I feel like this has been a forever week – at least until last night when I surprised to realize it was going to be Friday when I woke up this morning. Does the ecard below apply to anyone else?
1. Did you have any homecoming traditions?
When I was in high school, sure. Each class spent the weeks leading up to homecoming decorating a float and then participating in the parade. Being the social butterfly that I was/am and also a class officer, I always loved making the float. It was endless hours of hanging out with friends and being “creative.” But mostly I was in it for the boys, let’s be honest. In 9th and 10th grade I was too young to date, but while making the float we all got to hang out together which was like one big group date without the making out (at least not by me, I should not speak for others). But in present day, no traditions, we are going to a local high school’s parade tonight, but that is more for the company we will be with (and the candy), but maybe we will make it a tradition.
2. Do you ask your spouse before spending money?
For small purchases (less than $50) we both just make them but for larger items, we do usually discuss the purchase first, but not to ask permission, really just for input and because I think large purchases should be discussed by spouses (you know, unless they fall under the gift category, I prefer to be surprised). I cannot imagine asking permission to spend money – but that doesn’t mean we sneak purchases either, we are just an open book with each other when it comes to spending because ours is a God-based partnership, not a dictatorship.
3. If you could be famous for something what would it be?
Having more money than I know what to do with and therefore being a thoughtful and generous philanthropist (I wonder if I wish long enough that I was a philanthropist that it will come true – why doesn’t independent wealth just grow on trees?) That said, it would also be cool to be famous for finding a cure for cancer, sailing around the world (not that I have ever sailed before in my life), being an author or musician (not that I can carry a tune in a bucket) or being the world’s best mom/wife (because that’s totally my reality – ha).
4. Have you ever seriously thought you were going crazy?
The word seriously threw me off because I was about to say, doesn’t ever parent feel that way at some point? But if we are talking seriously, then no. I suppose we all have our moments but I can realize those are just moments. I fear the thought of realizing you are going crazy – knowing that you are losing your mental grip. That would be totally terrifying and knowing that Alzheimer’s runs in my family makes me fear growing older just that much more because that disease is brutal and heartbreaking. On to happy thoughts…
5. How do you eat your steak? Burger? (as in, well done, medium, still moo-ing…)
My burgers I prefer well done, I do not like pink in hamburger meat but for a steak I will take it with a slight pink line in the center – would that be medium-well? If I ask for well-done in a steak, it’s usually too dry and that is a very sad thing. But I don’t like to see anything with the appearance of blood on my plate, no thank you.
Linking up with Mama M for Five Question Friday.
