5 Questions about YOU

I’ve been running around town for two weeks getting passports, visas, shots, doctor and dentist appointments, etc. to get ready for our trip to India.  I’ve barely had time to breathe, but I wanted to slow down and ask YOU a few questions.

  • What are YOU doing this summer?
  • What’s on YOUR night stand?  What are you reading?
  • What is YOUR favorite breakfast cereal?
  • What is the weirdest thing YOU have ever eaten?
  • What is YOUR middle name?

Just curious.  I find myself boring sometimes.

    Hello,
    I’m a newbie commenter here, but I’ve been a reader for a long time.
    Anyway,
    1. What are YOU doing this summer? – My husband and I are praying about homeschooling this year. We plan to attend a conference this summer on homeschooling in our state.
    2.What’s on YOUR night stand? What are you reading? – My Life in Paris Julia Child, loving it.
    3. What is YOUR favorite breakfast cereal? – Used to be the Quaker Shredded Wheat with raisins inside, but I can’t find it anymore.
    4. What is the weirdest thing YOU have ever eaten? Don’t think I’ve had to many weird things.
    5. What is YOUR middle name? Rae

    1. Not sleeping, changing lots of diapers, breastfeeding, and hopefully getting out of the house every once in awhile. (Our baby #2, a boy, will be born this Wednesday!)
    2. I’m reading a really lousy book right now. I don’t even remember what it’s called. I’m a voracious reader & haven’t been to the library lately, so I had to grab something off my Mom’s bookshelf – and it’s akin to a Harlequin romance. Blech. But I’m still reading it.
    3. Reese’s Puffs. YUM.
    4. Grilled octopus w/ lemon. Quite yummy, actually.
    5. Ann.

    What’s on YOUR night stand? A fan, my phone and eyeglasses and pictures of my kids.
    What are you reading? “Eye’s Wide Open” by Lori’s hubby (its on my nightstand also).

    I’m finally getting the chance to catch up on blogs after a week of concerts and one awesome high school girls’ retreat. So here we go…
    1. 2, possibly 3, weeks of camp. VBS with my parents church. Chicag09. NOT teaching band.
    2. Focusing on Bible study right now. Hebrews for camp. Proverbs for mentoring/studying with a GSM student. James with the Chicag09 team. And Psalms for personal study.
    3. Crispex – completely wheat-free
    4. Wheat-free communion bread
    5. Carol
    Too much info about me. I know.

    Hey Michelle! I’ve been out of town, but wanted to participate in your fun questions. Doesn’t everyone want to talk about themselves?! πŸ™‚ Anyway, here we go . . .
    What are YOU doing this summer? I’m taking care of my kids, as I always do. Each one has something special (camps, missions trips) to look forward to. We’re also taking a college road trip to Williamsburg and Washington D.C. which should be fun.
    What’s on YOUR night stand? What are you reading? I’m in the middle of “Grace-Based Parenting” by Tim Kimmell. Great book.
    What is YOUR favorite breakfast cereal? Hmmm. I don’t have one favorite–I like them all.
    What is the weirdest thing YOU have ever eaten? I’m not an adventurous eater AT ALL. I would die of starvation in India, that’s for sure.
    What is YOUR middle name? Marie. Same as my grandmother, my mother, and my middle daughter.

    I know its late but I’m one of those outsider people who used to go to your church (way back to early atrium days!) and I’ve got insomnia!!
    1. Waiting, waiting, waiting for my husband to get back from deployment. Then, possibly, NEW ZEALAND! For a MUCH needed vacation after going such a long time without communication
    2. Right now? A few things >.< Some of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, Email to the Front by Allesia Holliday (another Navy wife's correspondences through deployments) and I'm currently reading The Host by Stephanie Meyer
    3. Honey Bunches of Oats or Honey Nut Clusters to eat. Count Chocula for fun because my husband looks like him ^_^
    4. Living overseas with the military: probably fetal chickens. I forget what they're called but its chicken eggs that are boiled and have baby chickens in them. Gross, but tasty. Or li Hing Mui. Definitely tastes gross. I do plan on trying dog meat one of these days. Horrible, I know, but when in Rome..
