Questions for Friday, 3/12: (Thanks to Erica, Erin, Renee, Pam, and Mama M for their question suggestions! Wanna be linked in a future 5QF? Mosey on over here and offer up your best questions!)
1. How much time do you spend on the computer a day?
I do believe that this question ranks up there with asking a woman her age, weight and natural hair color. It just screams “DENY…REDIRECT…MAKE COUNTER ACCUSATIONS” That being said, I’ll answer with total honesty (crosses fingers) I think I spend about (getting shifty eyes) an hour a day (waiting on the lighting to hit me) on the computer. If I spend more time than that, it is usually because I am doing research (yeah…that sounded good) or working on one of my articles I write (yup, they’ll believe that!) I would never let chores go because of the computer (OMGosh…I think they have been reading these thoughts…CRUD!)
2. Will you pay for your children’s college or raise them to pay for their own way?
The Head Crayon and I will have money put back for The Scribblers for their adult future. It will be their choice if they want to use that for college, go for a scholarship, invest it or blow it on a swingin’ pad with a circular hot tub and beads in all the door frames.
3. Have you ever been in a car accident?
I was driving just the other day and looked down for a minute. When I looked back up, HE was standing in the middle of the road and it was just too late to swerve. He was a cute little lizard and he was saying something about “Just 15 minutes with…” before I hit him. Poor little booger.
Seriously though, I went through a 5 year spell of “bumper car-itis” I don’t know what my problem was, but I had a habit of bumping telephone poles, parked cars, concrete poles, whatever. I have since recovered using 12 steps (Meaning my husband told me I would be taking 12 steps (walking) everywhere I needed to go if I didn’t shape up)
4. What is your favorite book?
There is not one in particular, but I love all the books that Dean Koontz has written. My favorite one of his is not the particular story, but the fact that he signed it for me! My husband is friends with someone who actually knows him well and for Christmas one year they collaborated together and got me a signed copy of the book and sent it to me. I had no idea about it, so imagine my surprise to get an autographed copy in the mail.
5. Do you make your bed everyday?
I actually try to, but I have learned that made beds are magnets for small children to use a jump pad. I have a beautiful quilt set with all the matching useless pillows to decorate it. The pillows are used daily for impromptu pillow fights as they bounce to their hearts delight. I don’t look at it as making the bed anymore, but more like being a Zamboni before a hockey game…I am just prepping the field of play
