Re: Cat is away... Questions

  • Weekend plans are to make up the exercising I missed with my mom being sick and plan my meals for next week. 3 inches down and loving it... NEED MORE OFF!!

    I do not have a work out partner as the company I work for is all males. I would love someone to work out with but I don't know a lot of people.

    Favorite non fitness activity is watching movies at home with Fi... We snuggle on the couch and watch everything.

    I would take my mom and Fi to Italy for free... .My mom is my best friend and I want her to see Italy as it is her dream before she doesn't have the chance. Fi would come because I do not do with with airplane rides and I need my "entertain me before I kill someone because I'm cooped up and cant move buddy".

    I went on my first cruise in 11 on Carnival Valor and took another in 12 when Issac hit... I was stuck in the middle of Issac. We left Dominican Republic 15 hours before Issac hit and were stuck at sea for 2 extra days and I still NEVER want to take any other vacay than a cruise. I LOVE CRUISING!!! Best feeling ever losing track of time, discounted merch and amazing food. I hate vacationing any other way

  • What are your weekend plans? Anything fitness related or taking it easy? 
    Nothing major...going out to dinner with friends tonight, working out tomorrow & sunday, probably going to see some more houses & put more offers in this weekend...hoping to square away my taxes (all uber exciting stuff, right?)

    Do you have a work out partner or are you doing it solo? 
    I'm normally solo. I try to convince my DH to come when he's free and he does about 80% of the time.

    What is your favorite non fitness activity?
    BOARD GAMES! DH and I are obsessed. When we lived on the other side of the state we hosted a game night every single weekend and it was such a blast. I miss it a lot, but our friends on this side of the state A.) don't have as much free time and B.) aren't as in to games.

    If you could vacation one place in the world for free where would you go and who would you take? 
    I would really really really like to see Italy & Greece - and I would take DH because he's never been out of the country (Canada doesn't count for Michiganders). For our first out of country vacation we would probably end up going to the UK because of his heritage (I've already been there)

    After the carnival b.s. going on, will you cruise again or ever cruise period?
    Can you explain? I Am out of the loop on this one. Never been on a cruise but I wouldn't mind going on one.

    We are meeting with an officiant tomorrow.  This is the last really important vendor that we need to book, so I hope we like her!  Going for a run tonight and tomorrow, weight lifting on Sunday.

    Do you have a work out partner or are you doing it solo?
    Solo this weekend.  But I've made friends with a girl at my gym so we sometimes see each other lifting and in the summer we run together.

    What is your favorite non fitness activity?
    Sleeping or reading. 

    If you could vacation one place in the world for free where would you go and who would you take?
    A huge trip around Europe making sure to hit France, Italy, Greece, Germany and England.  I've been to England and Greece, but the other places would all be new to me.  I would take FI, even though he probably wouldn't enjoy it as much as I would.  I love art and would want to spend a lot of time in museums. My bach degree is in History of Art.

    After the carnival b.s. going on, will you cruise again or ever cruise period?
    I have never been on a cruise before and I'm not super interested in going on one.  I like to be able to set my own plans for the day and I just feel like being stuck on a boat would drive me crazy.  Plus I am not a big fan of huge crowds and I think being in such close quarters with so many people would bother me.

  • Lia, I will take you up on that!!! We go maybe once a quarter so if im around, I will hit you up while Fi goes golfing!!

    Heather, I felt the exact same way!! But you really do not notice other people around that much. Fi and I are laid back, bar people and we never felt crowded or anything... Its fun!

    Entro, What is your fav? I love monopoly!!!

  • @LIatris & Nike - We actually have an entire closet full of games. I have so many favorites it's hard to pick, but the games that tend to get played the most because WE like them a lot or because our GUESTS like them a lot are:

    -Settlers of Catan (this is an award winning game that is totally worth checking out if you've never heard of it)
    -Carcassone (city building type of game)
    -Cards Against Humanity (It's like Apples to Apples for a$$holes)
    -Ascension (deck building game similar to Magic but way better)
    -Phase 10 (Sort of reminds me of Uno but a bit more complex)

    I actually HATE trivial pursuit because I feel like there's no strategy at all in it and it's all just dumb luck on whether you actually know the answer to the question (hint: I rarely know the answer lol). I'm also not a fan of Monopoly because it's so hard to get all the way through the entire game (most of the games we play take maximum 1 hour, usually only 45 minutes)

  • Entro,
    Fi has a drinking problem... He has to stop on Sunday night. We made phase 1 into a drinking game....

  • What are your weekend plans? Anything fitness related or taking it easy?
    Our first dance lesson is tonight, and I'm working tomorrow. Sunday I'll take my parents out to dinner- dinner on me is their Christmas gift (and the answer for what you get people who have everything), and I have Monday off and am getting a mani/pedi so I'll stop being embarrassed at Pilates. Plus, it's awesome.

    Do you have a work out partner or are you doing it solo?
    Less and less solo workouts for me. I occassionally play raquetball with the Mister, and recently a friend joined my gym and we mostly workout together. I didn't think I would like having a friend working out with me (I judge people who spend their time on the treadmills/ellipticals talking incessently), but we basically catch up while stretching and then put our headphones on. I like seeing a familiar face at the gym though.

    What is your favorite non fitness activity?
    Reading and sleeping. I read constantly during the week, and nap as much as possible on the weekends! LovelyHeather- what are some of your favorite books?

    If you could vacation one place in the world for free where would you go and who would you take?
    Italy, and all things italian. Rome, Venice... I want to be surrounded by the architecture and art! I would take my mister.  I would also love to go to Sweden, since mister looks off-the-boat Swedish and ppl would come up to him thinking he was native when he lived there for a summer. That would be hilarious.

    After the carnival b.s. going on, will you cruise again or ever cruise period?
    Yes! but not a Carnival cruise. I've been on a few cruises and have had a blast. Mister hates the idea of a cruise. I've been trying to convince him that it depends on the cruise but this mess isn't helping!

    This was fun! I'm long-winded :-)
  • Entro- We're big game people too! 'Cards Against Humanity' is on our registry. I had no idea what it was, but now I really hope we get it! I know what that says about me!

    Yay questions!

    What are your weekend plans? Anything fitness related or taking it easy? 
    Working out every day, but probably not great eating due to friend's shower and stress.  Just got hit with a 600 pending vet bill for my poor pup, so whatever we do will have to cost us NO money.  This after a second bad day in a row at work, and fight with H last night.  Can I get a break please?

    Do you have a work out partner or are you doing it solo? 
    Bit of both.  Probably one workout with H, and two by myself.

    What is your favorite non fitness activity? 
    Um...Eating? :) Baking for real, though.

    If you could vacation one place in the world for free where would you go and who would you take? 
    Africa.  It's the top of my list.  I would go with anyone or no one.

    After the carnival b.s. going on, will you cruise again or ever cruise period?
    Yes, everyone makes mistakes.  Every mode of transport always has a chance of failing, so it's not worth staying at home to me.  And I really enjoy cruising, though I will never take Carnival anyway simply because I like quality and good food.

  • She has to have a cracked tooth removed because it's getting infected :(

    H and I are just trying to remember that we're glad they found it now rather than later.  We're also trying to remember to just be thankful that even if we have to pull the money out of savings, at least we don't have to make 'dinner vs. procedure' type of decisions.  C'est la vie.

  • @Natalie I mostly read fiction.  I love Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, A Discovery of Witches, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, His Dark Materials trilogy...really I will give just about any book a try.  Reading is my escape from reality.
