Knowing Me, Knowing You April

It is time again for the monthly interview by The Fairy Blog Mother. I love doing these. She comes up with such great questions! So link over and join in.

1. Who does the grocery shopping in your family?

Um that would be me. Tim hates to go shopping so he always volunteers to stay home with the kids. He does not like the stress of fighting our way down our local Wal-Mart on the weekend. It makes him very cranky so I don't mind him staying home. I usually go on Sunday evenings so that I can get ready and prepped for the week. I take one kid with me. They get to take turns but the other always cries when we leave. I have to admit I like when Reni goes the best right now because she helps me with my list. Plus it helps her with her reading. Plus if you are a family on a budget check out http://www.e-mealz.com/. They plan out your menu and make you a grocery list. Sorry I went way off subject.

2. Are you watching American Idol? If so, who are you picking to win it?

I use to when it first came out but I don't anymore. I never agree with what they have to say or with who usually gets to win. Plus Simon pisses me off soooo bad I just want to punch him in the face a lot of the time! (deep breathe) I guess for me it has just gotten old. I do however love to watch during audition week. Best laughs ever.

3. What is your favorite type of fruit?

I would have to say strawberries. Pineapple makes a close second. I really like kiwi too but I always forget about it when I go to the store. When it see it in fruit cups or something I always love to pick it out. Yummy.

4. Are you a night owl or a morning person?

I have always thought of myself as a morning person but since kids it has really been the latter. I stay up later just for the peace and quit that I don't get any other time of the day. It lets me regroup and get organized for the next day. BUT since I stay up late it makes it hard to get up the next morning. I love Friday nights. I stay up late and watch movies and then I get to sleep late the next morning. I look forward to it every week.

5. Speaking of bed--when you're sleeping do you have your socks on or do you take them off?

It just depends. Most of time I have them on. I am always border line anemic and have been since I was a girl so I am always freezing. I sleep better with socks on. However, when my Aunt Flow comes to visit during that special time of month I can not stand to have socks on. Even clothes touching my skin irritate me. I do wear clothes to bed though. =) Okay way to much info.


  1. LOL @ #1. My husband refuses to go anywhere near Walmart, Target or Costco on the weekends. He can't take the crowds or the stress of shopping! :-)

  2. What some very fun questions! Awesome, great to get to know a little more about you!

    My hubby actually goes to Costco, and I do the other grocery shopping. I spend all our budget at Costco on things we don't need.:-) It's just better if he goes there!

    Have a great Friday!


  3. Fun Questions! I have to do the shopping because my Caveman is actually too compulsive. LOL Who'd think ?!

    He hates crowds. I used to not mind them until I had my kids and now its hard to keep them contained in crowds. I will only go grocery shopping on an early Monday morning when the kids are in school and the store is dead. LOL

    I sleep without socks. LOL
