Tell Me Why I Don't Like Sundays

When M. Kennedy put forth the idea of NaBloPoMo she suggested, perhaps sarcastically, that we write about the top three things we hate about Sundays.

  1. Despite the [Cue orchestra: "Dunh.dunh dunh.dunh"] ESPN ad campaign to the contrary, it's almost Monday. All this luscious relaxation is coming to an end.
  2. Chores.
  3. Not enough time to get everything done before all this free time comes to an end.

I think that may be only two things, but they're really, really BIG.

Of course, there's lots that I love about Sundays, especially Sundays during football season. I love watching football or even just having it on in the background. I love Sundays because we have a family dinner with Sissy and my cousin. I love Sundays because if I laze about in my pajamas all day, it's okay...may I suggest even required. There's a lot to like about Sundays.

But this Sunday is too stressful to enjoy the games much. I'm having bunionectomies on my left foot tomorrow. In spite of my relationship with my sewing machine, I have a tailor's bunion in addition to the hallux valgus. (It's actually the bunionette--and the two hammer toes--that's driving this surgery.) Be thinking of me...

I hope everything goes smoothly with your surgery.

At least there's a good probably that a Big 10 School with meet a Pac 10 School in the bowl championship game (even if it's not the Rose Bowl).

Make that "probability". Sorry.

Thinking of you today. You should be able to get a lot of stitching done with your feet propped up!
