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 :)
