Wednesday Hodgepodge








1. What is something that bothers you if it's not done perfectly?

Hmm… not really sure.. I guess, I would have to say folding laundry and putting it away properly. My kids like to just throw it in their dressers and shove the draw shut. Drives me nuts!

2. Do you think a 6th sense exists? Explain. 

I think that there is something out there, that helps tell you when something is wrong. I struggle with this because even as a kid, I knew when something bad had happened. For example, at a very young age..(can’t remember the exact, I’m guessing around 5 or 6) my uncle died in motorcycle accident. I had this horrible feeling at the babysitters all day that something had happened to him. I heard people talking about a bike accident later in the day. I told my mom when she picked me up, and when we got home we found out what happened. How to explain that I don’t know. But it was freaky and I always have followed any feelings I’ve had since then.


3. Do you say your goodbyes slowly, quickly, or not at all?

Depends on who it is… most of the time quickly. I don’t like to linger, cause I know I will get upset if it is for any length of time. Normal goodbyes are quick and painless. Smile


4. On a scale of 1-10, with ten being hot hot hot, what level of spice do you like in your food? What's your favorite 'spicy' dish?

I would have to say 2.. I’m a whimp and not big on spicy food. Which is strange cause I do love Mexican, but it can’t be to hot for me. Strange I know!


5. What is one of your all time favorite commercial jingles?

I really don’t know. I hate commercials, and really don’t watch much TV anymore. I can’t think of any off the top of my head.


6. Plane, train, boat or auto...your preferred method of travel?

I love to fly.. as does my son. Smile  Due to cost of flights and 5 people in our family now, I can't afford to fly much.

We would really like to try a train. I’m hoping maybe this next year we could.

Never been anywhere on a boat for a length of time, but I want us to take a cruise vacation at some point maybe 5 yrs down the road.

I’ve gotten really good at traveling by car over the past few years, so I would have to say this is our preferred due to cost restraint. As well as the fact that the kids really enjoy it, the are good, and we like to stop at new places.


7. What is something you take for granted?

Life in general. We all get busy in our daily life to stop and savor our lives. But they are taken from us in a split second. No time to say goodbye or that we love someone one last time. Treasure every moment, live like you have no tomorrow and ENJOY your life. You only have one, and it will be over before you know it.


8. Insert your own random thought here.

I need to learn to take time for myself more. Money always seems to be an issue, and I know I’m lucky to stay home with my kids, so I don’t complain. However, its starting to take its toll on me, and the stress is taking its toll on me. Physically and Mentally. I need to realize I’m not superwoman and I can’t do it all alone. (is that possible)

I hope to start making some changes slowly… Does anyone else have that problem??

My answer to #8...Yes! I find that if I can even just get out of the house by myself for a few hours, say to go grocery shopping or something, it helps. Not glamorous, but hey, it's by myself ;)
