MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

In an effort to learn more about fellow MilSpouse bloggers, Wifey from Wife of a Sailor started this weekly meme;  here are this week's questions.

1. If you were given $1,000 right now, how would you spend it? 

I would put it towards a plane ticket to South Korea; how sweet would it be if Captain Husband, Sammy and I could all spend our first Christmas together as a family?

2. If you had to choose a movie title (a real one that already exists) for your life story, what would it be? 

Um, I have no idea...how about The Historian (I cheated a little bit, because this movie is currently in development)?

3. If you were a teacher, what subject would you like to teach? 

American History, with an emphasis on material culture and what it can reveal about certain moments of time.

4. Has being a MilSpouse changed how you view holidays or how your holidays are celebrated? If so, how? If not, what hasn't changed? 

Well, I certainly don't take spending time with my loved ones for granted, although Christmas has always been up in the air ever since I finished college.  Work often made it difficult to travel, so I would usually go home for New Year's Eve instead, which also happens to be my mom's birthday.  Not much has changed since meeting CH; our first Christmas as a couple was spent meeting each other's parents; CH was in Afghanistan for our second Christmas so I celebrated the holiday with some friends in Annapolis; our third Christmas was spent with CH's parents (we went to my parents' for New Year's); this year, I'll be traveling to my in-laws' earlier this month and then I'll be taking Sammy home to my parents' for his first Christmas, because the thought of spending the holiday alone in my house is über depressing.

5. What is your favorite Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) memory?

It's a memory that's been transformed into something of a family tradition in recent years.  My family would spend Christmas day with my mom's side of the family at my maternal grandmother's house.  Every year, without fail, she would put a box of crackers and a can of spray cheese out on the coffee table and us kids would go crazy making cracker and spray-cheese sandwiches.  My grandma died seven years ago, but we still put a can out in her memory--it's just not Christmas without processed cheese.

Oooo, good movie title! And I love the spray cheese story!!

Sammie said...

Yay for processed cheese--that made me hungry :) Every aspect of the military life forces you to be thankful for what you have & for you to enjoy every moment you're given. I'm so thankful that my hubby & I are together this Christmas because I know so many families are separated and that one year it may happen to us. Hugs!

If I had a thousand to give, I'd give it to you so that you and Sammy can spend the holidays with CH.
