Military Friday 3/11/11

* If you have entered yet, don't miss my current contest! Also, I joined a new 'link up' this past week and I am looking forward to doing it again. Click here to see my Traveling Tuesday post.

I am just thankful that I survived this week. It was so bad that I forgot about Friday ;0)  The kiddos have been sick and being the wonderful children they are, they shared it with me. Sickness should not be allowed during deployment. Thankfully, my mom is close and is a huge help. I don't know what I would do without her.

Before I head back to bed with a pot of Irish tea and my Kindle, I wanted to link up today with the Friday Fill-In and Weekly Round Up. 

Wifey at Wife of a Sailor is so awesome to do this every week. I always look forward to reading what everyone has to say.

1) During military separations (whether short or long) how do you keep yourself positive and motivated?

You mean I am supposed to be positive and motivated? I lose… (Kidding really, well mostly anyway.)

2) What is your favorite concert you have ever been to?
submitted by Young but Not (Completely) Dumb

Big concert - The Irish Tenors - I love their music. It works better than any blood pressure medication to keep me relaxed and sane, especially during deployment. 

John McDermott
Small concert - We got to see John McDermott perform at the Veteran's Memorial here in our little town one Memorial Day. He is an amazing artist and such a neat person. I love all that he does for our Veterans. He makes me cry every time with The Wall and Bringing Buddy Home.

3) What do you miss most about your “hometown”?

I grew up here - I wish we could leave, so I could miss it…
Unless you want to count the place I was born as my hometown, then I would say I miss the sunshine and warmth and people saying “ya’ll”.

4) If you could run in any race, which charity would you choose to support?

Well, I probably wouldn’t run. I don’t like having to break a sweat ;0)  But if I did, it would be for our Wounded Warriors.

5) You find out Willy Wonka is your father, what 3 course meal do you INSIST he create in that stick of gum?

My Colcannon last year...
Ugh, too many choices!! How about a cheese board with Irish Cheeses and brown oatmeal soda bread  (so amazing!) with Irish butter for an appetizer. 

Then a yummy steak (aged of course) topped with sauteed mushrooms and real colcannon dripping with butter. 

For dessert Raglan Road’s Bread & Butter Pudding with a whiskey sauce. I have been dreaming about that since August. Now I am hungry… 

This week's MilSpouse Weekly Round Up is hosted by Three Hands Full. Come over and join in on the fun! 

Have a wonderful weekend!




  1. I love seeing how many people chose Wounded Warriors for their charity! That would have been my answer too. And your #1 made me laugh. :)

    Hope you feel better soon!

  2. I love it, I want to move so i will miss it
