Hodpodge Time

From this Side of the Pond

1.  In a rut, in a jam, in the groove, out of sync, off balance, out of touch...which saying best fits some area of your life currently (or recently)? Explain.

Off Balance.
I have some BIG things up in the air right now on where life is headed for me - all good stuff - no worries... & I'll be talking about it soon enough, but yeah. Life is totally off balance right now for me.
When I'm up at 4AM bright eyed because of wondering & worry & decision making? That's off balance. Dont mess with my sleep.

2. What is it about somebody else's style of work (coworker/employee/shared volunteer project/household chore) that makes you crazy? Why?

I am someone that needs sound around me.  Music, or a TV - just background noise. I dont really have to have it super loud. I keep my radio on at my desk so low that if i walk 5 steps away from my desk, you cant hear it - but when I'm sitting there, I can hear it.  I just hate total silence. I'm the only one in the office that uses a radio & I dont understand how everyone does it.

Yep... this is probably me

3. What's a tradition that always makes you feel at home?

I think I'm way over thinking this question.... because I'm like, "Tradition? Like something that always happens?"... & "Feel at home? Like comfortable - or you mean, like a kid feeling at home again?" Or it is talking about is there something you do when you move that is a tradition that makes it feel like home?  But people dont move that often.... Or is it talking about if you're traveling & do you do something while you're away from home to feel like home.... or is it talking about what i do every day when I get home that makes me feel finally relaxed?  I'M SO CONFUSED!!!!

See answer #1 - I'm just off balance right now

4. A favorite song with a girl's name in the title or lyrics? Any reason why this is a particular favorite?

The first thing that came to mind - a song by KISS... my husband would be so proud.
But Ricky let me know - the original song was supposed to be called BECK - because it was written about a guitarist wife named Becky & he & Peter Criss wrote that song... but they thought Beth sounded better in song so they changed it.... but Ricky will still sing it to me as BECK ;)

The more you know ..... insert flying rainbow.....

5. Share a favorite quote, verse, or saying relating to gratitude or thanksgiving.

6. Insert your own random thought here

I'm starting to give up on some shows.
I've stopped watching How to get Away with Murder... & I gave up Designated Survivor... & I'm teetering on the edge of not caring about Scandal either (I reallllly dont like evil Olivia Pope)... my DVR is thankful.

But I'm not giving up on my Survivor, The Walking Dead, This is Us & of course, Dancing with the Stars!

What TV show is a MUST WATCH for you right now/


  1. Can't wait to hear about the new things in your life. Even making decisions about "good" change can be scary!
    I am savoring every episode of The Middle right now since it is the last!

  2. I'm the same way in terms of working with some sort of noise!! I have an inkling of these new things but I'm excited for you! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. I don't like evil Olivia either!! I told my husband that last week. Hope you have a great week and all the wonderful things up in the air come to fruition.

  4. GIRL! I've been up since 2AM! Gonna be a long day for sure! I remember Kiss's Beth! And I quit watching TV a long time ago. Still stuck on This Is Us and American Housewife though! Have a great day!

  5. Sorry not familiar with any of those shows. I stick to British mysteries, mostly those set in the past, not contemporary. Hope you find your balance. Chuckled at your answer about overthinking the question. :-))

  6. Good luck with the decision making! It is always tough!! I understand, sleep is not good to part with! I like having background noise as well. :) XO - Alexandra

  7. I'm behind times ... just watched my first episode of Scandal a couple weeks ago and wasn't really impressed. Maybe it'd be better if I started at the beginning? I tell my co-workers if I didn't have music on, I'd have to talk to myself ... and then I'll get into arguments and they won't want that to happen. :)

  8. I embarrassingly must admit I haven't watched The Walking Dead for over 2 years. I'm SO behind. I have them all recorded but I just can't seem to get motivated enough to watch them.

  9. Sorry to hear things are off balance right now but happy to hear it's for good things :) Fingers crossed that it works out just like you want it to!

  10. I feel a bit off balance too. I think it's this time of year for me and knowing the freezing cold weather that's coming around the corner. I miss my sunny beach days. I am losing interest in Scandal as well. There are certain things that have really been turning me off from it. Sierra ~ Beautifully Candid

  11. #3 girl you are cracking me up! But yes, I agree, no good when sleep is taken away :( Praying for wisdom right now!

  12. Who is your favorite on DWTS? I can't say I'm sad the Lachey's are gone, especially the Mrs. We are loving The Good Doctor right now. Hope your decisions are made and rest returns. Have a happy Wednesday!

  13. I hope your balance is restored soon - that is a hard way to live, even if it's all good stuff.

  14. HTGAWM is ridiculous at this point. But I keep watching. Not sure why.

    I always need sound around me when I'm working, too.

    I am horribly off balance right now, too, and I hope yours is restored soon because living sideways isn't fun at all.

  15. I'm super hopeful that the upcoming changes mean a job with health care coverage for you!

  16. Better days are ahead my friend. I hope the changes are for the better. I too don't like to be in total silence. I always have music on in the background.

  17. I can't wait to hear the news about where life is headed for you! Sounds exciting! KISS, oh my did that bring back some memories. When I was 18 I dated a guy who played the drums for a cover band for KISS. They dressed up in full costume and played locally. I hadn't heard that song in a long time! I'm becoming unhappy with Designated Survivor too. Maybe because all the characters do the same thing week after week, she fights alone, he stops a worldwide threat, he feels neglected... I loved it in the beginning but now, meh. Hope you have a good week!

  18. We quit How to Get Away With Murder in the first season, I am not quite sure how you have gone on this long lol. And UGHHH to evil Olivia. I know, same here. Chris and I were just discussing that we don't like her at all anymore after the last episode we watched. Since it is the last season I am sticking with it though. I guess I will just be less sad that the show is going away haha.

    Feeling off balance and having decisions weighing on you can be rough stuff. Sending you some hugs and prayers for clarity :)

  19. I am dying at the Twerk at Work thing because I feel like I sometimes do that. No one can see me unless they walk by. But I need some sort of music or something around me at work as well. I haven't seen Scandal or Getting Away with Murder. I love This is Us though. I still want to start Walking Dead too.

  20. We have given up on Scorpion and Blacklist. I understand where you are coming from!! I enjoyed your HP!!

  21. Hoping you can reveal your big changes soon...feeling off balance isn't fun. It always makes me feel like I'm wasting time.

    The only show I really anticipated this fall was Shameless. I can binge Jane, and Riverdale, and etc when it all comes to Netflix.

  22. Hope you get your balance back soon. I like your song choice. I also like the verse you shared.

  23. I stopped watching Survivor, at least this season anyway. So far I. Ok with this decision. I keep hearing about This is Us. I need to check that one out, I guess. My can’t miss shows are NCIS and Bull.

  24. If your life has to be off balance in some way, shape, or form I'm glad it's for GOOD changes. Praying for ya, girl friend!
    I love the "girl in a song title" question. So unique!
    Sometimes you've just gotta give up on the shows that aren't cutting it.
