The Promise of a New Day

1) In this song, Paula Abdul celebrates the promise of a new day. Here at Saturday 9, we're celebrating the promise of a new year. What do you hope 2022 will bring? stability
2) She sings that we should see the wisdom from mistakes of the past. What wisdom did you gain in 2021? taking a day or two off for my mental health makes me a better teacher
3) What is something you'd like to spend more time doing in 2022? snowshoeing
4) Paula Abdul was once a "Laker Girl" and performed at L.A. Laker games. Do you have a favorite NBA team? no, I don't care for basketball
5) In 2009, she hosted RAH!, an elite cheer leading competition.  Do you remember any cheers from your school years? no, but I remember the school song

6) While famous for performing, Paula has arguably been more successful for her work behind the scenes, winning an Emmy for her choreography. Are you comfortable being the center of attention? Or would you rather work behind the scenes? I like being acknowledged for working behind the scenes--but not having a fuss made over it
7) She taught actor Val Kilmer how to dance for his role as Jim Morrison in the biopic The Doors. What talent, knowledge or advice have you recently shared? I shared a knitting technique with my Virginia sister

8) Paula was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2005 and uses a prescription biologic every day to help her cope with pain in her toes. On your last trip to the drug store, did you pick up a prescription, or something else? I picked up home Covid test kits

9) Random question: You have been house-hunting for months. You finally find your dream home and are just about to say "yes" when you spot a mouse scurrying across the floor. Would you take the house anyway? I would have pest control services check it out before I agreed to it, if they say it's not bad I would go for it

#2 -- YES! It's OK to not be OK.

#8 -- Those tests are just not be found around here. I have one and I'm hoarding it, saving it for when I return to the office because one of my coworkers shares her life with three very young children.

We still have a couple of covid tests from when Karl had covid. Josh and I never got it. I am glad you didn't either. Loved your answers. Have a nice weekend and Happy New Year 2022! ♥

I don't think we can find the Covid tests here now; there was a supply but it seems to have dwindled. Mental health days are important. It's too bad that all businesses don't recognize that. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I agree, days off are often needed for our mental health.
