What Would Be Your Ideal Sunday?


My ideal Sunday is very different from my normal Sunday, especially since all the trouble started between Sabrina and me. I have always viewed Sundays as family days, days that are devoted to spending time with one’s family and enjoying each other. I would like our family (my daughter’s family and me) to have dinner together and maybe go to a movie or play games together. It becomes more difficult as the girls get older and have so many things to do at school. And my daughter devotes much of every weekend to cleaning, even though she has a maid come in every other week to do cleaning. There is laundry to do and picking up to do. So my dream of a lovely dinner, either at home or going out, is a this point just a dream. The girls have their own idea of what constitutes an ideal Sunday, and I can bet it doesn’t include dinner and games. Well, it might involve video games.

My normal Sunday is getting up early to say prayers and then I check my email and I read the important ones. I also read books, since I usually have several going at one time. I watch TV, usually WE on Sunday because they have the bridal shows which I find entertaining. (I wish I could taste the cakes and food that is being served.) I may take a nap, or do some picking up these last few weekends in getting ready to get the house organized. I rarely see or hear from my daughter or her family, except these past two weekends, we have gone to lunch one day and to the movies one day. So I guess my ideal Sunday is not terrible far off from my normal Sunday. It just depends on what you make of it.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
