Oh.My.Stars. I am so bored! LOL!!
I am sure you are hearing it enough for your own kids (if you are the Mom type) so, I am guessing you don't wanna hear it from me too. But. Ugh. I am so bored!! LOL.
I finished the rest of my must-do's yesterday and took the kids to the park to play in the creek. While there, the boys discovered a cave-ish place and went in to explore. They came out screaming having been stung by yellow jackets in an underground hive. Nice. According to the kids... we. are. never. going. there. again. We rushed back home for ice and Benadryl (thankfully, no one is allergic). Then proceeded to sit on the couch with my sister just staring at each other totally bored. And I fear there is going to be whole day of that today... not just an afternoon full.
I am not just bored with the kids either. I am bored with everything. I don't want to knit... bored with the project... I don't want to work... the time is always cut short by the kids anyway, so why bother... I don't want to read... book are dull, except for yesterdays, lol... I don't want to craft... I just want to whine until someone figures out a way to entertain me. Hey, the kids do it, why can't I, right?
Anyone have good ways of combating summer boredom for Moms, not just for kids? Tell me I am not hopeless... tell me I will be inspired and excited about something again someday... tell me I haven't fallen into an abyss of dull-drums... tell me... tell me...
