Thankfully, I think the last time I have been truly bored was around the age of fourteen. I always have many, many books I want to read and movies I want to watch and online types of things to discover.
My world has shrunk since I have been in the hospital but other than an extremely overactive guilt complex (how can I enjoy this book when my baby is in Olympia without her mama? How can I watch this movie and laugh when Telfer is trying to do everything, ad infinitum), I have had no problem finding ways to occupy my mind and time.
As you can tell from the photograph, my very wonderful in-laws may have sent me an iPAD. Absolutely the most awesome thing ever. And is that not the cutest chubby baby you have ever seen? Telfer was going to bring me a copy of Emma next weekend when he comes but guess what? It's free on the iPAD.
Books: Currently reading Lonesome Dove. I feel like a real Westerner reading Lonesome Dove in an NYC hospital. Take that, East Coast! Also, more short stories by Alice Munro and a Kathleen Norris re-reading fest.
Movies: Re-watching the Harry Potter movies. Molly brought me a few "classics" like French Kiss, Girls Just Want to Have Fun and The Cutting Edge. If you don't think those are classic, you probably weren't a junior school girl circa 1993.
TV: Keeping up with Friday Night Lights and Top Chef. And just for the record, if you don't watch Friday Night Lights, well, you are just missing out.
