8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Hodge Podge - Vol 92

Here are Joyce's, this week's Hodgepodge questions and my responses. If you've been here before then you know the drill. If you're new to the HP then, welcome! Answer the questions on your own blog then hop back here, read mine, then click here and link answers with the rest of the blogging world. 
Okay, here we go....
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?  This one is tough....many jobs play off others....teachers, nurses, firefighters, police would be a few I would choose. 

2. Share a favorite or not so favorite memory from a childhood birthday.  On my 13th birthday at Verdes Bowling Alley I was allowed to invite 13 people and each one gave me baby doll pajamas.  On my 40th birthday my first husband invited a group of our friends for supper. He was going to grill was a surprise for me.  He fished a bass tournament that day....and won...instead of being home at 3 when he was supposed to get the food prepared for 30 people.....he did not get home until after 6....towing a new bass boat.....with no card or gift for me.  I ended up cooking for the guests and we had eaten by the time he finally got all his stuff put away.  It was not the best day in my life...but one I was used to.

3. Peanut butter-crunchy or smooth?   Smooth. since I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Collitis I can't have nuts.

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?  I am happiest when I am learning and growing. 

5. What's something that makes you cringe?  That is easy....blood.  Well and passing semi trucks on the interstate...with them on my side of the car.

6. Name a song that always puts you in a good mood?  Testify to Love by Avalon.  It makes me want to skip.

7. The answer is yes. What's the question?  Have you worked a fire call yet?  Yep, last night.

8. Insert your own random thought here.    Today is Be Late For Something Day.  Are you always on time?  early?  or perpetually late?  I have some friends that we tell them 1 hour ahead of when something is starting so they will be on time.  Never fails there is always one in the crowd.  Are you that one?

I am one of those people who show up a little early- only about 5-10 minutes early--to nearly everything. I can't stand being late. Cannot stand it. As far as your response to #2- I can think of a few things I would have done with that new boat. LOL

Lots of teacher answers today. See how important you are? Yes Semi trucks make me cringe too! I am almost always on time or early. We are going to a wedding in Illinois and I keep thinking my daughter will be the one not ready. Bugs me!

I cringe when passing semis too! I am an early girl - a teacher once told my that being early is on-time and being on-time is late. I really hate being late and will do almost anything to avoid it :)

I'm not a fan of blood, either. Whenever I have my blood drawn, I have to turn my head. I can't bear the sight of it!

I think I would have sold that boat and had a Big Birthday Bash in a tropical location. Hopefully the next birthday was better!
I too like to be early, something I learned from my Mother. I hate being late. My daughter has not received that message, she gets in no hurry and pushes it to the last second. She is getting better, but is not there just yet.

Queenie Jeannie said...

I am NOT that one, lol!!! If I'm late, call the ambulance because something horrible has happened to me!!!

I haven't been by in a long while - LOVING your new blog look!!!!

Cannot do blood. Unless as a Mom I have to. But yeah, not a fan.

I am an on time kind of girl too. I hate to be late for anything!
