Random Dozen

It's Wednesday again so time for another Random Dozen.  If you haven't joined in yet you are truly missing meeting other great bloggers that will make you laugh, cry, and encourage you all in the same day.  So hop on over to Linda's  for the questions and link them at the bottom of her post.

1. Have you ever fired a gun or shot a bow and arrow?  Not that I can recall.  Growing up with 4 brothers I can remember my Dad taking them to learn to shoot guns, but I guess I was labeled too fragile.  We did have archery in P.E. in High School but I don't remember much about it. 

2. Do you know where your childhood best friends are?  Some of them.  I know what cities they are in but that's about all.  My closest one that lived in the same neighborhood, tried to seduce my first husband while we were still married so we don't exactly keep in touch. 

3. Do you usually arrive early, late, or on time?  I would have to say on time, even though my husband would say late.  But honestly I don't arrive late that often.

4. Are you more of a New York or California type?  New York seems hurried and crowded and California seems more laid back, hang out at the beach.  So I guess I would be more Cali type.

5. Do you have a special ring tone? no can't say that I do.

6. What is your favorite type of chip?  Guess it would have to be KC Masterpiece.

7. Best comedy you've ever seen is ....  My mind is blank at the moment. 

8. Have you ever cut your own hair? To quote Dr. Phil, "How'd that work for ya?"  I can remember cutting my bangs when I was younger.  Dont think they turned out too awefully bad.

9. If you were going to have an extreme makeover, would you rather it be about your house or your personal self?
  My house, definetly.  We bought it a little over two years ago and stripped all the wallpaper and painted.  I HATE the color the living room/dining room turned out.  So I eventually have to re-paint it.  Needs alot of updating shall we say. 
10. Are you allergic to anything? long-haired cats, and so far my two oldest children are also. 
11. Why is it so hard to change?  We like routine.  I think it's also our nature to be just a little stubborn.  Well a lot stubborn for some.  LOL 

12. One last question dedicated to February love: CS Lewis said, "To love is to be vulnerable." Please share one example of that assertion or share any thought you'd like to about this topic.  I believe it's our human nature to want to feel loved by other people.  Sometimes we make wrong choices to try and have that love.  When if only we could realize we have the greatest love of all and that is the love of our Heavenly Father.  Through Him we can love others as He does.


  1. Wow! #2 would be a definite friendship killer!

  2. Wow this one got some good answers!!!

  3. Hi Thena! #2-yikes! Enjoy your day!

  4. I too love KC Masterpiece Bar B Que chips but notice that they aren't really making them in the big bags any longer. Have you noticed that as well.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  5. It's always interesting to peak into the thought-life that makes up who we are. I LOVE the reference/quote by Dr. Phil, and I found myself asking about the reason I think change is so hard. I came up with: Insecurity; the need to control.

    Blessings for a California-sorta day!

  6. Love your answers. Wow, I can see how it'd be hard to be friends with someone who tried to seduce your husband. What nerve! Hope you're having a great day...enjoyed my visit.

  7. Beautiful answer to #12. I did that in HS too!
    I am so stubborn when it comes to change.
    Have a blessed week.

  8. Bet there's no way you were too fragile w/ 4 bros...i don't have any brothers...always wanted one.

    Seducing your first husband while you were still married...wouldn't get my vote for 'friend' either.

    Go, KC Masterpiece!

    Go, love of our Heavenly Father!

  9. Great answers! Love your response to No. 12! Amen, sister!

  10. I hope you can find a color you like soon lol...and that stinks about that chick trying to seduce your husband...that is insane!

  11. Enjoyed your answers. Love your answer to #12. Random Dozen is a lot of fun. Nice to get to know people better.

    until next time... nel
