words learnt from the video clip:
- a rough day
- tend to pets / children
- to groom
- xxx days go to doing sth

It also demonstrates various expressions we can use other than the phrase "spending how much time on doing something."

Enjoy it.

the worst mistake for one is to abandon oneself,

Thanks Kooper for sharing with us.
Talk about the verb "groom," I recently listened to an interesting radio program in NPR and found a new usage for this verb.

Why Women (Like Me) Choose Lower-Paying Jobs
http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2013/09/ ... aying-jobs
I cite one paragraph below,
"One day, her boss came to her and said he wanted to groom her to be a director"
The verb "groom" here means to prepare someone for a special job or activity.
So have fun.
Remember all what your mom has told you, and do the opposite.

Hi David, thanks for sharing it. It's an interesting topic to reflect on. I also learnt the 2nd verb usage of the word groom.
