Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.
Wow! I can’t believe this is our 10th MFF!
I love learning more about my fellow MilSpouse bloggers. So I created a weekly meme. Each week, I’ll post a list of questions on Thursday (so you can have your blog ready on Friday). Come back here on Friday (like today!) and enter your blog post into Mr. Linky below so others know who else participated and we can all visit other blogs. Please leave a comment too! And please feel free to use the button above!
(Please forgive me if I can’t get to visit everyone’s blogs the next few weeks. I am having a hard time accessing my own blog from the Army Internet!)
I was going to feature one question suggested by MFF participants each week, but since you all came up with such great questions last week, I’m going to have to do more than one a week! This week’s questions are:
1. What secret indulgence do you act on while your spouse is away? (from Devil Dog Darling)
Um, not getting dressed and watching pointless TV (like Toddlers and Tiaras… what a trainwreck that I can’t stay away from!). All. Day. Long.
2. If you were a spice, what would you be? (from New Girl On Post)
I would have to say mint. It’s refreshing and clean… and it goes great with chocolate!
3. Where do you go for support when your significant other is deployed? (from Texas Meets Washington)
I would have to say my Twitter friends. They are mostly MilSpouses and are more of a support network than I have in real life.
4. What is the oldest thing you own? (from A Troop’s Girl)
It would have to be the diamond necklace my grandma gave me. Not the necklace, but the diamond. It was the diamond from my great-great aunt’s engagement ring. I was originally going to wear it for my wedding, but after my dad died, I ended up wearing his favorite ring that I had made into a necklace.
5. How did you vision your future pre-military? (from Daddy’s Duty)
Not this, for sure! I never wanted to marry a military man. I wanted the typical American house with my husband working 8-5 and having weekends off. I was hoping (still am) that when we had kids, I could either work part-time or as a full-time stay-at-home mom. We’d have horses (not really possible as a military family), grow up in a small-ish town where everyone knew everyone and you graduated with the kids you went to kindergarten with.
And I sure as HECK never, ever thought in a million years that I’d ever be in the military myself. Never. People I grew up with still don’t believe it.
Now, I am imagining all the possibilities our future kids will have to see the world and learn the importance of honor and duty.
Please don’t forget to add your blog link to Mr. Linky below by clicking on it. But also if you are not participating in MilSpouse Friday Fill-In this week, please do not put your link on there… I will remove it. It is unfair to others who do participate.
