I Feel the Hodgepodge Move

Hurricane Matthew came through but left us unscathed, thankfully, and things are back to normal which is just the way I like it. Normal means no drama, no life hiccups to stress over...just plain and dull. Normal. There's a lot to be said for normal. My normal means the cutie to the left is with me and who would not love normal when it comes packaged like that? She certainly does spread joy around here. She's quite the happy little bundle and will probably be attending college at the age of 6. 

There's a lot to be said for the Hodgepodge, too! This is a way to share your thoughts, your humor, your life... and all you have to do is answer a few questions, post them, link up, and visit some of the most lovely bloggers around. So post your answers and let's get moving!



1. What would you say is the best and worst thing about moving house? In my case, the worst thing would be 28 years worth of acquired junk to go through. The best? A fresh start, maybe?

2. What's moved you recently? The coming together of communities to help those in need in the aftermath of Matthew, even if it was just helping people cut fallen trees out of their yards or the street or off their homes. First responders who care about people's pets as well as the people. The way my daughter and her husband show such love and calm when interacting with Baby M. 

3. Do you feel your life is moving forward, backward, or is on hold? I am on hold. How so? I continue to sit and wait. Thing is, I don't even know what it is I'm waiting for. Or I do know but haven't figured out what to do about it. I don't know. I'm on hold and it's all my doing. How's that? 

4. On the move, move mountainsget a move onit's your move, or bust a move...which phrase best applies to some aspect of your life right now? Get a move on. Explain. The weather is not providing me with the hot temps that I used as an excuse to not move this summer so it's time to get a move on moving my a$$. 

5. What song makes you want to get up and move? Even if I'm tired I'll get up and move to this one. It's on my workout playlist. You know the one I haven't played in three months because it's been too hot to move so I sat down and sweated that way...




6. Your favorite snack to grab when you're 'on the move'? Well, that's interesting. I don't think I grab a snack when I'm on the move. It's when I'm sitting down sweating that I tend to grab a snack.

7. What one accessory makes your house feel like home? I'm not sure there is an accessory that makes this house feel like home mostly because I'm not the type person who accessorizes. I think it feels like home because it's small and cozy. 

8. Insert your own random thought here. Loads on my mind but I'm going to go with this because it's happy and fun and I love Snoopy! :)




Have a great rest of the week, y'all!

  1. I think everybody is pretty much in agreement about the best and worst part of a move. So glad your family came through the hurricane and that your community pulled together so well. Watching your kids care and love their kids is truly a moving thing.

    1. I keep thinking I want to move and then I think about all the work it will be and change my mind. Thank you! Yes, it is wonderful to watch them care for their own kiddos and, at some point, the revenge sets in, right? LOL

    1. I cannot sit down when I hear it. Which is why I rarely play it. LOL Thanks!

  3. Baby M and Snoopy, two very cheering sights. We don't see that first hand response to the hurricane as you do, but hearing about people jumping in to help is moving. And I agree about moving and snacking. It's when I sit down that I want to eat.

    1. There are plenty of wonderful, caring people but the scammers have started coming around too. They always have to throw a wrench into everything. Yep, sitting and snacking. Two things I shouldn't do together but I love them both... LOL Thanks!

  4. Glad to hear you and your family came through the hurricane without any problems, I was wondering...

    1. Thank you! I read your list and there were a few on there on my playlist for working out. The fall weather has been great in the mornings and we've been able to get back out there and walk. :)

  7. That song really does make me want to move, too. Whether or not I actually DO move is another story, but it's a great song! I enjoyed reading you HP answers today, Pam! Love seeing that little darlin's picture too!

    1. Well, that's why I try to not play that song very often. LOL We have gotten back out there to walk now that the weather is cool enough. :)

  8. Haven't moved in years 28 years in fact and no plan to do so, Hurricane Mathew has done so much damage to so many cost so many lives so it is good you didn't suffer much.

    1. I would love to move but I think I may be too lazy. LOL Yes, Matthew did some major damage in Haiti for sure. And then NC took a hard hit as well. I'm glad the thing is gone and hope no one gets another one EVER!

  9. That is very nice. I am so glad you are back to normal. I think taking care of a baby is the most important work. Think of your memories you have of your grandmother? You are doing the most important work. :)

    1. I think about my grandmother all the time and know that there is no way I can measure up. If I get a fraction close, I'll be happy. :) She is a sweet little bug, though. LOVE her to bits! :)

  10. That's a great Snoopy picture.

    "Thing is, I don't even know what it is I'm waiting for. Or I do know but haven't figured out what to do about it. I don't know. How's that?" That sounds like me about half the time!

    1. Thank goodness I'm not in that boat alone! I really thought I was. :) Thanks!

  11. I agree, getting rid of the years of stuff we collected will be the worse. Long walks with baby M in a stroller would be perfect exercise. I like your song choice! Enjoy your weekend.

    1. Oh gosh, it would be terrible. We everything has gotten crammed in the attic. UGH. We do enjoy walking. Y'all should move to this coast and you could join us! :)

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
