1. Yes, I love it!

2. Not really, I live in a really built up suburb. We do have a lot of rabbits though.

3. Yes, I went on a cruise and I also went back to my home state to visit family.

4. Nope. Since I'm not a classroom teacher, I get stuck managing severe behaviors and helping in Kindergarten the first few days, so there's no point in having a special outfit. The beginning of the year is definitely my least favorite time!

1.) Do you like the area where you live? Yes, mostly.

2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area? Yes. Deer, squirrels, rabbits. We couldn't go outside for recess for a week last year because there was a fox that animal control hadn't caught.

3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer? Yes, we went to the beach for a week. We also had 2 weekend trips.

4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school? Yes. It is hanging in the closet ready because the first day of school is Tuesday.

1.) Do you like the area where you live?
I like the low cost of living and the lack of traffic. My teaching salary goes pretty far. It is also a reasonable drive to a major city.

2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area?
Yeah, you have to watch out for deer on the roads and a lot of squirrels and rabbits run through my yard.

3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer?
No, but I get a full week of Spring break this school year and I am looking at going somewhere.

4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school?
No, but I do buy new school clothes and shoes.

Yes. I live in a suburb of Washington DC, and there is a lot to do here. I don't like the bad traffic, however.

Yes. We have deer, squirrels, foxes, rabbits and other wildlife here.

3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer?

I never did when I was teaching.

1. I love where I live! It's an old suburb of Cleveland on the upswing.
2. The above area is next to the Cleveland Metroparks. We have tons of squirrels, rabbits, and now deer. It's surprising since we're a densely populated 'burb.
3. No vacations this year, just outings here and there.
4. Only if I see one on sale, but I'm not planning on a special outfit for that first day.

Yes, I love the area where we live! 4 beautiful seasons, mountains, oceans, lakes all within a 2 hour distance.

Plenty. We have deer who will frequently stand in our yard. We have also had a moose, a bear, wild turkeys, fox, porcupines, etc.

We are leaving tomorrow for a week away.

1.) Do you like the area where you live?
It is well documented how much I love New Mexico!

2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area?
In my neighborhood, we mostly have roadrunners and coyotes. When we camp in other parts of the state, we see chipmunks, squirrels, deer, antelope, and elk. Supposedly, we have bears and big cats, but I've never seen either, thank goodness!

3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer?
If camping counts, we have been on many.

4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school?
No. The first day of Kinder is herding cats.

1.) Do you like the area where you live? It is okay. I do wish we didn't live on a steep hill which makes it's harder to go for walks. I'd love to live to live in a village near water.
2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area?
YES!, DH has been relocating them out of of our garden-this morning he is dealing with a baby skunk.
Update at 10:00

3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer? No, and no plans for one . Even day trips have been limited

4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school?
I liked to have something new to wear for meet the teacher night, then wore it again the 1st day and the despised pictured day. Retired now!

1.) Do you like the area where you live?
Yes! It's rural, but I can be in a major city in under an hour.

2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area?
Yes. I've seen all kinds of wildlife in my yard. Squirrels, raccoons, snakes, lizards, turtles, deer, a red-tailed hawk, skunks, opossums, rabbits, all kinds of songbirds. There is a black bear in the area, but I've not seen it.

3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer?
We took two vacations. We went away for a week in our anniversary, and then we went to the beach with DSS and his BF. We've driven about 4000 miles this summer.

4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school?
Sometimes. It depends on whether I find something I really like.

1. I do now, but it took this city girl a while to appreciate it.

2. Yes - love it! Mostly squirrels and deer.

3. Yes - several small ones

4. Yes - usually for Meet the Teacher a few days before school starts. This year I bought a fuchsia piko dress.

1. Yes, it is a smaller community that has access to some larger cities via the interstate. They are only about 20 minutes away in either direction. We have a large river that runs through our town and people here are friendly. The downside of our town is that we don't have a variety of eating places-- a Subway, a pizza place( but I don't like their pizza) and a bar. A coffee shop is opening next week that will have soups, salads, and sandwiches. I am very excited! It's in a historic building and should have a wonderful atmosphere. I told DH we need to support it frequently so it stays in business.

