5QF and a strange night...

Oh my gosh, what a night...Last night Sean went to do some dog training, Natalee and I were having a girls night. We had dinner and then went to get her hair cut (it's so much better). We went to Target and then came home. Natalee loves to take a bath, so I was running her bath water and took her clothes off. She had a welt the size of a baseball on her left butt cheek and about 6-7 dime sized ones on her right (none had been there about an hour and a half before). I took a picture and sent them to my mom, she immediately called and told me to take her in. I called the doctor and they got me an appointment in about 30 minutes. By the time we got there, both sides were completely covered in giant welts, each one about 6" in diameter. Turns out they were some sort of hives. The doctor said they were "pretty exceptional hives" and that she couldn't belive Natalee wasn't completely hysterical (she wasn't phased at all). We gave her a dose of benadryl, she was out cold and all the welts are gone this morning... bizarre.

Anyway... lets get on to the fun stuff:

1. Are you a neat sleeper or a messy sleeper?

Um, what the heck is a neat sleeper? Do I toss and turn? Well, lately I do. I don't care if my sleep is neat or messy at this point... I just want some sleep. And did you ever  notice that when you can't sleep all night, you can fall into complete deep sleep in the 5 minutes between snooze alarms?
2. Fill in the blank. I wish I was more ________________.
Patient. Creative. Wealthy... the list goes on, but I'm pretty happy with what I got.

3. What is something that you wish you had been warned about?
How about a warning I wish I had listened to? Credit cards... oy, they can bite you. I learned the hard way, but I got them all taken care of, finally.

4. What was the best thing you ever found at a garage sale/flea market?
I'm not a garage sale/flea market kinda girl... but Sean is into them. He came home one day with a brand new $240 Filson Jacket and a $70 Filson vest. They were asking $5, he gave them $10 cause he felt bad. I once bought a blender at a garage sale, but it was just to grind up dog food when we were weaning the puppies and I wasn't about to put that into my blender.

5. If you could have any meal brought to you right now, what would it be?
Right now, would be anything that didn't make me want to throw up... but in general, anything with lots of hot, melty cheese on it, usually involving some sort of pasta. Yum!
