MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #20

If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem.  Everything else is inconvenience.

First off… Check out the MilSpouse Secret Santa exchange! It will close on Saturday. I hope you will all join in!

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In(please feel free to use this!)

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. A different twist on last week’s question. This week, the first question is: what’s the nicest thing a MILSPOUSE has ever done for you? (brought to you from navy_smurfette)
I have had so many lately. I’ve had MilSpouses I’ve never met help me out when new to Washington. I’ve had them send me sweet cards when I need it. And I’ve had them say encouraging things at just the right time. I have found that MilSpouses are some of the most caring and thoughtful people on earth.

2. How often do you drive faster than the speed limit?
Rarely since moving to Washington. The cops here are crazy about pulling people over just going a mile or two over. In Michigan? I always went about 5mph over.

3. Did you have a nickname in school? If so, what was it?
The only nickname I was given was when I was on the Equestrian Team. It was a high school team, but in 7th grade, the allowed me to be a “groom” to one of the high schoolers so I could get used to what would happen in high school when I competed. The girl who I helped had the same first name as I do and her dad called her “Bear.”  So he started calling me “Little Bear.”

4. If your life was a book, what would the title be and how would it end?
Well, I haven’t lived my entire life, so I don’t know. Right now, I would entitle it “What a Beautiful Day.” As for the end, I’d like to go with the cliche “and they lived happily ever after,” but I’m going to go with, “And so it was.”

5. Look back (in your planner if you have one) to September 14th… what did you do that day?
Well, I was at the Defense Information School and it looks like I started out the day around 0530 and then had a Jet Noise Scenario discussion (we were in “real life” situations and had to respond accordingly… this one was a community relations problem with “our” base having too much jet noise) beginning at 0755, then we had a panel discussion with public affairs officers from all branches, then lunch at 1130, then a lecture on communications planning, then I had to give a Commander’s Brief. The school day would have ended around 1600 and I probably headed to dinner at the DFAC around 1730 and then did homework the rest of the night. I also would have talked to Huzzy before going to bed.

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.

  1. i’m glad that you have had such a great experience with MilSpouses out there 🙂 maybe i’m jaded after doing this for 12 years lol but that would have been a hard one for me if something wonderful hadn’t just happened to me a few nights prior 🙂
    also, good to know about the cops in WA since we will be heading up there in less than 9 weeks *eek*

  3. Not sure if this is where I submit a question for next week but I’m jumping ship and posting it here anyway!

    What is one thing that you used to love to do that you’ve given up?

  4. The cops here are crazy. I still go about 5 over IF there are other people. They might pull us all over but sometimes I’ll take that chance!

  5. wanted to submit a question for the future, so i hope this is the right spot! What was the best day of your life: When you got married, When spouse came home from deployment, or when you had a child?
