Fill in Friday #8

Here are my answers for Wife of a Sailor's Fill in Friday questions :)

1.What is ONE thing you’d like civilians to understand about being a military family?
How hard it is to REALLY be away from your loved ones. It drives me insane when I see my civilian friends saying how much they miss their man when he just walked out the door to go to work and will be home later that night ... UGH! That is such a soap box for me that I would get on a rampage about lol.

2.What is your favorite mistake?
Hands down the weekend of Oct. 20th 2006. It was the first weekend Dan and I got to spend alone. My Dad and Step Mom had a wedding to go to and I couldn't get out of work for it. So Hunk had the great idea of coming over all weekend and "Playing House." Well us "playing house" let to a BFP about two months later ... And nine months later we got Little Miss :) And she is the best "mistake" that has EVER happened to me!!

3.What indulgence could you give up for a year?
Chocolate. I am not a HUGE fan of it like most people so I think that's the one thing that would be easiest thing for me to give up -- haha.

4.If you could be a winged animal, what would you be?
Flamingo :) They are my favorite animal!!!

5.What is one question you’d like to see asked in a future MFF?
What is your favorite thing to make for dinner? I would love to see what other people like to cook so that it gives me ideas for new things to try out :)

I could probably give up chocolate too. I like it and all, but it's not a necessity.

Ashley said...

UGH I understand what you mean on number one. I had somebody tell me that they understood how I felt during deployments because their husband worked 12 hours days. She forgot that he still came home at night, he got several days off during the week, and so on! UGH!

I completely agree about #1 and I almost said flamingo!

Kara said...

Ditto on your number 1!. That question probably could have been our top 10 things! God bless our 'mistakes'!

Jill said...

Amen to #1 - such an annoyance of mine. Grr.
Love your MilSpouse questions!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm looking forward to keeping up with yours.

Sarah said...

Your #1 is so infuriating, I completely agree. I love when people compare a deployment to a "business trip", lol.

Rachel said...

Love your number one! But your brave, I don't think I could go a week without chocolate. I eat it nearly every day... I'm addicted and I've come to terms with it :)

Anonymous said...

I think your "mistake" is the best :)

Veronika said...

I said Flamingo too :)

Sammie said...

I never even thought of Flamingo! Awesome answers!

While my mom never considered me a mistake, she thought I was her greatest accident. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Awesome answers! And I would love to see what everyone else is cooking up as well. I'm always looking for new recipes.

Thanks for stopping by!
