It's Friday

Well ladies & gents, it's that time of the week again.  It's time for the Milspouse Friday Fill-In with Wifey from Wife of  a Sailor.  Is there a better way to start the weekend?

So let's get a start on the weekend fun:

1.  What’s the nicest thing a stranger has ever done for you?

The nicest thing a stranger has done, more than once, was to help me communicate.  You see, when I lived in Asia I lived in countries where English was not the major language.  As for me, I am HORRIBLE at languages.  Especially tonal languages (I'm tone deaf).  I tried learning the language of the country I was in but more often than not I couldn't make myself understood.  More than once a stranger, who spoke some English, came to my aid.  One of my favorite memories is when I was on a 15 hour train ride and the women all around me were asking me questions.  They managed to find a middle school student with a little English and we spent several hours chatting.  Other times include getting help in getting a key made, making change and getting directions.  

2.  If you are having a hard time going to sleep, what do you do to help yourself?

When all else fails, I get up and spend some time on the computer.  This is especially helpful if I can't sleep because my mind is racing with thoughts.   

3.  Name something that makes you wish you were a kid again. 

Toys R Us.  

4.  What is something you never believed until you experienced it? 

Love at first sight.  While it wasn't exactly love at first sight with The Man, it was pretty close.  I left our first date pretty sure I had just had my last first date.  I just kind of knew.  It was the same for him:)

5.  What can’t you say “no” to? 

Getting something from Starbucks.  Harry Potter.  Buying tile at the Habitat for Humanity Store.  Getting a bargain or a deal.  Spending time with The Man.  

Don't forget to head to  Army Dogs to link up to the MilSpouse Weekly Roundup!


  1. I had practically the same answer to number 4! :)

  2. I didn't write #4 that way, but I had sort of had the same thing. And I can't turn down Harry Potter stuff either....

  3. Ooh, im a sucker for Starbucks too! :)

  4. Hi, I am Athena and I am a Starbucks addict ;0) Or as my friend likes to say, I worship at the church of St. Arbucks.
    Happy Friday!
