Five Question Friday-or 5QF for those in the know. :)

I'm so ready for the weekend! We have been dealing with sickies all week long. Three kids with strep and me with this horrible allergy/cold/sinus infection/whatever it is. All the kids have been on meds for at least 3 days and I think they're on the mend. I made it through the whole day without having to take a nap (barely) and I can almost breath through my nose a little bit sometimes. Now we're just praying that the two people in our family who haven't been sick this round will not get sick!
We have karate/church/lunch at Grandma's this weekend so we get to out and about. I think that will make us all feel a lot better.

The best thing about it being Friday, of course, is that it's Five Question Friday with Mama M.! I've been waiting all week for this!

1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?
I didn't totally forget her, but I did leave one in the toy section while I went and got some groceries. It would have been okay-she was old enough to be there alone for a few minutes-except that I forgot to go tell her where I was going. In fact, for just a minute, I totally forgot that she was even at the store with me! She didn't panic too much, but I think if I had been gone for a couple more minutes, she would have. I still feel guilty about that.

2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like...first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!)
Is it bad that I don't remember this? The first place I remember going with my first boyfriend where he actually picked me up in his car was to a friend's house to hang out and play pool. I'm sure for our first official date, we went out to eat (probably Italian) and to a movie. Can't remember for sure, though. It was a very significant event in my life, can't you tell?

3. What's your "silly" fear? (We're not talking water and heights.)
I have a fear of breaking my pinkie toe. I bang it on stuff all the time and it freaks me out. I have this image in my head of it just hanging there, broken. Makes me shudder just to think about the pain.
My other "silly" fear is of being run over by a car in a parking lot. If I'm walking through a parking lot and there's a car that's about to back out, I always stop and wait for them to go before I walk past. Even if the driver waves me on. I just can't walk behind a running vehicle. My husband used to think it was funny to start the van just as I walked by on my way to get in. Big meanie!

4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away?
I. HATE. CONFRONTATION. I do everything in my power to avoid it. Unless you mess with my kids.

5. Wood floors or carpet?
I think a mixture. Entryway, kitchen, dining room and bathrooms should definitely be wood (or tile or anything else but carpet). You just can't keep carpet clean in those places. Or at least not with four kids.

I think wood floors are good in other rooms too, if you have some nice big area rugs to keep your feet warm. I can't stand getting out of bed in the morning and having to walk on a cold floor.

Well, I'm off to tackle Mount Washmore. Most of the laundry got washed this week, it just didn't quite make it into closets and drawers. I'll feel so much better if I get it taken care of before the weekend officially begins.

Funny about the pinky! My sister did actually break hers, playing softball, I think. Fun reading! Thanks for following my blog! :)

I love the 5 question Friday! I haven't done it in so long though. I will have to get back at it.

Thanks for your amazing comments on my blog, Under the Golden Apple Tree. You made my week! :) You confirmed why I blog and why I put my heart into it. Thank you.

Thanks for sharing your answers from the 5QF! If your pinky toe is anything like mine, it won't hang very far if it DOES ever get broken! Hope this removes the fear for ya! lol
Have a nice weekend!
