I am absolutely fascinated by the answers you gave to my questions. I am also fascinated by the fact that my short-term memory is apparently very, um, short. Because every time I got an email alerting me to a comment, I had to open up my blog in another browser to remember what I’d asked you.
I find it intriguing that most of your houses must be immaculate. Honestly, I cannot even fathom spending two hours a day, every day, cleaning my house. I do maybe a half hour a day. And then every
couple few days, I will my husband will do a big clean that takes a couple hours. You may not be embarrassed to have people pop into your clean houses unannounced, but my kids immune systems are going to beat the shit out of yours.
I’m sad to hear that most of us do not get much time to ourselves. We should declare a national day of the week when we all take two hours off and refuse to do anything for anybody but ourselves. Say, Tuesday. At 8.
As for the bike riding, shoe tying, and pill taking, none of my kids do any of those things yet. I think the bike riding is because Alex and I are being lazy about teaching Sam. I think the shoe tying is due to the fact that no one makes shoes with shoelaces anymore. And the pill taking I haven’t started on, but Sam’s doctor suggested I teach him, and I was curious if other kids did it.
What was really interesting was how many of all y’all can’t or don’t like to take pills. Now when someone asks me what my talent is, I’m going to say, “Swallowing pills.” Or maybe I’ll call it my hobby. Although calling pill popping a hobby may cause other problems entirely.
Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. You have assuaged much of my curiosity on the subjects.
