“Best money you ever spent?” is Jamie’s query.
The $600.00 in co pays shelled out for our monoamniotic adventure. If it were not for a good insurance plan, we would have been financially ruined. Had we had to pay cash for our hospitalizations it would have been close to a million dollars. I’ll always be thankful that we only had to pay a mere trifle.
I’m also beginning to think that the money we are spending on our Anniversary getaway will be money well spent.
Taya asked, “Is it true that redheads have all the fun?”
Is this a trick question?
“What three qualities do you feel are your best? Which are your worst?What three qualities do you most want to instill in your children? ” was the question asked by Robin.
I’m dependable, I know how to get things done, and I’m a great multi-tasker. I also have a tendency to get annoyed very easily, I’m not as forgiving with others as I am with myself, and I’m not the best communicator. I want my children to be self reliant, I want them to make good choices, and I want them to have integrity.
Kristin inquired, “How much time per day would you say you spend, cleaning or vacuuming? Do you like to clean? Do you yell more when your house is clean and the kids mess it up? Do you have them all trained to pick up after themselves? Can you tell, I’m a little obsessed with how clean your house always is, when you have more/twins kids than me! “
Well, I only vacuum once a week at the most. I have really great carpet with flecks so unless there is a lot of junk on it, I don’t notice and don’t feel compelled to pull out the vacuum. I would guess that I spend about 2 hours a day cleaning. That includes laundry. I never clean my house from top to bottom at once. One day I’ll do bathrooms. One day I’ll change and wash all the bed linens. One day I’ll mop the floors, etc. Mostly, each day I’m maintaining a semblance of order. I try to always go to bed with a picked up house. My kids make messes, but they know that the messes better be contained. Except the twins. They are my wild cards. I can’t go by experience with the other kids because they break all the rules. But that’s a side note. About the “contained messes”. I have certain rooms for certain functions, and they know that toys, for example, don’t belong in the kitchen. Toys in the play room need to stay in the play room. Toys in their bedroom stay in their bedroom. I do not have any toys in common rooms like my living room so that helps. I don’t usually yell when they make messes. Usually.
Cecily wants to know, “Who inspires you? Do you find inspiration in the mundane like I sometimes do? Do you act on it like I sometimes don’t?
I find inspiration in many things……usually the little things….a book I just read. Something I listened to. Blogs I frequent. People I know. My husband and kids. Sadly, more often than not, I do not act on the inspiration. (shaking head in disgust…)
Jojo asked, “What is one of your favorite smells and what memory is linked to it? “
One of my favorite smells is baby lotion. It reminds me of my children when they were infants because that’s the only time I took the time to lotion them up. In a way I’m glad though because it’s easier to pinpoint the time…..:)
I also really love the smell of warm, fresh smelling clothes……the smell and feeling makes me think of security and warmth and reminds me how blessed I am to have a washer and dryer, and an abundance of clothing to meet my needs and satisfy my wants.
A few of the questions I’ve been rolling around in my mind and I still don’t have answers. So, these questions will be the ones in competition for the huge gift card. Your vote is appreciated!
