We're back with MilSpouse fill-ins, courtesy of Wife of a Sailor. So, glad she has power back and has finally warmed-up!
1.If you were given $1,000 right now, how would you spend it?
I'd use it to pay off debt. I really, really want to get rid of my student loan and pay off our other debts!
2.If you had to choose a movie title (a real one that already exists) for your life story, what would it be?
"Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown"... It was a movie from 1988 and is really "Women" but I cheated and changed it. I've never seen it, but some days (like today), the title seems appropriate.
3.If you were a teacher, what subject would you like to teach?
English. I had a great English teacher my Junior year of high school who really opened my eyes to how fun grammar can be and it because of her that I did so well writing papers in college. I'm kind of a geek and actually have a grammar book next to my bed to read at night.
4.Has being a MilSpouse changed how you view holidays or how your holidays are celebrated? If so, how? If not, what hasn’t changed?
Most definitely. I treasure the times our family can be together and I think Joel and I really appreciate the holidays we are able to spend together.
5.What is your favorite Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) memory?
One year, my family traveled home to Illinois from North Carolina right after an ice storm. Thankfully the road were pretty clear, but I remember how gorgeous the mountains and trees were - all covered in the most beautiful, glistening ice. It made a long ride home really enjoyable.
