We Want To Know Wednesday!


So, these fun gals ( Impulsive Addict , Janette , Mamarazzi , and Shawn ) are dying to know how I will answer these questions...

{1.} What must you do before you go to bed at night?

Take out my contacts lenses and I have to do it last thing before I get into bed because I am blind as a bat. (Right now, the Rev is reading and he is griping about how I don't wear the expensive glasses that I have enough and I should just be taking my contacts out earlier and wearing said glasses more often...blah, blah, blah...)

{2.} What is one thing you must snack on at the theater?

My favorites are Milk Duds, Twizzlers, and popcorn. If I have Milk Duds or Twizzlers I buy them before hand at the store and sneak them in in my purse (don't judge!--that's how Mom raised us!). If we do popcorn, we usually split that and a drink because movie theater concessions are crazy expensive!

{3.} Before going on vacation what must you do?

Fully clean the house top to bottom. I get this from my Mom. If something happens to me while I am on vacation, like an accident or I die, I can't have people coming into the house and talking trash thinking I live like a pig and have you seen how the Rev attempts to make the bed? Cleanliness is next to Godliness---it's not in the Bible, but it still has to be true...it just HAS to be...

{4.} What is one thing you must do every day?

I am assuming that the necessities like bathroom, hygiene, eating, are already a given, so I'll go with talk to the Rev. There have not been many days in the 11 years that we have known each other that we have not talked at least once. We spent hours on the phone every night when we were dating. He always complains that I don't talk on the phone as long when he calls anymore (since working in customer service, I loathe the phone!). He is going to stay on campus for a week next month to take a Master's module, so maybe I will blow up his phone with calls!

{5.} Is there something you do that must be done in a particular order?

Cleaning (please see #3 if you are still oblivious to the need for cleanliness...). Pick up any stray items and put away first, then all of the dusting/polishing furniture, bathroom and kitchen next, vacuum, then mop. I do not appreciate interruptions or deviation from this order...and if I come to your house (which I would totally do!), I will do it the same way!

Good thinking on the cleaning before going away...that's so true and right up there with wearing a fresh, clean pair of undies each day, haha

I'm with you on the contacts thing. I refuse to take them out until right before I go to bed. I have glasses that I COULD wear and DO occasionally but they're really old but they're not that great so I just avoid them.

With two boys and the Doc, I have almost given up on my house looking clean. But I try.
I'm such a rule follower that sneaking food into a movie makes me feel horrible!!

I straighten up the house before we go, but make sure there are no dishes in the sink--to me the house is "Clean" if there are no dishes in the sink, weird but it works for me.

1. Yep. I have to wear contacts or glasses if I want to see anything. I get it.

2. Milk duds? Ew. Twizzlers? Ew. Buttery popcorn? YUM!

3. OMG. OCD much? There is medicine for that. Check into it.

4. Don't you pray every day? I think you forgot to add that. Just sayin'..in case the PEOPLE are reading.

5. Um. Who knew you were such a clean freak? Feel free to come see my house and clean for a bit. Kthanks.

Did you miss me? I missed you. I'm behind on my reading. VERY BEHIND.

I have to take my contacts out too. I don;t know how my hubby sleeps in his!

I guess I need to start bringing in my own candy, I never thought about doing it but it is stupid expensive!

I clean too, not top to bottom more like straightening up on steroids but it has to be clean!

I call that cleaning before I clean and I do the same thing! When I had a cleaning lady I would always clean before she came. Not many people understood that but I think you would!

I used to be so bad about taking my contacts out... I'd just leave them in.. for days, weeks, months... until the edges curled up, or I became senstive to the light b/c of something the lense did to me... I said SCREW IT! I'm too lazy for this and got lasik.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

I do the same thing when I go to the movies (ok when I use to go, I haven't been to one in years since having kids).

I love you, you rock cleaning your house before vacation. Man I love that saying and I need to be better with it because lately I have been doing my share.

I so need you to come here and get me motivated to clean like that :)
