I hate Jello!

1. Do you have a land line?

No we do not have a land line.  And we only have cheap, pay-as-you-go cell phones.  We have three of for Ben, one for me and one for Heidi since she is now old enough to stay home alone.  She is only allowed to use it to call us, if she is home alone...she doesn't use it to talk to her friends or anything.

This works for us, because we don't talk on the phone much and don't text much.   Since we just have tracfones, I generally prefer to use email as our mode of communication   With this method, we probably spend about $30-40/month total, which is pretty good for phone usage. 

2. What is your least favorite food?

Jello.  I hate jello.  I abhor jello.  I detest it with the hatred of a thousand suns (or something like that). 

Patriotic but disgusting. 

I'm so glad I didn't live in the 50's and 60's when there was a plethora of disgusting jello recipes out there.  Can there be anything more vile than Tuna and Jello Pie?

3. What's on your summer reading list?

My mom gave me this book to read. It looks fairly interesting and I love it, I will.

I'm also reading this book.  Everyone loves some John Grisham, right?

And, I was contacted by the author of this book, so I'm going to be reading that and writing about it. It looks really interesting.

4. Is there something that people consistently ask for your advice on? What is it?

Yes, I am a La Leche League Leader, so people consistently ask me about breastfeeding.   A lot of people ask me about NFP as well, even though I am not an NFP instructor or anything.  Not sure why everyone asks me about that, but they do. Plus, people seem to ask me about home remedies and natural supplements a lot...well I did write this website after all. I'm definitely not a doctor and not really qualified to talk about anything other than my own personal experience..but I am a big fan of natural medicine. I also get a lot of questions about gluten-free cooking and baking. 

5. What's the most physically demanding thing you've ever done?

That would probably be the 1000 moves we've done since we got married, where we pretty much move everything ourselves. Which means lots of loading and unloading and carrying of furniture and boxes and bricks.  Yes, bricks.  When we first got married, our bookshelf consisted of a bunch of bricks on wooden boards. 
Like this one here.   Classy, no?  And we moved those bricks three times.  Yikes

And, we're about to do it again...less than two weeks!  Although we no longer have any bricks..but yes, we do it ourselves. Why pay for a gym membership and movers when you can just do the work yourself and get a great workout that way?

6. How do you feel about massages?

Not a big fan of them.  I've never had a professional one, and I don't really want to.  I'm too much of a private person for something like that, I think. 

Happy Pentecost Sunday!

In honor of Pentecost...Elsa and I wore red today.

I just love her little pigtails...they are so adorable.
