22 Random Facts About Me

This was another Q and A I saw on Facebook a while back and thought it would make a good blog post.  If you are like me, it's always interesting to know more "tid bits" about folks. So, in case you are interested..........

1. Do you make your bed every morning?
Well, depends on what you call "make." ~chuckle~ I don't always put the spread, the pillow tuck and the pillows on the bed, but our bed is always made.  That means sheets are straightened, retucked , and  and folded back very neatly and the pillows are always fluffed and all is ready for us to crawl in a neatly made bed that night.

2. What was your first car? 
I did not have a car until after I was married.  I occasionally got to drive our family car before that.  My first car was a red Pontiac Firebird  with a white vinyl top that my Hubby and I bought shortly after we married.  

3. What two grocery items do you never run out of?
Only two???  Well, I'd have to say bread and cheese.  I guess that sounds weird but cheese toast is a staple at our house.  No joke!

4. At what age did you start doing your own Laundry?
Hummmm.......I never remember doing my own laundry until after I got married.  That's hard for me to believe because I had a lot of responsibility around our house growing up but I don't  remember ever doing my own laundry.

5.if you could, would you go back to high school?
I do have fond memories of my high school years but not fond enough to go back. 😆

6. Can you parallel park in under 3 moves?
Even if I do say so, I am a VERY good parallel parker.  And, of course, the backup screens in vehicles today make it all the easier.  

7. A job you had which people would be surprised you had?
Money was very, very tight when I was a teenager and I was always looking for ways to make money.  During the summer when I was 15 and 16 I cleaned two of our neighbors houses and did their ironing.  I was thrilled too death with the little bit of money I made.

8. Do you think aliens are real?

9. Guilty pleasure?
I love Shark Tank and have probably watched EVERY episode!  I enjoy those trying to get a deal and I enjoy watching the Sharks reactions to the various products, services, etc. And, finally seeing those that land a deal. I have never watched any other show as much as Shark Tank in my life.

10. If the world ends, do you want to be one of the survivors?
I'm proud to say that I have the guarantee of being an ETERNAL survivor because I know Jesus Christ as my Savior.  As a result, I am going to live forever in my heavenly home. 

11. Sweet or salty?
A little of both but prefer salty a little more

12. Do you enjoy soaking in a nice hot bath?
I do but I NEVER take the time to do it.  We have an awesome spa tub in our Master Bath and I've only been in it one time since we moved in this house 4 years ago. 
~what a shame~

13. Do you consider yourself a strong person?
I really do.  I've surprised myself over the years how often I've had to pull myself up by my bootstraps and trudge forth.  I might break after the fact but I  do what I have to do when I have to do it.

14. Something people do that drives you nuts?
Folks that have no clue about time or organization if it affects me.  Hey, if it doesn't affect me, well, no BIG deal.

15. Do you have any birthmarks? 
I always wanted a birthmark when I was little but I did not and still do not have one.

16. Favorite childhood game?
Monopoly. Our family did not have a TV until I was 9 years old so we filled our time playing games.  I have the fondest of memories of us gathered around the kitchen table playing games.

17. Do you talk to yourself?
I did as a child, all.the.time.  But, guess I outgrew it but on a rare occasion I might revert back to my childhood. ~chuckle~

18. Do you like doing jigsaw puzzles?
Not particularly

19. Tea or coffee?
Oh, COFFEE all the way!  My days begin with a fresh cup or two and it's not unusual for me to enjoy it in the afternoons in cooler weather.  I love me some coffee!!!!

20. First thing you remember wanting to be when you grew up?
Besides a wife and mother, I always wanted to be a nurse.  But, that wasn't in the cards but I have been a long time care giver and that's often sort of like being a nurse. ~smile~

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Interesting facts about you. I always answer those questions in my head as I read them. Many of your answers area also mine. I have a nice tub that I seldom take the time to use. I love coffee and yes to monopoly:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  2. I enjoyed getting to know a little more about you Lea. Amen to #10.

  3. I also don't remember doing laundry at all until I left for college. Thanks for sharing your answers. We are opposites on the bath question. I take a few baths every week. And yes, you are one strong lady and an incredible caretaker. I remember being so amazed by how many family members you have cared for when you shared that here.

  4. My first car was a 1967 Pontiac Firebird convertible. White over red. Very rare automatic on the column with plaid bench seats. A father - daughter restoration project.

    Have a lovely day!

  5. I might have to look at Shark Tank. Ashamed to tell you I thought it was about sharks in the ocean! LOL I haven't had a bath in over 25 years! I do not like sitting in a tub of water. Showers only. Maybe if I had a spa tub it would be different? I enjoyed this post!!

  6. Yes this was an interesting post although I think I knew most of this info about you. I have never watched Shark Tank and I take at least two long soaking baths a week. Other than that our answers would be quite similar.

  7. Very interesting post. I may have to borrow it from you:) Can't believe you haven't used that spa bath!!! We only have a shower in our master, but I do love it. Haven't actually taken a bath in a tub in years. I guess I really don't believe in "aliens" but can't help but wonder sometimes if God only made this one universe. Wouldn't it be interesting to know if He did??? I am on the fence with the jigsaw puzzles...I have a hard time making myself start one but when I do it gets under my skin and I just MUST finish it. My granddaughter will sometimes want me to start one and we work on it together. And I do have to admit...I often talk to myself (in a way). If I have to teach a Sun. Sch. lesson or give any kind of presentation I will practice it out loud for days! Also, if I'm driving out of town alone I will come up with a topic to talk "out loud" helps to pass the time. Hmmm...does that make me a little ditzy???

  8. #8. I agree with you; I don’t believe aliens are real.

    #10 I’ll be with you for eternity. Praise God!

    #12 You need to spoil yourself and take more baths in your luxury tub!

    #20 You may not be a nurse but you are a real cheerleader and advocate for your dad, so I think you’ve fulfilled that dream.

  9. I LOVED this friend and found myself nodding at so many. Our family loved games growing up and still do, Monopoly was a favorite and my daddy always had to be the “car!” Never did my own laundry til I got married either nor do I take the time to run a bath. Hope your weekend has been great!

  10. Enjoyed learning new fact about Lea, you and I would have had the same answer on most, Thanks for sharing.

  11. I always enjoy reading about other bloggers. Love your answer about being a survivor when the world ends.

  12. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542
