MilSpouse Friday Fill-in #32

1. Do you or your {spouse} ever wish your {spouse} was in a different branch of the military? submitted by The Turner Family
I think we are both pleased with the Air Force. He likes his job and I like that the only place he can deploy to with his job is not in harm's way. It's a win-win.

2. What duty station(s) are on your "No Way, Hell No, Not Going, Have Fun Unaccompanied" list and why? submitted by Every Branch
I touched on this one last week. I dread being sent to BFE. Europe? Sounds awesome. Japan and Korea, while not at the top of my list, would at least be something completely different. Anywhere on the East Coast is not too bad because the family/friends would be a drivable distance away. Montana/Idaho/Dakotas? Sounds like torture to me. But I'd still go.

3. If you could be one age forever, what age would you choose and why? submitted by Three Krakens
23 was a good year. My life got on track that year. I went back to school, stopped being ridiculous (for the most part), got to travel, was surrounded by really good friends, and started dating the husband. Plus, I had a hot little body back then, sigh. [edited to add: Also, my 23rd birthday was EPIC. Pictures from that night will never cease to be embarrassing.]

4. If you were a breakfast cereal, which one would you be? submitted by the C.W.
I'll go with Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It's sweet, but not saccharine, with a hint of savory and a delightful crunch. Plus, everyone in our household likes it (yes, including the cat - she stalks people while they're eating it and dives in to drink the milk from the bowl when you're done).

5. What is your morning beverage of choice and why? submitted by NH Girl Displaced
Other than the rare occasion when I just NEED orange juice in the morning, I typically stick with water. It is the perfect thirst quencher for that super parched just woke up feeling. I save my Starbucks fix for early afternoon.


  1. We have not been stationed in North Dakota, but I was born there (moved away at the age of 5, and returned at the age of 23), and lived there for 2 years before my husband got his first duty Japan. Japan is different, but I think its more torture than ND! Its too far away, it always rains (we live on Okinawa), its always humid, and its expensive to travel off the island. ND was boring, but it was easy to get away from!

  2. Great list! I enjoyed reading your previous entries as well. No-one should have to live more than 20 minutes away from a Target!

  3. Mmm. Cinnamon toast crunch sounds yummy right now! Your newest follower from Friday Fill In :)
