ahhh here is one. I want to wash my laminate flooring downstairs. it isnt dirty per say, but I can see the foot prints the oils in our feet leave. do I have to wash it by hand to keep excess moisture off it or can I use my mop as long as I dont leave puddles of water. what kind of soap should I use??? and is it true that i have to wash "with the grain" of the wood?

:o)
lol

Chana said...

my sweet, have a great wknd too..may it be fun and peaceful..no question as i don't dare think and ponder these days, it's more peaceful and quieter that way..lol.

How can I stop the neighbours cat pooing in my garden?

LauraJ said...

Have a wonderful weekend.
Question: Isn't my boy the cutest you've ever seen? *wink*

beadinggalinMS said...

Do you prefer sunsets or sunrises?
Happy weekend!!

Gingers Mom said...

Martini or margarita?

TC said...

Surely you've never lowered your standards with tequila?

(See how craftily I made that a question?)

No? OK then.

Shelli said...

Giving what you know now, and putting aside having your kids, would you still marry your ex today if all the circumstances were the same except you knew how it would end?

Catch said...

Blue:Im going to start on these today b/c this may take me awhile..lol.Im not sure about going with the grain, I have always heard that too. My advice is to ( and you can see Im no Ann Landers lol) just carpet it. Or look at those footprints as " oh how sweet", when they are grown and moved out you will miss their footprints.If you still want to scrud it I would suggest Dawn....its a degreaser and I use it for everything!

Catch said...

Chana: thank you and you have a lovely weekend too my dear friend.

Bazaa: Do you own a gun? That should pretty much put a stop to him doing any thing in your garden! And doesnt it make you mad that other people let their pets roam ??? I would give them 1 warning about their cat...its their responsibilty to keep him in their yard!!! I am kidding about shooting him...but you could fire at him and scare the crap out of him.

Catch said...

Laura: yes he is a doll! And the pictures of him in his tent were so cute...you have a beautiful child Laura. You have a good weekend too Sweety.

Beady: thats a tough one as I like them both, but if I had to pick one it would be the sunset, someone had a picture of a sunset on their blog the other day ( was it you?) and it was a gorgeous picture! Have a good week end Beads!

Christine said...

Reminds me of that Country Song by Joe Nichols about, Tequila and his girlfriend...Hilarious song.

Have a great Weekend!

What would be your favorite place to go on vacation?

Michelle said...

Do you have a tried and true solution to getting food stains out of kids' clothes? Especially after they've already been washed? It feels like I've tried everything, but nothing works.

And in the future - for those stains that are still to come - what secrets do you have for me to get them out prior to washing? What magic do I do to the shirt beforehand before washing so stains will be gone?! I'm tired of spending $ on clothes only to have them all stained up! LOL

Catch said...

Kristin: by all means...BOTH! lol....actually when I go to eat with friends I usually have the margaritas...but have been known to have a little martini too!

TC: no..I usually just lower them with beer or vodka! Now arent you glad you ask? lol

Shelli: thats a good question Shell...and the Answer is....No I would not have married him. The only thing that ever came out of my marriage that was good was my kids. And of course it helped make me as independent as I am...but...as I always say...hindskin is foreskin.....something like that! lol

Catch said...

Christine: I love the ocean so my idea of the perfect vacation would be renting a beach house in Hilton Head and having all my family with me for 1 week. We have thought of that before but its hard to get a time where everyone is on vacation and able to go. But it would be super!

Michelle: My mother does the laundry here and she is super conscious of stains. She always pretreats with shout or if its something that might be hard to get out she washes it out by hand in the sink before throwing it in the washer. if something has grease on it she pretreats with Dawn dish soap. Gaige had a shirt with chocolate all over it and she got it all out! And she has a little brush that she uses to get stains out to. Boy you ask the right person about laundry stains! My Mom is like Heloise...lol

Pendullum said...

One tequila!
two tequila!
Floor!!!
Tequila will kill ya...

I had a real good friend that used to swear by tequila... if you are in a real good mind space... are happy... have a shot of tequila on ice with limes...
and yu will have the most terrific dreams...
do not do it if you are not happy as nightmares will ensue...

Now my question...
Not so pressing... but lets us into your world...
What do you have planned for your weekend???

oldfartswife said...

hi catch

What 3 letters change a girl into a woman ?

have a great weekend!

Lori's Minute said...

My question is "What is more important to you, making yourself happy and then others or making others happy so then you feel better?"

Catch said...

Pendullum: hmm...Ill have to try the tequila for some good dreams! I never heard that before...all I know is it can give you some bad "morning afters"!! This weekend I plan to swim in my pool, possibly do a little shopping and maybe eat out. I just got some new books so I might get into one of those. I am just going to relax. Nothing planned.

oldfarts wife: I know the answer to that....MAN!!!Ive been around the block a couple of times Sweety! lol.

Catch said...

Lori: I like for everyone to be happy...including me...lol. I like to make people happy and I like to make me happy so Im not sure I can pick one or the other. I think when you know you have made someone else happy it makes you happy with yourself.

oldfartswife said...

haha!! catch wrong answer
the answer is AGE. but I like yours better!!!
Float around the pool once for me

Mr. Fabulous said...

Okay, I'll play. The aliens land and get out their anal probes. Do you scream and run and struggle to get away, or do you hike up your skirt and spread your cheeks and taunt them to do their worst?

Catch said...

oh Fab....what a choice! As soon as I see an alien Im going to scream and run whether they are probing anus's or not. But just for the record...the only way they are going to probe mine is to kill me first!

Old farts wife: age, huh? I so figured it was men..I guess I dont know everything! lol

Overwhelmed! said...

Here's my question: What's your absolute favorite meal to prepare and eat?

