I feel this way------"Weekends are a bit like rainbows; they look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them." ~John Shirley  Weekends go by so dang fast.  I feel like I wish my life away by wishing for it to be Friday when it is only Sunday!!!!!!!
Except for today the weather was nice.  Friday was great---daughter #1 came home for spring break.  She is totally exhausted from studying-boy I remember those days of study, study, and study.  She surprised me by stopping by my classroom to tell me she was home. I thought now we can talk when I get home.  She had other plans of course, time to catch up with some other friends and trip to Charlottesville on Saturday. :(
So my husband and I went Saturday to Kentucky to watch daughter #2 play basketball.  Yep the same place we went last year and I ordered a chicken sandwich at KFC and they told me they did not have any--Imagine that!!!!!  The weather was nice and I saw.......

I thought ah hem ------do I have to go…
Wednesday's Hodgepodge

1. Did you know there is a National Day pretty much everything in the universe? February 23 happens to be National Inconvenience Yourself Day...when was the last time you were inconvenienced?
Actually......the last time was two years ago.  I went to watch my daughter play basketball in Kentucky.  Before the game started, my husband and I went to Kentucky Fried Chicken to grab a quick bite to eat.  I ordered a chicken sandwich and You might not believe this but it is the TRUTH---the person responded we "don't have a chicken sandwich"---what????? go figure-so we left and went to the trusty McDonald's.  Standing in line at McDonald's, I was still in shock about my order at KFC-and trying to decided which  value meal would be healthy, when the lady said (YES    I was next in line-I mean right there at the counter) "May I help you?" a bunch of teenagers jumped right in front of me and ordered.  I honestly couldn't believe it! …

1. Your favorite chocolate treat?
My favorite chocolate treat would have to be hot fudge cake with vanilla beam ice-cream!!!  Yum Yum

2. What more than anything else makes you feel loved?
A hug --when I have had a horrible, terrible, bad day-a hug from my daughters or step-grandson.  Sometimes we all have bad days and when they wrap their arms around me and say "I love you"-oh what a feeling. 

3. Cherries or blueberries?
Blueberries!!!!!!!!!  I do not like cherries. 

4. What is the one trait you most want the leader of your country to posess?
Only one trait---Honesty (sincerity and integrity-these are synonyms in my world) and the power to listen-which have the letters s-i-l-e-n-t in the word--so don't tell others what to do and not listen to what others have to say.  So instead of one trait, I wrote two.

5. Are you a saver or a spender?
Move of a saver or shall I say hider.  I hide money and then forget where I …

Another snow day--day #18.  What a crazy winter we have had.  Of course I had to go to school and do lessons plans because inservice day tomorrow.  Gosh is teaching the only profession when you are absent you have to make plans for??????
The sun is out and it looks much warmer than it feels. But according to our weather man-temps for weekend are going to be extremely nice!!!!  Yeah and I sure hope he is right like he has been all winter.
I question this---why do people blame others for his/her shortcomings?

I think I am going to go shopping (Pandora here I come) and then watch my daughter play basketball.  Can;t wait till Saturday to see my other daughter!!!!!!!

Wednesday's Hodgepodge

1.  What is more important doing what you love-or loving what you do?
Loving what you do is more important to me.

2. Do you like bleu cheese?

Absolutely!!!!!!  especially with celery

3. What is the most difficult emotion for you to handle?

I have two---grief and fear.  Grieving the lost of a love one is difficult to handle.  Grief is an emotion that can 'pop up' out of no where when something triggers it-a song, a saying, even a t.v. show.
Fear is difficult for me, also or is more 'worry'.  I worry because of fear-especially when my family is not with me-in my house!!

4. Fresh flowers or a box of chocolate?

Definitely fresh flowers-I can't get enough of them!!!!  Flowers just make all my problems go away-just one sweet smell and....POOF!!!  I feel better.  I love chocolate, but can't eat just one piece-and afterwards I feel sick!!!!  So flowers don't make me feel bloated!!!

5. What&#…

1. Would you rather be seen as a person who did their duty or forged their own path?
Probably both to some extent.  I do what is my responsibility to do-or I try to do what is expected because it is the right thing to do.....But---I do like to forge my own path-follow my dreams.......who knows....

2. This week's Wednesday Hodgepodge happens to fall on Groundhog's Day. In keeping with that theme, if you could have a do-over of any one day out of the last seven, which day would it be and why. If you haven't seen the movie Groundhog Day this question will make absolutely no sense but that's can answer anyway.
Well I haven't seen the movie, but I would definitely do over last Saturday.  My daughter plays basketball and I make a 'fool' out of myself at her ballgames.  I cannot sit still and not yell, I mean I REALLY YELL!!!!
I would do this day over and eat many, many suckers (blow-pops) to keep my mouth shut--but honestly …
