MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #46

Are you a different person than you were five years ago? submitted by Sisterly Thoughts

In 2006, I was embarking on my first summer since I was five years old that didn’t have a new school year waiting for me at the end of it. Sampson and I were engaged and planning our wedding, though he was up to his eyeballs in All Things Flight School at the time. I spent a lot of time poring over a Naval Aviation forum in an effort to predict what our lives would be like.

A lot has happened in the past half-decade, but I would say it’s been happening to the same person. I hope I am wiser, but I don’t think I’m a brand new individual.

If you could go on Amazing Race, who would you take with you as your partner and why? submitted by Thoughts from a Poekitten

I’ve never seen a single episode, I must admit. If teamwork is necessary, though, I pick Sampson. We work extremely well together.

Does Facebook or Twitter actually bring more stress or good in to your life? submitted by Just an Arizona Girl

The positives continue to outweigh the negatives, especially where Twitter is concerned. I love my Twitter buddies! As Facebook has morphed from a collegiate hangout to a place for everyone from my grandma to my tween nieces to the rabbi who officiated at our wedding, the way I use it has changed. I keep my virtual mouth shut more often than not. With so many people from so may different parts of my life reading, it can be tricky to figure out which “hat” I ought to be wearing.

Also, my grandma thinks that anything that shows up in her news feed is directed specifically at her. This assumption has led to some amusingly awkward moments with folks who have their privacy settings such that friends of friends can comment on their status updates. I think several of us in the family have had to explain to our friends the identity of that mysterious white-haired lady who just left them a comment.

June is National Soul Food Month- what’s your soul food? submitted by NH Girl Displaced

Macaroni and goat cheese, preferably with a smoked Gouda. Devilishly decadent!

If you could live in any other era than the current, which one would it be & why? submitted by Sugar in My Grits

I’m fairly comfortable with our current temporal situation, but I like to think I’d’ve kicked butt with the WAVES or WASPs in the 1940s.

Are you a military spouse/fiancée/fiancé/girlfriend/boyfriend? Hie thee to LTJG Wifey’s blog (and wish her a happy birthday! birthmonth! It’s still her birthmonth, even if the day is past), snag the questions, and add yourself to the Mr. Linky for this week’s MilSpouse Friday Fill-In!

    • LOL! You caught me — I used last week’s post as a template without checking thoroughly enough. Uh, I meant… happy birthmonth! Yeah, that’s it… 😉

    • (And yes, I know that last week wasn’t your birthday, either… man, I have to proofread this stuff more carefully. Still, you’re awesome enough to rate a whole month full of birthday wishes.)

    • You totally should! Our local Military Aviation Museum throws a 1940s-themed hangar dance for Valentine’s Day every year, so Sampson and I have had a couple opportunities to dress in our best period attire (I wore a vintage suit that had belonged to my grandma and he wore his uniform) and dance amongst the warbirds. It is so much fun to see everyone dressed up.

      Hope your weekend is going well!
