Next Question, please?

My blogging friend Susan, from Penless Writer has interviewed me. Here are her questions and my answers.

1. If you could live any where in the world where would you pick?
I would live right where I do. I do get sick of the snow and bad roads, but I really like being able to enjoy the 4 seasons and the beauty of each. Also - I am very close to my family and they all live withing 25- 30 minutes from me.
2. What is the one thing you've done, or accomplished, that you are proudest of?
The thing I am proudest of in my life are my 3 kids. They are all responsible and productive and best of all, they are all Christians. Of course I can't really take responsibility for all of that. God blessed me with kids that were really quite easy to raise. I've told Bob that I think God knew I wouldn't be able to handle difficult kids!
3. How many places have you lived? States? Cities? or Houses if the same place all your life.
I have always lived in Southwest Michigan. I grew up on a farm. My parents built a new house right around the corner from our farm house when I was in 8th grade. When I got married, Bob and I rented a house for a little over a year. We bought a house after that and lived there for 9 years. We then moved to the town Bob grew up in, to be a little more in the country. Each of these places is about 10 miles from the place I grew up in. It's 5 houses in all and as you see, I haven't gone far!
4. If you could go to college today what would you take? Why?
I would do the same thing I do now, which is a nurse. Why? - Because I really like what I do! And - you can always get a job!
5. What one regret do you have in your life?
I remember my Dad telling me when my kids were little to just enjoy them because they grow up so fast. I really did enjoy my kids, but I wish I hadn't worried as much about having the house picked up and the dishes done... and just been more spontaneous to do fun things with them. So - that's my advice to you Mom's with little kids, because it really does go by fast!

Thanks Susan for being nice to me with these questions! If you want to be interviewed, let me know in the comments, If you don't, that's okay too!

I totally understand your No. 1. The older I get, the more I appreciate family.
