HDQ/Ask Nic & Guest Bloggers

Hello and happy Wednesday. Affectionately known as Hump Day. Wednesday is the hump of the work week. Once you get past it it’s all a downhill slide to the weekend. WHEW!

I’ve been needing a sanity break lately. Well, my sanity break came in the form of Em getting a little sick yesterday. Since “The X” is now working days, he isn’t readily able to take care of Em when she’s sick. Not that she was extremely sick but she was extremely stuffed up and running a low grade fever. She alternated between Ms. VonKrankypantzen and Ms. Superhyper but was consistently Ms. Snotalot. It was nice to spend time with her that wasn’t weekend and night time time.

I am, however back to work today since Em was no longer running a fever and I brought her back to school, even though she was still Ms. Snotalot.

Ok, the HDQ question for today is a simple one. I'm looking for your favorite blogs. Personally, I like ones with humor in the writing. Things that make me laugh are good.

I want to know, what is your favorite blog that you just can’t go a day or two at the most without visiting it? Why do you like it so much?

Next is Ask Nic:
This is the place where you can ask me anything that is on your mind about me, something you have wanted to know or were just curious about in general. You can ask about my experiences in life and love and parenting, my beliefs, etc... Be creative, be fun, be introspective, but please be clean! You can post the questions in the comments section or email me your question directly to asknic@gmail.com.

I will be posting the questions and their responses soon so check back within the next week for them. They probably will be up over the weekend or early next week if I get enough questions.


As mentioned in Monday’s post, I will be out of town starting the Tuesday after Memorial Day for a week of glorious vacation(!) and I am looking for some people willing to be guest bloggers on those days.

If you would like to be a guest blogger, please let me know by leaving a comment or emailing me at nboedeke@gmail.com. I will get with you regarding password, etc. for this venture. I've never had guest bloggers but I have guest blogged for others before so I know a little of how it works.

As you know, I have specific posts on specific days and if any of those appeal to you, please let me know which day(s) you would like to cover.

Please keep in mind that you do NOT have to blog what I do on those days, but in case you are interested in doing so here is the schedule of what posts I do on what days:
Sundays – whatever comes to mind
Mondays – Monday Meme (self explanitory - a meme on a Monday - see the post below this one), Monday Meals (usually a tasty meal that is easy to make for those who are “culinarily challenged” or who have children and includes a side dish(es), entrée and a dessert) or Monday Meanderings (what's on my mind)
Tuesdays – Truthful Tuesdays (usually answering questions from the previous weeks HDQ/Ask Nic session) or whatever comes to mind
Wednesdays – HDQ (the "humpy day question") and Ask Nic (ask me a question about anything you want to know about me, but please keep it clean as this is a family blog)
Thursdays – Thankful Thursdays (What Nic is thankful for this week)
Fridays – the FFT (Friday Field Trip – a link to a fun, funny or interesting website) and the Friday’s Feast
Saturdays – whatever comes to mind

It will be possible to have multiple guest bloggers on one day if more than one person wants to do a specific day.
