Infusing FUN Into Your Day!

Infusing FUN Into Your Day!

Bill is Always Playing Games With Me! 

But I like it.  

Games were an interesting part of my childhood. They brought some of my best and some of my worst memories. 

Now they seem to trigger this happy place (even if I’m losing). It has been intriguing me. Living in 240 sq. feet when it rains hard day after day (and you don’t have cable and your internet doesn’t let you stream) makes games very attractive. 

It isn’t boredom though that makes them so fun. Obviously, with a huge game industry I am not alone.  

There is a bit of tension at just the right level - every turn has potential for little surprises, not knowing what will happen next. It can be a bit nerve-wracking. There is just the right amount of competition for me. It is fun to win and it is fun to watch Bill win.  

Playing games is a reminder that although there is a long “to-do” list, life is about fun, not just work. click to tweet

It takes us away from talking work and frees up energy. 

None of this is rocket science so why am I musing about it? 

It was usually a special night in my family when the games came out. Many of my associations (of being beaten severely by my brother Dan at Monopoly) were from the holidays. 

When I started hanging out with Bill’s parents I found them playing cards together quite often. This was completely foreign to me. I remember my parents taking turns playing games with me but not with each other.  

A simple little game can just put a bit of easy fun in to your day. I think it can change the tone of a normal busy week day and infuse just a bit of party. Why keep all the fun for the weekend? 

So, games may not be your thing but what is some activity that you find fun that you can sneak in to your everyday life? Something that can put your “to-do” list in its place? 

P.S. If you are a Monopoly lover like me, you might enjoy the Monopoly card game - a pretty quick easy version of the original! 

Until next week, have fun!

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established
blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but
I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about making my
own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
Thank you

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox
and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Appreciate it!

enlightening. I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this information together.
I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and posting comments.
But so what, it was still worth it!

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to
tell someone!
