Back to the Hodgepodge

1. What’s something you’re never too young or too old to enjoy?
Fireworks.  Ice Cream.  A fresh box of crayons.  Reveling in dessert because I cleaned my plate at dinner

Things that make you go hmmmmmm…..

You know, honestly?  I don’t know that I’d remember to blog regularly if it weren’t for my linkups.  There are things I want to remember, and things I want to say, but I’m usually too tired to think out how to word it.  I need to do better with that, and try to have non-linkup postings, but for now, it works!

1. Share one way you think the world has changed for the better since you were a kid?
2. How ’bout one way it’s changed for the worse?
I’m going to answer these two together.  But before I do, here is a disclaimer ****I am in no way trying to start a political or theoretical discussion/argument with this answer.  I’m simply stating facts, and am not even giving my own personal standing on this topic at this time.  Any soapbox comments are subject to deletion**** Continue reading

Hodgepodge Questions-Volume 133

I remembered to pull these up on Tuesday night! I am so proud of myself!  Next week is VBS though, so unless it’s slow at work (wink wink) I’m going to miss all my blogging linkups.

Hodgepodge Hiatus is Over!

Our wonderful host for the Hodgepodge is back, so the list is back up for the week!  Here’s this week’s information:

  1. Summertime is a season of reunions, weddings, and other family celebrations and gatherings…are any of the above on your calendar in the next two months?
    Due to my mother’s declining health, she’s not hosting a reunion of the family this year.  And I have to say, I’m relieved.  My brother and I are the only ones of our generation between the ages of 30-50 who attend, and it’s stale.  Maybe next year.  Weddings I’ve already been to two, and have to miss one because of Vacation Bible School.  Father’s Day weekend was a gathering of sorts, and it was nice–my dad brought his mom home for a few days (she’s 91 today.  Happy Birthday Grandma!), my brother, SIL, and their new baby came over, and I drove up to DC for a delightful day just being together.
