Wednesday Hodgepodge

Wishing all a Happy Thanksgiving

1. What's something you might say runs in your family?

Being on time...punctuality!  I taught my girls right on this one.  If there is one thing that is a pet peeve of mine is being late.  Now I know sometimes things happen but not all the time. 

2. I read here a list of ten things you should do before 2017 arrives (in less than six weeks!)...which tasks on the list might you do? What would you add to your own 'before the year ends' list?

visit your Dr. or dentist, deep clean your home, donate unwanted items to charity, look someone in the eye and tell them you love them, write an honest letter to yourself, clean up your inbox-desktop-photos, travel to a place you haven't been, compliment a stranger, watch the sunrise, think ahead to your goals/plans for the new year

I have been to the doctor for my yearly check-up, been to the dentist for six month check-up, always look hub and family in the eye and tell them I love them, watch the sunrise (early bird), clean up my inbox, donated items to charity,complimented a stranger (in grocery store) and visited a place I haven't been before.
I haven't done deep cleaning, but I don't want to do that.  I am afraid to write an honest letter to myself! ha  I guess I should think about my goals and plans for the new year or better yet talk hub into traveling to a place he has never been before and I can tag along.

3. What's something other generations (not your own) misunderstand about yourgeneration?

We need more time to figure out and process the new least I do.

4. Sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy, cornbread dressing-which would you miss the most if it weren't on the holiday dinner menu?

Sweet potato casserole.

5. What are you overthinking right now?

Right now....absolutely nothing!

6. Your favorite slang word lately?

Let it go

7. Write an acrostic for the word grateful.

8. Random thoughts

This will be a 'first' Thanksgiving for us and by 'first' I mean family is going separate ways....I know I need to learn to share...and it will come gradually.


  1. I like your acrostic poem and your slang term. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. As a new empty nester, I can relate to your random thought. My son joined the military earlier this year, and he got married before he left. We will be sharing he and his wife during Christmas. It's a new experience for all of us, but I am determined to be an understanding mom and not make him feel bad. "Sharing is caring," or so I've been told. :) Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Ahh those firsts are the hardest! It is hard to share when they've been yours for so long. You can do this!

    Your acrostic is wonderful. All mine amounts to is a list of words. I couldn't think of where to go with it. You did a great job with yours!

    Have a blessed week and a very Happy Thanksgiving. :)

  4. You are right, technology is changing so fast it is hard to keep up. I just got our rotary phone figured out. If the phone is so danged smart, it should know to do what I want it to do without ME having to try to figure IT out.

  5. Great acrostic. Sharing can be hard but I try not to make a big deal over it, especially since our son, who has an American wife, has settled here in the UK. So we will have my UK version of a Thanksgiving meal today especially for her. Happy Thanksgiving to you.
