Wednesday's Random Dozen

1. How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet? Oh, my, ouch! Well, if we count tennis shoes then probably 4 years old. But, I must confess, I am a "shoe addict." Now, I do try to shop sales, but I have a narrow foot, so that does pose problems at times. And, I clean out often and get rid of shoes that I no longer wear.

2. Did you buy Girl Scout cookies this year? If so, what variety? I haven't bought any yet, but they just went on sale, so I am certain I will. I can't remember a year where I haven't bought some and we are big fans of Samoas and Taglongs.

3. Do you know how to ballroom dance? If not, would you like to? How funny! My husband and I took ballroom dance lessons about 15 years ago and I suppose we did average, but certainly nothing to get excited about. He said I tried to be the leader and wouldn't follow. Duh! So, I guess we know a little about ballroom dancing and we'd love to think that we could dance like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. But...........

4. Were you a responsible child/teenager? Most definitely! My parents taught us responsibility at a very young age and it has served all 3 of us very well throughout our lives.

5. How many of this year's Oscar-nominated movies did you see? Well, I guess this is sad, but only one, The Blindside. We aren't big movie goers and neither do we often rent movies. There seems to always be something else that we would rather do.

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? Having it done myself, I've never been able to actually watch someone having blood drawn, but I do just fine having it done myself, but I DO NOT watch!

7. What is your favorite day of the week and why? I think I would have to say Friday, and I guess that's funny because I do not work outside the home. But, I still have certain things to accomplish each and every day and I try to have the majority of those done by Friday and then I feel free to go and do whatever I desire and I know that my house is in order. I know, I'm weird like that. :o)

8. Do you miss anyone right now? My precious Mom died on Dec. 1, 2008 and I don't suppose a day will go by for the rest of my life that I do not miss her.

9. Do hospitals make you queasy? No, not really.

10. At which store would you like to max-out your credit card. Not that you ever would, you responsible person, you. Well, I can't even imagine something like that, but I think it would be Nordstrom. They have everything from makeup to household furnishings and a fabulous Shoe Department!! ~chuckle~

11. Are you true to the brand names of products/items? In some items, yes, such as Charmin Extra Soft Tissue, and my hubby has to have the real Diet Coke. But, there are many things that I just buy Brand X and can't tell the difference.

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?
In either case it depends on what is being told. If it something that could possibly be emotional, I have difficulty looking into someone's eyes because it often makes me cry. Otherwise, I think eye contact is most important and certainly shows you are interested in what the person is saying.

Here's a picture of Hubby and I in our dreams.........:o)

  1. I liked all your answers! Sometimes I need certain products but alot of times I just buy whatever is on sale. I don't work out of the home either. I would say my favorite day of the week is Sunday!

  2. Those are two of our fave Girl Scout Cookies too.

    I am the same way about wanting everything done before the weekend. Who wants to be cleaning on the weekend right :)

  3. great answers, I loved the picture of you and your hubby how cute!!

  4. Great answers. It's cool that you can dance. Those are our favorite girl scout cookies too.

  5. I've never figured out how to "follow" when dancing!

  6. Enjoyed your fun answers. Thanks for sharing!

    until next time... nel

  7. Loved your answers! I can relate to many of them--except not eating any GS cookies yet. We buy them by the caseload and freeze them--yeah, like they ever make it off the kitchen counter! ;-) Thanks for stopping by--hope you'll come back.

  8. Oh yeah... didnt even think of that - I cant accept substitues when it comes to Diet Coke!

  9. I liked your answers! Thanks for stopping by!

  10. Love it! I love Samoas but didn't buy any this year...being cost conscious, I guess!

    I have never done ballroom dancing and am pretty sure I would be awful at it.

    And I LOVE Friday, not sure why, but I love it!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
