Bored? Games!

There are two kinds of people in this world: those who like to play games and those who do not.

I used to play games a lot. I like playing board games, cards, games with dice, dominoes. My husband, however, is not a fan. He'll tolerate games if a group is playing, but he's not interested in playing with me when we're by ourselves. Well, he doesn't want to play like that with me! We're very compatible in nearly every other way, so I'm not particularly bothered that we don't see eye to eye on this issue.

My favorite games are Scrabble, Taboo, and cards. Prior to the birth of our little one, we frequently socialized with friends to enjoy evenings filled with laughter, drinking, and games. I miss those evenings, but I still have solitaire when I get a few extra minutes.

When I was a kid, I liked Happy Days, Snoopy Come Home, Simon, Risk, and Generals. Monopoly, Clue, and Connect 4 were also well-liked and I still enjoy those games. I would guess that some of the games I spent so many hours playing aren't even remembered by the under-30 set.

My son will probably be old enough to play simple games in another year or so. Candyland, Chutes & Ladders, and Cootiebug aren't exactly what I'd choose for my entertainment, but I'm still looking forward to playing these games with my boy. Who knows? Maybe we can even convince Daddy to play with us.


  1. We should have a game night!!!! My hubby is exactly the same way as yours, and I feel the same way you do!

  2. My hubby has been working so many nights lately, just pick one and we can probably play!
