Anything Goes Sunday

I’m a very disciplined creature by nature…I’ve had to be.  When you grow up in an unstable environment, you need regular rhythms to rely on, so six days a week I’m like a West Point Cadet.

I rise early, making my bed before going out to run.  I do 15 minutes of floor exercises I’ve done for 20 years.  There’s comfort in these rituals readying you for whatever is coming you have no control over: weather, work…the vagaries of others.

Buoys in the water to hold on to.


Not only do I forgo my normal pattern, I don’t even worry on Sunday, leaving all my problems to be once again picked up first thing Monday morning.

Talk about feeling the wind in your hair.

I’m not religious by any means, but I like the idea that God rested on the 7th day.

I can’t imagine him doing sit-ups and laps while fluffing pillows preparing himself like a Navy Seal.

So on the 7th day, she rests too, and all I can say is, it’s highly recommended.

    I agree. Some Sundays I don’t even get dressed I just spend the day in my jammies.


  2. I believe you could market this regular routine, Susannah. How much? 😀

    You could use Sundays to polish your halo!

    Good for you, Susannah! I have little routines, such as cleaning the stove top, microwave, and counters after doing dishes. But I’m too laid back (unorganized) to have any meaningful routine.

  5. Can I get an AMEN! I would also like to add that bras should be banned on Sundays as well … its the ultimate constraint.

  6. I so agree with you. Since we have moved, I have tried for a quiet Sunday, we do go to church, but afterward, it is just a quiet day, not doing anything pressing. Last weekend was a flurry of activity and I see how exhausted I was all week long from not taking a day to rest.


  7. Sunday is a great day to take it easy on. I usually take Saturday to do all the stuff at home I haven’t had time for during the week, but Sunday is for relaxing.


  8. A good rest (a whole day!) can be so lifting and wonderful. I seldom take whole days off, but I don’t work full-time, so I rest in short periods. My blood sugar is good, my BP is very good. I am not in the shape I would like to be, but that is my problem and solved other ways. But, since the stroke, my mind is clearer and I have more time to think. I think about not worrying, so I don’t worry much at all. A great difference from pre-stroke times.

    • I’m a chronic worrier, something I must work on.

      • I know that the stroke reset my filters and helped stop my worrying and I also know that my experience while in the coma helps me to see that God is watching over me and I have nothing to worry about. Still, I do understand worry. I throw prayers and positives your way. I hope you get better.


      • Tell me about that experience. What do you mean? Unless you mind of course.

      • No, I don’t mind. It’s all on my website. I had a coma-inducing hemorrhagic stroke in May 2010. All of my mental filters were reset like a reboot on a computer. I found that I could leave many turned off. My OCD is almost entirely gone, I don’t worry much, and I am very honest when I speak. I believe I did die and was in that room where you are asked to pass on and I said I wanted to stay, so here I am. That is, of course, very abbreviated. As I said, my website goes into more detail. It has been a blessing and a curse, but I enjoy a lot of it, though the double-vision, balancing problems, and memory issues as well as fatigue problems as not something I enjoy.


      • I find that fascinating, truly. Thanks for being so candid. An admired trait.
