Volume 353
Thank you Joyce.
Click HERE to play along.

1. The last place you visited/patronized where you felt like you were given 'the royal treatment'?

I think that would be at Adam and Gabby's wedding in Cancun last November at Secrets Playa Mujeres Golf and Spa Resort. All inclusive is a lot of fun! 

2. The last task you completed that was a 'royal pain'?

Honestly I haven't completed any tasks in a long time. I'm years behind on getting my house organized. 

3. How have your strengths helped you succeed? How have your faults hindered you?

My faults right now would be having trouble getting myself motivated to do the things that need to be done to declutter the house. I don't have any strengths right now.

Now when I was divorced over 30 years ago I had a lot of strength to move forward with my life and raise my children.  It's amazing what you can do when you have to do it!!

4. If you found a remote that could rewind, fast forward, stop and start time, what would you do with it?

I think I might rewind a little bit but only because I wish I was more into fitness years ago and started eating better back then. Otherwise I wouldn't want to change anything because this is the plan God has for me. 

5. Any special plans for the Memorial Day weekend? Will you in some way honor or recognize the meaning of this day (remembering people who died in service to their country)? Have you ever been to Arlington National Cemetery? Does your town do anything special to mark the day?

No we do not have any plans at this time. No I have never been to Arlington National Cemetery but have visited military sections in several cemeteries over the years. I am always thankful to those who have given their lives for us to live. I'm not aware of anything going on in our town. 

6.  Insert your own random thought here.

I can't think of one place I've ever been that I would say I got the royal treatment. But then again, I don't get out

Joyce said...

That cartoon! Made my heart race just thinking about it! I hope you have a great weekend Debby!

Sandra said...

that stress test would kill me.. I am with Ann, have never been given the royal treatment and that is because I don't go to places that do that. I rather visit a log cabin close to a beach, no royal treatments there . every task I tackle is now a royal pain, but the ONE that comes to mind is the pain of cleaning the glass nook. but you have heard that before. I would love to have a time machine I could flip back in time, start and stop. there is so much I would change I can't write it all here

Little Penpen said...

I don't think I've ever had royal treatment either. I feel like I give it to my grandkids a lot, though. lol

Michelle F said...

Hi Debby,

Not sure what we will do Memorial weekend.
Hubby is on call Memorial Day.

I really need to declutter.
Maybe we could have a declutter party :)

Have a great week :)

I love the cartoon. So happy to hear how well you were treated at the wedding! Sure makes the memories more special!
We plan to stay home this long weekend and just take it easy - we are having a lot of rain!

Mary said...

Just thinking about that cartoon gives me the heeby-jeebies!!
I'd like to try that place in Cancun...just once! :)

Mara said...

I like the cartoon, although I am not sure how stressed I would have become. I am not that scared of spiders!

Cathy said...

Love your random. I would absolutely have a heart attack!! lol

Mevely317 said...

That stress test! OMG! Our pest control folks were here last month, but just a few days ago while I was brushing my teeth a daddy long-legs dropped down into the sink ... just as arrogant as you please. Needless to say, they're coming back tomorrow afternoon.

Chatty Crone said...

That stress test would kill me for sure. We are not sure what to do for Memorial Day either.

I bet the wedding was beautiful

betty said...

LOL with the cartoon :) Spiders don't get to me, but lizards do and we have a few in the backyard that always seem to scamper close by when I'm out there. It was good to get the royal treatment at the place where Adam's and Gabby's wedding was, I'm sure it made everything so much more enjoyable for such a happy occasion!


Carla from The River said...

Your randoms are the best!!! Thank you for sharing.
I am glad the Adam and Gabby's wedding was so wonderful for you all, that is special in many ways.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I'd rather run on the treadmill than do the spider test!!

Love Of Quilts said...

Oh my number six would relief the stress for sure, because you would be gone.
It would kill you.

Life SPW said...

Hello! You have a wonderfully bizarre sense of humor. I like that in your posts. Thanks for visiting my blog page and for leaving a comment. Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Lynn Marie Millette said...

Love the cartoon! That would send me over the edge if it were real. Have a great holiday weekend

I've only been to Arlington Cemetery once, when my grandfather was buried there (in 1988). It was a moving military funeral but odd because some tourists were also watching.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Yes that would be odd with tourists around. FYI: Did you hear that comments are not going to email accounts since Wednesday. I never actually look at comments on my blog post but checked today and here is your comment. It never went to my email address :(
