MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

Since it's Friday again it's time to for the MilSpouse Friday Fill In with Wifey from Wife of a Sailor.  Make sure you go say hi!

1.  A different twist on last week’s question. This week, the first question is: what’s the nicest thing a MILSPOUSE has ever done for you? 

 The nicest thing a Milspouse has done for me...that would be when I came out to visit DH before we were married.  He had duty and I was hanging out at the Navy Lodge where I was staying.  Several wives met for coffee and then one let me hang with her for the day.  I went with her to drop off her daughter at a friends house and then we went out to lunch.  It was wonderful to not spend the entire day at the hotel by myself.  It was also wonderful to know someone when I moved out there!  She has been so helpful and I really appreciate her and the ways she's helped.

2.How often do you drive faster than the speed limit?

I hate to admit it, but pretty often  I usually only go 5 over.  I do watch for cops since they seem to be everywhere here.  I figure 5 over isn't that bad as long as I"m going with traffic. 

3.  Did you have a nickname in school? If so, what was it?
Sadly I didn't have a nickname in school.  My real name doesn't lend itself to nicknames very well.  It used to make me sad but I've gotten over it.

4.  If your life was a book, what would the title be and how would it end?

 Oh, this is tough one!  I'm going to take the easy way out and say it would be called Many Waters.  I think it would be a story of love.  One where we work through life, the good and the bad, together.  At the end we'll have been married for many years and have kids and grand kids.  I'll be the first to go and be waiting for my love to join me!

5.  Look back (in your planner if you have one) to September 14th… what did you do that day?

I looked back in my calendar and didn't have any written down for Tuesday, September 14.  I have no idea what I did that day.  Probably played with the puppy, did some errands or cleaned the house.  Nothing too exciting!

Don't forget to head over to Devil Dog Darling for the Milspouse Round Up!

  1. Oh, I love your book title! I got stumped on that question. And your story about the milspouse hanging out with you for the day is really sweet :)

  2. Ah, for the nickname you need to have been raised in the South. We take the first syllable or letter and add "dawg" to it, and there ya go, Shann-dawg!

  3. Only 5 over? That's pretty good! I speed pretty much as often as I can when I'm not in traffic. I get impatient easily : )


I love to hear your thoughts, so please share! If you know us in real life, please refrain from using our names to help us keep some semblance of privacy.

Also, I ignore comments that only ask for a follow back. The best way to get me to YOUR blog is to leave comment showing that you've read SOMETHING on my blog. Thanks!
