MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #41

What is one of the things you always do special when your husband returns from a deployment?  submitted by Keep Calm and Soldier On

Sampson has not yet officially returned from a deployment, so I guess that means we’re still squarely in the “building family traditions” stage.

What do you do to help your spouse and/or yourself re-adjust after a deployment or long separation?  submitted by Diapers, Dogs and Deployments

One of the things that helps me is to reestablish our inside jokes. Laughter’s a huge part of our marriage, and it’s all the better when only we know precisely what we’re chortling about.

Are you a crazy coupon clipper (I’m becoming one, so share your secrets with me)?  submitted by Married My Airman

Not even a little bit. Last time I was at the commissary, some (very sweet) lady actually chased me down the aisle because she saw me grab some string cheese, but not the coupon that was hanging on the shelf next to it. When I read about people saving all this money with coupons, I am impressed, but my eyes glaze over when I think about everything involved in clipping, organizing, planning, strategizing, etc. to make the most of those deals. Most coupons that come in the mail get pitched directly into the recycling.

What’s your most treasured memory of you and your spouse (not counting your wedding – that’s a given)? submitted by Scrubs, ACUs and One Crazy Ride

Rushing RiverIt’s not a singular event, really, but some of my best memories are of us enjoying the beauty of waterside parks together. Even before we started officially dating (admittedly, I had a mad crush on that handsome high school senior already), parks like Great Falls and Green Spring Gardens were already special to us. There’s nothing like standing by the water, watching it flow, and taking in breath after peaceful breath of fresh air with the one you love.

If you could live anywhere overseas, what would you pick and why? submitted by Little Moments Like This

Tough one. I haven’t traveled widely enough to be able to say for certain which culture I would like to experience with the depth of a resident. From what I’ve heard, Italy would be fabulous. It’s even remotely possible that Sampson could get a flying job there one of these years… not anytime soon, I don’t think.

Are you a military spouse/fiancée/fiancé/girlfriend/boyfriend? Hie thee to ENS Wifey’s blog (though I don’t get to call her “ENS” much longer), snag the questions, and add yourself to the Mr. Linky for this week’s MilSpouse Friday Fill-In!

  1. You could mail me your coupons! Just kidding. It cracks me up that someone actually chased you down! haha As much as I love coupons, I wouldn’t do that.

    • I was pretty amused, myself. I mean, it was very nice of her, but I have to giggle a little bit as I wonder what it was that made it her solemn mission to ensure a total stranger didn’t miss out on saving fifty cents on a package of cheese snacks.

  2. I love the lady chasing you down! Italy would be amazing. I have a friend moving there in a few months and I think I may just have to go visit!

  3. Italy is one of our choices this time around and I’m kind of excited about it. lol. We’ll see though, you know the Navy I won’t believe it until we get off the

    • That would be exciting. I’m with you, though — I don’t believe anything the Navy says until I see the results in front of me. Good luck with the orders!
