Friday Follies

Another week and no blog posts from me. Do I have anything exciting to tell you? Have I been busy doing very cool things? Have I been on any adventures? Ummm. Negative. On all counts. We are here. Just doing things like swim lessons. Tennis team. Playing with friends. Farmtown on facebook. Reading lots of books. Basking in the cushyness of my new bed.

I have been list making. You should see my two page list of blog ideas. All of which require me to take pictures. Upload pictures. Edit pictures. But I get distracted. Or have to take the girls some where. Crops have to be harvested. Or my computer can't handle all the photos I have loaded and it slows to something resembling a sloth.

At least we have our follies.

Desktop or laptop?

Write blog or read blogs?

Favorite thing you've done this summer.

Favorite book you've read this summer.

Favorite movie you've seen this summer.

swim or tennis?

Time you got up today.

This summer - vacation or staycation?

Ding, ding, ding!! You have just won an all expenses paid, 1 week vacation for your entire family. And you don't have to listen to a time share spiel. Where are you going?

How many photos are on your computer?

Kat!!! It's been way too long since I've commented, though I read all your posts!! Glad to see that you're having a great summer, you're enjoying your new bed, and all is well in your world. :)

Michelle said...

What we don't even get the story of the new bed? I'm so jealous of a new bed. I need a new bed... or at least a new mattress. Mine is (shhhh) the one I bought when I graduated college.

Laptop.

Both read and write?

Spent last weekend at BlogHer. Hands down.

Ooo, that's tough. Ex and the Single Girl, I think. Or The Queen's Fool. Too many to decide.

Ummm, I haven't seen any movies since last fall.

Swim!

7:46am

Sorta vacation -- heading to Florida for a week next week.

If I don't have to stay with the wee ones on the plane, we're going to Bora Bora (LOVE that place) and this time staying in a cottage over the water ... so long as the wee ones are ensured of not going in without us. If I have to go on the plane, too, we're headed to Playa del Carmen for an all inclusive resort vacation with the name of the place I can't think of OH! Club Med.

NO idea. Thousands. Too many. And almost none printed out. Oops.

Shelley said...

Did you get one of those yummy tempurpedic beds or a sleep number????

GBK Gwyneth said...

Loving my new MacBook Air!

Both write and read blogs.

Favorite thing: Long meals with my kids and mom and sis at cafes in France/Monaco.

Favorite book: The Ginger Tree

Favorite movie: HP6 in English with French subtitles while in Nice.

Time you got up today: 6:30 -- someone accidentally set the alarm!

Vacation! I don't know "stay."

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

About 5,000. And my external hard drive has about another 4,000.

Shannon said...

Both. But mostly laptop.

Lately it's been more writing, less reading.

Trip to Orlando.

Thanks to Angie, I've read all 4 of Jen Lancaster's books this summer... those were great. I also read and liked the newest Stephanie Plum that came out.

Harry Potter 6.

swim

Well, technically I woke up @ 6:30 when Shane left for work. But I didn't get up out of bed until about 9:30.

A week's vacation to FL. Other than that, it's been a staycation.

Hawaii. Or Disney World.

Between the laptop and Mac, I have no idea how many pics are on our computers...

Kat said...

I almost forgot to answer my own questions. Again.

Laptop.

Lately read. Writing is just not coming to me. I wish I was witty.

Have Michael go back to work. Or when the girls were gone for a week at camp. I like to be alone :-)

I have read a lot of really good books. "What Happens in London" was hysterical. "Shanghai Girls" was good...as was "Sarah's Key." And...ugh...I can't pick.

The Hangover. Hands down.

swim

a little after 8am

staycation. For some reason I have two vacations scheduled for Sept/Oct.

NYC. Or Hawaii.

11,000+ On my laptop. No wonder the thing is soooo freakin' slow...

CaraBee said...

Laptop (although we have a desktop too)

Both!

Go to Chicago for Blogher

Guernsay Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I cried. Big time.

Harry Potter. I can't wait for the last two. The waiting is painful.

Swim

8am. My daughter has been letting me sleep in lately. It is divine.

We're not really doing either. Sadly.

I would love to go to Ireland and stay in a castle and travel around visiting museums and castles and such. This might not be a kid friendly trip so I guess to rent a great big house in the Virgin Islands. It would of course have a cook and maid and would have an amazing beach with a boat and jetski.

There are 10s of thousands of pictures on my computer. We had to get a new drive for our network just to hold them all.

Oh, FUN! Here we go...

I have a laptop. Scott has 2 laptops and a desktop. (Don't ask. Apparently we need to open a store in our house.)

I write and read blogs!

Favorite thing this summer--seeing "Mayberry" through the eyes of the girls. They were in paradise!

Favorite book I've read--this summer? Hmmmm....oh, "Till We Have Faces," by C.S. Lewis.

Favorite movie I've seen--HARRY POTTER, of course!

Um...no tennis. I swim. When it's not raining, that is.

Got up at 8 am. Typical for summer.

This summer was mostly a staycation...except for Mt. Airy and Austin. We have 3 more weeks till our beach trip!

An all-expenses trip for the entire family? Hawaii, baby! And the girls stay at home this time. They can come when Caroline's about 7 or 8. (Yep...I said that. And I stand by it, too.)

Too many photos are on my computer. And only a quarter of them are of Jason Statham. Ahem.
