Happy Friday! It's 5 Question Friday once again...thanks goes to Five Crooked Halos for hosting this link-up! It's been quite a busy week for us and ultimately is ending with Angelica being sick with a cough and a fever. I was home with her yesterday and even though she was pretty miserable most of the day, I loved being able to hold and comfort her. Scott is taking a turn today so that I can get caught up on what I missed yesterday. Hopefully my poor baby girl gets to feeling better by tomorrow so we can have a fun-filled weekend!
Speaking of fun-filled, make sure you check out my giveaways! I have a Boogie Wipes giveaway ending at 9 PM EST TONIGHT and a $45 Gift Certificate to CSN Stores giveaway ending on the 31st.
Also, if you're running a toy giveaway, it's not too late to add it to my Got Toys giveaway linky! A new one will go up next Wednesday at 9 PM.
Now, on to the Five Question Friday Fun!
1. Where did you meet your spouse and did you instantly know it was love?
We met on the internet back in the days when AOL was all the rage (ten years ago this March)! I don't know that I instantly knew it was "love", but he and I both felt an instant connection with each other, like "soulmates" or kindred spirits, if you believe in that sort of thing. Ten years later we still feel it, so I guess that connection was a true one!
2. What is your favorite room in your house?
This may be a cop-out, but I'm going to say none of the rooms are my favorite. I love our back yard because it's big and fenced in, has a swing set for the kiddo and lots of shade (important in the summer in Florida)! The house itself is a rental, it's very small, and the interior needs some work...the carpet is ancient, the cabinets and tile are about as old as the house is (30 years) and the bathroom is tiny. But, it's affordable and is definitely helping us with our debt snowball!
3. Can you wiggle your ears?
Nope :) And yes, I just tried.
4. What is your evening ritual?
I leave work and pick Angelica up from daycare. We get home and play for about a half an hour, then I put on a movie for her while I cook dinner. Then Scott gets home (and if we've played too long, HE cooks dinner...LOL) and then we eat. Then we alternate nights...one of us will do her bathtime and story while the other washes dishes (no dishwasher for us). Then I tidy up the house, work on the blog for a bit, shower, and eventually we settle in to watch some TV before going to bed. Lately I've been trying to work exercise into the evening ritual as well...
5. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
This is a dangerous question, my friend. I am one of those people who would sleep forever if I could. I take every opportunity for a nap that presents itself. Yesterday, when Angelica napped, I did too. When I told Scott about this, he laughed and said, "Of course you did!" and called me predictable. Harumph. (LOL) I'd say I need about 10 hours, but I normally get 5-6.
