Sunday Mornings

Sunday is family time for us.

If #1 son serves mass, then he & I get up early so we can make it there before 8am.

If he's NOT serving mass, then I sleep. 

I love Sunday morning sleep. 

I will usually sleep until 9:30 or so.  Then I will sip coffee and get ready to go to mass at 10:30.  Or 12:15.  Depends.  Sometimes I am even so lazy that I wait to go to the 6PM mass.

I love being Catholic.  What other tribe gives you so many scheduling options?

THIS morning I had other plans.


I was gonna go out to the Island and do a Mimosa Run.  (For those of you not from South Texas -- HI NICKI! -- North Padre Island is part of the Corpus Christi city limits.  We have to cross a bridge to get there.  Vic has a new facility there)

V-Fit put on a Mimosa Fun Run this morning. 

I love fun runs!  They are so fun!

This time we had a choice of running 5 miles or 10 miles. (MILES?  WTF?  What happened to 5Ks?).  The run started at 7:15.  AM.  On a Sunday.

I had every intention of participating.  After all, I ran over 6 miles just 2 short weeks ago.

I planned to get up at 6am, on a Sunday, head to the Island, run 5 miles, be done by 10am, go home, take a shower and get to mass by 12:15.  Fun!

That was the plan.

Unfortunately. . .

I didn't get up at 6.  I didn't get up at 6:30.  I wasn't awake by 7.  I didn't get up until almost 10am. 

I hope there are enough Mimosas at that fun run to make Vic & Gabe forget that I wasn't there. 


  1. You are right, Sunday morning sleep is the best!


    Sunday mornings are the BEST. It's that last little grasp of weekend before you've gotta start thinking about the week ahead.


I LOVE to read comments. Seriously. I check them every day. Insecure? Maybe.
