Monday Giveaway and Challenge

Mondays are notoriously blah...just ask Garfield..he has been grumbling about them for years. For most of us it's the start to our week. It's the day when the weekend is a distant memory and we starting thinking stressing about all the things we need to get done during the week: grocery shopping, laundry, shuffling kids to their various activities, crafty projects, meetings, work deadlines...just to name a few that we deal with here week after week.

I'm a firm believer in the power of positive thinking, and I fully acknowledge that I don't always practice what I preach...but I'm really trying to change my attitude about things. Like everyone else, I'm a work in progress.

That brings us to the Monday Challenge. Each Monday I will be posting a challenge for myself and you for the week, something that will help us all get over the Monday blues and feel good. My hope is that you will share your thoughts and experiences with the "challenge" each week in the comment section. I LOVE reading all your comments and hearing your thoughts and suggestions!

This week's challenge is easy: Read to someone else. It seems so simple, read, but in our busy lives it's the little things that are usually first to go when we get too busy.

...and for the giveaway....I'm having some trouble coming up with a name for our Monday challenge. This is where you come in. HELP ME! Let your creative juices flow and throw out as many suggestions for a name as you can think of. I will select my favorite and announce the winner at next Monday's challenge. The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to Borders to encourage reading long after this week is over.

So I guess you really have 2 challenges this week: Read to someone AND help me come up with a name!

Have a great week!
