Let’s do this!!


The rules are simple. I ask Dana some random questions. She replies and then I give my answers. Each winning answer is worth one point and I get to decide whose answer is better.

It’s my blog.

Here we go!

1. Do you have a re-occuring nightmare?

Dana – I used to have a recurring nightmare that I fell down a flight of stairs. This is probably fitting as I am a huge klutz. I can trip over nothing at all, let alone fall down stairs. Fortunately, I live in a one story house now! Whew!

Charity – Oh, girl…I hear ya! I fall going UP the stairs.

My nightmare is always that I can’t do something. Like, I am trying to make a call and I just can’t do it!!! Or, I’m trying to put something away, and I just can’t get the cabinet open. Things like that. It’s horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!

2. Have you ever had anyone that you met on the internet fly to visit you?

Dana – Well, I guess you could say my agent and I “met” online when he turned me down for representation a few times. Eventually we met at a conference and we’ve seen each other in person many times after that. Hubs and I drove up to Oregon last summer for a strategy session with him. (He finally signed me, the lucky ducky! Ha!)

Charity – Oh man!! Nice 🙂 When I was in my early twenties, the internet was new and all the rage. I met a few guys from other countries and…three of them flew here to hang out!! Canada, Ireland and Israel!! I stayed great friends with two of them. One actually moved here and is a great friend of the family. Totally bizarre, I know…

— I am taking it!!!

3. Favorite Vacation Spot?

Dana – My fave vacation spot is probably Yosemite. It truly is a jewel of our state. Incredible scenery and wildlife. You can watch the sturdier people climbing Half Dome and such. It is a strong visual reminder of just how mighty is our God, to make such a breathtaking place.

Charity – Oh!! I have always wanted to go there!!!!!!!!!!!! I live on the East Coast, so…it’s a little trickier.

— Dana definitely gets that one!
