I’m not really blue (although 3 day weekends are always SO nice…). I am confused. Mondays off of work/school always throw me for the rest of the week. It’s a full-on conscious effort to remind myself exactly what day it is, and in order to make sure the kiddos get to where they need to be WHEN they need to be there. Therefore, today my mantra is: Today is Wednesday. Phew. Now to repeat for the rest of the day!!!
Here in the states we celebrated Labor Day, which is defined by the US Department of Labor as: Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. I Labor, therefore I get a day. However, Hubby labors and worked, so did lots of other people…..still a reminder and a paid holiday for me, so I’ll take it!
A few other things Labor day signifies, officially, unofficially, either way it’s a benchmark:
Fall: It’s a comin’. Maybe not here in the South where we will continue to
swelter enjoy 90-degree temps for another month or so, but it is coming!
Pumpkin: Fall flavors @ Starbucks. Pumpkin spice cream cheese (oh MY!! I bought this weekend and holy cow!! Delish. Go get some). Pumpkin muffins. Pumpkin cookies. Pumpkin pancakes. ‘Tis the season of pumpkin! Enjoy!!
Fashion: No more white pants, shoes, etc. WhatEVA!!! When we are enjoying 90-degree temps, I WILL be wearing white, just sayin’. Deal.
End of the beach season: Maybe for others, not so much for us. In fact, I avoided the beach this weekend because I know NEXT weekend I won’t be fighting the crowds.
Back to school: We’re in week 3 here, but at this time of the year, the entire country is BACK TO SCHOOL! AMEN!! Perfect time to hit Disney if you are a local…NO lines, baby.
Sometimes with season changes come other changes: Spring cleaning, fitness changes, furniture re-decorating, garage sales,and so on. For me, season change usually signal a change-up in my fitness routine and this is what I’m doing to kick off Fall:
Peak 313 has a 5-week challenge starting on the 10th…a Monday, of course! It’s up over 200 people! WOW! I’m always up for a change; I get bored so quickly. It will be good accountability and challenging. Of course, I’ll still be hitting my track routine during cheer practice and the gym @ lunch a few days a week…so this will be extra! 5 weeks never sounds so bad in the beginning does it? There’s still time to join in, you can click HERE if you want to find out all the details, etc, etc, etc….
That’s it for today….time to get crackin’ on the day! Happy Hump day!!!
