Make Your Own Fun

Friday morning. It's the last official day of my vacation. It's been fun. I have pretty much had a lot of 'me time'. I've read, blogged, eaten yummy food, worked on crossword puzzles, gone to movies. I am a big believer in the mantra, "You must make your own fun". I think my mother used to drill it in my head. Up to a certain age, let's face it, someone else is responsible for your fun. Then as you grow you are given things to occupy your mind and at that point I believe we all must make our own fun. I find it very difficult to get bored. There's always something to read. There's always something to draw. There's always something to ponder. I am so thankful I have this deep within me. As times get harder, with gas prices rising and pretty much everything getting more expensive I will be forced to chill and make my own fun.

The kids are leaving Disney today and I'm sure it will be a shock getting back to reality. I'm so glad they had the opportunity to go and have such a neat time. I will be cleaning today and getting my clothes organized for my trip to Florida next week. I will take my laptop with me so I can keep up the blog. I so enjoy reading every one's blogs. I can see how people eat up time with blogging.

I will begin my tanning process. Of course, it's self-tanning lotion. I bought L'OREAL Sublime Bronze Tined Self-Tanning Lotion. Don't forget Streak-free. That's what it says. We'll see. I have been going the self-tanning route for a long time now and I'm yet to find one that is really streak-free. I will let everyone know how this works. I realize I don't have throngs hanging on this experiment, but I always love FT (Fashion Tips) and I guess I assume that everyone else does. I have always been in the school of "Tan fat looks better than white fat".

Okay, I'm off to clean for a while. Later.

Technonana,I am going to south Fla for a medical conference. I will pick up one of my girlfriends at the airport Monday morning then we are renting a car and driving down. I am not the lover of planes so driving sounds much better to me. We are both in our 50's, her being younger than me. I think you are too, but that's o-tay.I have been picking up sandals, capris and little things for the trip. I have enough reading material for a year. In fact, I brought so much over here and have only finished one book. There are so many things to do. Kay Kay must be a delightful person.What's she like?

Hi Nanatrish,
I just wanted to stop by and say thanks for visiting me so much and for your sweet comments. I promise I will be back more often, trying to get this working thing down pat. LOL!! I have been off work for over a year so it's taking me a little while to get back into the swing of things. Have a wonderful weekend.

Nanatrish, you sound like you have everything organized and under control. I'm glad too that your family members had a good trip at Disney, and you are right, the first few days back to reality...ugh.!

I like what you say about keeping oneself occupied, amused, and busy. You are bang on the money about that...there is too much around us to ever be bored, but it takes maturity to get the hang of that.
