Hopefully the New Year is finding you all well and on track with where you want to be with any goals you have set. One of my many goals/resolutions is to blog on other days besides Wednesday this year :) Starting school back mid week and having an insane to do list is not conducive to having that happen but I have big hopes for next week! Enjoy the great questions supplied by Joyce and answers supplied by me below and then go over to her blog This Side of The Pond and join in!
I do like shrimp and enjoy shrimp scampi probably the most.
3. Is your house de-Christmased? If so, when did you tackle that job? If not, when will the decorations come down?
We took down our tree last Saturday because I thought my husband might have to leave to travel and I knew I couldn't get it down myself. The rest is still up. My to do list this week is insane so I probably won't get to the remaining items until the beginning of next week. I figure as long as I get it done by the end of the month I am good :)
Not a bit much to the dismay of my husband.
5. ice skating~sledding~ skiing~snowboarding...of the four listed which wintertime activity do you most enjoy?
Well I do like to ski but on snow blades not long skis which I have not done in about 10 yrs. I also really like to take the boys tubing now that they are a bit older and enjoy it. Sadly we have only been able to go once and that was last year. I think I will enjoy it even more when they can bundle themselves to go out.
6. Did you have a childhood hideout? Describe it.
In one of our houses that I lived in growing up we had two rooms that were side by side and connected by a closet. I would play in the closet and pretend it was a secret passage way. I was not suppose to go through the closet and enter the other room though since it was my sisters room. She was in high school and I was around 5 I think and for some odd reason she was against me in there on my own :)
7. What's a place or space that motivates you?
Well on the rare occasion I make it to the gym I am always motivated to work out more because as hard as it is when I do it I feel better. Also when I go to church I feel more at peace and then I am motivated to be more patient with my children so we can have more peace in the house.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I watched a clip today that my friend posted on Facebook about a child who had food allergies and she died from eating a peanut the first day back from holiday break. It is just heartbreaking in so many ways. As a parent of a child with food allergies it can be so scary to send them to school or really anywhere sometimes but you can't keep them in a bubble. I hope that this will be a wake up to schools across the nation about having better plans in place to prevent this happening again. I hope that it will make people want to educate themselves a little bit about food allergies and how to deal with someone who has a reaction and mostly I hope that people will realize that when we have a policy of our kids not eating anything we don't check first it is not a personal attack on you or your cooking. It can be a matter of life and death for our children.
