What a tough week we had. Chloe is getting better but she has a lot of liquids coming out of her nose and eyes and of course now I am going through whatever she had. She is sleeping though the night but now I am not due to coughing and the aches and pains of being sick. What a cycle of germ nightmares. For those of you that have followed me through out the years you know this is my least favorite time of year due to tax season. So yes I have been up to my elbows in receipts and what not from 2008’s year of our dental office and our alpaca business. Got to get those W-2’s done for the employees, or I don’t know what Uncle Sam gets a big stick and wraps you across the knuckles. My goal was to get it all done by the end of January, but with Chloe being sick and now myself it is really putting holes in my plan. Looks like when I need the most rest is when I have the most work. Anyway on a happier note lets go through a few Friday Questionnaires.

Five Question Friday
My Little Life

1) What is better, growing old with out money or dying young and wealthy?
I would have to say that both options suck. I wouldn’t pick either one. I believe we choose our own destiny by the choices we make. I definitely choose to live a long and healthy life. If I had no money I would be working towards making some.

2) Who takes out the garbage at your house?
Sunday afternoon Chris will drag the large trash can to the end of our very long country driveway and place it out for the trash pick up on Monday morning. On our country road there is only us and one other household that has set up trash pick up. Everyone else just either burns their trash or takes it to the dump themselves. We are not on the city grid for trash pick up. We also do not have mail delivery in our village, we all have to drag our butts to the post office to pick up our mail.

3) Have you ever had the same dream many times?
Yes, or shall I say the same kind of dream. I have a couple different types that I have all the time for many years. One is the dream where I am out in the middle of the ocean at night and I am just swimming around hanging out with different sea life. This dream I like. It is very peaceful. The other reoccurring dream I have is where I am lost or I have lost something. Like I will be leaving a store and will wonder for hours in a parking lot trying to find my car. Or if I am back in school and I am wondering the halls because I can not figure out where my class is. The worst dream I have started to have since Chloe was born is that she has been kidnapped. It is the worst possible nightmare and I often end up screaming at people and sobbing uncontrollably. I am relived when I wake up to find it was just a bad dream.

4) Can you play a musical instrument?
Yes. Although I have not played in awhile I can play the trumpet and the French horn. The trumpet I am sure I could pick right back up, but the French horn is a little more delicate I would probably need to practice a bit. The instrument I would like to learn to play is the cello. I just love the music it produces.

5) If you owned your own store, what would you sell?
I would sell coffee, books & yarn. It would have a large seating area with comfortable couches and chairs. So you could sit and read with your coffee. On certain days of the week we would have different gatherings of people. Like have a book club one night and possibly a knit group another night. Maybe even do a story time on Saturday for the little kiddies. It would have to be the most wonderful place, a place I would want to spend a lot of time at, because there is no money in such a shop and I would have to be there all the time just to keep a float financially.

Fill in the Blank Friday

The Movie I would watch over and over again is _________.
There are probably at least 100 movies I would watch over and over again. The one I am stuck on for the last couple of years is Pride and Prejudice. The one made in 2005 with Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Bennet. I love this story. I even gave my daughter the middle name Elizabeth named after the character in Jane Austen’s novel. I just love the way the director envisioned this story and put it all together with wonderful music and picturesque landscaping all surrounding beautiful people.

The Friday Fats
I am still doing well with my resolution to loose weight. I will give an up date next week with a tally of the weight I have lost in the month of January. For inspiration head over to: Crystal’s weight loss blog or Toni’s New Beginnings

I love reading all these dreams! I wish someone was able to analyze them all for us...or maybe not...almost scared to find out what they really mean!
I'd come to your shop! I love tea and really want to learn how to knit!

Your water dream sounds so lovely. I've had water dreams, but I am either drowning or chased by an unseen sea creature! NOT lovely!

Do you know I've never read Pride and Prejudice, or any of her books for that matter? I've seen the movies and love them, so I guess I should head to the library soon! ;-)

Thanks for playing along!
