Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. When were you last 'on a mountaintop'?  You may answer in the literal or figurative sense.
Literal-last year-too scary for me.  Charlie decided to take a scenic route-NEVER, NEVER  AGAIN.  I swear I will get out and walk the next time.
Figurative sense-I am drowning in paperwork!

2.  Do you establish and maintain a strict budget in your household?  What is one piece of financial advice you would offer someone just starting out on their own? 

Maintain a budget-yeah, but not a strict one.  I have always tried to live within my means.  I will use credit card but shortly right after-deduct the amount-never paying payments.  A piece of advice: save for a rainy day because you never know what expenses might come up unexpectedly, and: don't live a champagne life on a beer income!

3.  Cherries-yay or nay?  Cherry pie, cherry cola, black forest cake, or a scoop ofBen and Jerry's Cherries Garcia...pick one. 

Easy one for me-NONE!  I can't stand cheeries!

4.  Should you ever discuss religion or politics with people you don't know? 
Personally, I don't reason being-we all have our opinion because we are all entitled to one.

5.  When you take a road trip do you prefer to be the driver or the passenger?  Where were you headed on your last road trip? 

Both-this doesn't make the trip seem so long.  When I am the passenger, I read and eat!  Last weekend I headed to Harrisonburg, Virginia-for the weekend.  I need to write a post about this-an interesting purchase at Parks-Belk-only me.

6. If we peeked inside your closet, what color would we say is most prevalent?

Mostly browns, blacks, and orange.  I don't know about you but I am ready for the spring colors-bright pinks, greens, and yellows.

7. Who's your favorite senior citizen and why are they special?
Don't really hang out with the older generation-LOL!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
It has been a very busy couple of weeks around here.  I feel like I am in a whirl wind.  Yesterday, I found out our health insurance is going up 18.4%-:(


  1. Everybody's health insurance is going up. Taxes too. Welcome to 2013-ugh! We passed Harrisonburg driving to/from you remember back when we were in college there used to be a buffalo farm on the side of 81 close to Harrisonburg? I used to love passing that on my way home for breaks.

  2. That's a huge increase on your insurance, but I think we're all right there with you. It's the pits! I'm not a fan of cherries, either! BLECH!

  3. I feel your pain with the insurance increase! We had two last year alone, and are expecting a third any time :(

  4. I do like the mountains but I have been on some scary roads on the edge of a cliff that I could do without! Then I'll be your favorite senior :) I'm afraid that a lot of insurance is going to be raised forcing people to go with the Obama plan at some point.

  5. Browns, blacks, and orange...I can see this in my mind, and I LIKE the combination just reading the colors. Oh, and where was the 'scenic trip' where you'd get out and walk next time?
