We visited MM and GG last Sunday as MM had cooked crabs ( and I really enjoyed them..Yummy!) and had asked us over for lunch. We went over rather late as the little fella had to nap first. Not long after we reached, GG went off for his tennis game. Apparently, MM was not too happy about that as she feels that Sunday should be family day. Not that the day cannot be spent with friends but rather even if it is with friends, it should be done as a family. Amidst all the theories and principles that MM has, this is one that I do agree with. I always think that weekends should be family days and unless it is work-related, the time should be spent as a family. Of course, everyone needs to unwind and have personal time,but guess there are always the evenings and weekdays for that.
I do enjoy spending time with my friends too on weekends but I would always try to do activities that all of us can do. Or I plans get togethers at our house. Am sure there are ways to be sociable yet have family time.
