Join us in Joyce's Wednesday Hodgepodge. Just click on the button.

Here are today's questions:

1. What is something that bothers you if it is not done perfectly?
I can't seem to think of anything. It use to be my housework, I was very OCD about it.

2. What is one of your best childhood memories?
It would definitely have to say Christmas, they were always the best.

3. Do you plan to watch the Royal Wedding and when was the last time you wore a hat?
Yes, I.CAN'T.WAIT ! I don't like myself in hats so the last time would most likely be as a child on Easter.

4. Where do you fall in the birth order in your family? Do you think this has influenced your personality?
I am the third/last child. I am the baby in the family. I of course was spoiled and always got my way. I really don't know if it influenced my personality. I have always been the silly.

5. Where do you think you spend most of your money?
Me personally, not counting in the normal bills, I would say face creams/make-up/etc and then on others.

6. When you need to confront someone would you rather communicate in person, on the phone, by email or by letter? Why?
None of the above! I don't like confrontations, haven't actually had that many. I will put things into a letter when I'm angry with my husband. When I face him one on one he has the knack to turn things around making me feel really bad.

7. Dodge ball, freeze tag, kickball or jump rope? You have to pick one.
Jump rope but I doubt I could actually do it now.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
In preparation for the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton, which I am so excited about, I watched the following programs with the last one airing tomorrow:

William & Kate (2011) docudrama on Lifetime
Charles & Di: Once Upon/Time (New) on TLC (this one was wonderful)
Untold Stories/Royal Bridesmaid (New) on TLC
Royally/30 Defining Days (New) on TLC
Wild About Prince Harry (New) on TLC (just because)
The Making of A Royal Wedding (New) on TLC Thursday

If you have a DVR you go on Demand to the BBC and also watch some shows.

I share your enthusiasm for the big wedding. I am so anxious to see Catherine's dress. Why do the Brits act like it is no big deal? It's HUGE!

Joyce said...

I'm excited for the wedding too! I definitely don't jump rope anymore either : ) Have a great day!

LynnMarie said...

Since I have to work, I'll miss the wedding but will most likely be able to watch it on one of the cable shows that will show it over again. I don't think I could jump rope anymore either. How sad. :(

Nanato4 said...

I don't think I could jump rope any more ... nor could I play dodge ball freeze tag or kickball! ha!

maddie/cadesmimi said...

You are so blessed...not to worry about things being done perfectly!

Wow, you are definately gearing up for the big wedding, aren't you? Since I'm dealing with a wedding in "real life", I'm not as excited this time around, like I was with Charles and Diana.

I prefer jump rope over the other choices, but I'd hate to think that I had to do it!!!

Amy said...

I am the baby also in my family and I loved it.. I can't wait for the wedding. I have it taped on the DVR. I love wearing hats but I do not wear the ones like we have seen on t.v. I wish I had that money tree because I love to spend money. Right now I have tons of ideas running through my head for my children's room with the baby coming. Did I say children's? Confrontations are not fun but I would rather talk to the person face to face. Love me some kick ball..

The boat we rode was at Disney it was at the place we stayed we rented it the last day..

Have an amazing day..

I remember watching Charles and Diana get married while I baked cookies. Haven't been enthused about this upcoming royal wedding, but I've set the DVR and plan to watch it so I know what everyone's talking about. Got a jump rope in my Christmas stocking and it nearly killed me ... wheeze ... no stamina. We were driving back from the Grand Canyon last weekend and passed a Texaco station and in my head I was chanting, "Texaco, Texaco, over the hills from Mexico, do the splits ..." =D

Donna @ The House on the Corner said...

You're really excited about the wedding!!! I hope they're marriage is blessed beyond measure - William deserves it!

I'm with you on confrontation - on a personal level, I avoid it like the plague. Unfortunately, on a professional level - it's part of my job description. I do really well on the phone - I can typically get my point across and resolve whatever the issue is satisfactorily.

EmptyNester said...

Besides my floppy garden hat, the last time I wore one was as a child on Easter too! I never enjoyed jumping rope as a child because everyone was so much better at it than I was so I thought I would look stupid. If I did it now folks would think we were having an earthquake. LOL

Nichol said...

I don't like confrontations either. I still have to watch the Lifetime movie of Will and Kate it's on my DVR, haven't had any time for anything lately:( I use to play kickball for hours, it was a favorite of ours, so fun.

April said...

I'm the baby of the family, too...I think that might explain a lot of things! :) I avoid confrontations at all costs.

Yeah, you know how I LOVE these posts!

1. What is something that bothers you if it is not done perfectly?
My handwriting

2. What is one of your best childhood memories?
when my daddy took me on a date, got me a hamburger and we washed his truck

3. Do you plan to watch the Royal Wedding and when was the last time you wore a hat?
No on the wedding
and before I got dreads I loved wearing hats with my flapper hairdo

4. Where do you fall in the birth order in your family? Do you think this has influenced your personality?
to hard to talk about/soap opra is all I am going to say

5. Where do you think you spend most of your money?
purses or bags, I need counceling for it

6. When you need to confront someone would you rather communicate in person, on the phone, by email or by letter? Why?
I also do not like to confront someone, my husband I admire so, always confronts and thats the only way he does it and i admire him for that. I try to be brave and do it in person like him but would rather write a letter to hide.

7. Dodge ball, freeze tag, kickball or jump rope? You have to pick one.
DODGE BALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Im scared to go to the meeting about my daddy and hospice.......

Guiding Light said...

Great post - thank you! I am now following you. Blessings!

Kimberlee, The Spunky Diva said...

That is a lot of royal watching, LOL. If I had time I would be right there watching with you though, LOL!


I can't jump rope. I never could....I am so very clumsy. I always admired people who could.

Jill said...

Wow, you are really excited about this wedding! : ) I won't watch it live, but I'll catch the highlights later. Can't wait to see what her dress looks like either.

Cathy said...

I remember watching Charles and Di's wedding. We had a piano tuner at the house at the same time. I don't plan to watch this one because I'll be working, but I'm happy for them. I hope they'll be happy.

Christmas memories are wonderful!

Anonymous said...

Oh my. You really are into the wedding, eh? I, too, watched Diana and Charles get married. It was increbily surreal. This should be an interesting wedding...very modern, that's for sure!

Goose Hill Farm said...

Hi, Debby~

I can't wait for the wedding either. I hope it will be broadcast on-line so I can watch it.

Christmas.....what's not to love!


Randi Troxell said...

great answers!
i don't do confrontation either.. AT ALL!!

Mara said...

I won't be able to see the wedding, since I am working. I wish them all the best though and think they might actually do very well together.

The last time I wore a hat? Well, does a cap count? Because I will wear one nearly every day to help me drive.

Tammy Doane said...

Don't like confrontations either. I can't wait to watch the wedding-was going to watch it later after school, but now...hmmmmm Great answers.

Sonya said...

I am also looking forward to the upcoming nuptuals only I have not done as much research as you. :) Fill me in. what do I need to know? :)

Great post girl. I look forward to the 'real' fairytale this time. I do so love happily ever after stories.

God bless and have a glorious day! :o)

Lea also known as "CiCi" said...

Blessings to you!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Ahhh I love you posted all the air times :)

You rock face creams and make up :)

secret agent woman said...

I wonder if there are people who would actually choose dodgeball? It's such a sadistic game.
