Skating along with January Hodgepodge

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog.  Today I am joining in with Joyce at From This Side of the Pond for her Wednesday Hodgepodge.  If you have never joined in or been to her blog I suggest you hope on over and get the questions, answer them and link up.  This is a great way to meet other bloggers.  Who knows you just might find your next best friend, learn something you didn’t know or get great advise on other things such as food and travel.

So without further ado here are this week’s questions and answers.  Please be sure to leave a comment with your blog link so I can visit and join in on your wonderful answers.

1.  Speaking of skating...when did you last 'skate on thin ice', 'skate over the details', 'encounter a cheapskate', or just plain skate?
--- Oh wow, digging back in the memory bank here.  I guess the one time that has stuck out in my mind is when my brother took me and a friend ice skating for the first time.  It was freezing cold, he had an old VW bug that was rusty as all get out.  The part that makes me remember it the most is that he kept taking me to the middle of the rink and letting go.  I think I sat on the ice more than I stood.

2. What would you say is the biggest problem of people your age?
--- The inability to discipline their children.  When I look at my kids and other kids their same age I am appalled at the lack of respect for themselves, others and things in general.  The parents don’t seem to want to discipline them and make them respectful of anything.

3. What's your favorite accessory? Is it something you wear every day, often, or only on special occasions?
--- My black cardigan sweater and fit bit.  Without either of them I feel lost and like I am forgetting something.

4. January 20th is National Cheese Lover's Day. Are you a lover of cheese? What's your favorite dish made with cheese? Last thing you ate that contained some kind of cheese? 
---I would have to say a hot ham and cheese sandwich is my favorite.  However, for what I ate last with cheese would be hamburger Bacon and Cheeseburger for dinner.

5. What's something guaranteed to make you roll your eyes? 
 --- a smartass kid,  I have to roll my eyes or I will be charged with assault.
6. Your favorite book series
--- Dean Koontz Odd Thomas

7. Why did you choose your profession? 
---Honestly, I didn’t really pick my profession.  I have worked in Accounting for the last 20 years.  I wanted to be an attorney but realized I was afraid of court so I changed to a Management Degree but no one will hire without experience and you can’t get experience if no one will hire you to begin with.

8. Insert your own random thought here. 
---Yesterday started off pretty scary.  My SIL called me and told me that my oldest brother who lives about 15 miles from me was in a car wreck.  Thankfully he is ok but their car is totaled and my SIL is in the hospital with serious medical issues.  They only have the one car and his work is about 20 miles from where he lives.  There is no public transportation that comes out by his house and I am not sure what he is going to do in order to get back and forth to work.  I am going to offer to let him stay with me until she gets out of the hospital and they can get another car.

---I honestly need to blog more because as of this post I have only done about 3 posts for the month of January.  Seriously need to get some more post up.

Don’t forget to leave me a comment with your blog link included.  I love meeting and following new people and learning something new.  I hope you all have an amazing rest of the week and weekend.
