Hodgepodge... you ready for some 1990 pics!


Joining with Joyce 

1. We're in to a season students call 'spring break'. Did you/your family travel over spring breaks when you were growing up?  Tell us something about a 'spring break' you remember (from childhood or adulthood, either one). 

My family never did travel during Spring Break.  My dad was a factory worker & we only got a vacation during the fall - that is if we could afford a trip even then ... but ironically, the fall is when I still take off at work myself.  Family legacy travels down the line. 

I do remember traveling with my friend & her family during my Senior Year to around the Myrtle Beach area.  It was VERY memorable.  I went with one of my best friends & her little sister brought one of her friends. It was a girls trip as their mom had to go down for, I believe, business. I can remember one evening we went to the movie theater & watched Pretty Woman too.  Anytime I hear the song, "It Must have been Love" by Roxette... ALL THE MEMORIES!

Look at how tan I was!!!
& those black sandals came back in style!
& do you know, I STILL have that Mickey Mouse shirt!

2. Last thing you broke? Was it a big deal? 

My fingernails... I've on a kick where my nails are just trash. They wont grow, they're like paper, they bend & crack & break at any sort of activity. I dont get it. I've been trying different strength polishes... nothing is working.  Anyone know any tricks to get them back in shape?

3. March 7th is National Cereal Day...are you a fan? What's your favorite? If not cereal what's your favorite breakfast? Your typical breakfast? 

...... why..... WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY is this question on the day I try to come back to Hodgepodge?

If you know anything about me - or if you're new around these parts... nope. NOPE -NOPEEEE!  Its called "The C-word" to me because I cant even talk about it... I can smell it now... & I'm really gagging...

My typical breakfast... usually an egg of some form. On a english muffin, or a breakfast burrito...its about the only protein I get in a day. Sadly.

4. Break ground, break of dawn, break down, break the bank, break one's stride, break the ice, break a law, break a habit, break bread...choose one of the idioms listed and tell us how it applies to your life currently. 

Why does "break down" feel appropriate lately in these crazy days?

& whose going to say "Break a law" ... I need to find people that say that & hear these stories!

I feel like "break the bank" is appropriate lately. I've been watching my budget - started a budget planner. & WOW... I sure like to spend money. & lately, I just cant stop buying books. Like, the struggle is really REAL.  Why cant things just be free?

5. Where do you go to connect with friends and family? What do you like to do most when you're home alone? 

Go to connect with friends & family?... I'm confused. Family - its just random. Usually someone is visiting - or we connect on social media- or texts - just every day stuff ...friends? You'll usually find us in a coffee shop or out for lunch.

Me at home & what I like to do? ... a book in hand.  Easy answer! & with the warmer air coming in soon - a book in the hand while I'm outside! COME ON BABY!!!!

6. Insert your own random thought here.

Can you believe we're turning the clock back this weekend?  I struggle so hard with the time change. Like, it takes me a full week of adapting to losing an hour's sleep. Maybe this year, it wont be as bad. I mean, I'm now fully in the habit of waking up every 3 hours with Zoe - my sleep patterns are just nightmarish.  Hopefully it wont be too severe on me this year.

But GLORY! HALLELUJAH! PRAISE! We have more light at night. I cant even begin to express my joy in that. Every time we get through winter - I feel like I've ran a ultramarathon & I crossed the finish line. WE DID IT!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
