Friday Fill-In

YAY, it's Friday again!  I hope you have some fun weekend plans for the first full weekend in August.  To start off today I'm participating in the MilSpouse Friday Fill In.  Thanks to Wifey at Wife of a Sailor for hosting!

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

1.  What is something you wished you’d learned to do earlier in life?

 I wish I had learned how to sew, knit & crochet earlier.  I've been sewing for about 5 years now and am just getting around to learning how to crochet.  Knitting is up next.  I wasn't interested in learning when I was younger but looking back I can see times when it would have been useful to know! 

2.  What is your biggest pet peeve with the military?

I'm having a hard time answering this one.  I think it's the red type and run around that you encounter.  Seriously, not getting a straight answer can drive me nuts!  It's kinds nice knowing that if you don't get an answer you like you can call back, talk to someone else and maybe get a different, nicer answer.  But really, I don't like stalking and would rather call once and get the "RIGHT" answer.  It would be nice to call back, talk to someone else and get the SAME, "RIGHT" answer.  I can handle schedules being written in warm jello but having other info written in warm jello just annoys me.

3.  What tourist attraction near you have you never seen?

Um, Point Defiance Zoo?  Mount Rainier?  Something in Seattle (The Space Needle & Pike's Place Market have been done) like the Seattle Art Musuem, the sculpture park or a whale watch (I really, really , really want to see some Orcas.  I look for them every time I'm on the ferry but no luck yet)  

4.  What are you avoiding doing right now?

Vacuuming, doing the dishes...general household stuff.  It will get done, I'm just taking my time enjoying my morning cup of tea.

5.  Wine, beer or liquor?

I'm not a big drinker but occasionally I'll have a glass of wine or a mixed drink.  I very rarely go for beer...and The Man usually ends up finishing it.


  1. Hey, another NEer! How do you like the northwest? Hubby and I are hoping to get stationed there after shore duty.

    I think we can all agree with #2. :)

  2. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I agree with you that not getting a straight answer in the military is both standard and frustrating!

  3. I learned how to sew over the past deployment, and I'm loving it! Wish I would have learned it sooner!
