So, without further ado, I bring you this week's edition of Wife of a Sailor's fabulous meme, the MilSpouse Friday Fill-In!
1. What is something you wish you'd learned to do earlier in life?
I wish that I had learned to be more patient. I also wish that I had learned to be a better listener. Both of these are things that I have recently learned to do and I'm not good at either of them. I have to work at it really hard everyday. I know that everyone has times when they don't listen or lose their patience, but for me, that is the norm unless I make a point to actively try to do one of those things. Looking back, I can't believe I still have friends based on how self-centered and impatient I was!
2. What is your biggest pet peeve with the military?
Oh, where to start? I guess it is the way everything seems to always be ass-backwards. Seriously, that seems to be the norm. I just can't stand the fact that my hubby telling me something means that it will never happen. Despite knowing that I still get disappointed when it doesn't happen or plans change.
3. What tourist attraction near you have you never seen?
Well, I'm from Chicago originally and I've never been to the "bean" in Millennium Park for the purpose of taking my picture in the reflection. I've walked past it, but never stopped. I have to admit though, it hasn't always been there, so that might seem like an easy choice. As far as tourist attractions where we are...there aren't any, so yeah.
4. What are you avoiding doing right now?
Making dinner. I have an excuse though. My friend is coming into town tonight and she won't be here until about 7, so I don't want to make dinner now and then have to wait around or something. I'm just waiting to make it so that its hot when she gets here.
5. Wine, beer, or liquor?
Yes, please! Seriously though, don't mess with my vodka. I'll take it with tonic and lime thankyouverymuch.
