Five Question Friday

The weekend is here and that can only mean one thing---it's time for Five Question Friday, hosted by Mama M.@ My Little Life. I've spotted these on many Friday blog posts and have finally decided to join in the fun.

1. What words do you use on your blog/online that you don't use in real life?

I'm not sure why, but this question seems odd to me. I actually do talk the way I write...y'alls and all!

2. Do you still write checks?

A check, what's that? Only teasing! We may be one of the few families that hasn't completely made the full transition to online bill pay, although we're close. In a given month my husband maybe writes 2 checks. Unless of course it's a month when I've gotten my hair done. I always write a check to my stylist!

3. Who was your favorite President and why?

Ummm...pass, but I do find it interesting that this question is phrased in the past tense. I'm guessing the author of this question is not an Obama fan?!

4. Are you a yeller?

Am I a yeller? Well, it depends on who you ask. When I taught elementary school before becoming a stay-at-home mom, my students may have answered, "sometimes" or "only at so and so." My husband may nod emphatically, "yes!" But, my 8 month old, Gillian Grace has yet to hear me raise my voice. After reading other mommy blogs and listening to friends with children much older than mine, I've decided to save all my yelling for her teenage years!

5. Have you ever dumpster dived?

If the smell alone wasn't enough to initially convince me that dumpster diving wasn't for me, the thought of running into a furry four-legged creature while inside would definitely do the trick! But on the flip side, I've never spotted anything in or near a dumpster worthy of a dive into the ol' trash heap. So we will see, never say never. But I can promise you this, if I ever find myself knee deep in the neighbor's refuse, y'all would definitely be the first to read about it!

Now it's time to share your thoughts! How would you answer Mama M.'s 5QF?

Good girl passing on question 3!!! I have made it a point to leave politics off my blog and I think it is a very smart move. People get way too upset about that stuff!!

I still write checks too...for most of the bills! I can't bring myself to do online bill pay for all of them. I guess I'm just an old school girl at heart!

haha, I am a check writer too. For the most part anyways. I find that it's easier to keep track of my spending if I have to write it down. My husband doesn't like it though, if we're out in public he gets embarressed, so when we're together we use our debit card.
