Five Question Friday - July 29, 2011

A little late in the game compared to normal, but we have been rather busy around these parts lately.
It is most definitely Friday and we have a busy weekend lined up.

On to the questions!

   1. Vowel renewal ceremonies - Yay or nay?

I don't think they will be for me - it just isn't our style. I can appreciate that other people are into that kind of thing. I would attend someone else's.

   2. What sound(s) annoy you the most?

Loud eating for sure. I also get annoyed by animals licking themselves. I don't care that they do it, but I hate the wet sound of the tongue. Yeah, my poor cats get to leave the room if they are being too loud. Snoring is pretty high up there on the list too. Lots of sounds annoy me I guess.

   3. If you had to pick, would you have only all boys or all girls for kids?

Aww man, but I lucked out and had one of each right off bat! If I absolutely have to pick. . . why is this so hard? . . . Ahh, I'll go with boys. I LOVE my girl, but I always wanted multiple boys whereas I only pictured having 1 girl. Multiple girls just sounds like all sorts of drama. . . I don't know how I would live without my 1 little princess though.

   4. Do you believe in alternative medicine?

I believe that many health problems are much better handled with proper nutrition and exercise. If that is "alternative" then so be it. I strongly believe in chiropractic care for overall health and I believe in acupuncture. I believe that changes in one's diet can overcome many ailments. After having Baby Boo I was pretty anemic - to the point where the hospital docs were trying to talk me into a blood transfusion. I refused and had my mom bring me a steak with spinach salad. I continued to eat very high iron foods and my body responded very well to it. I was out of "blood fusion territory" within hours, and back to normal within a few days. The best part was that I didn't have to deal with the side effects commonly associated with iron supplements such as severe constipation. I think that some people don't realize the price paid with so many medications.

I definitely know that conventional medication has it's place, but I think that almost everything is over prescribed.

   5. Would you take a family member's children and raise them if they needed it?

In a heartbeat!


  1. I agree with POV on alternative medicine! I very much believe in chiropractic care also!

  2. Oh man I don't survive pregnancy without chiropractic care.

  4. Same here! I never knew how much I needed or
    until I tried it ..I wont go through another
    pregnancy without it!

  5. I love the steak and spinach salad story! Way awesome. I really think that a blood transfusion is very serious and totally last resort. I can't believe the docs pushed that on you before trying other approaches. Yay you!

  6. I'm like you, always pictured having more boys than girls. I've been blessed with one of each. :)
