5 Hodgepodge Month (YAY ME!)

Where did January go? 5 Wednesdays, 5 Hodgepodges, so YAY ME!  What better way to end January than by answering some questions brought to us by Joyce?

1. Speaking of endings....at your wit's end, at loose ends, a dead end, burn the candle at both ends, all's well that end's well, or no end in sight...which 'end' phrase might best be applied to your life lately? Explain.  

At my wit's end. Work stuff. Sometimes it's hard to get an answer from people who are supposed to be "in the know".

2. What was a must-have accessory when you were growing up? Did you own one? If so tell us what you remember about it.

I know there must have been something, but I can't think of anything right now. I know as soon as I read other posts it'll come to me!!!

3. Something that made you smile yesterday?

Coming home to some pups who were happy to see me. My sweet little 15-year-old Jack Russell Mix (Pepper) has to wear a diaper during the day because she is taking medicine for a heart murmur and she can no longer hold it during the day. Since she doesn't have a tail, I also have to put "fancy pants" on her to help keep up the diaper. The whole not having a tail makes it hard for the diaper & fancy pants to stay on, so she will often come to me looking all "gangsta" with her britches halfway down!

4. January 30th is National Croissant Day. Do you like croissants? Sweet or savory? We're having chicken salad for lunch...would you rather have yours served on a croissant, a wrap, a bagel, bread, or a roll of some sort?

Ooooo! A chicken salad on a croissant is the best!

5. Sum up your January in fifteen words or less.

Snowy, cold, nice unexpected week's break from school!

6.  Insert your own random thought here.

I'm halfway through my Ireland posts already. 4 down, 4 to go!


  1. Mary,

    It's been cold but very little snow. I can do happily without, though. :) I can't imagine working in the school system, forget kids being more difficult today there's the constant threat of catching what they have! One of the benefits of homeschooling is I didn't have worry about my kids bringing something home from school. lol Have a good week!

  2. Oh sweet little Pepper! That would definitely be a trial for a dog. Glad she has you. :-)

  3. Sounds like you've made a lot of progress in 2018. I used to have a rescue named Pepper. Have a great week.

  4. I like picturing your gangsta pup : ) I’m enjoying reading about your trip!

  5. I really disliked it when people who should have had an answer didn't, and then asked you what you thought. I usually told them I wasn't paid enough to think.
    So sorry about Pepper. It must be difficult for both of you.

  6. Hey someone else at their wit's end too! And the image of your pup sounds adorable :)

  7. The doggy diaper gave me a giggle...gangsta look! I enjoyed reading your answers!

  8. I have GOT to get over here and read your Ireland posts. I think about it all the time but I'm either running around crazy or napping from running around crazy. LOL I'm going to read them all soon. I have to put a diaper on Tucker whenever I leave the house or when the grandkiddos get upset because he will pee on everything from nerves.

  9. Poor little pup...gangsta just looks so uncomfortable to me. That would make mesmile too!

  10. I remember doing that with one of our dogs. They look so sad all the time in the panties. Have a nice week ahead. Hope it calms down a little bit for you.
