1. What time do you prefer to go to Mass?
The DL (Divine Liturgy) starts at 8:30. There is only one option. It used to be at 10 but then about 18 months ago it was moved to 8:30 which would generally not seem like an issue worth discussing BUT we live 1 hr away from church PLUS with a Papa deacon who needs to be a church early to set up… well the first few weeks were hairy waking up a 2 yr old and 18 month old at 6 am to eat so we could race out the door at 7. However after a month of not loving life on Sunday mornings, I wised up and now the girls and I eat breakfast in the hall and then get dressed there. So we leave at 6:45, Papa is there with plenty of time, the girls are not rushed, I am not stressed and I LOVE 8:30 DL. It is fantastic.

2. Would you rather be too hot or too cold?
Hmmm… After the winter that we have had I would say too hot but honestly I think I belong in SoCal because I love 70 degree days with the windows open and a slight breeze.
3. How many brothers and/or sisters do you have?
One younger brother. Uncle Kev. The girls adore him. I kinda like him too I guess : )
4. If you were faced with a boggart, what would it turn into?
The dark. I am so so so afraid of the dark.
5. Barbie: thumbs up or thumbs down?
Down. I hope to keep Barbies out of this house for as long as humanly possible. Our house is exploding with stuff/toys as it is no need to add to it.
6. If someone asked you to give them a random piece of advice, what would you say?
Because I did this today:

Now 1/2 marathon on Palm Sunday (thank goodness for those Saturday night vigil masses) - never would do it again. I registered for this crazy race back a month or so after I found out I was pregnant with M. Pascha was so INSANELY early last year it did not dawn on me to look at the calendar for the following year to see when Holy Week started. Anyhow… I need a good local-ish .5 marathon to do in the fall. Got any ideas? Pray for those people who died. Seriously puts things in perspective.
