Wednesday Hodgepodge

Click on the graphic to join in the fun!

1. What is something that bothers you if it is not done perfectly? Um, everything? I tend to have some perfectionist tendencies that like to rear their ugly head. I am always much harder on myself than anyone ever is to me, but that's just me.

2. What is one of your best childhood memories? Spending summers with my relatives in Massachusetts. Up until a few years ago I was convinced we spent all summer there. I found out that it was really only two weeks. I suppose to a child, it just felt like forever. I know that's not a specific memory, but they all blend together for me (I went on this vacation from the time I was 2 until I was 8). 

3. Do you plan to watch the Royal Wedding and when was the last time you wore a hat? I don't plan to but if I had regular broadcast TV I might tune in. I remember watching when Princess Di & Prince Charles were married and what a fairytale that seemed like. And I wear hats a lot. I wore one just a few days ago and will probably wear one tonight.

4. Where do you fall in the birth order in your family? Do you think this has influenced your personality? I am fourth out of five children. There is a four year gap between my next oldest sibling. This means I was treated as a "baby" of the family but I was also treated as an "oldest." I do feel it's affected my personality and I really hope it's all positive!

5. Where do you think you spend most of your money? Corner store grabbing snacks for the boys & I. It's an awful habit I need to break. Other than that - most likely books and I don't plan to break that habit any time soon! Sorry, honey!

6. When you need to confront someone would you rather communicate in person, on the phone, by email or by letter? Why? Email or letter. I express myself better in writing. And I really hate confrontation so I may not even follow through with that!

7. Dodge ball, freeze tag, kickball or jump rope? You have to pick one. One? Really? Hmmmm....I'd have to go with...kickball probably. I like all of them except dodge ball. I've always hated dodge ball. I think it's just mean. 

8. Insert your own random thought here. Spring has finally sprung and I have my first cold. Blah! It's all in my head and I've spent the day feeling like I have to sneeze but not sneezing. Not fun! 

The boys & I went on a great field trip last week. I'm still trying to finish up the blog posts on it, but I thought I'd leave you with a sneak peak......

  1. It's funny what memory does to time and also the spaces of childhood...some things seemed so big but if we go back to them as an adult we see they were not.

    Your field trip looks interesting...and cold : )


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
