Blogging just for bloggings sake

I went private, not that anyone would know, since I did not announce or invite anyone, I am a reclusive person, I enjoy being with people but only if they want to be with me, I have serious issues, i am terrified of rejection.

This past month has been hard, I have been rejected by 2 people who I thought would always love me, no matter what. it hurts.

We have a new son, his name is Sione, he is 19 years old, and is the most honorable, honest, hardworking and respectful boy I have ever encountered.
He is living with us to prepare for his mission, we are looking for work for him, work that he can be surrounded by good mentors and teachers, and he can meet peers or friends who will help him reach his goals.
We truly love him, he has become a part of our family.

We are into a routine, Madi wakes for seminary at 5:30 and I wake at 6:30 I go running/work out and when we both get home we prepare breakfast, and have devotional.
The older kids pair off with the youngest ones and do lessons, reading science and art. then the older ones are off to do their own personal study time.
We are usually done by 11 a.m. then we get chores tackled and...boom boredom sets in.... I am not a creative person, I hate messes so crafts are out, I don't eat sugar so baking is out, I have no gas money so going out is not an option, that leaves reading, playing outside, and bugging the mom.

Today is one of those days, the work is done, and the kids are bored, so they keep asking me for this & that, I would love to crawl back into bed and sleep until next week, but that is not an option, so we keep on plugging.

Yeah, you sound depressed. Go for a walk! Take the kids out around the yard and have a contest to see who can bring in the most ticks. Have a dance party. Teach your kids line dances and country swing. Do more school- the fun stuff. Let them make messes to be creative- and then have them clean them up- Then you have less time to worry about filling. Start making homemade Christmas presents. (I wish I had started in July.)

Oh! Don't forget family circus! My kids love it when I do it with them!

And if all else fails- have them write letters to family members far away while you take a nap!

Or you could just call me and we'll chat about nothing in particular and laugh like schoolgirls.

Is my new nephew coming with you to Utah? I'd love to meet him.

Ooh- You could have Sione teach everyone some slap dances- or how to use the fire batons! I'll be expecting a show when you come. We'll keep the hose on.
