    Thanks for the questions Lynn.

    1. What do you eat during times of stress?
    Sweets, preferably chocolate

    2. Will you buy something food related with your refund?
    We already got our refund and we got a big play structure for Sam that has a big picnic table as part of it, kinda food related we've had lots of snacks at the table

    3. What did you eat for breakfast today, tax day?
    We had toast with peanut butter and raspberry preserves


    4. What are your favorite foods that begin with T, like tax? (getting desperate here) lol
    Tuna, tapenade, tomatos, trout (preferably smoked), turkey, truffles (chocolate), tangerines, tart-n-tinys (remember these candies). I guess there are lots of T foods that I like.

    5. Would you go to a great restaurant for a free meal if you had to listen to somone talk about something you were not interested in (time share, estate planning, etc)....
    I guess it would depend on the restaurant, I'm pretty good at tuning out stuff but I hate the hard sell. I would probably lean towards not going!

    1. What do you eat during times of stress?
    Usually chips & salsa or something crunchy!


    2. Will you buy something food related with your refund?
    Refund? What's that! We're still waiting on the IRS to let us know if we can claim a certain exemption on DH's overseas wages and if he can't we're going to owe almost $4000 to State & Fed!


    3. What did you eat for breakfast today, tax day?
    Pinwheels, crackers & dip, chocolate chip cookies, brownies, a Twix and a Milky Way. (It's 'treat' day at work to celebrate my b-day this month! )


    4. What are your favorite foods that begin with T, like tax? (getting desperate here) lol
    Tamales, Trix, Toast, Tomatoes, and Turkey!


    5. Would you go to a great restaurant for a free meal if you had to listen to somone talk about something you were not interested in (time share, estate planning, etc)....
    Yes! I have done that before! DH & I went to two timeshare presentations when we were in Branson a few years ago. At one timeshare presentation we received $50 cash and free tickets to Ripley's Believe it or Not museum and at the other presentation we recevied a free dinner and free show tickets! Definitely worth it for an hour of my time!

    Forgot to add that when we went to Mexico last year we went to a timeshare presentation and got $50 cash, free parasailing for both of us, and a bottle of tequila!! lol

    1. What do you eat during times of stress?

    Popcorn or chocolate.........sometimes popcorn with chocolate (they're a great combination)

    2. Will you buy something food related with your refund?

    We've already gotten our refund back and it's long gone. We used it to help re-pay our adoption expenses.

    3. What did you eat for breakfast today, tax day?

    I had blueberry waffles with the kids this morning.

    4. What are your favorite foods that begin with T, like tax? (getting desperate here) lol

    Tacos, Tamales and lets not forget Tiramisu!!!

    5. Would you go to a great restaurant for a free meal if you had to listen to somone talk about something you were not interested in (time share, estate planning, etc)....

    Maybe but it would depend on which restaurant it was. It would have to be somewhere really unusual and unique, not one of our normal places.

    1. What do you eat during times of stress?

    During times of light stress, I tend to just munch, munch constantly, and it could be on just about anything. During times of extreme stress I eat very lightly and tend to lose lots of weight.

    2. Will you buy something food related with your refund?

    We almost never get refunds. I won't be buying any new appliances since we are leaving the UK soon and can't use them in the US without an adaptor.

    3. What did you eat for breakfast today, tax day?

    A Poptart, a piece of toast with cream cheese, a banana, and a cup of tea. Breakfast of champions, eh?

    4. What are your favorite foods that begin with T, like tax? (getting desperate here) lol

    Tea. . . tomatoes. . . turtles (the candy). . . tamales. . .

    5. Would you go to a great restaurant for a free meal if you had to listen to somone talk about something you were not interested in (time share, estate planning, etc)....

    No. Listening to the pitch would ruin my dinner.
