Five Question Friday for November 5, 2010

Good morning!  I hope you've all had a great week.  I know mine was a little "off" this week and I have to attribute it to the sugar consumption, or at least I hope that's all it was.

This weekend, I will be taking the twins to a Remembrance Day service where their Guiding and Scouting units will lay wreathes on the war memorials.  I think it's important to teach them about Remembrance Day and why we remember those who have served to protect our country.  While I know November 11 is the appointed day to remember, I hope you're all remembering and sharing the importance with your own children if you have them.

On a happier note, it's Five Question Friday time!  I hope you'll pop over to My Little Life to link up and play along!

1.  If you could have any talent and turn it into an occupation, what would it be?

Okay, don't laugh.

I would love to be magically inclined and be able to remedy the world of their woes.  You don't like your nose?...snap my fingers and instant nose job.  Need to lose weight?...snap, you're now a perfect size 2!  

Just think of all the money to be made if I could snap my fingers and rid people of their body image grievances or medial ailments that don't have cures?  You've got cancer?...snap, now you don't, you're healthy as a horse!

The possibilities are endless!

2.  Would you rather have a house at the beach or a cabin in the woods?

Can't I have both?  I would like a cabin in the woods but with a waterfront.  Ideally it would be in the Muskoka's.  Fishing, swimming, boating could all be done on the lake and then you could retreat to your cabin in the woods when the weather was crummy or just to snuggle by the fireplace on those cool summer nights.

3.  Is there any meaning or reasoning for the names you chose for your chilren/child?

For the twins there was no reasoning or meaning at all.  I went through a name book and picked out the ten boy and girl names I liked best.  Trevor then went through my list and crossed out the ones he didn't like.  By process of elimination, we ended up with their names.  Our only criteria was that they were "different".  They didn't have to be off the wall like celebrity babies; but, we didn't want them to be common either.  I think we succeeded with that.

For Pickle, I loved the show Charmed and actually wanted to use the name for Pretty; but, Mr. Twingle was totally against it.  I never lost my love of the name and so when we found out it was a girl, I started to refer to her as Pickle and the name stuck!

4.  What is your guilty pleasure?  (I know we've done this one before; but, I'm guessing people's "guilty pleasures" change frequently.)

Right now I'd have to say my Guilty Pleasures are Christmas movies.  I dug them out about two weeks before Hallowe'en and I've been watching them whenever I can.  I love Christmas; not the commercialism of it; but, the feel good sensation and spirit of the season.

5.  Do you live in a house that is deep cleaned or straightened?

Deep cleaned?  With kids?  I don't think so.

We straighten daily to keep the toys and fur bunnies from the cat and dog at bay.

I would love to deep clean, you know, get down on my hands and knees and scour the floors and baseboards, scrub windows, etc...but realistically with three kids, that's not going to happen.  Or at least, not frequently.  We do mop the floors and vacuum and all that on a fairly regular basis; but, it's definitely not a deep clean.  It's enough to get the surface dirt and make the floors less sticky!

Maybe when the kids are older, I can employ them to do the deep cleaning!
