I couldn't have been more surprised if someone stapled my head to the carpet.
I really do have an awesome son.
So, perhaps Mondays aren't so bad after all.
