Wednesday HodgePodge

1. Share a favorite memory of your mother or share a favorite something from your own life as a mother. If you're a mother (or stepmom) tell us how your experience as a mom differs from your own mother's experience.

My mom was a married, stay at home mom until my sisters and I were older, when she went back to work, then back to school.  I got divorced when my kids were very young, and I always worked outside the home.  So yes, my experience as a mother is very different from my mom's.

2. In May we celebrate teachers (May 9) and nurses (May 6) both. Most every family has at least one in their midst, so tell us something (or a few things) you appreciate about the teacher or nurse on your family tree.

It's no wonder my Jen wanted to be a teacher, my dad was a principal and my mom was a teacher before she went back to school to become a lawyer, and Drew is a teacher.  Teachers work so hard....

My high school Social Studies teacher inspired me to major in history in college, and to become a lawyer.  

3. Chicken salad, egg salad, tuna salad...which would you go for if all three were on the menu? On bread or a bed of lettuce? If you answered bread, what kind of bread would make it the perfect sandwich?

Chicken salad on toasted white bread, with lettuce and tomato please.

4. Do you have a desk? Is it organized? If so, share your secret to keeping it that way. If you don't have a desk, where in your home do you take care of family paperwork and business? Where do you normally sit to blog?

You do not want to see my desk....

I blog anywhere and everywhere.  I have an app on the iPad, so I can blog wherever I find myself.

5. When I was nine years old....

My 4th grade teacher loved science.  We had a number of live animals in our classroom, and she taught us about those animals.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

I'm thinking I may go back to the beach after work, I really like walking there.

There's a reason I don't do these memes. I'm so different. For example, #3. Chicken salad, egg salad, or tuna salad? If those are the only choices, I'm going hungry. I hate mayonnaise...

A lot of teachers in your family. I hope you had a nice walk on the beach.

Welcome to the Hodgepodge! I am curious what app you use on your ipad for blogging. I don't like to blog on mine, but it's old so that might be why it's so much trouble. Our sixth grade science teacher kept a boa constrictor in his classroom and I remember periodically they'd have all the sixth grade classes file in to watch it eat a mouse. Yuck!! Happy Mother's Day!

I've always though meme was fun. Maybe next Wednesday I will join in
