Hope everyone has fun plans for the long weekend… I’ve got plenty, can’t wait to catch you up on the flip side! Until then, here’s some five question Friday answers for you…
1. Shoes in the house – yay or nay?
I really don’t care either way, we have hardwood floors which are easy to clean, but if we had carpeting, it would be a different story. But I do teach my kids to take their shoes off and put them where they belong (do as I say, not as I do… right?). And when I’m at other people’s homes, I always try to take my shoes off at the door.
2. What do you call them- flip flops, slippers, thongs, etc?
Flip flops and sometimes fippy flops or just flips. I can’t bring myself to call them thongs but I recall my mom used to call them that when I was a teenager, much to my great embarrassment. I find it funny that back then, the mere hint of impropriety around adults made me so very uncomfortable but I guess I’d rather be a prudish teenager than the opposite – so much less regret.
3. What song are you almost embarrassed to admit you know all the lyrics to?
A plethora of country songs maybe, but let’s be honest, knowing all the Wiggles songs I know, nothing else I could admit to would even come close. Simon and I could be quite the performing duo if we ever fell on hard times, I bet we’d make a killing at children’s festivals.
4. What is the best quality to have in a friend?
Honesty. Authenticity. Dependability. And someone who doesn’t hold grudges, at least not petty ones – not that I’m in the business of giving my friends something to hold grudges against.
5. Do you know what you want for Christmas?
A memorable holiday filled with family and happy times. The Christmas season is my favorite time of year and so many of my happy memories are from the holiday season so I hope the same thing for my boys. And this year I’d love for Liam to get the real reason for the season, for him to grasp the gift we, as Christians, believe we were given.
