Amie asks a couple of doozies:
1. Read any good books lately?
I did! I did! Pick me!
Flames of Resistance was very, very good. I downloaded Anna Karenina - can't help but be intrigued, as the movie trailers look ridiculously good - and although I'm just at the beginning (35 pages is NOTHING) - it's pretty good. I read a couple of freebies. Most of them were so stupid that I could totally see WHY they were freebies. But the above Flames was a freebie - a fluke, but very good. Before I Fall was good. On the "To Buy as soon as I get some Cash" list, which means I read the sample and liked it enough to fork out the dough - Year of Wonders, Escape from Camp 14, and Call The Midwife.
Which is a new series on PBS that I LOVE.
2.What is your current favorite workout? Zumba?
Yes. I love Zumba. It's fun, it's dancing and it's crazy sweat producing. It's also not happening as much as I'd like it to - my new job often goes into later hours and it's not feasible for me to get there always. I'm trying to pick up the walking and thinking that I might try to join a gym in which one of the teachers holds Zumba classes in the morning. I love where I go - I have a few really good friends - but it's also a crazy amount of Le drama and this mama has plenty of drama in her life - she doesn't need you to bring yours with you.
I keep seeing people run, now that the weather is cooler, and I miss running. I miss my calf muscle hurting less, though, and so I'm ok with it - but I still miss it.
3. Didn't you say you wouldn't discuss religion?
I did say that - but we didn't descend into a religious free for all, so it was all good. I actually have another topic in the religious vein for next week. :)
4.Are you as sick of politics as I am right now?
Oh, golly geez, YES. We don't answer the phone unless we know who is calling. We've almost stopped watching the news as a family - I just don't have any patience for it. I do discuss matters with my kids, I keep up to date via social media (how could I NOT?) but I'm really ready for the election to be over. I've made up my mind, I'm not going to change it - just like the bulk of the populace. The mud slinging, the tantrums - it's not going to change my mind.
And Sonja presents a really good query:
My husband is out of work for the first time since he was 18 (he is 44), not by choice. He is home all the time, as am I, since I do not work at present. I am wondering if you can pose the question to the group - how do you deal with this situation? He will go back to work eventually, but since it is not a financial necessity at the moment (thankfully), he is dragging his feet. I am on the cusp of getting a job, which will help. As much as I love him, it is really hard being together that much.
My answer is the that everyone needs their own space. All of us. What say the brains in the bunch - you, the readers?