By the way, thanks for your comment on my post about Spiritual Nourishment, http://overwhelmedwithjoy.blogspot.com/2006/08/spiritual-nourishment-thats-long.html.

I love your idea of rejuvinating yourself by going to bed by 8 or 9 p.m. on occassion. I told my husband last night, as I was heading for bed at 11 p.m., that I was going to try this. He simply snorted at me. :)

Catch said...

my very favorite meal is...fried pork chops, potatoes ( quartered) boiled and browned in the pork chop grease,tiny peas and cottage cheese..that is my favorite meal to eat....but I rarely have it...lol..

I always feel rejuvinated when I go to bed early at least one night a week. Try it!!!

Lori said...

Hi Catch!

Bluepaintred said...

i LOVED this post catch. I learned so many cool things and sooo much about you as a person, not just a blogger. what a great idea!

Catch said...

Lori: so good to see you back, we missed ya sweety!

Blue: well thank you! but where is your next question?

Michelle said...

Thanks for the advice about the Dawn, I happen to use that dish detergent :)

Catch said...

Michelle: I use dawn for everything from stains, scrubbing the dog, to washing the car...lol

Phats said...

Hi catch
if you could be reincarnated into any animal what would you choose?

if you were stuck on an island, what person, book, and outfit would you select to have with you?

Dr.John said...

Did you ever use Vicks as a child?

Catch said...

Phats: good questions!!! If I could be any animal I would choose to be a horse. I think horses are majestic.... I love to watch them run...I use to have horses and I will never forget them.

If I was stuck on an island the book I would choose would be any book by Ann Rule, the outfit would be a soft pair of shorts and a bathing suit top because I would be so hot ( with no a/c) and the person would be Kevin Costner. And if Kevin was there I wouldnt even look for a way off the island for a few weeks...lol

Dr John: Did I ever use Vicks as a child??? I still use it as an adult! When I get a cold I always smear plenty of Vicks on my throat and chest. It makes me quit coughing and opens up my head and I can breathe.I always used it on my kids when they were little too.

boneman said...

yeah? no kiddin?
but, dang don't wanna waste it.
Hey, askin' a lady in a bathtub I wanna be really nice.
Not just ask some stupid question then
touch her warm back with some ice.

Then again she'de stand up so quickly, and though
getting an eyeful, probably also a blow
about m'head and face smack, bang pow!
oooomaybe I shouldn't have done THAT. ow.

OK, though it may be worth it, still....
I'm supposed t'just leave one question.
OK, money, material, and all the technical help
at your bidding....What would be YOUR invention?

Catch said...

My invention would be a refrigerator that cleans itself...inside and out. I hate cleaning out the fridge...so it would need a garbage disposal inside of it so you could just drop everything in it. And the shelves in it would be made up of something that always looks sparkling clean!!!

You put that ice on my back and I am gonna smack ya upside the head! ;))

kristi said...

Catch if you could go anywhere on vacation right now, no matter the cost...Where would you go???

Catch said...

I would go to Hilton Head in S Carolina...and stay for a month! In a beach house. I would have my family there for 2 weeks and 2 weeks of just me and Mom. I would walk on the beach everyday and read my books and just do nothing but relax. We would eat out every night and do a little shopping everyday. When I was at the beach house I would live in a bathing suit.I owuld become..." Gidget". ;))...an old Gidget.

your said...

phentermine nice :)

Mimi said...

Ummmmmmmm

I can't think of anything! I am no fun! LOL!

Have a great weekend!Love ya!:)

Catch said...

love you too Mimi....hope your having a good weekend as well.

Mommy off the Record said...

Question: how do you NOT blog on weekends?

Signed,
A blogoholic (in recovery)

Bluepaintred said...

my question is this. how do i tell hubs that I like captian jack on DDR and if I want to do it over and over and over again for two hours its my business. how also do i ignore the fact i am making him listen to the same song over and over and the fact that by teh end i am sweaty and smelly?

Catch said...

Mommy off the record: I have a lot of other things to do so I try not to spend too much time on the internet, I could easily become addicted...but I try not to..when I first started playing scrabble online I played it all the time...but I started slacking off b/c I wasnt getting anything else done! And I think when I dont blog on the weekends it kinda gives me a break so I can think of fun things or interesting things to blog about during the week.

Blue: first of all you need to get some headphones so he doesnt have to listen to the same song over and over..when your all sweaty and smelly go straight to the shower...do not pass go, do not collect $200. Its much easier to tell him how much you like the song and DDR when you have fresh clothes on and are smelling like a French whore. ( lol) he may even try to have his way with you!!! Thats my advice and Im stickin to it! ;))

boneman said...

Yes'm,...no ice.
That wouldn't be nice.
Though, the view would be worth it.
OK, I'm coming with the ice....

(smack!)
"oh, phit!"
Yeah, but, it was.
wirth it, because....

TC said...

Blimey, Catch!

You're going to have to extend the old place - it's getting crowded in here! ;)

Tina Dray said...

Prefer a glass or two of wine myself.

Did you have agood weekend?
What did you get up too?

Catch said...

Boneman: ice will get you no where Boneman....lol

TC: I know ..isnt it great? I love a crowd. Im gonna have to get some burgers on the grill for you guys.

Tina: Yes its been a quiet relaxing weekend. My cousin came Saturday and we walked , then she came Sunday and we went to get ice cream! I have just been toiling around the house...havent even been in the pool yet this weekend. I just put a pork roast in the oven so we will have a nice dinner today.

Catch said...

oops...she came Friday and then she came last night ( Sat) and we got ice cream...got my days mixed up.

starbender said...

Star:I like it if I can slam it down...lol..geese you guys probably all think I am an alcoholic...lol...I rarely drink....only when I go out with friends and we are all drinking.

LauraJ said...
