It's Hodge Podge


1. I included this quote (attributed to William H. Danforth) in my blog post on Monday..."The best cure for a sluggish mind is to disturb its routine." When was the last time you 'disturbed your routine' and how'd you do it?

My routine has been upset for a while now. I have kind of been flying by the seat of my pants....Hopefully a routine is in my future! I so love the structured life.

2. What's your favorite fried food indulgence?

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE fried fish and chips!!
3. Did you have an allowance as a kid? What did you do with it? Do you give your own kids an allowance?
I do not think I had an allowance as a kid, but I really can't remember.
I did try the allowance thing with my kids but in the end the just got what we could give them at the time. before I was a nurse times were very tight.

4. What's something you wish you knew more about?

Government. Crazy as it sounds I would love to get in there and help with health care. I do not think government should be in health care but definitely do think something needs to be done. Maybe some day, who knows?

5. Is there anything you feel too old to do anymore? If so, what?

Honestly some days I feel too old to walk up right! All these years of floor nursing have done a job on my back. I never let it stop me though! I never was an athlete so any sports are crazy for me. ( I once almost broke my nose playing catch with my hubby before we were married. yea I think that is a whole other blog about my sporty self! LOL!)

6. What's a song you think has a great first line?
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a land slide?
Bohemian Rhapsody

7. Who are you writing to/for when you create a blog post. In other you write, who is the audience in your head?

I mostly write for me to get things off my chest. I love to write and at the time I started this blog I was going through some family stuff and needed to vent. Had no one really to listen at the time so I started my blog to get things off my chest and just put my thoughts out there.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Ok, much has happened since I have blogged or Hoge Podged. I was in Cleveland 2 hours from home planning to work there. I was doing the testing thing going to the computer classes and all that stuff. I came home for the weekend. On Saturday night I was attempted to help our old dog into the house because her back legs do not work so well any more. She fell, I lifeted her and tried to assist her up the step into the house. She fell again this time twisting my wrist in an awkard way. PAIN shot through my wrist, my right wrist. I am right handed. PAIN< PAIN AND MORE PAIN. She got in I cried myself to sleep and called the doctor first thing in the morning. Nothing was broken, Praise God! But it was sprained. I was not able to use it. I called the agency that I was working for. they called the hospital. My contract was canceled because I could not work.
I was bummed. I had to go up there and clean out my palce and come back home and look, yet again, for another job.  I did have a part time job at a local community college teaching nursing (this is what I am going to school to get my Master's degree in). I went in for my scheduled visit. The Dean of nursing said she wanted to talk to me because she had a resignation and would like me to work full time and becme faculity if I could finish my Master's by October of next year. But for the moment I could work as a community faculity full time if I wanted. OF COURSE I WANTED!!! Its Local!!!
Since then my school has told me with hard work I could finish the degree and a faculity position has been offered to me which I accepted!!! We are working out details and getting orientated but I have a local job!!!! PRISE THE LORD!!!! IT IS ALL BECAUSE OF HIM!!!
