Hodgepodge Vol 300

It's Hodgepodge time again, head on over to Joyce's blog to see what other people have answered.


1. What is one area of your life where you're a perfectionist? Is that a good thing? I don't think I'm a perfectionist in anything. I think that's a good thing, I'm not sure I'd want to keep doing something over and over until it's perfect, seems like a lot of wasted time. 

2. What's something you find perfectly ridiculous? What some people deem important to argue over. I've been dealing with some people at work that feel some things they must argue over. I won't go into detail, but sometimes a fine that's under a dollar just shouldn't be worth it.

3. What's a skill you've developed by way of that old fashioned saying, 'practice makes perfect? Honestly, I don't usually use the perfect word. I work on things to make them better, but if they're not perfect, I don't really care.

4. What's your idea of a perfect breakfast? I like sweet stuff, one of my local restaurants makes the best pancakes, they are the size of a dinner plate and the syrup they have just goes great with them. Plus, you have to have good company, I went there a few years ago for breakfast on my birthday with friends, it was pretty close to perfect.

5. What's a trip, holiday, vacation, or day outing you've taken that you'd rate a perfect 10? Tell us why. At the end of 2009, beginning of 2010, my family went to Hawaii. That was the best vacation I've had in years. The temperature was great. I got to fly out business first class and first class on the way back. We had a few days on the big island and then took a week cruise around the other islands and spent a few days at the end at a resort. I'll probably never be able to afford that kind of vacation.
Just a few pictures from our vacation:
 One of the big trees they have.
 Another cool tree.
 Bird of paradise flowers
 One of my favorite pictures of me, quite a bit slimmer than I am right now
 a view from a mountain overlook
 Rainbow falls
 just a cool picture
 We went to a seahorse farm and got to 'hold' the seahorses
 Our cruise ship
We also went to a luau

6. What quote or saying perfectly sums up your life right now? If you can't do perfect, how about one that comes close? I have no idea.

7. How would you spend $300 today? I'd probably go buy a new TV stand, a light spring jacket, some better shoes and some shelving units. I'd probably put some of it in the bank, too.

8.  Insert your own random thought here. I'm going to Chicago next week. I'm ready for a vacation, like I said above, there are been some trying patrons at my job lately. I'm getting tired of people not taking responsibilities for their actions and then wanting to get rewarded for it. I don't see why I should waive fines for people that get them, it's like they're getting rewarded for getting the fines, shouldn't we be rewarding the people that don't get fines? I'm just ready to not be at work for awhile.

We went to the Big Island, too, back in 2010...had a blast and would love to go back. Perfect in every way!

Last week

On our way home from Chicago, we stopped off at a Hobby Lobby, but unlike some other stores I feel all Hobby Lobby's have the same stuf...
