5QF ~ January 20

Yesterday was an AWESOME was my birthday!

What did I do, you ask?

I was served breakfast and lunch in bed, where I stayed ALL.DAY.LONG. I read, watched tv and napped.

I loved every second of it.


We even let the big kids skip school so they could be at home with us. :-)

Ian made one of my favourite meals and once Julie came home from Girls Club at the church, we had the birthday cake that Sam baked for me. (He's kind of an awesome baker)

It was a really good day.

And now it's Friday :) And what happens around here on Fridays...? I play along with Mama M's Five Question Friday. So glad she is back home from her vacation!

Ok, let's get to it.

~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~

1. Where do you hide the reeeally good snacks?

It depends. If the snacks are M&M related, then I hide them in my nightstand. Otherwise I hide them in one of the crispers in the fridge. Or, as we call them, rotters. Crispy things go in, I forget them, and they come out all rotted.

Oh my gosh. I can't believe I told you that.

Moving on.

2. Do u keep your vehicle clean or am I the only one who has things falling out of their van?

Every so often Ian will go through our van and clean it all out. Then bit by bit, the crap returns and it gets all messed up once again.

Yesterday I opened the side door and an empty pop can fell out.

Can't believe I just told you that either.

3. Have you ever been to Vegas?

No, but Ian has and he would love to take me. I'm not much of a gambler. I'll take $20 to the casino, lose it, win it back and then stick it in my purse and I'm ready to go.

I've heard the shows are awesome though. Someday we'll go.

4. Warm room light blankets or cold room warm snuggly blanket?

I don't really like blankets at all. I get overheated and then I start fussing and it's just not good. Then I need to turn on the fan so I can cool off and settle down.

So if I had to choose, a light blanket.

5. What is the worst airplane/flying experience you've ever had?

The last time I was on an airplane was about fifteen years ago when we flew out to British Columbia for a friend's wedding. But I wasn't asked about WHEN, now was I?

Focus Kate.

I can't help it. Ian put in a new air freshener in the automatic air freshener sprayer thingy and it smells AWFUL. Technically it is called "Mountain Mist" or something lame like that. It should be called RAID for the horrific smell it has. It's blowing my focus and making my head hurt.

Worst flight ever was the return flight from our honeymoon. There was a group of people at our resort that started drinking the second they arrived at the resort and didn't stop until the bus came to return us to the airport 7 days later. One lady was so drunk she threw up all over herself, her seatmate and the person in front of her on the bus. I looked at Ian and said, "Perfect. What do you want to bet she sits next to me on the plane?"

Ian just rolled my eyes at me and said something about me always assuming the worst.

We found our seats on the plane and then watched as Drunk Lady made her way down the aisle. She found her seat and climbed over a couple to sit down.

"See?" Ian smiled. "You shouldn't assume the worst."

And then... someone pointed out to her that she was in the wrong seat. She got up, walked further down the aisle and located her correct seat.

Right next to me.

"HIIIIIII!" she said, breathing her vomit breath in my face.

I just looked at Ian. "You were saying...?

  8. When I first read rotters, I thought that was some goofy Canada thing like drinking milk from a bag! :) but then I read your explanation, and died laughing. Because my house is the exact same!
