You might also notice that there is a blog name in parentheses after the question. That is because this week the questions are all taken from last week's meme. If you find a certain question particularly amusing, you can follow the link to find out more about the blogger who came up with it! Enjoy!
1. What secret indulgence do you act on while your spouse is away? (from Devil Dog Darling)
I tend to watch terrible TV that D loathes. Seriously, if he knew the amount of time I spent watching shows like Real Housewives, Army Wives and Jon and Kate Plus 8 (they were still together last time D was deployed), he would probably not be surprised, but he might throw up in his mouth a little bit.
2. If you were a spice, what would you be? (from New Girl On Post)
Garlic because I would make everything more delicious! LOL Seriously, we eat a LOT of garlic in this house, its kind of my go-to spice, so if you don't like it, you should steer clear of pretty much any dish I make (aside from desserts).
3. Where do you go for support when your significant other is deployed? (from Texas Meets Washington)
My biggest support system while D was gone was actually his friends. They kind of took me in and helped me to realize what he was going through. It was interesting to think about our situation from the military member's perspective and they helped me a lot. We were very close and I was present when a few of them met their significant others! My mom also helped me out quite a bit. Even though she doesn't really know what its like, my Mom has this way of putting everything into perspective for me. For me it was important to have people around who weren't going to let me feel sorry for myself.
4. What is the oldest thing you own? (from A Troop's Girl)
Oh geez. I have no idea. I guess my Care Bear, named Cousin Bear, from when I was a baby. I don't have it here with us though, its at my parent's house. Cousin Bear is actually an elephant. She is a Care Bear cousin, so I guess that is how she got her name, not sure though!
5. How did you vision your future pre-military? (from Daddy's Duty)
I'm going to be honest and say that a lot of how I envisioned my future turned out to actually happen. Some things in reality are vastly different from what I envisioned (like how much money D makes) but for the most part, I saw us getting married and having a family. We weren't located in a specific place in my visions, but I guess that is because I just assumed that we'd be close to Hometown, USA. I've never been a career-minded person, so I never really had big plans for myself. I guess I'm lucky that the whole "get married and have kids thing" worked out for me so quickly! Ha ha.
