1. What is one food you could eat everyday?
Chipotle steak burrito bowl with rice, black beans, corn, and cheese. I get a bag of their chips and use the chips instead of a fork to eat it all, YUM! I actually ate it for lunch and dinner for a solid week once so I know I could do it everyday. Never see myself tiring of that one!
2. Are you working in the career you thought you would be when you were 18?
No, never did have that one. While I wanted to be a lawyer when growing up, the idea of such a lengthy time in school did not appeal to me. Once I reached 18 my goal was to be a wife and mom, with the intention of staying home and raising kids. I never had that opportunity and now that my kids are adults it is a lost dream. In my mid 30s I thought I wanted to be a sign language interpreter but with one class left life dealt us an interesting card – kinship foster parents for 4 kids. I took off school for a year and then I just never went back. I can still sign but the skills are weak and the language so complex that I would need to repeat a lot of classes in order to get back to where I need in order to interpret.
3. What is something that you wish you would have done when you were younger and you didn’t?
I really wish I had gone to college MUCH younger than my mid 30s, like in my 20s! However it is never to late to return to school and I am giving serious consideration to going back..just as soon as I figure out what it is I’d like to learn.
4. What color are your kitchen walls?
I guess you’d call it a shade of olive green. It actually is a cheerful and warm color, one that gives a feeling of peace. I really love our kitchen.
5. Do you remember what your very first favorite song was?
WOW no, but it was on a Donny Osmond album, probably his first one? Most likely “Puppy Love” but not completely certain. Dang that goes so far back in time…
