Friday Feast( 3/9/07)

Been seeing this Friday feast meme so I thought since I seem to be filling my week full of memes I would give it a try this week. Don't forget today is the last day of The Ultimate Blog Party, Come Join my party just click here

What is your usual bedtime? Do you like that, or would you rather it be different?
I normally go to bed about 1am, If I go to bed at 1am I do great, but if i stay up till 2am I'm tired when the alarm goes off in the morning. I'm happy with my bedtime. It gives me a few hours of alone time to blog and watch the tv shows I taped after everyone is in bed and sleeping.

When it comes to advice, do you give more or receive more?
I think i would say it's about even. While online chatting with cyber friends I find myself giving alot of advices, though I don't think of it that way. I think of it as just sharing what works for me or what has worked for me when it comes to the kids and such. But around my grandma, I'm always receiving advice ;)

Describe a memorable meal you've had.

A memorable meal I have had just recently was a few weekends ago, DH and I packed up the kids and we took a trip about 2 hours south of us. We headed out that way because there is a wonderful place out there we like to eat, really yummy food. It was a late meal(as we had hit the mall 1st and well my girls are like there mom and they LOVE to shop, read try everything on for the fun of it LOL) Even though it was late and the kids were getting tired and we had to wait an hour(with a crabby baby) once we sat around the table and started talking and laughing and having a good time with each other, I just took a mental picture and though Now this is what it is all about..
A memorable meal from way back when.. I honestly don't even know when it was or how old i was maybe between 9 to 11 years old I think.. My mom and dad had packed up the car and took us out to eat.. I do recall the restaurant was the Red Barn(do you all remember those?) I don't know what we ate or what we talked about, just remember having a blast.. BUT my poor dad, he wasn't having the best of meals.. you see 1st my brother who is 5 years younger then me was sitting next to my dad and my brother reached for something and spilled his pop all over my dad. We got that all cleaned up and our food came we were sitting there eating and my sister who is 2 years younger, she was sitting across from my dad and she reached for her pop and spilled it all over my dad LOL. At this point we are all handing him our napkins and I knock over my drink.. well guess where it landed??? you got it right in my dads lap.. Its a darn good thing my dad wasn't one of those men with a short temper, because my mom leaned over trying to stop the flow of pop and she spilled her drink also. LOL Yes.. that is one meal I'll never forget.

Main Course
Name a work of fiction that affected the way you think about something.

HUMM.. can't really think of anything.. Maybe Gone with the Wind. Do they count that as Fiction?? You all wouldn't know this but one of my kids got there name from Gone with the Wind.
What is your favorite type of fruit juice?

Grape.. but I don't drink it that often the one I drink the most of would be Orange and I have apple at the house for the kids.

The story about your dad is hilarious. That seriously would have had a different ending in our family. You are fortunate to have had a patient dad! Good stuff!
