New Year, New Hodgepodge

1. What three words would you use to describe 2010?

      Busy, Bloggy, and Blessed

2. If fear were not an issue what is something you'd like to try?

    Ziplining.  I think it would be so much fun!  (That kind of thing completely terrifies me though!)

3. What do you add to your coffee or tea?

      I don't drink coffee, but I have to have sugar in my tea!

4. What historical sporting event would you like to witness?

      Hmmm....I would have loved to see just about any Summer Olympics.  How cool would it be to actually see Jesse Owens run?  There are so many great moments in sports at those events.  Plus, I'm a huge track and field fan!

5. What is one piece of advice you would like to give your sixteen year old self?

     I don't know that I can keep it to one piece.  First piece would be to lighten up and not worry so much about what other people think about me.  The second piece would be, to borrow from Brad Paisley, 'Have no fear, these are no where near the best days of your life. '

6. Are you a planner or do you prefer to fly by the seat of your pants?

    I'm somewhere in the middle.  I like to have a plan, but I am more than willing to change it up if something interesting comes along.  When we vacation, I am always the one with the itinerary, but I like to keep it loose and add things as we go.

7. What is one thing you are looking forward to in 2011?

     I really can't keep this to one thing!  Vacation 2011, Meeting T's baby girl (that's right, she told us this weekend!), all of the weddings (especially, Sheena and Ronnie's).  And those are just the things I know about!  This year is still very new and that's exciting!

8. Insert your own random thought here.

     Coming back to work after Christmas break is almost harder than coming back from summer vacation.


  1. I totally agree with #8. I need a snow day!

  2. Just stopping by from Joyce's hop. It's nice to "meet" you. I didn't think about ziplining, but I'd like to try that, too.
    So you teach middle school...your life is never dull, is it? LOL...and yes, I know what you mean about going back to school after Christmas break--it's tough! I'm glad I'm retired :)

  3.! That's sounds like terrifying fun! I think it's good your "somewhere in the middle"...most of us are striving for balance on that question! Smiles to you today!

  4. I love your 3 words and you're right zip lining would be so fun!!

  5. Your last answer sounds so much like my friend. She teaches middle school and is always doing "the snow dance", no matter that she just had several days off for spring or Christmas break.

  6. Oh, I think a zipline would be super fun. Great quote from Brad Paisley. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  7. I don't love heights but I think I'd try ziplining...and I know if I went with my family they'd make me : )

  8. i think shorter vacations are always harder to come back from. i am dreading going back to school right now - i just want to enjoy home for a little longer :)
