When it’s time to cut the grass (mow the lawn), who does it?
That would be my husband. My husband likes to be outside and would much prefer outdoor chores to indoor ones. I pretty much do the majority of the indoor chores unless something needs to be fixed so it is a pretty even trade-off. This means he usually mows the lawn while I am doing something equally as exciting like laundry. We share the fun around here, lol.
If someone gave you $500 dollars and you could not spend it on yourself, who would you spend it on?
Probably my kids. They have been the recipients of most of our money for the last 26 years so this would likely not be any different.
Have you ever taken a blogging break or considered one?
I am a fairly new blogger and I do not post very often so no I am not really considering taking a break. I have felt a bit guilty at times about not posting more. I have thought about that some and I have chosen to just do what I can. If I can only post 2 or 3 times a week that is okay for me. Blogging is not my profession. I have a full-time career and a family so blogging is something I am doing for pleasure. So it has to fit in with my schedule and can not become overwhelming or it would not be fun. Also, quite honestly if I have nothing to really say that would interest me I would not post it because it certainly would not interest anyone else either. I don’t have an exciting enough life to come up with a blog post everyday!!
Are you bothered by spring allergies or hay fever? If not spring, any other time of the year?
Yes. I do have allergies that are worse in the spring. I am allergic to several environmental/ plants. The biggies are certain types of trees. So they really bother me when the trees are budding and pollinating. I sometimes will take Allegra for the symptoms or more often Ibuprofen for the headache and try my best to go about my business. The nasal symptoms are easier for me to deal with than the eye symptoms. When my eyes get bad is when I medicate. I do experience allergies at other times of the year and of course I have a food allergy so that is all the time.
What’s new with you?
I am getting ready to chaperone another long distance trip. This is quite unusual for me to be asked to chaperone two trips. I have never been involved with this trip before but I will be going away with this group for four days. We leave Friday morning and I am looking forward to it. The location is not nearly as far as the Spring Break trip. So we will be taking a motor coach only no planes involved this time.
The day I arrive back home from the trip my daughter will be moving home from college for the summer. That will be a process getting all her stuff moved out of her dorm and back into the house. Then of course the readjustment for everyone. It will be a busy week but a good one too. There is a lot to look forward to in the next several days.
