I can’t believe that somehow I forgot to participate in Answer Me This last week! The ever-awesome Kendra managed to have a baby AT HOME like two days ago and still post this linkup. Since it’s my last chance for this summer (when AMT goes back on hiatus until whenever Kendra decides to bring it back) I hope no one minds if I go ahead and answer both sets of questions!
Last week’s questions:
1. What’s currently on your To Do list?
I have stopped making super long to-do lists because it depresses me to go back and see the same items week after week. I’ve started picking one extra task to accomplish each day if possible. Tomorrow’s task is a multi-part one: get ready to go out of town.
2. Better type of superhero: magic/radioactive powers? Or trauma/gadgets/hard work?
I don’t want trauma. And I have to work hard enough already. So I’ll go for magic/radioactivity.
3. Finding out if baby is a boy or a girl before birth: Good idea? Bad idea?
I think it’s a bad idea and I wish we couldn’t do it. Back in the day, people would ask if you wanted a boy or a girl, and the answer would always be I don’t care as long as it’s healthy. Now it’s much more common to express a preference. I’m not sure what the connection is but I feel like there is one. Also, I feel like knowing the sex sets up expectations about the baby before it even arrives. Having said all of that, we found out three out of five times. John wanted to find out about #1; I didn’t; they couldn’t tell so she was a happy surprise. We found about #2. With #3, having one of each already we figured it didn’t much matter so we didn’t find out. With #4 and #5 we found out. It’s hard not to find out when you can.
4. Have you ever appeared on a stadium jumbotron?
No. Sadly, I rarely have the opportunity to go to a UT Vols game, which is the only place that I am going to be in close proximity to a Jumbotron.
5. Are you more book smart or more street smart?
This week’s questions:
1. What’s your favorite grocery store splurge?
Some people might think crab claws are a splurge, but they are one of the few things William will eat so they are actually a necessity. I’m pretty frugal about the groceries. I can’t really think of anything I splurge on.
2. How’s your penmanship?
I have very nice handwriting thanks to eight years of daily cursive instruction at St. Joseph School and lots of hard work and practice.
3. Do you have a “Summer Bucket List?”
Not this year. That’s another thing that leads to disappointment and guilt.
4. What’s the best thing on the radio right now?
I hardly ever listen to the radio. I prefer silence when I have the choice. John plays a station with lots of 80s songs that I like a lot.
5. Ice cream or frozen yogurt?
I don’t eat either regularly. And I’m not sure I can even tell the difference.
The end and thank you again to Kendra for bringing back the linkup for the summer. Please take a look at the other entries right here.