2. Since we have hickory trees, our backyard is a squirrel haven. It is a subdivision and we have seen an occasional fox, deer, skunk, oppossum, eagle, etc. We feed birds so there are a variety of those, too.

3. No, planning to go to Cancun in January. Some weekend things with friends coming up in August.

4. I am partially retired, but I never went out to buy anything specific. I clothes shop all the time anyway

1. Most of the time I like where I live. I've lived in this general area my whole life. I do wish we'd get a little cooler weather in the Fall & Winter. It's hot here all year round.

2. The wildlife where I live is more like snakes and alligators. We've had small snakes & lizards in our pool. Haven't seen a gator in the canal, behind us, but small ones have been spotted here and there by others nearby.

3. Yes, we went to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge, TN in late June.

4. I usually do but haven't yet.

1. I love the town I live in. I hate that my town is in the traffic jam capital of the USA.

2. We have squirrels (tons), raccoons, skunks, and sometimes a wild turkey or fox makes an appearance.

3. We went away in May on a cruise to Alaska. We are broke now lol so no more vacations this summer!

4. Always..

1.) Do you like the area where you live? Yes. And no. Too much traffic, but the weather's great.
2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area? Sort of. We have skunks, racoons, and the occasional coyote.
3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer?
Yeah. Drove 3728 miles. There is nothing in Wyoming. Except Yellowstone.
4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school? No. I never buy special outfits. My wife sometimes buys me stuff but I am not the fashion maven.

1.) Do you like the area where you live?
Love it! I have access to shopping, a couple top notch universities, live music venues, history, nice parks, some great places to eat, and wonderful neighbors.

2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area?
Way too many tree rats! A sweet rabbit family, the occasional deer, and birds galore who visit our feeders.

3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer?
Every day's been a vacation!

4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school?
I am a librarian, so the first week of school is the first day of school every day. I'm not a fashionista by any means, but I step it up each day. First impressions are important, you know!

where I live

1. I do love where I live!

2. I am in town, but have squirrels, chipmunks, mice, raccoons (grrrr), and possums. The football field across the street is a huge draw for Canadian geese twice a year. We've even had deer get into the gate of the fenced football field and need the help of animal control to get out.

3. Yes. I've been to New Jersey to visit my nephew, his wife, and their daughter. On the way (kinda out of the way) home, we stopped in west central IL to visit another nephew, his wife, and their children.

4. Retired, but will be starting the school year as a sub in my old special ed classroom. I probably won't buy a new outfit as my regular clothes are in such good shape because I haven't worn them frequently enough for them to wear out. Retirement has also been good for my clothing budget.

Yes! A wonderful cruise to Mexico right when school went out. I am ready to go again!

I usually buy some back to school clothes and pick one of my new outfits for the first day.

1. Not particularly. I like my street and the couple of streets near me, but not the surrounding area.

2. We have a bunch of squirrels and rabbits and birds. There are also a few raccoons and opposum.

3. Yep! We spent a week on the beach.

4. Not usually. I pick out something comfortable enough to herd cats all day and nice enough to be in all the first day of Kindergarten pictures.

1. I like the area where I live because it is close to two major cities. More opportunities for the music and theatre things I do.

2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area? I live in a suburb, but there are a few here and there in the more open areas of our metro.

3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer?
We have been gone for four weekends since Memorial Day, and leave for our big two week one in Tuesday.

4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school? Sometimes I would have new clothes for the beginning of the year. No particular special one though.

1. I like where I live but don't love it.
2. Yes, from the kitchen window I watch deer, rabbits, turkeys, quail, squirrels, an occasional coyote (or mountain lion or something).
3. No vacation possible right now.
4. Retired now, but never did. I buy a lot of clothes year-round. I choose from that. The truth is, I'm too cheap to buy a designated outfit (except for my MOB dress). I expect my clothes to be good for many occasions.

