When Daniel read my Mono/bored post he asked me a dumb question. "How can you possibly be bored with all that stuff going on?" Well, okay. I guess I'm not seriously bored. But it's hot outside and I'm not an outside person and so that is a double hit to my woeful self. I send my child to the mailbox so I don't get sunburned on my arms. I turn the A/C on when it's slightly stuffy in the abode. I really don't enjoy summer in Utah. I'd rather be in Alaska. Where it's 60 degrees and overcast. Oh well. I had my chance. Daniel wants to move to Hawaii because he lived there while a single guy and would like to just live there again. Too hot. Plus humid. And milk is like $7 a gallon. Nope!
Anyhoo. I should just move on. I came up with a brilliant idea last night. Well, I was reminded of someone else's brilliant idea. I got some old popsicle craft sticks out and am putting together an "I'm Bored" jar. So when someone is bored, I just grab the jar and we pick a stick.
Brilliant! And when it's really really hot, the stick that says "Go for a bike ride. or..." Says "you pick" on the back. So they get to choose what we do so mom doesn't get super cranky in the heat. Or something. So I'm really not so bored as I am just boring. hah! I need to go find a jar now and make it cute and not so boring! Wish me luck!
