Day of Rest

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.

  1. good call! plus i find i have to remind myself i can't do it all. i have to say no to some things. i allowed myself to have home delivery groceries – that was sort of nice, but now that i'm roommate free i'm needing to save money so i'm going to try to be more organized grocery wise and cooking wise so that can still enjoy my sabbath but also be decently fed during the week. carry on and good luck!
