Hodgepodge



1. Turkey-love it or leave it? White meat or dark? What's your favorite thing to make using leftover turkey?

None - thankyouverymuch...

I quit eating red meat almost 2 years ago & this year, I've given up the good ole white meat.  So somewhere, there is a turkey running around, & he's giving me a smile & holding a sign that says, "Thanks for letting me live another day"

you're welcome Mr. Turkey




2. Gotta burn off all those carbs the day after a holiday feast so which would you rather do-run a 10K or climb a mountain?

10K!!! That's actually my favorite distance.  Long enough for a challenge, but not exhausting. 

That being said - you wont see me doing a 10K on Thanksgiving...
My belly will be too full of pie.



3. Do you feel like social networking has made your relationships better or worse? Explain

Depends which relationships you're talking about...

I will say, its done wonders for my Professional Relationships... with being able to post my pictures on Social Media & friends of friends see those pictures, I've been very blessed in word of mouth advertising. 

I also think it makes my relationship with Steven Curtis Chapman a lot closer.  I can see his tweets & his family's instragram pictures.  Its like we're really best friends now :)



4.  How do you find and express gratitude for the hard things in your life?

I dont think its hard to find the hard things in life... they're always there...

Its all about attitude...
remembering that those hard things?  It can ALWAYS be worse... ALWAYS!!!



5.  In the US, the day after Thanksgiving has been dubbed 'Black Friday'. Is most of your holiday shopping done live and in person, or is it done more through the magic of the Internet? How do you feel about stores opening at midnight Thanksgiving night? Will you be out amongst the masses on Friday?
I think, like everything else, we have screwed this up.

Who thought it was great to move it to midnight?
Or even on THURSDAY now?

I always felt like it was a good enough challenge to get up at 4:00am & venture out, but these poor people who have to work now have to leave their families on Thanksgiving, or go to bed early so they can be at work at midnight.

I think that is so wrong...

But I'll be out Friday...
& I wont blame the workers for being grumpy either


6.  Speaking of the color black-which black item in your wardrobe would you say is your favorite?

In my wardrobe?  I have a thing for green or grey right now...


7.  What do you appreciate about your life today?

Today?  I appreciate that I'm off of work!  YAHOOOO!!!!!!!


8.  Insert your own random thought here


No thought....
Just a cute picture of Isaac as an Indian...
 
(See - this is why social media is good... I just snag it off of his mom's FB page...easy peasy)

  2. Cute pic! I agree about them opening the stores on Thanksgiving and I do feel sorry for the workers. But then again, I'm in law enforcement and have worked years and years of Thanksgiving. Although, I haven't had to for the past 10 years. :)
