For the summer, Kendra is back with her Answer Me This link up. Yay!
Here are her questions, and my answers:
1. Any big plans for the summer?
We’re putting our house on the market, and building a new house. That’s pretty big.
Also, I’m going to Edel, with Super Friend! That’s definitely big.
And we’re going to a wedding at the beginning of August, where I will be singing many songs for the reception afterward, along with the band that consists of my husband, his brother, two of his cousins, and a family friend. Big.
Other than that, we’re at the Farm for the rest of this week, we’ll be going to the pool a lot, the girls have a few weeks of YMCA camp, and we’ll be soaking in the gloriousness of summer in Wisconsin.
2. What is the strangest thing you believed as a child?
Well, I think I’ve mentioned before that I had an imaginary friend named Banny. At some point in my childhood, I guess I no longer felt the need to have Banny around. My explanation for his departure was that I accidentally killed him by jumping on my bed without realizing he was taking a nap between my mattress and box spring (which was where he slept?). You’d think this would have been traumatic for me, but it wasn’t at all. Perhaps I should be disturbed by that, but I’m not at all.
3. What is your favorite amusement park ride? (can be a specific one at a specific park or just a type of ride)
When I was a kid, I used to go to an amusement park called Boblo Island.
They had a ferris-wheel-type ride there that I don’t remember the name of. As I recall, it started out flat on the ground and you got into these little cars that started to rotate around the wheel and rise up off the ground. It went very fast, and in addition to that, there was a steering wheel inside the car that you could turn as fast as you wanted to make your individual car spin around. It was my favorite ever.
Beyond that, I always like pretty much all roller coasters and fast rides.
4. What’s on your summer reading list?
Surprisingly, I don’t actually have a summer reading list this year. Right now I’m finishing Confessions by St. Augustine.
After that, I think I’ll read Teaching in Your Tiara: A Homeschooling Book for the Rest of Us and A Dark Lure, which are on my Kindle waiting to be read (the latter of those was a free download). I also have a lot of other books at home that I want to read, like 10 Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child, St. Rita of Cascia, The Heart of Motherhood: Finding Holiness in the Catholic Home, and Therese, Faustina, and Bernadette: Three Saints Who Challenged my Faith, Gave Me Hope, and Taught Me How to Love
5. Have you ever fallen asleep in public?
Yes, on a plane. I don’t think anywhere else.
6. What is your favorite smell?
New baby. And a very close second is newly baptized baby/chrism oil.
That’s it for this week.
