A Question A Day

Best. Gift. Ever.
Last year for Christmas, a great friend of mine gave me one of the best gifts ever: a Five Year Question A Day journal. I love it so much. It keeps me accountable to where I'm at least writing something every day.
With year one just about complete, I thought it'd be fun to randomly pick a few days of questions and answers. I tried to be as honest as possible which, let's face it, wasn't always so happy or exciting. And since this is entirely random, it can also be quite boring.

January 28

A: Cozy. Warm. Neat. Happy

February 18
Q: What's the most expensive thing you're wearing right now?
A: My Danskos

Q: What would you like to ask your mother?
A: How can I make my chicken Romano as good as yours?

A: An old-fashioned car horn

A: My jeans don't fit

October 22

November 14
Q: What do you need to vent about?
A: How hard it is to be a good employee AND a good mom without pissing anyone off

December 17
Q: If you had to move to a new city, where would you move?
A: That's not even funny right now
