Five Question Friday: A Day Late!

These questions come from Five Question Friday over at Five Crooked Halos.

Yeah, I know that I'm a day late in posting my responses to the questions, but I'm here now. :)

1. Do you apologize to your kids?

Yes, and sometimes I feel like that is all that I do. Things have been brought into their lives that children should never have to face and the mistakes were not seen until after the damage was done and it was too late. Hindsight is 20/20, they say and that is true. There are things that, if I had them to do over again, I would not do. Another cliche that fits here is "No good deed goes unpunished." Unfortunately, that punishment doesn't stop with the ones in charge of making the decisions. The children suffer from bad decisions made by the parents, too. So, yes, I apologize a lot to my children.

2. What color are your nails right now?

My nails are regular nail-colored, unpainted. They are so brittle and peely these days that I don't even bother trying anymore. It just doesn't seem to be worth the effort to make them pretty when they are going to break about the time the nail job is complete.

3. When you were growing up, how difficult was it for you to stay home from school sick? (As in, did you have to vomit or just say "I don't feel good".)

I don't remember wanting to stay home from school even if I was sick. Bullies aside, I enjoyed going to school. But, if I was puking, then I know I stayed home, or got sent home if I was already at school when I got sick.

4. When is the last time you bought a new comforter for your bed?

The only comforter that I remember ever buying for our bed was the one we bought when we were first setting up our house as newlyweds back in 1984. We've been given others along the way and haven't had need to buy another one.

5. Favorite website(s)?

I have a zillion "favorites", but these three stand out to me at the moment:

Miel et Lait
The Gypsy Mama
The RedheadRiter

Be sure to check out Five Question Friday and join the fun!


  1. Aw, thanks for the love!

    About your nails - if you ever think of it, use a nail oil. It has helped my nails grown smooth & strong! I use a cheap, drugstore brand and love the results.

  2. @Miel et Lait

    You're welcome, Miel. :)

    Thank you, too, for the nail oil suggestion. I will have to see what I can find around here.

    Have a wonderful day!
