This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. Do you swim in the winter? I don’t swim in the summer…so no, not really, although we definitely have days where it’s possible here
2. Do you love or hate winter? I love Winter here in East Texas, but not Winter everywhere….I have only seen about 2 inches of snow and then it melted shortly thereafter. That’s really all the snow I am interested in seeing because I am clumsy enough on dry ground. I love how it doesn’t get too cold here usually, but for the most part, it also doesn’t get too hot…it’s like the perfect weather for me! 🙂
3. Do you put makeup/actual clothes on when you know you’re going to be home all day with just family? With just my husband, no….if I was with a bunch of other family, then I would get dressed instead of staying in comfy night clothes…as for make-up, only for special occasions or if I just feel like it. I rarely wear make-up and when I do, it’s usually just lip gloss and maybe mascara. I’m not very high maintenance…
4. How old were you when you had your first alcoholic beverage?
 21…but not on my 21st birthday like a lot of people like to do….I was probably a few months or so away from being 22….and it was 2 wine coolers, I believe…
5. How many ill calls in a 12 month period do you think are acceptable? One per month? I don’t know…..I would say if you’re calling in at least one day every week, that would be too much…but it just depends…if you’re actually REALLY sick…

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
