Five Question Friday – March 4

by Carrie with Children with 13 comments
I’ve been so confused on the days of the week lately for some reason.  Yesterday, I thought it was Friday all day.  Confusing!  You’d think that 5QF would be my reminder of the days of the week!  Yay for the weekend!  Only two more weeks until we’ll be at Disney World! YAY!

Just a reminder, I’m linking up with others for Five Question Friday and I don’t make up the questions. Click on the button below to see a linky list of others also participating. Be sure and share your answers below too!

Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school? Um…NO!  Oh my heavens..I can’t even imagine it.  How is it even possible that someone could forget a child somewhere?!  I forget things from time to time, but a child?!  Nope..not happening. girls are loud, no way they’d let me forget them.

Where did you go on your very first date? (Like…first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!) I honestly have no idea.  So…instead, I’ll break the rules and tell you about my first date with my now-husband!  I got off work at 5:00pm and he called me at 5:05pm to see if I wanted to go to a minor league baseball game…in two hours.  It was “Baseball Bingo” night in between innings and everyone got bingo cards..I still have our ticket stubs and our Bingo cards from our first date.  (Awwwww…)   🙂
What’s your “silly” fear? Having to touch lizards, cockroaches, frogs any type of insect or reptile.  Really.  To me, it’s a real husband always tells me it’s a silly fear.

Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away? Drama and confrontation are not for me.

Wood floors or carpet? That is the ongoing battle in our house these days.  We have carpet in the bedrooms, which I think is a must.  We have ugly carpet in the den/living room area that the previous owners had and we really want to put in hardwood floors…but WOW they are pricey!  Hopefully in the next year, we’ll be able to get hard wood floors throughout the house except for the bedrooms! (Sponsor anyone?!)

    Stopping by from the 5QF! I don’t think your fears are silly-I live in PA, and all the natives up here think MY fear is silly!
    Have a nice weekend!

    • Carrie with Children

      Thanks Josanne! I’m going to run over to your site now and check out your “silly” fear! Enjoy your weekend!

  • Mary McLean

    Fear of critters (or crawlers) is not silly. You inherited this fear from your Mother!! I’m with you!

    • Carrie with Children

      Glad to know I’m not the only one who thinks it’s a silly fear. And we all know how Amy feels about the frogs! 🙂

    The first real 1st date I ever had jus so happens to have been with my spouse. We were 15 and went to a carnival. I was such a dork and so shy. I actually told her that I loved her before we ever kissed. Today we share a passion for Disney and love spending time together.

    Hardwood is the best. In our previous home our whole 1st floor (except powder room/ laundry) was natural blonde maple. I loved it and still miss it today.
    So I say hardwood all the way!

      That is a great story, Rich! Thanks for sharing! I love that you told her you loved her before you even kissed. So sweet!

    Came by via 5QF (which I have yet to do).

    ahhh I have the same fear when it comes to insects!

    Hardwoods. ill trade ya. We have them all over the house except the bedrooms which are carpeted and tile in the bathroom and laundry room. I would give anything to rip it up and lay carpet in the upstairs hallway, family room and office!

    Hi Carrie! Stopping from 5QF…your fears aren’t silly! I’m not afraid of the reptile critters, but the fear of having to touch a spider creeps me waaaay out! Oh, and that’s a really sweet first date!:)

  • Amber

    Forgot to add my website!:) I have a strange and silly fear;-)

  • Only Prettier

    i hate cockroaches too… they are huge. They call them Palametto Bugs….like that makes it better

    • Carrie with Children

      Yeah some people around here call them Palmetto bugs too.. doesn’t make it any nicer sounding or looking to me! lol

  • Melissa

    Aw, that’s such a sweet first date!

    Ours was dinner at Applebee’s and the movie “Fraility”. LOL, I’ll never forget that!

    We ripped up our carpet and redid our wood floors underneath it. Sometimes I like but sometimes I really miss the coziness of carpet.

    • Carrie with Children

      Sounds like a fun first date to me! 🙂

      I’m jealous of your hardwood floors!
