What is something that you wish you had been warned about?
This question could be taken many ways. The first thing that pops into my mind is... I wish I had been warned that relationships, ALL relationships, are really tough, tiring, and eternal work. I do not mean this in only a negative way. I simply mean that in order to keep relationships with friends, spouses or partners, siblings, children, co-workers, etc, you need to put those folks first and make time for them. In elementary school and high school, it's so easy to have time for your friends -- but as an adult? Wow! It's challenging to find enough time in a day to eat 3 healthy meals, sleep and shower, and now I have to work REALLY hard to keep my friendships going too...
What is the most significant difference between you and your significant other?
SIGH! Where do I start? It would be a bit of an understatement to say that Husband and I are polar opposites. Most significant difference would either have to be A) he does not believe in God or religion, but I am a born-again Evangelical Free Christian [you can imagine some of our challenging issues raising wee ones with such a different worldview] OR B) I talk TO think and process things, but Husband thinks FOREVER before he mutters a single syllable or talks. We communicate and process information differently, which makes for easy mis-understandings.
What are three words you would use to describe yourself?
Feisty, Enthusiastic, Compassionate
What do you listen to while driving in your car?
If I am in the car by myself, I always listen to National Public Radio (NPR) or Minnesota Public Radio (MPR) -- the news/talk stations. I think Minnesota has one of the all-time best state public radio stations in the country. I LOVE TALK RADIO! If the wee ones are in the vehicle, I usually have the radio off so I can listen to them chatter about their day, or bicker with each other.
What is your least favorite thing about fall?
My least favorite thing about autumn is that after all of the gloriously beautiful leaves fall off the trees and the air becomes nippy at night, it means there is one inevitable thing about to happen in Minnesota... SNOW! Sigh. I hate shoveling, and driving in it, and freezing your duff off... but it's all worth it to experience the other three grand seasons in my fabulous state.
