The Procrastinating Hodgepodge

There are so many other things I need to do, but since I don't want to do them right now, I'm sneaking away to do the Hodgepodge. Seven questions and a random thought. How long could it take? Actually considerably longer if you click on the link to go read everyone else's answers. But that's up to you. Just remember to comment on mine since you're already here. After all, I'm using up gift wrapping time, here!

1. Share your Christmas Eve traditions.
Well, I guess I could, but wouldn't you rather have your own? We seem to do something different every year. The one thing Indiana is adamant about is that presents will be opened on Christmas morning and not on Christmas Eve. Even when our children were very small, and would not go to sleep until the wee hours of the morning for all the excitement. Even then we couldn't open presents. No, we had to wait until morning. But I got even. We used to sit up half the night waiting to open presents. Now we sit up half the night after the kids go to bed wrapping presents. Ha! Whose laughing now?

2. What was the best book you read in 2010? (we're not going to include The Bible here)
I've read many books. Some I liked and some I didn't. I can't remember any of them at the moment. (I can barely remember my name at the moment.)

3. Do you have pets and if so do you allow them on the furniture?
We have two cats, Dex and Drizzle, and one dog with an attitude. The cats are allowed on the furniture, but the dog isn't. Officially this is because the cats are smaller and more well-behaved. Unofficially it's because the dog doesn't like me, and because the cats wouldn't be trained, but the dog would. Ha! Whose laughing now?

4. What event from 2010 are you most thankful for?
 I survived it. At least, so far.

5. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before.
I lost forty-three pounds. (Isn't it amazing how that comes up in casual conversation?)

6. Brussel sprouts...friend or foe?
They've never done anything to me. On the other hand, they've never done anything for me, either. I'm gonna say foe.

7. Who would you nominate for man/woman of the year?
I'm gonna go with the person that invented the Christmas cookie. And sprinkles.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Sprinkles are happiness in a jar. Open 'em up and let your smiles out!


  1. Sprinkles are happiness in a jar. Hope you and yours have a very blessed Christmas and enjoy your company and your cookies. I'm sure you look fabulous, wish I could lose 43 pounds.

  2. I did not know you had such a deep love for sprinkles!
    Congrats on the 43 pounds!! That is awesome!

  3. Congratulations on the 43 pounds! I know from experience how hard that is to do!

  4. I am that way with books. I think that is why I can watch movies over and over again too! The weight loss is awesome, I think you sent it to me. Really, congratulations on that!
    Have a wonderful Christmas.

  5. I mean you know you're going to be up half the night anyway so what's five minutes of Hodgepodge compared to that? Glad you played along-have a wonderful Christmas with your family and future dil!

  6. I wondered where you were Wednesday! Love your answers - WOW! 43 pounds?! I need to do that.

    Love your sprinkles saying.

    Merry Christmas!

  7. Your #7 and #8 made me laugh.

    Merry Christmas!

  8. The sprinkle inventor is definitely a worthy suggestion for person of the year!


Well don't just stand there! Say something! : )
