5 Question Friday

Yes, I know, shocker right.  All the sporadic posts since school has started, and here I am managing to do a 5 question Friday.  Blame it on going to bed at 9:40 last night.  I was exhausted, but today, I feel human again.  I'm pretty sure I won't be drooling in my business calculus class in a few hours from now.

Even though I'm am crazy busy, I'm also crazy happy, and having fun.  I'm also only slightly less sane than I was a week ago. So that should count for something.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.  Hopefully I will find a groove soon and get back to pre-writing most of my posts, so that things can return to normal, well at least around here.

1. Where did you meet your spouse and did you instantly know it was love?

I was dating my husband's best friend.  Now, before you go being all judgemental, let me explain.  We will call this friend Brandon.  I met Brandon, and he promptly took me to meet my husband John.  Every date, everything that Brandon and I did, John had to accompany us.  At first it wasn't by my choice, but then, he kinda grew on me.  He was cute, he was funny, he liked so many of the things that I did, music, movies, foods.  So it was only natural that we became friends.

Well, after a few weeks of this, I was trying to talk Brandon into taking me to a Country and Western bar so that we could go dancing.  He wanted to take me to a different place, where country music wasn't played.  I'm a farm girl, I like country.  I know how to two-step, waltz, and all the other required country dances.  Well, John saw his opportunity and said that he would go with me.  And, as they say, the rest is history.  We spent the evening together, we had tons of fun, talked, laughed, flirted.  I didn't know that he was the man I was going to marry, until a few weeks later, when he wanted to make plans with me on a Friday night, and I told him that I had a standing date on Friday nights, with my grandparents.  He simply told me that was awesome, and was Saturday night OK instead.  We were married 6 months later.  This year, we will celebrate our 12th anniversary.
2. What is your favorite room in your house?

Probably the laundry room.  It's usually always clean.  Ha!

I don't really have a favorite.  Some days the kitchen is full of awesome, and other days the bedroom is full of awesome.  It just depends on the mood I'm in.  When I get to decorate my dream house, they will all be my favorite. 
3. Can you wiggle your ears?

See the sarcastic person in me wants to say 'yes', then proceed to reach up with my hands and wiggle my ears.  Although, I'm pretty sure that wasn't the answer that you were looking for. 

But I'm too sarcastic to just let this go at that, so Yes, I can wiggle my ears. 

4. What is your evening ritual?

I usually fix dinner, clean up the kitchen, then settle in for a relaxing,entertaining, boring evening of doing homework.  At least that has been my new ritual.  Usually, about 10:20, after the local weather is over, we head to the kitchen to let the dogs out, wash any cups that we have been drinking out of, and then we do the whole, brush teeth, wash face, let dogs back in thing.  Then it's off to bed we go.  Since I have been doing homework, we usually lay in bed and talk about our day for a while, then we go to sleep.  My life is just so glamorous.

5. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?

That depends.  I can go a few days without getting 7+ hours.  But after a few long, active days, I need 8-10 hours of sleep, or I get physically sick.  I wake up, I barf, I'm fine.  I guess it's my bodies way of getting my attention.  I aim for around 8.  Last night I ended up with 9, but I was asleep before 10pm.  This morning, I feel human, I can function, I'm not clumsy, and goofy.  The less sleep I have the goofier I get.  The less patience I have, and the more things irritate me. 

So I try, mostly for my husband's sake, to get in 7+ hours most nights.  Otherwise, I'm pretty sure that he would divorce me, just for being so grouchy.

Thanks Mama!  I've missed you!
