Zzzz + Snow + Mocktails = 5QF

Yee Haw!! It's Friday and that means . . .

I get to pretend I'm going to sleep in on Saturday and Sunday, but I'll really wake up at 5:45am and not be able to go back to sleep! Yay!!

I SO look forward to that . . .


But it also means Five Question Friday . . . which I love doing. Thank you Mama M. If you want to join in, I'd love to read your answers . . . and I greatly appreciate comments . . .

. . . it makes me feel loved.

1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?

I don't know how to choose on this one . . . mainly because I'd donate to anything relating to children. I used to be a pre-school assistant director, and I saw a lot of sad, neglected children. Some days it was hard to watch these children begging for attention and affection from their parent(s), only to be ignored and rushed out the door because Mom or Dad just wanted to get home. Whitney had it right:

"I believe the children are our are future Teach them well …

Twitter . . . I Have a Bone to Pick with You

Yes . . . I have a beef with Twitter.

Why, you ask?

Look to the right . . . next to my picture. See the word "Tweet?"

That's not there so you can "tweet" me or connect to Twitter or follow my tweets.

That's my nickname . . . since I was a wee babe . . . maybe 1 or 2 years old. My mom always called me "Tweet" "Tweetie" "Tweeter" or "Tweeter Bug" . . . when I hear those names, that's me . . . I'll always answer. I even had a vanity plate in the 80s that read "Tweet."

My beef? I don't want everyone thinking you can "tweet" me. Or if I leave a comment on your blog . . . it says it's from "Tweet." Wouldn't that confuse you? I feel like I need to change my nick name on my blog now and that makes me feel sad.

But what new name fits?


I should make THEM change THEIR name! Chirpy? WOT (Waste of Time)?

We'll see....

Back to 5QF . . . and sleep.

To get myself back in the blogging "mood" I'll jump right in and do Mama M's Five Question Friday . . . yay! If you want to join in, please do. You can link in or just answer the questions when you leave me a comment. I'd love to read your answers. I promise I'll blog more. I have a bazillion things running around in my head right now that I MUST. GET. OUT!

1. Where did you meet your spouse and did you instantly know it was love?

I used to be embarrassed to say where I met Jake. Before you start thinking of any weird places like a bar (that would be weird for me!) or at the DMV . . . look no further than the World Wide Web. Yes, we met on a dating site. We're not alone. In 2008, over 100,000 marriages were credited to free dating sites, that is a lot of people . . . and a lot of carpal tunnel syndrome! Then we ended up doing some work together on a website project. If you can't work together . . . then could we stand living together? It wor…
