MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #20

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 just tucked the kids in their beds, I thought this might be fun to fill out because I’m waiting a few more minutes until they’re actually asleep to sneak some Ben & Jerry’s.

1. I WANT…

…to do a 5K next month. I walked two miles on Tuesday and today I… wait for it… jogged 4.6K today without stopping! Don’t be too impressed as I jog very slowly. So slow, in fact, that whenever I bring the big dog with me, he looks at me as if he’s saying, “Are you effing kidding me???”

2. I HAVE…

… to apologize to the kids tomorrow morning. Again. It has not been the best of times in this hizzouse this week. The kids have been taking turns getting sick and Lord knows I can’t sleep when they’re sick. I haven’t been able to work or work out in the past two weeks! Hopefully, running twice this week and working tomorrow will kick everything back into balance. Either that or I will have to find a sitter to watch my kids so I can put myself in time out for a while.

3. I WISH…

…it was Thanksgiving already then that would mean you-know-who would be home.

4. I HOPE…

…our household avoids illnesses this cold/flu season! I’ve had quite enough of hospitals, doctors, antibiotics, stitches, and sleepless nights to last me several seasons.

5. I WONDER…

…if I would be able to cut it in a doctoral program. It’s exciting to think about but intimidating as well. I also wonder if the kids are asleep. Coffee Heath Crunch ice cream, here I come!
