5 Question Friday 11/2

 1. What terrifies you the most?  Something happening to my kids.  With my daughter, I worry specifically about her blood sugars, especially at night-- she's had two diabetic seizures, and I worry constantly that she'll have another and I won't catch it in time.  

2. Favorite fall/winter drink?  
Pumpkin flavored coffee.  Mmmmm....   

3. Do you and your spouse have the same political views?  
Kind of.  We're both conservative, and we both enjoy following and talking about politics.   It's funny to us, because years ago we were very much political opposites and prone to loud debates on various political topics.  Over the years I have become much more conservative.

However... he knows a lot more about politicians and history, and can debate anyone on any topic, recalling issues from years ago and how they affect things now.  He's not pro-life and he's not Catholic... two things that I very much am.  I get involved with issues I believe in via protests, letter writing, petitions, and online debates, and he doesn't... partially because of his job in law enforcement, and partially because that's just not his personality.   So yes, our core political views are much the same, but what we do with them is very different. 

4. What was the last book you read? Was it any good?   I received Faithful to Laura (A Middlefield Family Novel) in the mail this week to review, and I sat down and read the entire thing that evening.  I love Amish fiction, and I haven't had a new one to read in a while. :)   So yes, it was good.

5. Do you look forward to the snow each winter? Why or why not? 
NO.  I hate snow, which is a problem, since I live in Ohio.  Snow and being cold both depress me. I hate driving in it, I hate not being able to get out and do things, and I hate keeping the kids cooped up in the house. I'd like to have a few pretty, fluffy snowflakes on Christmas and be done with it, rather than the months and months that we have to endure.  It snowed here earlier this week, by the way.

  1. I'm in Ohio, too. And I have to say: our state sure makes me nervous every election year. Hoping and praying for good things this time. ;)

    Snow is so beautiful and winter without snow seems dull but you're right, it does make simple things like driving more difficult. I wish winter lasted from Thanksgiving to the middle of January and then on to pleasant temps and some sunshine.

  2. WE are in Toronto and actually get less snow than you. I think the lake keeps us warm.

  3. Yummm-- I love pumpkin flavored coffee as well. I need it now to keep me warm!

    We lived in Florida for 14 months and while there all of my winter driving skills went out the window. We have been back in Michigan now for over 6 years and I hate driving in the winter. I get stuck all the time. So I tend to stay in when it snows as well. Glad I am not the only person who ends up staying home rather than driving in the snow!

    I am returning the favor-- thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment!
