Wednesday's Random Dozen! Yayyyy!

"♪♫ It's that most wonderful time of the week ♪♫"

Time for another random dozen questions that help us get to know one another better AND maybe even get to know ourselves better! :-)
If you would like to join us, just go to Linda's blog at 2nd Cup of Coffee and join in!! It's that easy! And you just might make some new friends along the way!

Below are my answers, such as they are! :-)

1. Do you do garage sales? If so, tell me about one great find. If not, tell me why not.
Not usually, though I will very occasionally stop at one. The reason I don't do yard sales is because I don't REALLy need anything AND I get so tired doing yard sales. I mean, you go to one, get out of the car, only to find that they don't have anything anyway and on you go to the next one. AND I get to feeling kind of grungy after awhile, looking through all of this stuff that people pulled out of their attics, basements and Lord only knows where else.
BUT I do love to go to our local Volunteers of America store!
Oh, and I've never really found anything THAT great at yard sales and that is not to say that people don't because I have a friend who finds great stuff all of the time! She's addicted! :-)

2. Name the last thing you fixed.
Okay, are we talking food here or something that was broken that needed fixed? Hmmmm....if it is food, I fixed Johnny Marzetti for supper.

3. Name your A) Favorite item of makeup OR B) Favorite tool
Well, I don't wear makeup, except for a little pressed powder on my face if it is shiny and this is usually in the summer when it is really hot, so that would be my favorite!

4. Which room in your home needs organizing more than any other?
Well, I guess it would have to be the extra bedroom at the front of our house. It is where I have my keyboards and alot of Jaylon's bigger toys. It needs cleaned really good.

5. Which room could use re-decorating?
I'd like to redo my whole house!! :-) But especially my living room and kitchen which are kind of together.

6. Share something unique about your town.
We now have all new schools in our community. Five new elementary schools. A new middle school and a new high school complex.

7. If you could send a one-sentence message to your great-grandchild, what would it be?
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength." Mark 12:30 (NIV)

8. Do you Facebook?
Yes, but not nearly as much as I used to. I just don't have the time. Plus it takes away time from my blog and blogging which I don't like. I prefer my blog and blogging. FB tends to make blogging difficult.

9. Describe your favorite shoes.
Oh, this is easy. My Birkenstock sandals, which I've had for several years. Do they ever hold up well, or what? Now, they aren't the most attractive or dainty or feminine shoes in the world but I'll trade that for the comfort they afford! :-)

10. Do you listen to more talk radio or more music radio? What kind of station is it?I would have to say talk radio. I listen to 610 WTVN out of Columbus. They have Glenn Beck in the morning, Rush Limbaugh in the afternoon, John Corby in the evening and Hannity at 8pm.
But I've not been listening much since the presidential election. I just get tired of hearing it all. But I don't listen to much music either. You see, we used to have a really great christian music station but it went out of business, I guess. *sigh*
I love to listen to Focus on the Family, Family Life Today and Family Matters but I can only get them when I am in the car, which doesn't happen very often and it's not like I can go sit in the car and listen when they are on. I'm watching a grandchild. :-)
Now we do have a local christian station but they play ALL southern gospel which I like but I don't want to listen to it exclusively, nor do I want to listen to contemporary only either. I guess I am a bit too picky, hm?
I used to like to listen to Sunny 95 (94.7) in the evening when they played love songs but I can only take so much of Delilah, you know? I just want to tell her, "Would you please just be quiet and play MUSIC?" I even emailed the radio station and complained and they emailed me back, saying that Delilah was one of their most popular programs...yadayadayada.
Before Delilah, they had a male DJ who played music and OCCASIONALLY took a dedication. It was just a relaxing evening of love songs. Delilah is ridiculous. I think she likes to hear herself talk. Me? I'd rather listen to music.

11. How far would you travel for a really good (favorite) meal?
I would drive to Columbus, which is about 65 miles away and we have a few times. Or Parkersburg, which is about the same distance.

12. If you were totally honest with yourself (and us) what should you probably be doing right now instead of blogging?
Sleeping or laying all stretched out in bed reading. *yawwwnnnnn*

And that is where I am going now that I have this post finished! Good night all!! :-)

Delilah kinda grinds my gears, too....tonight, as I was picking up The Girl from Chick-fil-A, she was one and giving advice to a woman who had a child with a man married to another woman and said he was divorcing her. I couldn't even wait to hear her answer...I had to switch stations.

I find the fb blogging balance a little tricky sometimes. There's overlap. I linked my blog to my fb and lots of my rl friends read it that way. I don't do too many status updates though because I feel like I'm always in peoples feed with my blog. I love keeping up with friends on fb though and my youth group from highschool days have connected there and we've been having a really fun running conversation for several weeks now, recalling names and funny experiences. I've even connected with elementary school friends again and its been lots of fun. Feels like we've somehow come full circle and are all back together again.

I've rarely done well at yard sales, either, though I have friends who find great stuff at it. Plus I am like you in that I get weary of the stop and start stuff and then feel funny looking through people's things while they're watching me.

I gave the same answer on #7! ~ I also listen to a lot of conservative talk radio. I don't have TV so radio and internet is where I stay informed. Have a great weekend!

My facebook has pretty much gone by the wayside since I started blogging.
I tagged you in my post today!

Facebook is okay, as long as you can avoid the drama! By the way, my blog has a new address -
I wondered why I haven't heard from anyone... duh.... =0)
