Friday Fill-In!

Today I'm playing "Friday Fill-in" for the second time, even though Wife of a Sailor has held 8 of them. Fin times!
What is ONE thing you’d like civilians to understand about being a military family?

The fact that they don't understand. I find it easier to deal with my civilian counterparts that understand that they have no idea what I'm talking about when I say the the PLL Flooded at Hub's FOB, than the civilians that say "yea, my PLL flooded too." Really? You can compare, but if you haven't lived it, than be willing to admit it.

What is your favorite mistake?

My husband. That sounds bad huh? But no really, He was my "all-in" moment. There were red flags, like the fact that he and the rest of the cooks were apparently competing for my affection, even though he already had a woman (or three) at that time. I knew when I started dating him, that it could end terribly, luckily, somehow we got it right. And here we are 4 years later and a little one under our belts, I am glad I gave him a chance.

What indulgence could you give up for a year?

Rated G answer? pop. I can do without it, but sometimes it's nice to treat myself to a little bit. Rated X answer? Yea. They make t-shirts for it. "sexually deprived for your freedom" `

If you could be a winged animal, what would you be?

A unicorn? Ok no really a duck. I like them. But not like my crazy art teacher in high school who was obsessed with them. I just think they're cute.

What is one question you’d like to see asked in a future MFF?

Favorite "seperation" song?

That is all folks. Have a wonderful Friday! I was just invited to a really delicious sounding dinner since after the stuff I've been slogging through this week I don't really want to be social and attend the post Dinner and a Movie that I was going to. That sounded simpler in my head. =)


  1. Seriously a duck???I like them in pictures, or paintings, of where i can't hear them - but as soon as they open those mouths of's hunting season. Make sure to wear some pink feathers so I know its you -k- Thanks

  2. Glad your "mistake" wasn't a mistake at all! ;-)

  3. LOL my husband's a mistake moment too.

  4. I think you should have stuck with a unicorn...what a clever answer!

  5. I love ducks! So I really like that answer.

  6. aww I'm glad your husband gave up the other women for you :D
