I would like to create a script that would run every Monday and check if today is first Monday of the month.  If it is, then continue with the execution. If it isn't then exit.  Any ideas?

well ... i'll assume you can schedul this with whatever ... like Window's Scheduler ...

set a scheduled task for a certain time to run on every Monday ...
the task would run the script which could handle checking if was the first Monday ...

i'm not extremely familiar with Perl but I think that you could then create a variable in the script with the current date ...
from that you could extract the current day and use that in a conditional

if (day <= 7)
  continue execution
else
  exit script
