My husband has a little electronic game on his desk at work called 20Q. He keeps it there for people who come in to ask for his help, so they will have something to do while he works on their problems. (I also think it is for those times when he really just need to think about nothing.) It is a variation on the old party game that people used to play. You answer a series of questions the little ball asks while it tries to "guess" what you are thinking of. It usually guesses correctly. The first question it asks: Is it Animal, Mineral, Vegetable, or Other?
I need some categories for my blogs, so one night, while I was in bed waiting for sleep, I decided to use those categories for my blog. (I made a note to myself on my phone so I wouldn't forget!) Animal will be about personal stuff like what's happening in my life right now. Mineral is the Rock on Whom I build my life; it's where you'll find any inspirational writing I might do. Vegetable--the Fruit of my womb, my children...did one of them do something amazing, cute, disgusting? Look under vegetable. Other will be, well, other stuff. :o) Probably any home-educating ramblings will go there. I expect there to be overlap.
