How many pets do you have? And what type? submitted by Life and Times of a Displaced Jersey Girl
You’d have to be new around here not to know this! We have two dogs. Bones is a year and a half old husky mix, and Shecky is a little over a year old lab mix (we actually think she’s a lab-whippet mix, but have no way to really confirm).
What are your favorite projects to do while hubby is away? submitted by my-inspired-nest
Anything house related. Chris comes home to new comforters, trees in the front yard, new planters, stained decks, etc. He would complain about the cost if he was home, but when he’s gone, no complaints. I have a whole list of house projects on a white board on the side of the fridge. My plan for next time he’s gone is to build a planter in the back yard off the deck and refinish an old table we have in the garage to be an outside dining table for summer. And maybe screen in the porch because what’s the use of an outside dining table if I’m getting eating alive by mosquitoes?
What are the must-haves in your deployment care packages? submitted by Christine’s Little Blog
I don’t get to send care packages because Chris generally isn’t gone long enough to get them and I don’t have contact with the ombudsman or anything for the boat he’s on, so no way to coordinate with them for a mail drop. So instead, I send him a box to open while he’s gone. Must haves: one card/letter per week, hot fries, and sour candy.
If you could star in any TV show, which would it be? submitted by Just a Girl
Burn Notice, but only if I were bad ass enough to hang out with Michael Westen, Fiona, and Sam. If I weren’t, then How I Met Your Mother, because I think they’d be fun to hang out with out. And they live in New York!
What was the biggest hurdle that you faced during your/your significant other’s first deployment? submitted by The Pavlik Perspective
Hmm, our first deployment was pretty non eventful. The biggest thing I was dealing with with taking Shecky to the vet every other week it seemed while they were trying to figure out her skin issues – she was super itchy and scratching bald spots on herself. They finally started treating her for environmental allergies right before he came home.
