What are you???

If you do this little quiz let me know...I'd be curious to see what you are..It was an easy fun quiz to do. Hope everyone's well.
take care~

Take this test!


That means you are able to draw on the strengths of both the right and left hemispheres of your brain, depending upon a given situation.


When you need to explain a complicated process to someone, or plan a detailed vacation, the left hemisphere of your brain, which is responsible for your ability to solve problems logically, might kick in. But if you were critiquing an art opening or coming up with an original way to file papers, the right side of your brain, which is responsible for noticing subtle details in things, might take over.


While many people have clearly dominant left- or right-brained tendencies, you are able to draw on skills from both hemispheres of your brain. This rare combination makes you a very creative and flexible thinker.


The down side to being balanced-brained is that you may sometimes feel paralyzed by indecision when the two hemispheres of your brain are competing to solve a problem in their own unique ways.

Happy Birthday Randal!!

Today is Randal's 45th birthday. Courtenay is making him a white cake with 7 minute frosting and coconut on it! MMMMM sounds delicious. We're about to eat a roast venison dinner. I worked all day from 9 to 5:30 then a 20 minute drive home...so dinner is really late!
Randal has requested party games after dinner. ;) Actually not really party games...a board game.
Actually....I think we will pull out the game that Lyle and Paula gave us for Christmas. It looks like alot of fun. It's called "Mad Gab"-but not the regular one. This one is a CD/DVD. Each team has a buzzer/button to push...so I think it's going to be a good one. Well my gravy is needing my attention....so take care....

update again

Hi there friends.
I just want to give a quick update on things here. Randal had a dr. appointment today with our regular doc. He was very pleased with Randal's progress! He was more than pleased actually...He showed us the letter from the neurologist. It said that Randal's improvement is amazing! Our dr. said that he was sooo happy to see how well he was doing. He told us that he had expected that Randal would be using a walker for the rest of his life at best and in a wheelchair more likely than not!! Wow! I was surprised. I had kinda gotten those vibes from reading between the lines when talking with the different doctors over the last couple of months but wasn't really sure if that was just me or not. Apparently it wasn't! We are SO thankful for this!! God is so good to us and a Keeper of His Word! Randal is just using his walker now if we are walking for a bit of a distance, such as shopping or something like that, mostly for balance. His legs tire fairly easily and start to cramp up if he walks for too long. He's been having some symptoms similar to those he had before the surgery so please pray that things don't get back to the place they were again. That's why we went to the dr. today, but he didn't seem at all concerned about it. Randal has an appointment next week with the neurosurgeon though so we'll just talk to him about these symptoms at that point. I think I'd feel more at ease if the specialist was the one to tell us this.
My mil seems to be doing quite well. She has bounced back from her surgery pretty quickly. She is doing much better than we had expected! She looked really bad last week when she came out of the hospital! But now she's perked right up..so thanks for praying for her. I hope that she stays like that now for a LONG time!
you all have a Super Duper New Year!!! :D
