5QF ~ October 21

This week has gone past so quickly and I seem to have accomplished very little. It's been cold and rainy and that has affected my mood and energy levels incredibly. Even with the naps I've been having this week, I still can't boost up my energy. I hope I'm not getting sick.

Today will be all about getting caught up on the housework and laundry that has fallen behind. I want to be able to go into the weekend with a clean house.

Being that it's Friday, it's time for some Five Question Friday hosted by the beautiful and funny Mama M over at My Little Life.

Chip chop... let's get to it.

1. Where do you escape to when you've had enough?

The bathroom. Seriously, it's the only place I can go for privacy.

Sometimes I get little fingers pulling on the bottom of the door while hearing "what doin', Mommy? What you doin' in der?" But not often.

I'll tell you a secret...sometimes I'm not even doing my business in there. I'm just sitting on the edge of the bathtub and reading a book. Sometimes I just close the toilet lid and sit there and pray.

Shh. Don't tell anyone or I'll have to find a new hiding spot that's legitimate.

2. What shows are you watching this fall?

Dancing With The Stars, Greys Anatomy, Desperate Housewives and a new one, Revenge. Oh mercy do I love that one. Drama, drama, drama!

If you watch Revenge too then you have to let me know because I'm dying to discuss it with someone.

3. What was the longest road trip you've ever taken and where did you go?

I've driven to Florida many times, so that would be the longest. My Mama and I would take one route down there and spread it over three days so we could shop all the way down there and all the way back.

When Ian and I drove there with the children we did it in just two days because we took a different route and he wouldn't let me stop to shop. Anywhere.

4. Do you plan on taking your kids to Disney World?

We took Sam and Julie to Disney in 2005 and then again in 2007. I'm glad we got to go back since I cried the entire time the first trip because I was so excited.

I'm hoping to be able to go back in a year or two so that Jordan and Matthew can enjoy it as well. Jordan especially because I've never known anyone to love Mickey Mouse quite like she does.

5. What is something people would surprised to know about you?

I think most people would be surprised to know how shy I am. I'm actually very shy. Small talk just about kills me, and then I end up rambling and saying all sorts of really dumb rambly stuff, which has me cringing for days afterward.

Ok, that's a wrap! I hope you have a wonderful Friday!

Head on over to Mama M's blog My Little Life to join in on the fun!



  1. Melissa8:25 a.m.

    B & I have been watching Revenge and are really enjoying it.
    Have you watched any of the new show Ringer? Sarah Michelle Gellar is in it from Buffy the Vampire Slayer...
    Now that you have your passport you can plan your next trip to Florida! :)

  2. UGH. The injustice of it. Not letting you shop AT ALL?! Not fair.
    And, I don't believe you one bit that you're shy...I've Skyped with you and you are a great conversationalist!
    PS...I need Disney tips...I know you're farther South AND East of me, so that means your trip must be shorter, but you survived it several times, so we could too, right?!
