Adventures in Blogging: Hodgepodge Wednesday Vol. 92

1. In your opinion what's the most important job in the world? Oh, and parenting is a given so besides parenting, what's the most important job in the world?
Teachers. Where would we be without our teachers? Enough said, right!?

2. Share a favorite or not so favorite memory from a childhood birthday.
When I was 16 we went on a family vacation to celebrate my birthday to the Florida Keys. It was a super fun trip! Opposite of that, when I was in elementary school, I had the chicken pox over my birthday one year. I think I was 7... right, mom? 

3. Peanut butter-crunchy or smooth?
It kind of depends on what I am eating - PB&J sandwich is smooth, but on a banana I would go with crunchy!

4. William Butler Yeats is credited as saying, "Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth, We are happy when we are growing." Your thoughts?
So philosophical! I'm not totally sure I understand the whole quote, but honestly I am not always happy during growing experiences. They can be painful and challenging. AFTER the growing, happiness comes. 

5. What's something that makes you cringe?
Seeing people get hurt. Either physically or emotionally. I don't really like reality TV because I cringe when people are being mean to each other. And you know those Funniest Home Videos clips where the guy gets hit with the baseball bat, or the kid falls off their bike - I am cringing way more that I am laughing. 

6. Name a song that always puts you in a good mood?
Oh, that list is LOOOOOONG. I love music and I associate so many songs with good memories. Picking one, right now, 
Sweet Home Alabama (pretty much any of the versions!)

7. The answer is yes. What's the question?
Am I ready for cooler autumn weather?!! (YES!)

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Do you like getting real mail? Check out the Adventures in Encouragement to see how you can get some real encouraging mail!


  1. Oh I'm with you on #5! So glad you played along today : )

  2. I loved your comment. I really made me giggle. That and the fact you eat / drink healthy as well. It's hard to find others with that common interest and stick to it. You officially have a new follower.

  3. I'll answer YES to that question about Fall too :)

    off to check out the encouragement idea! :)

  4. Yay for teachers! Boo for chicken pox on your birthday.
    Thanks for stopping by, and make it a great Wednesday!

  5. I agree teachers also have the most important jobs, and doctors too! Yes i hate to see people getting hurt especially people who crash on their bikes or skateboards. OUCH :( hmm i'm not ready for the fall weather, i am a summer weather kind of gal. ;)

  6. Lots of teacher answers today, I think it's a good one.
    That's a great song, I do enjoy that one.
    I love warm weather but this year has been brutal.

  7. My Dad was a teacher and he was so well loved. I heard from so many of his former students when he passed. One man wrote a heartfelt letter, saying my Dad had helped to straighten him out, and keep him out of jail. Yes, teaching is a very important career.

  8. I will look at that blog, sounds encouraging! Love that song as well. Great choice. I will miss the heat, but fall is truly coming our way.
