Are You Ready for Some Wednesday Hodgepodge?

1. ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL? The NFL is back in action along with all the college teams. Are you a fan? Who do you root for? If you're not a fan what do you do while the rest of America watches Saturday, Sunday, Monday night, and now Thursday night games?

We are not football fans. I keep up with whether the Longhorns win but that's about it. If I had married someone who likes football, I could have been more of a fan because I grew up with it, but it's not a big deal to me. It is actually interesting and a bit disheartening how completely obsessed people get with it. It's sometimes hard to have a conversation that doesn't revolve around it, especially in a group with men. There really is more to life than football.

And there are plenty of things to do instead of football. (Read a book!) Pardon my soapbox, and it isn't just football, but I think we as Christians are going to be accountable for the incredible amount of time we wasted on such things yet couldn't find time to minister to someone. Just sayin'.

2. What's something I'll always find in your closet?

My clothes and shoes! (And way too much dust!)

3. Share one of your earliest memories.

When my brother cut his hand. I mean, he seriously sliced it - fell on a broken bottle in a ditch. Fortunately, the best hand doctor in town just "happened" to be at the hospital they took him to; otherwise he might have had some permanent muscle/nerve damage.

Anyway, he was about 13 and I was around two and a half years old. I have this "snapshot" picture in my mind of him and our mom standing at the kitchen sink and my mom frantically trying to rinse the blood off his hand.

4. What circus act best describes your week so far?

Juggling on a high wire! Trying to balance the things I have to do -- and the phone keeps ringing reminding me of appointments I forgot to put on the calendar!

5. What's a food you disliked as a child but you love now?


6. Describe your summer in three words.

Busy, unique, expensive!

7. Where were you on September 11, 2001? Will you do anything special to mark the day this year?

My kids were both in elementary school and I was at home, not feeling well due to a cold/allergies. My man called to tell me about the attack and I turned on the TV just moments before the second plane hit the tower. I was pretty much glued to the TV the rest of the week.

I didn't do anything special yesterday as an observance; I was just aware of the significance of the day.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Has anyone tried these yet? They were supposed to be at Target (the only place they'll be available) Monday, but the one by my house said the Nabisco guy hadn't brought them yet. I'm not a fan of candy corn but a friend of mine is addicted to it so I was going to get her some.

I haven't seen those Oreos yet but now I'm going to have to look for them.

I can only eat candy corn in very small amounts so probably won't try the cookies. I like my candy corn mixed with salted peanuts. I haven't seen the cookies here yet, but have seen the ads so I guess they're coming.

Haven't tried the Oreos although I saw someone on FB had posted the picture. Not sure if I'd like them or not, but I'll probably at least try them.

Juggling fits my life right now too.

Have a great day!

My girls would love those Oreos, but candy corn gives me a tummyache.

I've never heard of candy corn oreos but they look like they'll taste good dunked in milk! yum.
