A Tough Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What is something you'll never forget about the age you are right now?
Wow.  Joyce is starting out with a hard one!  Gosh, I have no idea.  I love the age I am now:  my kids are grown, and CH & I have the freedom to do some things by ourselves, and we're enjoying it!

2. What's a household chore you've never done? How have you managed that???
I can't think of anything.  I'm sure after I read everybody else's responses I'll hit my forehead!

3. Does nature shape our personalities more than nurture? Explain? 
I definitely think that your environment has an awful lot to do with shaping your personality. I've seen kids that come from awful environments have the drive and determination to make something of their lives, just like I've seen kids from similar environments sink further into that environment.  On the flip side, I've seen kids from wonderful environments have drive, just like I've seen kids from that environment think that the world owes them.  So, I think it's hard to say.  Who knows what the difference is?

4. Friday (February 28th) is 'Something on a Stick Day'...funny because Zoanna over at A Penchant for Pens recently sent me an idea for a question relating to this topic. What's your favorite food eaten on a stick? 

5. Which of your five senses do you treasure most, and why?
There's just no break with the hard questions today!  When I first read this, I thought about sight, because I've worn glasses since 2nd grade (although I needed them in 1st grade) and I have horrible eyesight.  But then, I started thinking about hearing, because it's pretty crucial in my career.

6. What's the best music, theatre, or sporting venue you've been to? What made it great?
A few years ago, I was really into going to the local Semi-pro hockey games.  It wasn't the most glamorous and definitely not the fanciest venue, but what a great atmosphere!  There's no other place where yelling "You suck" is not only acceptable, but expected!  (Hope that doesn't offend anybody!)

7. It's the last week of the month...in five words or less bid adieu to your February.
One month closer to June!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Finally:  A good night's sleep!  It just took a killer headache, and I was out like a light before 8:00.  It was great...until 1:30, 2:00 a.m. when I woke up.  It took me a while to fall back to sleep, but I did it!  And, I think figured out the cause of the headache was a lack of caffeine.  I hadn't had any coffee since last Thursday.  I had some this morning (after feeling like the headache was coming back) and I felt great.
Last night's Bachelor episode was no where near the drama the previews made it out to 
be.  A tad bit disappointing.


  1. I'm with you...I was bummed by The Bachelor last night. I just find Juan Pablo kind of annoying. I liked him, at first, but he just doesn't seem "real" to me. Can't wait to see how it all ends.

  2. I need my coffee too. I think thinking keeps me awake not the caffine.

  3. I know - I actually laughed about the Bachelor. When he kept saying "Its OK" after she told him not to say it again... the whole thing is just funny now. Glad my favorite, Renee got booted & out of that mess.

    The chore question is a hard one.

  4. When we lived in MD we loved the minor league ball park...such a bargain compared to the pros too. You sit close to the field and don't have all the traffic/parking woes.

    I gotta have my coffee! I don't overdo it, but I need that first cup every day.

  5. Yay! for a good night's sleep. Nothing much better than that for helping a body feel good!

  6. I have heard of people getting headaches because of lack of caffeine. I stopped drinking caffeine years ago! I know you want summer to come but not yet, it's all going by too fast as it is :)

  7. I am glad that Andi gave Juan Pablo the boot - he now seems very shallow and all ego - all about himself.

  8. You're at a great phase in your life! Getting the kids raised was my favorite phase, other than being a newlywed.
