I'm bored

I sound like my fourteen year old. He is always bored. I finished my laundry and straightened up the house so I thought I would write some more. Yesterday I went to see the movie Walle about the robot. It was very cute. It was also nice to have a little time away from the kids. I love them very much but lately I find myself longing to get away from the stress. My oldest son Daniel is now a teenager and we most often do not see eye to eye on things. He tends to think he can live by his own rules. I just get so burnt out from dealing with him.

I love to read a good book. It is my escape. I love to read non fiction. I am always looking for a good book to read. If you know of any let me know. I tend to get latched onto one particular author but after a while I get tired of that person. The latest book I have read is called The Betrayal by Ann B. Gabhart. That was really good,I read that in a week. It was about the shakers.

My other favorite escape is shopping. Even if I can not buy anything it is relaxing just to walk around looking at things.

Welcome to the blogosphere Marie! I know just what you mean here. Sometimes I like to go to CVS or Walgreen's and just walk up and down the aisles looking at stuff. The school and office supply aisle is my favorite. :) I guess it just helps me turn my brain off for awhile.

I feel this way just a bit when M is at the Center. Most of all though I am very thankful for some time for quiet. Enjoy the time! You deserve it. You would probably like the vampire books I am reading. The first one is Twilight. I think Mom has a copy and Mel took my copy.

I love reading non fiction too. I will give you some great ones I just finished. I will do it next time because I am in bed now and don't want to move. How is that for lazy?
I never saw Walle, but heard it was amazing. I can't wait until it comes out on DVD.

I can totally relate to the teen stress. I have 3 teen girls, but right now it is my 13 year old that is causing me so much stress/anxiety and depression. She wants total control, can be so disrespectful and will challenge just about anything I say. I keep wondering where my sweet little girl went!
Have a good night.
