Bored, so bored

The in laws promised a picnic. We've all been hungry since 11. It's 3. There are some condiments out...

 

The kids are bored. And getting squirrelly.

 

Dh is bored. I'm bored. Apparently we can't help make the food happen. There's not enough conversation to amuse us, but every time I start to read, someone interrupts. Plus, it seems rude. Sigh.

 

I need that little willy nilly emoji. Gah. The in laws are fine. This trip has been fine. I'm just soooooooo bored.

 

So, how's your holiday weekend?

It's boring here, as well! I'm watching DH, MIL and the dog all sleeping in the living room. The boys are playing in MIL's basement. 

 

We can't do any projects because it's a holiday. 

 

This is a bit random (but for a boredom thread, probably ok): you started a thread a while back(You're being a pill). It helped with the immediate issue of a kiddo who was weepy and whiney. But... then I had DH read it, and it has spawned many a conversation. It also caused us to consider moving from our larger city on the West Coast to the Midwest, where DH and I were born (and spent many a formative year gardening and raising critters). In any case, we're planning to move this summer. The random take-away: our actions have unintended and potentially far-reaching consequences. I think you deserve a snack for changing my world!  :001_smile:

There's food! I nearly came to blows with sil when I discovered there was a ton of food but they were basically withholding it all so they could have an hourlong discussion of how many burgers to cook. Sigh.

 

Ds said, "If I don't get food in the next half hour, I don't know what I'll do!" I felt that was a reason to just start taking food outside.

I keep going back and rereading that thread! It was full of wisdom. That's cool that it wrought so many changes for you guys. Wow.

I've had a lot of little tasks I had to get to.  I cleaned out yet another bird's nest in my dryer vent.  Did a ton of laundry. I cleaned up around the house.  I cut DH's hair.  Tonight the kids have their final drama rehearsal of the season (shows are next weekend).  Yep...practice on the holiday. 

 

Going out in a bit.  DH needs more pants.

 

Oh and I listened to DH's presentation for some user group he is in.  Two hours about documentation.  It's even less exciting than it sounds.  :lol:

I'm sick and have spent much of the morning in bed. DH and the kids are outside digging a trench for a conduit from our shed to the house - we need to wire in a new transfer switch for our generator and get electricity to said shed.

 

Are we barbecuing today? I don't know. Am I going anywhere today? Probably not. Am I bored? Yeah, a little. But I'm glad we are doing this all very low key this year.

… Dh just had an enormous eyeroll at hearing things haven't been cooked yet.

and another:  :001_rolleyes:

Hope you day gets better.
