Five Question Friday: August 26, 2011

It’s Friday again!  I wasn’t sure whether to do this or not, but decided that I’d give it a go. It is early morning here so I’m still a bit groggy.  Before I start back with the packing though, I’ll answer a few questions.  Hope your Friday is great, and for those of you along the Eastern Seaboard, hang on!  Be safe!

1. Did you make any fun purchases this week?
NONE!  What are fun purchases?  I do fun things (walks, photography, travel, read, etc.) but not so much fun purchases.  Especially now.  Purchases are just one more thing to pack when we move.

2. If you could go to any musical concert, what would it be?
Not what you’d think, probably.  I’m an Il Divo fan, so I would go to hear them.  There’s this new young group out of Italy that are phenom, and I would go to hear them (sorry, too early in the day and I can’t for the life of me remember the name. A young version of Il Divo.)  I like Jewel, so I might go see her.  Matisyahu for sure, and also 8th Day.

3. What is your least fav/ most fav house chore?
Oy. . . for one, there is no such thing as a “fav house chore” in this household.  My life does not revolve around keeping a spotless house.  We’re doing good with “passable” most of the time.  Life is too interesting to spend the necessary time keeping a really “clean” house. Fortunately Richard is with me on this one.  Keep it clean enough so that the health department doesn’t condemn us, then let it be.  As to the least favorite, it would most probably be the bathroom.  I keep the big one, the one guests in our home would use, clean! (So if you ever come visit us, you will have a clean bathroom. 🙂 ) The one off of our bedroom, not so much.  Then there are the floors.  Ugh.  Since it is just the two of us, I may vacuum once every two weeks or so (more “or so”) but I do mop (swiffer) the kitchen floor four or five times a week.  Oy. . . when I get rich and famous, I will search out a woman who has started her own house cleaning business, and then will hire her to clean my place every week. One business woman helping another business woman.  Works for me.

4. Would you prefer new appliances or clothes?
Appliances.  I am NOT a clothes horse.  I will always choose appliances.

5. Miracle Whip or Mayo?
Mayo.  We don’t use it much, and one jar will last for months, but mayo is the choice in this household.
****************
Feel free to answer these questions and share with the rest of us, if you choose. After we settle in our new place, I may switch this 5QF up a bit and come up with my own questions, or one question that requires some thought, or something. If you have suggestions, please feel free to let me know in your comments.  I look forward to reading your responses.  Have a great weekend, and stay in a safe place if you are in the path of the hurricane.  Next Friday I will be posting from our new abode in OH.  🙂

(Who knew there was so much to blog about re housecleaning and Miracle Whip!)

  1. I am an Il Divo fan as well. I think they are wonderful. If you find out the name of this other group in Italy would you let me know.
    But nothing would part me from my boys! I love everyone of them with all my heart

    1. SIG, You are always welcome to be my “Pool House Swifferer!” But first I have to get a pool house . . . after I get a pool . . . after I get a house! I’ll keep you posted on hpw I’m doing on all fronts!! LOL! 😀

        1. Doris, this was the weekend we moved so this is the first I’ve been online in a few. I’ll go check out your pages now! I’m anxious to see what I’ve been missing. BTW, how do I get back to your private page? I was there a time or two and haven’t been able to find my way back. Email me.

  2. aawww Jewel. Why is it I have forgotten her?
    When life gets busy my house gets a mess to, but as soon as Hubby returns to work the house gets straightened out. Hope you had a good weekend.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Jenna. The weekend was interesting since this was the weekend we moved. I am not responding to everyone from my new home in OH. We’ve been here all of 2 hours!
