1.  Did you do anything 'memorable' this past weekend?

NO! not by my choice   I love to do get out and just enjoy; however, hub does not.  When the girls were younger, we would go and leave hub behind.  Now that the girls are older and have a life of their own, I do not like going places by myself.  I need to get over this and just go.  I hate sitting at home!  Hub is so content on just sitting and doing nothing.


2. Ronald Reagan is quoted as saying-
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."  
Your thoughts? Do you somehow acknowledge and appreciate the freedoms you enjoy? Did your upbringing contribute to that sense of appreciation? If you're a parent, are there specific things you do to pass on this sense of responsibility and appreciation to your own children in regard to the freedoms they enjoy?

Hop on over and join the Hodgepodge party.


1.  Did you make someone laugh yesterday? Was it intentional?

I think I did--I seem to always come out with something.
Grandson is in to wrestling, and on Monday he and I were wrestling.  I put my hair in a ponytail and after Grandson put a 'move on me' my ponytail wasn't a ponytail anymore. I could make out the comment as hub was laughing..look at your hair.

2. What's a simple question with a complicated answer?

How can the government be so far in debt? Where does our money go?

3. Rhododendrons or azaleas...you have to choose. Are either currently blooming in your yard?

4. May 21st is National Waitstaff Day. Have you ever worked as a waiter/waitress? How would you rate the experience? What was the best/worst part of the job?

I have never worked as a waitress.  In my opinion, I think being a waitress would be very difficult because a waitress/waiter is usually the person who is blamed for the meal not being served c…

First I am so glad to be participating-have had my plate overloaded!!!

1. When is your next big deadline? What's it for?

Deadlines..... I need to finish moving daughter our of her apartment before May 25th.  Went last Saturday to pack up pictures, dishes, etc. but did not have a U-haul available.  It is going to be somewhat difficult because hub can't lift over 10lbs doctor's order!  But I will manage--this is big for me because if I am unable to finish moving her then I will have to pay another month's rent.  The end of the school year is approaching so I continue to get bogged down with paperwork.  Oh yeah-I am still planning a wedding in August.

2. May is National Barbecue Month. Do you prefer cooking indoors or out? What's the best thing about a barbecue? What's the last thing you cooked on an outdoor grill?

Hub loves to grill out and I never have any objection!  We have grilled out in the snow...
We grilled out Sunday-barbecue chicken and corn.

3. What is on…

Weekend Rewind....



Hope all mothers had a fun-filled, Happy Mother's Day!



I haven't been able to blog in a couple of weeks.  Honestly, I don't know where to start.  Too much happenings right now.


The end of the school year is slowly approaching.  I have been trying to get my paperwork in order, which I am usually pretty good at--but this year I just can't seem to get it altogether.  When I feel like I have accomplished one thing to check off my list something else pops up. I spent a couple of nights working till around 7 last week at school.  I don't know but it has been kinda crazy right now.

The weather has been summer time gorgeous and quite warm for this time of the year.Yesterday hub and I headed to Roanoke to help daughter pack up.  We were able to load most of the things in the van and on a truck--in totes.  Hub is going to head up this week in a U-haul to finish the heavy furniture stuff.  I feel like I have spent the last 8 years moving, packing, moving,…
