"Answer Me This" Linkup, Week 4



Kendra at Catholic All Year is hosting a weekly linkup. She provides the questions, you provide the answers, and then you link up with everyone back on her page. It's a great way to get to know a little about your fellow bloggy travelers, as well as a chance to consider some things about yourself that you hadn't before. Join us! 

Kendra's answers, next week's questions and the linkup can be found here.

1. Are you becoming your mother?
In some ways. I spent my late adolescence self-assuredly insisting that I was never going to have kids, because I was afraid I'd be too much like my mom and my kids would resent me. Oh, teenage me.

My mom isn't perfect. But she is an amazing woman. 



2. Coffee or tea?
Coffee, although I think I like it more than it likes me. As a singer, tea is something I've always wanted to like, but haven't ever been able to manage it. I just don't like it. 


3. What foreign country would you like to visit?
Well... Given the time off and an unlimited vacation budget, I'd go back to Ireland and stay until I'd seen all the things. I was there when I was fifteen -- and had my first kiss on St. Paddy's Day night in Dublin! -- and would love to go back with my husband and kid(s). But if we're discussing places I've never been that I'd like to see? I guess Wills and Kate's official visit to Australia and New Zealand did the trick because I want to go to there.


4. Do you cry easily?
I tear up likethat when I hear stories about... Well, I don't want to make anyone else cry. But babies and kids are my Achilles heel of keeping my eyes dry. Just can't do it if I hear a sad story about a baby. And check out my contribution to Blythe's One Hot Mess linkup if you want to hear about my crying for a whole day recently.


5. How often do you wear heels?
I work full-time from home so I live a barefoot life. I try to doll it up for Mass, but I often do two in a row (which, with choir warmups beforehand and the space between Masses is about four hours all told), and my poor flat feet just can't do four hours in heels. I literally hobbled home the last time I tried. 


6. Do you play an instrument?
I play my own little pipes -- my voice box. I never had any kind of music lessons (until voice lessons as a college freshman), but we had a Miracle when I was in middle school or so. My parents dismantled it for Christmas because it was in the way of the tree and never put it back up. They say it's because we never used it but I did!

Hop on over to Kendra's blog and link up! I promise it'll be fun. Meanwhile, my little fever-face -- fourth day running with a temperature over 103°! What is happening! -- is finally up and so I have to go get her. Which means I'll be either watching Frozen or trying desperately to distract her from her pleas to watch Frozen in about four minutes.

  1. Ahhhhhh - my four year old was sick last week and wanted to watch Frozen every second. I hope she is feeling better soon and you can let it go for a while.

    1. I just can't bring myself to be tough about it and refuse to let her watch it nine million times when she's been burning up for days! But we're going to have to hide it from her as soon as she's well because otherwise the adults around here might lose our minds!

  2. My little guy insists that we listen to the Frozen soundtrack while I shower him. Last night I was shampooing his hair while he belted out "...in summerrrrrrr."

    1. Hah! That's usually the song where my munchkin starts wandering around instead of watching with rapt attention. :)

  3. My kids sing Frozen constantly. Despite my repeated attempts to explain the plot inconsistencies to them.

    1. Eighteen-month-old honey badger don't care about no plot inconsistencies.

      I tried to switch her to Tangled today but after about ten minutes she started asking for "Ahhhnna! Ahhhnna!"

  4. I hear songs from Frozen everywhere I go! This afternoon I heard at the hospital while I was visiting my grandmother.
    Hope your little one feels better soon.

  5. I think we're the only family who hasn't watched Frozen. Which is probably crazy because my youngest daughter's name is Elsa...LOL

    1. I don't recommend introducing it to your world -- it's like crack to children and they just want to watch it until their eyes roll out of their heads!
