It's Week #2 of Wife of a Sailor's MilSpouse Friday Fill-In! If you're a mil spouse (or significant other), go check out her new meme and get to know some of the other awesome mil spouses out there! She posts questions every Thursday. All you have to do is answer them in a blog post on Friday and link up on her blog. Hope to see you all on the list!
This week’s questions are:
1. Tell us about your dream job… one that you could do regardless of pay.
If money were no object, I'd definitely be a writer. I've been writing poems and short stories since I was old enough to hold a pencil. I'd love to write novels and children's books.
2. What is your most prized material possession (kids and pets don’t count!)?
My photo boxes. I have pictures dating back from my elementary school years. Every now and then I'll sit down and go through those boxes so I can relive times like meeting my husband and having my children.
3. What has been your favorite duty station and why?
Hands down Japan. When my husband got orders to PCS to Japan, I freaked out. I had never been out of the country, and I had no idea how I would manage living so far from family and friends. But it was the most amazing experience of my life. It gave me the opportunity to learn about a different culture and travel to places I never would have dreamed of visiting, like Thailand and Korea. And of course Japan holds a special place in my heart because my daughter was born there.
4. What is your least favorite household chore?
Do I have to choose just one? Ok, least favorite...cleaning in the hidden nooks and crannies. I don't mind general vacuuming and mopping and dusting. But it's getting all the dirt and dust under the couches, under the beds, in the corners of the kitchen that kills me.
5. If you could give one piece of advice to a teenager today (not specifically a MilTeen), what would it be?
Don't squander your youth. I took so many things for granted when I was a teenager. I wasted time wishing I was older, and now that I am older, I wish I had taken advantage of certain opportunites and enjoyed being young.
