Wednesday Hodgepodge


Joining Joyce at From This Side of the Pond for this week's Hodgepodge.


1. Your favorite cleaning product?

My favorite cleaning product is Thieves by Young Living.  I keep a spray bottle under my sink and use it often.  I also like the Meyers cleaning products.

 Do you clean your own house or hire out? Most disliked household chore? What one chore do you not mind so much? 

I clean my own house and dislike cleaning the bathrooms the most.  The one job I don't mind is dusting and cleaning the kitchen.  Of course, this latter one is an on-going, never-ending chore.

 2. It's Canned Food Month...do you use a lot of canned goods? What are the three canned items you purchase most often? Last thing you made using a canned ingredient? 

Who named these months and weeks?
I don't use a lot of canned goods because we just don't eat out of cans and they have too much sodium.

The ones we purchase most often are Black Beans and Corn that we use in salads, plus Tomatoes.  The last thing I cooked was Chili and used two cans of tomatoes and one tomato sauce.  It was perfect for those iced-in, cold days last week.

 3. Can of worms, anything can happen, can you imagine?, as best I can, kick the can down the road, more than one can take, no can do, not if I can help it...choose an idiom and tell us how you currently relate.

After the last week of major snow and ice and its consequences, I will have to go with "anything can happen."  "Can you imagine?" fits right in there as well.  No one could have imagined or prepared for what Texas and our former state of residence, Louisiana experienced and millions still are.  For many of them "more than one can take" also fits.

4.The last Tuesday in February is National Spa Day. Are you someone who enjoys a day at the spa? Last time you visited a spa? Do you have a favorite spa? Are salons open for business in your area? Have you made changes to your hair and nail routine since Corona hit? In what way? 

The last time I actually enjoyed a spa was several years ago at our hotel in Las Vegas.  I have never had a whole day at a spa, but don't think that would be something I would want to do.  Yes, salons are open for business where I live, and no I did not allow Corona to affect how I had my hair or nails done once my salon reopened.  Life goes on and I have not allowed it to have a major affect on my life.

 5. Believe it or not this is the last Hodgepodge of the month. In one sentence sum up your February. 

Even though I loved all the ice and snow both up north and in the south, it also brought much destruction, death, and inconvenience to millions.  At the same time, thousands were willing to assist, and give, and share with those who were without.

 6. Insert your own random thought here.

Along with a move comes having to find all new doctors, etc.  One of my biggest pet peeves is having to fill out all the paperwork required.

Our prospective new Internist required that we pre-register online and this process included pages of questions.  I did that!

Because our appointments were canceled due to inclement weather this week, my husband went by the office to re-schedule.  What do they give him, but two - that is TWO packets of additional (some repeated) info to fill out and bring to the appointment.  On some of the info, I wrote "refer to electronic submission."

Now, what do you bet, once we see the doctor's assistant, we are asked the same questions so she can put them into her computer.  Then when the doctor comes in she will want to know some of the same things.  I'm thinking my stock answer will be, "Previously Submitted!"

Now, one of the forms in the packet is "Gender Identification."  Yes, a whole form to know whether you were born what you claim to be, or wish to be, or can't decide what you are or wish to be.  This is truly "more than I can take."


Rather than end on a negative note because there is so much good in this world and in my life,

  1. Hi Libby:
    Dusting is the one thing I don't like. We stock up on canned goods
    during the winter in case the weather is too bad to get out. The cans
    have a date of use by on them so we always make sure the date year is
    far into the future.
    We also had to change doctors and you are so right about the paper work.
    We didn't have any online pre-registration, only paperwork at the doctor's office.
    I also bet that when we have an appointment we will have to go all over this again.
    I think the gender identification is crazy.
    I enjoyed your answers and especially your ending on a positive note.
    Have a great day.

  2. Libby,

    So, you're one of the privileged few who actually know what sex she is? Oh I hear you on everything you're ranting about in your random segment. It's so crazy. What's the point of all of the registration paper work if you have to orally spout the info to the nurse/doctor again or do part of it again when you arrive? I usually leave stupid questions blank or what about when you're doing it for a GYN when it comes to 'Sex'. They give you a male and female options. This is a GYN right? So, I usually answer YES. I figured that's sure to make someone laugh. How many men do you know who sees a GYN? Okay, maybe in today's world there are more than I'd care to know about but you get where I'm coming from. It's tough being a normal person in this insanely abnormal world we live in! Thanks for sharing. When you have a minute, I hope you'll stop by to visit me!

  3. Thieves is legit the best! I have been using YL for maybe 8 years now and that one is by far my favorite for cleaning bathrooms, etc.

  4. I am so with you on the gender identification. I keep waiting for the bubble to burst, but every day you hear something crazier. It is so sad. Good luck with the doctor hunt. That is one of the biggest aggravations about moving. And my hair salon too. That's always a tough transition : )

  5. Good morning! I do not like to dust. I have allergies and dust is one of my biggies. Good luck with the new doctors - I hate to have to find a new doctor and also hate to find a new hair stylist!

  6. Oh Libby, I can understand your frustration with those forms and the ridiculous notions about gender. Sorry too that you had to experience that Texas freeze. So sad for the busted pipes and damage it caused. Glad you are choosing joy and to look on the brighter side. Hope the rest of February goes well!

  7. Oh, you seemed to have "hit a nerve" with many of us on the form filling. Good grief, why does the nurse ask the same identical questions. I just had that happen two weeks ago. I have all my annual checkups in Jan. and Feb. and I'm pretty much "over it" by the time I've been to all of them, and I'm healthy as a horse but I see my Internist, my Gyn, Dermatologist and eye Dr. Goodness, it never ends. :o)) Have a great rest of the week.

  8. I haven't seen Thieves in the stores around here.
    Gender identification...Heaven Help Us! Filling out mounds of paperwork ugh!

  9. I think I might write on gender info--"please refer to birth certificate".
    I have been pleasantly surprised at how little info I am having to fill out at our new dr.
    Here's to a better month of March!

  10. I am going to check out that cleaner. You're right about the sodium. I also buy low sodium black beans. I felt so bad for everyone in the country being affected by all of the snow. My poor MIL was is bed for two days with blankets. She's 93! Her son who lived in Houston couldn't even drive to get her. I'm sorry about that paperwork. I agree with you. We are in a medical group, you would think that each doctor could access our records. Nope, doesn't work that way.
