How bored do you want to be?

Here was my benign weekend rundown:

Friday night: bored. Really really bored. Frighteningly bored. Bored enough to put stuff on Ebay. So far, two things are selling. Ooo, eee, ooo, ahh.

Saturday: Check this post.

Sunday: Completely non-eventful. Just drove around Philly, went to Oxford Valley Mall, got caught in a nasty thunderstorm, and had ice cream at the local Dairy Queen.

Monday: Car in the shop, food shopping, went to Barnes and Noble, and then the Willow Grove Mall. All with the Dinkmeister. She is the one who must be obeyed.

Tuesday: Independence Day! Fourth of July! Whoopdee-friggin-doo. I could care less why I'm not working just so as long I'm not at work. They can give me off for Groundhog's Day for all I care. Wait. I might actually like celebrating that one. Anyway, Independence Day was never a big deal to me. A family or friend BBQ and the occasional fireworks display. Whatever. No fireworks this year unless you want to count the fight I had with Geo (don't worry, we made up an hour later). So I went to a friend's house and ate and drank and I came home. Yep, that was it.

And today, it was life as usual.

Life, family et al.

Pax and I are going to visit Punxsatawney for Groundhog Day one of these years. We both like those non-holiday holidays, the ones with no gifts or family dinners.

Merci ~ Hey, lady! You know I'm thinking of you and Pax these days with the NJ shutdown.

As for Groundhog Day, take me, take me!!! It would be a blast! Just like in the movie, we'll sing songs and keep warm by the fire and sing more songs ... cause everyone around us is a bunch of hicks. Heck, I'd fit right in!

I reckon you managed to fit a fair bit into those 5 days, despite being brain-dead bored on Friday night that is lol

You know, if there's one thing I am going to have to do when I get to England or next time I visit the's going to be to visit a damn IKEA store! The amount of times I read about people being addicted to IKEA stuff...well...I need to find out WHY? But mostly I need to see what I can buy there for me lol

I love the way your daughter jumped from bed to bed testing them out, but I totally love more the way she was putting her hands on her face and saying "Oh my...". You know what you've done don't you? You've breed another IKEA addict! lol

Did you change any diapers huh huh huh....

Laurie said...

Sometimes boring is good :-)

Maidink said...

Lisa ~ There is no IKEA in NZ? That's just plain cruel. I hope Dinker is another IKEA fan, that's how we're decorating the rest of her bedroom. And she is the biggest ham this side of the timeline.

Spikey ~ Nope. Mine is potty trained. Abby is what .. a month or so old? Tell her to get crackin'.

Laurie ~ Yes, but there is a big difference between boring and tedium. I was on the border of a coma.

Pisser said...

Oooo, eee, ooo, aaah :)

Sounds good to me. Cranky and I had a fight, too. I guess the 4th is a good time for it...hate loud noises, love hot dogs. Oh well.

You've got to slow down. This living life on edge is gonna catch up to you! :)

Rowan said...

awww, that sounds li ke a day in the life of Rowan's world. Too bad we're not in the same city....we could then at least do nothing together :)

Maidink said...

Pisser ~ The fourth is always a good time for food and noise. All out brawls, maybe not as much. Though exploding fireworks are a great way of bleeping out curse words when children are present.

Mr Fab ~ I guess I should be glad I didn't mention the grueling round of twenty questions I played with Dinker. Talk about stress!

Rowan ~ Sounds good to me. Actually, you're really not all that far from me. Not even 500 miles. It would be like driving from Philly to Columbus, OH. Piece of cake!
