I know. I’m off the blogging bandwagon again. It turns out that a full time job takes 40 hours a week! Who knew? And, in preparation for the first day of school, I actually worked even longer than that.
Sweet, sweet overtime. I haven’t gotten paid overtime since … forever.
I’m joining Joyce again today for the Wednesday Hodgepodge. Click on the button and say hi to Joyce. She is truly one of the nicest people on the web.
1. I included this quote (attributed to William H. Danforth) in my blog post yesterday… “The best cure for a sluggish mind is to disturb it’s routine.” When was the last time you ‘disturbed your routine’ and how’d you do it?
My life has been nothing but disturbed routines recently. It’s good for me. I definitely feel my brain being used in new ways.
2. What’s your favorite fried food indulgence?
Funnel cake. No contest.
Look at that crispy, doughy, sugary goodness. I’m glad they aren’t readily available or I’d weigh about 30 pounds more than I do.
3. Did you have an allowance as a kid? What did you do with it? Do you give your own kids an allowance?
I am sure that I did and I am sure that I probably blew it weekly unlike my sister, Nicki, who saved every penny and the would smugly tell me how much she had when I was broke and refuse to lend me anything.
4. What’s something you wish you knew more about?
Where to start? Computers, following a map, scripture, what goes on in my kids’ heads, erasing wrinkles… . that’ll do for starters.
5. Is there anything you feel too old to do anymore? If so, what?
There a few trivial things on this list, but what is really coming to the forefront of my brain is that I am too old to judge people anymore. I have now lived long enough that my list of mistakes and mishaps is so long that I’m no longer in a position to judge other people.
6. What’s a song you think has a great first line?
I introduced my kids to that song this summer. It’s awesome.
7. Who are you writing to/for when you create a blog post? In other words…as you write, who is the audience in your head?
Sometimes it’s for my family, but generally it’s for you all. I just picture you out there - some as specific faces and some as fuzzy images and I imagine that we all know each other in real life and I’m catching you up on my life.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I just want to take this opportunity to offer my sincere condolences to Katie on the passing of her father over the weekend. Family is so important and special and she and her dad seemed especially close. I would imagine that this is going to be a bumpy road as she navigates the grieving process. Send some love and prayers her way please.
