Five Questions… and Five Answers

October 19, 2012

I’ve decided to try something new for a change and instead of filling in Hilary’s blank statements, I will answer Mama M.’s  5 questions.

So, here goes!!!

1. Where do you hide junk when people come over?

If I don’t have enough time to do a thorough cleaning before people come over, I’ll do a quick run through (driving the family crazy in the process) and put things away in closets, cabinets and the multitude of bins we have in the family room… great for putting all the kids’ toys away so it doesn’t look so cluttered.

2. Do political ads help you decide who you are going to vote for?

I’ve pretty much decided whom I’m going to vote for so the ads don’t sway me one way or another. I’m very excited to be able to vote for the first time since coming to this country.

3. What’s your favorite holiday party to host?

We used to have New Year’s parties a few years in a row and it was always a lot of fun getting ready for those and then ring in the new year with everyone watching the ball drop in Times Square!

4. You go to an island with your husband and can only take one personal item. What is it?

Wow. That’s a tough one. Probably my toothbrush… I hate it when my teeth feel dirty.

5. If you found out your spouse was a Dexter style serial killer (only kills people to save others) would you rat?

Hmmm. I have never watched Dexter so I can’t really compare it would depend I guess. 


Well, this was fun. Something new and different!!! I’m always up for a little change. 🙂

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

xo, Susi


Random questions, random answers

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. If you went through the bad storms and lost power and still don’t have it… I feel for you. It’s no fun, especially in this heat. Stay hydrated and as cool as you can and hang in there!

Monday, a new week, one with a holiday right in the middle… it’ll be my first 4th of July as an American citizen. So, really, it’s my first official 4th of July!!! We won’t be doing much… maybe see the fireworks at the park by our house. Little One isn’t too fond of fireworks and all the noise, so we usually stick close to home and spent a relaxing day together. Family time.

Monday also means time for a list. This week Stasha wants us to answer 10 random questions…

Here we go:

1) Grab the book nearest you, turn to page 23, and find line 4. What is it?

…information the Seeker needed, I would have to explore…

(Finally, started reading this book. It’s definitely no Twilight. But I’m sucked into the story. Love it.)

2) How many times a day do you say Hi?

I’m not sure. At least 4 or 5 times.

3) Have you ever worn a uniform?

Yes, growing up in East Germany we had to wear special uniforms for certain occasions… as young pioneers. ( A white blouse, red or blue neck kerchief and a skirt for the girls, shorts or pants for the boys.) But no regular school uniform.

4) What do you think about the most?

My kids… are they happy, are they having fun, do they have enough food, is she napping? Big kids are at camp during the week and Little One gets into a lot of trouble when she is supposed to nap!

5) How many keys are on your key ring?

Two. I only use the car key though. We have a number lock on the front door and I never use the key anymore. 

6) What was the last thing you bought?

Groceries, before that a new tank top for myself, a summer dress and flip flops and sandals for the girls, all at Old Navy. Love that store. 🙂

7) Are you growing anything these days?

Yes, to my utter surprise… basil and a red pepper plant. The basil is growing fantastically, no peppers on the red pepper plant but its growing and I haven’t killed it, yet. I do not have a green thumb!

8) What is under your bed?

My pilates mat and some dust bunnies.

9) What is most important in life?

Family, friends and happiness.

10) What is the strangest word you used this week?

Penis pump. Yes, I did. After seeing “Magic Mike”… 😉
