An Ideal Day
Sundays in our household start out well, but often by noon both of us are in a funk. I was thinking this might stem from a mismatch in how we’d like to spend the day. We’re in agreement about coffee and paper, but after that, we diverge. I usually want Mr. Bunny’s help with some yard or home improvement project, he usually wants to lounge around. Neither of us wants to go grocery shopping. So we generally compromise, which results in neither of us getting what we really want. This weekend I suggested to Mr. Bunny that we give him an ideal day. That we simply do what he wanted to do instead of negotiating. Though I had to do the grocery shopping and didn’t get any yard work done, this plan worked out pretty well for me, too. We had brunch out, went to a movie, spent some time lying in the yard…not too shabby. It was almost as though getting to decide what he wanted to do made him more likely to choose fun things. In any event, my hope is that he will choose to return the favor some Sunday in the future.
Meanwhile, thanks for the awesome music recommendations! I look forward to making some new friends and chillin’ with some old ones.
