I can’t remember the last time I was bored.
I never get bored.
It might even be impossible for me to get bored.
I’m one of those types that always has more to do (or that I want to do) than I have time for.
A few weeks ago I was whining to my husband about this. (Actually, I was crying.)
Wht’s wrooooong with me? Why can’t I seem to find more margin in my life?
He told me that even if I had less “to do” I would find more “to do” to fill my time. That’s just who I am. I never will be a sit-around person.
You know what? He’s right.
I’m like htat. a do-er.
A million ideas sdn things and chores and projects and… did I already say ideas? and only 24 hours in teh day.
When he said that to me it didn’t make me mad. It atually helped me to relax a little.
This is just who I am. And as long as I can be who i am without stressing about it (key right tehre, folks) then everything will be just fine. Life will be full and I will be loving it.
But i can’r stress about it. I can’t. THAT will destroy me.
I’m reminding myslef this today as I just finished my dinner at 9:20pm. I’m pretty beat and the only time I’ve sat down today was to feed my baby. (God-ordained rests for mothers of littles, i’m convinced.)
And now the day is over – too tired to “do” anything today.
All I have to show for the day is a husband and two littles who have been fed and diapered adn hugged and played with. (well, i didn’t diaper my husband, thank God.)
And a clean kitchen. yay for hte clean kitchen.
Laundry will just have to wait until tomorrow. There’s always tomorrow.
Q for you: What do you do when you get bored? (Do you get bored?)
P.S. Judah was having a hold-me-pretty-much-all-day-long kind of day today. (Must be a phase, he’s had a lot of them lately.) It was tiring, but I eventually just caved, burned my list, and hung out with him. It was fun. Hanging with the littles is always fun.
