Sundays

Sundays

Sundays are for sleeping in until 8 or 9 am, when the sun is at its height and lazily sipping that first cup of coffee.

Okay, that’s all a fanciful wish when you have kids, but I can dream can’t I?

I love Sunday mornings, for that relaxed and lazy feeling that it brings. Unlike Saturdays, that are full of that “How much can I get done?” mentality that comes the day after your last workday. Well, for most of us anyway. Sundays, represent either a time of worship, meditation, quiet moments or quality family time. Sunday dinners are usually big fare and promised leftovers until at least Tuesday. It’s time to make sure that the kids have completed their homework. In our house, it’s hair washing day. Oh joy!

Sundays are for going out or staying in but not stressing about it one way or the other. If someone invites you to a birthday party on a Sunday, you are usually quite annoyed because they are cutting into your “I don’t have to go out today if I don’t want to” time and it makes the day seem shorter rather than longer.

I love Sunday afternoons, for that opportunity to sneak in an illicit nap. Falling asleep on the couch with my toddler as we watch a Disney movie and tricking my five year old into lying down for some quiet time even though she’s absolutely positive that she’s not tired! Wait…is that her snoring like a trucker??? Score one for mom!

Aaaahhhh…Sundays are the best!

Until you remember that tomorrow is Monday!

Wow…way to put a downer on things, huh?

THAT’S AN IDEA!

THAT’S AN IDEA!

Happy ‘Day after Canada Day’!!! Everyone slept in late this morning….AAAHHHH! This is the life! Sleeping in; eating breakfast at a leisurely pace with the family; watching TV or going for a walk in the hot summer weather. Everything is great, until you remember you have to go to work the next day.

WAAAHHHHHAAA!

I am definitely not meant to work a 9-5! Never mind the fact that I’ve been doing it for more than 20 years! That’s not the point. I AM NOT MEANT TO WORK A 9-5!

Diva girl told me the other day that she wished I never had to work. Sigh….I love that kid! I actually don’t mind working…but Iike most people, I would love to not HAVE to work. I would love to be able work when I felt like it, and not worry about the welfare of my family, if I suddenly lost my job.

Now that is luxury at its finest!

I have few ideas of what I’d like to do, but I need to kick myself into gear. That’s always been my problem…I come up with a great idea and then sit and think about how great my idea is, but never do anything about it.  I wonder if I could make money by giving other people my ideas???  

Hmmm…..
