Make My Saturday Sweet - Blog Hop #29

Today I’m participating in Janine’s
Finish the Sentence Friday” writing prompt,
so sit back and enjoy a good read!

Test Blog

One time when I was bored out of my mind, I…

picked up the novel, Die unendliche Geschichte (The Neverending Story), by Michael Ende, from off of my grandparents’ bookshelf. I was a child living in Germany and visiting my grandparents (my Oma and Opa). In those days there weren’t too many programs on TV and very few were geared towards children. Sometimes the weather was too bad to roam outside. I also didn’t have anyone to play with unless a friend came to visit, but it was a 2 hour drive from our home and from where my friends lived to my Oma and Opa’s home at the North Sea. German was my second language, but the novel was really difficult to read. Many of the words I didn’t even recognize. It took me several days, but eventually I finished it.

Since I got married and had kids, I don’t have time to be bored. My kids are rarely bored too, because they have more things and more good friends to keep them occupied today than I did back in my day. They also have daily chores, which aren’t hard to do, and this also keeps them busy.

Now on to the blog hop...
