Wednesday Hodge Podge

Well it's Wednesday so most of us know it's time for Wednesday Hodge Podge.  So jump over to Joyce's and join in.

1. April rolls in at the end of this week and in celebration of that infamous date (April 1st) answer this
question-What is something foolish you've done?
The only thing I can think of at the moment, is Makayla and I met Megan and Emily at Chick-Fil-A a while back.  When Megan saw me she asked me if I knew that I had my shirt on wrong side out.  I said no and went right then to the bathroom and fixed it.  Not really sure if anyone else noticed, didn't see anybody laughing other than my daughters.

2. With April comes Easter and that classic edible treat known as tell me...what's your favorite way to fix/eat chicken? That wasn't what you were expecting, was it? I 'fooled' you. teehee.
Wow!  I almost answered it that I don't eat Peeps.  But chicken, would have to be chicken and dumplings.  Yum!!!

3. What's the best museum you've ever visited? Or your favorite? Or the one you'd most like to visit?
Not really sure.  Ony one I can think of that I have been to is the Smithsonian Institute and that was in the late 1970's.  Would love to go back to Washington DC and take my kids.
4. You know what they say about April showers...what's your preference-a shower or a bath?
A shower.

5. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder"...fact or fiction? Why?
True, as the weather gets warmer Scott travels more.  That's what happens when your a commercial heating and air technician.  And it gets hard spending only two days a week with him,  so I cherish the time we have together even more.

6. What's your favorite product made/grown in your home state/province?
Peanuts is the first one that comes to mind.  We even have a peanut festival in August.

7. What is going on in the world today that affects you the most?
The economy.  Gas, groceries, utilities, and the dreaded taxes.  I wonder sometimes how much more can of an increase can the average family stand.   Most don't like to admit it but we live paycheck to paycheck and just pray no emergency comes up.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Reference to #6, must be why I'm having a hard time going to sleep tonight.  lol


  1. I so relate to #8. Just when I get used to him traveling and sleep better, he returns and disrupts my sleep again. I go through this routine every time he travels. Thanks for the reminder, lol.

  2. Try to get some rest, I know its hard I'm married to a cop who works 3rd shift!!

  3. I'm with you on #7! It's craziness.

  4. So true on the economy. It is just utterly ridiculous how prices are being driven sky high! Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  5. I am with you on the economy. We live paycheck to paycheck-Well, my husband retried (sold business) to help put our daughters through college-one in pharmacy school (YEP--a big chunk of our pay) and the other is a junior in college. I worry about what the future holds for them.

  6. I am so with you on the tax increases...Crazy! I especially worry about my girls and what sort of economy they'll be living with in a few years.

    Chicken and dumplings! Yum! I don't make them but if we travel south and make a Cracker Barrel stop I always order them. So good!

    Enjoy your day~

  7. I totally agree with the economy answer. We are definitely paycheck to paycheck.

    Chicken and dumplings...mmmmmm. I think I know what to make for dinner!

  8. It looks like we are all in the same boat with the economy :( I feel especially bad for those on fixed incomes (we'll be there soon) or those raising children.

    I didn't think about peanuts! Good answer!

  9. I understand about living paycheck to paycheck.
    That's how we live, praying an emergency doesn't happen.
    This is the first year we actually have to pay income taxes. It's going to take all our savings and then some.

  10. Oh man...chicken and dumplings...I forgot about that tasty dish!! Cracker Barrel makes the best too!!!

  11. What's the best museum I've ever visited? Or the one you'd most like to visit?

    I would like to visit the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles :-)

  12. I would love to go to DC to see those musuems and all the other wonderful things there. Peanuts, that is so cool! Yes the economy is so bad and I don't see any hope in the near future for a change.

  13. Oooo...I like the wrong side out joke...I just might use that one! Thanks!!
