Here are my answers for Wife of a Sailor's Fill in Friday questions :)
1.Do you set goals for yourself during deployment? What are some of them?
Oh of course! It's one of the things that helps me get though them! Some of my past ones were lose weight (I think we all try to do that while they are gone, b.c lord knows they are over there getting in shape ;), save money, fix up the yard, de-clutter the house...
2.What would you say to someone dating a military guy or gal?
At times it really sucks, but it's so worth it. It's worth being away from them at months at a time, b.c when they come home it's honestly like falling in love all over again. It makes you appreciate this country so much more, I remember the first time I hear the nation anthem during our first deployment and it made me cry knowing that Hunk was out there fighting for our country. It makes your relationship so much stronger, knowing that you can get though anything (literally) and sticking with them makes them appreciate you so much more. Find a good support group, get to know fellow spouses in your boy/girlfriends unit, they will help you out so so much when your loved one is gone.
3.If you have children, how do you prepare them to move to a new place?
Thankfully we have only had to move once, and Little Miss was young enough that it really didn't phase her at all. And with the job my husband has here we will actually be here until he retires (unless he requests to leave, which would mean cross training into another job -- and the only way that will happen is if he has the chance to fly on gunships)
4.Name one hobby that gets you through alone time.
Well having two kiddos defiantly keeps me busy enough! But I try to get involved in spouse groups, going visit family/friends, doing things around the house that I have wanted to do and didn't have the time, planning a getaway trip for the hubby and I for when he returns.
5.What’s the one food you don’t ever get tired of?
OMGsh grilled chicken, steak and potatoes, Korean short ribs, BLTs ... yea I love food lol
