Almost forgot Hodge Podge Wednesday

Ok, I have to admit I did forget it is now 1am on Thursday. But I am posting anyway!
1. What do you do at the first sign of a cold? Will you get a flu shot this year?

At the first sign of a cold I grab my nasal spray for my allergies. It usually is allergies first, then sinus infection. Recently I have gotten some vitamin (of course it is still in SC where everything else is but good news we are headed down next week to get some stuff). I get a flu shot every year I am a nurse and around many sick people. It helps really.

2. What advice can you give about how to conquer fear?

This is a hard one for me because I am deathly afraid of closed in spaces. I am very claustrophobic. I am the crazy person who can not get an MRI. I have also suffered from panic attacks in the past so fear is something I struggle with. I would say the best advice I could give is pray, pray, pray.

3. Share two good things about your life right now.

1. My husband, he is always there for me my knight in shining armor and my biggest fan and supporter.
2. My children and their families, I feel I am truly blessed both my daughter and my son have great families. (I tried adding some pictures but was taking way to long)

4. A hot fashion trend for 2011 is a return to 60s style.....tunics with pants, shift dresses, pencil skirts, cinched waists, bold prints, high necklines and short lengths to name a few. How does this fashion trend fit with your wardrobe and personal style?

I like the tunic and pants, can hide body flaws. Shift dresses and pencil skirts I am not that sure of not into pencil skirts but shift dresses maybe. High necklines would bring back to the above question about fear and claustrophobia can't wear them feel like its choking me; and I am not into short lengths these days. My wardrobe is much like Hodge Podge Wednesdays it is a mix of different things and styles.

5. Were you involved in scouting as a kid? How about as an adult?

I was in girl scouts for 1 year as a cadet. Didn't much like it.

6. Apple, pear, plum, pumpkin....your favorite fall flavor?

I would have to say pumpkin. To eat and decorate.

7. What characteristics do you think are essential in a good teacher?

I think a good teacher is compassionate about her students. She/he has a heart for teaching and wanting to make a difference in children's lives. This question makes me think of my kindergarten, first and second grade teacher (she followed us to second grade) Her name was Sister Cynthia, she was great and really wanted to help us learn.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I am really looking forward to fall weather in Ohio. I have been in South Carolina for 15 years. I have missed the sights and smells of fall.

I can't stand tight things like turtlenecks around my neck either!!! It feels stiffling.
I love the fall weather and am waiting for it to arrive here on Long Island :)
