Driving Into the Hodgepodge



From this Side of the Pond
1. Last time you drove more than 100 miles from your home? Where did you go? 

Last December, I drove to see an ole friend from college.  I spent New Year's Eve with her and New Year's Day.  She lives in Roanoke and is a nurse.  We had gotten in touch with each other over the summer, she came to my house in October, and we made plans for me to spend New Year's Eve with her.  

2. Something that drives you batty? 

People who live in a fake  world....and people who share their dirty laundry.  I have Facebook , and I do look at Facebook and post some things.  But so many people paint this wonderful picture on facebook and live in this make believe world, but it isn't true. Maybe this is the only one people can cope with what is really going on in their lives.  Then you have people who air out their dirty laundry...oh my word...it drives me batty.  BUT then again, I have to choice to look at Facebook or not and so it is my fault this drives me batty.

3. Do you feel like you're 'on track'? For what? 

No!!  I had planned to do so much around the house over the summer and Nope haven't accomplished much and school starts in TWO weeks!  No way am I on track.

4. Your favorite car snack(s)? 

When youngest daughter played college basketball, there was a lot of traveling.  I always took apples, almonds, and carrots.  Something about the crunch was satisfying to me.  Hub would always pull into a fast food place and grab a burger and fries; I just couldn't eat all that grease, sit in a car for hours, and then have to sit and watch a basketball game.  Of course, at the game, I always got popcorn and candy.

5. Something you've done recently 'on the fly'? 

Only thing that comes to my mind is letting daughter cut my hair.  I haven't been able to make a hair appointment and my hair was getting on my nerves.  Last  Thursday, as a matter of fact, daughter asks if I want her to cut my hair which I quickly replied, "Sure." I had forgotten all about it till she came Friday to pick up the boys with her scissors and other stuff.  Now, my daughter is a DPT not a hairdresser!!!  I let her cut my hair and I must admit she did a good job!  She said she watched a lot of videos on You Tube and learned.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

I have been freezing a lot of squash, zucchini, and zucchini bread...I am so glad I put out a little garden.  I have enjoyed working in my garden this summer maybe that is why I haven't accomplished my inside house projects.

My daughter has had some female problems and goes for more tests this morning.  Please whisper a prayer all will be okay. Thanks

Have a great rest of the week and Enjoy Life!

  1. I will add your daughter to my prayers today. I think a garden is good for the mind, body, and spirit so you've definitely accomplished something. Are you back working full time? Enjoy your day!

  2. Prayed for your daughter. Hey if you're doing a garden, then it's okay if the inside slides a little bit.

  3. Oh how quickly the summer passes by. That's part of the blessedness of retirement - one day runs into another and there are no deadlines and "go back to work" days. Hoping all with well with your daughter.
