I Don't Close the Bathroom Door

Yes, it's Tuesday, but I've decided to use Mama M's 5QF as a writing prompt. Better late than never, right?

1. Do you close the bathroom door when you are home alone? No. Really? Does anyone? I don't even close it when my family is here (husband and kids). I might not close it if my mom and sis are here, too! We're all about closeness around here! Ha! I think this is an interesting topic actually. Everyone is so different!

2. You have to walk around with a word on your forehead. That word describes you. One word. What is it? Strong-willed (I know it's sort of two words, but it's hyphenated, so it's ok, right?)

3. What store do you refuse to shop at and why? Abercrombie and Fitch.

4. If you participated in arranged marriages for your child(ren), who would you choose for your child(ren)? Oh, I like this question! Here's my line up:

-Caleb would marry Alli. I wrote about her a few times. We miss their family!
-Sarah would marry Payton, Alli's brother.
-Gabriel would marry Mya. She is in his Sunday school class and she used to go to the same sitter.

I have chosen these kids because I think they are sweet, but mostly because I know the homes they come from, and I think their parents are wonderful. I know I can't really pick their spouses, but I do pray for them and the families they come from! I also hope I'm preparing my children to be the God-honoring people that they were created to be.

5. If you could pick how and when you would die, would you? Everyone wants to die old and asleep in their bed. I know I don't want to know WHEN I die. Wouldn't that drive a person crazy? Even if it was 50 years from now, I think I would over think it.

That's all I've got today! Which one of these questions was interesting to you? And I want to know how you'd answer #2!

My answer to #2 - Simple (not to be confused with simple-minded).

I laughed and cried reading #4 (and the link). Hugs to you--we miss you too and I think and pray for you often!

Oh, and for #2--that's hard. I'm going to go with faithful

#2 is the only question I cannot think of automatically.

I bet you know I totally close the door. ALL THE TIME. I even try to keep DHH out because I want him to respect privacy. But that's hard now during potty learning time. He can't learn without an example I guess.

Dan and I even turn on the faucet when we are in the restroom and the other is in the adjoining room. Its an old habit, but I really sort of like that. Its totally blowing your mind, right?

I don't know who my children will marry, but I bet they are alive right now. Isnt' that neat?? Dan talked about it the other day to Elsa, and I thought it was adorable. I hope I like my future children's in laws! It would be amazing to have a built in set of new friends during mid-late life.

I love number one! That sounds just like my 29 yr old daughter. My husband never saw me go to the bathroom until I was in a motorcycle accident 5 years ago and that was only because I couldn't do anything by myself. I totally cracked up at that one!
And as for the arranged marriages, I'd totally be in so much trouble if I dared touch the subject!

Fear not, Chrissy...I NEVER close the bathroom door! I carry on many conversations while "taking care of business"! :)

To answer #2: "hungry"
