any suggestions?

As some of you may know, my extra-curricular activities are fairly limited in their scope these days. I was wondering if any of you creative bloggers would have any suggestions on how to ameliorate my mild case of cabin fever. Summer is fast approaching and barring act of god, it will prove to be fairly uneventful. Am an avid reader, so suggestions in that direction would also be duly appreciated.
By the way: that pic is not of myself and family. There is a baby in there!!! Amazing.

1., Take a personal holiday someplace that would be fun and exciting or make it a girl's weekend out if the child care is an issue.
2., Pick an author and read the entire body of work.
3., Write your own fictonal piece. You are intelligent and possess great style and character already.
4., Learn an entirely new style of cooking. This may involve a road trip, but road trips are fun.
5., Work on that electra complex that you were threatening a few days ago. I better stop while I'm a head.

Far too many GREAT reading suggestions out there for me to thow one out into the void without knowing your tastes, but some of my personal faves wouldbe "Post Office" by Charles Bukowski or "Foucault's Pendulum" by Umberto Eco (a far better, more challenging and more 'accurate' historical adventure than the "DaVinci Code" travesty).

...but of course, this is a topic I could go on about for hours.

What are you talking about! You sound like someones Grandmother. Get out and enjoy summer. You can play God here and arrange things so you can enjoy the summer. Other people do it, besides you're way to cute not to be out where people can see you! Read the books in the winter or rainy days. It's a known fact that being outside improves mental health. If you need an act of God, OK, here you go. "You are hereby granted permission to enjoy summer". There, no excuses now!

hell, don't you take your kids out to enjoy the sunshine, show them the best things in the world and appreciate them, the good things in the world, and everything you have? you can have kids and still enjoy yourself by sharing your pleasures with them (besides the sexual ones, i mean).

you are clearly exceptionally bright and a talented writer, don't waste it... get out there and live the kind of life you want to live (within the existing parameters) and let that be your inspiration...

hell, i don't mean to lecture. nothing goes in one ear and out the other like a good lecture!! LOL! but really...! sitting indoors all the time and wallowing is nothing but self-defeating --

Geeze I wish I were all the things that you suppose that I am, I am lucky to hit the right key on the key board. I do take the kids out but my youngest is 5 months old and a redhead (burns easily), As for reading, I like an eclectic group, no westerns or housewife porn i.e. romance, if i want that I can just log on to AdultFriendFinder. I like classical lit and anything new that sparks thought or whatever. My fav authors are steinbeck and salinger so if that gives you a hint. Tabby, I also lobe Hienlens "A stranger in a strange land" one of my favs as well. I also love reading new authors.

I highly recommend the Harry Potter books. I've read them all and eagerly await the next one. I'll also put in a plug for "Godel, Escher, Bach" even though it has been out for 20 years. If you're into science at all, check out "The Physics of Consciousness" by Evan Harris Walker. I'm re-reading "Iron John" by Robert Bly in preparation for a class. Tell me the kinds of things that interest you and perhaps I can make some suggestions.

As "Godel, Escher, Bach" comes highley recommeded, I will certaintly check it out. Science isn't exactly my forte, and as I try to avoid feeling stupid as often as possible (though mostly it cannot be avoided, I don't dabble to much into that. Big reader, and I can say that I have read enough historical documents to hold me over until next semester, so I am trying to keep my summer reading light and airy if possible.
