MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

I really enjoy learning about other military spouse so I'm so glad I found MilSpouse Friday Fill-In.  It' a great way for us military spouse bloggers to connect--and for me to talk about myself.  :)

1. What secret indulgence do you act on while your spouse is away? (from Devil Dog Darling) 
While Michael was gone for BMT and Tech School, the one thing I indulged in was my hair.  I spent more than I ever have to get it cut and colored, but it felt good to be pampered.  I'm sure every time he leaves it will be something different.

2.If you were a spice, what would you be? (from New Girl On Post) 
My first instinct was to say something like ginger or sugar...something girly and sweet.  But I'm pretty sure if I was a spice, I would be nothing of the sort.  In all honesty, I'd probably be chili powder.  It's hot and spicy and sure to deliver a kick or two.

3. Where do you go for support when your significant other is deployed? (from Texas Meets Washington)
Michael hasn't deployed yet, but I already know I have great fellow military spouses to lean on when it happens.  They are the only ones who will know exactly how I'll be feeling.  But my family and other friends will be a close second.  It's good to surround yourself with people you love and trust when your rock isn't there to lean on.

4. What is the oldest thing you own? (from A Troop’s Girl) 
The oldest thing I own would be jewelery.  My paternal grandmother gave me a few different pieces although I don't know the exact age of them.  I wear her wedding ring as my own, one of my most treasured possessions.

5. How did you vision your future pre-military? (from Daddy’s Duty)
Wow, that's a hard one.  A lot of what I wanted has happened according to how I envisioned it.  I wanted a husband, a child, and a college degree--all things I have. I wanted to use my Sociology degree in some capacity though I never really narrowed it down to a specific career.  But now...I have no clue what my future will be like.  And that is surprisingly refreshing.  I think it's hard to really plan your future, even envision it really, because little things can mean big changes.  Being a military family may make it hard for me to have an actual career in my field, but it opened different doors for me.  Writing is a lot easier to accomplish when I'm not working a 9-5 job, and maybe now I can accomplish my dream of publishing a novel.
