Friday fill ins: Boredom, blankets and booms! we go!

1. I like to sleep under several layers of blankets. I like the weight. It feels comforting.

2. You're from the Midwest. Can't you distract us with some insight about crops? -- Jordan Baker, The Great Gatsby

3. I'd be willing to bet that my daughter will be "bored" sometime this weekend.

4. Thunder and lightning, fireworks, construction -- basically any loud noise -- scares the dog. She wiggles her way under our very low-set bed every time.

5. I'm fond of COOL summer nights. Did you hear that Mother Nature?

6. My kids whine too much! Does anyone have a cure for whining that doesn't involve duct tape?

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Indian food and The Last Airbender with my hubby tonight, tomorrow my plans include taking the kids to swimming lessons and Sunday, I want to sleep in!

Being bored is a kid's prerogative; coming up with some creative icky boredom buster (dusting under ALL of the furniture) is the Mom's revenge.

I'm with you on #1 - can't wait for Fall when this weather will cool off!!!!

Ha, ha, love Liz's response to kid boredom. I hope you were able to sleep in. Some idiot called us at 6:20 am so that was it for me.

Yes, thank you Liz! Great comment. I'll have to keep the dusting supplies ready! As for sleeping in... well, I had two extra bodies (kids) in my bed as of 7am. Ah, well.
