Wednesday Hodgepodge

It's time for the Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Go see Joyce and link up ~ you know you want to!

1. What is something that bothers you if it is not done perfectly?
Oddly enough, folding towels.  Some people fold in half and then in half again, I do not.  The proper way to fold a towel in my house is in half and then in thirds.  Hubby has not mastered this and bless his heart when he helps me fold laundry I always re-fold the towels.  I know, I probably need professional help for this problem. 

2. What is one of your best childhood memories?
This is a hard question for me to answer because there are so many to choose from.  Honestly, I just remember having the best time when we were kids.  I think my favorite memories were when my parents used to surprise us by just putting us in the car and taking us places.  My sister and I would be in the back seat trying to guess where we were going.  Mom and Dad would talk in code to each other and Sis and I tried to crack the code ~ usually unsuccessfully, but it was fun trying.  We could end up at our favorite restaurant or at Disney World.  One never knew what they had planned and that was part of the fun of it.

3. Do you plan to watch the Royal Wedding and when was the last time you wore a hat?
I might record the wedding and watch it when I have the time.  I haven't decided yet.  I wore a hat several Easters ago.

4. Where do you fall in the birth order in your family? Do you think this has influenced your personality?
I am the oldest child and the oldest grandchild on one side.  I do think I am more of a leader in our family.  I also tend to be a people pleaser, also a trait of first borns. 

5. Where do you think you spend most of your money?
I know where most of our money goes.  House payment, followed by tuition for the kids' school, then Publix ~ where shopping is a pleasure.

6. When you need to confront someone would you rather communicate in person, on the phone, by email or by letter? Why?
Let me start by saying that I strongly dislike confrontation.  I used to be the type who wanted to confront in a letter, not having to face the person.  While I don't like having to confront people, I would now rather do it in person so that there is no misunderstanding.  In letters and emails, people can misinterpret tone of voice or what you are saying.  At least in person you get it all out there and can be understood and then it's done.  I'm still working on this, and it is uncomfortable, but end the end I want it to be resolved and over and with a personal conversation you can do that.

7. Dodge ball, freeze tag, kickball or jump rope? You have to pick one.
Dodge ball.  Such fond memories of playing this in elementary school.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Last week I mentioned that I was hoping the House Cleaning Fairy would come to my house while I was at work.  Unfortunately, that didn't work out so well.  However, Monday I had to work and the kiddos were off of school so Hubby volunteered to stay home from work with them.  When I got home he had done dishes, laundry and mopped the kitchen.  He is all that and a side of grits!  I've said it before, there is nothing sexier than a man cleaning my house.


  1. You and I would get along when it comes to folding towels. I'm a re-folder too : ) I agree with you on a man cleaning house!

  2. Totally agree with number 8! But I doubt he would want to be called the house cleaning fairy. :)

  3. I guess the cleaning fairy did visit - yay! LOVE that! I am now following your blog, if you'd like to follow me back, that'd be great. Blessings!

  4. LOL on #8. Is it any man cleaning your house or just the hubby? ;)

    Enjoyed all of your answers. :)

  5. Your husband cleaned your house! Now that's a keeper! : )

  6. So sorry about the house fairy. She came to my house first - had a stroke and died on the spot.

    I agree - the only thing better than a man cleaning house is a man cooking supper (which is what mine is doing right now :-D

  7. Auburn chick ~ you crack me up. I guess I should clarify that it's just my hubby, not any man.
    Donna ~ you are a lucky duck. My hubby worked late tonight. You also had me laughing with the house fairy having a stroke at your house.

  8. Hi! Thanks for pointing out that my GFC was missing! I don't know how that happened but I have put it back...would love for you to come back over and follow me. Blessings!
