Milspouse Friday Fill-In

This week’s questions are
1.What is something you wished you’d learned to do earlier in life?
I wish I had learned to ski.  I've been a couple of times, and while I have gotten better (trust me, it was hard for me to get much worse), I would love to be able to swoosh down the slopes.  
2.What is your biggest pet peeve with the military?
Deployments are starting to wear me a little thin.  I'm all about Gunner doing his part, but why has he been gone 3 years in Iraq and now to Afghanistan, when some guys haven't been yet.  My friend asked her ex's CO that same question because hers never deployed.  He answered with "You don't want an idiot with you".  While that doesn't apply to all people, how do you make it an entire enlistment and not go anywhere?  
  1. What tourist attraction near you have you never seen?
That's easy to answer since we have only been here a year.  I haven't seen Pikes Peak, with the kids.  I saw it when I was 7, but that was years and years and years ago.  
  1. What are you avoiding doing right now?
Folding laundry so I can go to bed.  I dread folding laundry.  It's not the actual folding, but the delivering and putting away, which if I don't do, I see the same clothes in the laundry again.  A never-ending cycle...
  1. Wine, beer or liquor?
I like it all, but lately it is wine.  I loved the beer in Germany though!

*I wish I'd learned how to play the piano or be fluent in another language (such as Spanish)

*It's all about the red wine. So much so that Neil Diamond wrote a song about it. He didn't write one about white wine...

I don't understand why some deploy less (or not at all!), either.

Thanks for participating... hope to see you next week, too!

We've gotten the short end of the stick on deployments, too. It's just luck of the draw in the Navy really. Out of all of my friends, my husband is the one that's always gone and it's getting SO old.

I hate doing laundry too. Actually, folding isn't my least favorite part. I hate sorting it before washing it. Also, our dryer eats anything strappy, so I hate having to go through my wet laundry piece-by-piece to make sure nothing with straps goes in the dryer.

Roger that on the deployment answer. And laundry is not really a huge issue for me, but I am looking forward to when my dish-washer gets back. :)

Instead of skiing try snowboarding! It's much easier (in my opinion). I skiid one season and couldn't stop no matter what I did. My way of stopping was either to run someone over (not intentionally) or to fall at the bottom.. if I even made it there. Good luck! : )
