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?

Astronauts don't impress me in the least. I plan to get to Italy before I die, How's that for an answer?

Too lax? Just a few posts ago, I was too uptight.

My cousin's daughter got married at Hilton Head last Summer. Absolutely beautiful destination, That was a family tradition they all took every single year and I find it way too cool she decided that as her place to marry.

1. How much exercise have you gotten this week so far?  I've walked about 5 miles, not great.

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

3. If you were given $10,000 today, what would you do with it?  Use half (or more) towards student loan debt, use the rest to buy an iPad and go on vacation.

I can see that if you have to choose, you need to choose what is best for your family.  

True but I don't see it as "choosing". I wouldn't take a weekend away, anyway as we prefer to do long week vacations far away from home.

We are taking a break from big vacations after the Europe trip last summer.  We rented a beach house for the spring break week and spending the week in Georiga somewhere, maybe another beach house, I'm not sure yet.  Working on those details.  The weekends aren't super expensive, but they are nice getaways in addition to the week long family vacations.  It works for us, we enjoy both weekends and week long vacations as well as the social stuff with our friends and families.  :)

That is nice. Whatever works for you. I prefer a big vacation and then get togethers and other things on the weekends with friends and family.

Again, there are three options (kill, marry and .....), I asked which one she was specifically asking about.  How many more times do I have to answer the same questions?  

Hey, it was college...drinking games rarely make sense.  I'm curious, why do you think this decades old game is "hip" among adults currently?

We also want to do a garage sale with friends and family one of the weekends in the summer (that we can squeeze in) and we also like to do volunteering with church. We do have ONE big vacation planned for this year though. I am sure it is costing us a lot more money than a few weekends would though. </span></strong></p>

A friend of mine and her husband go on one trip a year, The rest of the time they spend with family doing pretty much local/regional things.  They live near the shore and don't have that far to drive you knnow.

I do not like the groceries at our local Walmart, blech and it's actually further away then the good grocery stores that I like.  I try to buy local as much as possible and we have a few local grocery stores.

Like I said before, it isn't work/errands that puts miles on my car, it is the social, vacation and activites that put miles on my car.

Wow, that was very unkind.  Hardy's words from earlier come to mind here...

As a Cincinnatian, No it's not unkind it's honest. You don't live on a coast either. Enjoy Florida and Georgia, Really.
