sunday

i have a love/hate relationship with Sundays.

1. we teach the sunbeams: love them to little pieces. love listening to their takes on doctrine with speech impediments. love hearing that i shouldn't wear high-heels because i will poke a hole in God.

hate that i have to wipe their tooshies, get peed on, try to keep them focused for 45 minutes and then listen to frazzled mothers tell their sons (while we are still in earshot) that they can't have long hair like russ.

2. family dinners:
love everything about this. good food, seeing the nieces and nephew, guitar hero etc.

3. naps: i can't nap. russ can... for HOURS. i hate this.

4. walks: russ and i love our late sunday night walks. the neighbors are all dozing and we can enjoy our surroundings and each other in peace. i hope to be doing this until we are old and gray.

Ok, I'm with you on the napping. I can take Sunday naps, but if they last longer than an hour, I can't get to sleep that night. Dave will gladly sleep all day long, wake up for food, then go back to sleep all night long. How is that possible?

Russ is a global icon...and his hair is a transcendental connundrum...a symbol of peace for the Iraqis and South Africa and such as.

Emily, your blog cracks me up. Did I know you were such a humorous writer? You're a humorous talker that's for sure. Anyway, I enjoy reading your blog and this one's a favorite.
