Five Question Friday

1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?
No. Thank goodness. But I've had horrible dreams that I have!

2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like...first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!)
The very first "real" date I went on was with a boy named Chris. We went to a Mexican restaurant that no longer exists in our town and had a platter of stuff that we loved, so we got the same thing over & over the rest of the times we went there. It was a big circular dish with all these different "fixins" on it. They gave you a big container of warm tortillas & you could fill them in whatever way you liked---chicken, beef, veggies, etc. No idea why I remember the particular dish, but that's what we had.

3. What's your "silly" fear? (We're not talking water and heights.)
I don't really think it's silly, but I guess other people would feel differently. And I suppose "fear" isn't really the right word for it, but mice/rats/rodents give me the creeps. We're talking some serious heebie-jeebies. We used to live in a very old house that was constantly infested with mice. I hatedddddd it! I was soooo glad when we moved out of that house!!!

4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away?
run! I hate conflict, hate to confront people. In fact, I'll let people walk all over me for a LONG time before I finally boil over & stay something. And if I'd just said something from the get-go, I wouldn't be looked at as the evil witch, but I don't. You'd think that by now I would've learned that lesson, but I really just hate to have conflict with people!

5. Wood floors or carpet?
I love how wood looks & would enjoy having more of it in our house, but for now we have mostly carpet. It's gross and I know it, but we can't afford to replace all our floors, so we just have to live with it.
