1. How much exercise have you gotten this week so far?

2. Do you get your father and/or the father of your child/ren something for Father's Day?

3. If you were given $10,000 today, what would you do with it?

I've only been reading your posts, Spring, and never read PKA's posts.  You have not pulled one of her ole "I'm so sorry (insert a normal way of life)" thing.  Does she still do that?  Do the rules of the board now dictate I am no longer allowed to use the word doWink

Yes, I got that it's in another state, really.  I'm really unclear about what you think is far away versus close, perhaps if you gave detail?

Again, see the word choice in there?  That means a choice, is there another way to read the word that I am not "hip" with?

<<Oh ok. That is why I love that I can walk to my local stores as I have shopped them since I was a kid and my dd walks now to the local stores.>>

So you walk on a regular basis, how far?

<<No, I don't HAVE to leave my area for the things that many people DO. That does not mean I don't. It is not like I don't "like" weekend getaways either lol. We have done a couple but we prefer bigger vacations. 

What are you considering my "area"?>>

So make up your mind here, do you leave the area to explore on a regular basis or not?  You keep saying that you stay local, rarely take Sunday drives anymore and everything is just close, close, close, close!!!!  But then now you are saying you leave the area on a regular basis, except of course, that you don't.

We think that seeing as much of the country as possible is educational, for history, geography, and other sciences. We weed very concerned that our kids get the best possible education. Plus, we think travel exposes people to different crimes, ideas, and people. We didn't want them growing up to be narrow-minded.

Well said and I will add that I want my kids to experience and see things first hand versus reading about them in books and/or seeing pictures.  I want the same for me, I love to travel and travel to different places.

Thanks bord, that was ever so helpful. I believe people have a lifetime to see what you seem to be limiting but go figure, Must make such worldly people by the time they reach what... 18? Good for them and you, Congratulations.

If that's what you got out of her post, I think you missed the point.

<p>I can't speak for Board but I think the point of trying to do it while they're young is to do it TOGETHER, to have an experience you share with your kids - one of my board members is doing the same thing and I can tell how much it has meant to their family to share these "counting down the fifty states" adventures.  Of course everyone has a lifetime to do those things but you know.. none of us know how long those lifetimes will be.. I don't see how setting a fun travel goal with your kids is something to sneer at.   what's the right acronym? SMH?</p>

Agreed and I know I don't have too many more years to have those types of experiences with my kids because sooon they will be adults, part of the reason I am so looking forward to my weekend getaway with one of my kids.  I greatly, greatly enjoy experiences.

If you talk about sex for money in the work place, that could be signs of a sexual harrasment.
