5QF ~ June 1

Oh Friday... how I've been longing for your arrival. Welcome, welcome.

The first of June... where is this year going?? Our sweet Mattie will be 1 year old on the 9th.

I've had a very sore and scratchy throat this week and a cough that makes me sound like a 100 year old smoker. My sides and back ache from all the coughing.

I'm wrapping up week 6 of my temp assignment. The workload is heavy and there is a lot of pressure to produce, but I think I'm holding my own. I sure do love when payday rolls around let me tell you. Makes it all worthwhile.

Yesterday Matthew wouldn't do any of his little "tricks" for me, just for Ian. I wanted to cry. But tonight? He went NUTS when he saw that I was home.

Jordan was wearing a lovely party dress all afternoon. She told me she wanted to be a doctor when she grew up. I told her that was a very noble profession. Then she said "just joking...I'm going to work at McDonalds."

SO jealous of my American friends - their kids are wrapping up their school year this week and we still have a whole month to go.

It's time for Mama M's Five Question Friday blog hop!

1. What were you scared of as a kid?

What WASN'T I afraid of as a kid? Fear has been such a part of my life as far back as I can remember.

I was often the target of bullies at school, and I lived with a daily fear that they would get me after school.

When my dad left us, I was afraid that I would lose my mom too, and then I'd be alone.

I feared failure like you wouldn't believe. I had to be the best or I wouldn't even try.

 2. Do you sleep well in a hotel?

Yes. I love everything about hotels, and I always sleep to sleep very heavily in hotel rooms.

 3. If you could meet any celebrity, dead or alive, who and why?

I can't think of anyone, really. I used to want to meet Clay Aiken but that's over now.

4. It's a hot summer day. Do you prefer to be pool side or at the beach?

Beach! I love digging my toes in the sand, listening to the waves hit the shore, seagulls making their seagully noises (I'm sure there's a proper name for that but I'm at a loss right now).

When you go to the pool what do you hear? Other people's kids crying/acting up, you're smack dab next to some stranger, and it's crowded and noisy. At the beach you can spread out and not be all up in some stranger's pocket.

5. What is your favorite summer dish?

Potato salad.

Specifically, my MOTHER'S potato salad. Best in the whole world.

I sure do hope my Mama is reading this right now... about my love her her potato salad...just sayin. Mom. Just sayin.

That's a wrap for today, peeps! Happy Friday!

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

      I understand your Clay Aiken thing, we are over him too, no need to say more.And my husband can't wait for potato salad each spring, I put it in his lunch and he is so happy;) I made it last week and he is already for more, as are our kids! School is out for us, so let the summer begin (with that I mean a break from online schooling, of my 4 children that I need to oversee and teach. So really a break for me from 4th grade to 11th grade and a special needs child too! So I sigh a big sigh of relief for 10 wonderful weeks of NO SCHOOL!! I pray for you and your Jon Kate and for great memories created this summer too! Yvonne In SC, USA.
