Random Dozen

1. Please share one memory of your high school graduation. Pics would be great!
I have no pics to share. I remember partying all night at a hotel. That was over 20 years ago and that is all I can remember.

2. What is one "emergency use" item you keep in your vehicle at all times?
Jumper Cables and blankets. I have been stuck on a Toll Road for hours during a winter storm with a dying battery (and I accidentally turned off the engine when I stopped to catch a nap)--not fun.

3. In your region, do you celebrate graduation open houses?
If so, I am unaware.

4. Tell me one truth you believe about motherhood.
It is the toughest job you will ever have.

My earphones for my blackberry.

6. On average, how many pieces of junk mail do you receive daily?
At least one to two.

7. Do you like to shop by catalog?
I don't because you can't see length, feel fabric and it is hard to judge if it will really be comfortable.

8. Is lawn maintenance at your house a "his job," a "her job" or "his/her job" or "that's why we have teenagers" job?
His job, I have incredibly horrible allergies.

The kitchen. There has been no colors picked out, the appliances don't match, and don't get me started on the counter space.

10. Do you read a newspaper regularly, or do you read most of your news on line?
I get most from being online.

11. Do you believe everything happens for a reason?
Yes, I do as much as I hate that sometimes. I do like the fact that I am looking for what I will learn from it all.

12. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
I am more worried about doing things right. Unfortunately today people are watching and waiting for you to screw up. It sucks.

Random Dozen

Check em out:

1. Have you ever been so lost that you were really afraid?
I was with someone in another city and state and it was late and I knew that we were in a rough neighborhood. I kept asking if he knew where we were and of course he said he did, but he fessed up later that he didn't.

2. Have you ever been to an island?
I have not had the pleasure of an island, yet.

3. Are you more of a thinker or feeler?
Man, I am truly a thinker.

4. Do you tend to see issues or situations in life as black and white or shades of gray?
I tend to see things in black and white. I realize this sometimes when I have ideas about things I hadn't thought about other issues. I am working on this though.

5. If you were stuck on an island, what book would you hope to have with you (Let's pretend the Bible is already there, so you can't say that.)
A Stephen King book. I am not much for just sitting and reading a book but I at least know his books are awesome and long.

6. What are you most afraid of?
Right now....TRUST is something I am wrestling with right now. I have been burned/hurt so much that right now it is easier for me to cut myself off then to put any effort into someone or something. I do not like this about me right now but it is where I feel safe at the moment.

7. Would you rather lose all of your old memories or never be able to make new ones?
I would lose all my old memories as much as they mean to me I can't image not making new ones.

8. Pretend I'm looking at a scrapbook page about you. There are three spaces for you to drop in individual pictures. What are those pictures of, and why did you select them?
Niagra Falls--where I want to visit. I love the water!
Bowling on a League--I love bowling and with my back I can't lift a bowling ball anymore.
Me with ALL my grandkids--they are the light of my life.

9. If you were re-doing your wedding, what would you do differently? (If you're single, tell me one thing you would do if you were planning a wedding OR huge party.)
I would hope that the friends that went with me would drag me back home and not put myself through what I have been through. I am very serious about that statement!!!

10. Tell me one thing you know/believe about forgiveness.
That people forgive, but they don't forget.

11. You're waiting in a doctor's office. What is your favorite way to pass that time?
Thank goodness for my Blackberry to pass the time. Usually texting or checking blogs.

12. If there were a clone of you in a parallel universe what is one way you hope she/he would be the same as you and one way you hope she/he would be better?
I would hope they would have the spirit and positive attitude I used too have.
I would hope they would be better by taking care of herself better than I have.
