2. Will you pay for your children’s college or raise them to pay for their own way?
Ooh – I like Mama M’s answer to this one, though I don’t know if it will be financially feasible. I paid my own way…though technically, I was lucky I was a smarty pants. My 4 year college education cost about $100k, and luckily for me, I got a ton of scholarships and federal grants and work study jobs (teaching after-school French to elementary kids and doing campus tours) that covered damn near all of it. I took out $8,500 for “spending money” when I was going to school in France, and that was the only debt I left college with. Yahoo!! Most of my friends graduated $50k+ in debt, so I thank my lucky stars that I worked hard for all of those scholarships as a high schooler!
3. Have you ever been in a car accident?
Yep. Not a good one. I referenced it back in January in another FQF, but basically, I was driving way too fast, flipped my car a bunch of times, and was lucky enough to walk out of there bruised and broken but alive. I broke 5 ribs, 6 vertebrae, both lungs collapsed, etc… so yeah, quite lucky!
Other than that, just the normal mid-west hitting deer sort of thing. I watched a huge one bounce off the front of my car, FLIP over my car, and land splat on the road behind me. Gave me nightmares for months.
4. What is your favorite book?
I have no idea… like Mama M said, I LOVE LOVE LOVE to read, but after I’ve zipped through a book, I can put it down, think that was a great book, and then promptly forget it. Oops. Most recently I’ve been into Wally Lamb’s books though. She’s Come Undone was AMAZING – I highly recommend reading it if you haven’t!
5. Do you make your bed everyday?
Yep! I’m fairly anal about it. We have a TINY house & people usually have to walk through our bedroom to get to the bathroom, so I think that’s a huge part of it. We’ll see if that habit continues once we have a more private bedroom area and kids everywhere. 🙂
