I'll give you an example of my nerdiness. Many years ago before we had children, the movie Apollo 13 came out. S and I went to see it and I was so amazed! I had never heard about this event in my life! We talked to our parents about it afterward and my dad remembered it very well. He talked about the early space program and I began to understand why my dad used to wake us up to see shuttle launches when we were younger. It had been no big deal to me--I was born into a world where man had been to the moon. But I began to marvel at the whole thing.
I also got confused. I didn't know the difference between the Gemini, Apollo, and Mercury missions. So, I started researching. I got SO interested in the early space program! I read autobiographies of astronauts, I watched movies that had been made, I looked up what few websites were available back then. I even went to our library where they have bound LIFE magazines on the shelves and looked up old articles about the astronauts and the space program.
So. Did you know I was that big of nerd?
(That was a rhetorical question, by the way.)
I'm thick in the middle of a topic of interest right now but I'm not quite ready to blog about it. OH but I'm going to! As soon as all of this stuff I've read has a chance to bounce around in my brain for a while. My head is swimming with new information!
But I will tell you that it's about women's clothing. And it's not the "pants are sinful, dresses are mandated from heaven" argument because I've already studied and settled that one a few years ago. I have found out some really interesting things and I think some of you might be interested in them too.
So, hopefully soon!
But right now: your Fitness Friday assignment, if you choose to accept it:
Things That Make You Feel Good
Yeah, yeah. We all know "eating good foods" and "exercising" make us feel good. I want specifics. What habits and things in your life make you feel your best? Maybe thinking this out will help us incorporate more of these things into our daily lives. See you Friday!
