Just a Question or Two?

Sorry this Friday Five is late, exhaustion and techinical difficulties are to blame. Anyhow -although I did learn a few things this week, I would like to pose some questions this time. Here we go:

1. Does anyone really have it all together? I mean really have it together from A to Z and everything in between! If so, may I have their number because I would really like to pick there brain for a few minutes. :) If not, good! Than I am not alone in my pursuit of all out organization and contentment.

2. Can I really clone myself, where do I put in my order? How long does it take because I need approxiamately five of me maybe more right now. Maybe I should try limb transplantation. Have you ever read the book, If Mom Had Three Arms.

3. Does Electrolysis really work? I am thinking that I could save a ton of money just from my husbands face to my legs! Can you believe how expensive razors are? Ridiculous. Those who know me know that I hate, yes hate, hair anyway but take into account how expensive it is to shave and it just drives me crazy.

On a political note:

4. Is it true that a certain Presidential nominee voted against making English the official language of the United States of America? If so, there is seriously no question as to who should be elected (well there never was for me), I mean really lets be serious!

5. Alright, I just might be totally into the election right now. It literally just got a little interesting! Have we finally found a woman worthy of being in the White House? I guess we will see ( I am sure we will know more in the coming months) but in the mean time I can't help but be just a little bit excited! History in the making as we speak.

teaching, messes, history, the future, perfection oh my!

I have learned this week:

1. Homeschooling - Oy Vey!

2. What my house looks like after a day of not picking up anything. I always wondered and it isn't pretty.

3. Never type "Saggy old lady" into Google images. Scary! Don't do it!!

4. When an elephant walks through the jungle you can't hear them because they have so much padding on their feet. Did not know that, very interesting! I just assumed you would know when the largest land animal weighing over 5 tons was coming up behind you. Disclaimer: I did not learn this from personal experience just something I picked up from a history lesson.

5. I am not perfect nor will I ever be or care to be perfect. But was literally just informed by my lovely husband that everybody should strive for perfection so I guess I take #5 back and say I learned that I am not perfect but should work harder at it. Yep, I'll just put that on my to do list, right behind flying to the moon :) (another thing he thinks I should strive for.)

Following a thought

So I decided to make my usual Friday Five post on my family blog a seperate blog all on it's own. It just came to me one night and I decided to run with it. I also think I might mix it up a little. Sometimes it will be the usual what I have learned sometimes it will be what I want to learn and maybe I will throw in some weekly pet peeves, who knows. I am just following a thought so lets just see where it will take me. That said, 5 things I have learned this week.

1. Sparkly kids Lip Gloss does not come off little ones arms and legs with soap and water. Nope, that is a job for Dawn dish soap. Why is it on arms and legs and not lips? Good Question!

2. I might possibly live in the only place in the country where you can leave a vehicle running in front of your house and leave for dinner for 5 hours and no one notices! oops, not me that would be my husband :)

3. Watching five little girls for a couple days was not as hard as I imagined but it is a bit exhausting. At least I know that I can do it! Good to know just in case we decide to have more. Ha Ha

4. My husband likes women's Olympic beach volleyball, imagine that! I had no idea until now - since he has never been a sports kind of guy in the seven years we have been married, he claims to like all volleyball but I am not so sure.

5. Craig's list, I had no idea! Like I need another thing to distract me from laundry. Thanks Di.
