Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
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!
Next week, there’ll be more questions again by other MilSpouses. This week, I’m too busy graduating from the Defense Information School to do that, so I’m making some quick questions. This week’s questions are:
1. What is the longest road trip you’ve ever taken?
That would have to be the PCS trip we took in February from Michigan to Western Washington. Of course, this was made longer since we had to go via St. Louis, Amarillo, Las Vegas, Boise and then over thanks to the snow and blizzard warnings that were all around us.
2. Do you collect anything? Tell us a bit about it.
I collect snow globes. Mostly ones from different states and places that I visit. My parents gave me a curio cabinet for my high school graduation present and it’s totally filled now!
3. What is your favorite part about being an adult?)
Hmm… I guess my favorite part is choosing to do what I want. But that also comes with being responsible for my choices, which isn’t always fun!
4. What song brings a tear to your eye?
I danced to “I Loved Her First” during my Father-Daughter dance at my wedding. My dad had died four years previously so I danced to that with the other men in my life… my brother, uncle and cousins. Also, most songs that have to do with losing someone and/or the military tend to get me. The ones that come to mind are “Arlington” and “American Soldier” both by Trace Adkins, “Eighth of November” by Big and Rich and “If You’re Reading This” by Tim McGraw.
5. Describe your first plane ride (how old you were, where you were heading, etc).
I was three or four years old and we flew to visit my grandparents in Florida. I don’t remember much about it, other than we missed our connecting flight and I remember my mom running holding my baby brother and holding my hand and trying to get me to run faster. I also remember my mom getting me to watch the planes out the window of the airport (no doubt to keep me from getting bored).
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.
