Five Question Friday – April 8

by Carrie with Children with 4 comments
Busy, busy day around here!  We are having a big garage sale tomorrow – so you can only imagine the fun times at our house!  Who knew that one family could produce so much junk and clutter!
What are you up to this weekend?

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!


If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? Probably my ability to take on too many projects at once….and I’m not talking blog related stuff, just life in general.  I need to learn how to say “no” more often.

Write about a time when you got lost. My college roommate and I decided to take a “shortcut” once instead of jumping on the interstate connecting Asheville, NC and Knoxville, TN.  Instead of a two hour trip, ours turned into a four hour trip, we ended up right back where we started near Asheville.. and never even made it to Tennessee!

Camping or five-star hotel? While I do love a good campfire and roasting marshmallows, I have a fear of bugs…so I’m going to go with five star hotel.

Have you donated blood? I haven’t donated blood in years..  I need to get better at doing it more regularly!  My Dad is a regular donor and I understand the importance of it.  (Too late for a New Year’s resolution?!)


Do you have a budget or do you ‘fly by’ most months? I have a dollar amount that I have to stay below each month.  As long as I keep tabs on that number, I’m a happy girl.

    1. I have pretty low self confidence, so I’d love to change that about myself! I am always finding too many things wrong with myself (weight, hair, etc).
    2. My hubby and I got lost in DC one time, it was not fun. It was very late at night and a bit scary. But, it was a pretty detour since we drove by some of the monuments!
    3. Five-star hotel without a doubt! I’m not a camping kind of girl.
    4. I used to donate blood regularly since mine is used for babies (I meet a certain criteria) but have not given since becoming pregnant with my son. It was also how I conquered my fear of needles!
    5. A little bit of both. We have a budget and track our spending (so we know what we allow each month) but we understand that some months may require a little more spending in certain areas.

    There is a lot I would like to change and old habits are hard to break.
    The last time I got lost was just this past September going to Silver Springs in Ocala. I was not in a good part of town so the kids got the gps on their phones and got us there.
    My last time camping was in the mountains in the Smoky Mountains back in 1992 and I was on my period(TMI) well the park ranger said to beware of bears. I am so blind without my glasses or contacts in the middle of the night I mistook my husband for a bear. Good thing I didn’t have the gun. Since then I always stay in a hotel now.
    I try to donate but always get turned down due to anemia.
    I would love to be better on a budget it looks good on paper but something always comes up.
