I love these stupid things.  The idea of answering these with one word was a unique challenge – its interesting to think of which questions took me a long time to answer.  One of them was #9.  In the last year, I have achieved a number of my dreams and goals.  I have a wonderful husband, we own a home and a business we love, I have a son AND I was able to quit my day job to be home with him, and I'm doing art again.  Much of our life feels very complete.  So, what's next?  I believe in always having goals and dreams, so I really had to think about this one.  I'll likely think more about it later.  Anyway, my answer relates to #13.  We want very much to return to the Snohomish community.  It is home to us.  So, my dream and goal is for one day to live on one of those lovely little patches of green farmland, in a sweet little farmhouse that needs a little love, and perhaps a big red barn.  My dreams are pretty simple. 🙂

I've always liked answering questions.  In school, I actually enjoyed tests.  The ACTs and SATs were fun.  And I especially loved math, because in general, there is always just one right answer.  What a relief that was!  My love of questions may have been instilled in me as a child, as one of the games I'd play with my dad, usually on a long drive somewhere, was "What's the capital of…" and "What's the square root of…" and so on.
