Sunday Evening Routines

Sundays are church days for Dimitris and me. We are at King of Peace most Sundays unless we are out-of-town. After the worship service, we grab something to eat on the way home, frequently a Whopper at Burger King. Dimitris then communicates for an hour or so with his mom and sister, either by phone or by Skype, while I spend much of the afternoon watching three of the national Sunday news broadcasts from NBC, ABC, and Fox. After dinner, we watch both the local and national news before beginning a movie on DVD or a Rays baseball game. This past Sunday, our routine changed when we learned that the Rays had played and lost to the Texas Rangers in the afternoon. When we switched on the evening news, we found nothing but a NASCAR race being broadcast that had preempted both the local and national news. Now, we had to make a decision in regard to how we were going to spend the rest of the evening until bedtime. As a result, we ended up watching two old episodes of the “Dick Van Dyke” show, having a bowl of ice cream together at 8:00, and then splitting up to do our own things: me, listening to a recording of “Victory at Sea;” Dimitris, checking out how to improve his YouTube video creations. We went to bed grateful for not having to spend an evening alone and thankful that we have each other for company.
