Hop on over to Wife of a Sailor and join in on the fun!
1.How do you spend your deployment money, do you save, pay off bills or enjoy the extra money while it is there to buy the things you do not normally have? (from Troop Petrie)
We do a little bit of everything. Joel and I have a goal to become debt-free, so I'm working to get some debts paid off, including my student loan. (See ya Sallie Mae). I have a few to-do's on my list that are not in our normal budget, including getting our trees trimmed (done) and getting some rooms painted professionally. And then there's some fun trips to the mall to get this somewhat skinnier body some new clothes. The extra money during deployment is definitely nice, but I'd much rather have my hubby home.
2.If you could relive one occasion or moment, what would it be? (from Currently On Land)
My wedding day. It was just amazing - from beginning to end.
3.What’s the worst job you ever had and if it was so bad why did you take it? (from Faith and Deploying)
I was a grocery store check-out girl for about 6 months in high school. It was a new store that eventually had plans to have a Starbuck's inside. I was hired on for Starbuck's, but worked up front while Starbuck's was being built. I hated it. I have so much respect for people who do this job!
4.If you could play any character on TV, who would you be? (from Many Waters)
I'd be Pam on The Office. That show is hilarious and that particular kind of dysfunction seems like too much fun.
5.If you could become the world’s expert in something, what would it be? (from Army of Two)
I'd be the world's expert landscaper. Crazy, right? I love landscaping and have a stack of landscaping books that I could seriously read over and over again. I watch all the landscaping shows on PBS and love to pop in to Lowe's and other greenhouses just to look at plants and read tags. I know I'm making myself sound totally lame here. Don't judge me.
