My kids have watched Kung Fu Panda over a dozen times and I'm still not sick of it. I'm hoping to memorize Jack Black's opening monologue soon...and speaking of kung fu, somehow I've twisted and bruised up my right knee--my old "trick knee" that had surgery years ago. IWas it when I was trudging through the icy-covered field to retrieve the boys from school Monday? I'm icing it down and trying to think of how I wounded it--and how to make it better by tonight's karate class which will probably be sparring. I can barely throw a kick right now on that leg, let alone block one. This afternoon I'll try a practice round on my New WaveMaster and see if I can return for my first class since before Christmas.
Speaking of ice, my driveway is so shiny that it hurts my eyes. And it's snowing again. I never leave my house anymore because it's such a hassle. I've become a hermit, going to her basement to unleash her physical aggression on a free-standing punching bag. I wonder what readers must think of me! And speaking of winter, I posted about environmentally friendly ice/snow removal at Eco Women. Check it out.
Perhaps the best thing to do is kick back with a good book--while reading blogs today I came across this:
Turn off your blog on January 8, 2009 to read a book, a magazine or even the newspaper. Anything on paper. Let me know you posted about Day to Read and I will list you below. Happy Reading!
To post and then read, or read and then post? What do you do? I mix it up depending on my mood--posting first, then reading other blogs makes my posts rather ego-centric and navel-gazey, a quality I despise. Reading first, then posting can make my posts kind of trite and copycat. But today was a great reading day--Minnesota Matron, Ecology of a Woman, San Diego Momma, Candid Carrie, Six in the Country--I enjoy a good round of blog reading. But tomororw I'm taking the day to read. A book.
