Where is the year going?


Is it really almost June? Time flies when you're having . . .

a. Car issues.
b. Play practice until 10p or later every night.
c. Haters for Co-workers
d. Youngest child is graduating from high school
e. All of the above

Things feel out of control right now so I'm hoping some time this summer I'll get a nice vacation. "Calgon, take me away!"

Now . . . for 5QF . . . or Five Question Friday . . . or the only time I blog these days :)

1. Do you have an iPhone and, if so, how do you get apps and what are your favorites?

2. What is your fondest memory of K-3rd grade?

3. What makes you cringe at the thought of touching?

4. If you could have any celebrity show up on your doorstep who would it be and why?

5. What would you say is your best physical feature?

Copy and past these to your blog, or just answer them in my comments area. Have fun. And be sure to thank Mama M!!

1. Do you have an iPhone and, if so, how to you get apps and what are your favorites?

Yes . . . I DO have an iPhone and as much as I hate to admit it, Steve Jobs, I LOVE it! My loving husband convinced me to get one when he bought his. I struggled with spending the money and figured it was WAY to much phone for me. But now . . . I'd be lost without it! Some of my favorite apps: BEJEWELED (I'm a junky), Backgrounds (I'm constantly changing mine) and FMC (a great tracker for that lovely time of the month. This will make my kids laugh!!)! On a weird side note, I stop my DVR when an iPhone commercial comes on so I can see all the apps shown, then I look them up . . . just in case I can't live without one :)

2. What is your fondest memory of K-3rd grade?

Some of you might think this is a bad memory . . . myself included . . . but it's really not. When I was in Kindergarten we lived in a pretty rough neighborhood in Seattle. So as a 5 year old (and my brother was 4) we really had to stick up for ourselves. Needless to say, I developed quite a "colorful" repertoire of words. I got upset at my brother for something he did to me (which was nearly every minute of every day and probably all he did was follow me to school, which was embarrassing!!) and I let loose . . . "with the mother of all bad words" (A Christmas Story anyone?) and called him a little f*cker. Can you just imagine a 5 year old spewing those words? Of course, my brother ran home and tattled on me.

So my dad washed my mouth out with soap. Ewww. But my dad, the tender hearted daddy that he is, felt so awful, that he took me down to Piggly Wiggl
y and let me choose a whole package of cookies . . . my favorites at the time . . . chocolate covered graham crackers . . .


all for me . . . no sharing . . . yummmmmm. Have any of you done the "soap" treatment to your own children? After my experience, I vowed I would never do that to my own kids. Well . . . that lasted until I had my second son. :)


3. What makes you cringe at the thought of touching?

I cringe at touching my own wounds. All I have to do is unwrap it and I'm ready to pass out. I can look at other's stitches or surgeries or profusely bleeding wounds, but I can't look or touch my own. And I've had my fair share of things in the past 2 years!

4. If you could have any celebrity show up on your doorstep who would it be and why?

There are too many to choose from. Do I have to choose just one? Okay . . . I will :( I think I'd like to have Julia Roberts knock on my door. I think we'd be great friends . . . based on interviews I've seen she has a fun outlook on her life . . . and she knits!


5. What would you say is your best physical feature?

I'd have to say my fingernails. Weird, huh? I have awesome nails and many times I get compliments from people asking who did my nails and if they're acrylic or gel. I used to look at my parents hands and wonder where I got such great nails (not that they have bad ones, but mine just aren't shaped like theirs). Then one day I was visiting my grandma in her nursing home and VOILA . . . I looked at her hands and it was like looking at my own. Very cool that I have something of hers to carry on.

Ok...take a whack at it :)

Life and Five Question Friday

WoW! Exactly a month since my last post and I'm going to revert to my usual "Five Question Friday" staple. Life has just been one cRaZY thing after another since the boys and I were in the play. Here are just a few highlights:

I turned 51. Woo Hoo!!I may be losing yet another job (but positive thinking is leading me to new possibilities!)My brother was stabbed and almost didn't live to tell the tale (a couple of flat lines in the OR and a VERY long scar from his sternum down past his bellybutton are evidence)
My youngest brother and his family were here for a visit (I haven't seen them since 2007)And . . . I'm set for ONE more surgery on my shoulder. And this will be the last one . . . absolutely . . . positively!!PHEW! I think that's enough for the summer.

Now . . . on to the questions for the day. If you want to play along, copy and paste the questions to your blog (or just answer them in my comments area), link back to the fabulous Mama M and you…

The things we do . . .

Woo Hoo! Mama M's Five Question Friday has one of my submitted questions. Thank you, Mama!

That's a HUGE thank you to Mama M since it's been a tough couple of weeks for her family after a tragedy hit them. If you're a praying sort of person, they could benefit from them. I know they have mine.

If you'd like to join in, I'd love to read your answers. Just comment or hook on up with the linky.

And here we go . . .

1. Would you rather be on ABC's Extreme Home MakeOver or TLC's What not to Wear?

Easy choice here. I already know how to dress and look F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!! Thanks to Carol Tuttle and her "Dressing Your Truth" and "Energy Profiling" systems. Check it out.

The only problem with Extreme Home Makeover is this . . .


His screaming drives me NUTS!!

I liked him SO much better when he was on Trading Spaces with cute little Paige Page.


He wasn't so . . . IN YOUR FACE obnoxious!

2. Do you have any tattoos?

Well . . . yes and no. I would …

Green Peppers and Volkswagens

I'm with just about everyone else I know . . . I'm SO glad it's the weekend! With one exception: we woke up to 5 inches of snow . . . AGAIN!!! I want to hunt down Punxsutawney Phil and strangle the little varmint. I think he lied!!

Here's this week's Five Question Friday, and once again Mama M has used one of my questions (did I really submit this many?? haha). Link on up and join in. I love going through the entries and reading what others answer. At times it let's me know I'm not so CrAZy!

1. Can you drive a stick shift?

I certainly can. The very first car I drove when I was 13, out on the country roads (as if that makes it ok!), was a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle. Then when I finally got my permit, we had an old brown pickup with "3 on the tree" and I learned to drive stick. I didn't realize there was any other option. Now days, it seems like it's a rare thing if someone knows how to drive a stick. I LOVE driving a stick . . . you c…
