We Want to Know Wednesday: Week 26


Time for another round of We Want to Know Wednesday! 

Be sure to visit the hosts:  Mamarazzi , Queso and  Crazymama

{1} What is your feel better remedy when you are sick?

It's not really a remedy but that is about the only time that I really love me some chicken soup!  I just think it tastes better when you're sick.

{2} When illness strikes, what is your policy on staying home from work, school or church with yourself and the family?

For the most part in our family it's pretty much unless you are about to fall over we don't stay home!  LOL  School has a rule though that they have to be fever free and not throwing up for at least 24 hours before going back to school when sick.

It's a bit different with the kids sometimes now with them being diabetic because depending on what the problem is it could mess with their blood sugars and if that's the case it's best for them to be home.  

{3} What do you think is worse? Flu or cold?

Flu is definitely worse.  I can usually function with a cold.  A hot shower first thing in the morning, some dayquil, nyquil at night and I can survive.  But stomach issues, achy-ness and throwing up that goes with the flu is the pits!

{4} Flu shots? Do you get them? Have you yet?

Yes, we usually do.  Again with my kid's condition it's recommended that the whole family gets them.  We haven't this year yet but we have plans to.

{5} When you are feeling down, what is your usual, go-to therapy? (retail therapy, exercise, comfort food, etc).

Comfort food.......I'm an eater.  When I'm down, bored, happy, sad, mad.  I eat.

I'm joining in this week with Mamarazzi and the weekly HAPPY  list.  I've participated in the past, but I need to get to it more often.  I need to find more happy in my life!

I'm HAPPY because my daughter got her first job this past weekend! She applied at Schlotzsky's last week.  She got a call while at school on Friday with a message saying to stop in after school or at 11 am on Saturday to schedule an interview.  She went over after school Friday, came home and said she started the next day!  

I'm HAPPY because hubby and I had date night on Saturday.  It's been a while, he's been working lots of hours which I'm grateful for but we don't get to do much.
We went to Outback Steakhouse (I'm HAPPY that I had a coupon for a FREE steak dinner!).  Then we went to see Abduction which gets a thumbs up from me.

I'm HAPPY because we had breakfast as a family on Sunday morning.  That doesn't happen too often anymore either with everyone's busy schedule. 

I'm HAPPY because I got a free scalp treatment yesterday.  A friend is in cosmetology school and she needed people to come in for different things they are learning so I agreed to do that.  Never had one done before.  

I'm HAPPY because I just got home from a nature walk/photo shoot and lunch with hubby.  I've been neglecting my camera the past few weeks so we went for a drive and walk through a state park and I brought my camera along.  
We were able to see a hawk stalk his prey, swoop down and grab it and fly back up to another tree.  Hoping I got some decent shots of him.  
Then we went to Five Guys for lunch.  Yum!

We Want to Know Wednesday: Week 25

See how inconsistent I am?  Nothing for a month, then 2 days in a row!  Anyway, on with it.....It's We Want to Know Wednesday time.


Be sure to visit the hosts for We Want to Know Wednesday:  Mamarazzi and Queso.  

{1} If you had an extra hour to do ANYTHING for yourself each day what would you do?

Sleep.  I can never get enough sleep!

But what I really should do is take a walk.  I do it randomly and I usually feel better and ready to start the day if I do it in the morning but I tend to get lazy and put it off.  

{2} Are you a morning person or a night owl?

I don't know.  I think I'm turning into an old person.  I used to be a night owl and stay up until all hours.  Now I'm lucky if I can make it until my hubby gets home just after 10pm.  On the mornings I can sleep in sometimes I'm lucky to make it past 7, I used to be able to easily sleep until 10 or 11 am.  

Maybe it's just that the kids are in school now and I have to get up at the freaking crack before dawn!  

{3} How much sleep do you get on an average night?

Not nearly as much as I'd like.  I'm usually in bed by 10:30 and up around 5:30  which is 7 hours.  But that doesn't mean I sleep the whole time.  I get up at least once to pee.  Then it's a guessing game to if I'll fall right back to sleep or if my mind will start it's usual wandering!

{4} When do you find the time to blog/surf the ol' interweb?

Lately I haven't.  I don't really have a specific time set aside for it which is kind of a bad thing.  I usually end up sitting here way too long.  My time management skills suck!

{5} What is the ONE thing you're never too busy for?



I don't update my status or tweet a whole lot myself but I'm always interested in what everyone else it up to.

Yeah, you know I already spend way too much time online.
Just wait until I get my new phone and I can check in on the go!

And of course my family!

Lazy Blogger

Sigh..........That would be me.


Seems the first thing I start ignoring when I have other stuff going on is my blog.  So I skip a few days, then a week or two.

Then before you know it a month has gone by and I feel completely out of the loop.  

I've let my photo blog suffer too.  I missed one week on my Project 52 and that set the ball rolling.  Now I've missed 4 weeks :(

Another project started and not completed.  Argh!

Anyway, wanna see a pic of my daughter all dressed up for homecoming?
