Now that school is back in full swing, I’m back to hating Sundays. By the time I finish the church to-do list (which I haven’t even looked at today, to be honest), it’s on to spending a good hour or two in the kitchen, prepping the week’s meals, and through all of it I’m usually worried that I haven’t planned enough, which always leads to having a really hard time falling asleep.
Sundays are anything but a day of rest for me.
I miss the days when they were. I would go to church, come home, bake something fun, watch a movie, maybe take a nap, read a book…Sundays seemed to last forever and when bedtime rolled around, I never felt cheated or rushed.
It seems like everyone is functioning at a frenetic pace these days. My family, my school friends, people at church–we all look haggard, feel exhausted, and sound unhappy. I don’t know how to change it, and I can’t take it for much longer.
Maybe restructuring Sunday is a place to start.
