I'm bored. I hate saying that. But I do think that I am bored. I'm not home, I'm housesitting over in Mandurah, 40min from home. It is cold, it's wet, raining. I keep thinking of all the snails I could be searching for but in reality, if I was home, I would more than likely be on the computer. Espesially if it was wet and cold like it is here.
I could get in the car and drive 5 minutes and be in central Mandurah, shops, forehore, eating places. But I did that yesterday and have no wish to do it in the wet and cold. I could, have been, reading blogs and websites, Facebook. I have watched a few clips on Youtube. But I am not getting out of it anything that I do at home. And I think I know why. At home people, husband and son, others, say that I am always on the computer. Sometimes it does seem that way but it's not true. I will go out into the garden and pull weeds, pick food. I will chop wood. I will sweep the floor, make the bed, wander around the yard...there is lots of things to do. Sometimes I even think about doing some housework! I might read, might not. I think the fact that I could do any of that makes it less boring. Even if I don't actually do do any of it. Know what I mean?!
This house is big, our house could nearly fit into the main bedroom area I think. I should find a tapemeasure and check that out as I do wonder. It is clean, tidy, nothing needs doing. The dog gets taken for a walk a few times a day, short walks as I have shinsplinty shins and too much hurts them. The outside is basically no maitenence, it looks good but there is nothing to do out there. I might pick up dog poo later on when it stops raining!
So what could I be doing? I want to finish the book I have been reading for the last few weeks. I will do that today. I could bake a cake or make some biscuits but I don't want the kid here to have any! I wont give treat food to someone that swears at me or wont do any of the things his mother expects him to. And I don't need them. I could watch TV but daytime TV doesn't do much for me and I can't find any DVD's to watch. I could watch something later on on Youtube...
It is nearly 11:30, I will take the dog for a walk, come back and have some lunch, decide what is for tea and start preparing it, finish the book...and I will need a plan for tomorrow otherwise I could be in the same boat.
I rarely get bored, I think it's silly and you should just find something to do...I don't like it!
Do you sometimes get bored? What do you do if that happens?
