what does everyone do?

so apart from cleaning and working, what does everyone else get up to?

i like going out with my old college mates and having a good laugh. i like looking after my animals which can be really annoying! my rabbits are sooo messy!

i like swimming, playing pool, dancing, pole dancing , reading, CLEANING, relaxing, quiet nights in in front of the tv.

what does everyone else get up when you have a spare 5 mins?

I read worthless information on the 'net. Sometimes I find a jewel in my everlasting search for higher intellegence.

Welcome Playboybunny

I'm with Torrey, I spend waaaaay too much time on the web

I do enjoy watching arena football, taking my dogs to the local dog park, and crafting when my business(es) are not keeping me totally occupied to the gills

I volunteer my time and participate in programs that use adaptive sports for wounded veterans and soldiers. Particularly white water kayaking events, snow skiing and outrigger canoeing. My husband trains for a 90-mile event each year in New York. I just float down the river and hope for the best. I haven't drowned yet.

Here is a pic of me in a "hole" last summer in Colorado. The people in the background are the wounded vets, including my husband, which range from amputees to brain injured men and women. The children in the foreground are the daughters of one of the wounded veterans. It's a family event we can look forward to each year.



It's very rewarding.

Did someone say spare time? What is that? I do not have any these days. Yesterday I worked 12 hours! Hire employee today! Woo hoo! Anyway, I go to school online. (Not too sure why I did that) So when I get home the first thing I do is shower then homework (which I am supposed to be doing now). In between that I try and take care of my kids, husband and dogs but I think that they have all been neglected lately. Sometimes when I get the chance I just veg out on the couch and flip the channels on the TV all day and eat junk food. Maybe one day for fun I will get to the grocery store!

Thanks Kittie. I am actually hopefully going to be off on Friday and taking the kids to Houston to my in-laws house. We were supposed to leave on Thursday but when the big customers call I can't tell them no. I wonder if I will ever trust anyone to do the work and me not have to be there? When you own a business I guess that is part of the deal. Even in Houston my phone will be ringing off the hook. But atleast the work will not be physical. My body needs a break. Maybe I will come back refreshed. I think everyone needs a break every now and then.

Kendra,

Try bartering services with a massage therapist. That's what I do!

Ahhh, Calgon...take me away!

Next month we are going to Colorado to go skiing in Breckenridge. I am SO excited to get a vacation!

That is a great idea Torrey. I am going to have to work something like that out! I think we really just need more help but want to take it slow. We are training the new girl tomorrow so hopefully she will work out.

I pretty much have no life. If I am not washing, staining, hiring, marketing, scheduling or analyzing numbers.. I am talking to Michael (Harley guy above) or another associate about those things. if I am not on the phone talking about business I am reading a forum about it.. and finally, if I am not reading or posting about business, I am in some other part of the country speaking about it.

Hey Torrey.. Do I look chipper enough in this one?

Y'all can keep the kayaks and rafting. That whole "not knowing when you are going under the water sport thing" scares the heck out of me. But I was an avid scuba diver years ago...Grand Cayman was the ultimate place for that.

Skiing in Steamboat Springs, CO was second best to scuba diving in Cayman and who doesn't love a ride on a Harley?

Have fun Torrey! Isn't it nice that you can go to the snow in the Spring and not have to deal with it here in Virginia?

& Ken, very chipper

Hey Ken,

You are quite chipper and I can see the animated movements in the still frame. Were you walking on sunshine that day?

When are you coming to Virginia to speak?

I go kayaking up in Pennsylvania a couple times a year. It's been a little too long since my last visit though. I plan to go on the Lower Yough this summer, as we've done every summer for the last three years. That's at the Ohiopyle State Park. The last time I went I was interviewed in Paddling Magazine. We even had the kids out there! They love their adventures with Mom and Dad.

Virginia is on the East Coast. We live on the Chesapeake so there's a lot of opportunities to go flat-water paddling off our back yard. We also have a bass fishing boat. Do you ever go fishing in the land of fish and chips?

I like my fish batter fried with malt vinegar. I took that from the brits as my favorite way to eat fish.

For me its Sports, Camping, Travel and working out. I'm moving to DC pretty soon, so I'm trying to get prepared for that journey.
