Random Dozen

You know, it seems kind of silly to come back after not blogging for an eternity and make you read a "Random Dozen" list when so much has happened since I blogged last. I mean, we had a major holiday, people, yet I somehow have failed to write even one jot or tiddle about it. (Not that I would actually know a jot from a tiddle. I'm just trying to make you think that I'm all Bible-y and stuff. I do, however, know a semi colon from a semaphore.) 
So, before I get to my randomness, which we all know is what I do best here at The Karate Mom, here's a run down of the holidays for you.
Christmas Eve - delicious ham at my dad's house. Yum.
Christmas Morning - kids awake before 6:00, but stayed out of our room. Got them at 6:15. Many packages ripped open. Lots of "Yay! I love this!! My favorite!"  (My family is very gratifying to buy presents for!)

Christmas Day - over to my mom's house for more package ripping and "Yay's!" Lots of laughter when my brother, Erin, gifted us all with "Billy Bob teeth". We are, if nothing else, a silly family. I just KNOW that Troy looks around sometimes and thinks. "What in the world have I gotten myself into?" 
Other Christmas Noteworthiness - It was a white Christmas, so we got to go sledding. Awesome! We spent time with Troy's dad and sisters on different occasions, which was fun. Although no Billy Bob teeth were involved. I wonder...maybe I should invest in some for next year's festivities?
Now everything is back to normal. (HA! Did you see that? I just referred to us as NORMAL right after I posted pictures of us in Billy Bob teeth!) So I'm going to do a Random Dozen!

1. When was the last time you craved a food--what was it, and did you cave?
Ummm, probably some time last month when I was craving something salty. Troy and I decided that it might be that my BODY was needing salt, so he went and bought some Gatorade for me. I think it helped.

2. M & M's or Skittles?
Hmmmm...depends on what mood I'm in. The only think about M&M's is that there's really not all that much chocolate in them. So it's kind of a let down.

3. Have you ever read the Bible completely through?
Not yet, and I'm only seven months behind in my current "Read the Bible in a year" plan! I keep on trucking, though, because I figure it's the content that's important, not the time frame.

4. How long does it take you to really wake up in the morning?
Not long, actually. I do get up much earlier than The Kids, though, because that way I have a couple of cups of coffee in me before I hit "Mom Mode". 

5. Have you ever been on a cruise? If not, would you like to?
Yes, several back when I was a kid. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to go on another one!

6. Who is your favorite actress?

I don't really know. I like lots of different ones, so I can't really narrow it down!

7. ______ is something that I will just never understand.
I want to put something really profound in here. But I'm all seeing, all knowing so there's really not anything I don't understand. Hey. You can stop laughing. Honestly, even though I'm signed up, I don't understand Twitter. I mean, I know HOW to do it, but I don't get why anyone is interested in the tiny little boring details of my life. "Just walked it to the kitchen and got some water! Yay for hydration!" 

8. How much of a technology junkie are you?
Oh, I like new things alright. I'd probably buy more techie things if we had the MONEY!

9. Do you enjoy selecting greeting cards for people, or is it more of a cultural "have to" for you?
They're just too expensive! However, when I am picking one out, I know it's the right one if it makes me laugh out loud in the store. Because, honestly, I rarely buy serious cards. They're just not my style.

OK, apparantly this is actually going to be the Random 9 because for some reason, the last questions didn't get copied and pasted. And I've got a mountain of laundry waiting to be folded. I hate for Troy to get home from work and have the only fruits of my labor be a new blog post.

You crack me up, Lisa. I don't get Twitter either.
