Anyone Bored?

We have had a very un-eventfull weekend, just enjoying some time together ... I mean me and the computer, not Larry, LOL!! :o)

I don't have much time to post tonight but I will give you this:

Boredom: is a state of mind in which one interprets one's environment as dull, tedious, and lacking stimuli. There is an inherent anxiety in boredom; people will expend considerable effort to prevent or remedy it, yet in many circumstances it is accepted as an inevitable suffering to be endured. A common way to escape boredom is through creative thoughts or daydreaming. (Or even better check out the links below!)

Causes: People often experience boredom in circumstances where they are forced to wait (often at airports, in prisons, at government offices, at school or while doing homework) and in social situations where attention is demanded. This might be at school, at work (often in a meeting or presentation), or even among family when there is no natural motivation to pay attention. People who feel bored may lack the ability to change the situation or may lack the motivation to do so.

This link was put together by an adoptive parent. The video is the referral pictures of all of the children in their travel group and then pictures of their children 2 years later. VIDEO

This is something fun to pass the time and relieve frustration, ha, ha, ha! Have fun! (Sydney you will love this!)

Have a great week everyone!

Thanks for posting the girls then and now video. Our daughter was referred to us in August 2003 and boy did this video make both my husband and I tear up. We have two such blessings from China.

All the best on journey!
