Five Question Friday

1. Did you have any homecoming traditions?
Um, homecoming as in highschool, football and a dance? No.

I never attended a homecoming or prom. I do not regret this at all.

As far as other things called "homecoming", my grandmother's family reunion is called homecoming. Traditions for this include getting a motel room and swimming as much as possible, then attending the reunion and eating as much as possible.

Our church (113 years old) also has Homecoming every year. This involves a special service and a huge meal. (I'm starting to see a theme here...)

2. Do you ask your spouse before spending money?
Yes and no. We each have our own spending money in our own envelopes. We buy what we like out of that. So I don't ask him before I buy more scrapbook paper or a book.

On the other hand, we don't buy anything for our family our house without discussing it first. We do our budget together at the beginning of the month and we stick pretty closely to that.

I have never hidden the cost of anything and he doesn't micromanage how I do the grocery shopping or whatnot. Works for us.

3. If you could be famous for something what would it be?
Writing, I guess, if I ever finish that long gestating novel. Although Sweet Pea (5) thinks I have pretty rad "cutting things out" skills - it's so nice to have a child to impress. And on a given day, my children think I should be famous as "The Meanest Mom in the WORLD", so there's that too.

4. Have you ever seriously thought you were going crazy?
People who are going crazy think they're perfectly sane. I have a Christian Counseling degree so I'm prone to "arm chair" diagnoses, but no, I have never seriously thought I was losing touch with reality. There is no time for a nervous breakdown around here.

5. How do you eat your steak? Burger? (as in, well done, medium, still moo-ing...)
Steak I like medium rare or medium, depending on the restaurant. Burgers are usually supposed to be well done and I can't say I've ever ordered a burger and asked for it to still be pink.

Please tell me I'm not the only woman who would far rather have a big, juicy steak than a piece of fish or limp chicken breast. If I'm eating out at Outback or some place like that I am far more likely to order steak than something else. Chicken I can make at home (and often do). Steak is not a regular on our menu and I love it. (And yes, I was notorious for ordering Prime Rib when I was a kid.)

P.S. My apologies for the lack of posting this week. Every day except Wednesday I sat down to blog and then just got back up again. I'm not sure what this funk is but I'm hoping it passes soon.

I can say I have never ordered a steak at a restaraunt. And I never will. I just don't like it. I don't like shrimp or limp chicken either, tho. :)

1. Homecoming (as in football) is highly overrated and slightly disgusting in my book.
2. Love steak! Beef! Red meat! Yes to all! :)
3. Glad to see your post. Those blogging funks stink.
