Revved Up & Ready To Go!

I was late for my 8:30 a.m. appointment, so the trainer wouldn’t see me. I waited for 15 minutes, then I went and did my own thing. I did 20 minutes on the stair stepper, 150 crunches and about 30 minutes of other exercises. Tomorrow, I’m going to do the elliptical for an all over body workout and a little cardio.

I’m already sore, but it’s a good sore. I’m not even going to be a little sissy about it. I’m going to stretch and grin and bear it. Until next time, hasta la bye-bye.


Delayed Postings!

I don’t know if everyone is having this problem that I am. The posts that I have scheduled for the past four days have not posted or they have been delayed. Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there a glitch in the system?

**Also, I just noticed that some of my posts are set to private when I didn’t set it to private. What’s up with that?

Science Verse by Jon Scieszka

What an ironic twist of fate. Do you recall a couple of weeks ago when I didn’t like a Jon Scieszka book and David did? Well, this post is piggybacking off of that. Now the shoe is on the other foot. I really loved this Jon Scieszka book and David hated it.

In the book he talks about dinosaurs, evolution, the water cycle and so many more . That’s the main reason why David didn’t like the book. He said that it talked about too many subjects. Though I loved it, I would have to agree with that. I think that was part of the problem. It’s too “old” for a 9-year old. The book is reminiscent of Math Curse (will do a book review on Saturday). In Math Curse, the child sees everything as a math problem; in Science Verse, the child hears everything as a science poem.

He fears that his teacher has zapped him with a SCIENCE VERSE. Here’s an example of some of his poems:

CHANGES (Sung to “I’m A Little Teapot”)


I‘m a little mealworm, Short and wiggly.


Here’s my antenna, Cute and jiggly.


Now I am a pupa, Squat and white.


How did this happen? I’m a sight.


Now I am a beetle.


What is this?


I really hate Metamorphosis.


Here’s the one that I love, that was much too complicated for David’s 9-year old brain:Read More »
