Not Another Manic Monday

I suppose right on cue with all of the new year resolutions flying around, as a family we are trying to be more mindful of how we spend our time.

Ignoring the buzzes that come from our phones, our email, our computers. Stepping back from the social media trifecta -- Facebook, Twitter & Instagram -- and instead seeing more of our family and friends. Tuning off the television. Simplifying our schedules so they look less like blueprints. You know, disbanding the armies of distractions in our lives. Looking back at 2012 I fear the thing I wasted most was time. And, time? Well, it isn't always kind to us. It goes and promises it will never come back.

So because of that Monday nights are my new favorite thing around the Stanley loft. I zip out to candelight yoga with a friend, come home to take a bubble bath {these bubbles are lovely!} and the mister cooks us dinner and puts CJ to bed. I'm secretly over-the-moon for my decadent little Mondays now. 

What about you, sweet friends, how do you disband your armies?

P.S. While Mondays are mine, the mister has his own night where he plays ping pong with the guys and drinks craft beer.

Candlelit yoga, sounds amazing. For quite a while, we had a system in place, where we each had our afternoon alone. It was a lifesaver, now the work schedule has changed and so we need to reinstate it, but it's seriously the best thing we've ever done.

I seriously can't remember the last time I took a bubble bath...5, 6 years ago? This may just be the inspiration I need to soak in some bubbles tonight!
