Mil Spouse Friday Fill In #20

Ok so it's been awhile since I have participated in the Milspouse Friday Fill-In and it's about time to get back. It's a wonderful idea and if you would like to visit the wonderful Mil-Spouse that has started it please go visit her blog , if I haven't thanked Wife of Sailor I am doing it now!

1. A different twist on last week’s question. This week, the first question is: what’s the nicest thing a MILSPOUSE has ever done for you? (brought to you from navy_smurfette)

I can't really narrow it down to any one thing because I have been around a while and have had some wonderful friends that have done some wonderful things for me. Probably the best would have to involve child care in a pinch when my son was young and I worked. It's always nice when you are in a bind to have someone that is willing to get your child to school or pick them up and watch them when you have to work late or take them to practice. Those are the nicest things that I can think of. Nothing has ever been as important to me as caring for my son so anyone that has reached out to help me has been a god send.

2. How often do you drive faster than the speed limit?

Living in the states I never drive over the speed limit. The last thing my husband needs is to see my name on the blotter. Yes ladies, if your name appears on the blotter it can hurt your hubs. At the very least it can lead to a nice ass chewing for them so try to stay off it. I did speed on occasion in West Africa but I don't know if that counts because can your really speed if there aren't any posted speed limits?

3. Did you have a nickname in school? If so, what was it?

If I did I never knew it. I was super tall so my cousin used to call me the Jolly Green Giant of Kensington but no one else ever did.

4. If your life was a book, what would the title be and how would it end?

What a great questioning. Let's see....maybe..From Trials to Triumph? I didn't always have an easy life, but really how many people do? I firmly believe it isn't how you start it's how you finish. My life is amazing now, I am loved by my husband and son and the feeling is mutual let me tell you. I hope it would end with me sitting on a porch swing after a long day of playing with my grandchildren, possibly great grandchildren watching my husband walking them to the car when my son comes to pick them up and just drifting off to sleep with a huge smile on my face with a heart full of love.

5. Look back (in your planner if you have one) to September 14th… what did you do that day?

LOL I have no planner, I have a calendar on my cell phone and I am pretty sure I probably was at the gym, maybe food shopping..not really sure since my cell phone is upstairs and it's really early Sat morning and I don't want to go wake the
