Who said Sunday is a day of rest?
I find Sundays to be extremely exhausting. Sometimes I leave church in a bad mood and ready for everyone to leave me alone!
A usual Sunday begins with Laura waking us up and lying in bed with us. I like this part! Then it is typically a race to shower, dress, eat breakfast, and get to Sunday school on time. Since I share 3rd-grade teaching responsibilities with someone, it is best if I am there before my students on the days that I am teaching.
The class is a lively bunch and once that is over, I grab Laura from her class and go to the nursery to make sure the workers have arrived. If they haven't, that means I have to hunt them down. I usually get to service after it has started. Then the real fun begins....entertainment until Children's Church begins! Usually Laura does just fine in church; however, we are busy with snacks, coloring, and occasional threats! Bottom line...it is hard to concentrate!!
After church, of course, is the ride home with a hungry family in tow ready to eat the minute we walk in the door. A quick lunch is made, and I'm usually the last to sit down. (sob) Then, if we are lucky, Laura takes a nap — and so do I. However, on no-nap Sundays, it can be ugly. On Sunday nights, we either have a small group meeting or a congregational meeting at the building. It is just a rough day!
I welcome any suggestions on making Sunday more smooth. Am I the only one out there who thinks the Day of Rest is one of the busiest days of the week!
