Friend Makin Monday- 20 Questions


Amber over at aefilkins is hosting Friend Making Monday again.. and I had to join in.. so much fun!

1. Do you cook every night?

I guess that depends on how you define "cook." Every now and then we will eat out (about once a month) and every now and then Tim will bring a pizza home on his way. For the most part I cook most of the time. Tim likes to cook as well and gives me some days off.. so I really can't complain :-)

2. What kind of laundry detergent do you use & why?

All free and clear.. one of the only kind that doesn't make me itchy!

3. Do you do laundry every day or loads at a time?

I do laundry on Wednesday only.. I hate it.. so I can handle one day of doing it!

4. How often do you eat out per week?
hmm maybe once a week for lunch w/ just Sammy... then if we have a date night (we trade of baby sitting with some friends) we usually go out that night as well.

5. Where do you usually eat out?
chick-fil-a.. then on date nights.. we try and switch it up and go somewhere different each time :-)

6. What is your favorite retail store?
Target would certainly be my favorite as well!

7. What's your favorite thing to drink?
Mountain Dew!! So bad but is my favorite.. my BIL Greg and I call it the yellow nectar of life ;-)

8. Do you take vitamins? What kind?

No. I have had 10 (yes 10) kidney stones and was told I should NOT take vitamins so I wouldn't produce anymore.

9. What percentage of the household chores to you do?
hmmm I don't know.. we don't really keep track.. if it needs to get done we do it. A guess would be 50%.. thanks Tim!

10. Do your children do chores? {Or will they, did they, etc}
Not yet.. but he certainly will. We are currently working on cleaning up toys when he is done playing with them.

11. Do you go to church?

Yes, we both volunteer at the church so we are there almost every week.. Well except for the winter when Sammy gets sick from the nursery.. I'm hoping that changes now that he is in the "preschool" room.

12. Do you have a housework schedule?
No, but I need one! I need an insight into yours. I make lists, but I would like to have a system. - hehe Okay.. I am not even going to change what Amber wrote.. I totally could have written this!!!

13. Do you keep a working budget?
Not really.. we are trying to get better at that.. tips?

14. What do you do at night as a family?
We eat dinner together.. read stories to Sammy.. usually after he is in bed we do chores around the house and read together. We don't watch a whole lot of tv.. I tend to get sucked in and can waste so much time :-P

15. How do you prepare yourself for a new week?
I don't.. but I'm working on a plan.. I work on Monday mornings so I tend to get organized after I get done working.

16. What do your mornings look like?
Wow they are so different... on Mondays and Fridays I leave before Sammy gets up and work in the office. When I am home we get up have breakfast.. I surf blogs Sammy plays with some toys. Then we get ready for the day.. whatever we might be doing :-P

17. What time do you get up in the mornings?
Mondays and Friday's 6. All the other days 7. Sometimes I get to sleep in on the weekends :-) Thanks Tim!

18. What time do you go to bed at night?

No later than 11.. but usually around 10:30.. I like my sleep!

19. How do you manage all of the paperwork that floods into your household? {bills, school work, magazines, ads, etc}
Ours bills sits on the table or the buffet until I deal with it. Trash goes straight to the trash. We have a lot of things setup to be paperless so they come to my email account.

20. How do you keep your household organized? {calendars, charts, etc}
Currently I keep it in my head.. I am bad about caring a planner around.. I should use some of my phones features.. I will have to work on this!

I loved reading all about you. It's fun to see how other people roll.. I still don't have the laundry thing down, feel like I'm doing it all the time. As far as housework I've been breaking it down by day.. like every Mon.pay bills, groc shop; Tues. dust main areas one week alternate bedrooms the next.. Wed: vacuum... thurs. bathrooms..etc.

seems to be working for me rather than trying to do it all in one day. Some days I double up so I can have the next day free depending on my schedule.

I think we all just have to figure out what works for us..good luck!
