MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

It's been a really long time since I joined Wife of a Sailor and the other MilSpouse bloggers in the Friday Fill-In... Feels nice to be back!

1.Have you (spouse) ever considered joining the military and what do you think of dual military couples? submitted by Project Army Wife
Never.  Ever.  They wouldn't want me.  I remember being called by recruiters in high school and trying so hard to convince them that I wouldn't be a good fit.  I don't like sweating, getting dirty, wearing ugly clothes, being forced to wake up early, camping, hiking....  I can't read a map.  I don't do well when people yell at me... The list goes on.  I am thankful for those who can do it, but it's not for me.

I give major credit to couples who are in together.  I feel like it's a lot of sacrifice to be the spouse of a military member, but I can't even think of how it would be if Joel and I were both in the military.  So kudos to those who do it!!!

2.What is your idea of a perfect Sunday afternoon? submitted by A Few of My Favorite Things
Lunch after church, followed by a mandatory family nap, a family walk through the neighborhood and BBQ for dinner - sounds perfect to me!

3.What do you usually do for the 4th of July holiday? submitted by Anchor’s Away
It depends on where we are for the 4th.  Usually we end up going to my in-laws - we hang out and wait until dark.  Then Joel goes out and year after year, scares me to death... he becomes a different person around fire and fireworks.

4.If they could make an Olympic event JUST for you that you know you’d medal in, what would it be? submitted by Pants are Confusing
Shopping.  And I would get a gold medal every time.

5.What have you been doing to get yourself bathing suit ready for the summer? submitted by Not Just an Army Wife
Ugh.  I'm not sure I'll actually be in a bathing suit this year, but I've been doing lots of squats and sit-ups and trying to eat more fruits and vegetables.

Ha!! You would win a gold medal in the shopping event! And...just for the record, I think that you will be joining me at the pool at least once this summer. I'm giving you fair warning, so be prepared. Remember, top 5%! :)

I am right there with ya in not liking to be told to wake up early and being yelled at. The first is kind of funny because I wake up fairly early on my own. But, the moment I need to wake up that early, I could sleep in for hours.

Oh your Sunday afternoon does sound perfect! And well if you and I were competing in shopping- I don't even know if I would medal- unless it was grocery shopping with coupons :)
