It all started when Mrs. M. woke me from a deep sleep, wearing only the best grin and the most mischievous eyes. For a solid hour, she did everything I already knew she could, and everything I always dreamed but never thought would ever be in her love vocabulary. And then, she promised there would be a lot more days like this because she wanted to make up for lost time. Then there was a quick shower and we ran out before the kids woke up, to grab breakfast at that place I really like.
We got home and the kids were already up and dressed for school. My daughter had walked and fed the dog, and was getting herself ready to commute to college. My son went out early to catch the bus, and had turned in all of his homework last night, including getting caught up on all of his late assignments.
I clocked in to work and the boss had sent me an email saying she was giving me a raise, both to adjust to cost of living, and, because so many of my customers have sent in rave reviews of my service already this year. My callers were all really polite and pleasant, and I even had time to clear my queue of things i needed to catch up on, and follow up on.
I mean, everyone usually is upset about the weekend being over, and having to get back to the first day of the daily grind. Today was a Monday, but for me it was a Monday like none other.
It was April 1st.
