Hodge Podge

Whenever I heard "hodge podge" I always think of this crafting thing that's like glue and lacquer at the same time. I think it's called mod podge, but I am not a crafter, so I couldn't really say. Any way, it's not related to what I'm going to say right now, so, I don't know why I wrote it in the first place.

Just a few little tidbits before the weekend.

For any one who was interested in knowing, my grandpa had his surgery and has been recovering nicely. He ended up having three disks replaced in his neck. The description of it kind of reminded me of The Adoration of Jenna Fox. He know has a surgical gel supporting his vertebrae and preventing damage to his spinal cord. He will be okay, even though it was touch and go for a while there.

I'm writing more on a daily basis than I have in a while. It's nice. And I feel productive. And like I might actually finish this draft. Yay!

I have recently started training for a part time job. It's all online and since I spend a lot of time online any way, it's right up my alley. It'll help to pay down some of the debt that has piled up as my husband has been starting his own business. And still give me time to do the things that I have been doing any way. (At least, we hope.)

We're going out of town for the 4th of July. We might even stay away for the whole week. It's our 5 year anniversary next week. I can't believe we've been married 5 years. It's crazy!

And that's it for me, friends. I hope you all have a stellar weekend. Thanks to everyone who participated in the blogfest on Wednesday and check back sometime next week for the winner of the special surprise!

What are your plans for the 4th of July?

So glad to hear about your Grandpa. I don't know that there's any worse pain than missing discs in your back. Happy anniversary and holiday weekend!

We're having a lazy 4th of July~ we'll go to the town parade and have the typical BBQ with family. Have a great weekend!

Glad to hear your grandpa is okay. It's always rough when you don't know for sure what's going to happen, so I'm glad he's in the clear.

Good luck with the writing and the new job, and happy anniversary!

Oh so funny! When I read your title I thought, "I hope she's writing about some decopage craft. That would be funny on a writers blog." Then low and behold you said basically the same thing.

Have a fun 4th and Anniversary! Five years is worth celebrating!

My fourth of July plans include doing as little as possible!! How lame am I?

No, we're doing a river raft (if we get it put together) and hopefully some hiking...

Glad your grandfather is doing well and that you're finding time to write. Enjoy the weekend. I'm working up at the Observatory Friday and Saturday. Monday we'll go out exploring.

Good to hear about your grandfather, and happy anniversary! 4th of July isn't a holiday here in Australia, but I've spent it settling back in after our trip.

Oh Happy Anniversary Kayeleen! And congrats on the new job, too!

We have lots of parades and performances (karate stuff) and then a wonderful tradition of hanging out at a big park with extended family for an afternoon of picnic dinners and a fun fireworks display.

Enjoy your trip!
