MilSpouse Friday Fill-In


I always feel like I’m
_________________ years old, but in reality, I’m_________________ .
I still don't feel like a 'grown-up', I kinda wonder if I ever will. Heck, I'm married (for 5 years!), have a 2 year old, and have another baby on the way. I've done cross country moves and found a house by myself online and arranged everything for it over the phone and through emails. Pretty grown-up stuff, right? I still feel like I'm a little kid playing house though. In reality, I turned 25 this year.

I wish my family understood better when I tell them _________________ . 
I got really lucky in the family department. They've been there for me and supported me through it all--even when some of my decisions were a little crazy. So I don't really have anything that comes to mind to say I wish they'd understood better--if they didn't understand well, they hid it well and supported me anyway!

If you saw me when I _________________ , you’d think I was a total girly-girl, but if you saw me when _________________ , you’d think I was a tomboy through-and-through.
I can channel my inner girly-girl diva, but don't often because 1) it's a lot of work to do my hair and make-up and 2) I rarely feel like I have a time that requires that much time/energy. The tom-boy in me comes out whenever it's needed! Mom & I power-tilled the backyard this summer and prepared it to lay sod. That tom-boy sure comes in handy sometimes!!

I feel like I’m in a totally different universe when _________________ .
I'm reading. Cliche, I know, but I can really lose myself in a good book. Not bad ones though--I reminded myself of that a couple mornings ago when I woke up early and didn't really feel like getting up, so I grabbed my kindle. Thankfully the book was free, I would've been extremely upset if I'd had to pay for it, but grammatical errors, spelling errors, and general bad writing made the two chapter worth (but was broken into 10 chapters) snippet of a story almost laughable to read. I have found some really good books on the free list though--including the current one I'm reading!!

In honor of this being MFF #60… 60 months ago (exactly 5 years ago, so September 30, 2006) I lived in _________________ and my life was totally different because _________________ .
September 2006 was a great month! I got married that month, so on 9/30/06, I was living in Terre Haute, Indiana. My life was totally different because we weren't an Army family yet!! That wouldn't happen til the next summer!
