1. What do you do when you have time to yourself?
Read! I love getting lost in another world created in a story. I left the world of Fork and jumped into Hogwarts. I just finished reading the Harry Potter Series and loved every minute of it. I hate to admit it being a diehard Twilight fan, but the last book of the series, The Deathly Hallows was one of the best fiction books I have ever read.
Writing. I don't get much time for it but I love to write. Short stories, poems. I did a lot more of it before having kids.
2. When you look out your kitchen window, what do you see?
My neighbors house.
3. Who/What would you want to be reincarnated as?
An Ice skater. I love watching figure skating and think it would be so cool to get to do that. The graceful routines they get to do. What an expression of their soul to get to skate a beautiful performance to a song that is meaningful to you. Like when Scott Hamilton did a beautiful performance to Amazing Grace back in the 80's. Not to mention all of the beautiful costumes.
4. What is your biggest pet peeve about other people's kids?
Cleaning up after them. I don't like cleaning up after my own kids but I really resent having to clean up after other people's kids. I also have a hard time when they are distructive with my kids toys. My kids are trained to take care of their toys and it is hard when other kids play to rough with toys or break their favorite toys. This is for another post. I still have issues of being a church planter's wife and having other people's kids in my home a lot.
5. Regular or Diet soda?
There is nothing better than a foutain Dr. Pepper over crushed ice. But I am learning to like diet coke.
