Linda over at has posted her dozen random questions. Here are the answers to mine, come join in on the fun.

1. What is something that you have changed your mind about either recently or over a number of years? Probably child-rearing. I seem to get more relaxed by each one. Poor Megan my oldest I was probably the most strict, and now Makayla my youngest is so spoiled it's a shame.

2. Choose either subject, but does your a) church b) job feel more like a dental chair experience or an easy chair (recliner) experience?
Well since Im a stay at home mom as we all know it can go from an easy chair experience to a dental chair experience in record time. lol
Church as I have blogged before we have found a wonderful church here in Statesboro. I miss the people at the church we left. But when you can find a church that still preaches God's word and stands on the truth of it, that's awesome. Even if you are tossed into the dental chair at times it's for our own good.

3. Kisses or hugs? hugs

4. What do you think is the biggest threat to families today? Less and less families are in church so future generations won't know about the love of Jesus.

5. A day after you grocery shop, you open a perishable item that is horribly spoiled. Do you take your receipt back to the store to be reimbursed or just throw it away and forget about it?
Probably just toss it and forget about it.

6. What personality trait (feel free to address good or bad or both) do you notice yourself adopting from your parents?

My Dad: I'm relatively quiet and laid-back. His looks, I've been told I look like him and his Mom.

My Mom: None really, that I can think of other than speaking our mind. When were pushed against a wall we say whats on our mind. I wish I had her trait of cleaning. Her house is spotless and always have been even when there was six of us children at home.

7. How many slices of bread do you leave in the bottom of the bag when you throw it away? Two? Three? Just the heel? None? (I really want to know if you eat the heel.)
Just the heel. Always just toss it.

8. What mispronunciation or usage error really irritates you? That the kids these days are writing the cell phone lingo. My worry is will they eventually think that's the correct way of spelling. I don't think that lingo will work in the job world.

9. In honor of the uniqueness of today's date, what does the numeral 9 mean to you? (Any special life moments attached to the 9Th? Are you the 9Th kid in your family? Can you count by 9s really fast? etc.)

All I have is that Makayla is 9 right now! The number 19 now that's a whole different story in itself.

10. Does the general color palette in your closet match the colors you chose to decorate your home with?

No most everything in my closet is black. My home is more neutral colors with some bright ones thrown in in the bedrooms.

11. When you're hanging out with friends in the kitchen, do you automatically ask to help, or do you sit there and chat until the host asks if you'd like to help? I'm not implying that the 2ND choice stems from rudeness or laziness, just not a first-response like it is for some people.

I always offer to help, whether they accept it or not is their choosing. Then if it seems to be taking a while or they're overwhelmed I will offer again.

12. Let's end on a pleasant note: What do you enjoy about September the most?

The beginning of cooler weather. After heat indexes of up to 110 I'm definetly ready for at least some temps around 70.


  1. I think everybody gets a little more relaxed in raising kids with the younger ones. With the first one, you think every decision you make is absolutely critical to the outcome of who and what they grow up to be! By the time the younger ones come around, we've figured out that they really do come with their own personalities and not EVERYTHING can be influenced by us! ;)

    Enjoyed your answers!

  2. I am with on you on youngest truly has it the easiest! I think the rest of our answers are alot alike!! 70 degree weather sounds heavenly!!! I am sooo ready for it!

  3. These are so much fun! I have learned so much just from reading your answers. Your closet and home sound so much like mine and I too, am wishing, praying and begging for much cooler weather.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  4. Seventy degree weather? Yes please! Soon! (Not until after Christmas for me.)

    #4 - many years ago when I moved to Vegas I was appalled to find children in my classroom who had never heard of Jesus -- and I couldn't teach them! It distressed me and I prayed, "Please God, send someone to teach these children!" Well, as far as God was concerned there was already a someone -- me! -- and what he sent was a way for me to teach those children.

    Sidewalk Sunday school is a program that takes church to children who are not taken to church. I held Sunday School every Saturday morning on the school play ground and would have from 50 to 100 kids weekly (average about 65).

  5. LOL @ #1. I feel the same way about my kids. My youngest is so spoiled.

    I liked all your answers. #2 was great. I love hearing about churches still preaching the truth.
