So over on Wife of a Sailor, Wife posts questions for other bloggers to answer on their own military spouse blogs. (Still with me so far?) And since I was getting married on Friday, I thought it might be fun to fill this out while I sub today. Have I piqued your curiosity? Well, what are you waiting for? Keep reading… (BTW, see #2 for that answer.)
1. What’s one thing in the past month you would have changed?
Nothing comes to mind. I have been trying to adopt a go-with-the-flow attitude, or at least remembering to when I can. I know I have made mistakes and attempted to correct them and/or vowed to not repeat them. I know that life could be a lot easier and without drama, but eh, c’est la vie…
Oh, wait. Maybe when I went on a coffee run at the Disneyland Hotel, I should have had one of these…
2. What was your favorite thing that happened in April?
Everything! The kids were off track and started a free month long trial at a local karate studio. My husband came home and my family threw a party for him the day he arrived. The following day we drove down to Disneyland, partaking in the military discount for the 3-day hopper tickets. Last Friday, we got married!
When we got married twelve years ago, we did not get married in the Catholic church. On Friday, our marriage was convalidated (I keep saying “consubstatiated” and giggling; all of you Catholics who have been to mass lately know why) in a very brief ceremony with a handful of friends who could make it. It was last-minute but we were grateful that our priest could accomodate us. Ask me later why my husband’s wedding ring is in the shape of Hello Kitty.
3. What are your plans for Memorial Day?
We don’t have plans yet. We don’t live near a base but I look for local commemorative events that honor our veterans.
4. Have you ever traveled Space A? If yes, where… if no, would you ever try it?
I have no idea what Space A means and do not have internet access to Google it. I suppose I would try anything once, especially if I could do this without the kids!
5. What are you looking forward to in May?
I look forward to heading to the gym to work out more and use the pool. School and church are winding down. Nothing quite compares to afternoons at the pool, bringing a picnic lunch, and tiring out the kidlets!
