{July 22, 2011}   Five Question Friday for July 22nd,2011

Well…This was the first ever 5QF that I had to really research and figure out what one of the questions meant….after having no luck googling “The Big V”, me and my husband were thinking what it could mean and he figured out what it was….V is for V-a-s-e-c-t-o-m-y…..I think I spelled that right..I’m not sure who calls it the Big V cause that was very confusing for me….but thanks for putting my brain to work hard!

Only one more 5QF this month after this one…summer seems to just be speeding by!

This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. If your husband had the BIG V and you got pregnant what would your first reaction be? For the dudes, what would your first reaction be if your wife told you she was pregnant after the Big V? I don’t want my husband to get a vasectomy anytime in the foreseeable future, at least at this time in our lives, because we have no kids yet and I want a big family. IF somewhere down the line my husband had one and I became pregnant afterwards…I would be surprised but from hearing stories and watching the show “I didn’t know I was pregnant”, I would know that it IS possible. It’s rare for it to happen but it CAN so I wouldn’t be thinking it was magic or anything….and I don’t think my husband would think I had cheated because he also knows it IS possible. Obviously, if we already had our hands full with kids, it would be a stressful situation, but from my standpoint at least at THIS moment, I would take it as something that was meant to be. I believe everything happens for a reason and I would accept the new baby into our lives and know that our families would be just as accepting, so it wouldn’t be that big of a deal to me.

2. Best memory about this summer so far. So far, it has been our anniversary…we didn’t do anything HUGE but we really spent quality time together talking and it was fun 🙂

3. How often do you change your sheets? Your kids sheets? Obviously N/A for the kid’s sheets…..I don’t have an exact time schedule for the sheets….I guess I really should, though…Does anyone know how often you should? I mean, I know if they are dirty, you should…..and clean freaks probably change them out weekly or less, but I probably do every month or couple months…is that bad? 😦 I feel like people are going to be thinking I’m gross now…..but hey, I’m being honest….

4. Having just gone through TSA, would you rather have a full-body scan or a pat-down? idk….These new scans kind of bother me because it’s like they now have x-ray vision where they can see you naked and it feels sort of violating to me…..I realize the necessity but I also feel like there are some weird perverts out there that may get off on that sort of thing…..and that bothers me…..especially for kids they are scanning…..But pat downs aren’t so fun either…..Can I just have the old fashioned x-ray scan?

5. Since it is fair time…what’s your favorite fair (county or state) memory? My favorite fair memory is performing at the Dallas State Fair back in 2005 and getting to also walk around and go shopping…it was so much fun!

3. I also don’t change the sheets often. I’m glad I’m not the only one 🙂

YAY! I’m glad to know others are like me out there! 😀

The Hook says:

Summer IS speeding by, isn’t it?
That really sucks!

Yep…it’s flying by faster than a bird almost….

I’m glad you had a really good anniversary with your husband! And yeah, I wish summer would slow down too, it’s gone by so fast! It always does.

Yes, the best times seem to go by the quickest, don’t they?
Thanks for the anniversary wishes!

Hygiene freak Americans tell you to change the sheets every week! (every day in hotels, how silly!) Unless you’re really sweaty in there, I don’t see the point. I usually change the sheets every 2 to 3 weeks, alternating between the kids’ sheets and ours. We all sleep in PJs, so those are the ones we change more often.

The last hotel I stayed in actually credited your account if you passed up on the daily housekeeping… other words, if you said NO to having your sheets changed and everything… was a way they were trying to save energy. You could only do this on the nights that you were going to be staying the whole next day of course and you had to just put the little thing on the doorknob at night before 3 a.m., so we put it on there. I think it was a great way to get guests to pass up on that even if they are or are not hygiene freaks…for us, it was the credit that made us want to be sure to put it on the knob.
Of course, I AGREE with changing the sheets before the next guests….otherwise that’s just gross because you don’t know what might have been ON the sheets, right?!
They also had two nozzles on the shower with an option to shut off one of them and only have one going to conserve energy. They were very energy efficient…..the only thing I didn’t like was I think they shut the air off for like an hour or two in the middle of the night to save on energy…..and it got really hot during that time every night. 😦

Haha, yes, I’d definitely want the hotel to change sheets in between guests! But if I stay in a hotel for 3 nights, I don’t need clean sheets every day. By the way, even though I don’t wash our bedsheets every week, I do wash the pillow cases every week because I think that’s the part that gets the dirtier faster.

My brother had a vasectomy after 3 kids . . . he has 4 kids. Vasectomies take a short while to “kick in” and they decided to “roll they dice.” Glad they did. All 4 kids are terrific. 😀

We wash our pillow cases every week and our sheets every other week.
We love “Clean Sheet Night.” 😀

I’m sure they don’t regret it now either. 🙂
Sounds like a good routine…every other week….seems to be a norm for most people. Guess I should get in the habit of the every 2 weeks sheet cleaning regime.
