5 Question Friday

Things have been so crazy around here it's not even funny.  Between work and school it's making me nuts.  Our part-timer is an idiot.  We ask the temp agency for someone with office experience and we get someone who has worked in call centers.  She screws up phone calls and taking a message.  I spend most of my time at school fielding phone calls from her and other people in the office, yet they don't want me to get rid of her.  Um, ok.  When I'm at work I'm cleaning up after her.  It's frustrating.  Especially to someone who if it isn't done their way, then it's the wrong way.  No matter what it is.  Cleaning, working. 

I have some great ideas - and I even had two posts written that were saved on my old blackberry that died.  Now, 24 hours after getting new blackberry, it's dead too.  Awesome.  Or you know, not.

So I'm going to attempt to re-create those posts, and add a few more, and hopefully figure out how to squeeze school, work, and blogging back in.  Because let's face it, this is so much more fun than writing papers, and I miss it.

Have a beautiful weekend!

1. Have you worn the same outfit more than one day in a row?

Yes, but let me explain.  Jeans can be and are worn more than once.  Because let's face it, they never get dirty.  I usually wear jeans twice and then into the laundry they go.  Unless I spill something on them, then I toss them and start over with another pair.

I have been known to take a shower of an evening and need to run an errand, so instead of going in my pj's I put on clothes.  Clothes that are only on my body for an hour or two.  So I go home and hang them back in the closet and rewear them, usually the next day so that they get washed sooner rather than later.

And pj's.  I wear 1-2 pair a week, depending on how funky they get.  If they still smell like clean laundry we put them on again.  If they smell less like clean laundry we get a new pair.

I won't wear socks more than once though.  If I take my shoes off, and leave my socks on, and have to put shoes back on, even if it's only been an hour, I have to have new socks.  I know, I'm weird.

2. If you had to choose any LARGE city to live in, which would it be?

I don't know that I would want a large city, like New York large.  I like Lubbock, we have lots to do, we have a lot of chain restaurants (like Carino's).  Decent shopping, it's big enough for most conveniences, yet small enough to not take you 2 hours to drive 10 miles in rush hour traffic.

I guess if I had to pick out of all of the places that I've been too, I would pick Dallas (my bestest friend lives there), Austin (it's absolutely gorgeous), and Denver (again, it's pretty).  I grew up in a small town, and it wasn't so bad either, just irritating to have to drive 45 minutes to go to somewhere besides Wal-Mart.

3. Fly or drive with the kids on vacation?

I prefer not to do either with kids, because once I got off the plane, or stopped for gas, the cops, FBI and various other government agencies would be screaming things like "Put your hands in the air" "Get on the ground" "You are under arrest".

You know, because in order to fly or drive with them I would have to kidnap them, and most people frown on that.

4. What is your idea of "spring cleaning"?

Oh how I love spring cleaning.  And fall cleaning.  And summer cleaning. 

When I spring clean I move everything and clean every tiny little crevice.  I clean out drawers and closets and boxes and garages and...  I probably go a little overboard.  But it's so nice to know that there are no dust bunnies lurking anywhere, at least until the next sand storm. 

I'm a cleaning freak though.  I randomly clean out drawers and closets.  Cleaning is stress relief to me.  Some people eat chocolate, some go to the gym, some shop, I clean.  My husband can always tell when something is bothering me when I start cleaning and usually more than the usual mopping and dusting.  He also usually bails and hides so I don't force him to help.

5. What is the best book you have ever read?
My absolute favorite book, is a children's book, that I have a brand new copy of.  The Velveteen Rabbit.

Obviously, the story could never come true, but it is the perfect example of child-like faith at it's best.  It shows how honest and innocent kids are, and how they believe in all the possibilities that, we as adults, don't.  And it's about love, and how deeply and wholly a child can love something and believe with all their heart, that it's love is real, and returned.

The best book I ever read, would probably be Where the Red Fern Grows.  Because let's face it, that book is full of possibilities and love too.

Mostly as an adult I read mystery and suspense type books.  Occasionally there is a little chick romance in there.  They are good too, but if I were to only pick one book to keep in my home, The Velveteen Rabbit would be it.

*Now if your feeling really brave, scroll down and read last weeks, because I wrote it, just got busy and forgot to post it.
