It's Another Random Dozen

Time for another Random Dozen...click the delicious looking doughnuts to find Linda's blog...



1. What was the last thing about which you procrastinated?
Last week's Random Dozen...its still on my Edit Posts page

2. How long does it take you to fall asleep, and do you sleep through the night?
I haven't sleep through the night since I turned 40...what is it about that number? can't sleep through the night, can't see signs when I'm driving at night, can't remember what I left the room for, can't remember to finish blog post questions... 

3. Which decade would you choose to exemplify your favorite fashion styles?
I love the 1940's but my daughter told me recently that I'm beginning to dress like a bohemian (I'm thinking the fake Birkenstocks and the peasant blouse I bought at a flea market a couple of weeks ago might be pushing it a little)

4. What is your personal best dish to feed a crowd?
I make a pretty good mac and cheese...worst dish to feed a crowd would have to be the whole pig we roasted in the ground for three days at Thanksgiving a few years ago...our entire extended family got food poisoning..."Black Friday" took on a whole new meaning for us that year.

5. Are you an impulse shopper? What was the last thing you bought on impulse?
6 toothbrushes (we're a family of five), a bag of onion hamburger rolls, a four pack of Mocha Starbucks and a roll of duct tape. I went into the store to buy a Sunday newspaper. Which I forgot.

6. What is one wish you have for your own funeral?
That when they pass by my open casket, people will say..."she looked so young, you would have never known she was 103"

7. If it's true that joy is in found in the simple things in life, what does your joy look like today?
Mark, Kaitlin, Taryn, and Hayden

8. What is your favorite type of bread?
if its got yeast, comes in a twist-tie bag, hard crust, soft crust, hot out of the oven, or day old...I like it.

9. What trait do you fear developing the most? (Laziness, greediness, grumpiness, etc.)
bitterness...with unforgiveness a close second

10. What trait would you like most to develop?
wisdom

11. Which room in your house best reflects your personality? Why?
our family room...comfortable furniture, family pictures, candles...I'm pretty laid-back...I think its the fake Birkenstocks...

12. How do you maintain balance in your life regarding, work, family, church, other organizations and activities, and blogging?
I use a long pole...

Totally hilarious! My answers are quite similar to yours...don't know if that's good or bad! Thanks for the laugh!

Kirsty said...

Food poisoning for Thanksgiving? Oh you poor thigs!!!
LOL @ #5...I spent $200 at the market today when I went to buy bread and milk, luckily I DID actually remember those items ;)

Mary said...

Great answers! I went to the store a couple of times last week for contact solution...3rd time was the charm! I don't count food as an impulse item...no matter what (chocolate, sweets, etc.) we have to eat, right? :D
Thanks for stopping by!

SouthLakesMom said...

So now you have Mac N Cheese for Thanksgiving? Good plan!

Wonderful answers and a smile to start the day! Thanks!

Joyce said...

Love your answers...I can relate! Do you also now do that thing where you mean to say one word but instead say some other completely random word instead? I hope that's not just me : )

Hi Deb. It's nice to meet you. I hear you about the 40's. I refuse to believe though that it's all down hill from here. I've been attempting the upward climb for a few years. Thank you for your comment and for following. I am not following you as well. Blessings!

Thank you for stopping over, nice to meet you. I had to laugh at your answer for #3, I wear Birkenstocks 24/7/365 and I am 100% Bohemian! Are you trying to be me?
103 ~ you go girl! Wisdom is a great answer. Have a great Wednesday.

Mine is here
Nice to meet you.
Happy Wednesday!

Susanne said...

Yup the Birkenstocks will do it. LOL.

#1 cracked me right up. I've had a few of those too.

Nel said...

You are too funny. I love reading your answers. Your funeral one cracked me up. I want my casket closed at the church, cause if someone says she looks so natural, I might reach up and slap them. How can I look natural, I am dead! lol. Thanks for following, hope you enjoy!

until next time... nel
