Friday Fiver

I know this is not Friday, but let's just say today is Friday B.

1. Favorite Pastry? Do I have to pick just one? I love pastry, mostly doughnuts. Right now my favorite is the little chocolate covered doughnuts you get at Walmart. They come in that plastic box, and I always dig in the very back for one that has an expiration date as far from today as possible.

2. How do you like to waste time? Re-reading old books. They are like comfort food: familiar, tasty, no surprises, nothing I don't like, and they require no thinking.

3. How would you describe your complexion? Aging. At least that's what they told me when I had a facial done last spring.

4. What do you hang on to that you really should get rid of? My homeschooling expectations of my kids. And actually, I'm doing better on that. I'm finally realizing that they are not scholars, or academic material. They are CREATIVE. And here's the kicker: IT'S OKAY. (the shouting is for me, not you... *smile, sigh* ... because sometimes I forget.)

5. What is the last thing that made you hurt? Thursday I made a quick, light meal that included salsa and tortilla chips. Somebody at the table, whose opinion I care about, piled chips on the plate, dumped salsa over it, and said, "Where's the rest of it?" Meaning, for taco salad-- where's the meat, and cheese, and lettuce, etc? For some reason that hurt.
