And on the 7th day???  

Posted in ,

Well Sunday is supposed to be a day of relaxation, but I was not going to get that chance today. My kids decided that they wanted to be up and at em at a brisk 6:30 am this morning. So while I didn't jump out of bed, I sure didn't sleep either. Ah well, maybe I'm just jealous cause I remember being that age and having all the time on the weekends to do what I wanted. It was a pretty great feeling to know that your biggest worry for the day was what time lunch was.

Jump ahead to early afternoon and my football team is getting a lesson taught to them as well...It's called losing 2 in a row. (Dallas Cowboys...you guys are killing me) that notwithstanding I figured I'd laze around on the puter and just read up on some blogs and play a few video games while the kids had their nerf gun wars. But not gonna happen. The inlaws are in town from out of state and that means that they have to come visit. They come over (in the middle of my disappointing Sunday football game) and want to take the boys christams shopping. Now that sounds like a great idea, let's kill two birds with one stone. I don't have to visit since I was feeling a bit anti-social anyway and I won't be shot by random nerf darts for a little while. Unfortunately this only lasted about an hour and back they came. Then they were ready to settle in and "visit".

Fast Forward to three hours later and they are leaving. I figure now I can relax in front of the puter and do nothing if I felt like it. I jump on my favorite video game and of course there are only a couple of other people playing. They were all online earlier when of course I couldn't be present to enjoy my Sunday visit with them. So I messed around a little bit and figured I could find something a bit more productive. Not likely, clothes get washed dinner gets served and that raps up my Sunday.....

Oh well I'm a pretty positive guy, so I figure it was only a matter of time until I actually looked forward to Monday. Here it is and I'm actually looking forward to getting back to the work week.

Hope all of you managed to enjoy your sunday a bit more than this. And Ian I hope your little one is feeling tons better.

Man, I thought I already commented on this. Either way, thanks for the shout out. He is feeling better, and its not that he was the 'sickest' kid in the world. It's more of when you have something very special planned and you can't pull it off it's a major bummer.

Cowboys fan eh? From the area? I always wondered what it's like to pop on the tv at 10a and watch football. I'm always having to wait till 1p, 4:15, 8:30p...etc.

Your day going ok today?

I'm unfortunately not in the area...my game was early afternoon as well... Day today is much better than I should hope to expect from a Monday...
Ian..you might have commented on it, not sure if I read it before I posted this, but I know how it is to have sick kids when we have stuff goin on. It sucks plain and simple..Glad he's feeling better..

Bendigo, I understand how you feel! I long for a life when Monday doesn't mean the obligation of the office job but instead the joy of writing for a living (even if it means more stress and hard work than the 9-5!) At the moment, I need Sundays to be entirely free and lazy as the only day when I don't have to do anything. But Christmas holidays soon!
