Monday Motivation



     I think we should have 3 day weekends.  Saturdays are for kids and their sports and activities or working in the yard or cleaning the house.  You finally get chilled out on Sunday and it's time to start the week back over.

     I don't think anyone would disagree that Monday has to be the day in most need for motivation.  I love music.  If a good song is playing, I can get motivated really easily.

    I don't think I know anyone who doesn't like music.  I am so blessed that my kids appreciate music from when I was their age.  My youngest bought a record player last Fall and I was so excited!  It was funny having to teach him how to use it.  My kids are usually teaching me how to use everything.

     I got him some albums for Christmas. I had a blast picking them out.  I got Journey, Boston, Fleetwood Mac, and Steve Miller Band.  He likes the bands, but he is a romantic (he's the one with a girlfriend) and wasn't too familiar with Chicago, so that was a must buy.

     It's fun that my kids like my "old" music.  My aunt Gina, my dad's sister, was 14 when I was born and I spent a lot of time with her when she was in high school.  My mother's brother, Jimmy, was the same age as Gina so of course I thought everything he did was just so cool. I know I love music from the mid '70s because of them.  And, my dad's older brother, Eddy, sang in a band then so it would be impossible for me to not have fond memories of music.

     I am so much like my dad. My grandmother sang in the church choir and played the piano.  My dad says she would take my uncle Eddy to choir practice on Sunday afternoons and send my dad golfing with my grandfather because he "couldn't carry a tune in a bucket."  Any kind of musical ability totally skipped me.  

     I made these new earrings and posted them on my Etsy shop yesterday. I can't guarantee wearing them will give you motivation, but I am sure they will bring compliments!
