My Boring Life

My life is really boring right now.

But you know what? I am so ok with boring.

I haven't been blogging because nothing interesting is happening. When people ask me what's new, the answer is always the same: nothing.

In the past few weeks since Leland and I have had nothing going on, I have realized that I really like my boring life. I like going to work, going to the gym, and then coming home and making dinner with Leland, followed by some cut-throat games of Mario Kart Wii. On the weekends we have been staying in, maybe having a few friends over to play some games. Though those times are fun, I don't really get any good stories out of them. They are just some relaxing evenings spent inside.

We are getting ready to go out of town for the weekend for a wedding and last night Leland was coloring my hair. We were getting a little annoyed with each other because I thought he didn't know what he was doing and he thought I was being bossy, but even through the tension, I enjoyed doing nothing with him. I liked that we were together, just being us, and not really doing anything all that cool or exciting. And though we have a very long list of things we need to do tonight before we leave tomorrow morning, I am looking forward to doing chores with Leland. It will just be us, living our boring life, and I am very ok with that.

I know exactly what you mean! Sometimes I just really enjoy being boring with the boy I love... It makes me feel like I'm really living life how I should be! And it can really be fun in it's own way. It's a new, grown up kind of fun :) ENJOY!

I hear you LOUD and CLEAR!!! Have fun at the wedding!

Boring is better than exciting most of the time! LOL

Your day sounds RIDICULOUSLY similar to mine! Work, workout, dinner, put baby to bed, either read, watch TV, or play intense games of Donkey Kong on the Wii. And you know what? I honestly wouldn't want it any other way. It's so peaceful and almost annoyingly perfect.

MiMi said...

Having nothing going on is a blessing, for sure. I love that you love to just hang out with your man...that is awesome!

I like boring...until it gets boring. I consider it down time. Time to recharge the batteries for the next event.

Those laidback times with my hubby are some of my favorite times! Nothing exciting may happen, but it's still so comfortable and enjoyable to just be together.

I wish I could say nothing is new with us, but I feel like there is so much going on that I haven't had time to update my blog in forever!!

Amy said...

It's nice to slow down some times and not be so busy. Enjoy it!

Have fun on your weekend getaway;)

Sometimes boring is good.
In fact I can't think of a time when boring has been bad for me.
Gee, maybe I'm boring.

I would have to totally agree with this post! I love our boring life, and just hanging out with my husband. As you can tell by my blog (if you still read it :)) I've got nothing too exciting going on besides growing a baby. And I totally love it that way!!
I go to work, go to the gym, go home, cook dinner, hang out with the husband. Gotta love it :)

I feel the same way Alli! I have not been blogging much, maybe once a week. I've not been reading other blogs that often either. Like you, I'm just living my life and taking pleasure in the little daily things happening. I think it's great! Don't worry about not writing.... Life your life! And eventually you will have something to say and share. Then it will be more special and more interesting b/c you didn't write just to write. You were out living and experiencing so you could tell about it later! Big hugs to you!

I'm so enjoying my boring life these days too - going to the library, park, grocery store, coffee shop, etc. Same old things with friends and family who I love. Life is good, even when it's boring! :-)

Sometimes you just need to do nothing to feel like you are doing something with the person you love. Have fun doing nothng, but hurry up and start blogging again!

Isn't that sweet? That's precisely how I feel about my boring life with Jason. :)

Feels good, huh?

Stacie's Madness said...

i don't know what i'd do with NOTHING to do. our schedules are soo overwhelmingly busy...that I don't know what down time would even feel like or if I'd like it.
yeah. I probably would like it a little. :)

Bird Shit and Baby Caca said...

boring is good sometimes...I do need to get out though. Haven't done much since Christmas

McVal said...

That sounds so sweet! I think the only time my hubby and I spend time together is either in bed or on a very rare date... where we talk kids of course.
It would be so nice to just have a boring night some time... :)

Boring is good. Much better than the melodrama roller coaster. Have fun at the wedding!

Cathy said...

Yep, pretty quiet at the Antsy Pants household too. Work, gym, dinner, crappy tv via netflix. Every once in a while we'll do something fun, but we haven't been very crazy lately.

Krista said...

Oh, that sounds so awesome! I long for that comfort and ease with a partner. Someday my prince will come! ;o)

Leland was coloring your hair? I love it! Derwood once gave me the best highlights!

Vodka Logic said...

Boring is nice but I'm ready for some fun. Too much work makes Laura a sad girl... lol

Aubrey S. said...

I can totally relate to that feeling though I do miss your regular blog posts. Have a good time at the wedding this weekend, and be safe in your travels.

Intense Guy said...

I hope your hair came out looking marvelous!

Things are about the same for me - duller than dull... nothing for me to blog about. And no sex meter to update (don't forget to reset yours!)

Michelle@DomesticationoftheSingleGirl said...

I'm giggling at the idea of Leland coloring your hair. True love. :D

That's me when I'm not blogging. Just...living. Boring. Normal stuff. Nothing. So I know exactly what you mean.

I owe you a Christmas card. You and the rest of my family. I'm apologizing to you but not to them. A-cuzza I LIKE you.

;D
