1. My favorite way to start a relaxing day is to fix my coffee, and then sit down to the computer and read my email, my favorite blogs and catch up on Facebook. It can sometimes by only 30 minutes or on a really relaxing day, I love to spend an hour or sometimes two, depending on what I have to do that day. Then I get up and dress, and go about my day....Oh, and I grab breakfast sometime during that time. This doesn't include fixing anyone's lunch or breakfast, because this is based on a day when I don't have to do that!

2. Least favorite chore is cleaning the bathroom....sometimes I put on music to make it go by faster!

3.No I don't have a lot of help with housework, and I have this "guilt" feeling about hiring someone to help. If I go back to work next year, though, I will seriously consider it!

4. Favorite type of reading material is a good novel, that pulls you right into and "takes" me away to another place!

5. I would likely jump on a plane to see my kids and celebrate what they find out tomorrow. Otherwise, I might jump on a plane to Paris or Italy...but a weekend would be way too short!

1. What is your favorite way to start the day? Coffee, tea, blogging, reading news? Tell us about your "relaxed morning" routine. It seems like my days always are so crazy, I just hit the floor running around.

2. What is your least favorite household chore, and what do you do to make it more bearable? Or do you just slog through it? I HATE cleaning bathrooms and also laundry. I tell myself that if I do it then I can have a piece of chocolate or a diet coke and sit down and read a magazine for a few minutes.

3. Do you have help with your housework, albeit your spouse, your kids, a hired housekeeper? I have all of my kids do chores every day. I recently started having them cook one night a week each and it's been great!

4. Favorite type of reading material? I have to read each night before bed. I love historical fiction - -especially books set in midevil Europe.

5. If cost were not a concern, and you could go anywhere you wanted for the weekend, where would you go? I really want to go to Paris:)

Fun Friday Fives!

XOXO

2. My favorite morning routine is hanging my head over a steaming cup of coffee and reading/responding to posts on my favorite blogs... maybe writing one too.

THIS WEEK, I have no time to enjoy this because I have been teaching ... I miss it!!

2. Least favorite household chore? For some reason, it's unloading the dishwasher. I either slog through it or foist it off on someone else.

3. I have a great deal of help around the house. Unfortunately, that help is often either on business travel or as busy as I am these days.

4. No favorite type of reading. I like too many. If I were to chose a novel that I haven't read, it would probably be Christian historical fiction. I guess my favorite THING to read is poetry.

5. Hmm... probably either Macinaw Island (not sure of the spelling) or Prince Edward Island. There isn't enough money in the world to make me want to fly to get there, though.

1. What is your favorite way to start the day? Coffee, tea, blogging, reading news? Tell us about your "relaxed morning" routine. I make coffee first thing, drink one cup while getting ready, and then drink a second cup while spending about 15 minutes looking at blogs. I can't wait until summer break when I can sit as long as I want to sit in the morning.

2. What is your least favorite household chore, and what do you do to make it more bearable? Or do you just slog through it?
I hate to dust. I just do it (once in a while).

3. Do you have help with your housework, albeit your spouse, your kids, a hired housekeeper? I have no help. I would like to have a housekeeper come in but I can't bear to pay for something that I can do myself.

4. Favorite type of reading material? Magazines

5. If cost were not a concern, and you could go anywhere you wanted for the weekend, where would you go?
I would go to a weekend long tennis academy at a swanky resort with my hubby.

A Mom After God's Own Heart said...

1. My fave way to start the day is to have a nice cup of tea while reading my devotions/Bible...then I check emails and blog a bit before children wake!

2. My least fave household chore is bathrooms! I just make sure I keep up on cleaning it so its not gross and does not take as long then:)

3. Fave reading material is Christian Living books by authors like Max Lucado or John Piper

4. I would fly to visit my family in Manitoba (14 hours drive, but 2.5 hours plane ride)

1. What is your favorite way to start the day? Coffee, tea, blogging, reading news? Tell us about your "relaxed morning" routine.
I start my day by getting up 15 min before I have to wake Oldest up. I turn off the outside lights and then read email, check the local yard sale site, and of course CNN. During the winter months I include a nice big cup of cappicino!

2. What is your least favorite household chore, and what do you do to make it more bearable? Or do you just slog through it?
I would have to say my least house hold chore is...cleaning toilets but ya gotta do it!

3. Do you have help with your housework, albeit your spouse, your kids, a hired housekeeper?
The boys have just started putting away their own clothes and The Hubster takes the trash out after dinner.

4. Favorite type of reading material?
Blogland
5. If cost were not a concern, and you could go anywhere you wanted for the weekend, where would you go? Somewhere tropical!

Congrats on the new grandbaby Susan!! Can;t wait to hear the news!

April said...

This is always so much fun, Suzanne! Here goes!

1. I always start my day off with a bowl of Cheerios and a glass of Sunny Delight. Then, I read the paper, send Abby off to school, do a little blogging or Facebooking (as time allows!), hop on the treadmill, pick up the house, jump in the shower, and take care of anything else that needs to be done.

2. OK...my least favorite chores are emptying the dishwasher and cleaning out the tubs/showers.

3. My girls often help with cleaning off the dinner table, folding and putting away clothes, and taking out the garbage.

4. My favorite type of reading material is non-fiction, but I do love a good Nicholas Sparks book!

5. I'd probably head for the hills of Tennessee and stay in a swanky mountain cabin...far away from "civilization". When you live in a place like Atlanta, you want to just get away from all the traffic and congestion. Tennessee, to me, is heaven on Earth!

Congrats on the grandbaby can't wait to see if blue or pink!!!
1. I like to get up and drink a cherry dr Pepper with my breakfast. I have to have my caffine for the day. While eating I am online.
2. Since I am caring for my mom. Getting her cleaned and dressed and up in the morning really stresses me out. I am so pooped after and sometimes cry before but I love her and I do it.
3. I have ask for help from my son when it comes to chores or housework and my sis helps me with mom alot.
4. I read the bible everyday and I love the newspaper, and headlines online.
5. I think I would enjoy a trip to Hawaii for the weekend. But I just might not come back. :)
