1. If you had to choose, how would you prefer to choose to spend money...on landscaping or a pool?
Well, since i currently live in a neighborhood that does not allow pools any bigger than those little baby pools, i would definitely spend money of landscaping. In fact, we have done bits of landscaping here and there over the years--flowers and lights up the walkway, a beautiful pond with a fountain by the front windows--but nobody took care of the upkeep, so everything died and the pond and fountain got ruined. So, in hindsight, along with the money spent on landscape, i would save some to pay a landscaper once a month to care for said landscape.
2. Death penalty, yea or nay?
That would be a big no. IMO, no one has the right to take another one's life, except for our Creator. I do believe real criminals should be punished by a very long jail sentence, but i don't believe that death should be considered part of that punishment.
3. What is the worst thing your kid has gotten into when you turned you back/blogged/showered/blinked?
My kids are all teens now, so it's been a while since i had to keep an eye on them, but i the worst thing i can remember is Matt getting his head stuck inbetween the banisters in my mom-in-law's house when he was about 2. Wow, did i panic about that one! Thank God for cool-headed grandmothers! She somehow got his head out of there while i ran around in a panic! I am sure that Rachel got into a lot of trouble too, since she used to be known as "the little tornado" by everybody who knew her well :-)
4. How often do you REALLY go to the dentist?
Not often enough...for sure. Up until a year ago, the kids didn't even go regularly, and had the cavities to prove it. But, we got them back on track, filled most of the cavities, and got them on a cleaning schedule.
Me, i have not seen a dentist for probably about five years...at least. Yuck, i know that's not good. Once the kids are all done with their teeth problems, i will make an appt to start taking care of mine. Even though we have insurance, it still is way out of our budget to spend the amount of money the dentist charges us. I don't know what we would do without insurance! Well, yes i do actually, since that is why the kids went so long between visits...lack of insurance. I really, really hate how much it costs just to keep our bodies healthy...and don't even get me started about how much it costs if one of us gets sick!! UGH
5. What is your favorite animal?
Definitely dogs. I love horses too, but dogs can stay in your house and ride in your car and sleep on your bed...not so with horses, lol.
wow, i don't know why my typed letter all of the sudden changed and got lighter and smaller, lol.
