A Blog Interview

Saw Amy at PrettyBabies do this on her blog, and thought it was a great idea...

The Rules:
1. If you want to participate, leave me a comment saying, "Interview me." (And your e-mail address, please.)
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

The Questions Amy Asked Me:
1. What is your biggest fear?

I honestly fear every single day that Anny and Abby will get into a massive car wreck and I will be helplessly stuck in traffic.  The route they take home is major highway to major highway.  Anny is a wonderful and safe driver, so I have no basis for this fear, but it's there nonetheless.  I can't imagine a tomorrow without them.
2. Who is your hero?
This is a hard one.  My grandfather worked his way up through the ranks at NASA, then when it was time to retire he did it right.  He has always made family a priority and has been there for most of the major events in my life.  He drove here from his house to be with us on the day that Abby was born.  He didn't monopolize time with her or us, but just wanted to be a presence on that special day. 

3. If you could eat only one food forever, without regard for nutrition, what would it be?
I'm boring - it would be pizza.  I did that one summer when I decided that I was never going to fit into 34-inch-waist jeans again.  I then discovered just how bad that much potassium is for a person with kidney disease, so now it's more of a treat.  I still eat it, but certainly less than before.  There is so much variety of pizza, and I think that's why I love it.

4. If I gave you $100,000 to go on a trip, how would you spend it? Would you spend all your time in one place, or would you go to as many places as you could? Where? What would you do when you got there?
I can not imagine spending that much money on one place, at least not just for the three of us.  I would probably spend more of it on being sure that my family and friends could be with us wherever we went than on the place itself.  As for the place, I think that Disney is only a couple of years off for us, but I can't ride rides anymore.  I would probably feel more comfortable renting out a camp ground with lots of things to do and lots of places to relax.

5. What are your dreams for Abby's future?
I really just want her to be happy in whatever she is doing.  I want her to take that one "dream job" at some point in her life, even if it means that she'll pay for it later.  Of course, I want that dream job to be all that she dreams it to be, but I can't control that!  I don't think that she has to be a wife, or a college student, or full time employee to be happy.  I want to encourage her daily in whatever she chooses for her own life.  I have people like that in my life, but they are not necessarily my parents.

The bottom line is that I want Abby to know that no matter what she chooses to do, or not do, she is valuable. 

If you want me to come up with five questions for you, drop a comment or an email.  Amy sure does know how to come up with good questions...
