I have noticed that children get bored easily. Mr. White and I rested all weekend, but the children were full of energy. I spent much of yesterday in the living room sitting near the wood stove. I had a blanket and pillow and snuggled up in my chair. I am old. And yet, I am young. But I don't have the energy and ambition of my teenagers.
I was trying to explain this to Nicole (21) the other day. She wanted to know why we old people just spend a normal routine at home and are happy about it. It sounded boring to her. (smiles) I told her that it is like a long day of activity. You wake up early, get plenty of things accomplished, have an adventurous time with lots of things going on, and then, late at night, you go home tired and want to rest. This is like our advancing age. When Mr. White and I were young and active, it was our morning. Later our adventures came as we raised the children. Now it is our night time. We are tired and resting. And it is pleasant.
