Wednesday hodgepodge

1. What question do you often ask yourself?

Why did I say 'Yes' to so many things.  I am okay at first but as time goes by I question myself more and more.

2. Do you grow roses? What's your favorite color of rose? Ever been given a dozen roses? Where was the prettiest rose or rose garden you remember seeing?

I don't grow roses.  My favorite color would be yellow roses.  Yes, I have been given a dozen of roses -a long time ago while in college.

3. Do you read the freshness dates on grocery store products? Will you use eggs past their 'use by' date? Take medication that's expired? Buy a dented can?

Definitely read the freshness date on store products and I never buy a dented can. Now a days it does take me longer to grocery shop because of reading all the labels!  I will only use eggs that are only a few days out of date-no longer use if the date is more than a week.
Medication on the other hand, I will use if expired for a month or longer.  Now having …

1. It's National Bike you own a bicycle? When did you last ride a bike? 

Nope, I don't own a bicycle.  I rode daughter's bike a couple of years ago.

2. What's something you learned in school that wasn't part of the curriculum?

RESPECT!! -the longer I teach the more I see of students not having any respect not only for teachers but lack of respect for their peers.

3. What's a food you've never tried, but want to try? What's a food you've tried and will never try again?

Can't think of a food I want to try.  I will admit I tried wassabi a few years ago-can't stand it. I also didn't like sushi.

4. Have you been more demanding on yourself lately or less? Why? Do you think that's a good trend?

Lately, more demanding on myself.

5. Who is your favorite book, movie, or TV show villain? 

The only villain coming to my mind is J.R. Ewing, in Dallas.

6. How concerned are you about identity theft? 

Getting more concerned everyday.  I was nev…

Weekend Rewind

Weekend Rewind...

Moving started early Friday morning.  Daughter is heading to Roanoke to begin her Doctorate of Physical Therapy program.  How can one person have all this stuff?

Truck was loaded and 'little man' decided to pack his toys---

Friday was also Relay for Life...
Even though it rained, it didn't dampen our fun,

Little man enjoyed running the lap in the kid's relay.

and dancing in the rain to the music.

Terrible thunderstorms forced us to batten down the tents and eventually the remainder of the relay was cancelled but not before the lighting of the luminaries.

Cancer has struck many love ones in my family and this is a disease I want to see go away.

Saturday, we moved daughter to Roanoke.  So thankful for both of daughters' friends (boyfriends?) that help unload and carry the 'stuff' in.

Terrible thunderstorms arrived Sunday afternoon.  So much rain in a short period of time.  I am hoping the sun shines tomorrow.  Would someone please turn the…

1. May is National Blood Pressure Month...what sends yours soaring, either literally or figuratively? What calms you down? When did you last have your bp checked?

What sends my blood pressure up is people who are continually late!!!  Blood pressure soars when I tell a person we are leaving at a certain time and then I have to wait 20/30 minutes.  I understand sometimes circumstances prevent from leaving at a certain time but when it is usually the same person holding all up is not the circumstances.  Often I have just wanted to leave the other person behind, but that would be rude of me.

Blood pressure checked a couple of months ago at the dentist and it was great.
2. You just found $1-what do you spend it on? How about 10$ 100?
Hum..what will a $1.oo buy?   $10.00-I would use on my Zumba lessons.  Of course, the extra few bucks I have left could be spent on a candy bar.  Daughter laughs when I get out of the shower after Zumba and begin eating potato chips, crackers, and c…

Weekend Rewind

A very special weekend for me. It's Graduation Day!
After seven long years in college and the last three going continuously, daughter #1 graduated from pharmacy school Saturday!  Five tickets were issued to each student-daughter was able to get one extra from another student.  Hub, daughter #2. both grandmothers, her godmother, and I left early Saturday.  Getting a motel was out of the question-not only pharmacy school graduation, but also law students graduation also.  Tickets arrived on Thursday....

No tears yet.....

Daughters were ready to leave by 7:00 am... All smiles even though it was a rainy morning.

#2 daughter has to always check picture after taking...

Dad wanted a quick picture..

Daughters left and then we left shortly after.

.The campus is set in the foothills of Virginia.  A very small town-which just recently got a Wal-Mart!  Hey, what better place for a pharmacy school.

A little mist was still hanging around but the reception area was all set up.

I was still holdin…
