Answer Me This - Pools, Poems and Pies

1. What do you still want to do this summer?

Summers are currently overrated in the Kibbe house because well you know the whole our papa is a pool man issue. Nothing changes too much with the girls schedules in that they go to the same school - just that it is much less structured and they are not divided by age. 

Moving on from my whininess. I would like to go back to Jibbes pool and swim one more time. Yes we have only swam ONCE this entire summer. 

Also, I must order R's book bag for 2 yr old class. 

2. What's your favorite kind of pie?

Derby pie. Mainly because it has chocolate in it and I am so addicted to chocolate it is not funny. Fortunately my sister in law only makes this around Thanksgiving  

3. How much sleep do you need each day? How much do you get?

I need and get about 6-8 hours a night. I WISH I could sleep less and still be a productive functioning human being - but I cannot. Well when I'm pregnant I don't sleep as much and then I'm exhausted but then I guess I can justify being exhausted on the pregnancy and not on the lack of sleep. 

4. Do you prefer to swim in a pool, lake, river, or ocean?

E in the ocean last year

Pool. Pool. Pool. I like being able to see the bottom and know nothing creepy is in the water. I can handle the ocean but I HATE when a piece of seaweed or other creepy, slimy object brushes my leg. 

Probably my favorite pic from The Beach Trip 2013

5. Do you know any poems by heart?

No. I know a bunch-o kids books by heart. Does that count? Goodnight Moon (English and Spanish), The Foot Book, etc etc etc. For the record if I were to memorize a poem it would be Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken:

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. 

Pretty much sums up my life.

6.  Do you use the public library?

No and I am slightly embarrassed by it but I'll move on.
