Thinking Thinking Thinking

March 15th, 2012 at 08:12 pm

I'm thinking about how to best spend my break. I need a balance between lots of fun, some school work, and some house work.

Today's oddness occurred during a class discussion before exams when a student (they're pretty much all juniors so about 21) asked what the word "spouse" meant. Does that seem really odd to you? Three or four more admitted they'd never known what the word meant. But I fed them doughnuts as an exam treat and just shook my head.

I also found myself shaking that head again when I saw the local fancy grocer had roasted brussel sprouts for $7.99/lb and the raw ones were 1.99/lb. I think for $6,I could turn on the oven and find some olive oil.

I welcome any oddball advice on how to spend my break---

    I think the oddest part about it is that they didn't think to look the word up. I sure don't know all words, but I would agree that one seems more common.

    I would say look for balance in your week off...something relaxing, something towards a project or long overdue task, a treat, a little work (if needed) and definitely try to enjoy some time outside if weather permits.

    Oddball advice? That might be fun to come up with....How about you make or buy a kite and go fly it! (No meant as the insult, Go fly a kite!) Take someone with you.

    Go to the Dells? Smile (If I remember right, you're in WI -- my brother was born in Madison. Smile )

    Laura--we were actually talking about the Dells. It might be the kind of stupid fun I need.
