Well, it was the Monday after spring break for me too (my husband's spring break - we went to NC (Hickory) & Charleston). So, yeah - extra Mondayness going on here :)Glad you were able to spend time with your friends. Didn't even THINK about the strobe thing - what a pain!
Last night was rough, but today the sun rose through the darkness, and in the end, the day was more beautiful because of it. Glad that you had a wonderful weekend to build your week upon!
