Welcome to the Wednesday Hodgepodge. So glad you decided to play along today...everybody's welcome in the HP! Answer the questions on your own blog or facebook page then add your link at the end of my post. Be sure to check out what everyone else had to say too.
Here are my answers-
1. What's the last job you did that required elbow grease?
Cleaning my cooktop. I hate that job and normally hubs takes care of it because he excels at it and also because he kind of likes jobs that require elbow grease. Yay hubs!
2. March Madness, aka the men's Division I basketball championship, is nearing an end...what sort of 'madness' has your house seen this month?
Well the travel bookings have been a little on the 'mad' side in March. I've spent the past month booking air and train transport and/or accommodations for Easter, Daughter2's university graduation, plus a post graduation vacation. Oh, and we've also leased an apartment for daughter2 for post college life. Plus, we've actually traveled. I know! You'll have to wait for April to hear all about that.
3. What's your favorite shop for browsing?
There's a little gift shop in the next town over that I like to wander around in when I have time. If we're talking about the mall I'd say Williams Sonoma or Nordstroms shoe department.
4. Is there ever a time when giving up makes sense?
Tough question. I think it all depends what you're giving up on. Marriage? A mortgage you can't pay? A wayward child? I can't lump all these eggs into the same basket. I'm sure the answer to the original question is yes, but only sometimes, not always.
5. What's a song you love that contains the name of a city, state or country in its title?
You know I can't choose just one, right?
Hotel California by the Eagles
Carolina in My Mind by James Taylor
And of course Please Come to Boston by Dave Loggins... 'cuz I am the number one fan of the man from Tennessee.
6. When did you first begin using a computer?
I can't remember exactly what year it was but sometime in the mid-90's. I do know I wasn't on it much. Back then my girls mostly played Oregon Trail and used the paintbox. I don't think I really 'got it' in those early days.
As opposed to now when I'm a technological wizard.
7. Did you buy girl scout cookies this year? What's your favorite?
I did buy girl scout cookies this year. My plan was to send them to my girls but they both bought some on their own. Hmmm...what to do now? Ha. My favorites are Samoas and Tagalongs.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I'm participating in the April A-Z blog challenge again this year. I loved it last year and really enjoyed the alphabet theme. It's not too late to sign up and join the party. Click the A-Z button on my sidebar for more details and be sure to watch for my posts from A-Z beginning April 1st. Let me know if you are playing too.
