Five Question Friday!

Already Friday??  The last day of school for the big kiddos is next Thursday which means there is something happening everyday.  Next week, R has a field trip to the cemetery with her 3rd grade class to place American flags on the veteran's graves with the American Legion post.  A great way for them to understand what Memorial Day means.  Next Tuesday is the last day of school for G man and his "water day" which is always a favorite.  That same day we have T's 6th grade awards. Wednesday is Field Day for R at 8:30 am and T's Fun Day at the local park with sno cones.  Thursday is the last day and also the day for R's awards and her end of the year party....and I have to make a couple dozen cookies.  Whew!  Are you exhausted reading that?  All in the life of a mom.

R woke up at 2:30 am with a fever and upset stomach.  At 8:30 she told me she didn't feel good...bad headache and just a yucky feeling.  I gave her some ibuprofen and also mentioned that she WOULD be going to school (we've had many days where she has prepped the night before to try to stay home from school).  So, needless to say...I felt like the crappiest mom in the world when she woke me up and I could immediately tell she was sick.  Flushed cheeks, clammy hands, wide eyes and willingness to take any medicine to make her feel better.  She was up and down all night, her head was pounding and her stomach sick.  I'm letting her sleep as long as possible this morning...and hoping that it doesn't turn into a traveling a stomach bug. 

Now on to more fun things...that don't involve throw up....5 Question Friday!  Link up over at My Little Life to join the fun.  Just copy, paste, answer and post!

1. Do you and your spouse go to bed at the same time?

sometimes.  He works nights sometimes and that's when I find I go to sleep way too late.  I guess I am relishing in all the alone-ness of it all.  Usually we both head to bed around 11.  Does it count when I am still watching TV and he's asleep beside me on the couch?  Because that happens a LOT.

2. A question for the ladies...What kind of facial hair do you like on your man?

I love a goatee!  When B got the job he has a refinery....he had to shave his hunka-hunka-burnin'-love goatee and I literally cried.  Yes, cried.  I loved that goatee, it was part of the wild and crazy kid I fell in love with.  I still miss that thing.  During our 2 weeks of summer vacation he lets it all grow and I love it.  When he had to shave though he did keep his mustache.  So...I guess I can live with that.  Seeing as though he'll have this job forever, I'll have to.

3. What's the worst vacation you've ever taken?

I had a bad part of a vacation.....
Colorado, I was 15 I think....and had some kind of stomach bug.  (I thought I wasn't going to include throw up in the 5QF) dad had just married my step mom that year and we were in this amazing condo.  I was sick for a full 24 hours, laying on the bathroom floor dyyyying.  My dad took care of me and I remember catching Pee-Wee Herman's Playhouse on at like 4:30 am.  After that the trip was amazing!  Snow, skiing, my BFF, cute boys, heated pool and hot tub.  Ahhh, the good ol days.

4. What's the first-ever blog you followed?

hmmmm........I checked my blog buttons and it would have to be Blog Giveaways.  I won quite a few things.  I still try to every once in a while when I'm on a kick. 

5. Do you enjoy amusement parks?

I LOVE amusement parks!!!  I'm not talking Disney....I haven't been saving enough money lucky enough to go there.  I'm an hour south of Houston, Texas....we had Astroworld growing up.  Loved Astroworld.  It is no longer there.  Such a bummer too because it was the best.  We went all the time, I even had a Birthday party there once.  I love roller coasters!  As a family the only amusement park we go to is Sea World.  Maybe, just maybe, one day we'll make it to Disney.  (Even though I think I would like to try out Universal Studios for the rides)
Oh, are missed.

Have fun linking up!  And if you're new to Staying Home and Staying Sane and you feel like following me on Twitter or "liking" me on FB, please let me know.  I will always follow back!! 


  1. You know, I still have no idea when my son's last day is. We had all these snow days, so I know it's later than the calender says. I'm following you back from the hop!

  2. I love what R's class is doing for Memorial Day--sorry she is so sick. My husband and I have been staying up too late recently, but he also generally falls asleep in the living room before me. :)

  3. Yes...about the last days of school, they are such a whirlwind of activity here too!
    I am always finding more ways to go "green". Looking forward to reading more of your posts!

  4. I have checked you out and I can totally relate to you week! Our kids' last week looks the same but everything keeps getting postponed because of rain! They're running out of days to postpone to! I'm ready to call it quits and they can do all of those fun things just here at home.

    I am interested in the review thing. Someone approached me about doing one and using his product for contests on my blog. What is that all about? Do I just try it out and then have my readers try it out, or what?
