MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #34



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. What are some of your ideas for staying connected with family...you know, those people we moved thousands of miles away from? submitted by Live it. Love it (or not). Write About It.

Thanks to things like blogging and Skype, I manage to stay pretty connected with my family; sorry--not a very helpful answer.

2. What's the most romantic gift you have GIVEN? submitted by Painting My Canvas

I don't do romance very well...most of my gifts are of the humorous variety (think along the lines of novelty underwear); however, I did buy Captain Husband an antique pocket watch and had it engraved with "Welcome Home Sloth Bear" (it's a long story) for when he returned from Afghanistan.

3. Would you encourage your child, if they came to you and wanted to join the military? submitted by Perfectly Imperfect

To be honest, I wouldn't encourage my child but I wouldn't discourage him, either.  I would listen to his reasons and and then we would discuss the ramifications of his choice as a family.

4. What is your least favorite bill to pay and why? submitted by A Little of This, A Little of That

My student loan bills...ugh.  My stomach ties in knots just thinking about how much I owe and how long I'm going to be paying for my higher education.

5. What is the proudest moment you've had as a military spouse? submitted by Our Okinawa Life

I wasn't technically a milspouse when this happened (I was a milgirlfriend) but one of my proudest moments was when Captain Husband told me that he was volunteering for a year-long mission in Afghanistan; initially I was pretty conflicted about the whole thing but once I had time to process everything, I was just so incredibly proud and in awe of this man and his convictions.  (And I still am!)
