I, of course, was catching up on Facebook (on my phone) when my nine-year-old asked for the definition of blasphemy when I realized this err. After looking it up, because I couldn't give her a good definition off the cuff (on my phone), I decided I had better catch up on my current affairs as well....sigh. So much for catching up on the latest gossip on which famous soccer moms attended their kids soccer games (e.g., Reese Witherspoon) this past weekend....
This all got me thinking that maybe Mark's genes have been shining through a little too much lately in my dearest firstborn...so I wanted to impress a few of my own influences on her....
- watched a movie while we did some knitting (multi-tasking),
- folded some laundry,
- went out to lunch
- rounded out our quick afternoon outing with a stop at Starbucks.
Movie. Lunch. Coffee. Three things guaranteed to make one feel better.
Whereas reading and writing...are bound to give a person a headache.
