MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

  1. How do you spend your deployment money, do you save, pay off bills or enjoy the extra money while it is there to buy the things you do not normally have?  (from Troop Petrie)  Yes, yes and yes. I have a system worked out. Our first paycheck of the month goes towards the bills. Last time we had only one credit card and I would make double payments on it. Half of our second paycheck would go into our savings account. We both tend to do more retail therapy during deployments. Christopher bought me a living room set online while he was in Iraq. He bought me a new laptop and digital camera online while in Afghanistan. That's why I think it's important to stash some in the savings. If we don't see it we don't spend it.
  2. If you could relive one occasion or moment, what would it be?  (from Currently On Land)  This is going to sound so cliché but our wedding afternoon since I barely remember it. *lol* Christopher was stationed at Ft. Drum and since we weren't married we lived off base in Watertown. He called home on a Wednesday afternoon to tell me he was coming home early and would I like to get married now. We already had all the paperwork done and he called the JP. He comes home, we get dressed up, run to the ATM for $25 to give the JP and interrupt the JP's dinner. We were married in his living room and I really don't remember much of it. It went so fast and we didn't think to take the camera (pre-digital days).
  3. What's the worst job you ever had and if it was so bad why did you take it?  (from Faith and Deploying)  I never really had a bad job. I worked at pizza places through high school (Showbiz Pizza Place/Chuck E. Cheese/Little Caesar's) and had fun. Through college I sold shoes (Sears/Champion) and did great on commission. Then I worked in the engineering field first designing A/C units for buses and then hospital feed pumps and thermometers. I think the worst part of working in the engineering field was being a women I had to work harder to prove my ideas were right.
  4. If you could play any character on TV, who would you be?   (from Many Waters)  Melissa from "Melissa & Joey" on ABC Family. If you haven't seen it head over to Hulu. I like their on screen chemistry and his abs. *lol* They also did a movie together "My Fake Fiance" and it too can be watched on Hulu.
  5. If you could become the world's expert in something, what would it be?  (from Army of Two)  I would love to be an expert of Adobe Design Programs (PhotoShop, Illustrator & Flash) and web design. When I went back to school for web design I was really hoping to be able to freelance and work from home. I just don't seem to have the time to sit down, undistracted and focus. So if you could just zap! all that info straight into my noggin that would be great.
