My Real Life

Five Question Friday

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 8:39 am

1. Who drives when your family is together, you or your spouse?


My car is the one that is big enough for all 6 of us, and even though it used to be his car, Real Man likes me to drive it when we are all going somewhere together.


Because I handle that ridiculous machine like it’s a little tiny sports car and I’m the only one who can swiftly and easily maneuver it back into the garage.

Like a boss.


2. Are you an introvert or extrovert?

I am a total introvert who has the ability to pretend to be an extrovert when needed.

However, I’m an introvert who could completely live Sandra Bullock’s life in “The Net.”

Hopefully without the murder and danger.

Well, no…I guess if I was going to live like Sandra Bullock in “The Net” I’d need a little danger in my life to spice it up, so scratch the last part.

Except for the murder.

Well, maybe.  Definitely not the murder.

3. Are you married to an introvert or extrovert?

I am married to someone who is even more of an introvert than I am.

We have to remind ourselves to go out, sometimes, because we might never leave the house otherwise.

It’s probably hurt us, because people know that we are introverts, so they don’t invite us anywhere, even though we would totally go.

So, it’s a vicious cycle.


4. What’s your favorite type of social media?

I’m a fan of Facebook.

I really am.

I feel like I can get all of my information about people, the world, celebrities, anything, from Facebook.

I need to double-check the important stuff against actual news sources (notice that I didn’t say “valid” news sources, because I don’t think that such things exist anymore), but I love the pictures and just knowing what people are doing, because people are doing some pretty great stuff.

5. What’s your favorite way to “recharge”?

I feel like most things that I do to relax still drains my batteries, just because they continue to be physical activities.

Playing outside with the kids, walks, exercise, etc.

However, reading definitely recharges me.

The only problem with reading is that I have to be careful when I start a book because I have a very difficult time doing anything else until the book is done.

But when it is done, aside from the disappointment that the story is over, I feel completely recharged emotionally, creatively, and physically.

I am ready to write, to run, to play, to do whatever because I’ve been able to fill up my soul with words, and I realize how utterly corny that sounds, but I just love to read and it works for me.
