Interview and my dream job

Tracey was nice enough to interviewed me and here is how it works:

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.

Now the 5 questions that Tracey asked:

1. Do you believe in love at first sight?This is such an interesting question, because everyone want to believe in love at first sight. But if I go by mine and Vinay's relationship, we were friends for about 2 years before he swept me off my feet. Then I would have to say no. I believe in attraction at first sight but Love is something that has to grow over time.
2. If you could have any job, what would it be? Why? Ahh my dream job. Most of the time I think to myself that what I am doing now is my dream job. I have always wanted to be a mother, and I know that I am so lucky to be able to do this full time and be home with Liv. But lately I have been thinking about returning to work. Now this is the worst time in the world, with the job market and the economy the way it is. But luckily for me, just on the news the other day my dream job became available to me. Actually you may have seen it. Australia's state of Queensland is offering what they quote as "The best job in the world". In an effort to boost tourism they are conducting a worldwide search for someone to live on a private Island, and take care of it. The only catch, you have to blog about your experiences. How cool is that. To be a stay at home mom and do it on a tropical island, it's like the mother ship is calling me home. So of course I clicked on the link they provided to apply. Unfortunately 200.000 other people think they are perfect for the job too and the site crashed. Don't worry though I sent an email to the head of tourism in Queensland, explaining why I'd be best for the job. I'll be holding my breath till he emails me back. Yea right. So I guess that would be my dream job to live on a tropical island, be able to spend time with Liv and be able to write. Oh and get paid to do all of it!!
3. Who inspires you? Why? Regular everyday people inspire me. Right now little Abby and her family are inspiring me. With every post of theirs I am in awe of their faith in God, and of Abby's strength.
4. What are you afraid of? Change. I am a total control freak, something I am working on. And right now my life is in a very stable safe place. I fear that things will change, and they always do, so I am trying to put more trust in God to help me deal with life as it changes.
5. What were you like as a child? As a child I was allot like Olivia is. Quiet and reserved, inquisitive yet very cautious. I had a vivid imagination and was generally a happy kid

Well thank you Tracey for interviewing me. It really helped me with my blogging block.

Now for some needed pictures. These are from last summer, as you can see Liv and I are right at home on the beach

Ahhh to be this warm again. We had snow this morning and tomorrow's high is suppose to be 15 degrees.
I think a tropical lifestyle will fit us well.

Stay warm everyone!!!
