Friday Fill-In #11

Yes, it's Friday...again! Already! And, with the beginning of this holiday weekend comes the next edition of Wife of a Sailor's get-to-know-you style survey. If you're a milspouse, head on over and enjoy the fun!

1.What is a weird/funny superstition that you have? (from A{muse}ing Mommy on a Pink Park Bench)

I don't know of anything anymore. I'm sure I had more when I was younger. Probably the oddest little thing I have now is on escalators I always think something is going to get caught and drag me down so I kind of jump on and off...it's best to skip the part where the steps move out of sight.

2.What are your hopes and dreams for the years AFTER the military? After all, we aren’t in it forever! (from Stetsons, Spurs and Stilettos)

Ultimately we'd like to travel a little as camp hosts. If he gets out at 20 years that'll be after he retires again from some other career. But if he stays in longer we'll likely move right from our military lives to one that focuses on us as a couple and our goals with hiking, seeing the country, enjoying nature, and visiting our kids where ever they may be!

3.Since [this] month is National Apple Month (no really!), I’d probably ask: What is your yummiest apple recipe? (from NH Girl Displaced)

I love homemade applesauce. Peel em', slice em' up, cook em' down.

4.How long have you gone as a military spouse without talking to your husband/wife during service? (from A Navy Princess and Her Little Sailors)

I'm not sure. I think probably close to 2 or 3 months. That's how long his patrols are and there aren't always mail drops or even email access, but it's been a while since we've been on sea duty, so I don't remember for certain.

5.I occasionally watch When I was 17… on MTV. So, what was something that was significant about your 17th year of life? (from Ashley Amazing)

Well, that was my senior year of high school. I was dating this great guy and all was going well. He decided to join the Navy, broke up with me, made me cry and went to the prom with his ex-girlfriend. (Thankfully, he came to his senses a few years later and married me!)

Now, go check out other great answers from fellow military spouses! See you next week!
