For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
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. How many pets do you have? And what type? submitted by Life and Times of a Displaced Jersey Girl
Well, we only have two dogs because we had to put down our third last month. We have Lulu, who is an almost five-year-old blue fawn Greyhound, and Skah, who is a 3 year old deaf Great Pyrenees. They are hilarious and I love them so much. Even though Skah tends to be pretty high-maintenance medically.
2. What are your favorite projects to do while hubby is away? submitted by my-inspired-nest
Pretty much all I have time for is cleaning up our house and either unpacking, or packing. LOL, this is our fourth deployment coming up and it’s still one of those two. Luckily, this should be the last time for a LONG time that I’ll be unpacking.
3. What are the must-haves in your deployment care packages? submitted by Christine’s Little Blog
The first one is energy drinks. I also like to put cake-in-a-jar. But we don’t generally get deployment care packages that we can send so it’s more for the halfway box. You can check out the contents of my last one here.
4. If you could star in any TV show, which would it be? submitted by Just a Girl
I’d want to be the star of Secret Millionaire. Because, well, I’d be a millionaire and enough of one to be able to share my wealth with others! That is a double bonus. I love helping people.
5. What was the biggest hurdle that you faced during your/your significant other’s first deployment? submitted by The Pavlik Perspective
I think my biggest hurdle was living in Michigan while he had been living in Washington (10 months by the time I left) so we already had so few moments together. And then I wasn’t around anyone who “understood” what it was like to have a spouse deployed. I was also stressing about selling our house and finally moving to Washington. That was tough. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
