So much fun!

Day 16 of 31 at Two Writing Teachers!
"We've had a lot of fun lately..." I rub my eyes and push myself to sit up.  It's Saturday evening and I've been curled up on the couch in my footie pajamas for several hours, struggling to keep my eyes open.

Fun is a running joke between my husband and I.  In my family, you haven't had enough fun if you're not completely worn out at the end of the day.  Daddy plans trips so that every minute is filled with fun activities, so we usually come home from vacations more tired than when we left.  I inherited his trip-planning style, and Husband quickly discovered that my family's version of fun is, in his words, "exhausting".

Last night, we had a "feast" while watching the OSU basketball game with my parents (much more fun than it sounds!).  After all that fun (and food), we got up early for our traditional St. Patrick's Day celebration: pancakes with green syrup, music, and a parade!  Of course, all this was after a week of state testing at school and two weeks of spending my evenings supporting my students in our classroom challenge while writing my own slices.  All this writing and commenting is also quite fun by my family's standards, because my eyelids are getting heavier and heavier each day!

Every fun day though, it's always worth it.  Sleep will bring the rest I need, and the memories of all the fun we've had will stay with me forever.


  1. Funny - I asked my daughters to make a FUN list this week - we need some more FUN in our house. Maybe we'll just steal some of your ideas! :)

  2. Your family does know how to do "fun" and it is fun to read about it. I hope you get a little rest before the fun of St. Pats tomorrow.

  3. We visited my niece's family today, I think we were so much fun her young children did not get their naps. I wonder what happened after we left?? Hope you will get some sleep tonight!

  4. I hope OSU is doing well. I am hopeful for MU (MO) but of course they have to win the championship first. Your family does seem to have a lot of fun & mostly it seems just being together is fun. I love those last two lines, Jennifer!

  5. Sounds like your family is having a blast! Memories in the making!


Comments make me happy and I'd love to hear from YOU! :-)
