1. When was the last time you:

* Went swimming? === would have to be when we lived in Houston, TX so that was probably 1991

* Saw a movie? === in a theater? It was "Love, Actually" so quite a while ago! Maybe a year and a half or so...
* Ate ice cream? === three nights ago we went to the "Sundae Station" in town and had soft cones (mine was a small vanilla, chocolate dipped)
* Jumped for joy? === I've been joyful, but never jumped...

4. What time do you:

* wake up? === with the sun
* go to bed? === I fall asleep around midnight or 1 AM
* eat lunch? === when I remember, around noon
* eat dinner? === when DH gets out of the garden so these days, pretty late (8-ish)
* clean? === clean what? he litter box? when I get up? Me? when I get up? the house --- as little as possible!

Oh...I'm changing my favorite sound to rain and thunder too, just like Heather. I forgot that sound since it hasn't rained here in about 6 weeks! I LOVE thunderstorm nights. I sleep so well.
