Wednesday Hodgepodge Hop on in and enjoy!!!!!!

Hello everyone and welcome back to another edition of Wednesdays Hodgepodge.  Brought to you by our lovely host Miss Joyce over at From This Side of the Pond.   Wow this week has seem to flown by already.  It is hard for me to keep up with it being Wednesday already. 

1. American Idol is back for a 14th season. Are you watching? Have you ever watched? If you were to audition for the show (or were made to audition), what song would you sing?
----- I have not watched this show since season 1.  Just not my thing but if I were made to audition it would have to be with Crystal Gayle “Don’t Make My Brown Eyes Blue”.

2.  Mark Twain is quoted as saying, "If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first." 

So when did you last have to 'eat a frog'? Or two? How'd that work out? 

----- Cleaning the garage is the biggest frog for me.  I have certainly rearranged a lot of stuff in there and I still have a lot to do.  It will take me some time to finish this frog.  As for the small one well that would be my office.  I have it partially cleaned now and should have it finished by Sunday.
I want something more organized and simple like this picture here: 

However, I also don't want to spend a fortune on it either.  I love the top one of these but also love the bottom one as well.  The bottom one is from Thirty-One and I already have the middle piece, one of the pockets and both of the caddies that is on the desk.  I just have to put them together.  But I am still drawn to the top one.  I would love to have that one in my kitchen area and the bottom one in my office.  That way I can have my home stuff separate from my AVON and my Thirty-One Business.

3. If you were going on safari, what is the number one animal you'd want to see?
----- Tiger.  Don’t know why maybe because it is my zodiac sign but I love Cats of all kind.  They are just amazing to me.  They look so gentle and yet they are so dangerous at the same time.

4. January 21st is National Granola Bar Day. I know. Do you like granola bars? Chewy or crunchy? Your favorite flavor? How about regular granola? Let's exhaust this topic in honor of the holiday okay?
---- YUCK YUCK YUCK YUCK is all I can say about that topic.  My husband bought some chocolate covered Quaker granola bars and I thought OK it has chocolate on it, maybe it won’t be so bad…uh WRONG!!!!!!!  IT WAS HORRIBLE!!!!!!!

5. If only__________________________________________. 
------ I could have a bigger house with more storage and style.  I don’t feel like my house is big enough and I certainly am tired of the layout in it.  I wish it were more open in away or even have a basement so I could park my car in the garage.

6. You can add one item to your bedroom. What will it be? Keep it family friendly please.
------- That is easy, a dresser.  We have a California King bed and a wardrobe in our room and that is all that will fit beside the clothes hamper.  I want my dresser back!!!!!!!!!!!

7. What is one thing you've enjoyed about winter thus far? If it's not winter in your corner of the globe, what season is it, and what is something you've enjoyed about whatever season it happens to be?
 -----Watching what snow fall we have had so far make the world look like a better place.  I love the snow and how it covers us in white.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
----- Well I am happy to report that my daughter has enrolled in online college courses for an Associates in Accounting.  She has also been asked if she would like to be promoted to Assistant Manager even if it means moving to another store.  (Not happy about her moving to another store even though it is on the other side of the expressway from where she is now.  Getting to that location is a logistic nightmare!!!!!)
My grandson is now 6 months old and is an absolute love and light of my life.  Makes us all smile.
My son is still at his current job but looking for something else.  They keep changing him from shift lead to manager and there is no consistency.  I told him he could do better and to find something else.  He hates the idea because his work is literally 5 minutes from the house and one traffic light. 
I also have to announce that I have joined the Weight Loss Challenge Program at the YMCA and it starts tomorrow.  It is a 12 week course and hopefully by then I will be down a significant amount from where I am currently at in my weight.

Well I hope you all enjoyed this edition of the Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Be sure to leave a comment and then hope on over to Joyce’s blog at the From This Side of the Pond and join in on the fun.  Remember to leave comments as you visit other bloggers.
