The week after a long weekend always feels long, right? I actually had some long days this week and so really, my work week was longer than usual. Monday was the worst – 3 cups of espresso did nothing for me. By Tuesday I was fine but I’m looking forward to re-energizing this weekend! I hope you bounced back from the long weekend better than I did.
