Five Question Friday

1. What is a must in a hotel room?
A clean bathroom, a thermostat or adjustable heat & air, and a phone.

Philip and I spent one night in a hotel in Scotland with no phone in the room and it sorta kinda felt like we were in prison.

2. Which Olympic event would you be best at?
Ha, ha, ha. That's a good one. If we must choose, I'll go with Table Tennis. My husband tells me I've got good hand-eye coordination. (I wish I were better at swimming. I do not wish I were better at running, or diving, or slinging myself around narrow bars or balance beams.)

3. What's your stance on the Chick-fil-A subject?
Freedom of speech is a beautiful thing. (Also: God designed and established marriage. You can try to fight the parameters God created, but you will never actually redefine it. It is what He created it to be.)

4. One thing you said you'd never do as a parent, but totally have.
Wow, this is a tough one. I guess I'll say this: as a parent, I'm a lot more lenient than I thought I would be even though Philip and I are probably stricter with our kids than many of our friends and acquaintances.

5. What's the weirdest thing you've ever found at a yard sale?
You can find almost anything at a yard sale (except for that one thing you were looking for, am I right?). We've bought clothes, homeschooling stuff, appliances and toys.

Nothing horrendously weird jumps out at me but I have seen more tacky decor items than you could imagine. I can't believe people actually had that stuff hanging on their walls. (Maybe they couldn't believe it either and that's how it ended up in a yard sale!)

Your turn: what do you have to have in a hotel room? And what Olympic event would you be best at? Now's the time to share those hidden talents!

I almost listed phone as a requirement, because I also once stayed in a place without one and thought I might go out of my mind. But, that was in pre-cell days; now I think it's not that much of a deal-breaker. Though in foreign locations my phone might not work (or I might not want to take out a loan to afford it working) so I might need to add that to my necessity list should I be fortunate enough to travel internationally.

I promise to be candid and you can be too. Blogging is best when it's a conversation. Thanks for taking the time to read this post and respond. I enjoy hearing what you have to say.
