Good things are happening this morning. My laundry is going! John fixed the dryer. We still need a new one but this one will get me through until Sears can get in the one we want in gas. I will have clean towels! I will also be slaving away in the laundry room most of the day. But I'll be making my kid help some too. It's nice to have slave labor.

I also found my driver's license and credit card that I lost a week ago. They were in the pocket of my jeans, buried in that mountain of laundry that's been piling up. Yay! I'm legal again! And I don't have to have my sugar daddy with me to buy groceries.

So, what do you all do for entertainment on these short winter days? I've been bored out of my mind in the evenings. I scooped poop in the dark last night, but that didn't take long. I've been making a few things out of rope, but sometimes I don't feel like doing that. We don't have TV. We have a TV, so we can watch DVDs and stuff, but no network, no dish. Don't really want it either. Netflix is great. We watched Ghostbusters on the computer the other day, with their instant play option. The kids loved it. (Weird how much more puritanical we are now than we were in the 80's. Goonies is a good example of that too.) So, any suggestions for fun family indoor activities? Games you like? (We have a 7 year old and a 13 year old).

Today is going to be an inside day. The wind is blowing like crazy. It's one of those days where you know if you don't throw hay in the right place it'll just blow away. So no horsey fun. Although maybe I could clean up my feed area. I've been needing to do that for a while.

The kids have the day off so it almost seems criminal not to do something fun. I just can't think of anything though... Maybe I'll take them to the mall. For some reason my daughter loves the mall. And my son loves ice cream. And I love Starbucks.

Well, thanks for listening to my ramblings! And seriously, I'd love suggestions on crafts, games, anything to do to keep the boredom at bay.

OMG, Andrea, I could have written this post, except substitute washer for dryer! I made an emergency trip to Costco and bought their floor model. Just little old me hauling a washer down the freeway and then doing laundry all day yesterday and today!! Funny! Have fun with that.
