Day 15

It's Wednesday Hodgepodge Time!

I've been out of the hodgepodge game for a couple of weeks, but I'm jumping back in today.
Here's the lowdown-- Joyce asks the questions, we supply the answers.

If that's too complicated for you, then you should consider getting some more education instead of reading my blog.

1. It is officially fall here in North America...I realize not everyone who participates in the Hodgepodge lives in North America but if you do, what's your favorite memory of Summer 2011? If you're not in North America, what's your favorite memory of the season just ending on your side of the world?

It's fall? Tell that to 85 degrees with 1,000% humidity. 

(Yes, I know that's mathematically impossible. But you should see my hair.)

I think my favorite memories from this summer are the times we spent at the pool as a family. We know that we will not always live in a neighborhood with a community pool, so I think that we relish it even more.

2. Your favorite nut? You know I mean the edible kind, right?

The kind that's hidden in the middle of my Almond Joy.

(I suppose that would make it an almond.)

3. What activity puts your sense of balance to the test?
Getting out of bed in the morning. It's stressful, but it has to be done.

4. How would you describe your sense of humor?

Sarcastic with a splash of cruel. 

5. September 28th is National Ask a Stupid Question Day...what's your stupid question?

Josh, can you come home now?

6. Roller skates~hula hoop~jump rope...which activity would you most enjoy? Yes, you have to choose.

I have a weighted hula hoop that I use occasionally when I'm watching TV. One of these days I'm just going to hula my love-handles away. 

Stay tuned for when that actually happens. 

7. What's your most sentimental possession?

I've been thinking about this for a while.
I got nothin'.

I'm not a very sentimental person to start with, and I don't own any family heirlooms or anything very valuable.
Though if we keep this TV any longer, it might become vintage.

8. Insert your own random thought here. 
This morning I went with my good friend Ashley to her 20-week ultrasound appointment. Her hubby is away at an Air Force school for 6 months, so I got the honor of being with her to hear the big news! (I wont say what she's having since she hasn't had time to share with all her friends & family yet.)
Other than making a few inappropriate jokes about how we looked like partners and that I was going to be taken as the man of the relationship, I was on my best behavior. 
It was the same room that I was in when we found out that we were having our little guy. Fun times. 
Congrats Thomas family on a precious baby ______!

Joyce said...

Your sense of humor is most definitely intact! The ultrasounds are so amazing now...I didn't even have one with my second.

Your stupid question is full of sentimentality. Just sayin' : )

Feels like summer here, also. Enjoyed reading.

Susan said...

Love your answers. And could I borrow that hula hoop when you're done with it?

Taylor said...

I have one of those hula hoops! Lets use it together! Bonding!

Sandy said...

"Sarcastic with a splash of cruel", mind if I borrow that phrase sometime?

Amiee said...

My Mom has one of those hula hoops, and it gave her bruises on her sides :/

I need to be a little less sentimental. Maybe then I could have a clutter-free house?

I love that pic of your hubby throwing your son up in the air. My Hubs liked to do that with the girls :)

I asked your "stupid" question a lot in the last 7 months. It's not stupid. And eventually it gets answered with "Yes babe, I'm coming home!" Love ya girl...
