MilSpouse Friday Fill-in #2

Join in over here at Wife of a Sailor.

 

1. Tell us about your dream job… one that you could do regardless of pay.

My dream job would to own my own photography business again and be able to fully devote myself. I had began that endeavor here before my cancer diagnosis but got scared after my diagnosis and gave up. Dumb decision. It has allowed me to think more on what direction I’d like to take my photography and while I haven’t settled fully, I do know I am not cut out for family/kids photography. I love the idea of engagement, senior, boudoir and commercial. We shall see what Vegas brings and if I take that leap again.

2. What is your most prized material possession (kids and pets don’t count!)?

Hmm….I think that would be a toss up between my photos/scrapbooks and my cameras. One is a record of all the wonderful memories that will far outlast me and the other is what allows me to record those memories.

3. What has been your favorite duty station and why?

Does it sound funny to say that I hope it is the upcoming one to Creech AFB, NV? I say that because we are likely to be there a very long time and it always make life smoother when you enjoy the duty station. Otherwise, I’d have to say here at Eglin AFB, FL. We’ve been here almost 5 years and have really planted roots. The beach is (was…oil spill) gorgeous but I truly think it is the people that have made it for me.

4. What is your least favorite household chore?

Cleaning the bathrooms, hence why it is Bryan’s job when he is home and I put it off as long as possible when he’s not.

5. If you could give one piece of advice to a teenager today (not specifically a MilTeen), what would it be?

Be true to yourself. Do not conform, don’t try to change your beliefs for someone else and don’t try to keep up with the Joneses.

Oh, and don’t open credit card accounts, they are the spawn of satan :). There is something to be said for being debt free.

    I hate cleaning the bathrooms too! I hate cleaning the dog kennel even more, so the hubs and I have a deal: I clean the bathroom and he cleans the kennel.

    Great answers!

    My husband’s and my best friend couple got orders to Eglin. Good to hear it’s a good station. We are going to miss them a ton, but we have orders too, so I suppose it’s a sad story on both parts, plus it’s part of the military life. Enjoy NV!

    I’m okay with cleaning the bathroom when it’s just me… but when my husband is home, well, boys and the toilet are gross!

    Thanks for participating and I hope you’ll join us next week! I also hope your next duty station is the best!

    We used to have people TDY to Holloman AFB from Creech AFB. Mostly maintainers coming to learn new techniques for working on the F-22. I haven’t seen Eglin yet, but my husbands uncle is stationed out there.

    I would gladly be your test model for the boudoir photos…..as long as you don’t laugh at all my bumps, lumps, and floppy bits. :0)
