The Random Dozen 3/10

Click on the button to join Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee for her weekly "Random Dozen" meme!

1. How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet?
Probably only about 2 years old. The reason is gross, so of course I’ll share- my feet sweat a lot and my shoes start to smell and I throw them out and buy new ones. So there.

2. Did you buy Girl Scout cookies this year? If so, what variety?
Yes, duh! Thin Mints, Peanut Butter Patties, and Lemonades. I ate most of them myself.

3. Do you know how to ballroom dance? If not, would you like to?
I do not know how but I have always wanted to! Maybe for my 10th Anniversary later this year??

4. Were you a responsible child/teenager?
Ah, this one gets and bit tricky and involves a bit of confession. Yes, I was responsible. I was in lots of clubs, always got straight A’s, and helped take care of my younger siblings when my mom’s rheumatoid arthritis got too bad. On the other hand, I did sneak out of the house a few times and tried my hand with drinking and cigarettes.

5. How many of this year's Oscar-nominated movies did you see?
I’m going to say none. We rarely go to the movies. However, there are some I am anxious to rent some night when hubs is gone and won’t criticize my taste. He’s a movie snob!

6. If you're going to have a medical procedure done, such as having blood drawn, is it easier for you to watch someone else having the procedure done or have it done yourself?
Listen, people. I have had soooo many medical procedures done that I don’t even blink and eye when something new is done to me! But it is completely awful to see my kids get a shot or blood drawn.

7. What is your favorite day of the week and why?
So cliché, but I love Friday. The anticipation of the weekend, having two whole days spread out before you…I love it! Saturdays are always busy and Sunday is just the day before Monday…sigh.

8. Do you miss anyone right now?
My mom. She passed away when I was in college, and man, what I wouldn’t give to share my parenthood insecurities and marriage questions with her.

9. Do hospitals make you queasy?
Nope. See #6.

10. At which store would you like to max-out your credit card. Not that you ever would, you responsible person, you.
I can do some major damage at craft stores! Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn’s…any of them suck me in!

11. Are you true to the brand names of products/items?
For the most part, no. There are two things, however, that I refuse to buy generic: toilet paper and toothpaste!

12. Which is more difficult: looking into someone’s eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someone’s eyes when he/she is telling you how he/she feels?
I don’t have a good answer for this one. Truth-telling can be a scary and difficult thing. I guess if someone is speaking to me about something important, I try to look into their eyes so I can read them better.


  1. Enjoyed your answers. Yep give me the craft store, talk about damage! And I am with you on the GS cookies except the thin mints. Just can't get into chocolate mint!

    until next time... nel

  2. Does it just get worse to watch your kids get shots as they get older and know what is going to happen? I thought I could handle it with Claire, but her shots a few weeks ago ended up being the first time she had real tears and it made me feel so bad!
