Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Labor Day weekend (in the US of A) is approaching...what's something you've labored over this year? 

Getting our new business off the ground.

2. What is one word to describe your 'job' or career?

Rewarding.  Teaching is a rewarding job.  We (teachers) do not know about the rewards until many years later when a graduate sends us a card thanking us for all we had done many years ago or when someone just says if it wasn't for you I do not know what I would have done.  Teachers do more than teach-much behind the scenes goes on that the public is unaware of.  I love my job!

3. What was your worst or least favorite job ever? Why?
During the summer of my college days, I had a job working in a factory-sheet rock boards.  I decided right then and there to finish college and get a degree.

4. How do you measure contentment?

Tough one-I think one can measure contentment by happiness, but then life throws in a devastating curve ball and...  I really don't know the answer to …

1. What's your worst food memory?  How about one of your best?

Hum...I can't recall a worst or best food memory.

2. Do you appreciate people telling it like it is, or would you rather a speaker temper his/her words and maybe beat around the bush a little?  How about when you're the one communicating...which type are you? 

I appreciate someone telling it like it us.  By the time someone beats around the bush, I am already too nervous/angry to listen.

I am very blunt about telling someone like it is.

3. What's your favorite place to hang out?

Any kind of coffee shop or book store.

4. When do you most feel like you're a slave to time?

Right now, almost everyday!

5. What was the last concert you attended?  Who'd you go with? Was it any good?

I do believe hub and I saw the Eagles in concert many years ago.  Gosh! I haven't been to a concert in years!  Now I really need to go.

6. Reality TV...harmful or harmless?  What's your guilty pleasure when it comes to reali…

Weekend Rewind

Productive weekend in the Doane's house.

Friday I was able to do a 'little' house cleaning.  Just a little cleaning while hub was helping announce a high school football scrimmage.  It is that time of year again-time for football.  I was able to do some cleaning on the house.  This was okay especially when I had the house to myself for a change-easier to clean with everyone out and busy with their own activities.

Saturday, I attended a baby shower for one of my former teacher's daughter.  It was more like a teacher reunion than a baby shower. The mother to be was beautiful-as always-just hard seeing her all grown  up. Great conversation, memories, and food what a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

After the shower, hub and I went to purchase some more stuff for our coffee shop.  We plan on opening in two weeks--Yikes!   I was getting a little nervous not having things done-on my own timetable-so I warned hub what was in store for him when I returned home. Hub …

1. My daughter earned her Master's Degree this past weekend...what's something you've 'mastered' in recent weeks or months?

Since beginning our 'business adventure,' I have most definitely mastered the skills in building. Truly admire contractors because most do know what they are doing and it is extremely hard work.

2. What song most reminds you of your childhood?

Weekend Rewind

This is going to be more like summer rewind instead of weekend rewind.   Can you tell I am already back in school?

Looking back, I haven't written in a couple of weeks.  So...

Our new business-pharmacy, coffee shop, and country store is moving right along. We are in the short rows now, and I am getting excited. By the way, daughter #1 has passed her other state board test.  I have two pet ;peeves about the state boards-first, with all the technology we have today daughter literally was sick for a week wondering if she passed the test.  The test was on taken on the computer and when the submit test button was pushed why can't it show whether she passed right then besides waiting. Second-I get agitated that a test will determine your profession.  These are medical professionals-I think their brains are already in a  state of over load.  Back to our business-got a little side tracked....   It stopped raining for a couple of days, and were able to fill in.  Grandson loved riding …
