Wednesday Hodge Podge

It's Wednesday, hump day, or also know as day for Hodge Podge over at Joyce's.  You know the routine, grab the questions, answer them and link up with the rest of us.

1. Would you rather talk to everyone at a crowded party for a short time or have a significant conversation with two people?
I'm not one for crowds so significant conversation with two people would be just fine.

2. What objects do you remember from your parent's living room?
I can't think of anything out of the ordinary.  Typical living room, a sofa, end tables, recliner, and a tv. 
3. Do you hog the bed? Steal the covers? Snore?
No I definitely don't hog the bed.  I sleep as close to the edge as I can because I have a fan on my nightstand.  And it must be on at night.   Can't say that I steal the covers, but if I do I'm sure he pulls them back.  Scott says occasionally that I snore, but I don't think I do.  I have on occasion when extremely tired woke myself up with my own snoring but that's not often.

4. Speaking of Easter dinner....what is your favorite way to cook/eat lamb? Or does just the thought of that make you squeamish? If you're not cooking lamb what will be your entree du jour on Easter Sunday?
I have never cooked lamb.  I can remember once my Mom cooking leg of lamb.  Don't remember anything about it, but if she only cooked it once it must not have went over well.
I usually bake a ham for Easter.

5. Let's throw some politics into this week's mix-oooohhh...Do you know the whereabouts of your birth certificate and when was the last time you had to produce it to prove you're you?
Yes, I know exactly where my birth certificate is.  On the shelf in my closet in a safe box.  I can't remember the last time, maybe when I got my driver's license. 
6. As a child, how did people describe you?
quiet, and picky eater is the only two things that pop in my head at the moment.

7. What do you complain about the most?
I try not to complain, but people that really shouldn't be driving.  Like the woman I was behind Saturday that was going 15mph and passed 3 places she could have turned into after turning on her blinker.  Not to mention that when she did finally turn she came to a complete stop to do it.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
32 more school days.  I don't know who gets more excited, me or Makayla.   Also seven weeks until the due date of my first grandson.  I know who's definitely more excited about that one would be Megan.  She said last week he's already turned and dropped so she is soooo uncomfortable.  Just hope he's not late like Emily was.


  1. Oh, people who come to a complete stop before turning are a little pet peeve of mine too!

    Best wishes for a speedy delivery and healthy baby boy to love!

  2. LOL #7 is hilarious. Love it.

  3. Oh man...I could have added picky eater to my #6 as well!

  4. Bad drivers...oh my word...I know because I'm not the best driver myself and must drive people nuts. LOL

  5. My hubby sleeps with the fan on which makes me cold. He says he needs it to breathe.

    Thanks for stopping by today!

    Have a great week!

  6. Congratulations on your new grandson! So exciting.

  7. Yes, there are some people on the road who really shouldn't be! Was this lady about 80, by any chance???

    How exciting to be getting so close to having a new grandbaby to cuddle!!!

  8. Thanks for stopping by! I always enjoy HP on Wednesdays and everyone's varied answers to the questions.

    We sleep with a ceiling fan on and then I have a small box fan on too. Love fans at night even in the dead of winter. :o)

    May the rest of your week be joy filled!

  9. Bad elderly drivers just plain scare me. I feel frustrated and peeved but also just upset. I know they don't want to give up their independence but is that really worth endangering the lives of everyone else?? Pride is an interesting thing. I know I am very independent but I hope when the day comes that I graciously and wisely hand over my keys!

  10. UGH! People who have to practically stop before turning drive me NUTS!

  11. I'm not a fan of lamb. Had it once and thought it to be very gamey. I, usually, cook a ham for Easter Sunday.

  12. I agree on the driver problems. Irritates me no end. Hope the new grandbaby comes soon for her and for you!

  13. I agree with #7. ;-) I've already made my daughter promise to take away my drivers license if I start to drive like that. ha! Hope that new grandson comes soon ... but not too soon!

  14. hormonettes have to stick together!

    drivers like that bring out the worst in me.
    ahh, picky eater...i was a little bit of that, too.
    congratulations on the upcoming baby; prayers for everyone to be healthy; we had a great nephew born this past monday

  15. We have a lot in common! I answered similarly. Have a wonderful Easter!

  16. So excited about your grandson. What a blessing that will be. Speaking of people who shouldn't be driving I should have said the people who STILL talk on their phones! Hope you have a nice weekend.
