The Friday Four, Part 88


So Gene and I decided to join a gym.  Now, I'm not the kind of person who just drops in and pumps iron or jumps on a treadmill; I need a scheduled time and a specific purpose to get myself motivated to get into workout clothes and actually go.  Fortunately, the gym we joined has classes: weightlifting, step, kickboxing, and...Zumba!

In my younger years I danced - ballet, jazz, and Latin ballroom - so it's fun to get back to those roots in a small way.  Of course, I'm not in nearly the shape I was back then, so this is pretty accurate:



It's fall premiere season and I've been getting sucked in to waaaaaaay too many shows.  Some are old favorites - like Castle and Modern Family and Person of Interest and Parenthood - and some are brand new this year - like Gotham and Scorpion and A to Z.

What are your favorites so far this year?  If you could only watch one - ok, let's say one drama and one comedy - what would it be?


This is the stack of books that taunts me every time I pass by my kitchen table.  All read, just needing to be reviewed.

That stack doesn't include two more books that I read on my kindle and haven't reviewed yet or the new children's book that's on my kids' bookshelf.  How is it possible that I feel more behind now with all three kids in school for six hours every day than I ever did when I had kids at home?  Sigh.


That's really all I've got for you this morning.  I woke up with a stuffy head and sniffles, so I'm going to take a hot shower and try to clear my head.  Here's hoping that's all it takes!


  1. Lots of people (mostly ones I'm related to) have recommended NCIS, so I might have to break down and watch it one of these days...
