Sunday, fun-day?

Sundays. Hmm I really am not sure how I feel about this day of the week. I love the thought of Sunday, because in my mind it is the perfect day to relax and catch yourself up on, well, yourself  =) 

However, I think Sundays can also be the day of the week you feel most lonely. I am incredibly lucky to have great family/friends and am enjoying my "singlehood" but for some reason Sundays continually seem to bring out the more pathetic side of me. Maybe it is because as a child Sundays were always a time for family to get together, it became ingrained in me that this was when those who loved you most surrounded you for the day and everyone enjoyed one anothers company. Now that we are all older, this is not so much the case anymore - who can compete with college life (i.e. hangovers and term papers?!). Its also the day that I most like, when I am in a relationship. Sundays, in the past, have typically been the day that myself and whomever I'm with, would spend together; recouping from a weekend spent with friends and family.

Its a "together" day.

So that is my gripe with Sundays. Perhaps it is time I find a new hobby, anyone have any suggestions?

Besides this little ongoing tiff I have with Sundays, my weekend was great :)  Drinks and chinese food with family friends, house hunting with my mom, skiing and cocktails with friends! What do I really have to complain about?!? lol

Pictorial Review: Captured Moments from the Weekend.



Liv and I enjoying the last few moments of sunlight while at the playground on Saturday. Brr it was chilly!




Searching for something in my moms "junk" drawer when I stopped and realized what a neat collage of items this was. It sums my mom up sort of perfectly. Passport (loves to travel), Toys R'US receipt (mom of 5, including a little one), Bracelet (elegant and classy), Grandfathers brush (things of his cover the whole house, hes always close : ), moola (even if its a buck, she knows its worth!), pixie cup holding her wedding rings (simplistic yet treasured). My dad would cringe if he saw that pixie cup... :-p

Hope you all had a nice weekend.

That's a really nice picture and discription of how it's like your mom.

As for Sundays I'd relish in the being alone - and this is coming from a person who hates being alone. Nevertheless, I like to remind myself that there will come a time when I miss the days of being alone so I enjoy those moments now for my older self's benefit.

I love the pic too. I saw it first and was immediately drawn to it. Its like a snapshot of life - everything mixed up together and everything with meaning.

Also, Sundays ARE a funday. At least they're supposed to be. My suggestion is that you fill it with other things to do (activities with friends, volunteering, shopping, woo!). Then you won't feel so bad/lonely/sad and like you're missing out. good luck! and have FUN dammit!

I'm not sure what it is about Sundays but I am always grouchy. I just can't escape it. Such a weird day of the week.

Hope you and your mum find a perfect home for the family next Sunday if you go on house hunting again. That will make your Sunday exhilarating.
