Wednesday Hodgepodge – Vol. 176

Happy Wednesday!  It’s Wednesday Hodgepodge time.  Am I the only one who is off-kilter this week?  I keep thinking its Tuesday not Wednesday.  I’m all confused.  Please, tell me its not just me… If you have never joined in on Wednesday Hodgepodge, its loads of fun.  Just hop over to Joyce’s blog on Tuesday (that was yesterday for us confused folks), grab the questions and then answer them on your own blog. Visit Joyce on Wednesday and link up your post.  Have fun!

 1. What news story are you following right now?

I am not a big-news person.  Right now, I know there is alot going on, but the story that caught my eye lately is Courtney Force being the 100th female win in the NHRA.  That was awesome, and I was glad I was able to see history being made.

2. What’s the last thing you wanted but didn’t get?

I want these beautiful boots at The Shoe Show in town.  I saw them when I was buying shoes for the kids last week.  Don claims it is a “want” and not a “need” – but, dang would I look good in them.

3. May 28th is National Hamburger Day…when did you last have a hamburger? Other than your own kitchen or BBQ grill, where is your favorite place to go for a hamburger? And for all you non-meat eaters out there…when you’re invited to a cookout what is the one side dish you hope is on the menu?

We had turkey burgers last week.  They were pretty good.  I seasoned them with some new ground chipotle peppers I bought at the virtual farmers market in town.  I don’t know where my favorite place to go is… I love ’em at Red Robin, I love ’em at Fuddruckers, I love ’em at Crabill’s… I would have to say though, it would have to be at K’s near my work.  I swear, they haven’t cleaned the grill since the 50’s… and that’s what makes them so darn good.

4. How have your priorities changed over time?

Once we had kids, it became less about us and everyone else and mostly them and what they needed or wanted.  I always wanted the nice car, big house, American dream.  But, now I would be happy to raise two healthy, happy, well adjusted kids that make a difference in the world.

5. What’s a favorite memory with your grandparents?

Hmmmm.  There is so many.  I would have to say when my Great-Grandma Apple nailed my dad in the middle of his forehead with a wadded up piece of wrapping paper when she was 96 during our Christmas party. (We always had a paper fight every year.)

6. On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being fantastic!), how good are you at multitasking? Share an example.

Freaking 1000.  I am a mom of twins.  ‘Nuff said.

7. How would you summarize your highs and lows for the month of May?

May was a pretty smooth sailing for me.  Tomorrow, the kids graduate from pre-Kindergarten.  So, that will both be a low and a high rolled into one.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

This is how I spent my Saturday night:

    Shoot multi-tasking no problem with that, don’t have a choice when it comes to twins. Speaking of news have they ever found that missing plane? Fuddruckers was so good, is there any around still? If yes we must go there, had the best buffalo chicken sandwich.Of course you would look great in those boots 🙂

  2. I want to try red robin. Your Saturday looks like it was relaxing.

  3. Too bad my Sunday and Monday wasn’t. LOL.

  4. Does that mean I can go buy them?

  5. Not only am I confused about what day of the week it is, I also keep thinking it is June. It must be – it’s after Memorial Day, right? Did someone add some extra days in May and not tell me?!
    It is so true that after you have kids your priorities change and you know what is really important like happy, healthy kids and relaxing Saturday nights in front of a fire. Happy Summer!

  6. A lovely way to spend Saturday night! And, yes, being a mommy certainly changes priorities. I’m in the next phase of life – being a mom with adult children. The good news is they still “need” me for advice and friendship. They are still my #1 priority!

  7. I wonder if the boots were cowgirl ones like Nancys!! memories of grandparents are very important for us when we become adults some we laugh at and some we cry….I could write a Nana page for you hint hint
    you and don are doing a great job on being parents of twins…..and May 29th will be sad to see your children walk across a stage to receive a diploma and hear their names called out….cause I want them to stay as babies in arms…….but then I wanted you to stay that way too and look what you did got all grown up……LOL

    I used to work at K’s and can attest that the grill/grease pit does get cleaned. But it’s few and far between. They do have the best darn burgers though. And chocolate shakes…OMG!
