Five Question Friday

Hey there! It's time for five question Friday hosted by Mama M.

My Little Life

So, away we go...

1. Worst trouble you ever got into as a teenager?

Um, I was actually pretty good as a teenager. I know, wow, how surprising. Ha! I was (still am) so awful at lying to my parents. Heck, I'm really bad at lying to anyone. Good thing, I suppose.

2. Are you a morning person or a night person?

I have to say I'm a night person for sure! I stay up way too late...all the time. Just ask my sweet husband. However, I'm a wannabe morning person. I really would like to start waking up earlier. Why, you may ask. Well, it would be just swell to have some quiet time in the morning to make coffee (my husband always makes the coffee in the morning), have a cup of coffee in peace and quiet, spend some time doing my Bible study and saying a prayer to start the day. I've found that the times I've done this (uh, not often by any means) just makes for a better start to the day. Heck, maybe I'll even start exercising in the morning...big goals, I know. I'm thinking if I 'write' them down here, it'll make me more accountable. You know, you family and friends of mine out there can be like, "Hey, Ana. How's that whole waking up earlier thing workin' out for ya?"

3. Are you a one-handed or a two-handed Texter?

Well, if I had a more text friendly phone, I would for sure be a two-handed texter. Right now, I have a razor. I'd like a phone with touch screen and a physical qwerty day. Any recommendations?

4. Democrat, Republican, or Independent..or maybe even Green Party (whatever that is).

If I had to pick, I would say Republican. I definitely have a more conservative/ government only intervene when necessary, please type of outlook. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for loving on and helping out the less fortunate (referring to the Democrats here). However, how about some accountability and responsibility for one's actions. Anyways. The whole politic/ politician thing kinda drives me nuts. Because no matter what a politician says they stand for, it often turn out to be a lot of talk most of the time. Or, they say such and such, but don't truly reflect it in their actions. Whatever! I could go on and on about this. Maybe I'll do a post on this someday. I'd most certainly need to organize my thoughts!

5. Are you a pet person?

Yes, I'm a dog person. I loved growing up with dogs as a kids and want to give the same to our boys. Plus, I love the protection dogs can provide. We have a black standard poodle and her bark sounds pretty fierce. When people come to the door, it takes them aback...even when after they see her. I think that's kind of funny because she doesn't look mean to me. I mean really, how mean can a poodle look? And she really is super sweet! Yep, all you have to do is pet her and she's your best friend for life. Oh, there was this one instance. We had recently bought some new furniture and had to have something on one of our couches repaired. Well, the guy that came to fix it seemed normal enough to me. But, Maisy would not stop growling at him! That is the first and only time she's ever done that. It made me feel good, like she was protecting me. It's nice to have that extra sense of security!

That all, folks! If you like to participate and link up in Five Question Friday, just go here.

Have a great weekend!

It's funny how you pictured life as "a morning person"; that's how I think of it too! Sometimes, I manage to get up before work and exercise, but that's few and far between these days. On the days I DO wake up early, I end up wasting more time on the computer than anything else, and STILL end up rushing!

Crazy about dogs, isn't it?! Ours sound like long lost separated sisters...'cept we have a Lab! :) She barks at everyone 'til she knows their time, we had a chimney sweep come over (a la Mary Poppins, but he didn't sing...) and she barked and growled and her hair stood on end.

Weird...but, I feel safe with her around...even tho' I just "tolerate" her!! ;)

I am completely like you on the morning person thing! Only I'm afraid to even blog the idea of getting up earlier...LOL

Texting phones - I have a G1 for Tmobile. It's the google phone. Now they sell the G2 which is called "My Touch". If you have Tmobile, it is SO great to have. It's made life so much easier. (Built in, free GPS, gmail, etc, plus internet capability and the "keyboard" is a touch keyboard. And you can download apps, which are cheaper than iphone apps...and most of them are free!
