Nope, I just do those things when it looks like they need to be done. As for laundry, since we have a household of exercise buffs and people who garden out in the hot summer weather, ever day is laundry day.



Extra Credit Question:

Last thing that had you
A "tad cranky" ?

The upcoming presidential election. It's more than a year off and already I have had too many people knocking on my door, calling me, and talking my ear off. It's too much, too soon--I can't stand to hear about it any more. It's almost like I'm developing an allergic reaction to it.

Grinning ear to ear ?

Got my cholesterol down and dropped a few pounds. Walking really works!


Laughing really hard ?

A song I heard about Keegan Bradley, the hot new golf champ.

Speechless ?

My dad's view of the world. I can't tell if he's playing games with me, or has really made a major about face, or if he's becoming confused.



Just for Fun:

Do you:
Play Golf ? Putt putt and practicing at the driving range, but I rarely play 18 holes.
Ride Roller Coasters ? Not my thing.
Prefer telling or hearing a joke ? Hearing a joke--if it's a funny joke, of course.
Exercise on a regular basis ? Every single day.

Today's Question(s):
Do you have a set day each week that you do your:
Grocery shopping?
Cleaning?
Yard work?
Laundry?
Banking or bill paying?
Nope. I have no set days for any chores. I just play it by ear and do stuff when it needs doing!

Extra Credit Question:
Last thing that had you
A "tad cranky"? This morning when my alarm went off. I was at a meeting last night that ran late, and by the time I got home, posted the Tip and got to bed, I was wiped out. Sure could've used another hour of sleep this morning.
Grinning ear to ear? This usually happens at least a few times a day for me. I find pleasure and humor in a lot of little things.
Laughing really hard? Every time I get together with my gal pals at pinochle club, we have some outbursts when we are laughing so hard our sides hurt. It's quite therapeutic!
Speechless? This rarely happens to me.

Bonus Question:
Ok so did anyone do any bookmarks/favorites "house cleaning" after yesterday's question? I still don't exactly know what bookmarks are, so I don't think I have any. I have buttons on my desktop for my favorite web sites.

Just for Fun:
Do you:
Play Golf? Nope.
Ride Roller Coasters? Used to love 'em. Haven't been on one for 15 years or so.
Prefer telling or hearing a joke? Telling. I'm a very good joke teller!
Exercise on a regular basis? Yep.

What do you think? I do this in writing sometimes. Haven't tried to use it in conversation. Will try to remember to give it a shot.

Today is:
Bratwurst Day NOW we're talkin'!

National Rum Day Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
National Golf Day I've only golfed once, about 20 years ago.
Roller Coaster Day
International Tell a Joke Day Now, THIS I will do today. I love telling Jokes.

Happy Tuesday, everybody!

All joking aside, no I don't have a set day of the week for doing any of the above tasks, and don't worry I do clean my house, do the laundry, maintain the yards, and pay my bills.

Ride Roller Coasters ? - Oh that's everyday when I drive my SUV to work..
Prefer telling or hearing a joke ? - No preference.
Exercise on a regular basis ? - I keep my fingers in shape by posting on City Data.. - Actually, yes I do lift weights and walk on a regular basis, but I haven't done that since I'm still recovering from the surgery I had on my right knee on July 26th to fix a broken knee cap, which happened on May 11th, and I reinjured it on June 12th.
