I just can't help it, I love reality tv. Not all of it, mind you. Josh and I have been getting into the Extreme Home Makeover that is led by Ty Pennington (you might know him from Trading Spaces). A group of designers choose a family and then completely tear down their existing home and construct a new one in its place! It is phenomenal what they do in 7 days! Talk about changing people's lives--changing the world one home at a time. I applaud Ty and crew for what they are doing and for coming up with an awesome show. Our kids love to watch as well! (It's on Sunday nights at 7pm on ABC.)

The big beautiful flake kind of snow! It's gorgeous! I could watch it for hours. Cup of hot tea, warm blanket, good book, low lights and just sit and watch the snow.

Some time ago I participated in a "Friday Five" blog where the contributor would post 5 questions for you to copy and paste to your own blog and then answer them. It was a fun way to have something to talk about. Well that blog ceased to exist, but I have found MANY other blogs with the same idea. So after perusing a couple (i'm not a big shop around kind of gal), I picked Friday Fiver

Here you go...

1. Do you use profanity?
Are we in a court of law?--do I have to just answer the question or do I get to explain? lol Yes I use profanity. I have used it in times of anger, I have used it to tell a joke, I have used it to make a point, and I have used it in reference to what someone said. But is it a regular part of my vocabulary--no.

2. What are your favorite words of frustration?
Farfanugen or Dang it or That Sucks

3. Did your parents ever swear in front of you?
Yes. My mom usually did when she was really really mad. But it was more of a rarity than a daily occurrence.

4. Do you think films should be rated based on the language they use?
Yes I do. I get frustrated especially at PG rated movies for the language. Usually they have a really fun story, but then they add the language and spoil it. My kids (the boys especially) enjoy repeating lines from movies and so I'm leary of allowing them to watch movies that have profanity.

5. If you could curse out someone right now, who would it be?
I'm not mad at anyone right now, so I don't have a desire to curse out anyone. (As a side note, I'm not sure I have ever "cursed out" someone..I've thought about it, but I don't think I ever have.)

It is interesting to me that I am a person who rarely has nothing to say, but yet I find it difficult to blog consistently. I'm always grasping for something to type about! It makes me stop and wonder, do I really say anything of worth all day?
