MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

Thanks again to Wife of a Sailor for the questions!  I have to say, that these were really hard for me to answer.

1.Besides the horizontal mambo, what do you miss most when your spouse is deployed?

HA!  Very funny.
I really miss the companionship.  Joel's my best friend, so he's the first one I go to when I'm happy, sad, frustrated, in need of a vent session and a hug.  I miss him being here to offer an ear to me.  Right before bed is kind of my time to decompress - talk about the day, get things off my chest.  So, I've been finding myself calling my mom or sister in the evening and just letting them know what I did that day.

2.What do you miss least?
Honestly, I don't miss his little messes.  Joel leaves his things scattered throughout the house.  If I ask him to pick them up, I feel like I'm nagging.  So I just kinda suck it up and deal with the little piles.  Right now, the only messes are mine!

3.You only get three crayons to finish your picture… which three do you choose and why?
Gosh, I wish I knew what we were coloring!  I'd say red, brown and green.  I've been doing a lot of coloring lately, thanks to little Miss Grace, and I find I reach for those colors most often.

4.If you could have your own fragrance, what would it be called?
Beloved.  It's from Song of Solomon 2:16 - "My beloved is mine, and I am his."  If I were to get a tattoo, it would be beloved in Hebrew.

5.If the shoes make the man (or woman), what do your shoes say about you right now?
That I'm fairly practical, always in a hurry, but still need to be cute.  Thus my flip flops with sparkles or a turquoise stone and lots and lots of ballet flats.  Rarely do I wear shoes with ties, because who has time to bend down to tie your shoes when you have kids to get ready and out the door?

I love your statement about having time to tie your shoes when you have kids to get ready! So true! My sneakers stay tied and I just slip them on. :)

I love that we had the same answer to number one.

Hey, thanks for the comments! So true about picking up after our husbands!

Also, I'm the same way with my shoes. I own more "slip on" type than ones that require tying.

I have to admit I leave piles also! But the cool thing is I also keep things forever. Well that's cool to me, bothersome to Jennifer. I'm sure she understands what you go through...HA HA

Your Tattoo would read:אהובה
(nope not smart just googled it cause I was curious)

And your not alone in the Hebrew tattoo arena:

CSPURGEON - So you if you're a pile guy and you keep things forever, does that mean your piles stay around forever? Poor Jennifer!

The tatoo thing is still up in the air. I planned to get one last summer, but then I got pregnant, and that kind of changed plans. It's something for Joel and I to discuss when he gets back... I'm trying to get him to get one, too.

Thanks for the website!
