Random 5 Friday

My husband and I have stayed motivated to eating healthy and I'm so proud of us!
By now I usually find some odd justification to run to Wendy's.

I've tested to be a 911 dispatcher, and the other day I went in to observe the dispatchers.
It was fun to listen to the calls.  I ended up crying over a call from a young women
who just had a baby and she'd been bleeding pretty bad that day.
Maybe being a 911 dispatcher will be harder than I think. 
I don't have the job yet, but I'm hopeful!

I often prefer the company of animals rather than people.
My pets are so sweet. 

My husband and I have been watching Magnum P.I. on Netflix.
I shouldn't admit this, but we've had a good laugh at some of the filming and outfits.
Mostly, we've enjoyed the episodes. We're nerds. 

I learned how to knit and crochet last November.  
I'm crocheting my first blanket for my sister's birthday.
Crochet is like meditation and a lot of work at the same time.
I'm loving it!

The doodle drawing I drew of us when we were dating.  It's clear who is the better artist.

I hope you've all had a wonderful week!
Have a fantastic weekend!


Linking with A Rural Journal's Random 5 Friday HERE!


  1. I might have been interested in the 911 dispatcher position in a past life -- now it would stress me out too much. But I wish you well in getting the job!

    Cute doodles~

  2. Hello, I am visiting from Nancy's blog. Good luck with the job prospect! I think being a 911 dispatcher job would be very rewarding, though stressful. I love animals, too, and love being in their company. Good for you for staying on track with the healthy eating!

  3. I am glad there are people that are good at being a dispatcher...I don't think I would be too good. I think I would panic.

    Great for you guys if you are eating healthy...I wish we did.

  4. I try to eat healthy ... it doesn't last too long :-(
    Good luck on the dispatcher job ... keep us posted!
    I love to knit/crochet ... and I agree, it is very therapeutic.
    Have a great weekend!

  5. I would absolutely suck at being a 911 dispatcher... I'm too emotional. Good luck with the job, though. I know you will do great.

  6. Oh I don't think I could be a dispatcher...I'm too emotional. Cute doodles...
