Wednesday Random Dozen in the nick of time!

Hellur. I'm beat. Jaylon has been sick today with a fever, diarhea *sp*, and just not feeling good. We took him to the doctor and it's either teething, 24-hour virus, or possibly C-diff, for which he is being tested. I think it is just a combination of teething and virus. Poor little guy. Today is the first day, in a loooooong time, that I can remember in which we didn't read his "bookies". Poor little thing. But we did cuddle alot as he just didn't feel good at all. Hopefully, prayerfully, tomorrow he will be much better!
Needless to say, I'm more than a bit weary tonight BUT I press on......to do my random dozen! (Because I know you look forward to it, Bethany! *smile* Love ya!!)

1. How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet?
Hmmmm......about 4 years old, if my memory serves me correctly. I cleaned my shoes out awhile back and got rid of the ones I no longer wore.
2. Did you buy Girl Scout cookies this year? If so, what variety?
No, but my DH did. He is such an easy mark. He bought the chocolate/peanut butter ones. AND he had just told me, this past Saturday as we were going into Walmart where some girl scouts were selling their cookies outside, that he would not pay that kind of price for those cookies. uh-huh. right. :-)

3. Do you know how to ballroom dance? If not, would you like to?
No and no. I'm too tired to even think about it. Oh, and did I mention that I don't have the time, either? *grin*
4. Were you a responsible child/teenager?
Well, I made my bed AND my brother's bed every morning before I went to school. I helped with the dishes every night after supper. I did my share of the ironing every week. I helped dad in the garden when no one else would. I mowed my share of the grass every week.....just to name a FEW of the responsibilities I had while growing up.
Yes, I believe I was a responsible child/teenager. :-)

5. How many of this year's Oscar-nominated movies did you see?
Blindside and it was sooo good!
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?
Either one is okay.

7. What is your favorite day of the week and why?
Friday because it is the last day of the work week AND I get every other Friday off. AND the next day is Saturday which really is a day off. :-)

8. Do you miss anyone right now?
Does my bed count? *yawn*

9. Do hospitals make you queasy?
No, should they? I thought that is where you are supposed to go if you ARE feeling queasy for an inordinately long amount of time?

10. At which store would you like to max-out your credit card. Not that you ever would, you responsible person, you.
Hmmm.....this is kind of tough, seeing as how I don't like to shop. It would have to be a store that has everything and a great selection. Before it went out of business, I would have said Value City in Lancaster. Now, I have no idea. Any suggestions? :-)

11. Are you true to the brand names of products/items?
Just certain ones. Tresemme' 2 hairspray. Dortios. Dawn dish detergent.
I'm always willing to try an off brand or house brand of something, except for the above named items of which I am sure there are others that I am just too tired to remember.
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 problem or difficulty doing either.

OH Man...I wish I would have thought of 'my bed' for number 8.

I grew up with Dawn dish detergent, tried some others and now it's nothing but Dawn.

I like Tresemme' 4.

Hope your little guy is feeling better tomorrow. And that he did not share his germs : )

I'm up far too late tonite too...hubs is out of town and I am wound up for some reason. Very unusual because I'm usually out early.

Enjoyed your answers. Hope the little guy is feeling better! Thanks for stopping by my blog and your sweet comments. The tulips header was a picture I took at Evangel College here in Springfield. They were sooooo pretty! It was taken two years ago. Always fun to get to know more about each other thru Random.

until next time... nel

Hopr Jalon is feeling better and you don't share germs of endearment. Our granddaughter was sick last week, and it wasn't a pretty scene.

I don't buy Girl Scout cookies either. My wife does it for me. She knows what I like.

LOL @ #8. :-)

I want to see Blindside.

Bethany said...

Thank you Aunt Jewel :-) I do enjoy reading these...especially this week, gave me a few giggles after a long week! love you!

Jewel, I always enjoy my visit when I stop by! I don't like shopping either. If someone else would pay the bill after I maxed out the credit card though, I might just have to take them up on it.
