  1. First of all Suzanne ... Lots of Hugs and Well Wishes for you today!

    1. Yes. Several times. Food sucks. BYOF
    2. Couldn't possibly pick.
    3. NOOOOOO!
    4. Nope I don't
    5. Stay out of the stores ... it keeps you from shopping.

  2. 1. Yes for 2 cesarean sections and gallbladder removal.
    2. Breakfast Club
    3. No Christmas till after Thanksgiving!
    4. I'm wearing my pedometer right now (107 steps...sitting at computer doesn't help it) and it does increase my activity. If I notice it's low for the day, I might take an evening walk.
    5. If you work, eat leftovers for lunch to save money on going out.
    6. Drink coffee.

  3. 1. No. Knock on wood.

    2. The English Patient.

    3. Not only no, but HELL no.

    4. Yes, but I don't use it. I think the battery is dead.

    5. Stop trying to keep up with the Jones.

    6. Spending a few minutes petting my little dog before I get up. He always gives me that sleepy little "I love you so much" look that makes me all melty inside. :-)

    It’s question day!

    1. Have you ever been in the hospital??

    Two years ago, gallbladder.

    2. What is your all time favourite movie??

    Gone With the Wind - saw it on the big screen when I was about 20 years old, it was a special showing. I had read the book three times by then. Love that story. Love Scarlet (and Rhett - he's my dream man :)

    3. I just got my Christmas wish book! Have you started thinking about Christmas yet??

    Yes! Just yesterday I was talking in the office that we need to start planning our annual Christmas party. People looked at me like I'd lost my mind.

    4. Do you have a pedometer?? Does it help you increase your exercise time??

    I have three and have never liked them and barely use them. No, they don't help me. My favorite thing that helps increase my exercise time is my heart rate monitor.

    5. Do you have a favourite frugal living tip?? Thoughts on how to live cheaply??

    I'm terrible with money. Can't help you here. :)

    6. What's your favourite morning ritual??

    The gym. Love working out early in the morning.

  5. 1. Yes.
    2. The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio
    3. Yes. I want an iPod, as does my son. I'm budgeting right now.
    4. Yes, but I don't use it.
    5. Less is more. I use that when I'm shopping for anything so I don't spend too much and bring clutter into my home.
    6. Coffee..it takes me awhile to wake up. I sit and drink coffee. Then I get going.

    Best wishes on your surgery.

    I have many, but today I'll say Empire of the Sun.

    3. I just got my Christmas wish book! Have you started thinking about Christmas yet??
    No freaking way! I'll start thinking about it after Thanksgiving.

    4. Do you have a pedometer?? Does it help you increase your exercise time??
    I have one, but it doesn't really help me increase my exercise time.

    5. Do you have a favourite frugal living tip?? Thoughts on how to live cheaply??
    Budget, budget, budget. Live within your means. Don't fall victim to buying everything on credit. Save your $$ and then buy.

    6. What's your favourite morning ritual??

  10. First of all, good thoughts to you as you recooperate. AND, bravo for the advanced planning on the question day. You know how I'd miss it!! :)
    1. Yes, two kids and a knee replacement.
    2.The list is long, but I have always laughed out loud at "The Great Outdoors".
    3. I haven't begun yet, but our granddaughter has. :)
    4. Yes, I use it all the time, but I don't know if it really encourages me to do more, it's more or less a tool that helps me keep track of what I want to do.
    5. I'm not good at this, so I don't pay much attention to it.
    6. Awaken, shower, blog, breakfast, blog, walk or golf. Nothing too exciting.

    Again, Speedy Recovery.

  11. 1. Have you ever been in the hospital?? When I was 5 I had my tonsils out. Got a hernia repaired 6 years ago, but that was a day surgery.


    2. What is your all time favorite movie? Not a huge movie watcher, but probably Indiana Jones, action type.

    3. I just got my Christmas wish book! Have you started thinking about Christmas yet? Well, we watched a Christmas show off our DVR yesterday if that counts.



    4. Do you have a pedometer?? Does it help you increase your exercise time? I have a WW one, but haven't worn it all summer. It does help when I'm trying.


    5. Do you have a favorite frugal living tip?? Thoughts on how to live cheaply?? Eat at home as much as possible.



    6. What's your favorite morning ritual? I like waking up, making the coffee and sitting down to read the paper...happens never!!

  12. Suzi-best wishes for a speedy recovery!

    Questions and answers:
    1. I've been in the hospital way too many times. :(

    2. Favourite movie: can't really think of one. Ask me about books...

    3. I'm Jewish, surrounded by Christmas celebrators. It's a bit difficult. But what I want most for Christmas is for my husband to start taking better care of himself. Come to think of it, I want it NOW!!

    4. My pedometer is my best friend. It's like my watch. Goes on first thing in the morning. It's the best piece of exercise equipment I ever bought. I should start a pedometer fan club!!

    5. I'm not really good at "frugal" living, but I don't live beyond my means. My best tip is to pay yourself first (i.e. put a set amount into your retirement account or savings account--for instance a TFSA in Canada--every month).

    6. Favourite morning ritual: COFFEE!

    Make a meal calendar then shop to it. If you only buy the foods you need for your meals, you save tons of money on impulse shopping in the grocery store.
