In my house Sundays have been family day. We could go out with friends but had to be home by like 3pm. Once we got home, it was a Sunday dinner and a family movie, game etc. Now a days I do try to keep the same traditions. However, when Im working I am working. I try to prepare a dinner for them. I try to come home an do something as a family. I wish I could keep the same traditions I had when I was young. I hate this dam recession! Everything has changed since I was young. I am currently unemployed so I am doing the family thing. I love it! It brings back so many memories. How about you, do you have special plans for your Sundays?dl

the hot summer has gone, now it's time to travel or have sports outside again. they say in the summer we lost a lot of sweat, and neednt exercise a lot. and now, the winter is coming, then we can have more exercises.

Winter is here that is for sure. I live in New England and we are quite happy with the winter weather. It hasnt been really cold as it usually is. But excercise is a great idea! dl

On Sunday, at 8 am,usually my family went to church until 9:30 am. Then we came home, ate breakfast and then we went swimming or to the playground called KidsLand, just to please our daughter who was 2 years old. We were there untill 12 noon, then we're lunch. And then, we just go home and relax while watching TV or watching our favorite movies. At 4:30 pm, I usually around on a bike with friends from the Bicycle-Jogja Adventure Team (B-JAT). Do you have a bicycle? What type of bike if any?

What a great day! The fact that you spend time just to make sure your baby enjoys the day is touching. So many dont spend time with their little ones doing something the baby will enjoy. I like that you kind of do a little something for everyone. The park for the baby, church for the soul, movies and together time for you and the mrs., then time for yourself. Its nice to see that families can still be families without being selfish. Your daughter is going to grow knowing the love of a family. There is nothing better. So many families are one parent families. If you're lucky enough to have both parents together, you have something that's becoming extinct. Indulge in it! Great way to spend your Sunday! Bless you and yours.Happy MyLotting dl

My Sundays are really boring for me and the kids. My husband works as a Professor over the weekends and he's out earlier than usual (the kids are still in bed then) and he returns late. So, we are usually left to our own devices. Since my kids are 6 years apart, their interests are different and I can't keep them occuppied with the same things at home. It's easier outside where they can play the same games..run around, cycle...swim. I can't drive and that gets it difficult for me to get around with them. I'll be starting driving classes in a couple of weeks...after which I hope to take them out and do something together....even if it is to pick up a movie and come back home to watch it together. When I was growing, Friday was our Sunday (lol..I grew up in a Muslim country). It was a lazy day....but that was the one day we had a proper South Indian breakfast(instead of the usual cornflakes or bread) because all of us were home. We would use the morning to do some major cleaning of the house while mom cooked a lavish lunch (which we had daily anyways) and then we would spend some time as family...watching a movie, chatting...having friends over sometimes or visiting friends. We might have a very little nap in the afternoons (usually our parents did while we read or did something quiet).

Hey Leaf! First off welcome to mylot. Secondly, that is one of the best ideas for a Sunday I have heard. You can definitely start your week off rested that's for sure. As I was growing up, Sunday dinners were the best! Roast beef, mashed potatoes, green peas, and a lot of gravy! Then later on we would have some sort of dessert. Its nostalgic just thinking about it. Your sunday sounds just as good. I would gladly spend my day laying in my bed on my laptop. Is there anything better? I think not. LOL Happy Lotting my friend! dl

Hey Bluray! It sounds like a fun day. Especially when the next day is Monday. You dont want to do anything that is going to make you tired. Just a nice relaxing day of shopping and eating. With you loved ones. Sounds like a dream.... Thanks for sharing my friend. dl

Mostly I will go out with my friends to shopping complex. Sometime we will go to the beach. I don't like to stay at home on the weekend and sleep at the bedroom. I like to go out and do something.

I spend my Sunday on home. After I'm going to the church I'm going home to watch sport on TV. Because most of the time Sunday is the event of boxing. So I spent that day to watch TV sport and news from CNN and BBC...Have a nice day!

Since the time my daughter has had her baby I spend the sundays either at her place or she comes over to my house with the baby. Whichever way I spend the day baby sitting and enjoying myself with my grandson with no housework to do on that day.

don't let the recession or any other crises get in the way with what is important. It need not be expensive. there are a million ways for one to spend a good relaxing sundays, or not even sundays! at any day , for that matter. It all comes from the heart. We spend our sundays by just being at home with relatives, we watch TV, movies , do stuff together and chat to one another and play with the kids. What matter is that you have that time for yourself and for your family. Money "DOES NOT" matter.

Sunday is usually laundry and shopping day. Sometimes we go out and do something, a museum or a movie or a day trip somewhere. It's a family day for us too.

Oh dear! Sunday means children to me. I am a computer teacher and lots of children came to me in Sunday and I enjoy their presence and the ideas and the funny talking. In fact I may call glittering sunday made by those children and they enrich my world and wisdom and free me from the hard truths of this present world. They helps me to forget myself for a day and truly I enjoy that.

Hi dloveli, My sundays are the most laziest day of the week as I just get up very late, then have a late breakfast, then prepare lunch and take a late lunch, then take a nap, and then watch Television, then do other chores like ironing or prepare dinner, then eat and then sleep..........

When I was growing up, Sundays were very special. We children would go to Sunday School, my mom would make a hugh dinner, and have relatives over. We would play with our cousins and have a good time. We also would use Sundays for family outtings, going to the park, amusement park, picnics or visiting relatives. I really miss those days. Now it is just my husband and myself, so we usually go to church, I cook, and my husband is glued in front of the TV all day. How boring!!!!!!!

I know that Sundays are supposed to be special and you're not supposed to work but usually it's just like any other day. I remember when I was growing up at my Dad's it was more of a special day, we'd often go to church and then just spend the rest of the day together as a family. ~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]
