MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #20

Head on over to Wifey's to join in on the fun!  Sign up for her MilSpouse Secret Santa while you're at it!

1.  A different twist on last week’s question. This week, the first question is: what’s the nicest thing a MILSPOUSE has ever done for you? (brought to you from navy_smurfette)  A good friend (and milspouse, and former FRG leader) paid our rent for us for three months when our home was uninhabited (DH was in Afghanistan, I was still in CA).  This friend helped me out countless times.  She and another milspouse friend helped me get to and from auto/motorcycle repair shops, which was always a huge help.  The second friend also invited me over for dinner countless times, which was very much appreciated.  It's the little things!

2.  How often do you drive faster than the speed limit?  Damn near all the time.  I'm from California!  :)  You learn to drive aggressively!  Actually, the highway speeds are higher out here, which trips me out.  I probably drive faster on city streets than I need to, but our limits are really low which makes it easy to exceed them.

3.  Did you have a nickname in school? If so, what was it?  I had lots of variations on my name, Erin, and my last name.  I remember a bunch of pet names (Poop, Ermoo-moo), but no main nickname that stuck.

4.  If your life was a book, what would the title be and how would it end?  I hope my book ends like The Notebook (except for the Alzheimer's part) - with me  and my DH, holding hands, and going out (together) peacefully.  I'm not ready to pen a title to my book, since I'm hoping that there's more exciting chapters to come.  DH's suggestions would probably offend some readers, so I'll save you from them.

5.  Look back (in your planner if you have one) to September 14th… what did you do that day?  It was a Tuesday, so I was at school.  I had a conference with my administrator about my professional goals for the year.  I also covered another teacher's class so she could attend an IEP (not one of mine).

Yes it is! You really just have to get involved! I met both ladies through the FRG, and the second one through the battalion FRG.

My brother just informed me yesterday that a year and a half of Georgia living has made me drive too slow and I don't know how to drive in LA anymore. Ouch! And that milspouse friend sounds awesome! :)
