Wednesday Hodgepodge

1.  Speaking of skating...when did you last 'skate on thin ice', 'skate over the details', 'encounter a cheapskate', or just plain skate?
I am going to go with "just plain skate"...It is winter so ice skating comes to mind.  I was talking about this on our way home from church recently.  I last ice skated when I was about 14-15 years old.  We have a small pond at my mom's home and my brothers and I used to ice skate when it froze over!  That was many, many years ago but it holds a lot of fond memories.
2. What would you say is the biggest problem of people your age?
I have absolutely no idea what that would be. The problems that I can think of expand to all ages so I just have to leave this one unanswered, sorry...

3. What's your favorite accessory? Is it something you wear every day, often, or only on special occasions?
Earrings. I have earrings in all the time. I even sleep with them in.  I wear little earrings for everyday but change them when I go out to match my outfits.

 4. January 20th is National Cheese Lover's Day. Are you a lover of cheese? What's your favorite dish made with cheese? Last thing you ate that contained some kind of cheese? 

Cheese!!!  I love cheese! I could eat cheese all day in everything.  Last thing I ate was cheese pizza for supper last night and that would probably be my favorite cheesy dish.
5. What's something guaranteed to make you roll your eyes?
6. Your favorite book series
I love reading but I don't think I have a favorite series.  I have been pondering this for a bit and can't come up with a favorite set, authors yes but not series.
7. Why did you choose your profession? 
I find this to be an interesting question. First, I am currently a wife and homeschool mom.  This is by far my favorite profession.  However, there was a time when I didn't have my kiddos and I wasn't married. I wanted to be a teacher growing up until I tutored while in high school.  Tutoring did me in and I wanted nothing to do with that profession.  My senior year of high school changed when I found that I really like the office classes I had.  I headed off to college, graduated and with my piece of expensive paper I was able to get a job in Office Technologies.  My first job was working with another lady at a veterinarian's office.  There were 3 vets working out of the same office.  One vet took care of small animals (cats/dogs) and 2 others went to farms and worked with large animals (cows/horses). This was a fun and busy job but I didn't want to continue working evenings and weekends.  My next job was at a vending company office.  It was a busy, stressful job and a pretty far drive so I found another office job at a local dentist office.  I stayed there until I had Madilynne and became a full time stay at home mom.  We now homeschool so I really did go back to my original profession of teacher!   

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I have been doing some de-cluttering and relocating of some things around.  I haven't quite hit my goal to throw away, donate or put away 35 items each day but I have been doing some cleaning up and I feel better about how things look.  I still have problem areas and will most likely always struggle with that but I am making progress. 


  1. Homeschooling is a profession for sure! And a very important one too. Sounds like we have a lot in common. Nice to meet you through the Hodgepodge :)

  2. Enjoyed your answers---I roll my eyes to politicians-didn't think of that answer--good one!
