small diversion

I know - I know - photo story of Matthew. I'm on "couch rest" however. Not even at dialysis with Matthew today. I'm home with strep throat! I know! Who gets that when they are older than 10? ME! Put until I'm 48 hrs on antibiotics, that are doing a number on my stomach mine you, I'm laying low. Photo story to come. :) Until then I'm doing a Five for Friday from Mama M. :) (and I don't know how to link to her site, but visit this: She's quite funny. :)

1. What was your favorite wedding gift? Or, if you aren't married, what was your "favorite" gift you gave?
My living room set. Yes, the entire thing - couch, love seat, coffee table, end tables and a lamp! VERY helpful for two broke "kids" furnishing their own place for the first time. BUT, I did get our queen headboard and rails at a community yard sale for only $4! I'm just that good. ;)

2. Speaking of weddings, where did you honeymoon, or where would you like to honeymoon?
We went to Disney World and Sea World! And had a BLAST! Actually, my favorite wedding gift is involved here, but I had already read the questions and knew I would put this story here. My husband's parents paid for us to have backstage tours. It made our honeymoon unique and special. Learning, seeing and doing things we had never done before. Quite cool!

3. If you had to choose (you know, if anyone would actually be that cruel) or chocolate?
I would never give up chocolate! I might could for three weeks, but when that 4th week rolls around - my hormones take over. I MUST have chocolate. As for shoes - I despise shoe shopping. I have one foot that is shorter than the other. One is a size 7 (my left) and the other is a 6. VERY annoying! I usually just get a size 6.5 and call it even. But when sandal season rolls around, I often end up being two I can get an exact fit and no blisters. I live for BOGO free sales on shoes!

4. Besides your kiddos and husband (if you have those), what are you most proud about in your life?
I didn't give up on Matthew. After being told THREE times to abort - there is NO way he'll make it. Well he did. And he is about to have his kidney transplant in the next few months. What do you think now docs??

5. And, (since it's raining here...I'm just glad it's not snowing) what is your favorite thing to do on a rainy day?
Man, that's a movie day! If it is a warm rain, I let my three year old put on his Lightening McQueen rain boots and go splash. Gotta have some fun right!

Feel free to play along if you want too. Have a great weekend. Wash your hands!!

Thanks for coming over to my blog! Yes, we are stationed at Ft Benning, but luckily we do not live on post. It is OK here, nothing to exciting we usually have to go to Atlanta to entertain the kiddos!

I hope you are feeling better and your little boy is too cute!
