I'm joining in on the fun with Kendra at Catholic All Year for this weekly'll soon see that #5 turns into a list of my favorite churches around the world...

1. Do you have a smart phone?

No.  I did, but got rid of it to save money each month.

2. Which is your favorite meal of the day?

Linner, which is like brunch, but a combination of lunch and dinner, instead of breakfast and lunch.  It's the best of yummy dinner food, but at an earlier, closer-to-lunch time.  Gosh, it sounds like I'm eighty and heading out for my early bird special at the local cafeteria...

3. Shower or bath?

Shower.  Baths annoy me because they take too long and I could be doing something else more productive.  I needed to take a few baths in Epsom Salts while I was pregnant to help with swelling (from not drinking enough water and being on my feet all day, which I couldn't seem to avoid as a second-grade teacher) and I couldn't stand it.  I'd be shouting out to G every few minutes, "Has it been long enough?  Can I come out yet?"

Then, when my time was finally up, I'd take a shower.

4. Think of a person you love. How many days have you been in love with that person? (Don't worry, this site will do the math for you.)

1331 - a palindrome!  How cool is that?

5. What's the best church you've ever been inside?

Gosh, I love so many, it would be hard to pick just one.  Churches are some of my favorite places to explore on trips.  Maybe I'll do a top 20...
