Kindness is in our power, even when fondness is not.
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!
This week’s questions are:
1. Are you a night owl or an early bird?
A night owl. Right now, I’m unemployed and I tend to go to bed around midnight and get up around eight or nine. That’s just my body’s natural rhythm. I’m not a fan of getting up early, that’s for sure.
2. What makes you jealous?
Right now, I’m jealous of the other wives on our most recent boat who still have their husbands at home. They are working looong hours and are complaining a lot, but once these long hours are done and other than about a month, they’ll get their men home until next spring. Since we were on that boat until just recently, that should be ME complaining about long hours yet still getting to see my husband! Instead, I watch my email constantly hoping to get one… just one… email from my husband.
3. Have you started Christmas/holiday shopping yet? When will you finish? (There’s only 63 days left!)
Actually, yes! I gave Huzzy his present (a Nook) just before he went on his last deployment and I have purchased two gorgeous hand-made double star quilts from Blue Bird Crafting for our mothers. I even got some gorgeous frames for them tonight. All I have to do is my brother, my father-in-law, our two nieces and both of our grandmas. Other than that, I’m done. Well, other than my friends, but they generally get yummy homemade cookies, fresh-baked bread and homemade jam.
4. What would you have a personal chef make you tonight?
Mmm… a salad like Olive Garden’s salad, a nice chicken breast–maybe stuffed–marinated in some awesome sauce, some awesome grilled/marinated asparagus and some sort of absolutely awesome potatoes. For dessert? I dunno, surprise me… but I love chocolate and raspberry anything!
5. Where was your first kiss?
Oh gosh… like peck on the mouth kiss or real kiss? My first peck-on-the-mouth kiss was when I was 14 at our Homecoming Dance. This boy had asked me to Homecoming and we started “dating.” Yeah, that meant we were together for six months and never kissed again and were totally blushing whenever we held hands. Yes, we were naive and I marvel at how innocent we were compared to kids today. Now, my first REAL kiss happened when I was nearly 17. It was a guy who I really liked and we were also friends. We were driving around and he took me to a football field where he kissed me.
