For a very long time, Sundays have been very hard for me – at least harder than when I was in high school and I could watch Baywatch while setting out my outfit for Monday and painting my nails in a shade to coordinate.
It was a simpler time, sure – I had no one to answer to but me and a few teachers who insisted on giving out weekend homework.
But Sundays didn’t feel stressful or overwhelming then.
They just felt like a day off.
Somewhere along the way they definitely stopped feeling like a day off and instead starting feeling like a day to do everything – clean the house, grocery shop, meal prep, school prep …
Back when I was teaching co-op classes, Sundays involved a trip to at least one craft store to get supplies.
Our co-op wasn’t until Tuesday, but I felt like I had to have everything ready to go on Sunday night anyway.
I thought this was just a me thing until Cait and I recorded our first episode of the podcast.
When she asked if my anxiety and need to get situated got worse on Sunday nights, I almost jumped out of my chair.
“YES! YES!” I wanted to scream. “YOU TOO?”
And so for the past few weeks, I’ve been working to reclaim my Sundays, at least a little bit.
Hop on over the the Homeschool Sisters site to read what I’m doing.
P.S. It’s definitely kind of working …
Have a good week, friends!
