MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #28

If you were a famous movie star, what types of movies would you star in?

I think it would be a blast to star in a big, loud, epic superhero movie.

What is a vacation you would like to take if money were no object?

Ever since reading Troubling a Star by Madeleine L’Engle when I was a child, I have wanted to see Antarctica. Since money is no object in this dream vacation, my trip to the planet’s deep freeze would be followed by a sojourn to some more temperate clime to thaw out.

Did you have pets growing up?

I sure did. My family had a dog that had been with them since the early days of their marriage, so my childhood is filled with memories of a good-natured, if not overly smart, mutt. After he went on to his great canine reward, my family adopted a cat, one we selected from the shelter because he was the only one who didn’t cringe in fear from my then-three-year-old brother. A few years later, my brother and I were desperate for a kitten. When my parents finally relented, off to the shelter we went. We came home with a darling black-and-white kitten whom the shelter thought to be nine weeks old. According to the vet, though, she was about four months old and just that tiny. She never got very big, but her personality was more than wacky enough to make up for it.

My husband never had pets growing up, having been born into a family with a severely allergic father and sister. The cats and I are very glad that he doesn’t share those allergies.

What do you do for exercise?

Not nearly enough, probably. I will confess my dorkiness and say that I do enjoy Wii Fit Plus. It may not count as serious exercise, but it gets my sedentary behind off the couch and moving and stretching. The little time piggy bank in the game does a happy little dance when I hit thirty minutes of actual activity, and I shudder to think what it says about me that I’m motivated by such things. I even sent away for a freebie tote bag from Nintendo.

I will be the most stylin’ gal at the commissary with this reusable bag, let me tell you.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received as a MilSpouse?

“Semper Gumbi.” Live it. Do it. (I frequently fail at this, but it’s still good advice.) 😉

  1. Yeah, I frequently fail at that motto as well. Sometimes its just plain easier to get a rut ain’t it, lol, especially in this lifestyle.

    I have several friends that have the WII Fit and they love it. I’m kinda intrigued by it all. I’m doing P90x right now; but I’m telling you I might like to have a little piggy come out and do a dance, LOL

    New follower and so glad to have found another Military Wife!

    • I don’t think Wii Fit is nearly as hardcore as P90x, from what I’ve heard about that program. It is entertaining, though, which isn’t a bad thing.

      Thanks for dropping by!
