5 Question Friday

By the time Friday rolls around my brain is much - heck what am I saying my brain has been mush for months now. I have tons to do today to get ready for the weekend since we'll be home very little and will happily be a resident of the ballpark so I must take advantage of a post almost done for me. Friday means it's time for the 5 most random questions on the planet with Mama M. at My Little Life. Go ahead over and join in on the fun :)

1. Did you have a pen pal when you were little (or now)? Where were/are they from?

I had a pen pal when I was in elementary school I believe - she was from Canada and we wrote back and forth for a year or more. I think we must have done some project in class that hooked us up with people from another place and we just continued writing for a while - sad how bad my memory is in those early years.

2. If you could do a different job for one day, what would it be?

Oh my goodness - I actually love my job. I love being here for my kids and being the one they get to see all the time. Don't get me wrong I get frustrated and need breaks more than I admit it though I seldom get one however I couldn't imagine having to get someone else to watch them on a daily basis - that would be very difficult for me. I do miss working sometimes though outside of the home. I miss the hustle and bustle and feeling like I'm actually getting something done other than talking to little tikes and cleaning dirty diapers.

3. Do you remember your biggest fear from when you were little?

I have always been terrified of being alone. I have seen a lot of counselors in my life (good or bad) and they say it stems from the fact that my parents divorced when I was so young - I suppose it makes sense in one way or another. However I am horribly terrified of being alone - sends me into a panic attack just thinking about it.

4. What do you think is a waste of time? Why?

Dusting / Vaccuming. I can't stand dusting - I put it off as much as I possibly can for as long as I can. However once it's done I love the smell of it!

5. What is the oldest item you have in your closet?

I am not sure which is older but I have my christening gown from when I was a baby and I also have my dad's motorcycle jacket from when he was a police officer many many years ago! I think that's one of my most favorite items ever - weighs about 30 pounds but it's found it's home :)

That is such a sweet comment about your dad's jacket. For me it would be a couple of my mom's things I keep around for flash back days for my girls.

LOL! I hate to dust too! I had a friend come over today and I told her not to look at the two inches of dust on all my tables and shelves!

i LOVE reading your answers. i had a penpal from new york for quite a few years. i recently found her on facebook, it was fun to 'see' her and reconnect. :)

Oh I totally hate dusting and vacuuming too! BUT I do love a nice clean house, bummer. :)

I hate being alone too. I am not one of those women that likes her quiet alone time I would always rather be around people!

I hate dusting too. I conned my mom into helping me dust this week. It went by much faster having someone to talk too. I put it off as long as I can too.
