Questionairre about Travel

1. What is the one place take out-of-town guests when they visit? (you can be vague to preserve your anonymity if you like)

I would take them to NYC to see the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center if it is holiday time. 

If not, then to Liberty State Park, in NJ, to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

2. When visiting another city or town, do you try to cram as much in as possible, or take it slow and easy?

We usually fill it with as much as the kids will allow!  About 2 things a day, one in the am, one after lunch, with the promise of swimming at the hotel after dinner, before bed.  That usually cinches their cooperation!

3. When traveling, where are you most likely to be; strolling through a museum, checking out the local shopping, or doing something else?

Definitely visiting a museum or another historical site.  Shopping is usually done on the fly at a gift shop.  Not usually the primary destination.

4. Do you like organized tours and/or carefully planned itineraries, or would you rather 'wing it' and just see what happens?

We usually have a partial plan before visiting somewhere and then add to it.  For example, when we visited Gettysburg in Summer 2005, we knew that one day we would do the Battlefield Tour.   The rest of the time was open, so when we arrived we gathered lots of pamphlets from the hotel, and planned with input from the kids, all our other visits! 

Even meals were made at historic restaurants, might as well kill 2 birds with one stone, if you can!

5. After a trip, what do you find yourself craving most about home?

This is an easy one, always the bed!  My comfy bed!

I hope everyone will come play, leave me a link to your journal if you do!


So, a quick update on my sick house is in order, I guess!

The kids are better.  Fuzzy came home pretty miserable yesterday, but a good nights rest in his own bed, has done him wonders!  He feels much better today! 

Hammer and Pumpkin are also back to normal, just a little remnant of congestion to remind them they were sick at all.

My Mom seems to be holding her own, definitely a bit of a cold, but it looks like Hubby and my Dad have been spared.

Me?  It looks likes the plague is settling in my chest.  I may have to go to the doc's tomorrow if it doesn't start to leave. Ugh.  I would say it is at least bronchitis for me. 

Figures, I get it the worst, but that is the breaks.  Being on drugs that suppress the immune system from wreaking the havoc of Rheumatoid Arthritis means that colds and flus get to do their worse.

I am looking forward to '24' tonight.  Poor Jack, his family (brother and father) are traitors, killed his friends and the former president even; he is so going to need major therapy.

Ah well, signing off for now...

be well,

Oh, so many people around here are struggling with this chest-mess!  A friend of ours son developed asthma from it!!!  It started as bronchitis and then triggered asthma.  It's been tough...  my hubby & son are 24 fans so we've had it on in the house but I try to not get overly involved.  We end up watching it twice because my husband tapes it and it's how he spends his Sunday afternoons now that football is over!

I am always on my way to the beach so if I can drag helpless visitors with me, so much the better.
I ususally head out with a plan then abandon it as I go along.
