How about a little five question Friday at the end of the day? I’m game if you are!
1. Do you close the bathroom door when you are home alone?
Nope. I don’t even close the bathroom door when my immediate family is home, unless I need to take a book (if you know what I mean). Well, I guess I shouldn’t say that, sometimes I go in there and lock the door just to have a moment of peace, otherwise I’m likely to end up entertaining the children while I’m there. There’s the glamorous side of motherhood no one tells you about: potty breaks = peace (unless there’s a child pounding on the door or laying down outside of it, trying to get a look at you). Also, I should note, Simon HATES that I don’t shut the door but there are a bunch of things he does that bugs me and I realize it’s my own hang-up so I deal with them and therefore, he can deal with my one imperfection (ahem).
2. You have to walk around with a word on your forehead. That word describes you. One word. What is it?
That is a hard one… anyone have an immediate answer? Initially I thought to be sassy and picked fabulous. Then I thought, self-helpy and thought: trying. Then I thought literal and went with: Michelle (not technically a word, I know). And then I drew a blank…
3. What store do you refuse to shop at and why?
Despite my love of their cologne when I was in college, I now refuse to shop at Abercrombie. I find the whole store ridiculous (same with Hollister). I could say Coach but I totally buy one of their purses in a heartbeat if I could justify the expense (I like finding bargains at Target for $6).
4. If you participated in arranged marriages for your child(ren), who would you choose for your child(ren)?
My friend Tracey’s daughters, Keila and Ellery. Liam is seven weeks older than Keila and Jack is 10 weeks younger than Ellery so they are basically the same ages. We joke all the time about them ending up together but really we do just hope they (at least) remain friends forever. Plus with those two girls, we’d only have one set of in-laws to vie with for our boys’ time and we already love their parents so we’d just all have great family holidays. See, perfect.
5. If you could pick how and when you would die, would you?
Yes, most definitely because I’d much rather die in my sleep at a very, very old age than say, next week in a car accident or in another decade from cancer. It would most definitely be nice to pick how to die. Though given the choice, I don’t think I’d want to know when exactly I was going to die. I’d hate living, just knowing how many days I had left.
