    We get out of church around 1 or 1:30. Right now, I signed the little kids up for swimming lessons at our local VA pool (can you believe it's just $48 for 12 lessons? There's just 2 kids in each of their classes!) so we'll be doing that from 3-3:30 on Sunday afternoons until June. Without that, we usually just kind of hang out at home, relax, go to other friend's homes, maybe go out to eat or whatever. Once it's boating season (say from May or June through October), we'll go sailing if the weather is OK. When the boat is in the water, it gets used. :)

    I usually catch up on some housework and make sure the kids have all their homework done and papers together for the next day. Then I go to church early and pick out songs and practice them before the service.

    I stay at church after service and count the offering. I am the lead counter on one of two teams, we switch off every other month. When it's not my month to count, I go home and cook lunch for my family and whoever else is there.

    Hospital visits if necessary, review my preparation for the evening program at the church, and then bury myself in The Washington Post. Oh, and see if I can take out the trash for Monday morning pickup before my neighbor does his. Why are we in a competition for this? I have no idea!

    Depends on the Sunday. Some weeks it's just me and the couch. I forgot football games had 2d and 3d quarters.... Being bi-vo, madre and I will catch up on hospital or nursing home visits, grab a bite to eat and go home. Back in the day.... I served two churches at the same time with no evening service at either (that was a long nap on Sunday afternoon situation). I had a single church with the typical SS, AM & PM service schedule. Not a problem except they liked having church meetings on Sunday afternoons so folk wouldn't have to "drive back to town" during the week.

    Bi vocational pastor...
    Not full time, but having to work another job as well...

    As for me, it all depends... after lunch, I usually put the finishing touches on Sunday evening sermon.... check out some threads here on BB...
    catch a few ZZZZs in the recliner.

    Then back to choir practice, Then church service.. then our family finally get's to eat dinner after church....

    Sunday afternoon WAS for relaxing in front of a football game, now sadly the season is over so I am sure my wife has saved up all the things I never got around to during football season!

    Have I mentioned lately that the NEW YORK GIANTS WON THE SUPER BOWL!

    Sunday afternoons become boring days of sloth after football season.

    I typically spend a lot of time on the computer. Usually getting next week's bulletin started and sometimes working on the church newsletter. And I try to every Sunday go spend some time with my dad, who is in the nursing home.

    Here lately though, I have been doing a lot of sleeping, mainly due to the pain management meds that I am on for my back.

    Watch NASCAR - Football - Baseball - in that order of priority - and frequently nap - whether or not I want to!

    This Sunday will be the Daytona 500 - and the nap - not that I want to nap - but it always happens!

    I wasn't really able to tick any of them. If we're entertaining, then we'll have Sunday roast for lunch and open a bottle of wine and generally kick up our heels with friends; if we're not entertaining then we'll generally go down to the sea for lunch in a cafe and a walk in the weather's good, then come home and have our Sunday roast in the late afternoon/early evening. I might go to the gym in the evening.
