Five Question Friday- 7.8.11

1. Do you think cursive writing is overrated? (Schools in Indiana have now voted to take teaching cursive writing out of their curriculum.)

I can understand the argument. Everything is printed/typed. But, oh, I really think it is something that should be taught. Sheesh, I took a handwriting course in college! You know I love my husband, right? His handwriting leaves a lot to be desired. If we our romance had developed through hand-written love letters, it would have suffocated. It started through instant messaging each other. So, I guess it is true that times are changing. But I loved reading my grandpatents' love letters and seeing their remarkable handwriting. Everything about it was so beautiful.

2. Do you still use a pocket calendar or notepad or do you keep your info on your smart phone?

I may support cursive handwriting, but I do embrace technology. This phone is my everything.

3. What 3 things would you save if your house was burning down? (family & pets are already safe)

Laptop, camera, dvd's of the girls' births.

4. Country Mouse or City Mouse, err Person?

I was just thinking last night how fun and convenient city living is, but I think I'm a small town girl at heart.

5. If you could pick ANY reality show to go on, which would you pick?

What Not To Wear! Please nominate me!

It will be a sad day when cursive disappears. It's truly becoming a lost art.
