5 question Friday

1. Do you and your spouse go to bed at the same time?  Very, very rarely.  I am definitely a night person and prefer to stay up until sometime around 11pm or so (sometimes later). My husband prefers to be in bed no later than 10pm.  Occasionally, we go to bed at the same time but then it's a toss up as to who can actually fall asleep as we are both more used to going to sleep on our own.

2. A question for the ladies...What kind of facial hair do you like on your man?  My husband has 5 o'clock shadow at I'm very used to scruff and actually like it on him but my when he is freshly shaven!

3. What's the worst vacation you've ever taken?  2 years ago we went to San Antonio for Tristan and my birthdays...well, unbeknownst to us there was a VERY YUCKY stomach bug going around San Antonio...and YES, we got it.  Tristan was sick for 2 days (actually threw up on a stranger), Adreyn threw up on the floor directly in front of the hotel desk, and the rest of us were pretty sick...

4. What's the first-ever blog you followed?  My sisters...since she lives all the way in Australia it's the best way to keep up with the goings-on of her and her many children :-)

5. Do you enjoy amusement parks? We live about 45 minutes from Six Flags over Texas and when I was a teenager we pretty much spent every single weekend there.  When I was able to drive I actually drove my friends there whenever we went.  I still like amusement parks but we don't get to go very often.  Plus my husband gets sick on them so if we were going to go I would have to find someone to ride with me :-)

5 Question Friday

1. Tube socks, calf socks, crew, ankle, none? (From@ThisDaddys_Blog)   I prefer my flip flops in the summer, and slip on ballet flats in the winter but I wear ankle socks to work with my tennis shoes.
2. Was your childs (children's) name a mutual decision or was it a debate? If you don't have children, do you plan on giving your spouse a say, or do you have a name you MUST have, regardless if your other half likes it or not?! (From @momtodh)
Well, I came up with the kids names and my husband gave his say and then we agreed on the names I picked :-)  My husband did pick the spelling of our youngest's first name and our son's middle name.  
3. What is your favorite type of weather? (From@TheSpunkyDivaMy favorite weather is about 80 degrees, a light wind, and a few clouds in the sky
4. If left to your own devices, what time would you wake up every day? (From Sandy at "Pardon My Dust")  Ummmm, NOON.  Of course, I did "used to" be a night shift person so it isn't really as bad as it could be, right???  Please say you agree!!!!
5. Have you bought your cemetery plots yet? (From Pam at "Troop Petrie")  No we haven't...we need to plan our wills first.  Plus, this is kind of depressing so I just don't wanna....

Today was busy...a staff meeting at 7:30am, and another one at 5pm...lunch with my honey, and then, dinner out at Kobe Steaks (a hibachi Japanese grill) with 8 of my great friends from my old job.  I really miss them but I loved my time out with them tonight!!!!

5 question Friday!

1. Have you ever had roommates?  Yes, a "real" roommate in college...we did NOT get along most of the time.  And I have a roommate husband :-)

2. How many names do you/your children have? (i.e. Prince Charming William Phillip Arthur Louis John Jacob Jingleheimer-Schmidt)  My kids each have a first name, middle name, and last name:  Adreyn Mikailah, Tristan Kreig, and Rehanyn Noelle

3. Did you watch the Royal Wedding?  I watched the sped up replay of the Royal Wedding...does that count???? 

4. What is the messiest room in your house?  My becomes the "catch-all" for everything when we are cleaning the house in a hurry :-)

5. What is your ideal mothers day?  To be able to sleep in and just rest and relax all day.  Probably not going to happen though!

Sunday, May 1


working dayshift is sooooo different from working nights! I don't feel like I have as much "me" time now as I did when i worked nights...probably because I was up so late every night because I couldn't sleep. Anyway, I'm enjoying my new job...just trying to figure everything out.

these past 2 weeks have been interesting. The garage door opener decided to detach itself from the ceiling and fall (with the drywall) on Jason's head so we haven't been able to put cars in the garage for 2 weeks (supposed to get that fixed this week). The kitchen sink drain got plugged and dumped water all over our laminate floor (and under it). Luckily we got it dried out and didn't have to do anything "major" and one of our friends came and helped Jason clear out the plug. The lower element in the oven burned itself in half and had to be replaced (so we couldn't use the oven for a week). 2 of the kids got sick and had to go to see Dr. Dhoot...Rehanyn just had allergies...Tristan was trying to get pneumonia (got antibiotics and is better now). I got sick on Wednesday and now have a nice case of bronchitis (got antibiotics yesterday and starting to feel better). Wednesday something caught (Jason thinks it was the hook on one of my bras) the front rubber seal on the front loader washing machine and unsealed it so currently my washing machine is unusable (not a good thing with 5 people in the house). The washing machine should get fixed tomorrow though. So yesterday and today we are doing laundry at mom and dad's house (since they are in MN right now LOL) Thanks Mom and Dad!!!!! Hopefully this is enough for this year and stuff can start to calm down now.

Back to work tomorrow with antibiotics on board...lots of meetings this week. Looking forward to my girls night out with my MCL friends next week!!!!!
