Five Question Friday

It's time for Five Question Friday!  TGIF!

1. What is your favorite Halloween candy?
    I love candy corn.  I eat it so much it makes me sick. 

2. Do you fold your socks?
    Yes but sometimes the dryer monster steals them and i'm left with one sock or ones
     that don't match.

3. What is something that you wish you had been warned about?

    Hmmmm nothing really comes to mind at the moment.  I didn't know Old Yeller
    was shot in the movie and that kind of traumatized me growing up.

4. What is the most significant difference between you and your significant other?

    He is so much more laid back than me and has a lot more patience.  For me
    if I am waiting for something to happen I want it to happen right then.

5. What are three words you would use to describe yourself? (And, just for fun...if your significant other is around, ask him/her what 3 words they would use to describe you!!)

   Loyal, Fun, Sensitive

Here is another one!  Check this one out at What Would Jen Do:

1. What is your favorite scary movie?
    Halloween esepcially with that music. 

2.Whats the scariest movie you have ever seen?

   The original 1970s Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  Talk about torture.

3 Whats your favorite Halloween costume you had when you were little kids?

    I think I was rainbow bright one year.

4. Whats your favorite Halloween candy?

    See previous post

5. Do you hand out candy or go tricker treating? Who in your house hands out the candy?

We both hand out candy and it goes pretty quickly.  We have a ton of kids in our neighborhood.

6.Are you going to dress up this year? If yes, what are you going to be?

Not sure yet.  I might be going to a Halloween Party and dress up as Dorothy from Wizard of Oz.  We'll see.

Challenge Day 5

So I guess I'm doing two 30-day blog challenges.  It can get quite confusing so I think I am just going to stick to the 30-day challenge.  It is more up-to-date and I was so far behind on that one.  I got to Day 5 though.  No will still learn a lot about me if you care to :)

And here is my Day 5 from the Challenge at Katie's Journey.

My Sibling- My Sister

These are the same 2 girls:  My sister Heather and I.  Heather is on the left in both pics.  The first pic is circa 1991.  Don't you just love my hair and yes I still have my crimping iron. It hasn't been plugged in quite some time though.  My sister was dressed up in a surgeons aunt was head of the OR so she played dress up quite a bit with her scrubs.  Oh life was so easy back then.  Heather is 6 years younger than me.  We fought alot growing up although in this picture we look so happy holding hands.  Heather wanted to do everything I did and would sneak into my bedroom and steal my clothes.  She was the typical annoying little sister....but then we grew up.  I moved out and we got a lot closer.  And then she was my maid of honor on July 15, 2006 on my wedding day.  I didn't inherit any sister in-laws as Lee is an only child so she's all I have.  We are still pretty close.  She lives about 2 hours away now so I don't see her as often.   I think I need to plan a weekend trip soon. 

30 Day Blog Journal-Day 5 Favorite Quote

From Ah...Married Life's blog here is today's journal entry:

"We don't laugh because we're happy -- we're happy because we laugh."-William James

This is so true.  Laughing can be very therapeutic and good for your soul:)

Challenge Day 4-My Parents

Ok if my mom saw this picture she would probably kill me.  This was taken in the Magic Kingdom at Disney World a few years ago.  Whenever we go I always to have to get a picture wearing a hat and I have quite a few actually from that trip.  Anyway, my mom is the best.  I can talk to her about anything.  We talk multiple times a day and she lives no more than 5 minutes away.  We actually "work" together.  She got me the job doing medical transcription for the hospital and when I say "work" together we work for the same hospital.  We both work from home!  I constantly have to call her to listen to a word I'm having trouble with or how to do a certain report.  We both love American Idol and America's Got Talent so we always talk after the show to get each other's feedback.  She has always been supportive of everything I have done in life and has always been there for me.......  This blog has mostly been about the good stuff in my life leaving out the bad.  This isn't really a bad thing but my dad and I don't really have a good relationship.  In fact, we don't really have one at all.  We talk on holidays to say Merry Christmas or Happy Thanksgiving and our birthdays but that's pretty much it.  I had surgery a few weeks ago and he did come to see me in the hospital for that which I am grateful for.  Other than that we don't really see much of each other and we live about 20 minutes from each other.  My mom and dad divorced when I was 7 and my sister and I did the whole every other weekend thing but after that we just grew distant.  Both remarried.  I wish I had a better relationship with my dad and I have tried to call him recently but no answer.  Anyway enough of this sob story.  I have a great life and couldn't ask for a better family.

Journal Day 4- Favorite Book

Any book by Jodi Picoult

This is not my collection but i have read all of these books by Jodi Picoult.  They are great.  Her books tell the story from each character's point of view so you can see all sides of the story.  Her books make you think and you may have one side at the beginning of the book but may change it at the end.  I haven't read her latest one yet, House Rules, but it's on my list.

Day Two: Meaning Behind Your Blog Name

There really is not a meaning to the blog name.  Busby is our last name and busy was just something that was close to it....and we're busy hense the name The Busy Busbys

Day 3- Your First Love

I guess my 1st love would be my childhood dog Coco.  He was my 1st dog.  My sister and I got him as a Valentine's gift one year and he was such a part of the family.  He went through playing dress up without a complaint and ate our vegetables when our parents weren't looking:) He went to the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago.  He is greatly missed.
