Friday is one of my favorite days of the week – I’m pretty sure that’s par for the course for most people, right? This is the final Friday of the summer break for the kids – next week is Back To School week for them. There may or may not be some celebrating going on on that first day:
Of course the dynamic is a little different this year, since Little Dude will be going back to his brick-and-mortar school, but Princess Nagger will park her butt here at home to do the Virtual Academy. I’m looking forward to her not being bored, no major daily morning struggle to get her out of bed and take her to school, and her being able to work ahead and actually enjoy learning again. It’ll be an adventure!
It’s time once again for some Friday fill-in fun, the perfect way to wrap up the week and kick off the weekend!
From Ann of McGuffy’s Reader:
“The Friendly Fill-Ins are four fun and easy statements to complete. Ellen of 15andmeowing provides the first two statements and the final two are offered by myself. We try to make sure they will be fun to both answer and share. On Friday, the linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM. Please come back, link up, and share your thoughts!”
And away we go! Here are this week’s statements with my fill-ins:
Week 17: September 2, 2016
1. My favorite way to exercise is… There’s a favorite way? I kid, I kid! Actually, my favorite way is to use my fitness massager followed by walking for an hour (give or take) on my treadmill. The fitness massager is awesome – I heard about it on the radio while shuttling the kids back and forth to school last year during the fitness craze months, and had to look into it as I was intrigued, and ended up getting one.
It promotes and enhances blood circulation thus resulting in muscle strength, flexibility, muscle relaxation and stress reduction on your legs, hips, and lower back. I can tell you, it really does work – when I was sick and couldn’t work out for a while, I noticed the difference.
I’m also looking forward to finally using this:
It looks like such a fun workout that is different than the typical cardio. It’s described as: POUND is an easy routine to stick with because it yields fast results, is exhilarating and stress-relieving, and unleashes your hidden inner Rock Star. I’m in! I bought it about 6 months ago, but haven’t been able to use it, because I need to figure out which box my DVD player is in so I can hook it up to the TV and get to it.
I know, I know! We stream everything, so I haven’t had to hurry up to figure out where the DVD player is, but since Princess Nagger is going to need to do some sort of workout for her PE requirement for her Virtual Academy, I’m thinking I better get that sucker hooked up this weekend so we’re ready. She’s actually looking forward to trying this out, too, since it’s not simply running (she and I both have an allergic reaction (mentally speaking) about any kind of running…heh.) I’m glad that she’s actually looking forward to utilizing this workout doohickey as much as I am.
2. Something I learned last week was… Hmmmm… I couldn’t think of anything I learned last week, even though I’m a big proponent of you learn something new every day! I however cannot think of anything worth sharing. If I do think of something by next Friday, I’ll let you know!
3. I am sentimental about… Pretty much everything! I guess that comes with being a romantic at heart, maybe? That also no doubt plays into my whole pack-rat mode, too, because I never seem to want to get rid of anything that might have some sentimental attachment. Though I’ve sort of gotten better after our big cross-country move where we had to purge a lot (and by ‘a lot’, I mean tons) prior to the move, but I still have a ways to go on the pack-rat purge, but will no doubt still hang on to the things that have sentimental attachment.
4. Some people might find it surprising to know… My best friend and I signed up for an acting class when a Seattle talent management company was looking to add more people to their talent list. We had so much fun! Then the Navy relocated her and her hubby to Florida, so I had to wing it on my own. I still had fun, but it wasn’t as fun as having my best buddy along for the ride. This was my head shot from back then:
I got to do lots of extra work for movies that were filmed in Seattle, plus got to do some local commercials. Then I moved to Pennsylvania, too far outside of Philadelphia to continue pursuing that dream, so that fun stuff came to an end. Now that I’m back, though, I’ve been tempted to call them up and see if I can rejoin for more fun! I’ll keep you posted.
That’s a wrap! Hope you join in the fun! As a side note, we were off camping last weekend with absolutely positively no internet connection (believe me, I tried – even had my Karma with me to try to connect) so I’m way behind making the rounds for last week – I’ll be rectifying that later.
