Hodge Podge Wednesday

1. May 17th is National Pack Rat Day. Sidebar-should we be celebrating this? Hmmm... 
Are you a pack rat? Even if you're not a full fledged pack rat, most people have one thing or another they struggle to part with. Tell us what's yours.

A few years ago we were in business for a bit with my brother. The business we were in is terrible for pack-rats. I can not say when we went into the resale business we were packrats but when we stopped we definitely were. I would have to say family items and my rag doll collection is a couple of things I will not let go of.

2. What are two things you know you should know how to do, but you don't?

I should know how to sew since both my daughters do, my mother does and my grandmothers both did. I somehow got left out of that. I should also know how to drive since all my children and many others around me know how to. At least I can say I know how to ask for a ride.

3. Do you crave sugar? Do you add sugar to your coffee and/or tea? Do you use artificial sweeteners or sugar substitutes? When dining out is dessert a given? Are you someone who has slain the sugar dragon, and if so tell us how you did it.

I don't crave sugar but I do like my drinks sweet unless it is a diet soda. The sweetner is one that I can do but the others seem bitter to me. Yes, I would say it depend on where we are at a nice sit down fancy place yep getting me a dessert.

4. What's a trend it took a while for you to come round to, but now you can't imagine living without?

There is really not a lot that I can think of right now. Recently we remodeled the kitchen and yes, it took a while to get used to it all but I love it now.

5. What's a song that reminds you of a specific incident in your life? Please elaborate.

Boys of fall help me recall sons highschool years, Jack and Diane helps me recall my high school years.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

Praising God for a new little baby niece. The other smiling face is that of my 9 year old niece
