Wednesday Hodgepodge

I've missed so much time not blogging I get overwhelmed when I think about what I should blog about.  So I guess this is one of the easier ways to ease back into the habit.  Not to mention a great way to get to know fellow bloggers better.  So to join Joyce and the others for Wednesday Hodgepodge just hop on over.

1. A new Miss America was crowned on Saturday night-did you watch? If you were a contestant what would your talent be?
No I didn't watch.  Can't remember the last time I have watched one.  I have talents, but none that you ever see on Miss America.

2. Do you have houseplants? Real or fake?
I don't have either one.  Over the years the houseplants that I have had has died.  Either I over or underwater them.  So I finally just gave up on trying.
3. When you were in school did you speak up or were you more of the hide your face, avoid eye contact, and pray the teacher didn't call on you type of student?
I was definetly a hide your face, avoid eye contact, and pray the teacher didn't call on me type of student.  But since I have taught children in Sunday School and in a daycare, but never adults.  There is no way I could get up in front of adults and speak at all.
4. Next Monday marks the Chinese New Year...what do you order when someone suggests Chinese food?
I always get confused between chinese and japanese.  All I know is I love me some Nikko's shrimp and rice, no veggies.
5. How would you define a miracle? What would it take for you to consider something a miracle?
A miracle is when there seems to be no hope and God steps in and shows us what He can do with the situation.  Anything that man can't do that only God can perform a miracle. 
6. What's your favorite Disney song? If you're stuck you'll find a list here.

Lyrics to When You Wish Apon A Star:

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star

As dreamers do
Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

7. I should have _____________ yesterday.
Can't think of anything I didn't finish yesterday.  Parts of the day was crappy but overall it was pretty good for the most part.  Can't keep letting small things get to me.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I am trying really hard to be more patient with some people, and more thankful everyday for what I have. 


  1. Good to have you back! I struggle with #8 a lot too. Hope your week's good.

  2. It's nice to see you back : ) I think most of us struggle with those same things you mention in #8. We're a work in progress!

  3. Watching Miss America...I never miss it! I was so hoping Miss Oklahoma would go away with the win...she was so tiny!

  4. Welcome back! You're not alone with your struggles (#8). Like Joyce said, we're a work in progress ... and I'm thankful for that! ;-)

  5. Happy to see you back on blogger..hope all is going well in your life!

  6. Welcome back! I've missed you.

    Some of our answers today were very similar. Apparently we have a few things in common!

    I found it interesting that you and I were both at Guido Gardens on the same evening. Small world, huh?

    Hope you'll continue posting!

  7. Thena... thanks for stopping by the blog and leaving a comment for Lisa's book. It's always fun to hear from new voices in the blogosphere! As for what I should have done yesterday, it's a no brainer. I should have walked my 10,000 steps. I felt sluggish all day. I've done better today.

    And for the record, I'm with you on house plants. No need to bother over here. I'd only kill them.



I love reading your comments, and especially responding back to them. So please leave your email address instead of a no-reply format.
