Sunday musings

I have a lot of time on my hands now, and I am finding myself quickly becoming bored.  So I have been making lists in my head of things I could do to pass the time:

1- Read.  I'm a big reader, always have been.  The problem with this?  The only new book I have to read is:

The Hunger Games (Hunger Games Series #1)

I borrowed it from Oldests' boyfriend.  I just can't get myself to open it.  I keep thinking, "It's a teen book!"  Not that that stopped me from reading Harry Potter....  Plus, I really should be taking my ACLS test, but I'm worried about it, so I keep procrastinating.

2- Sewing.  I used to always have a quilt or cross-stitch going whenever there was down time.  The problem?  I have 3 sewings in progress, and I keep thinking that I used to enjoy doing this with my mom, until she went crazy.  Now I don't have anyone to share it with.

3- Practice piano.  Ok, this one is doable, I'm just procrastinating because I'm frustrated with the Moonlight Sonata.  It's killing my hands and wrists.  But I'm stubborn and will press on...

4- TV watching.  Well, I just finished the first season of ER, but I don't own the other ones.  And Netflix doesn't have them on streaming, which means I would have to get each season ONE DISC AT A TIME.



5- Yardwork.  Already doing that.  Mowing the lawn, watering the lawn, watching the grass grow...

6- Hiking/biking.  Sure. Sure can, but I'd like to be able to do it with someone and not alone.  You guys have no idea how alone I feel right now.  I need people!

7- Get drunk.  Actually, this was much higher on my list 2 days ago.  Like #1 and I asked Husband how long is it socially acceptable to go on a bender.  His reply?  "We're going to the Brewery?"

Anybody else have some interesting distractions?

Remember, it's just a ride. (oh yeah, definitely trying to keep that firmly in my mind!)


  1. Ok, you HAVE to read Hunger Games. What is taking you sooooo long.

    I used to love to play Moonlight Sonata. But carpal tunnel has ruined playing anything on the piano. I feel your pain.

  2. Admittedly, I like the Hunger Games too. My holdup wasn't the teen thing, it's that I was worried that it's another Twilight. Thankfully, it's not.
