The cat’s outta the bag…

Finally…  It’s Friday…  I’m ready for some R&R this weekend so that I can enjoy the weather anomaly of 70° temperatures in February.  Admittedly, this week has been especially tough since I would much rather be at the park with the munchikin than sitting in a cubicle.  At least I’m near the window, I guess…
On to…


1. Have you worn the same outfit more than one day in a row?
You mean there’s something wrong with that?  Honestly, I don’t have that many clothes that fit, so sometimes it’s a necessity to wear the same clothes if I don’t have time to do laundry.  I do have my limitations, though.
I’ll wear the same shirt a second day if it wasn’t worn an entire day (or night) and looks/smells clean-ish.
I’ll wear the same jeans until they are dirty.  And I’m not counting that little peanut butter schmear from the munchikin.
I’ll wear the same bra for weeks without laundering.  But mostly because I only have one that really fits.  I know.  That’s really sad.  But I will not reuse panties.  That’s crossing the line.
I also will not wear the same outfit within a 3 day period in front of the same people.  I don’t know why I care.  People see me in the same clothes over and over again anyways.  But I guess I don’t want people to realize that I’m doing it.  Although, I guess the cat’s out of the bag now…
2. If you had to choose any LARGE city to live in, which would it be?
I already live in a big city.  But if I had to pick a different big city, I’d say Milwaukee or maybe Seattle.  I’ve been to Milwaukee several times and despite the 9 months of winter they experience, it’s a really cool town.  Very progressive.  And my liberal, social-worker self digs that.  That’s why I’m thinking I would like Seattle, too.  They have very specific city planning ordinances.  Which makes a world of sense.  Strange reasons, I know, but I moved from the suburbs to the city to vote on a city charter, so I guess that already makes me weird.
3. Fly or drive with the kids on vacation?
I love the expediency of flying.  But being strapped in a small confined space with a toddler?  No thanks.  We’ve driven as far as 9 hours and while it was tough because my kid doesn’t sleep in the car, we survived.  Thank you, Dora.  And on the road you can stop and explore sights on the way, which we really enjoy.
The Horicon Marsh that we stumbled upon on our way across Wisconsin last summer.  That’s why we drive…

4. What is your idea of “spring cleaning”?
What’s that?  Actually, I would absolutely love to spend a day deep cleaning the carpets and washing baseboards, but I’m lucky if I clean the toilets every other week.  I’ve asked the hubs several times for a cleaning lady as a gift, but…  So, I guess I just need to tie dust cloths to my kid’s feet and make peace with the rest of my grimy house.

5. What is the best book you have ever read?
I actually haven’t been an avid reader for many years.  I’m trying to get back into it with the help of Life as Mom’s Booking It!  But back in the day when I used to read more frequently, I was a big Ayn Rand fan and I loved Atlas Shrugged.  These days I read a lot of non-fiction.  Which is far less engaging, however, I do enjoy the learning acquired.  I guess it fills the void left from not taking college courses.

    Great questions! Number two is my favorite. I've been contemplating a trip with my 19 month old daughter and wonder how far she will actually go without freaking out.
