Volume 70 – Hey Dad, Do You Get the Sunday Scaries?

Don’t Let Your Monday Ruin your Sunday

Your Sunday Seven!

1. Celebrate (a) Dad Today 

Happy Father’s Day to all of you dads, granddads, soon-to-be-dads, or any man important man in your life! 

I happen to be en route to Pennsylvania to celebrate a (slightly belated) Father’s Day with my dad – pictured above – because it is also his 70th Birthday this week!

My dad is a special guy, and I am grateful for him every day, not just on one day of the year. 

I had the pleasure of having my dad as my high school math teacher for three years, which is where I learned to enjoy math and science and pretty much why I went to engineering school. Dad is intelligent and charismatic and tends to the “mayor” in any social circle, from the halls of McGuffey High School to the church sanctuary.

Yeah, I got my personality “honestly.”

3. Succumb to Peer Pressure

Every once in a while, your friends know what’s best for you. Like today when they all talked me into participating in a 10-mile downriver SUP race…when I swore to myself I wouldn’t do it after one painful experience last year.

Well, I did. I’m still not sure I’m glad I did, but it’s over, and I finished (not last this year), AND I gave the entire town of Salida one fun show as I fell in and swam the entire whitewater park in an epic finish.

I really hope someone got a photo of me smiling as I swam across the finish line.

Stay humble!

[And leave the competitive paddleboarding to Jim!]


4. Turn Back Time

No, I didn’t have Cher on the podcast, but I did chat with another musician – Deborah Johnson, M.A. on this week’s episode of No More Mondays.

As a Grammy-nominated composer, Deborah figured out the special sauce to succeeding in a competitive environment, and she’s channeled her experience to coach women through that pesky mid-point in life – “halftime” to create personal and professional momentum.

If you’re really a podcast junkie – or an Angie superfan 😂 – you can also tune in to my appearance on Deborah’s podcast which also went live this week!


5. Dog Sit for a Friend

Hanging around this river festival, which is essentially dog land, made me realize how much I miss our beloved Foster, who left us this past fall.

He was also a competitor in the dog competition’s here!

I had a lot of fun-loving on other people’s dogs, which provided a nice reminder of the light animals bring into our world.

If you don’t have one of your own, volunteer to watch a friend’s pet for a day or a weekend while they’re on a summer trip. You’ll be happier and healthier for it.

And you may just go on the search for a foster of your own! 🥰


6. Create a Monday You Look Forward To

I asked my friend Melana (female SUP state champ!) for a suggestion and he said “I’m not a good person to ask. I look forward to Mondays!”

When I asked her why, she said it’s the only day of the week when her kids (she’s a 2d grade teacher) get excited to share their fun from the weekend.

So, in summary, we deduced that you should create an experience worth sharing – something that makes you look forward to seeing your co-workers and having a cool answer to “What did you do this weekend.”

Good advice, champ!
