I can't believe how quickly this past week has gone by.  While I have been busy, I am going to stick with a simple post of 5 Question Friday.  Feel free to copy the questions and link up at My Little Life

1. Do you feel guilty spending money on yourself?

Actually, I do.  I'd much rather spend any extra money on my kids.   However, if I have been looking for something for the house for a really long time (like that table I just bought) then I get it.  But only, if I can find it at a really good price (like that table I just bought).

2. How well do you know your neighbors?

Well...I know who they are.  I've got neighbors on one side that have 4 kids like we do, but they are never home.  Ever.  I see the dad at restaurants and the mom driving down the road, but never at their house.  The neighbors on the other side of us have 2 kids, and I see the mom more often.  She works with Joe, also.   They should carpool so I can keep the car during the day!  I think times are just different now.  People just don't hang around and have block parties anymore, which is really a shame.  I remember when we moved here 4 years ago.  I was the new one in the neighborhood and yet I was the one to go to my neighbors houses to introduce myself.  They probably thought I was a weird one.  Maybe they are right!

3. What age are you looking forward to being?

I just turned 40 this past June and can finally admit that out loud without hyperventilating!  I can't imagine an age I look forward to being.  However, I look forward to the day my kids are 18 and living on their own!  Ha!   No, Seriously.

4. Do you get excited when the mail comes? Why?

I used to look forward to getting the mail.  Especially when I was little and it was around my birthday.  I loved getting cards and packages.   Now that I am older, all I ever get are bills, so I put off going to the mailbox as often as I can.  My kids LOVE getting the mail everyday and even have their own designated mail days.

5. What is your earliest childhood memory?

I'm not sure how old I was, but because of where I lived, I know I was younger than 7.  As a matter of fact, I think I was younger than 5.  I vividly remember standing in my side yard, which is actually no bigger than a small patch of grass, when an older man was walking down the street.  He was tall, wearing a suit and had gray hair.  He all of a sudden, stopped walking and fell straight back onto the sidewalk.  I remember seeing blood seeping from his head and on the walk.  Our parents (I lived in a 3 family house.  My cousins lived on the 1st floor, we lived on the 3rd) all came out to see what was going on and told us to go into the house.  Some memory, huh?
Have a great night everyone!
