Wednesday hodgepodge

1. When did someone last suggest you 'chill out'? Or, when did you last tell someone (or want to tell someone) to 'chill out'? Or, when did you last tell yourself to 'chill out'?

I am told at least weekly to 'chill out' or take a 'chill pill'.  I do get 'worked up' over things and I want to take a stand and I know I can't control the situation and I want to so desperately to change things so daughter usually says to me- "Mom, take a 'chill pill'!  But I don't want to take a 'chill pill'!

2. What most recently caused your heart to melt? 

When a person asked hub to baptize her this past Sunday.

An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered." G.K. Chesterton  

Your thoughts? When did you last experience either an adventure or an inconvenience? How did you see it at first, as an adventure or an inconvenience?  Does it feel the same in hindsight?

My whole life has been an adventure and yes a slightly inconvenience!

4.  A Wendy's Frosty, root beer in a frosty mug, or a frosted chocolate cupcake...of these three, which one is your favorite 'frosty' treat?

A Wendy's Frosty is my favorite.  I do not like root beer and a frosted chocolate cupcake is just a little too much chocolate.

5. Would you say your life so far this year has been more like a circus or a symphony? Explain why.

Circus!  I feel I am becoming a great juggler-juggle schedules here, juggle wedding stuff with daughter-now I know it is exciting but juggling dates/places, etc. is getting to me, I know I will find balance.  
Then sometimes I feel like a clown--always laughing and saying to myself-okay what else is gong to happen.

6. Since it's a 'snow day' here, what's your favorite song containing the word 'white'?

Billy Idol-White Wedding  I have wedding plans on my mind or Michael Jackson Black or White about the human race not just one particular race.

7. If you had to leave the city you currently live in, what would you find the hardest to leave behind?

Some local celebrations we have-Apple Festival, Concert in the park, etc.
8. Insert your own random thought here.

First, No Ya'll don't get too upset with me-I would love to have some snow maybe a 5-6 inches!  We haven't had any snow this year and I want some.
I am beginning a new Bible Study tonight-Are You a Fan or Follower?  Sounds exciting and can't wait to begin.


  1. If you're daughter is planning a wedding, I understand why your life feels like a circus :)
    Hope you get that snow you're wishing for!

  2. I've heard good things about Are You a Fan. I understand wanting a little snow in the middle of winter. I'm glad it didn't get too crazy here, but we've got plenty. I like snow in January and February. I just don't want to see it in April! Enjoy the wedding's a big job, but your efforts are rewarded on the day : )

  3. Wedding planning can definitely be a 3 ring circus however when it comes together you will have a symphony.

  4. No snow here, so far, and I really hope it stays that way! How many more days until spring is all I want to know?! I'm sure that wedding planning can be quite overwhelming and 'circus-like'. Hang-in-there!

  5. I had to laugh at your adventure and inconvenience answer. :-) Hope you have a great day and a great adventure!

  6. Wedding plans in the mix. Yes, your life is a bit crazy. I spoke with my granddaughter in Dallas last night and she was so overwhelmed. Doing student teaching in Frisco, working in Lewisville on weekends, taking a last minute on-line class in order to graduate from A&M in May and planning a wedding for May 30. YIKES! Wishing for snow in northwest La. too, but instead its 70 degrees.

  7. Sometimes...I don't want to take a chill pill either...
    Lovely answers Tammy...and you really made me smile...Thank you

  8. I'm with you on the snow thing. I could use a snow day or 2!
