Have a hobby? what is it? -- hmmmm, nothing that's a "hobby" per se, but lots of non-family, non-work interests

Buy new clothes every season? -- Usually nope. But this year? you bet. After losing almost 100 pounds, I have no choice.

cook dinner every night? how many in an average week? -- Yep. We have a home-cooked meal 6 out of 7 nights most weeks.

Go to all school/sport events? -- Only the ones my kids are in.

wear full make-up everyday? -- Nope. Only on work days or when there is some other motivation.

provide a "bar" when you host a party? -- Well duh! It wouldn't be a party without it.

have a current will? -- Yes, including POA and living will.

hire someone to do yard work/housework? -- yardwork, no, but I'm trying to convince dh. Housework, yes. We just upgraded to once a week from once every two weeks.

host dinner parties? how often? -- ehhh, only with reason. 2-3 a year,and usually only one or two other couples

schedule things around a particular tv show? which one? --- nope. Tivo Baby!

have matching sheets, cutains? -- my sheets match and they color coordinate with my curtains, but they aren't matchy matchy

have a formal dining room? formal living room? -- formal dining room, no. formal living room, well, kinda. We have a living room (with the nice furniture and big tv) and the rec room (with all the kids' crap).

take a yearly family vacation? -- ehh, hit and miss

have any friends who knew you when you were nine? -- several.

Have a hobby? what is it? I'm a runner and I play golf - both are at the hobby stage now, though I used to be good.


Buy new clothes every season? Before kids, yes. Since kids, not so much.


cook dinner every night? how many in an average week? 5 nights a week, 2 nights are a scramble, e.g. pizza, leftovers, cereal.


Go to all school/sport events? It's impossible with 3 school age kids, with each involved in sports.


wear full make-up everyday? I work from home, what's make-up? It's a good day if I shower before 5pm.


provide a "bar" when you host a party? Beer and wine, with an after dinner offering of single malt scottish whiskey for those who appreciate it.


have a current will? Yes


hire someone to do yard work/housework? Yes to both, but I do plant and cultivate my own garden


host dinner parties? how often? I'm not much of a host, but we have a good party house in the summer, so we entertain (with help) often in the summer


schedule things around a particular tv show? which one? I never schedule around TV, DVR was a great invention for me. I like House, Lost, BSG, and NOW and Bill Moyers. I love pbs and NPR podcasts for my runs.


have matching sheets, cutains? Somewhat, though its not terribly important to me. I just buy all that stuff at the same time.


have a formal dining room? formal living room? We have the rooms, but in our house they're pretty

Have a hobby? what is it? Sewing. Can work also be a hobby?

Buy new clothes every season? No

cook dinner every night? how many in an average week? Dh and I share cooking and frequently both contribute to the evening meal. We don't cook on Sunday as we have our big meal after church with dh's mom--we go out.

Go to all school/sport events? Only those that Dylan participates in.

wear full make-up everyday? No; didn't even wear makeup for my wedding.

provide a "bar" when you host a party? Does beer and wine count?

have a current will? Yes

hire someone to do yard work/housework? No

host dinner parties? how often? Last one was about 4 years ago. Other than that, we have pot-luck get together several times a year.

schedule things around a particular tv show? which one? No

have matching sheets, cutains? No

have a formal dining room? formal living room? No to both. We eat in the kitchen and the living room also functions as the family room, computer room and TV room.

take a yearly family vacation? No; we live in San Diego and so does most of the extended family.

have any friends who knew you when you were nine? No

Have a hobby? what is it? I like knitting, and I do a little gardening.

Buy new clothes every season? No.

cook dinner every night? how many in an average week? 1-2 times. DH cooks 4-5 times, and we usually eat out once.

Go to all school/sport events? Samantha doesn't have school or sport events yet.

wear full make-up everyday? No.

provide a "bar" when you host a party? No. We don't host parties very often, but if we did, people would be welcome to have whatever liquor we happen to have on hand. Depending on the party, we might buy some wine or beer.

have a current will? No. (I know, I know.)

hire someone to do yard work/housework? No. The landlord hires someone to mow though.

host dinner parties? how often? We have family over once a month or so, but no real dinner parties. Maybe if we had a house with a dining room we'd have people over.

schedule things around a particular tv show? which one? No.

have matching sheets, cutains? Only in Samantha's room-- although the curtains that match her bedding aren't up right now.

have a formal dining room? formal living room? No. We have a living room, but it's not very formal.

take a yearly family vacation? No.

have any friends who knew you when you were nine? Yes.
