Luvs, I can honestly say that I am never bored. I have so many things I want to do: paint, read, cook, surf the web, home projects....I never find enough time in the day to do all of them and never get bored.

When I get bored on the weekends, I like to hit the estate sales. I love to just nose around for great deals. You'd be amazed what people will sell for $1--dvd's, cd's, recent best-selling novels, etc. It's fun to go to a really high-dollar neighborhood and look at the kitchen serviceware. I have found soup tureens, unique individual serving ramekins, shell-shaped serving dishes, etc. that I just love. And everything is always so cheap! Drives my husband crazy, but I love it.

I have to agree with Karen - I rarely get bored because there's so much I want to do! Reading, writing, photography, volunteer work, gardening, cooking, visiting with friends, checking out museums and other activities around town - there's never enough time.

This weekend, for example, I'm meeting friends at an herb sale Saturday morning and we're having lunch afterward. There's an American Indian powwow I want to go to in the afternoon, a gem and jewelry show Saturday and Sunday, and an Indian (as in India) festival Sunday afternoon. And I want to go to the botanical garden while the azaleas are still blooming, and hopefully go to dinner with some other friends after DH golfs with the guys tomorrow ... just not enough time for everything.

I know what you mean. I get about 2 to 4 hours sleep, off and on, a night due to insomnia.
