Monday Motivation Giveaway Linky – 1/17

21 Flares 21 Flares ×

Motivation I have to admit that I’m not sure that running a giveaway on Monday mornings is the best idea for me. I love hosting the linky and seeing all of the fantastic giveaways everyone has running, but I’m not a morning person and I’m especially not a Monday morning person. That’s why I wanted to make it a motivational post too, because I know I need a little pick me up each Monday and I figured others do too. All this is good and well, except for when I forget to post the linky on Sunday nights! Whoops. Well, here it is. Have fun listing your giveaways and/or entering to win!

Not everyone may agree with today’s quote, but it rings true for Tired Dad Dave and I. As much as we’ve tried and thought it would change after we had kids and as we got older, we just aren’t morning people!

One sign of success is having breakfast at the time of day most people have lunch.” – Tired Mom Tésa

I do have to let you in on a secret. The above quote was actually what I thought I read when I first came across this quote from Robert Brault: “One key to success is to have lunch at the time of day most people have breakfast.” Robert’s quote makes a lot of sense – but I like mine better! :)


Please list your giveaways as: Giveaway/Deadline.

And don’t forget to take a second to hit the tweet and like buttons at the top, they are an easy additional way to promote your giveaways.

Good luck!

  7. Thanks for the linky!

  8. We have a mixed household … I’m a morning person, but my teenager isn’t. Of course, teenagers are their own species altogether. I have learned to tone down my morning enthusiasm and she sometimes tones down her crankiness. As I drive her to school we go with soothing classical music and when she hops out Mom hits something with a beat.

  9. I think the quote is pretty good! In our house he likes to get up before the sun rises (years of Army training) and I like to get up after hours and hours of good beauty sleep. Tomorrow I have to get up early for school and I am so NOT looking forward to that.

    Funny thing though, I stay up a bit later than he does and there rest of the family. I get my quiet time then. He gets his quiet time in the morning before anyone gets up. But we both need that alone time. I sometimes cannot hardly wait for everyone to go to bed so it will be peaceful and quiet!
