How to entertain yourself

... if you're nine years old and waiting in a soporific line at the post office while your parents complete passport applications and swear that they're not abducting you and spiriting you off to Tasmania:

... if you're six years old and live in a place with nary a blaze of autum glory to be found (make your own!):

... if you're three years old, and the weather prevents you from fishing with your homemade pole at the neighborhood pond, and your backyard is one giant mud puddle:

... if you're a mama in need of simultaneous caffeine and comfort while your house looks like this:

What's keeping you amused today??? Care to share?

Oh my gosh, this post is keeping me so amused. Especially the 9 year old's contribution!

Hmmm. (Yesterday) For me, going to the gym by myself, reading a little more in my book.

And for all of us, reminiscing at the dinner table about the time my daughter received stitches in her chin and at the ER they gave her some medicine that was supposed to make her not remember (it didn't). But it DID make her goofy as all get out (At the time, I remember my husband looking at me and saying, "Our daughter is drunk"). Daddy's imitation of her "goofy" face was, apparently, hysterical - he had us all in stitches.
