Yay! Since I’m at home, waiting on the air conditioner repair man, I’m going to play along with Mama M’s Five Question Friday! I haven’t played in a bit, but hope to get back into the swing of things! After all, being a better blogger is #5 on my Summer Bucket List!
1. If you had to choose, how would you prefer to choose to spend money...on landscaping or a pool?
Pool. Although, we have one of those inflate the top ring above ground jobs, and it’s been really great, so landscaping would be ok, but I’m not really very good at keeping up with things like weeding. OH! Would hardscaping count? That’s where you do the decks and patios and walkways and firepits and stuff – I TOTALLY want to do that!
2. (Scott likes to get things stirred up...) Death penalty, yay or nay?
I think that the death penalty can be appropriate. There are offenses that people commit that are so heinous, I cannot imagine the thought of our tax dollars being used for 50, 60, 70 years to provide food, shelter, and medical care. Tim McVeigh, for example – he’s the guy that orchestrated the Oklahoma City bombing. You blew up a freaking DAY CARE, amongst other things. So, yeah. I’m not opposed to the death penalty.
3. What's the worst thing your kid has gotten into when you turned your back/blogged/showered/blinked?
Can I tell a “my husband wasn’t looking” story? Is that ok? ‘Cause I was at work, but this one is for sure the best one we’ve got.
The kids were little.. In fact it was about a week before Jeep’s 5th birthday, so they were 2,3 & 4. The boys had come to report to daddy that Melissa was playing in nail polish while he was trying to cook dinner. He went to find that she’d gotten some on the carpet, so he set to work on getting that cleaned up. While he did that, the boys went into my bedroom to watch TV on my bed, only it evolved into some form of football game. The story, to this day, is that Jeep said “hut!” and Eli kicked him. Off the bed. And it broke his arm.
I got a seriously frantic phone call at that point that literally was just “You need to come home. RIGHT. NOW.” I went home, he took Jeep for X-Rays and a nice blue cast. I don’t recall if dinner ever really occurred or not!
4. How often do you REALLY go to the dentist?
I used to be really, really good about it. Every 6 months, like clockwork. Now, not so much. Part of that comes from having no insurance, and part from having great teeth – I’ve never had a cavity filled (the one cavity I ever had was just starting in a baby tooth – we found it when the tooth fell out.) So, it’s not a good thing or anything, but I guess I only go if I feel like I need to.
5. What is your favorite animal (doesn't have to be a pet-type animal)?
Ohmigosh, this one is the hardest, because I really like most animals. I would seriously run one of those rescue centers. Not snakes, though. Can’t do snakes.
Ok, in our area, like 45 minutes from here I guess, we have a really cool Feline Rescue Center with lots of big cats. And they were awesome. And amazing. And I loved them.
And horses. I love those, too.
And dolphins, whales, sharks….
Plus my pet-type animals.
Yeah, nope. Can’t pick a favorite. Sorry.
Well… Still no word from the A/C guy. (He’s not real excited to be coming to my house anyway, but that’s a post for another day!) Hopefully he shows up soon, I’m missing field day at school for this! If you decide to play along with 5QF, be sure to pop over to Mama M’s and link up!
