A Hodgepodge of Olympic Proportion


1. The Wednesday Hodgepodge landing on Groundhog's Day sounds about right. Besides the Hodgepodge what else lands on your calendar  just once a week? Is it as much fun as the Hodgepodge-ha!? 

Well, I have RCIA (the class people take to learn more about Catholicism-I’m a team member) on Wednesdays and choir practice at church on Thursdays. Choir practice is usually a lot of fun, so I’d say it outweighs the Hodgepodge!

2. The Winter Olympics begin on Friday, surrounded by much controversy. Will you be watching? Why or why not? Have you ever been to China?

I usually like to watch the opening ceremony and a few events. I haven’t thought about watching it, but maybe I will just to support the US athletes. Not that they know or care! I’ve never been to China and really have no desire to go.

3. Something in your life lately that has felt a bit like an 'olympic event'? 


4. Do you like fondue? Sweet or savory? Restaurant only or do you own your own fondue set?

I’ve never had fondue but I’ll go out on a limb and say that I’d prefer sweet.

5. Give us five short (2-3 word) phrases to sum up your January. 

not well (COVID? My doctor says it’s a yes even though I didn’t test)

very cold

bundled up

ate too much

one full week

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Explanation of  “one full week” in #5: The school system where I work was only in session for 1 full week  in January because of the weather and a shortage of teachers due to illness.  1 week we were only there 1 day: we started out the week with bad weather, went in on Wed. and then we were out the last 2 days because of illness. That’s the week I was sick. I never was fatigued; I thought I had a bad cold that turned into strep. I broke down the next Tues. and went to the clinic for a strep test but it was negative (tonsillitis). The nurse practitioner said she was fine testing me for COVID or not testing since I was outside of the 5 day isolation period. (that was day 7) I opted to not be tested. When I went to my regular doctor yesterday she told me that she thought I had it. So did I or didn’t I? Does it really even matter?