We love it
2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area?
lots of squirrels, no deer. I saw a chipmunk earlier in the year. We have coyotes aplenty. Neighbours saw a bear a couple of weeks ago and a different neighbour saw a skunk. A couple of months ago, a raccoon was in our yard and when I threw a tiny piece of wood at him to make him go away, he brightened up and lurched over to see what it was, picked it up and threw it away with a clear WTH look at me. Apparently, there are stupid people who think feeding raccoons is a good idea. Just yesterday, I saw a pileated woodpecker on a telephone pole.
3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer?
just a couple of days to the lake
4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school?
This will be my first year of not buying a special outfit because I retired in June. Maybe I should buy a special outfit for the vacation I'm starting on the first day of school

1.) Do you like the area where you live? Yes, pretty much. Southern CA, I'd absolutely love to live on the Central Ca Coast though!

2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area? Just squirrels, a few raccoons here and there, and opossums.


3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer? Nope, I had ankle surgery on June 19th, the first Monday of summer. Not sure if I'm going anywhere yet, waiting to see how it goes.

4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school? I usually wear a new outfit but it's not super special, just one of the new things I bought for the year.

1.) Do you like the area where you live?
Yes, for the most part. But it's way too expensive and traffic sucks. Otherwise, it's fab!
2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area?
Lots of squirrels and bunnies, not a lot of the big animals right around my house, but if you go a few miles east, you'll see more.
3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer?
Can't afford the family vacation this summer. Maybe we'll be able to take some time during a school break this year.
4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school?
Not in school anymore, so no. I never did when I was teaching, though.

1.) Do you like the area where you live?
I like the general area. I don't mind our specific town, though I think I'd rather be in the country

2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area?
Yes. I had a deer in my front yard eating hostas the other night. We've also seen squirrels, chipmunks, pheasants, woodpeckers and the occasional rabbit. Haven't seen the raccoon but one got into the garbage, and there was a groundhog last summer. My parents are more rural and have all those plus skunks and foxes.

3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer?
No, and likely won't do more than day trips this year. The baby sleeps poorly enough in her own bed that the idea of going away isn't very apealling!

4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school?
I wore the same dress for the first and last day of school for a few years (at several different schools.) Last year we had to wear school polos. I might get a new outfit for my first day back from mat leave in Nov.

1 Yes, I love the area that I live in. We have beaches, great shopping, and plenty of restaurants. It still has that small town feel. We live by a major highway, so that's convenient when we want to travel to a major city.

2 Yes we all sorts of wild life in our area. We live in a semi rural part of the city.

3 Yes. We have taken two short trips to Disney. We live three hours away.

4 I normally plan on a new outfit or two to start the year. I haven't been shopping yet.

1) I don't like the fact that it's so congested with people and cars. I do like the fact that everything is easy to get to, even walking distance.

2) We go to nature preserves in our area and there is countless wildlife...an oasis in the middle of the hustling, bustling town.

3) No...we are totally broke...so we do not get a vacation.

4) I'm 50 years old and my mom still sends me a new outfit for the first day of school. She has good taste, so I always look good.

1.) Do you like the area where you live? Yes, I am so excited to be paying off our house this year.
2.) Do you have a lot of deer/squirrels/wildlife in your area? No, coyotes once in awhile
3.) Have you taken a vacation yet this summer? Yes, we vacationed in San Diego and saw our DS and DIL.
4.) Do you buy a special outfit for the first day of school? Woohoo! Another thing I don't have to do anymore. Maybe I'll buy a summer shorts outfit.

1.) Yes, very much. I don't do well in cities, and love our isolated, rural lifestyle.
2.) We have wildlife, but it runs more to kangaroos, emus and wombats. We see vermin, like foxes and rabbits, regularly, too.
3.) DH and I went to Uluru and Alice Springs for a week at the beginning of July. Not summer, but a great holiday.
4.) Not usually.
