Five Question Friday...

Linked up here!

It's Friday again and time for Five Question Friday!  On with the questions:

1. Tube socks, calf socks, crew, ankle, none? (From@ThisDaddys_Blog)
I have many different types of socks from ankle to knee socks, but I think my fav is my Hanes crew socks for the winter months, but summer is all for flip flops, though if I do wear my tennies in the summer, they are worn with ankle socks :)

2. Was your childs (children's) name a mutual decision or was it a debate? If you don't have children, do you plan on giving your spouse a say, or do you have a name you MUST have, regardless if your other half likes it or not?! (From @momtodh)
Okay, so I am a little bitter with the naming of our children.  Now don't get me wrong, I love their names and they suit them to a T, but I wanted totally different names for my boys. My whole life I wanted to name my daughter Leora after my great grandmother, but alas, I didn't have a daughter. I wanted to name one of my sons Ezra after my granfather, but my husband is totally against "old-timey" names.  But for the names they were given, we did come to an agreement.

3. What is your favorite type of weather? (From@TheSpunkyDiva)
My fav type of weather is rain...I know, I know, how dare I, but I have Lupus and can't be out in the sun, so I am going with cloudy with a chance of rain :)  The air smells amazing after it rains and everything is nice and clean :)  If I do happen be having a good "Lupus day" it's low-to-mid 70s with a slight breeze.

4. If left to your own devices, what time would you wake up every day? (From Sandy at "Pardon My Dust")
I guess I am left to my own devices.  I get up at 6:30 every morning to get the kids off to school and I usually come in and go back to bed (lucky me!) and don't have to get up until 9:30 to get A from school!!!

5. Have you bought your cemetery plots yet? (From Pam at "Troop Petrie")
GROSS! I don't even want to think about having a plot yet, but I have decided that when I die, I want to be cremated and poured into the ocean.  I have already told my husband that I want him to put my ashes in a cardboard box, wrap it up like a present and have a party to celebrate my life. I then asked him to go on a cruise and pour my ashes into the ocean.

Well, that's it! I hope that you all have a great weekend! 
Our forcast is calling for rain pretty much the whole weekend, so...

Thankful Thursday...

Today, I am thankful that I got up early to take Zachary to my MILs
so I could volunteer at the boys' school for field day....

Only to find out I was a WEEK early... 

But I had time to laugh with and talk to Zach while getting him ready.
I had a quiet drive to the school and subsequently back home.
and I was able to get myself a Diet Coke at the gas station before I realized my error...


Today, I am thankful for happy accidents...
BTW, Zach was not an accident...he was perfectly planned :)

I finally got around to making my very own Mommy Arms for our
upcoming Disney trip!  I made three pairs and...
like everything else I have made with my new sewing machine...
they aren't perfect, but I am happy with them. 
Can you say holy horrible pictures Batman?!
I totally suck at taking decent pictures with this camera.

I can't wait until the fall (actually I can)...
when I can get more knee socks to make more of these.

BTW, I have to wear these, or long sleeves because I have Lupus,
 and I can't be in the sun for extended periods of time...
If I am, my illness flares up and the next few weeks are going to BLOW! 

I personally think these arm covers are great because
I can wear them outside to protect my arms  from the sun,
but when I get inside , I can take them off! 
Therefore, I don't have to go out and invest in a ton of long-sleeve shirts,
 or slather on the sun block every five minutes,
AND I can still wear my tank tops...

EEKS!  Just had a Miniere's attack......I HATE THOSE! 
Gee, how many problems and ailments can one woman have???

Do I need a vacation or what?!?!
