So there's no school today, and Trevor and I are home all day. There are times when the unemployment thing isn't so bad! Anyway, Trevor has developed a new hobby. I dubbed this post "the Hobby Hobbit" and he really liked that. He's even wearing his Hobbit t-shirt today, which says, "What about second breakfast?" on it.
Last year, he started work on a pirate ship over at Henry's house. I think I blogged about it..here. Anyway, he's almost finished with it. Like, months and months later. And suddenly he's distressed that he doesn't have the proper backdrop for it.
So he's making one.
Well, he's unemployed and bored. You can only look for a job for so many hours a day I suppose. Anyway, he tells me on the phone that he made a dock for it. And then he started a little house. At first I was like, "Whatever" but then he really got going on it, and I have to admit it's pretty cute. He's so good a little detail work like that. I think he misses working with his hands, ever since he stopped being a jeweler. He found these tiny rocks at his dad's house, and pain-sakingly glued them on.
Is there a career where you can get PAID for this kind of monotony? Let us not forget that he did similar meticulous things for this costume.
My sister Jen says that for us to find Trevor a career that really suits him, we need to find what he's good at. Um...is there a way to make money doing this? Probably not. So we're back to square one. Ah well, I told him to enjoy his model-making while he can. Once Afton gets here, it might not be so easy. We're a little bored today, but trying to enjoy it--it could be our last long boring "nothing to do" day for a while, right?
