5QF feels as though I just did a 5QF yesterday.  I guess that's a good thing that these winter weeks are flying by.  Is it just me, or has time sped up to WARP SPEED since having kids?

Ok, on with the questions....
1. Do you swim in the winter?

Um, no.  Most of the pools around here (that are affordable to get into as non-members) aren't kept at a very warm temperature.

They're even cold in the summer.

So, no....I don't swim in the winter.

2. Do you love or hate winter?


I could take it or leave it.

Each season has its own beauty.

I love me a white Christmas.

I love hibernating and cuddling up with D on the couch while we watch a movie.

The peace and solitude you see outside on a crispy morning after a fresh that.

Driving in it, not so much.

Driving in it with other morons on the road....really, not so much.

The February blues that come with lack of sunshine and outdoor time....I'd pass on that too.

3. Do you put makeup/actual clothes on when you know you're going to be home all day with just family?

Yoga pants count as actual clothes, right?  If so, I can answer this question in a 50% affirmative.

The make up....well, let's just say there are days I'm out and about all day and choose not to put a lick of make up on (like today, for instance).

4. How old were you when you had your first alcoholic beverage?

Oh dad let us take sips of his PBR when we were little.  That counts, right?  hehe

5. How many ill calls in a 12 month period do you think are acceptable? I the boss or am I the sickie? 

Here's the thing...being sick is one thing.  Taking advantage of it is another.  If you're immuno-compromised, take action to get yourself healthy.  I'd say unless it's a major event/ illness...not more than a week's worth of time to be taken off for sickness.

Happy Weekend!

Yeah, I'm a little confused as how January can be almost done... I've missed 1/12 of the year already - well, not missed, but fallen behind ;)

Mama M. said... just reminded me of the things I love about winter!

Whoa...if yoga pants count, then WOO HOO! I am an overachiever and am dressed all the dang time in "real" clothes! (Confession: I frequently wear my yoga pants out of the I should probably count them as "real", huh?)
