It's wednesday you guessed it Hodge Podge time


Yes my friends it is Wednesday again that glorious day when we answer questions form our leader Joyce just to get to know each other a little better.

1. Aloha! On August 21, 1959 Hawaii officially became a US state. Have you ever been? Upon arrival would you prefer an orchid or a hibiscus to tuck behind your ear?

I have never been to Hawaii  although I would love to go. I hear the cost of living is high. But I would still want to go. I liked both the orchid and the hibiscus flower.  But I think I would like the orchid behind my ear.

2. Since we're talking tropical...what's your favorite food or beverage made with pineapple?

Pizza!! I love Hawaiian pizza with ham and pineapple!!! yum1

3. Do you believe in soul mates? Explain.

I do. I think a soul mate is someone with whom you have a special connection. I have this kind of connection with my hubby. He is my soul mate. We sometimes have the same thoughts at the same time. Sometimes that is funny! Like he will say something that is the exact thing I was thinking about.

4. Share a memory about the house you grew up in.

I grew up in several different homes. The constant home for me was my grandmother's house. When we were kids we were sure there were ghosts in the basement. Now in this house the bathroom was in the basement as was the play area for us kids and a "back cellar" that was the spooky place for us.
I remember when someone would think the basement was empty and turn out the light my grandmother had a crucifix on the wall. In the dark Jesus would glow. This really freaked us out as kids...
5. Are you comfortable with silence?

sometimes, I am sometimes I am not. Sometimes I just need noise.

6. You spot a giant spider on your bedroom wall...what's your next move? (all spiders are giant, right?)

Call my husband or lave the room and close the door if he is not home.  know that is silly but I do not do spiders and and any other bug if I can't see them they can't see me right????

7. My idea of fun does NOT include ______________.

Exercise! I am not an athletic person, never have been. Do not like sports, never have. Will watch nascar race and Steeler football that is about all. I get bored when I go to sporting events. thank goodness for the other entertainment there.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I started my NEW job. Career I should say. I will be teaching first year nursing students at the local college. I will be in the lab with them and in a clinical location. I love nursing and to be able to teach student nurses is a dream to me. I am actually doing work to obtain my Master's degree in nursing education and should have my MSN (masters of science in nursing) by October of next year. I am so excited about this job. The staff is all wonderful, the dean of nursing is great. Now I just have to meet my students! I can't wait!

I am starting to think no one likes spiders... Serves them right, being all creepy and such!

I'm so glad you're enjoying your new role! Good luck finishing up your MS too. Sounds like life can finally settle down a bit for you there.

Have a nice day!

Wow! Congrats on your new job!!! And I'm finding it funny how so many people's stories about their childhood homes include dark basements, creepy crawly spaces, etc. But I've got to admit, as much as i love the Lord, a glow-in-the-dark crucifix would have probably freaked the bejeebees out of me too!
