Five Question Friday!


Here we go, my friends! I was super excited that last week's Five Question Friday was "off the hizzay" and that I learned a hip new word from Keely! Thanks! (P.S. Isn't that a cute button?!! Again, muchos gracias to Michelle!)

So, the rules? Copy and paste the five questions below to your blog post, answer them, grab the MckLinky Blog Hop code and link up! I'd also love it if you'd link back to me...not a requirement, just a request!

And, we're off!!

1. What is your favorite Holiday and why? (Thanks, Keely! Yup, same Keely as above!!)

2. Who has been the most influential person in your life?

3. If you could give up one household chore forever, what would it be?

4. What is the BEST practical joke you have ever been a part of, on the giving OR receiving end? (Thanks to Meghan, for that one!!)

5. Where (or how) did you meet your spouse?

-------------------------------------------------------

1. What is your favorite Holiday and why? (Thanks, Keely!)

Christmas. Hands down, Christmas. I love "the reason for the season", the hustle and bustle, the gift giving (and, well...also the receiving, ahem). The cooking, the cleaning, the shopping, the decorations. And the smells!!! Oh, the smells...I love it! I live for Christmas. As soon as Christmas is over, I begin the countdown for the next Christmas...did you know there are 87,547 seconds left until Christmas? Joking!! Only joking...I'm not quite that crazy...not quite!

2. Who has been the most influential person in your life?
My Grandma (my mom's mom). We spent a lot of time with my grandparents when I was young, and she's like a second mom to me. I've learned my love of cooking from her, she gives some pretty great advice, she a loving, gentle spirit. I am so blessed to have the relationship I do with my grandma...she is one amazing woman, and I love her to bits!

3. If you could give up one household chore forever, what would it be?

Dishes, ugh...or, wait...maybe floor duty? Perhaps dusting...no, no...window washing. Oh, man...I can't decide!! This is a hard one! Um, let's go with floors...yes, definitely floors. I hate yucky, sticky, crumby floors, but I HATE cleaning them even more! Why is it that you can go forever without a spill...but as soon as your floor are swept and mopped and sparkling clean...a pitcher of Kool-Aid spills?!! Grrrrr...yes, for shiz!! The floor!

4. What is the BEST practical joke you have ever been a part of, on the giving OR receiving end? (Thanks to Meghan, for that one!!)

Geez, um...I'll go with the most recent one! So, at work, we have patient/visitor parking, in the brightly lit upper levels of the parking ramp...and employee parking, in the depths of the dungeon ramp where the only light is gleam of the eyes of the boogey men (okay, slightly dramatic there...but it is scary)...so, working the evening shift, I often park (I'm sorry) in visitor parking. It's a save yourself world, my friends! I was discharging a patient shortly after my shift started, when my phone rang (we carry hospital issued phones at work)...male voice on the other end, "Is this Mama M.? ('cept, you know, he called me by my real name!!) You have a blue Town and Country? (I was answering affirmative to the questions) You have 5 minutes to move your vehicle, which is parked in visitor parking, or it will be towed." Me, stammering, stuttering, trying not to look like a fool in front of my patient, "I'm discharging a patient, can I get a little extra time?" Mr. Security voice on other line, "No, the tow truck is here right now." So, I excused myself, sprinted to the desk, heart racing, palms sweating, cheeks blazing...and find our paramedic student and a handful on my nursing buds laughing hysterically. Turns out, they put the paramedic student up to it. Took a bit to sink in, then I saw the humor! Whew!!

5. Where (or how) did you meet your spouse?

I maintain Mr. Wonderful and I need to make up a more romantic story to tell our kids. But, alas, here is the truth...it was my 21st birthday, at which I was sober as a church mouse (or, um...not)! Out dancing, I caught the eye of a handsome man, checkin' me out. Next thing I knew, we were dancing...I, resting my heavy, drunken head on his big, masculine shoulder. After party at my parent's house, a sweet little hug...and the rest is history, my friends!!

Gosh, isn't this fun?!!! Now, link up, my dears!

  1. Do you mean to tell me that you have 5 kids....and a total of 7 people....in your house, and FLOORS are the worst chore???

    Do you outsource your laundry?

    You should invest in a Hoover Floor Mate. A wet vacuum that scrubs your floors and sucks all the nasty water up with it.

    I will never mop again!

  5. I am SO with you on the household chore(s) you would give up forever. I think my second most detested chore is floors... we have hardwood floors and there always seems to be crumbs or sticky spots in random places!! Aurg. Heck, I spent 3 hours this morning on my PREGNANT hands and knees mopping/scrubbing the floors. Definately a chore I coul ddo with out!! :P

  6. Dear lovely goober -
    Actually how you met Mr Wonderful would have been especially romantic if he held your hair while you were getting over your sober moment. ;) You know you got a keeper if they do that for you!
