When I was young, my mom always made sure we used the nice dishes on certain random nights of the week, and definitely on Sundays.

Just the other day I woke up at 5:45am and immediately started cooking, baking, doing laundry, picking up the house, working on real estate, checking email, and noticing I was way too energetic and happy for that early in the morning.
