On Mondays I like to get into the office early, like around 7am. I feel really accomplished by 9am and then that feeling usually lasts the rest of the day. According to the Unclutterer website, Tuesday is the most stressful day of the week. That hasn't always been my experience, but I feel best on Mondays knowing that everything is set up well at home (clean sheets, full fridge, laundry put away) and I can cross off a lot of things on to do list at work.
It looks pretty definite that I'll be in Maputo the week of September 19. I looked up the hotel and it's a block from the beach! The only downside is that the week is squeezed between the Exponent retreat and all the Peace Corps 50th anniversary activities.
