This week’s questions are:
1.How did you and your spouse/significant other meet? I usually tell people we met through a mutual friend because if I told people that the mutual friend was my boyfriend and my husband was his roommate, then I’d really look like the evil witch with a b that I was. (To my credit, my then boyfriend and now husband didn’t know each other before they became roommates.) Let’s just say my ex-boyfriend didn’t live there very long, and he wasn’t exactly the first in line to congratulate us when we got engaged 9 months later.
2.What is the best thing about being a MilSpouse?There are so many amazing things about being a mil spouse. But I’d have to say the best part is the community. We are all strong, independent forces to be reckoned with, and I can’t think of any other community that cheers each other on like we do. I know that I could never get through my husband’s current deployment without my mil spouse comrades, both in person and online.
3.What is the hardest thing about being a MilSpouse?Oh, I could write a book on that one! I’d have to say the loneliness. Mil spouses get married and then spend a lot of time alone. But absence makes the heart grow fonder, and I think my marriage is stronger because of our frequent separations.
4.What is your favorite dish?Sushi, sushi, and more sushi. After living in Japan for 3 years, I learned that I could easily eat sushi every meal of the day.
5.If you could change one thing in this world, what would it be?Hatred. I purposely avoid discussing controversial issues like politics on my blog, but I truly believe that hatred is the root of many evils in this world.
