It's Wednesday again, must be time for the Hodgepodge, and I'm sure you know by now that it's seven questions and one random thought and I figured I wasn't too lazy to participate today so here goes.
I took one look at that list and was appalled. No wonder our government is so deeply in debt. And I was too lazy to look at the whole thing and pick something, probably because I have no desire to work for our government.
2. How difficult is it for you to forgive someone who refuses to apologize?
Gosh, if I refused to forgive I would be a mess. I have known plenty of stubborn people who have hung on to a hurt for years and it has made them a not very nice person. Forgiveness frees me from anger, pain, resentment, bitterness and all the heartache that comes from holding a grudge.
3. What is your favorite meatless supper?
Growing up if there wasn't meat on the table and a dessert to be had my father said it wasn't a meal. However there were those rare occasions when we would have coffee cake and/or popcorn for supper. Mom usually let us make it ourselves and I have fond memories of doing so.
Today I would have to say macaroni and cheese ( I'm not talking Kraft here people) with a side salad or better yet a fresh picked garden tomato still warm from the sun on a sandwich with mayonnaise, a little salt and pepper, maybe lettuce, a slice of cheese and a great big dill pickle. Yum. Now if only I had me some bacon.
4. Wednesday August 10th is National Lazy Day ... will you be celebrating? If so, tell us how so we can be lazy too.
Really, I never knew there was such a thing. Somehow I think that many of us don't need an excuse to shirk our responsibilities. Must be run by a government agency. Anyway if I had the time and money I would love, Love, LOVE a spa day. Pretty sure that won't happen so I guess I will have to settle for a pedicure. But. . . can't really afford that either. So maybe I'll just sit on the couch, eat bon bon's and watch soap operas. ;~)
5. As a child did you have any special back to school traditions and if so, what were they? If you're a parent did you carry on those traditions with your own children?
I can remember going shopping with my Mom for new jeans and fabric so she could make me new clothes, other than that I think she was just glad to get us out the door (there were 8 of us).
My boys are still little and not yet in school. Well, HT is going to go to preschool again this year but only for 2 1/2 hours, 3 days a week. At this age he really doesn't need much.
6. Write a summer tongue twister.
I'm too lazy, you write one.
7. Would you be interested in observing a surgery or do you turn away when the nurse brings out the needle?
I have fainted at the sight of my own blood. Does that answer your question?
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Even though I made light of working for the government above I have a very beautiful, intelligent niece who is working as a liaison for the state department in a place that is anti-American and no respecter of women. Please say a prayer for her.

Okay for some reason I can't get the button to work and I'm too lazy to figure out why so click here instead.
