Five Question Friday

1. Where do you hide junk when people come over?
Well, considering how small our house is, the basement is really the only option. Long ago I would have said that's why God gives us closets but we live in a house that was originally built in 1860. So, no closets is what I'm saying.

But really, if I like you and trust you, you're probably going to see some of our clutter.

And one good thing about having your house for sale: you pare down and your house at least gets all the way clean if you have a showing scheduled. I'm seriously trying to look for the good things about selling a house because, basically, it really stinks.

2. Do political ads help you decide who you are going to vote for?
Um, no, because I have these things called principles.  Incidentally, I hate political ads with a fiery passion, even those of my own "side". I always vote, even in those little off year elections. I have never missed an election or primary since I turned 18. I just don't require a manipulative 30 second TV spot to help me choose. I am always the opposite of an "undecided" voter. Soapbox: if you're "undecided" in the middle of October before a presidential election, just sit yourself down and let the grown-ups handle things. [/soapbox]

3. What's your favorite holiday party to host?
We don't really host any holidays. Maybe if we get a bigger house we'll be able to. So I guess the girls' birthday parties are my favorite things to host. And since we have on daughter with a December birthday, that's almost like a Christmas party.

4. You go to an island with your husband and can only take one personal item. What is it?
I'd love to be super spiritual here and say, "my Bible." But I do have a lot of Scripture memorized so maybe I'd take something practical like soap or toothpaste. Which, now that I think about it, I should probably take Baking Soda or vinegar. You can do anything with Baking Soda or vinegar.

5. If you found out your spouse was a Dexter style serial killer (only kills people to save others) would you rat?
I've never seen the show but here goes:  my spouse wouldn't be. Not ever. I can't even imagine this in the wildest hypothetical way.  And honestly? If I found out my husband was killing people, that'd be the end of my husband. And the end of me.


So, do tell, where do you hide your clutter?

Re: #2 - I agree completely! I personally think that people who claim to be undecided are either Liars or Idiots. Sorry.

I am not good at these kinds of quizzes. Take #4. Did I go to this island voluntarily? Am I stranded there? Do I have to take my husband, or can I trade him in for a Navy Seal or something? Is it deserted or a resort? How long do I have to stay? Probably my answer would be a SatPhone, but I feel like that is the kind of literal answer that has the other participants groaning.

I hide our clutter in my bedroom!! When people come over, it is very unlikely that they will go into our room so our junk is pretty safe in there!

Basement. Our house is small and old too :-)

And I'll second your soapbox. I really dislike how much impact an undecided voter has on such an important decision. Not being able to pick a favorite flavor ice cream is on thing but this is the president people!
