1. Do you and your spouse go to bed at the same time?
Nope! The Hubster sleeps with a CPAP now, but he didn't for a long time, and well, snoring noises don't exactly lull me to sleep. These days, either he goes to bed first because he has to be up by 5:30 a.m. to get ready for work...or, he falls asleep watching t.v., and I fall asleep reading in the other room...and then eventually we both end up going to bed.
2. A question for the ladies...What kind of facial hair do you like on your man?
B has had a very small beard and a moustache for a long time now, and that is fine with me. I think if he shaved it off now he'd look weird. And since I'm a long-time married woman I don't look at facial hair on other guys!
3. What's the worst vacation you've ever taken?
Hmmm. I have not taken many vacations. There have a been a few vacations which, looking back, were not very enjoyable. B and I went to Washington D.C. some years ago, b.k. (before kids), and while there are a few parts of that trip I remember in a positive light, for the most part I just remember endless walking, being very hot, and thus very thirsty for most of that trip. He really, really, really wants to take the kids to Washington D.C., he thinks they would find it "very interesting". I think it would be he**.....what eleven-year-old would ever find endless walking to multiple historical buildings "very interesting"???? Every time B mentions taking a trip to D.C. I just keep quiet and look preoccupied with something out the window.
4. What's the first-ever blog you followed?
Well, the first blog I ever read consistently was "Confessions of a CF Husband", authored by Nathan Lawrenson. I learned about his blog from a church friend, and I started reading that blog just as N. Lawrenson's wife Tricia, who has cystic fibrosis, was going into the hospital and ended up having their daughter Gwyneth very, very prematurely. I think that was in late 2007, early 2008. I think in 2008 Tricia was re-listed for lung transplant, and did eventually get a new set of lungs....amazing story, just really inspiring. Their daughter is a doll, and the blog overall is excellent. As far as the first blog where I actually clicked on that "follow" button...hmm. That I don't remember. I've followed a lot of blogs in the past few months! Sometimes I become a regular reader of a blog and then forget to actually "follow" it.
5. Do you enjoy amusement parks?
Um, no. Not really. I don't enjoy walking around in the sun on really hot days, and usually those are the kinds of days where one would want to go to an amusement park. I also am not big on crowds, and I don't do roller coasters (if I want to plummet to earth and defy gravity, I'd rather jump out of an airplane - not be strapped into a piece of metal or wood where the person next to me might throw up on me.). I went to a park with some friends during high school, and they went on the biggest coaster at that park at the time. I stayed on the ground and counted how many seconds it took the cars to get to the top of the first hill...far too much suspense for me. I know, I'm boring!
Have a great weekend,
