5-Question Friday!

Okay, away we go....haven't done 5QF in a while!

1. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Well, if you go by one of my posts of just a few days ago, apparently I'm wanting to change everything!!  But, if I had to pick one thing it would probably be that I wish I were more "disciplined" getting done all the stuff I really need to get done!  Either I'm far too easily distracted, or I have waaaaay too many irons in the fire, or my brain is just interested in far too many things to be able to accomplish as much as I want to. 

Really, there just needs to be more hours in the day.  Who can I talk to about that?

2. Write about a time when you got lost.
Honestly, I don't think I've ever gotten lost.  Really!  Over the past few years I've spent scads of time driving around my state, and I've had to get really really good at knowing where I am, where N-S-E-W is, where the major highways are in my state.  When doing that driving I was on my own - no-one with me - so I knew I had to be really sure of where I was.

My phone does have a navigator app on it.  B has the same on his phone, he loves it.  I'd rather look at a map than listen to the annoying little woman!

3. Camping or 5 star hotel?
5-Star hotel, if only because I really need sleep in order to function well and be nice to people!  I'm probably good for some hikes, and toasting marshmallows over the campfire, and maybe even some canoe-ing...but after that, I need me some regular bedding and a hot shower in a bug-free environment.

4. Have you donated blood?
Yes, several times.  I need to do this more often!

5. Do you have a budget or do you 'fly by' most months?
Erm....ahem.  Well, I guess we sort of have a budget!  I'm in charge of paying the bills, and I've gotten it down to a system where some bills are covered in the beginning of the month, and the rest in the middle of the month.  It is very tight sometimes!  I don't count out every penny, I really just have a pretty clear idea of where the money is going.  We could be much better at tracking expenses, though - any impulse-purchase, or unforeseen expense over a certain amount, can really hurt the money situation.  Sometimes it is an eternity between paychecks!

Have a good Friday,

I am very budgeted! I couldn't stand to "fly by the seat of my pants" as some do! :-)

I always love 5 Question Friday. it's cool to learn new things from my blogging friends!

Can you come live with me and be my navigator? I am forever lost! I can get lost on the street I live on! I am not exaggerating at all! I am horrible! There is only one rule you can not yell recalculating at me like my GPS does!
