Never get bored

My daughter recently discovered that she could do art all day long and never get bored. 

Basically, I am going to start forcing her to actually do art all day long because I want more cat pics like this. She forbid me from stealing this one because she wants to hang it in her own room. If it comes up "missing," do not look at any of the walls in my room. I swear it will not be to the left of my bed. 

Right over my new medal holder (thank you, Target clearance aisle). This hanging system is an upgrade from the three-hook system I had implemented before. And the reason the medals are in uneven batches on the hooks is that I divided them onto hooks by distance. The slim pickings hook is ultra runs, which you usually just get a high five for finishing instead of a medal, and the middle hook is the marathon hook. Either I go really crazy for marathons, or they give out the most/largest medals. I think it's a combination of the two. 

Now back to doing something all day without getting bored. My kids could eat ice cream and watch the Lego movie all day on repeat. 

I could eat Thai food all day forever and possibly not get bored. Lime, cilantro, and peanuts never taste less than amazing.

And, surprise (!), yesterday I figured out that I can go to a class about running from 8-5 and not a single time fall asleep or want to stab pencils into my eyes. If all goes well tomorrow and on the exam, I'll still have my eyeballs (hopefully maintaining the lack of desire to stab pencils into them) and start the summer off in coaching mode.

If you're considering taking this course and you see that it's in your area, sign up immediately. The class here in Birmingham filled up with a quickness, and I think it's like that everywhere. I've been wanting to take this for a while, but it's hard to make an out-of-town weekend training work with the family schedule. So it made the decision easy to sign up instantly when I saw it was coming here.

What could you do all day and not get bored? Reading would be up there on the list for me too.

Does your current job relate to your above answer? Is there a way to combine Thai food and running into a single job. If yes, I'm set for life.


  1. For as much advice as people ask for, maybe I should consider the class. But really I just want a trainer. ;)
    I love my job so much! I can eat Thai food anytime I want. How much winning is that?
    My children are all grown so I can spend hours at home on my day off doing whatever I want. I love that! Catching up on stuff around the house, reading, cooking....

  2. OMG, you said Thai food! Has there ever been a more perfect cuisine made for human consumption?

  3. I almost forgot to mention; my daughter approves of the art!

  4. Eating... I could eat all day and not get bored. And be outside...

    My job does relate (the being outside part, I don't get paid to eat). I love it :)

  5. I've really wanted to take that course and it is so hard to get into! Glad to hear it is interesting enough that no pencil stabbing is needed!

  6. Congrats on run certification! That is on my to do list.

  7. Ha! This is fun. I love Thai food too! We traveled to Thailand and I could have just eaten my way through the country!! Both times. Well, the second time I was pregnant and actually kind of sick so that put a damper on my face stuffing. and kid and art...the best to see them immersed in art!!
