BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?



We are having so much fun with our new Wii Fit that we finally found. As each person finds the games they like, they unlock new areas. I like the step class and the tilt table and am beginning to like the Yoga quite a bit too. Daughter likes running around the island and boxing, son is amazing at balance games and skiing - slalom and jumping. For me, it's good to start getting moving again and now that the snow is just about melted here, getting moving outside will hopefully become more of an option.

In reading, I am in Lebanon during the civil war and it is a dangerous place, partly because there are so many boys running around playing war with the grownups that you never know who will be a potential killer. War books are so sad at how they destroy the lives of the citizens just trying to make a living and get their supper ready. (DeNiro's Game, Rawi Hage)

Where is reading taking you today? Leave a comment, make a post, spread the word.

  12. I'm currently in New Mexico, but we're working our way west along Route 66. My husband and I are both in our 80's. I've got terminal cancer and he's got alzheimers and doesn't know who I am part of the time. He can still drive though (as long as I handle the directions). We've pretty much run away from our kids and the doctors to take one last vacation together in our small RV.

  14. In Yorkshire, England in the 1950s. Everyone seems very brainy and talks about scientific and arty things in a way that only happens in novels.

  18. I'm trapped in ice in the Arctic. But in the book I'm reading... oh wait, that is the book I'm reading. Sigh. Dan Simmons' The Terror.

    Could be worse. Could be in a Lebanese civil war.
