When I was a kid, I hated Sundays. We were always broke, we didn't attend church and the TV only had 3 stations- one always broadcast bowling, another had a lousy B movie and finally, my favorite- televangelists.
Time is funny for kids. When you are bored and lonely, it drags and Sundays always felt like they were an eternity. Even the end of a Sunday was sad, because the next day was always a school day and I hated school worse than a month of Sundays.
It is weird because as an adult, Sunday has always been my favorite day of the week. My kids and I are together most of the time, but Sundays just have a different vibe. We watch movies, eat big home cooked meals and relax. There is no where we have to go and nothing we have to do and that is such a relief.
Random Babbling Alert! Something complete off-topic follows.
Tomorrow, my Big Girl starts a new online school curriculum and I am very excited (yes, more than she is). She isn't one for a lot of reading and text books, but she loves being on the computer. I am hoping that she will enjoy this new program and since I only have to worry about teaching her 'extras' like art and music, I should be spending a lot less time pouring over lesson plans.
Going to an oral surgeon this week to get a broken tooth and an impacted wisdom tooth removed. Yeah, me! If it weren't for the wacky gas and scrip for Vicodin he is going to give me, Thursday would be a total wash.
Finally, being Sunday, I am supposed to submit my weekly photo entry on my flickr group and I don't have anything. Zip, Nada, Bupkiss! I can't think of anything interesting to shoot, I don't want to get dressed and go look for anything to shoot. Hmmmm....it is a bit of a problem.
What's the worst that can happen? I get kicked out of my free, voluntary group for not participating? I need to remember this is why I don't join things. I hate being obligated to do anything. I know, some people are thinking, um...that is life. However, I have done very well avoiding situations where I am obligated or required to do anything.
Well, I have 10 hours to take a picture of something. Maybe I will get inspired sometime today.
