Five Question Friday

My dearest Ethan woke up Wednesday night with a fever.
He stayed home from school, yesterday.
He was not happy about that.
He was convinced with some medicine,
he could handle school.
What's worse,
is I couldn't stay home with him.
I'd have no problem calling into work,
and telling them I can't come in,
I'm on course.
I'm attending a PYP workshop.

We made an appointment with the paediatrician today.
So instead of missing the whole workshop,
I missed a bit.
Ethan doesn't have malaria.
It's viral.
We're hoping he feels better soon.

it's Friday!

1. What movie do you love to quote?
I'm not a movie quoter.
I do have lines I love from movies.
What do you want to marry me for, anyhow?
So I can kiss you anytime I want.
Maggots Michael. You're eating maggots.
But I don't quote them.

2. Have you ever ridden a motorcycle?
Oh, you want details?
Nothing too exciting.
Went on a couple dates with a guy who had a bike.
Thought it was pretty cool.
A few years later,
I thought men with bikes were sexy.

3. What's your favourite thing to do on a rainy day?
Make myself a cup of hot chocolate,
curl up on the sofa,
with a blanket
and a book.

4. Do you prefer a bunch of small gifts, or one really big (expensive) gift?
This is a loaded question.
When we go home for Christmas,
small gifts make packing easier.
But not a whole bunch of small gifts.
Big gifts are great.
Except when your brother buys your son
a huge gift and you're stuck trying to figure out how to pack it.

5. Do you ever lose track of days and show up somewhere wrong?
I tend to confuse days.
I'll tell Ethan he has an activity
that he doesn't.
Or confuse my students.
I usually catch it,
so we don't show up somewhere wrong.
when we're on vacation,
I'm utterly clueless!

I enjoyed your answers to the five questions. I especially like the answers to the one about presents. With Christmas coming up I am feeling quite grateful that I don't have to wrap and buy a zillion presents. I used to do that some years ago and when I look back on the experience, I wonder how I ever did it. I have a fairly large family, with five children, fifteen grandchilren, and five greatgranchildren, plus a few spouses of the grandchildren. I solved all my problems by just giving them money. They would actually rather have it than something grandma would give them that they almost always didnt' want or like. Now, at Christmas time all I have to do is bake zillions of cookies and send them Christmas boxes, full of them and other baked goodies. My Christmas is just as busy but at least I am doing something I enjoy, baking I love, shopping for presents, I dislike.

Of course it is different when you are buying gifts for your children when they are small and so look forward to presents. I used to love to do it then.

I too, hope that Ethan is doing much better now. It sure isn't fun to be sick and hard for a mom to have her child ill too. Prayers for him are coming your way.
