I always look forward to Wednesday's Hodgepodge. It is a true time when I am forced to sit and reflect on stuff ....some silly....some not. Hope you enjoy reading my responses.
1. What three words would you use to describe 2010?
busy, sad, prayerful-
2. If fear were not an issue what is something you'd like to try?
With or without the fear issue....there is really nothing I would like to try that I haven't already tried.
3. What do you add to your coffee or tea?
Coffee - fake sugar and some kind of creamer (I truly like the flavored ones); tea - lemon or lime if it is iced. Honey if it is hot`.
4. What historical sporting event would you like to witness?
None....I don't care about watching sports on television....if I could be there...probably the year the dream team hockey team won the gold medal in the Olympics. I think that would have been fun.
5. What is one piece of advice you would like to give your sixteen year old self?
You truly are somebody....believe it.
6. Are you a planner or do you prefer to fly by the seat of your pants?
I am a planner....but I have flown by the seat of my pants a time or two, especially when I was being observed and ran out of stuff to do in class....my creative self came out and we had a ball....one of the best performance observations I have ever gotten.
7. What is one thing you are looking forward to in 2011? Meeting my bloggy buddy Mary
8. Insert your own random thought here.
What is the one thing you would like a do-over in life on?
Some of my kids asked me if they could have a do-over on their final yesterday...it was really hard not to just burst into mad laughter when I looked into their sincere, sweet, little faces. Do-over? Muwwwwahhhhhh.....there is no such thing in life. Once something is done....it is done. When I got home last night I got to thinking about do-overs...and what would I do-over if I could....and I decided that if I could do something over...it would be finishing up with college before having children......I would be retired with 36 years at the end of this year....instead of 56 with 4 years to go to 25. Sigh...oh the choices we make.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
