HODGIN', PODGIN', HUMPIN' & DUMPIN'


1. If you could work for any one government agency which would you choose and why? (if you're in the US here's a helpful listWhy? 

National Weather Service
...I want to stand in front of a 'green screen' and play with all the 'computerized' weather predictors


2. How difficult is it for you to forgive someone who refuses to apologize?
My brain doesn't want to wrap around this one...it depends on who the someone is and how close I am to them. God convicts me and pardons them most of the time, hahaha.


3. What is your favorite meatless supper?
Hummus with sweet peppers/whole grain pita chips

4. Wednesday August 10th is National Lazy Day...will you be celebrating? If so, tell us how so we can be lazy too.  
My National Lazy Day celebrating has never been acknowledged...but today's lazy will last as long as my blogging time...then on to the rest of the day.


5. As a child did you have any special back to school traditions and if so, what were they? If you're a parent did you carry on those traditions with your own children?
Back-to-school traditions at my house included a lunchbox and new clothes that Mother made. For my kids, we'd fulfill the list provided by the school, usually get some new shoes and jeans...then I'd bore her by getting a 'school' picture while getting on the bus...she REALLY didn't like that her senior year.

6. Write a summer tongue twister.  
Skoot skillfully shopping for school stuff soon-to-be shuffling schedules and skyping

7. Would you be interested in observing a surgery or do you turn away when the nurse brings out the needle?
Don't like feeling needles but not scared of them; I wanted to watch as they put stitches in my foot one time but didn't let myself watch...I chickened out. I do watch surgeries on TV though.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
TODAY is HUMP day...
a day that I need a LAFF...
...'cause my body decided to wake up at 6:30am as if I had some reason to wake up at 6:30am

...'cause my car is exhausted from having driven around the world and back again yesterday  dropped off/picked up/payed for skoot's auto repairs and all the way downtown and back for MORE furniture

...'cause my body got a glance at what moving day will be like carrying furniture/boxes up a flight of stairs dreading the three flights of stairs awaiting us in the T'town 95% humidity and 95-degree weather

...'cause the opportunity to talk with Skoot about life, politics and our economy while enjoying bumper-to-bumper traffic en route to IKEA (35 miles away)      

...'cause maybe Skoot will miss me when she's back in CollegeTown remembering  what Summer fun was had me and her Daddy because of our hilarious personalities she had access to OUR credit card

Mama's Losing It  posted this today
...it fulfilled my 'laff' need
...watch it and tell me if it hits your funny bone, too:



I REALLY needed to laff today and this DID it!  


I remember those 'young kids' days of chasing, cleaning up, and 'trying-to-keep-them busy'.  Mama's Losing It cracks me up "hiding" in her hat

...reminds me of Susannah Wesley throwing her apron over her head for 'prayer time'...same thing, kinda!

...I will REALLY miss my Skoot after she's back in CollegeTown.  
She's very eager to get there and reacquaint herself to her we're paying for it all FULL independence, hahahah.  
Just poking a little fun her way.  

What things do you want to type and cross out?


Jer. 33:3 "Call to me and I will answer you
and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."

Oh I don't envy you the move in the heat. I did the same last weekend...got home Sunday night and I am almost recovered. Almost. : ) Good luck!

Mama Kat said...

Wow! Thanks for adding my video to your daily laff today. :)

Amiee said...

Oh, I could NOT watch if I had to get stitches. I can't even watch when my girls have to get a shot :(

Cathy said...

You have a greast tongue twister too. I take my daughter back to school in 2 weeks. She can't wait and neither can I because we're taking a vacation while we're at it. haha Fortunately, this year she's on the ground floor, so that will be easier.

Loved #6! I don't mind watching if I feel no pain. Good luck with move in that heat!

I work with the weather people and they don't get to do the green screens. Only the fancy tv weather people do. Life of a NWS employee pales in comparison to the big money tv weather dudes.

I can remember trying to hide behind something...anything! Of course, now I would give anything to have those days back!

Charming's Mama said...

Okay that video cracked me up. Can I hide too, please, pretty please? Your #6 very good, will she we using your credit card?

Thanks for stopping by today.

We all need a good laugh in the midst of craziness... yes, this was funny. How often I should laugh with my kids instead of default to misery!
