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.
Thank you to every one who has read my blog and commented on it. This is still new to me. I am looking forward to visiting your blogs as well.

I just got done dropping Christian off at school. He is in Kindergarten now. I am still not quite sure what to do with myself while he is gone. I am so used to having him home. The other day I went on a field trip with him and his class to the apple orchard. I always try to prepare myself because little kids are curious and have tons of questions about my disability. The first question was, "did you break your arm?". We had four kids in our group. On the bus ride there the little boy i was sitting next to told me i had yucky teeth and did i ever go to the dentist. It is funny what little kids say. The field trip was a lot of fun. I guess I better go for now and get some laundry done or something. Not that I really want to.
