Hodgepodge in April

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog.  Today I am joining up with Joyce over at From This Side Of The Pond.  She always has some interesting questions and it is a great way to meet other bloggers and see if there is something that interests you that you haven't done or experienced.  So be sure to hop on over to her blog, grab the questions, fill them in and share with the rest of us.

1. April showers bring May flowers or so the saying goes. Has your April been filled with showers? Do you carry an umbrella, wear a slicker, or make a run for it? Besides rain, what else has filled your April? 

--- We have had alot of rain here lately.  I can never remember to carry an umbrella and when I do, I usually put it in the trunk of my car.  Of course with it being in the trunk that means I get soaked trying to get it when I do need it.

Which isn't really strange but the strange thing is the cold weather to go with it.  I have been trying to get my nephews birth certificate from the state of Louisiana.  You can read about this ordeal here.

2. What's something you could you give a 30-minute presentation on at a moment's notice and with zero preparation?

--- Child support and divorce.  Without a doubt, I am probably the most up to date person when it comes to these two subjects.  I have always been my own attorney when it came to both of these.

3. Share with us a favorite food memory from childhood.

--- Goulash I would have to say was a favorite that my mom always fixed.  Most people call it glorified hamburger helper but it was so delicious.  We always had a house full of people when she would make it.  All the neighborhood kids loved it.

4. What's a song you thought you knew the lyrics to, but later discovered you were wrong?

--- I think I will go with Blondie One Way or Another on this one.  There are really alot that I find I was wrong on once I started googling the lyrics.

5. According to one travel website, the most overrated tourist attractions in America are-
Niagara Falls (NY), Hollywood Walk of Fame (California), Times Square (NYC), Epcot (FL), Seattle Space Needle (WA), and Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market (Boston). How many of these have you seen in person? Did you feel like a tourist? Did you care? Tell us about a place (not on the list) you've visited that might be considered a tourist trap, but you love it anyway.

--- I have been to the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Time Square.  As for feeling like a tourist, absolutely but that was ok because it didn't matter to me.  I think that the Grand Canyon is a tourist trap for sure.  I mean it is a bunch of rock formations.  However, it was still amazing to see all the different ways that the earth has carved out the rocks and the rivers flow through them.  It is absolutely breathtaking for sure.

6. Your signature clothing item?

--- t-shirts but aside from them, I would have to say jeggings.  I love to dress comfortable and since I sit all day at work and don't interact with customers I can dress pretty much any way I want as long as it isn't provocative.

7. What's an experience you've had you think everyone should experience at least once? Why?

--- DISNEY PARADE.  OMG, I went for the first time 6 yrs ago and I was like a kid in a candy store.  I had never been and have been back 1 time since.  I plan on making another trip down there next year with my nephew and grandson.  Oh the joy of being able to see all the characters and dance with them is amazing.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

--- Today would have been my brothers 48th birthday.  Sadly he left us on January 23rd this year suddenly.  To say that things have been crazy since is a true understatement.  He left behind a 14 yr old son who I am now the guardian of.  I am trying to make sure that this child feels at home but it has been hard considering I didn't get to really know him until this past couple of years because he lived in Louisiana with his mom.  All I can do is take one day at a time and keep praying and breathing.

Thanks for stopping by my little blog and please leave a message to let me know you were here.  Who knows maybe we can learn something from each other or we both get new subscribers.
