MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #35

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 is your must have gadget? submitted by Flying High With My Flyboy

My iPhone.  I am addicted to it.  A close second would most definitely be my laptop.

2. How does your adulthood compare to what you imagined it would be like when you were a little kid? submitted by L to the Third

Crap.  I submitted this one so I better give my answer some actual thought.  Well, I certainly didn't grow up to be a mover, a carpenter, a marine biologist or a Japanese teacher--all occupations I thought I have as an adult at some point in my childhood; I never would have guessed that I would go on to find a career focusing on the decorative arts.  Ultimately, I wanted to fall in love with someone and start a family with that person; granted, I also thought I would meet that person in college and get married shortly thereafter, but better late than never, right?  At the end of the day, I'd have to say that my adulthood is pretty close to how I imagined it would be (minus the crushing student loan payments, of course).  However, I never imagined in a million years that I would find myself married to someone in the military; it can be really rough at times, but I wouldn't trade the experience for anything else.

3. What is your favorite chocolate recipe?  submitted by Our First Deployment

Triple chunk brownies. It's a little recipe I picked up from someone named Betty Crocker.  And by recipe, I mean a box from Target.

4. How do you deal with military life when it gets to be too much or too hard? submitted by Combat Boots And Pointe Shoes

I'm pretty lucky in that I can always give my family a call when things get to be too much, and I also have a great network of friends who are ready and willing to help out when things get rough.  I've also been known to turn to retail therapy when things get really bad (nothing cheers me up quite like a trip to Target), and brownies are great, too (see #3).

5. What piece of advice would you give a new Military spouse facing their first deployment?  submitted by The Albrecht Squad

Don't be afraid to actually take people up on their offers of help.   People sincerely do want to help--they're not just saying it to be nice.  I promise.

I'm a big fan of your question this week and your response. It's honest and refreshing to see that even though the future isn't like we imagined, you still are happy. Ourselves right now should remember that in twenty years too!! Happy Friday L

Brownies from a box are the best!!! I definitely learned to swallow my pride and accept help this last deployment... good advice :)
