Five Questions

Shannon posted this...so I'm playing along: Answer these 5 random questions about yourself and post your answers for the rest of us to enjoy.

If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
That's a no-brainer, and my entire family will know the answer before I give it. Cereal. Now that I'm 8 months pregnant that's pretty much the only food I eat anyway. This kid could come out looking like Captain Crunch!

What's the most nerve-racking "close call" you've ever had?
Me or my kids? For me...a few car accidents in high school. For my kids....watching my daughter run over my baby boy's head with her bike. Yep, that sent me into a tizzy. And, watching my oldest son trip over my foot to split his forehead open on a coffee table. A few more centimeters and he would've lost an eye. Thank God for guardian angels.

Name five features your ultimate dream house would have.
1. First-floor master bedroom.
2. Heating/Air conditioning systems for each floor.
3. In-ground pool WITH a pool cleaning service.
4. Landscaping assistance for LIFE b/c my thumbs are nowhere near green.
5. Laundry chute.
(Yep, I'm the practical type. All the fluff is just too much work to keep up with.)

Who has been the most influential non-relative in your life?
Wow...might have to come back to this one. I wish there were one, but I don't think there is. I am influenced most by thoughts, beliefs, faith and the Word of God - not people. Ok...wait...Francine Rivers. Her books have influenced me tremendously. There, I did it!

What one non-physical feature would you most like to change about yourself?
My inability to change. I have become more flexible in the years since I've had children, and my husband is rubbing off on me. But I still freak out a little (ok, a lot) when things don't go according to plan.

I'd love a home with radiant floor heating. That would be just luxury.

Why would you want the master bedroom on the first floor? My dream house has that room on the second floor. LOL

We have lived in houses w/ a first-floor master, a second-floor master, and a ranch w/ a split floor plan. A first-floor master was my favorite b/c it put my husband and I between all the children in house, it forced me to keep my bedroom clean b/c it was accesible to guests, it was easier to get laundry put away b/c the laundry room was in the basement, and it gives more room for larger bedrooms upstairs. I'm sure there are other reasons, but those are the ones I can think of right now.
