Brain Test

Autumn and Dawn did this. Their results made me curious so here are my results:

Your Brain Usage Profile:
Auditory : 53%
Visual : 46%
Left : 50%
Right : 50%

Kathie, your hemispheric dominance is equally divided between left and right brain, while you show a moderate preference for auditory versus visual learning, signs of a balanced and flexible person.

Your balance gives you the enviable capacity to be verbal and literate while retaining a certain "flair" and individuality. You are logical and compliant but only to a degree. You are organized without being compulsive, goal-directed without being driven, and a "thinking" individual without being excessively so.

The one problem you might have is that your learning might not be as efficient as you would like. At times you will work from the specific to the general, while at other times you'll work from the general to the specific. Sometimes you will be logical in your approach while at other times random. Since you cannot always control the choice, you may experience frustrations not normally felt by persons with a more defined and directed learning style.

You may also minimally experience conflicts associated with auditory processing. You will be systematic and sequential in your processing of information, you will most often focus on a single dimension of the problem or material, and you will be more reflective, i.e., "taking the data in" as opposed to "devouring" it.

Overall, you should feel content with your life and yourself. You are, perhaps, a little too critical of yourself - and of others - while maintaining an "openness" which is redeeming. Indecisiveness is a problem and your creativity is not in keeping with your potential. Being a pragmatist, you downplay this aspect of yourself and focus on the more immediate, the more obvious and the more functional.

I see myself in some areas. I read this to Richard and he agreed that it had me pegged some. Kind of fun and interesting.

Black Friday Shopping

So, I've never been shopping on black friday...that I can remember. I don't like driving in crowds or shopping in crowds but you will do things for your children that you wouldn't normally do. Hope wanted to go shopping and Richard had to work soooo we went shopping. It wasn't bad. I was surprised. Mom, Dad and Autumn joined us for a while. The worst, if you could call it that, was standing in line at Kohls for 15 or so minutes waiting to check out.

The best thing for the day happened at Belk. Hope and I were looking at the WillowTree figurines. I found one that someone had apparently dropped....the head had fallen off and was beside the figurine, hidden behind some boxes. I was curious and so I turned it over to find out the name of the piece. Are you ready for this? It was called "Good Health". It struck me funny and I showed it to Hope. We just sat there and giggled. A good memory :) I'm glad she convinced me to go shopping.
