I am so glad it’s Friday!  This week has dragged on long enough.  Plus, I’m taking a half-day today to go have some fun with the Hubs and kids… of course, after the fuel pump went out on my mini van on Wednesday, it won’t be AS much fun as we would have had.  LOL.  But, it’s Friday and its time for Five Question Friday!

1. What holiday do you wish did not exist?

Wow.  I don’t actually HATE any holidays.  If I had to choose though, I’d probably pick Groundhog Day.  Even when I was little I questioned the stupidity of a holiday where groundhogs stuck their heads out of holes to determine if spring was near… I would always ask how it seemed spring came the same time each year no matter if he saw his shadow or not.  I was precocious.  What can I say?

2. What is your favorite romance/love movie?

I have a tie on this one.  Lost in Translation with Bill Murray and Same Time, Next Year with Alan Alda.  I love both these movies.  I have Lost in Translation on DVD, but have yet to be able to find Same Time, Next Year.  Both excellent chick flicks.  Though, I would kill to find out what Bill Murray’s character says to Scarlett Johannson’s character at the end of Lost in Translation when he whispers in her ear.

3. Do you make a big production out of celebrating Valentine’s Day?

Not really.  We buy the kids a little something and the Hubs and I do cards, but that is usually it.

4. What is something weird you did as a child? (or even now!)

Where do I begin?  Every night, before I go to bed, I check all the corners of the room (at the ceiling) for spiders.  I always have, and probably always will.  I eat peaches with shredded cheese on them.  I always read the last page of a book first, in case I die before finishing it (of course, the Kindle makes this a little more difficult.)  When we go on a trip, when we pull in the driveway, I always say “Home again, home again, lickity split.”  I’m weird like that.

5. What makes you love your husband, really LOVE him, you know since Valentines is coming up?

How he cowboy’d-up in the hospital with the babies when they were born.  He was changing them and taking care of them and being super-daddy.  Even the nurses were talking about it at the nurses’ station.  He jumped right in and started taking care of them from the get-go.



  1. I couldn’t help but laugh about the Groundhog Day bit. We always would try to guess if he would or wouldn’t see his shadow, but other than that we don’t care too much for the groundhog predictions.
    Haha I do a cursory glance around the house for spiders when I get home or am walking through. Ugh those little buggers just creep me out.
    Stopping by from 5-Question Friday!

  2. I don’t think I ever saw Lost in Translation…will have to check it out. Sounds like a great hubby you have there.

  3. Aaaahhh! Your are the first person I have ever known to know of the movie Same Time Next Year! I watched it once when I was high school age, I think. I’ve always been on the lookout for it, but have never seen it. Every year for 10 years now we have gone on summer vacation with friends of ours. Each and every year I think of that movie.
