1. July is National Ice Cream month...your favorite flavor? Soft served, hand dipped, or frozen yogurt...which do you prefer? And technically yogurt is not ice cream but its hot outside so I'll let that slide for today.
I love Dairy Queen, next would be Butter Pecan Ice Cream.

2. When you travel do you tend to pack too much or too little?
Always too much but since I have been traveling more the last few years I think I am getting better at bringing less. I even managed to wear my pajama's more then once on vacation and my jeans too! I go on vacation again in under two weeks.

3. What's your favorite cleaning product?
I just can't come up with anything. I know that sounds strange but my daughter has been doing most of the housework. I do like a spray glass cleaner that we buy at Costco, it's awesome but it's not as earth friendly as I would like. My daughter loves the Method products.

4. Which is the greater tragedy-an innocent person imprisoned or a guilty person set free? Explain.
There you go Joyce with the tough question. I think they are both great tragedies but I would hate to see the innocent person suffer in prison with the abuse that you hear about.

5. What's the longest trip you've taken by car?
We have driven from Illinois to California a few times, I think those are the longest by car. I did that trip with my parents when I was little. Did it with Mark when I was pregnant with our son 33 years ago and also did it when we moved to California over 20 years ago.

6. tennis-golf-canoeing-biking...pick one.
I will pick golf but having done it in years.

7. What sound drives you crazy?
Can't think of one right now.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I may not be linked up today since I don't have internet. I hope this comes out okay, I'm doing it quickly at Starbucks. Hopefully I will be up and running at some point today since I haven't had internet since Friday morning!

Man I sure hope you get the Internet back soon. That crazy that you have with out it for so long! Hope your drinking something great at Starbucks!

Joyce said...

Hope your internet is up and running soon...we really rely on that now, don't we?

I am thinking of taking some golf lessons...I've never played but we live on a course so it seems like I should learn. I'm not too coordinated so we'll see : )


I hate that you are having to do the Starbucks thing....but at least you HAVE one. I would have to drive 45 miles to the nearest Starbucks. Hoping your internet is fixed by the time I get back from Cape Cod and my last vacation hurrah before school starts back.

Wow ... I can't believe you're still without internet. I can't imagine surviving that long. Thankfully you have a Starbuck's nearby.

And I think you have me beat on #5 ... especially the trip when you were pregnant! That had to make the drive feel even longer! ha!

Where are you going on your next trip? ;-)

Garden of Egan said...

Very interesting!
And thought provoking.
Yay! Another trip! Have you recovered from the last one? Where are you going.

nancygrayce said...

Ours was out for three days and I went crazy! Good answers. Where are you going on vaca this time???

Hilary said...

I am the queen of the one carry on bag, and yet, I still pack too much

blueviolet said...

It kills me that there isn't a DQ here. We have Sonic and it's just not the same. I can't believe you did the IL to CA haul multiple times!

Cherie said...

Oh my gosh no internet - that is a tragedy these days!! Hope it works soon!

I focused on question 4 because I have thought about this before and I think it is a worse tragedy to imprison someone who is innocent. They lose their lives and cannot get time back. While I believe someone who is guilty but set free will eventually do something again and eventually get caught.

I love Vanilla, we have a new place called "I Top It", its yogurt and I get the fat free,sugar free vanilla and theres a TON of topping you get to put on yourself, they weigh it by the pound to charge you for your order.
Its good enough reason for anyone to come to Colorado Springs, Colorado just to go there, heehee

2. When you travel do you tend to pack too much or too little?

3. What's your favorite cleaning product? Vinagar and water and its Earth Friendly.

4. Which is the greater tragedy-an innocent person imprisoned or a guilty person set free? Explain.
A guilty person set free, didnt this just happen with the Casey Anthony case, I do believe she is guilty.

5. What's the longest trip you've taken by car?
Louisanna, I dont want to talk about it, I might throw up if I do.

6. tennis-golf-canoeing-biking...pick one.

7. What sound drives you crazy?
when my dog licks himself or the floor for what seems like hours and it wakes me up in the middle of the night.

I want my surgery to heal so bad!

Our longest trips would have to be FL-NY it seems to take forever. I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE mint chocolate chip fan or ice cream sundae loaded. A sound that drives me crazy??? WHINING nuff said:) Hope your internet is back up.

Deb said...

great post....hope your net is up soon.....

Joanne said...

I always over pack for my kids and under pack for me. I forget alot when it comes to my own packing...very annoying. Hope you get internet soon!

LOVE Dairy Queen but the ones in our area have all closed! the closest one is about an hour away.
I tend to overpack, but I have gotten better, too. Used to I wouldn't wear an outfit for 2 days on a trip & now I will. We also save up our sample detergents that come throughout the year (I like to sign up for samples) & wash clothes while we are gone. Most hotels we've stayed at have a laundry room.
I LOVE Pledge furniture spray - leaves a subtle clean scent.

Cathy said...

Illinois to that is a long trip.

Hope your internet is up and working now. It's a pain to be without it, isn't it.

*I really like butter pecan, too.
*I always seem to pack too much, even when I pack light!
*My favorite cleaning products are Sparkle Glass Cleaner (it's purple and has no ammonia) and Magic Erasers.
*sounds that I don't like are the repetitive ones, like someone clicking a pen over and over again.

When I was a kid we drove from Boston to San Francisco. THAT was a long drive!

Ice cream - I like chocolate mousse, raspberry chocolate, moose tracks, and Ben and Jerry's karamel sutra.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Yeah to wearing PJ's :) on vacation. I'm so glad you get to go on another trip!! I like their glass cleaner spray also!

Oh goodness that is a long time in the car and to do it a few times in your life! yikes my dear!

I'm glad the internet is up and running now :)
