Five Question Friday

  Here we go.  A little more about me. 

1. Do you think cursive writing is overrated? (Schools in Indiana have now voted to take teaching cursive writing out of their curriculum.)

 I LOVE a good cursive writing.  We use Italic handwriting in our homeschool and I only have one child that can will actually write that way.  But we press on...

2. Do you still use a pocket calendar or notepad or do you keep your info on your smart phone?

  I LOVE PAPER AND PEN!!  I can't even figure out how to put phone numbers on my very basic cell phone that my parents pay for because I really don't want one but they are afraid for me to drive around  (we could put a period on that statement but let's go on) without connections.

3. What 3 things would you save if your house was burning down? (family & pets are already safe)

 OH MY!!  Pictures of course,  my pillow (it is VERY difficult to get your pillow just right, and I need my sleep!),  and I don't really know.  Everything I own came from a used place like Goodwill or a book sale.  So I guess it could be replaced.  I think the box of notes, letters and pictures the kids have given me over the years.  I keep them in the closet and those WOULD be irreplaceable.  Ok,  that was hard to think through. 

4. Country Mouse or City Mouse, err Person?

 Can I be a Country Mouse wannabe???  I love the idea,  I love playing chicken farmer,  and corn farmer,  BUT,  I grew up City Mouse and love my comforts.  Maybe I could half it.   6 months country 6 months city.  This is SO confusing. 

5. If you could pick ANY reality show to go on, which would you pick? 
  Hands down it would be Amazing Race and I would go on it with my sister.  She has the best sense of direction and is pretty practical.  I would be adventuresome (ok,  well,  I DO like to travel and eat new foods!!).  But then again,  she won't get on an air plane and we can't take a train or drive everywhere.  But since we are dreaming..Amazing Race with the greatest sissy sister ever.
and there you go.  A little more about me.  Really, you should know me pretty well by now.  I would love it if you DO read this,  to answer these and send them back.  That way I could get to know YOU a little more.
thanks for reading,


  1. I think Amazing Race would be fun, but I don't think I'd do well with some of those challenges!
