Soooo Bored...

picnics

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...

Ugh. I feel your boredom, and share it too. I just can't get going on anything, don't wanna, can't get excited about anything right now. Blah.

I know it will change, it always does, so hang in there! Maybe when school starts...

When I get bored with the torch (gasp, ok, just tired of my current projects & lacking inspiration) and I'm in the same boat as the kids, I find a good trip to Home Depot helps. A new light or faucet relieves a few hours of boredom. Sometimes.

Hey, go play with your new camera!

You're bored because I've been gone!! :) We'll be home tomorrow afternoon/evening. But it sounds like you might have already become "unbored."

See you soon!

Kerry,
this post made me laugh...you have such a way with words! :-) I think we all feel this way from time to time. And can't wait to see what you've done to get out of your boredom!
