A Boring Life

I got a phone call from my friend Shannon yesterday and we chatted a bit. I have to admit that once we started talking about how our weeks have been, I felt a little lame when I realized that the highlight of my week has been a TV Show. Now ok, the show is LOST and it is a really really good one but you get the picture.

On the other hand, when times get boring, it also means that nothing bad is going on. Every time I have ever felt that things were too boring and that life being boring was biggest problem, something has come along and changed my life in a big way and not all of those changes have been pleasant. Which doesnt mean that I think that change is necessarily a bad thing.

So...I am in a holding pattern. I am spending a considerable amount of intellectual energy on a TV show but I am enjoying it. I am doing all the usual things: I get up. I go to work. I come home. I socialize and keep my friendships strong. I save some money. I spend more. And ta-da it is boring life time and it aint so bad considering the alternatives.

yeah, i always hate it when people ask me what my hobbies are.
sleeping as a hobby seems to be frowned upon.

Yeah, apparently sitting around watching TV in one's underpants isnt considered a hobby to be encouraged either ;)

I always feel guilty telling people I spent the entire weekend engrossed in my hobby (digital scrapbooking, blogging, Painting, Photography the list is long and subject to grow without notice) at the expense of my laundry, dishes and pretty much all other household duties.

i feel like my life is a little stagnant too... funny that. The grass could alway be greener on our side of the fence ;0)
