Default What are you doing on Sunday?

Sunday is the International Day of Families: how will you be celebrating this event?

Well, I didn't know that Sunday is a special day so I haven't planned anything special for it.
Saturday is a special day for my husband and me (met 5 years ago and got married 2 years ago that day), so we'll be going to the zoo as it's our little tradition for that day. Since I'm flying to NYC tomorrow we'll probably be going to the Bronx Zoo.

Nothing special. I actually never heard of the Day of Families and am fairly sure my fellow countrymen have neither

So, let's take that "international" with some healthy dose of scepsis, ok?

I shall be spending time with mum, and I shall be ringing various family members on the phone. I had nothing planned either, but I decided that that was the best way I could celebrate the day with my limited means.

At the very least, a family meal would be lovely, no?

Ghyle, excuse me for saying so, but having to "need" an (international) family day actually seems a rather lame and sad thing. It induces the idea of doing something special once a year (like mother's day*) while we should do what you so sensible suggest would be a good thing to do this sunday, far more often. And I do!

Do you get my drift?



* the only extra thing I do on mother's day is not to give my mum the bouquet of flowers she gets from me now and then but at mother's day I'll always give her my age in roses... I started this about 25 years ago ad must say... I could have come up with better, less expensive ideas

It's Mother's Day here on Sunday anyway, so my fiance and I are going to the country to stay with his parents on the Saturday night, have breakfast there, then go across the road to my parents, with whom I will be driving back to the city to visit my grandmother for dinner, so each of us will spend most of the day with our respective parents/families.

On Sunday, I am planing to be in front of my computer Web-Cam,for a rather large happy IM chat with my Daughter and her family . We get together every Sunday thou, this one is going to be a little more special for me. This time I get to watch them eat a big lovely chocolate cake with ice cream for me, Woopieeee !!! At least I won't gain any weight from that kind of cake. I will be opening up my present(that they already sent)in front of them on the camera. Still don't know what it is, but little boxes are always sooooooooo lovely to get !?!

Well I didn't know there was anything special about Sunday, so I haven't got anything planned either. Might call my grandparents, though. And let my sister annoy me... hehe. After all, it'll be long distance - over AIM.

Uh...Sunday I'll be going in to work on a day off because there's a test session and judges need breakfast. I might call Mom, since it's mother's day. But she and my dad are coming the week after anyway.

I think I might see if I can get away with breaking off some of the purple flowers on a bush near here and bring them to Mom. And again on her birthday. If they're still in bloom. She loves purple.

Yes, Laurie, kitty cat. Jet, to be precise. Need to get him a few more toys, I think. And another kitty bed, so he has a choice. Among three. I have pantry full of food for him, though.
