READY FOR REWINDING THIS DO-OVER DAY
When my children are bored, I put my hands on my hips with exasperation and say, "How can you possibly be bored? You have so many toys, so many books, so many friends, so many things you could be doing!" and then I start listing them one by one with my head cocked first to one side, then the other, until the kids run screaming in capitulation from the room to amuse themselves elsewhere.

When my husband is bored, I kick him out of the house, which is really where he longs to be. He's happiest doing something outside that involves either sporty motion or power tools.

When I am bored, I usually multi-task: picking up around the house, finishing half-done projects, surfing the web, reading a chapter or two. But right now, the house is spotless, the laundry is done, the dishes are put away, there's not much action on the interweb, and on top of a sore throat, I have the mother of all earaches, which caused me to wake up this morning feeling as though the entire left side of my face was made of pain. I called in sick, heated up the buckwheat beanbag in the microwave, stuck it on the side of my head and went back to sleep for several hours.

I feel a little better, hours later, but now I'm officially bored. Or maybe it's just that I'm too restless and foggy-brained to settle to anything. I'm sad that I'm missing choir tonight. And it's not as if I don't have things to do. I have plenty of things to do, but none of them seem appealing, and my motivation is at an all-time low. I shall go try reading some more and see if it helps.

Whee! I made it onto Liz's really great writing list! Yay! *laugh*

Hope you feel better soon. :)

I hope you feel better soon! Not fair to be sick on your vacation-from-kids. Then again, nice that nobody is asking anything from you at home. :)

hey, feel better soon...


Mosaic Minds is a brilliant read this month (as it is every month). Good work :)

You really get my smile going with your subject lines. I like how you do that.
Hope you feel better, including the boredom. If all else fails try chocolate.

this too shall pass

Sorry you are bored. Have you tried dressing up paperdolls are Paperdoll Heaven? Don't worry. Your boredom will soon be replaced by something else: love, fear, hunger, anger.
