Random Dozen

1. Are you pleasant when you're ill, or are you a grumpy, fussy patient?  Mostly pleasant, but want to be left alone.

2. When you find out that school is canceled (due to inclement weather) what is your gut reaction?  It's been a long time since we had that to happen.  If so it would be for a hurricane warning.  So my reaction would be do we have to evacuate, or not.

3. What is one domestic skill you wish you could improve?  Keeping the house clean.  I clean but it never stays that way.

4. Do you decorate your home for Valentine's Day?  Cant say that I do.

5. What song is on your mind today?              

6. Do you prefer contemporary movies or classic?  contemporary

7. How well do you "compartmentalize" your feelings? For example, how well can you put aside a really trying moment to deal with the immediate situation which is not related to the trying moment, e.g., putting aside a tiff with your spouse in order to finish wallpapering a room.   I'm usually pretty good at it.  Especially you know how on Sunday morning when everything is going wrong.  The kids are grumpy, the husband is running late and you walk in church with a smile on your face.  As if everything is perfect.

8. What is the first thing that attracted you to your spouse? (Or if you're single, to your best friend.)  Not really sure because he's changed so much since we've gotten married.
9. When was the last time your heart raced?  Can't remember.

10. What are your memories of Valentine's Day at school?  Elementary school we always decorated a shoe box for all of our Valentine's to go in.  They don't do that here anymore, they bring them home in a paper bag.

11. If you were going to receive candy for Valentine's Day, which would you prefer?  Anything but the boxes of chocolate, most of that candy just isn't that good to me.  

12. Red or pink?  Pink, definetly.


  1. You have got a LOT going on! (read your profile) I love your song of choice today. I didn't have any song on my mind when I answered my questions... but surfing around other's blogs today, now I have a LOT of them on my mind! lol. I'm laughing at your description of walking into church on Sunday morning. I bet my mother did that a billion times. (I'm the youngest of 7) I go to church by myself now... but I walk in how I'm feeling. One morning I walked in and BURST into tears when Pastor greeted me - 2 minutes before service. Needless to say he made time for me after service. What a DAY!

  2. Love that Steven Curtis Chapman song! We're mid blizzard here today but since my kids are away at school its kind of a non issue. Except my husband is home and a little bit underfoot. He likes to be busy but his office closed today due to the horrendous weather.

    Have a good day!

  3. Yes I love that song. Thanks for sharing, I had not heard that one. I love Steven Curtis Chapman. A friend of mine sang his song "I Will Be Here at my wedding. It was beautiful! Good answers!

    until next time... nel

  4. I enjoy reading these. Thanks for sharing your answers with me.

  5. If you get chocolate, feel free to send it to me! ;)

    This is a great song, but it both breaks and heals my heart because I know why it was written.

  6. My who life's random! And I love it that way.

    Isn't it fun to get a glimpse into the lives of our fellow bloggers?


  7. Hey, Thena, good to get caught up again. Thanks for playing along this week. Hope to catch you next week, too.

  8. Hurricanes!! Yep. The last one messed up a bunch of our pecan trees but we still were very blessed! I grew up near Mobile, Alabama & have been through the destruction of Hurricanes...I have tried to explain it to my husband but if you havent been through just dont know.

    Send me your chocolate please....I would eat a broom if it was dipped in chocolate!!
