1.) Ask A Dad! Write a letter asking your husband for advice regarding any issue you might have and record his answer.
This prompt would just take too much time and effort so I'm not doing it. Although I'm sure the answers would be great if I did it.
2.) Describe a situation that forced you to confront a neighbor.
I don't have any neighbors where I live now and I've never had to confront one when I did. And even if I did have a need to confront a neighbor I wouldn't have because I hate confrontations. Who came up with these lame prompts?
3.)Tell us about Grandpa.
Well I have one really old Grandpa and one dead Grandpa.
4.) Which appliance in your home would you most miss living without if you had to live without.
Does the computer count as an appliance? What about the TV? No? Okay, the refrigerator. Can you imagine having to kill what you were going to eat each day before eating it. Or even if we were living in this time and could go to the grocery store we would only be able to buy each days food and put it on a cooler. We are lucky!
5.) What are three things we would love to know about you!
What are three things we would love to know about you.
I can't promise you will love to know these things about me. But I'm going to tell you some deep dark secrets.
I hate brushing my teeth. I always have. It gets infinitely worse when I'm pregnant. I have a bad, bad gag reflex when I'm pregnant so when I brush my teeth I often find myself gagging. That makes me not want to brush even more. If I were to be honest I might tell you that I sometimes go several days without brushing. But I'm not going to be that honest today. Instead I'm going to lie and tell you that I brush my teeth every single day, twice a day. Even when I'm pregnant.
I hate taking baths. No real reason. Well yes there is. The biggest reason is that my husband leaves me presents in the bath tub. Hairy presents. I hate hair. So I have to clean out the bathtub of all the hair. But that's not all. The bath tub is always dirty so I have to clean out the dirt too. So by the time I get the bath tub all cleaned out, I'm too tired to take a bath. You know, I just want to get IN the bathtub and take a bath. Is that asking too much? So there's that and the fact that getting in the bathtub is also a lot of work. Get undressed. Take a bath. Wash your hair. Gotta condition it. Then scrub your body. Some baby is at the door begging to take a bath with you or asking you where their clothes are. Then dry off. Then dry off the floor because invariably someone has moved the mat from the bathroom floor and it is nowhere to be found. Then get dressed.
I haven't done laundry all week. EVERY SINGLE DAY this week I have had a migraine. I don't have one right now. So today I will do laundry. But if you visit me you might find out that I have laundry, clean but not folded, in several places throughout my house. There are two baskets of partially folded clothes in the school room. There is a chair with unfolded laundry in the living room and there are various and sundry baskets with clean partly folded laundry in several other rooms. At any given time everyone has clean clothes in one of those places. Here is the funniest part. JEFF WILL NOT EVER look in any of those places for clean clothes, either for himself or his children. Funny huh? Yes, it really cracks me up too. Especially when I have a migraine and can barely move without pain radiating down my neck...and I have to bend over the clothes to find Asa a shirt. That's my favorite time. I'm going to hire someone. That's the ticket. EXACTLY. For some reason my children do not ever want to help me...so I'll hire someone. Then all the laundry will not only be washed but it will be folded, hung up and put away. Who needs to make a couple dollars?
