Better late than never.....

Here they are, people. My Friday five....on Saturday.
1. What is the most physically painful thing that has ever happened to you?
I want to say have a baby...because that hurts like a hammer to the head (not that I know how that hurts, but I can imagine.) but we all know birthing hurts.
Throwing up is pretty painful. First there is the build up to the thing. You know, the whole stomach/head nausea. Ugh! Then the mouth starts to saltwater....ick! Then the heaving, and hawing. Then again. And again. And once you see your stomach hit the toilet, you do it one more time.
But the worst pain is throwing up while giving birth. Yeah. That!

2. How much sleep do you get at night?
Are we talking continuous 4 hours straight? Because I haven't had continuous sleep in 11 years. But I usually get to sleep for 3 hours in a row. That's usually when the "I had a bad dream."..."I peed my bed, can I sleep with you?"..."Wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!" ... "I can't breath out of the right side of my nose. Help me!!!" starts.
But on average, in spurts I get about 5 hours of sleep. If I'm lucky. If I hide in the Harry Potter room under the stairs.

3. How long did you believe in Santa Claus? How did you find out that he does not exist?
What!!! Who told you that! He IS real.
Well, I started to suspect when I saw my mom making a doll and then later saw that doll was near my stocking with a tag saying "From Santa". That was my first clue.
I was a little sad. But the great thing about the knowing is the becoming. Becoming the Santa for everyone who still believes. Because Christmas is in the giving.

4. What was the last movie you saw in a theater?
Despicable Me. Very cute. And funny. It was a hit with my boys. Why? Farting, farting fumes, burping. Yup, it had it all. But it wasn't too much. I cried. A little. In the dark. No-one saw.
Before that was Toy Story III. I cried in that one too.
And before that it was Eclipse. I cried on that one, only because I know how long I am going to have to wait for the next one. I still get choked up when I think about it......

5. What do you wear to bed?
Umm... I am a little uncomfortable with this line of questioning.
Actually, I sleep in sweats and t-shirt. Sometimes I have on socks, sometimes not. I can't sleep without pants...(read about that here from my other blog.)
And I have to have something covering me...only not my feet. At least one of my feet has to be out of the covers.  Lame, I know
And there you have it! See ya next week!

  1. I don't like having my feet covered either...My hubby who is always cold thinks that is odd...I on the other hand sleep better that I don't care. Nice to know someone else is as odd as I am.
