Sunday: Church, Sports, Politics and Friday the 13th

Sundays are weird. I like schedule and patterns and Sundays don't have either. 

In 321 emperor Constantine established a seven day week and designated Sunday as the beginning of the week (i guess i should blame him). The days to follow were called Moon’s-day, Mars’s-day, Mercury’s-day, Jupiter’s-day, Venus’-day, and Saturn’s-day.

So Sunday is the start of a new week, the day over 40% of Americans attend church (yes i looked up that statistic),when most NFL football games are played, the day golf tournaments traditionally end, the day all national and regional elections in Peru and Belgium are held (voting is mandatory in these two countries), the Sunday paper is always more detailed and includes a magazine, color comics and coupons and last but not least any month that starts with a Sunday will always have a Friday the 13th. 

See Sundays are weird. 

My Sunday was filled with none of these traditional Sunday activities. Even though I would like to start attending Church again. I haven't found my niche yet and therefore have not attended church regularly for over 4 years (a little thing called college kept seeming to sneak up and get in the way. not sure what the excuse is now.)

Today I cleaned, bought a reusable coffee cup, reusable plastic water cup with straw and batteries, went grocery shopping, did some early spring cleaning and cooked. Finally the scary unregimented Sunday is over and we can happily continue on with our precisely planned Monday.
