As if I didn’t have enough on my platter, I just joined a new blog group (thanks to The Redneck Princess): Five Question Friday. Every Friday I will receive five questions to answer and blog about. Actually it can be simple, or in-depth, or whatever I want it to be. At any rate, here goes:
1. What is your current favorite tv show?
Richard and I no longer own a tv so this one is a challenge for sure. There are no current favorites, but when we did watch tv, the Amazing Race was one show we enjoyed together. We would fantasize about how we would do in each situation. It was a fun show for the two of us to share. Having said that however, we do not miss having a tv AT ALL!
2. What’s the worst haircut you ever got?
The worst haircut is the one I gave myself about a year ago. I used one of those automatic clipper thingys and forgot to put the “guard” on that insures an even length. I am so blind without my glasses that I could not see what I was doing and practically shaved my head. :-\ Even so, I felt sooooo free not to have to fool with hair. But I never did it again. (And NO, you are not seeing a picture!)
3. What was something that you did as a child that you thought you were so cool for doing?
We camped in a full size tepee that my parents made. THAT was cool. Every summer we camped in it, traveling all over the country and having adventures most people just dream of.
4. Do you have any GREAT frugal family fun tips?
Camping is way more fun than staying in motels, and way more cheap, too. National parks and zoos are cheaper than other parks and zoos. Also, give each kid two zip lock bags one inside the other, salt and ice (in the outer bag), and milk, sugar, and vanilla (in the inner bag). Seal both bags then let the kids go to town shaking those babies up and before you know it, every one will have their own home-made ice cream!
5. Would you drive across country if you had the money to fly?
I’ve flown a lot, but I would definitely drive. LOVE road trips, LOVE seeing the sights and stopping in quaint places when I want. LOVE camping and being out-of-doors. AND, I am seldom in such a hurry that I need to fly to get somewhere fast.
So, there you have it! My first Five Question Friday. See you back here next Friday for more questions. 🙂 If you are interested in joining Five Question Friday, click on the box below to travel through the blogosphere to the place where it all begins!
