It wasn't easy! We had brought and OLD trailer with the goal of fixing it up to move onto land when we got the land (get trailer paid for, then get land, move trailer, pay off land). Well it was in HORRID shape. It wouldn't have been a big deal if we had been on our land. Outside showers, bathing, cooking wouldn't matter and we would have been able to set up a nice area, but we were living in a small trailer park. So it was rough! We stayed in a hotel a few times when it got to be too much (a real shower! and a flushing toilet!)

1. What site(s) do you visit every day? facebook, sadly

2. What did you want to be when you grew up? A doctor, for years and years. I took pre-med reqs in college, but ended up being a music major. I didn't want to teach music, however. Finally I graduated from university and realized I wasn't ever going to go to med school, so I went out and got a crappy job. I regret now that I can't teach music. I think about going back to school. I always thought if I didn't become a doctor I'd regret it for the rest of my life, but I don't.

3. How many individuals live in your house? 4

4. What was the last food you ate? coffee...OK, the last food I ate was ice cream, but that's kind of funny since I rarely eat ice cream since I don't much care for it usually.

5. What food could you eat every day for a month? cereal...not that I love it, but I once ate the same breakfast of bran flakes in reconstituted powdered milk every day for a year

6. Finish this sentence: I wish I were more ______. vocally talented.

7. What makes you proud of yourself? Hmmmm...when I do something I didn't think I'd be able to do.

8. If you could have any super power, what would it be? The ability to travel great distances very quickly. Like apparating or something.

9. Tell us something "surprising" or something we wouldn't know about you. I'm going to China in about 6 weeks.

10. Tell us something funny that your kids (or pets) did or said, that cracked you up. My kids say funny stuff all the time. Yesterday I sang a solo in church and was telling my husband that everyone loved it and my 11 year old said, "How do you know? Did you go up to every single person and ask them if they loved it?"

She (or her sister) also randomly stole a sock I'd kicked off in the middle of the night and in the morning, I found it in their water bowl.
