I'm linking up today to answer some questions.
1. What's the scariest thing that's ever been in your yard?
Ticks. I hate ticks. I abhor ticks. Actually, I don't mind them necessarily....bugs don't bother me. I just hate that they carry disease. Terrible, horrible diseases that are hard to treat and can cause chronic issues. I'd rather deal with snakes or bears or scorpions or bees or wasps or anything other than ticks.
2. Beards. Thumbs up or thumbs down.
Thumbs up, way, way up. I love beards. I pretty much think that almost all men look better with a beard. My husband usually has a beard...he basically goes through a cycle of letting his beard grow and then when it gets too bushy, instead of trimming it, he just shaves it off completely and them immediately lets it grow back. So most of the time he has it and I love it, even though it is starting to turn white...I still love it.
3. If stuff breaks, can you fix it?
Probably not. I can do really minor, minor stuff (like sew on a button) but that's about the extent of it.
4. What was your first car?
The first car I drove and that I learned to drive on was a tiny Chevette, my parents had in high school. Then I had a series of old, junky cars throughout college...I can't even remember them all. My first car that I actually owned, myself...title in my name... was a 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier that I got when I graduated from college. We still have that car...Ben drives it to work everyday. We're pretty happy that at 15 years old, it still runs fairly well. Of course the air conditioner doesn't work and the trunk is broken..but at least the important stuff, like the brakes, still work.
5. How often do you eat out?
Hmm...not very often. I would say it averages out to maaaybe once a month...maybe...probably a bit less actually. Sometimes I go to mom's night out with our homeschool group....and that is always at a restaurant. But, I don't go every month. We almost never go on dates...can't really afford it, nor can we afford a babysitter. And, we very, very, very rarely eat out as a family...just a few times a year maybe. Sometimes I look at all the restaurants and fast food chains and coffee shops and wonder how they stay in business. Then I remember that some people actually do go to them.
6. Why is your hair like that?
Umm...because thanks to my genetic ancestry I have brown, sometimes wavy,sometimes curly, sometimes straight hair and I pretty much just leave it the way it grows out of my head. I don't dye it...never have. I tend to think most people look best with their natural color and anyway..chemicals. Over the years, it's been varying lengths...anywhere from chin-length to longer..although I like it longer. I've always wanted a cute bob with pin straight hair but my hair is too wavy/curly to pull it off and I'm too lazy to blow-dry, straighten, flat-iron, etc.
Every time I cut it off to chin-length, I pretty much hate it and just let it grow out again. I've also played with bangs a bit, but generally don't like them on me. Other people can pull them off, but I really can't.
And that is the perfect segue into What I Wore Sunday, where you can see both my wet hair and today's outfit.
