Busy Doing a Lot of Nothin'

I saw a friend I hadn't seen in awhile. She asked what was new. There is a lot going on in my life. Not much of it is new. We were at a party. The music was screaming loud. What could I really yell over the music that would make sense? Imagine me yelling over the music "My son started kindergarten a few weeks ago." "We are drywalling our basement." "We received some new office furniture from my husband's company." That wouldn't make much sense and she probably wouldn't hear me so I just said, "Nothing new."

She then went on to suggest some activities for me. She must have assumed I was bored. She suggested that I start selling items on EBay. Hmmm. Tried that. I do it now and then. Check. Got that taken care of. She then went on to suggest some more hobbies. Hmmmm. I must really seem bored (or boring). I think this lady is a stay-at-home mom too. She must understand how you can stay busy all day and not really have much to talk about. She must know.

After the party, my mind (as it always does) works overtime. I am pretty busy for a stay-at-home mom. I don't have much energy to add anything new to my life right now. But, maybe I need to work on my party conversation skills. I could add that to my list of things to work on. I will add that right to my list of making my hair appointment, playing with my sons, making lunches, cleaning up the toys, date nights with the hubby, phone calls with my sisters, visiting my parents and in-laws, writing this blog, reading as many blogs as I can get to, putting my photos in albums, organizing my jewelry box, trips to parks, making dinner and organizing my spices. Right, I will add party conversation skills to my list.

When you find out how you can improve party conversation skills please let me know. ASAP.

I am so behind in everything. You reminded me about my albums. UGH. My albums.,

I know the feeling. I am busy all day with household chores, appointments, and the ever needy toddler but when people ask what I have been up to I never have anything to say.

You hit it right on the dot...I am always SUPER busy, but when someone asks me what I've been up to, I say "not much"!
I need to work on that too!!
Any suggestions!?!? ;)

Oh, you mean asking you about Vegas doesn't constitute good party conversations skills on my part? Hmm. I probably need to work on that too. Could you send me your list? I don't have time to make one - ha ha.

Hi Indy! I'm retired and when I say I'm busy doing a lot of nothing,I really am!

Yes, definitely add that to your list...because clearly you have nothing going on and nothing to say!

I'm Not Talking About It, I'm Just Saying...
