Five Question Friday – June 10

by Carrie with Children with 8 comments


I think I’ve spent all week playing catchup from vacation….and now it’s time for the weekend!  I probably going to jinx myself by saying this outloud (or should I say typing it out loud?!), but we have no plans this weekend!

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 above to see a linky list of others also participating. Be sure and share your answers below too!


How close to your childhood dreams is your life now? As a kid, I dreamed of moving to Nashville and marrying a country music singer.  So…nope.  My childhood dreams and my life now couldn’t be any further apart.  And I’m so totally okay with it.  If I was a country singer’s wife, I’d have to dress up and be fancy all the time.  I like my pajamas better.


What is one “must have” item for this summer? Is a little quiet time an acceptable answer?

Do you have your kids stay up on school stuff during summer vacation? (Or, if you don’t have kiddos, did your parents make you keep up on school stuff during summer?) Nope!  Summertime was summertime.  Besides the usual summer reading lists, I don’t recall my parents making us keep up with schoolwork during the summer.  Ever.


Do you can or freeze fresh produce? Um, no.  Can’t say I’ve ever done that…didn’t even really think it was possible.  We buy and eat fresh produce from time to time, but usually cook it right away.

Do you get ready for the day first thing in the morning? Definately not.  I’m not a morning girl. At all.  I’ll stay in my jammies as long as I can get away with it during the day.  Morningtime is the worst for me…I’m not happy waking up early.

    I am not a morning person either. I wake up at the last possible minute and love being in my pajamas! It’s probably because I stay up so late at night that I hate waking up in the morning.

      It sounds like we were meant to be friends! I do the same exact thing…and I’m a night owl! 🙂

  • Pam King

    I did get married and had kids that’s about the only childhood dream that did become true 😀

    I used to love to get tan every summer. I know I know pasty is the new color but I still love to get tan just now I “hate” laying out in the sun to get it. No my parents never made us keep up schoolwork in the summer and I did not do it with my kids either.

    I tried that canning thing once-Too much trouble in my opinion-my back hurt first from picking all the green beans and then snapping and shelling and then putting in the cans after cooking and sterlizing the jars -no thank you I’ll buy fresh when I can if its not too expensive.

    Thankfully I work from home so I get to work and stay in my jammies all day

      I’m glad to hear you say that about the canning fruit, Pam! I’ve never even thought about doing that before. Just seems strange to me. Then again, what do I know 🙂

      Thanks for reading! 🙂

    quiet time is a perfectly acceptable answer! I fled to my gardens today once Dh woke up from night shift sleep. but they followed me darnit. Good thing I had a big bucket of dirt that needed mixing! apparently this is even better than the sandbox!

    • Carrie with Children

      Ha! Who knew that a bucket of dirt could be so fun! 🙂 I think every Mom should get at least 30mins of quiet time a day. Is that so wrong?!

  • The Mommy Therapy

    I think I am the only person who wants to get dressed first thing. I am just much happier that way. I linked up to the five question friday so all my answers are there.

    I actually giggled about the canning/freezing question.

    Hope your weekend stays free and you find your peace and quiet…I’m desperately searching for that as well.

    • Carrie with Children

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who giggled at the canning/freezing question. I mean, really…who does that?!?!

      Fingers crossed we both find some quiet time this weekend 🙂
