Friday Fill-in

  1. What is one of the things you always do special when your husband returns from a deployment?  submitted by Keep Calm and Soldier On  I guess we don’t really have one of those traditions yet.  I love to meet him at the jet when he gets home and get Abbie and I dressed up.  When he gets home from this deployment, we’ll have to start some sort of tradition.  Maybe we’ll make me being normal sized (aka - very newly pregnant) when he leaves and HUGE (aka – close to 8 months pregnant) when he gets back a tradition!  =)  (I almost put aka – not pregnant for that first one, but then I realized that doesn’t exactly sound good.  I was most definitely pregnant BEFORE he left!!)
  2. What do you do to help your spouse and/or yourself re-adjust after a deployment or long separation?  submitted by Diapers, Dogs and Deployments  The longest separation we’ve been through so far has been 7 weeks, so him getting home from being gone for 6-7 months is a new thing for us.  I’m not sure what either of us will have to do to re-adjust to life together, but I’m anxious to find out!
  3. Are you a crazy coupon clipper (I’m becoming one, so share your secrets with me)?  submitted by Married My Airman  Can’t help you there.  I don’t have any secrets because I’m not a crazy coupon clipper.
  4. What’s your most treasured memory of you and your spouse (not counting your wedding – that’s a given)? submitted by Scrubs, ACUs and One Crazy Ride  Hmm…  I have a lot.  I seem to remember the days before we were even dating (but I was calling him my pretend boyfriend) very vividly.  Sitting in class next to him.  Working out with him.  Studying with him.  Going to bars with him.  I also loved our 3 week trip around Europe in 2008 and have lots of memories from that.  And I will NEVER forget the first time he held our daughter.  The look in his eyes and the smile on his face, it was pure joy and fascination.
  5. If you could live anywhere overseas, what would you pick and why? submitted by Little Moments Like This  London!!  I would love to live in England!

I like your correction on #1. That would have had some jumping to conclusions!

Your answer to #4 is so sweet... :-) It's the little moments that truly matter!

England is my top pick too! England=Heaven in my book. Castles and quaint little cottages? I'm in :)

Your parenthetical aside in #1 cracked me up. :-)
