I came home after my aerobic class. My husband was looking at photos in his album. I was so exhausted that I set on the floor when I entered. I told him that my new advansed exercise class is so hard for me because it is nonstop. He answered that aerobics is easy and he can exercise one hour in my class and not feel a thing. But I thought aerobic class is more difficult than lifting weights for an hour and I offered him to bet. "I win, and you cook dinner for the entire family and vice versa" I said. Then he called my instructor and said that he wanted to come to the class. Afterwards he reminded me about our bet and went away.But then I got to know that he only took photos of people exercising and we decided to go to the class together. After training he said that he had been wrong and he was really exhausted. But my instructor Jack said that my husband was in great shape. So I offered to cook dinner together.

It is a well-known fact that sport is very important in our life, especially for people who work at the office. But it is rather expensive to go to the sport club. That's why, I think, firms should help people to organize their leisure.
At first it is profitable for businessmen, because people who do a lot of sport don't get sick so often.
In addition most of people like sport and prefer to take care of theirs' health.
However some of employees think if their company meets the expenses sport measures that their salary become less. And so they refuse this possibility.
Nevertheless most of firms support their staff and arrange competitions, like football matches, because playing team sports would encourage team spirit.
Whatever people say, I think it's great that firms give people a chance to rest.

"Smart home" for me.

I want to tell you about my house. It is really usual, not a high-tech house. It is said that the latest technology is remarkable, but I don't think so.
As for me, I like to do my housework: I mop the floor twice a week, dust the furniture, air my rooms regularly. Also I like to do the shopping, I do it myself only. I understand that the washing machine will do the washing in no time in comparison with washing by hands, but sometimes I do the latter. I also help my mum to do the dishes and then dry them up. There are enough household appliances in our house, but we seldom make use of them. My mum thinks that people become lazy and feel themselves useless because technology fill their lives. I fully agree with this opinion.
