First Ever-Friend Makin Monday

I will be joining Amber for the first time ever on her "Friend Makin Monday!" So after you read mine, go click on her's and join in the fun.......
1. Do you cook every night? Most every night. If not - that mean's it's left over night!
2. What kind of laundry detergent do you use & why? Well, for the past couple of months I have been MAKING my own laundry detergent! Yep, found a blog from a lady who makes it, so that's what I've been doing. It's SUPER DUPER cheap, but I really miss the smell of "tide" and/or "gain", so I might revert back to them.
3. Do you do laundry every day or loads at a time? I usually try to do a couple loads a day, so it doesn't all pile up on me.
4. How often do you eat out per week? If I'm lucky - once on the weekend. It's not very cheap eating out with a family of 5.
5. Where do you usually eat out? Hmmm....95% of the time it's Mexican, which that could be On The Border, of El Tequila, etc.
6. What is your favorite retail store? Wal-Mart!
7. What's your favorite thing to drink? Dr. Pepper, all the way, baby!!! I try to be good sometimes and drink Diet Dr. Pepper, or water.....but they just don't compare!
8. Do you take vitamins? No, but I make sure the kiddos take theirs
9. What percentage of the household chores to you do?Do your children do chores? {Or will they, did they, etc} 100% LOL! Just kidding! I probably do 75% Cory does a lot to help out. Dylan and Hunter take turns with "dish week."
11. Do you go to church? Not as much as I should. Trying to find one closer to home, so we CAN go more often.
12. Do you have a housework schedule? Um, big fat NO!
13. Do you keep a working budget? Um, no! Probably should, but so far things have worked out really well.
14. What do you do at night as a family? We always set down at the dinner table and eat together! Even if someone isn't "eating" I make them set at the table, that is our only time together all day!
15. How do you prepare yourself for a new week? Ugh! I'm not sure! I try to get as much housework done on Sunday as possible, so I don't have to worry about it. And I USUALLY bake something specials like cookies or brownies on Sunday night.
16. What do your mornings look like? Busy, beginnin at 4:50 am and out the door by 6:40 am!
17. What time do you get up in the mornings? 4:50am
8. What time do you go to bed at night?Usually by 10:00
19. How do you manage all of the paperwork that floods into your household? {bills, school work, magazines, ads, etc}Not very well! We do have a filing cabinet, but a lot of it also gets piled up on the kitchen cabinet too! I wish I knew a better way!
20. How do you keep your household organized? {calendars, charts, etc} Who said I was organized? LOL! Just kidding! I try to stay on top of everything! Keep boy scouts, school calendars, etc handy at all times. If things are organized just right, I get readdy cranky!
