5 question Friday

1. Do you prefer cotton, silk, or flannel sheets?  Before I was married, I only slept on satin husband Hates satin sheets. So, now we sleep on cotton sheets...with the highest thread count I am willing to pay for. 

2. What time zone are you in?  Central time zone with DST almost over...

3. What is your favorite part of the holiday season?  Christmas music...after thanksgiving please, thank you very much!

4. What is your favorite "wintry" drink? (It doesn't have to be an "alcoholic" drink!)  Peppermint hot chocolate...yummy!

5. In your opinion, what is the worst job in the world?  nursing assistant on a med/surg floor or a nursing home...all you do is clean up **** and give baths and clean up more ****, etc, etc, etc....  I know many nurses assistants and they love their jobs, but in my opinion that would be the worst job EVER!!!  And that is of course because I have the best job ever (just like Mama M).  I mean, who doesn't like to experience (not personally) the miracle of birth and caring for that new little life (I do the baby side instead of the momma side) every day you are at work :-)

5 question Friday

1. Where do you escape to when you've had enough?   Hmmm, I've been trying to escape lately but everyone keeps on finding me!  Well, I usually "escape" by reading a book...but I've also been known to go grocery shopping just to get out of my crazy house!

2. What shows are you watching this fall?  Well, TV I guess is another place where I escape.  I watch all the CSI's, Criminal Minds, The Sing-Off, DWTS, Castle, Body of Proof, Person of Interest, Revenge, Last Man Standing, New Girl, and there's more.  I DVR them and then watch them whenever I get a chance.

3. What was the longest roadtrip you've ever taken and where did you go?  It was probably the last trip Jason and I took to Illinois from Texas when Adreyn was 2 or so.  We went up to visit his family...nothing exciting :-)

4. Do you plan on taking your kids to Disney World?   Jason and I were going to go to DW for our honeymoon but changed our minds.  Neither one of us has ever been.  I really want to take the kids, and the kids are begging to go...but I'd rather pay off debt right now then spend thousands of dollars for a week vacation.  Hopefully, we can go in a couple years.

5. What is something people would surprised to know about you?   Well, most people are surprised to find out that I don't have pierced ears.  My dad (a minister) always said that if God had wanted you to have holes in your ears you would have been born with them.  So, we weren't allowed to have them growing up.  Now, I want them but I just haven't taken the time to go get them...I guess I should make the time, huh?!?!?!

5 question Friday

1. What is your go to comfort food or sweet?  Lately...Ice Cream.  For "real" food, it's always been homemade beef and noodles...

2. What is the most romantic place you've ever been to?  Hmmmm, I don't know...I guess my most romantic times have just been times spent with my husband...we didn't have to be any where special.

3. What is your favorite thing about fall/Halloween?  The only thing I like about Halloween is seeing my kids excited about dressing up (which reminds me...I need to pick up their costumes).  But I really love Fall...I love the weather changing, the pumpkin scents, and cinnamon apple scents...but I just wish I was enjoying Fall in MN again...the color changes on the foliage was so gorgeous...we don't really get to see that in TX since by the time Fall comes around Summer has already turned everything brown!

4. How would you spend 24 hours alone?  I'd play on my iPad and laptop, I'd read, I'd sleep, I'd get a massage, and I'd just relax and enjoy!!!!

5. Does you husband bring you flowers? Are you the bring-me-flowers type of girl? My husband brings me flowers occasionally.  I'm not really a "bring-me-flowers" type of girl (plus he still thinks for some reason that yellow roses are my fav's are dark red/purple roses and tulips...maybe after another 15 years he'll figure it out.)  BUT, I'd love to get flowers at work and I've been dropping hints since I have an office now but he hasn't gotten the hint yet :-)

And these are the CAH-RAZY weeks of my life 8-)

After my "ups and down" week I had an okay week...I really don't remember it much.  Then I had another CAH-RAZY week!  I worked 6 12 hour shifts in a row, so 72 hours (2 weeks worth) in those 6 days.  I had 1 day off (and I spent it sleeping and grocery shopping...hadn't been in almost 2 weeks) then worked the next 4 days and logged 38 more hours this week.  I would like to say that my paycheck will be *AWESOME* but I think 'uncle sam' will end up taking more than his fair share. Work is still crazy busy BUT I have hired a few people.  The first 3 people I hired are ones I worked with at my last job.  I love getting to see them again.  I've hired one other person and have a couple more interviews to go. Hopefully, once I get enough staff I'll be able to spend my time getting caught up on the management side of my has been shoved to the side lately.

On a good note...the kids are doing well in school.  However, I think I need to have another talk with Tristan's teacher because I think she is being a bit too easy on him...because now he is not doing his homework (which he loved last year) and his behavior all around is just not good...last year's teacher made him toe the proverbial line and he did so well because of her high expectations.

I have this weekend off and I'm looking forward to resting up and hopefully getting stuff done around the house and spending time with my family...I've missed them.

Next week should be interesting...Jason's grandmother passed away on Wednesday night and he will be taking some time next week to drive his parents to Pensacola for the funeral.  So, my work schedule will be crazy next week again but it should actually end up with me having shorter days at work...YAY!!!!
