Wednesday Hodgepodge - 8/10

1. If you could work for any one government agency which would you choose and why?

     I love the show Covert Affairs, so my first thought is CIA.  But I'm terrible at keeping big secrets, so that's probably out.  My next option would be to work for the Smithsonian in the Museum of American History so I could see all the amazing pieces of history up close and personal!  I know, I'm such a history nerd.

2. How difficult is it for you to forgive someone who refuses to apologize?

    It's hard.  But I've come to learn that forgiveness isn't really about them.  It's about you.  Even if they don't apologize, holding onto anger and bitterness isn't good for you.  I don't think you necesarily need an apology to forgive someone.

3. What is your favorite meatless supper?

     I hate dealing with raw meat, so there are many a meatless suppers in this house.  My favorite is probably pasta with veggies and Italian dressing, sort of like a pasta salad.  (Though lately supper has often been a bowl of popcorn!)

4. Wednesday August 10th is National Lazy Day...will you be celebrating? If so, tell us how so we can be lazy too.

     I have been blissfully lazy most of the summer, but I will spend Lazy Day getting my classroom ready for kids.  I would suggest a bunch of movies, a comfy couch, and plenty of easy finger foods and desserts.

5. As a child did you have any special back to school traditions and if so, what were they? If you're a parent did you carry on those traditions with your own children?

     My parents are both teachers, so there were very few back to school traditions at my house.  Everyone was too busy getting ready for another school year.  I did always like picking out my school supplies, though.  Still do, in fact.

6. Write a summer tongue twister.

      Joyce, never have I wanted to throw a fit more than when I was trying to answer this question!  Tongue twisters make me crazy!  Here's the best I could come up with:

       Suzie spends summer sunning in the South.

7. Would you be interested in observing a surgery or do you turn away when the nurse brings out the needle?

     I am the biggest baby ever.  When they are taking my blood, they use a butterfly needle.  I almost passed out in high school watching other people give blood.  While my siblings are in the health field, I was not meant for that!  They can have all the blood and guts!

8. I can't believe that the last day of summer vacation is here already!  It's been fun, but entirely too short.  I am ready to see my kids, though!  I do miss them over the summer.  (Ssshh!  Don't tell!  It would ruin my reputation!  :)


  1. You are not alone. I always ask for a butterfly needle too. They just hurt less!

    I have been having a (mostly) lazy summer myself :) It's going to be extremely hard to get back into a "school" routine!

  2. Popcorn for dinner... wow, now I don't feel too bad about my bowl of cereal! hee hee hee.

    I haven't even had summer vacation yet, it happens the last week of August! Worked all summer because I love the air conditioning. At home I have a fan that blows hot air on me .... sad, so sad!

  3. I had popcorn for dinner last night : ) I thought about saying The Smithsonian...I love to visit and I'm sure it would be fun to see behind the scenes.

    Happy Back to School! My youngest daughter begins her student teaching assignment today-no kids yet but she'll meet her teacher and help with the classroom stuff before kids come next week. She's super excited!
