We all love our kids, but let's face it: they don't always offer stimulating conversation.

I do Sudoku or Logic puzzles while waiting for the kids at the bus stop... read when I can... not as much as I would like.

Manda: it's when you put a bunch of smart people in a room and give them caffeine.

LOL I can't get a book from the library because I can't wander through trying to find one. I was very excited that my parents had a box of books for me when we visited.

One of my favourite places to go is my parents' crawl space: my parents have boxes and boxes of books, and if I open up a box I'm almost guaranteed to find something that catches my eye.

I read a lot. I also take a martial arts class three times a week with adults, so that helps. It's also amazing how beneficial a night out can be!

I get you -- some days I can hear mine sloshing around up there.

This weekend was great.
