Milspouse Friday Fill-In #19


It’s Friday which means it’s time for the Milspouse Friday Fill-In. Head over to Wifey’s blog to learn more and to link up your blog.

1. Have you and your spouse agreed to live in separate locations (a geographical bachelor tour) knowing that the short-term inconvenience would have long-term benefits for your family? How did it work for you? submitted by When Good People Get Together

We’ve never experienced this so I can’t answer it. I don’t know that there would ever be a good enough reason to voluntarily stay behind while E would PCS to another duty station. He’s away enough as it is now so I wouldn’t want to voluntarily be separated from him.

2. What is your favorite thing about being a MilSpouse? submitted by Sarah Ruth Today

Even though the moving process itself is a pain in the you know what, I’ve enjoyed moving to different places, experiencing new things, and meeting new people. I also love all the friends I have made over the past 5 years!

3. If you could still have your spouse/significant other and your family, but take the military life out of it…would you? submitted by Trust. Love. Believe. Bake.

I don’t think that I would. E knew he wanted to become a soldier from a very early age and enlisted in the Army during his junior year of high school. He enjoys what he does and is looking forward to the career opportunities that he will have in the future. His job is a part of who he is so I wouldn’t want to take that away from him.

4. What have your homecoming experiences been like after a year long tour of separation? submitted by Army Soldier, Army Wife

So far we’ve only had one homecoming after a 15 month deployment and it was wonderful! It did take some time to readjust to living with him again though. Routines and schedules had to change but having him back home was the best feeling in the world.

5. If you have a child(ren) why did you choose their name(s)? If not, why would you name your child something? submitted by Tiara’s and ACU’s

Yah that’s a bit of a sore subject….no children yet. The names we will choose will have a good meaning behind them. If we ever have a boy, his middle name will be E’s and if we have a girl, I may incorporate my middle name if it flows well with her first name.
