Friday fives! MORE random questions....

Well, whether you want to or not, you are going to learn a few more things about me today! It is time for the Friday Fives again over at my friend, Beth's blog. So, read on if you are curious....

Just Me and My Life

1. Something I am OCD about....
Hmmm.. well, it is scary but there are lots of things that fall into this category! I will not bore you though and just narrow the list down to one!

So, I would have to say that the top of the list is my kitchen cabinets. I am SO OCD in my kitchen. Everything, from the flour, to the dishes, to even a box of crackers has a specific place and it drives me nuts if someone (sorry, sweetie) puts it in the wrong place.
Is it just me? Surely not.
Really, if I go to someone's home and I see stuff crammed in their cabinets, falling out when you open the door, I have to fight the urge to take everything out and rearrange it.
I am not so bad that all the labels have to face the same direction, but wouldn't that be nice???

2. Your favorite quote
Since I am not one to "quote" people or keep up with random quotes various people have said, my answer to this one is actually a verse:
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, so that all who believe in him should not peri
sh but have eternal life." John 3:16.
It's an old favorite, you just can't go wrong if you remember what this verse says. No m
atter what happens in my day to day life I know I can let it go, because this life is a drop in the bucket compared to what lies ahead in eternity.

3. What is the farthest you have been from home?

I visited the armpit of the world south Korea when my husband was in the military. He spent a year over there, and since I had some pretty good flight benefits while I was a flight attendant I decided to go and spend a couple of weeks. I can tell you it was very interesting and quite disgusting educational!!

4. Do you have a real or fake Christmas tree?
Well, I have recently changed my status on this. I LOVE real Christmas trees. I have always enjoyed taking the kids to help pick out the tree, the smell of it in the house, and just the l
ook of having the real thing. I grew up having a real Christmas tree, so I never really gave it much thought.

BUT! It is so hard to keep them watered, the needles fall with the slightest touch, the really nice ones are rather pricey, and they are generally a pain to clean up. This past year I made the switch!
I bought a PRE-LIT fake tree from someone on Craigslist the day after Christmas the year before. I got a really nice one, the sticker was still on the box reading $299.99. I paid him $50 and it had only been used

I have to admit that I am now hooked! I never went to bed wondering if it was so dry that it would catch fire the next day. It looked great and I didn't have to string the lights!! Hallelujah!! I would love to have a real tree again some day (when I have a maid) but for now I am LOVING my easy tree.

5. First blog
you ever read?
My sister's
blog: Littlebits Designs was the first blog I ever really read. She is the one who got me started. I also read Beth's blog, who got me into the Friday Fives! Now I have several that I check regularly. It is a really great break from the daily grind!
