The Friday 5


  1. What did you last replace batteries for?

    A Flip Camera

  2. What have you thrown away that you probably could have had repaired?
  3. This one is a lot harder than I expected it to be. The answer is probably a shirt that I threw out because the seems on the side and come apart. Now in all honesty, this was before I got my sewing machine, and before I knew I was getting one. So the prospect of hand sewing it didn’t really work for me.

  4. Among items in your line of sight right now, what should probably be put in the trash?
  5. A credit for Snapfish that I’ve already loaded into my account. A box that the replacement cable modem came in and has been sitting on the floor next to my desk for over a month. An potato chip bag that’s empty after Jessalyn polished them off. Some Taco Bell napkins, unused. A dried out marker. Gee whiz, I need to clean up around here!

  6. When did you last use disposable cutlery while dining in your house?
  7. Easy! Friday, October 10. We had 5 extra people here for dinner in honor of my son’s 12th birthday and so we used paper plates and platic utencils to eat dinner with that night.

  8. Whose actions cause you to waste time you otherwise wouldn’t waste?
  9. I’m looking at you my fellow Skype chatters! Actually I have no one to blame but myself. I’m the one with the power to get up and walk away from my computer and get busy with other things. Skype chatting is the biggest timesuck I find myself not walking away from.

    Unfortunately I have no interesting stories to go along with today’s Friday 5. I actally have quite a bit to do around here today. Tomorrow is my oldest daugher’s 14th birthday. (Hold me) She’s having some friends over for the night and I really need to clean up this place before I go pick her up from school this afternoon. So I’m leaving the blog now, but will probably just close this window and open up the skype chat so I can get sucked into that and waste more of the day away.
