Five Question Friday


It’s Five Question Friday over at “My Little Life” and because I love talking about myself, I thought that I would join in…

Here are the questions:

1. What is your current favorite book, and why?
2. Do you go to the dentist regularly?
3. What is your worst memory from High School?
4. What do you hope to be remembered for in your life?
5. Are you superstitious or do you have any superstitions?

Here are my answers:

1. What is your current favorite book, and why?
Favorite current book? I can’t even remember the last book that I read! I know that sounds pretty redic but I really can’t. I started reading Eat, Pray, Love on maternity leave but once I got to the pray part it got boring and I gave up. Before I had the boys I was completely up to date on reading all of the Sookie Stackhouse books (which HBO’s True Blood is based on) but there are two that have been published in the last two years that I still haven’t read. One stares at me from my night stand and haunts me… They are really good books (kinda cheesy though) but this momma just doesn’t have time to read.

2. Do you go to the dentist regularly?
Again, I’m going to blame this one on my children! Afterall, that’s why I had them – to blame things on. So…back in January 2008 I went to the dentist a few weeks before moving to Hays. I haven’t been back since. Gasp! I know it’s disgusting. Add it to my list of New Years Resolutions (I’ll even put it on the “realistic resolutions” side).
You see…when I am pregnant one of my big time pregnancy symptoms has always been that my gums bleed badly when I brush my teeth. Not run of the mill bloody, more like “having to rebrush my teeth to get the blood off that was caused by the initial teeth brushing”. TMI? Perhaps. Anywho – the thought of going to the dentist in that condition didn’t sound fun – plus I would need to find a new dentist since we lived in a new town. Well, that never happened. We had a kid, moved back here and my dentist had retired. I don’t like change so procrastinated making a new appointment just long enough to get pregnant again. Whoops. There’s another 9 months of no denistry. So – really, now I have no excuse. I’m gonna get back on that wagon so I don’t have to constantly have my parents remind me how much they paid for this beautiful smile so I better not waste it!!

3. What is your worst memory from High School?
This one is tough. I really can’t think of anything. There was a gnarly break up in there but even that wasn’t really as traumatizing as I made it out to be at the time. Middle School was chalk full of crappy memories, but by high school life was pretty much okay…

4. What do you hope to be remembered for in your life?
This is easy – I want to be remembered as a great mom. I’m not going for best mom in the world because I’ll be the first to tell you that isn’t me and truthfully, there is no such thing. Most importantly, the only two people that I even care about remembering that I was a great mom are the two little guys that will call me by that name.

5. Are you superstitious or do you have any superstitions?
Not really. I believe in fate and that kind of trumps the need for superstition in my book…

Now, go link up with Mama M and answer these for your self. Go! Now! Do it!

  3. My parents remind me about the cost they paid for my smile all the time and it still doesn't motivate me to go to the dentist, lol. I am terrified they will tell me my mouth is full of cavaties and that all my teeth have to go. Does that ever even happen??
