Another day in the life of.....

I've been in a funk lately. It seems like all I do is the same thing everyday. Get up at 4am. Teach Seminary. Eat Breakfast. Prepare another lesson....keep preparing.....keep preparing....the reading assignments are really long lately....finish preparing. Do some housework. Eat Lunch. Practice piano....keep practicing (Christmas music - pretty hard). Check email. Check Blog. Run an errand. Fix Dinner. Eat it. Do dishes. Get ready for bed. Go to bed. BOORRRIINNGG!! Problem is - I don't even want to go do anything else. I tell myself, "Self, go Christmas shopping!" Instead I go grocery shopping for Thanksgiving. Yawn. They only have 4 turkeys left. Go to another store....buy turkey there. Go home. A week or so ago my husband and I were going to go away for the weekend. We were looking forward to going to the mountains where we could ride a train up the mountain. The train wasn't running. Even though they say it runs year round, it was on a 2 week break. It will run again starting Nov. 21 for what they call their "Polar Express". We went up to drive the jeep trails. They were closed due to too much snow on the mountain. We drove to another town and ate lunch and went to some tourists shops. Half of them were closed. We came back to the town we were staying in and went to dinner and walked around to some of the tourists shops there. Half of them were also closed. It was nice to get away and it was relaxing. The scenery was beautiful even though most of the fall leaves were already gone in the higher altitudes. Maybe the holidays will help.

Maybe it is the time of year because I've been feeling that way too. I wanted to take my kids on Veteran's day and do something fun, but none of us could think of anything fun to do. Well, I did suggest going to the city, but they didn't want to. We lead very boring lives.

Me, too. It must be in the genes. Which side of the family should we blame this one on?

Okay I was with you right up until you said the words "Polar Express" then even though my eyes kept reading my brain was plotting out ways i could go and ride it - sounds so awesome!! (i'm way too much of a kid lately)

That is usually my luck too...I wait for a long time to do something, and when I finally get out to do it, the place is closed. :)
