Ahhh, Sunday. After having Julie’s cousin and family over at the house yesterday, it was a day to lie low. But I never feel satisfied with days like this. I need to occupy myself and keep my brain off work.
It started like any other Sunday: church first. But we didn’t go to church until 11:30pm, and it was an all together different church. Julie wanted to try Holy Family church, so we did. A friend of hers goes there. I felt like it was a church out of a different time period, particularly the 1970’s. But it did have a cozy feel. Afterwards, I had some Sunny D and a piece of glazed donut (that tasted like a store bought donut). Yum.
I then plopped down at the computer for what I thought would be one hour of catching up on e-mail. Try 2 hours. And then that was followed by an argument about tracking receipts. Should I go to the pool? Nah, I finished watching “Broadway Danny Rose”. Then, as a family, we watched “Mission Impossible III.” Sure, I had seen it before, but we’ve been on a “Mission Impossible” kick having recently watched the 1st one and the latest movie. I can do without #2, which is just like watching a dog do #2 in the backyard.
After I got the computer running again after Mitchell accidentally shut it down (and I believe it overheated), we took the dog on a walk. The weather cooled off a bit since it looked like it might rain, but it never did. I then worked on cleaning up my work e-mail, but no momentum on any projects.
Now it’s almost time for night night. I think I would rather we had guests over today. Otherwise, I get a little preoccupied with what I should do rather than focus on what I am doing. It’s a bad habit of mine. I also feel guilty when the kids get plugged in and don’t think to do anything else. I suggested we go see “Pirates: Band of Misfits” but of course everyone said they didn’t want to see it. Maybe next time.
