Grilling Goodness

GoldenGoodness





Oh Goodness...time for some grillin'!

1. When you were in school, did you study hard or cram the night before?

2. What can pull you out of a really funky mood?

3. Do you keep the invoice after you've paid the bill?

4. Do you have yard sales? Shop at them?

5. When was the last time you rode a rollercoaster?

6. Spring cleaning...do you do such things as wash your windows?

7. How often do you clean out your refrigerator?

8. Have you ever been a victim of identity theft?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Answers

1. I did a little cramming...not so much of a studier. When I did study, I simply reviewed the notes I had taken in class. During the test, I could almost tell you exactly where I wrote the answer in my notes...sort of a photographic memory.

2. Going out for dinner makes me happy. No cooking. No dishes. Unlimited coke.

3. There are some bills, like the mortgage statement, that I retain, but after I pay the phone/utility bills, they are destroyed. I pay them in person and my check is the receipt.

4. We have had one yard sale since we got married and we raked in over $900! I've had the stuff to do another one, but ended up donating most of it. I didn't want to fool with it...but when we start clearing out to move, I think I will have a yard sale. I have baby stuff to get rid of! :)

5. Rollercoaster!?!? How I love them!! I rode the Mystery Mine at Dollywood last summer. Loved it! We are planning a trip to Six Flags this summer...rollercoasters here I come!

6. [hangs head in shame] I have never washed our windows. I like to clean the ceiling fans, baseboards and underneath the sofas, but other than that, it's business as usual.

7. I clean out the refrigerator when I don't have any more bowls for leftovers. We should eat more leftovers so the turn-around will be shorter.

8. Yes...we've had our bank account stolen twice. But we recovered our money each time. We never carry cash, but me thinks we should give it a shot...especially at restaurants where they walk off with your card when you pay.

I will do my best to keep Grilling Goodness rolling, but there may be times this summer, or during our move (eventually), when I will become a slacker. Thought I should warn you!

Have a fantastic weekend!!

Thank you for hosting Grilling Goodness. I love it!

$900 on a yard sale is awesome! Way to go!

Sorry you have been a victim of identity theft twice. That is just not right.

Ugh, being an identity theft victim is horrible. We have not only had credit card numbers taken, but hubby's entire identity was stolen. Major mess, but we were lucky and caught it quick (we think). We never let our cards out of view at restaurants. I walk them over.

Thank you Tina for grillin' on Fridays! Gives me something to blog. Seems I am in a blog-desert these days!
Maybe all your faithful readers could submit questions then you would have a reserve to use? Just a thought.
Wish I could go to your baby stuff yard sale!!
Have a great weekend : )

Hi Tina!
I found you on Amy and Marlene's blogs! So glad I did! I may just have to jump in next week and participate! I used to live in Knoxville...graduated from UT! I really miss that area!

This is kind of like confession-time!

I'm sorry you've been the victim of Identify Theft - TWICE!

How fun! Just hopped over here from Amy's blog at The Kings Table. Read your profile. Fall and spring are my faves, too. Have a great weekend.

1. When you were in school, did you study hard or cram the night before? A little of both--making the grade was important to me. But I wanted to play it cool so if I could wait last min I would :)

2. What can pull you out of a really funky mood? My hubby and kiddos. And good food! I know, the food part--that is sad.

3. Do you keep the invoice after you've paid the bill? No. I don't keep much...paper drives me crazy.

4. Do you have yard sales? Shop at them? Love them. Love shopping at them. Don't get too much these days...but my hubby has only a few rules in life (he is really laid back about most) and one is NO garage sales at our house! Ugh. Ugh.

5. When was the last time you rode a rollercoaster? Hmm....probably Dollywood 2 years ago...unless the kiddie one at Disney counts :)

6. Spring cleaning...do you do such things as wash your windows?
Um...nope I have NEVER washed a window either!!! That would just be nuts!
7. How often do you clean out your refrigerator? By throw away old food, etc. about once a week. By take it all out...and clean it...um...maybe once every few months.

8. Have you ever been a victim of identity theft? No. But I know a ton of people that have--not fun stuff!
