All You Need Is Love

In the immortal words of John Lennon . . .

"Life is what happens to you when you're making other plans."

Well, that's been my life the last few months . . .

. . . oh wait! To be honest . . . that's been the quote for my life during the last 10 years. It's only taken me 50 years to realize "Oh! This is just life!!" Did I plan to get divorced? Did I plan to have a chronically ill child? Did I plan to be laid off twice last year? Did I plan to have 6 surgeries in 3 years? *Sigh* It's okay. I'm alive.

"All You Need is Love." John Lennon (Right??)

On to 5 Question Friday!! Woo hoo :D

Rules for 5QF: Copy and paste the following questions to your blog, answer them, then watch for the link back to Mama M. Feel free to answer in the comments if you don't have a blog or already wrote a post (although, for the record, she leaves the linky open until Sunday, so you have plenty of time!!)

1. If you could be a fly on any wall, which would you choose?

I saved this question for last, even though it's #1. Wow. This one really had me thinking. I even had to ask my husband. Since he's a Software Engineer you'd probably NEVER guess his answer (that was sarcasm, in case you didn't know!) . . . Steve Job's office, so he would know how to play Apple's stock.

For me . . . there are several: The Oval Office and Donald Trump's office. Can you imagine the secrets that would come out of BOTH those offices?

2. Do you budget your Christmas shopping or just get it done without budgeting?

Years ago . . . MANY years ago, I used to do my Christmas shopping all during the year and would have it done by October. Don't laugh . . . I really did. But as my boys have become older, their gifts have become more expensive. Now I have to SAVE all year and try to get it all done the week before Christmas. Hmmm . . . maybe I should go back to the "good 'ol days."

3. What is the craziest fad diet you have ever done?

Cabbage and Cayenne Pepper soup. Every day. Every meal. For 4 days. Blech!!! To the nth degree blech!

4. Is there a TV show that you have seen every episode/season of?

Ohhhhh, yes! Every episode! Two words: Gilmore. Girls.

"If you're out on the road . . . (doot, do, doot), feeling lonely, and so cold . . ."

5. What one song always pulls at your heart?

This exactly describes a relationship I had years and years ago. Enough said.

Cabbage and Cayenne Pepper? Just the thought of it might make me barf enough to lose weight! The things we do! Stopping from 5QF. Love your blog design!

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I LOVE Gilmore girls too - it was/is my favorite show of all time. I did Peace Corps for two years and missed a few episodes I think. My sister bought me the last two seasons though and I was just crushed when it ended.
Hope you have a great Halloween!
