Wednesday HodgePodge!

Wednesday, June 26, 2013
Happy Wednesday Friends! Time for another Wednesday Hodgepodge with Joyce from over at From This Side of the Pond . 

Hope you enjoy! 

Summertime is a season of reunions, weddings, and other family celebrations and gatherings...are any of the above on your calendar in the next two months?

Well my mom is hosting the last family reunion sometime in August but I am not going. I don't think mom was too happy about it either! But we will be making a lot of trips in August with the kids.. then we have school starting so I just don't think the family reunion 7 hours away is going to happen. But we do have a lot planned with the kids in July. Everything from the Waterpark, Zoo, Lake Lure, Pool.. etc. Just summer fun!

June is National Iced Tea Month...are you an iced tea drinker? If so, how do you like yours (sweet, flavored, etc)? 

Yes, I am a big tea drinker. I like hot tea and iced tea. I would have to say my absolute favorite is the Mikey D's sweet tea. I normally buy it by the gallon because I love it so much! I normally don't make cold tea anymore. There are a couple of brands I buy. I maybe should make it to save money but I never make it as good as the ones I buy! 

When were you last nervous? Looking back, was the event actually 'nerve-worthy'?

I don't really have to look back to answer this question.  I am nervous today...Right Now...because Jackson left a few hours ago to go spend a month with his dad. I will probably worry the entire time but I just want him to go have a good time. Is it " nerve- worthy" ...I think so. He's my son.. my baby and I worry about him all the time. He's a little nervous too and made me promise to come him if he wants to come home. Its not going to be the same around here without him. Over New Years, he went with his dad for 3 days..I was pretty nervous then and nothing bad happened. Fingers crossed father and son have a great time together. 

The bristle toothbrush was invented in China on June 26, 1498...not sure how that date was pinned down so precisely but, on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being sick to your stomach and 1 being not at all, how nervous do you feel when you're headed to the dentist? Do you see your dentist twice a year?

I do not go to the dentist twice a year unless something is wrong. I don't ever go to the Dentist unless I am in pain. I know.. not so good but all those metal tools going in my mouth just cripples me. Normally if I have an apt to go.. they give me meds to keep me calm during the visit. I hate it.. I hate it.. I hate it. 

What's making news in your town this week? 

Well, I don't really watch local news that often. I watch more national news like CNN and HLN but for us.. Its all about the Treyvon Martin Murder Trial and also Paula Dean using the N word in a deposition. I have kept quiet about both waiting to see what the evidence is.. With Treyvon.. I just don't know. I know a child died who didn't deserve it. But does that mean George Zimmerman in a murder or was he standing up for himself? I am just glad I am not one of the jurors trying to figure that out. Paula Dean makes me sad. Because she was honest in a deposition about using a hate word many many years ago and now she is loosing everything. I think its a bit much because I know all of us has said something wrong. It seems to me that its a Witch Hunt and I think the media is blowing it way out of proportion. he That's just my personal opinion..

    Curtains, drapes, blinds...your window treatment of choice? Are there any bare windows in your house? Is that by choice or because you just haven't gotten around to covering them?

    Well we rent. And I have bought curtains for the houses.. I still have them but I don't really like to invest in expensive curtains.The last house had really nice blinds.. and now in the new house... they still have really nice blinds. If I lived in a place where I didn't have neighbors.. I might want a living room of all windows but not my bedroom! We do have those long vertical blinds on our sliding glass doors and I hate them. I am going to put a different track with some curtains very soon. 

Summertime is officially here (in the Northern hemisphere anyway)....what one song is a must-have on your summer playlist?

I am pretty much going blank with this question! So for me.. its probably the top 20 hits! 

Insert your own random thought here. 

We made it through moving hell week and are in the new house. Its pretty damn big and hard to get use to. The house has twists and turns upstairs. Its weird. The boys bathroom is kinda hidden. Everything still feels strange here but we are slowly adjusting. Jackson is gone now.. so its just Brittany and Zane here with us. We have a lot of upcoming plans... and in just a bit we are going to the YMCA for a while and swim. I can't normally do over 2 hours at a time but the kids are fine with that! I am thinking I will try to do some laps. Then back home to make dinner and do some online work. Ohhhh and this pretty guy..

 is getting neutered you know hes not going to be happy. He's getting a bath and blow dry tonight before his big appointment. I do plan on doing another Ask the Housewife post soon where I will explain in detail.. but the cattery is closed down. Instead of starting with all our females.. we are fixing this guy first and then Rocco next. Once the males are done...we won't worry so much! We are keeping them all apart...which isn't easy. He comes back home tomorrow too but I bet he is going to be sore! 

I hope you have a great day!

  1. I hope your son enjoys the time spent with his dad. I'm sure it's hard to have him away for such a long stretch, but hopefully it will be good for everyone. Happy New Home!

    I hope your son has a good time with his Dad. It must be hard for you to have one of your chicks out of the nest for a while.

  3. Your cat's face is so crabby looking and cute. :-) Good thing he doesn't know what's coming! That must be hard to have your son gone for so long. My boys went to their grandparents earlier today to spend the night and I already miss them. I hope your son has fun with his dad.
