    1. had a hair cut?
    Um.....August. Yes, I think I had one in August. Before that it was the previous August.
    2. enjoyed a great meal?
    Two weeks ago we had a soup dinner at a friends house.
    3. went to the theater?
    It's been a while on this. If I count our field trip, then last April. We'll be going again in 2 weeks. If I don't count our field trips...it's been about 3 years (I'm assuming you don't mean a movie theater).
    4. had a good cry?
    3 years ago, when my Grammy passed away.
    5. spent the last few dollars on yourself?
    I bought a Sonic drink for myself on Thursday morning.
    6. had a free day doing whatever you wanted to do?
    Should be today, but I've been working hard at school.
    7. took a friend out, your treat?
    Does that count my parents? Last weekend.
    8. got down on your knees and prayed?
    This morning.
    9. took a leasurely drive and really loved it?
    This past summer. Around July.
    10. watched an elderly couple in love?
    I get embarrased to watch couples. I feel like I'm intruding.

    2. enjoyed a great meal?
    I like food- all meals are great :toofunny: My mom visited me 2-3 weeks ago and made me lasagna. Yummmm!
    3. went to the theater?
    Um, movie or regular? Movies- 3 or 4 years. We take a field trip to see a student produced play at a theater every February.
    4. had a good cry?
    Yesterday. It has been happening a lot lately since I was laid off (from PT job). I miss my 'family'.
    5. spent the last few dollars on yourself?
    It is just me....
    6. had a free day doing whatever you wanted to do?Today since I no longer have a PT job.

    I didn't take her out, but I fed someone all last weekend...

    Not the down-on-my-knees praying type. I was probably 5 years old or so.

    1. had a hair cut? My husband trimmed it the other day.

    2. enjoyed a great meal? I enjoy great meals frequently...it's what I do!

    3. went to the theater? I went on a school trip recently, but "personally" I haven't been in a couple of years. (movies)

    4. had a good cry? I don't remember...but probably not too long ago. I have lots of little cries, as in one minute deals, when I think about sad things as a drive home from work. It's weird.

    5. spent the last few dollars on yourself? Last few dollars? I don't really know what you mean. But I pretty much buywhatever I want, but I don't have expensive taste or habits...or children. :)

    6. had a free day doing whatever you wanted to do? During my fall break. And I did nothing.

    7. took a friend out, your treat? I took my little sister out a couple of weeks ago...does that count?

    8. got down on your knees and prayed? When I was a child.

    9. took a leisurely drive and really loved it? We took "Sunday Drives" frequently growing up, but I don't find driving at all leisurely now.

    10. watched an elderly couple in love? Not sure...

    Just thought it would be fun to do this. :)
