The Interview

A fellow Minnesotan, Laura, just allowed herself to be interviewed, and I asked her to interview me.

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me".
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.

So, here are the 5 questions with my answers...

1. If your husband died, do you think you'd ever get re-married?
I have thought of this one before. My husband's life is always at high risk with his commercial carpentry job. Especially with my beautiful children, I would certainly consider it. Being a parent really takes two! But the whole idea of it just makes me ill to my stomach - so I just trust God will put the right people in and out of my life when he thinks it's necessary.

2. If YOU died, would you want your husband to get re-married?
I've told him to go for it. I am living a low-risk lifestyle.. so there is no real worries there. But you never know. To find true love twice is to be twice blessed. If God brings you to it...

3. If you died, and your husband got married, would you want your kids to call their step-mom "Mom"?
If he picked the kind of woman who would be a great mother to my children, then yes. I don't think he'd chose anything less. Calling her by her first name would be disrespectful. But I'm sure they'd ease themselves into it. Do you recall this situation from "The Sound of Music?" That's what I'd hope for... without all the nazis.

4. If you could pick a method of death, what would it be? (examples: dying of old age in sleep, car crash/instant death, jump from a building, beheading...)
My ideal death would be none at all. I am really hoping to be lifted off this corrupted world into heaven while God renews it into a new Garden of Eden like in the book of Revelations. But if that is not meant to be, I would like to die in my very old age beside my husband, in my sleep, exactly like in the movie "The Notebook."

5. If you could live forever (longer than most human beings but let's say you know you will go to Heaven), what things would you want to do first...what things would you want to learn since you have a REALLY long time to learn them?
After talked to my grandmother before she died, I realized the last thing I want to do is live to be older than 95, unless of course I am able to live as in the book of Revelations (question #4).
And this is kind of a trick question because we will live forever - in Heaven.

Anyways, if the main question is what are my personal worldly goals in life....
a. I've always wished that I could live at least long enough to see my great-grandchildren.
b.Learn to Play Swing Jazz on piano (and dance to it) - I've already started.
c. Learn to paint a realistic looking portrait, like Thomas Kincaide
d. I really want to visit the Ordway and Chanhassen Dinner Theatre.
e. My huge goal is to visit Italy for one month (or more).

Thank you Laura for the questions. If you want ME to interview YOU, go ahead and put "interview me" in the comments to this post and I'll send you some questions...
