Random Dozen

I am joining Linda at 2nd cup for her Random Dozen today. Skip over to her blog when you are done and see how others answered her questions.

But first, I had so many of you ask about the molded butter from my P365 post.....come back tomorrow and I will tell you about how I did it!!

1. Are you pleasant when you're ill, or are you a grumpy, fussy patient? I am not grumpy and fussy, but I just like to hole up in my room and have no body bother me.......so I guess I am not pleasant.

2. When you find out that school is canceled (due to inclement weather) what is your gut reaction? UGH!!! just being real. most of those days turn out to be fun family days, but my first reaction is usually...ugh. Especially b/c our school rarely calls it the night before.

3. What is one domestic skill you wish you could improve? I would like to be a better housekeeper and more organized....ok, that is two.

4. Do you decorate your home for Valentine's Day? nope....who has time?

5. What song is on your mind today? to be truthful, I haven't had a song on my mind today.

6. Do you prefer contemporary movies or classic? I guess I would have to say contemporary.

7. How well do you "compartmentalize" your feelings? For example, how well can you put aside a really trying moment to deal with the immediate situation which is not related to the trying moment, e.g., putting aside a tiff with your spouse in order to finish wallpapering a room. I am really very good at compartmentalizing......sometimes too good.

8. What is the first thing that attracted you to your spouse? (Or if you're single, to your best friend.) that he was so darn cute!!!

9. When was the last time your heart raced? just yesterday driving with my teenager.....enough said.

10. What are your memories of Valentine's Day at school? I always loved decorating the shoe boxes in elementary school and then each student got to go around and put a valentine in each box....so fun for me!

11. If you were going to receive candy for Valentine's Day, which would you prefer? actually by this time of year, I am candied out and am trying to get back on my diet and exercise routine! so if my hubby loves me...no candy!!! However, if I were going to get candy anyway......milk duds.

12. Red or pink? Red all the way!

Have a great Wednesday!!!

Shoe box decorating & delivering is definitely my favorite memory!

Wonder where you got that butter mold? I agree with the who has time thing. Time to get them out? Time to put them up? Time to keep telling Audrey not to touch it's breakable? Time to put them down? Time to put the boxes up? Whew! Makes me tired just thinking about it. Christmas is enough once a year. Speaking of time I hope your life is less crazy lately.

These are so much fun to read.
Milk Duds, I seldom buy them for myself but I do love them.
