A Boring Week in January


A Boring Week in January
Shortarmguy's Diary Entry for January 30, 2011



It's hard to write a weekly diary entry and try to make my family's life seem exciting all the time.  Some weeks are just dang boring and we don't feel like doing much.  Like this week.  Where the most exciting thing we did was play Ping Pong and make our dog pose for pictures with us during the game.



As hard we try to make it seem like we're having fun, it just doesn't work....even when the Ping Pong ball comes streaking across the room like Haley's Comet!



Miss Sheri and Avery grew extremely bored waiting for the ball to be hit toward them.  I kept trying to tell them there was no one there to hit the ball to them since Luke and I were taking their picture, but they just wouldn't listen.


On Saturday, things looked like they might be picking up a bit when we went to watch Avery play his basketball game.



We stopped by to pickup Grandma Linda to see if she could help make things more fun for us.  Unfortunately, it didn't work.


I thought it might help us feel better if I kept score for the game.  But then Avery's team lost and I kept blaming myself all day thinking somehow it may have been my fault.  Maybe I accidentally scored some points for the other team?  I just couldn't remember.



We thought doing a little shopping would make us feel better so we decided to go and buy a punching bag.  But then Luke hurt himself while trying one out at the store so we changed our minds.



We then decided to go and buy a couple Goldfish for the boys.  Things were going well until they decided they wanted one girl fish and one boy fish.  We spent quite a bit of time trying to determine which fish was which.  We finally just had the lady give us ones that had pretty colors.



Luke and Avery did do their good deed for the week when they joined their Church Group to volunteer for the Group, Feed My Starving Children, where they helped prepare food that is sent to starving people all around the world.  So they have that going for them.



Not only did they help some hungry kids, but they also got to wear these really cool hats!  Those lucky boys!!

Have a great week, everyone!!!
