Wednesday Hodgepodge

I am going to try something new and join in with Joyce and her Hodgepodge questions today. 

Happy Halfway Through Wednesday!

1. When was the last time you relocated? Did you move yourself or leave it to the professionals? Are you happy staying put or is there a move in your future?
I have been in my same condo for the past 8 years! That is so surprising to me. I honestly cannot believe it has been that long. Every move I have ever done was with the help of my poor family. They lug dressers and beds and TV's like champs! Actually, we always help move each;s a family thing I guess. I am staying put now I think...who knows what the future will bring but right now my plans are to stay put and follow Gods will - LOL.

2. When were you last moved to tears? Explain.
I cried about a month ago when I had to put my adorable cat Angelica to sleep. Here is the post - It was so horrible and I can not even begin to explain the grief I felt for days (weeks)!

3. Do you have rules about eating in the car...any forbidden foods? What's the last thing you consumed in your car?
This question is great! Up until last night, nope! Eating anything was fair smoothies, stinky fast food, coffee...  The last think I ate in my car was a Egg White Delight. But now, NO!!! I just went and picked up my new car!!! It is a Civic Si and there is definitely no eating or drinking (or breathing LOL) allowed in that car! 

4. Share a favorite song relating to cars and/or driving.

I love the song by the Cars "Who's Gonna Drive You Home Tonight". It reminds me of when I was young and we used to drive up and down the strip at South Park, PA hanging out with kids from school and meeting kids from other schools! Great memories of being a teenager and fearless!

5. What's your most frequently visited drive-thru...Starbucks? the bank? the pharmacy? some other window?

Absolutely Starbucks!!! I live there! I get cashback at the grocery store for my cash so no need for an ATM any more (I call it the MAC machine by the way - which shows how old I am).

6. "He who hesitates is lost"...would you agree? When it comes to making decisions do you generally act quickly or do you more often than not fall into the 'lost' category?
I actually make decisions wayyyyy to quick and never think things through - I am working on that though! I am using Retreat - Rethink - React. I think it is working??? HA

7. When was the last time you got lost? Was it stressful or an unexpected happy adventure?

I get lost all the time. I love traveling anywhere anytime and I just use my iPhone's GPS so getting lost is often in my life.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Within the past month...I have gotten new windows and doors, a new cars and two new kittens - I need to stop spending money for a while!!! WOWSA!!

I cant wait to read everyone's answers!!!


  1. Two new kitties! Great! They will have each other to hang with...and it's got to be fun for you to watch them play together. Enjoy your new car - and have many, many safe miles!

    1. The kittens are definitely enjoying each other - my older cat Kidrock will eventually enjoy their company too (or so I keep telling myself) HA!

  2. Congrats on the new car! I'm sorry for the loss of your kitty. Loss of pets are so hard on us since they're just like family to us. I'm sure you'll enjoy the new kitties!

    1. It was really sad - thanks for your condolences - that means a lot. I saw your blog and my Angelica looked a lot like your black and white kitties...any my Kidrock still does! Animals bring so much joy and love!

  3. I sometimes still say MAC too : ) I'm sorry about your kitty, and understand pet grief well. We just recently had to put our sweet pup down, unexpectedly and I still get teary eyed many times a day thinking about her. Thanks for joining the HP today!

    1. Thanks for your kind words and I am sorry for your loss too! Thanks for hosting!!!!!

  4. Welcome to this week's Hodgepodge,

    I'm an 80's girl too, so Drive by the Cars was one of my answers too.

    Sorry about your kitty.

    Hope you enjoy that new car. When I get a new one, I'll be the same way: no eating, drinking, smoking, chewing, dipping, cussing, or breathing--and I'm usually the only one in the car. :)

    1. LOL! I love that we picked the same song!!!
      Cant wait to hear about your new car when you get it!! It is so much fun just to look at it "dingless" - "knocking on wood!!!

  5. Awesome post.. Might do this.. Love the questions. Losing a pet is awful, and I feel your pain.

    1. Do it!! Cant wait to read your answers!!!! :-)

  6. Nice to meet you. Sorry to hear about your cat. We had the same situation this week so I do know how it feels. Enjoy your new car. Looks quite sporty.:)

  7. Ohhh...I am sorry to hear that you had the same situation..sending hugs your way definitely!!!
    Yes, I love the new car...probably regret it when I have to buy tires though...ha!
