What is your must have gadget? submitted by Flying High With My Flyboy
I'm not a gadget kind of girl. I have an iPhone, because it's easy to use. And I like my Macbook, because it's even easier. My iPhone houses my iPod, RunKeeper my calendar, allows me access to my classes online via Blackboard, check email, and I can even listen to Dr. Laura from her website!
How does your adulthood compare to what you imagined it would be like when you were a little kid? submitted by L to the Third
It's better than anything I had imagined! Because, I really don't remember dreaming about my adult life as a little girl. I think just surviving my childhood was hard enough! I'm just happy to have accomplished everything that I have, to have my husband, the opportunity to finish my Associates, and an opportunity to create a home of our own.
What is your favorite chocolate recipe? submitted by Our First Deployment
Brownies. I like them thick, thick, thick and gooey-ooey all over the place. Stick to your teeth kind of stuff. From the box will do.
How do you deal with military life when it gets to be to much or to hard? submitted by Combat Boots And Pointe Shoes
My husband and I have yet to deal with a deployment or even a field mission. I am working on strengthening our relationship as much as I can now, working on our weak points so that we are strong and resilient no matter that the military throws our way. I also like to run though. Working out and getting those endorphins going is the healthiest, happiest way for me to cope. Whiskey second.
What piece of advice would you give a new Military spouse facing their first deployment? submitted by The Albrecht Squad.
I feel silly answering this, as I haven't had to deal with deployment yet, but, I do know what I would do. I would get in contact with my FRG. I would take the classes they offer at the Resiliency Campus. I would get in contact with Military Family Life Consultants and have a few meetings with my soldier and I to discuss our feelings, our coping mechanisms, potential issues we may face, etc. I'd also find a marathon to be training for while he was gone. We did spend the 1st 6 months of our relationship long distance, so we really managed to overcome a lot of obstacles and learned to make the best of the situation.
Thank you, Wife of a Sailor!
Happy Friday all! :)
