MilSpouse Friday Fill-in #47

Have you (spouse) ever considered joining the military and what do you think of dual military couples? submitted by Project Army Wife

I have the utmost respect for dual couples - in fact my brother and sister-in-law are a recently retired dual couple, they met in ROTC and amazingly managed to never get stationed apart in 20 years which is quite the feat. I've seen quite closely how difficult it can be just to be a dual serving couple let alone once you bring kids into the mix, it becomes insanely hard. I did NJROTC in high school and had some pressure to apply to the Academy but that was really not the direction I wanted to go. In fact I'd always sworn I'd NEVER even date anyone in the military...obviously that worked out well for me. Ha! I'm quite content to let the hubs serve.

What is your idea of a perfect Sunday afternoon? submitted by A Few of My Favorite Things

Napping on the couch would definitely be involved. I can't seem to nap any other time, I really think Sunday afternoons are made for stretching out on the couch while watching an old movie...and drifting off. 

What do you usually do for the 4th of July holiday? submitted by Anchor’s Away

Usually it involves some sort of explosives/pyrotechnics. I really REALLY like making things go boom. Probably a little more than is healthy. Alas this year it's SO dry here, there are none to be had wah wah wah. So we'll just do the BBQ thing with cold beer and chilled wine. 

If they could make an Olympic event JUST for you that you know you’d medal in, what would it be? submitted by Pants are Confusing

This is *my* question! I know how cool is that?! Even better? I never imagined it'd get picked so I never even thought of what my answer would be. Why yes, I *am* blond! :-) While I think I'd do well in competitive tea brewing, I really think my medal would come in bargain shopping. I'm not a couponer but if there is a bargain to be had, I *will* ferret it out. Either that or rummy. I play for blood hehehe 

What have you been doing to get yourself bathing suit ready for the summer? submitted byNot Just an Army Wife

This is actually a great one for me. While I've always been fairly active, I've really kicked it into high gear. Every morning I walk for about 2 miles and I've recently started running - I'm doing the couch to 5k. Why I decided to start running at the end of JUNE in the middle of TEXAS where it is roughly one BILLION degrees at 7am is beyond me but hey. I'm blond remember. I'm feeling pretty good, sore, but good sore. I don't have a specific goal in mind as far as weight loss goes, I'd just like to be in shape (that's not round). 


  1. You had an awesome question too! I would pay big bucks for tickets to competitive tea brewing!
