Wednesday Hodgepodge

Well, don't faint and fall out but this is my second post in two days.  I mean, really!!! It's so good to join Joyce and the Hodgepodge today.  I guess my only excuse is lack of desire and life getting in the way.  But, I'm going to try to do better because I truly love blogging.  For now, I'll get on with today's HP questions.

1. "A daughter's a daughter all her life, but a son's a son til he takes a wife." What say you? Elaborate.

Our son

Our daughter

Well, for us, I'd have to say our son is still our son even though he has now been married almost 17 years.  His first devotion is to his family and that is as it should be but we have never felt that we lost our son when he married.  We gained a daughter in love. And, thankfully I have a great relationship with our DIL 

2. Something you've seen recently that was 'cuter than a June bug'

Our Andi Kate (youngest granddaughter)  just ended her second year of softball.  She played in the 8-9 year old league but is only 7.  She is quite the player and we had more fun watching her play and her CiCi laughed and cheered more than the law allows.  And, this little red haired girl was definitely "cuter than a June bug" in her uniform with her braided red hair.  BTW, she made the winning run for her team to win FIRST place in the league.

3. 'You can't buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream and that's pretty much the same thing.' Agree or disagree? Last time you had a serving of happiness ice cream?  Dish-cone-milkshake-sundae...which one do you choose? 

Well, not exactly.  I do like ice cream but I don't equate it to happiness but, on the rare occasion that I do eat it, I suppose it does make me happy. ~did that make any sense?~We have some of the best ice cream about 2 miles from our house at a little place called, "The Country Creamery."  I took one of the Gran girls over there the other night and we got cups of ice cream for all of us.  I've probably only been over there for ice cream a couple of times in the almost 7 years that we have lived here.  

4. What is one way/area in which you're currently 'swimming against the tide'? 

It appears I am definitely swimming against the tide politically.  I'll just leave it right there.

5. Three things you're looking forward to this summer?

Bridget and the boys will be arriving tomorrow for a few days visit.  So, that's the first thing on my list.

We have no big plans otherwise, but I have a really BIG birthday coming up the end of July and I haven't quite decided if I'm looking forward to it or not. ~big laugh~ There will be more about this later. ~hold tight~

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Bridget finished up her 20th year in the classroom this last school year.  She taught for the first 18 and was a Math Specialist the last 2.  About 2 1/2 years ago she decided that she wanted to get her doctorate in Math Education.~ like she needed one more thing to do~  They live very near Oklahoma State University so that is where she is pursing her Doctorate.  And, an opening came up for a Math Instructor in the Education Department for this coming school year and Bridget applied for it and got the job.  She is so excited and we are so excited for her.  This will make getting her doctorate a bit easier as far as being there on the campus. Right now she is projected to be Dr. Bridget Broome in 2025.  Needless to say, she is very passionate about Math and about teaching.

Today would have been my Mom's 92nd birthday.  It's hard for me to believe she left for her heavenly home 14 years ago.  This was one of her favorite Bible verses..........

  3. I was so excited to see your name in the "Linky" this morning. We are so proud of Bridget and all her accomplishments. She is special!

  6. Same for me on the tide but I will say, I often hear advice that says, "If everyone is heading one direction, you may want to go the other." So there is that...

  7. Your Mom's verse is one of my favorites too. She was a beautiful precious lady.

  8. Congratulations to Bridget for her accomplishments and her goals. Teaching full-time, raising 3 sons, working on her doctorate and all while being such an attractive woman. I am always impressed when you share with us about her.
