It’s Friday and for once, I’m not happy about it. Friday is halfway between Wednesday and Sunday which means our vacation is half over!
But since it’s Friday, I thought we could have some fun and take a quiz. Quizzes are fun, unless you are in school, and this is not a school quiz. This is a how-well-do-you-know-Michelle quiz. The first person to get them all right wins a t-shirt that says “My blogger friend went on vacation and all I got was this lousy t-shirt.”
If you really want it, that is. Otherwise, I’ll just say a Hail Mary for the intentions of any person answering any question correctly. Better than a lousy t-shirt.
Alright, here we go.
#1 The car is packed, the kids are loaded up, everybody is ready to go. What last chore is Michelle doing before leaving on vacation?

b. Folding a last load of laundry so the clothes in the dryer aren’t wrinkled when we get back.
c. Cleaning out the cat’s litter box.
d. Shampooing the living room rug because it will have plenty of time to dry while we’re gone.
