Oh, I am terrible at this. But continue to try to get better at it. I try to disagree without being disagreeable, but sometimes (often) emotion gets the better of me.

It all began with a record. A children's record.

I dont like confrontation or arguing so I tend to clam up and not say what I am really thinking unless pushed.

I politely argue my point and if they still don't get it I walk away. I don't like confrontation.

My mom. I'm in the medical field like she is and I find myself repeating much of what she said to me to my own children.

We've got tickets to see a musical - Crowns - and then we're going to dinner with friends.

Last night I caught up with a friend from Chicago that I have known for 24 years and haven't seen for 13 years. It felt like it was only last week that we last saw each other.

I spent the weekend shopping, making sundaes and watching movies with my 2 girls. We had so much fun. I also bought another bookshelf.

Tuesday's Question (March 8): What was your favorite board game as a child? Do you still enjoy it?

Backgammon and yes still love it!

Melissa (melissasd) | 779 comments Leah wrote: "Tuesday's Question (March 8): What was your favorite board game as a child? Do you still enjoy it?"

The only one I can think of is "Life". I didn't play many board games growing up. I do still enjoy playing it with my kids. I get them to play board games every now and then to get them off the electronic devices.

Wednesday's Question (March 9): What are your nervous habits?

Melissa (melissasd) | 779 comments Leah wrote: "Wednesday's Question (March 9): What are your nervous habits?"

I chew the inside of my bottom lip when I'm nervous or stressed. My dentist has gotten on my case about it. I also smoke.

I dont remember playing very many board games as a child. I'm sure I played Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders. Seems like I've played Scrabble forever and yes, I still love it.

Thursday's Question (March 10): What do you think is one of the most undervalued professions right now?


message 29: by Koren (new)

Koren  (koren56) | 621 comments Leah wrote: "Thursday's Question (March 10): What do you think is one of the most undervalued professions right now?"

Teachers. I dont think they get paid near what they are worth. After that nurses.

Warren Benton | 75 comments As a husband of a first grade teacher I feel she is highly undervalued and often over worked. But she loves teaching the kids how to read.

Parcheesi ... I could play it for hours. And yes, I do still have a game board, though I haven't played it in quite a while. Might be a good diversion this afternoon ....

Bad time to ask ... as Hubby is recovering from spinal fusion surgery and I am consumed by being his nurse. Gosh, I feel so sleep-deprived, must be how a new mother feels.

But forgetting about that ... which I know will pass ... I'd say I'm at about a 9 in terms of happiness with my life. There's always room for improvement, but in general I'm quite happy.

Sunday March 20 Question of the Day - If you could become invisible for a week, what would you do?

No. It seems to be that the older I get the more invisible I get. I was at the food court in a local mall waiting to be waited on and the cashier started to take the person behind me order. I felt invisible that day. And that's not easy considering I'm no featherweight.

Oh, Sheila, that's TERRIBLE!
If I were invisible I'd make that cashier's life miserable!


message 39: by Warren (new)

Warren Benton | 75 comments I think something that could help all education would be a little parental involvement. Lots of kids need education reinforced at home.

I also think tenure should be done away with. If as a teacher you aren't effective you should not be able to stay in that position.

As the husband of a teacher, I think more pay because she works way more hours than just when she has kids in her room.

If even one person remembers a kindness I extended and is inspired to "pay it forward" I think that is an impact for the good.

Thursday's Question (March 24): What was your last impulse buy?


message 44: by Amy (new)

Amy Lash extensions for bar mitzvah. First time try! Not exactly an impulse buy, but a luxury buy. Love them! Don't I look gorgeous! Good for tired readers eyes - lol.


message 45: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (melissasd) | 779 comments Leah wrote: "Thursday's Question (March 24): What was your last impulse buy?"

Probably something for my kids. I'm very OCD and very rarely do anything on impulse.


message 46: by Tracey (new)

Tracey (trakka) Leah wrote: "Thursday's Question (March 24): What was your last impulse buy?"

Books! :-) I always say to myself that I DO NOT need any more books, I have enough to last me for years and then I see a good deal or another book I really must read.....


message 47: by Sheila (new)

Sheila | 362 comments Leah wrote: "Thursday's Question (March 24): What was your last impulse buy?"

Books, definitely books! I went to two book conferences in the past month and bought many, many books.

Sunday, March 27 .... Happy Easter!
What's your traditional Easter feast? Ham? Lamb? ....?


message 49: by Sheila (new)

Ham, potato salad, some type of jello salad, and a very simple Easter Bunny cake.


message 50: by Amy (new)

Amy Threw traditional post bar mitzvah Jewish brunch for Easter…. Bagels, lox/nova, egg salad, whitefish, and tuna spreads, I made homemade knishes, and they were delish. There was chocolate rugelah, a smattering of donuts for the 8 camp kids who stayed over, leftover cake, egg rolls, fruit. Oh, and bought Tom Brady Easter Candy… Gluten free and purported to have hidden 50 secret golden eggs within, where you could win up to $5000.00 and a signed Patriots Jersey. Figured it was our lucky day, so why not buy one of each. But no golden egg contained within. Gave them away to a gluten free family apiece. A perfect "easter" brunch, after the most spectacular and profound Satruday night our family has ever had. My holy child jumped on the trampoline all afternoon and played football and basketball with his friends and cousins, all in their lime green giveaway t-shirts. All in all, an amazing weekend, and the brunch just topped it off.
