This is my first post for my new blog, and it seems I can't concentrate. I'm not one of those people who can block out sounds when I read or write, especially when I read. Let me see if I can identify all of the sounds I hear at the moment. Currently, I hear the cubs game on tv, the sounds of a double screen gaming system nearby, and a thumping noise which is probably the cat.............................. Oh wait, that's me. The chair I'm sitting in makes a thump noise. I also hear the occasional page turning from the friend reading a magazine while watching tv, and a popping of feet. Well, nothing productive or reflective at this point. Cubs are 2 in 1 in the 5th by the way. Go Cubs!
