    Figure Skating

    I remember Katarina Witt always seemed like she finished her routines with a dramatic death. Then one year more girls finished flat on the ice than standing; I was happy when the rule was imposed.

    Yes to Giselle taking a seat. When the Aaron Rodgers story was published and he hotly denied it, some commentators were criticizing Aaron by saying that Tom Brady wouldn’t speak out like that. I found myself thinking of course he wouldn’t do it himself because Giselle would do it for him.

    Figure Skating

    Me, too. I have followed ice skating for years, even a little before Scott Hamilton. When my sister and I spent the week at Nationals for Tara and Michelle, a woman told us that we had now ruined ourselves for watching competitions on television, and she was right. When Elvis Stoyko became all the rage, that made it worse. You could see the writing on the wall that jumps, even failed jumps, were becoming more important than any sort artistry - competitors could win just skating from jump to jump without anything interesting in between. As the trend continued, my interest waned till it’s almost nonexistent now.

    What Are We Currently Reading?

    The fire is breaking my heart. I read it long ago and loved it.
  5. I remember so many times, even months after a baby was born, thinking I looked good and encouraging a photo only to see it later and laugh at how bad I actually looked.

    What Are We Currently Reading?

    Finished Bread and Butter but ended up skimming a lot of it. Started off entertaining enough, but quickly lost my interest. Read Grace after Henry and enjoyed it. Now starting A Ladder to the Sky for book club. How angry is this book going to make me? I hate injustice and bad people doing terrible things.

    A friend of mine was from a military family and moved all the time. Her dad was transferred to Germany right before her senior year of high school. She found friends she could live with to finish her senior year at home, but her mom said absolutely not. My dad needed to move for his job, and he ended up quitting and finding a new job rather than move us. It was considered noteworthy at his work because he actually took his children’s feelings into account.

    This Is Our Spoiler and Speculation Topic

    Not yet, but we’ve only gotten to the “you’ll change your mind” stage. I always felt an undercurrent in the online Rebecca hate was the fact that she didn’t want kids to begin with so of course she is making a ton of mistakes as a mom. In real life I have many friends who are childless by choice, and I have had many people assume that since I have children I will agree my childless friends are being selfish. I want Zoe not to change her mind and to be happy with her decision.

    This Is Our Spoiler and Speculation Topic

    I thought I read an interview in which a writer said they wanted a story in which a strong woman did not want children. I would hate to see Zoe change her mind after having very firm and valid reasons for her decision (plus we already saw that with Rebecca). I wanted kids and have them, but I like seeing other women make a different choice and NOT be demonized for it.

    I think our threshold was 4 5 pounds. It took our oldest 10 weeks to get there, then he needed an emergency eye surgery that kept him in another two days. They also moved him to the level 2 nursery at 8 weeks because policy was that a baby could not be discharged to home from the most intensive NICU level.

    In the aftershow Sterling and Susan were with a writer, and they were laughing to the camera, “We told you we weren’t going to break up, but you wouldn’t believe us!” The writer responded, “Randall and Beth aren’t going anywhere.”

    This is all so true, and I know I got territorial around my oldest. The first time I touched him (the day after he was born), the nurse watched me and then when I was done said, “You did it wrong.” Frankly, my eyes just welled typing that. I wasn’t allowed to touch him again for a week and didn’t hold him for the first time until after he was a month old. I watched all these nurses and doctors handle my baby for months while I could do nothing. If my mom (who was absolutely wonderful) had been in there asking questions and seemingly taking charge like Rebecca did (whom I like and thought did absolutely nothing wrong), I don’t think I would have handled it well at the time. I would like to think I would have caught myself and apologized, but it was a rough several months.
