Military Spouse Friday Fill-In #33

These are kinda fun!

Here are this week's questions and my answers (pardon all the questions being numbered "1", I'm in a hurry and I'm having formatting issues):
  1. During military separations (whether short or long) how do you keep yourself positive and motivated? submitted by Married/Single Parent
I stay busy.  REALLY busy!  I did this when deployed myself, and I keep myself and the kids busy when I'm home with the kids while my spouse is away.  This means sports, Cub Scouts, music lessons, birthday parties, trips to the local parks and museums and lots of times hanging out with friends.
  1. What is your favorite concert you have ever been to? submitted by Young but Not (Completely) Dumb
Harry Connick, Jr. in Cary, NC in summer 2008.  He's amazing!  Handsome, talented, whimsical!  He was out on the stage for a solid 2 hours!  Didn't go back stage to change clothes or anything -- not once!  
  1. What do you miss most about your “hometown”?  submitted by A Florida Girl and Her Soldier
I'm from Norfolk, VA and usually I would say it's the smell of the salt air.  But I now live in Florida and I have that salt air back in my life.  And it's wonderful!
  1. If you could run in any race, which charity would you choose to support? submitted by Wookie & Co.
Susan Komen Race for the Cure.  A friend was recently diagnosed -- it's the research and support we have today and continue to need that made her diagnosis nice and early.
  1. You find out Willy Wonka is your father, what 3 course meal do you INSIST he create in that stick of gum?  submitted by A{muse}ing Mommy on a Pink Park Bench
That's going to have to be a SEAFOOD feast!  Lobster bisque, Alaskan King Crab legs, and Blackened swordfish.  Oh wait, and New York cheesecake for dessert!

I LOVE Harry Connick Jr! I listen to him every day. Partly because it makes me less homesick for New Orleans ;0)

Stopping by via the MFF.

Have a great weekend!

Hi Athena! Thanks so much for visiting! I've been writing about being a military spouse for years and I'm so excited to learn more about others who live similar lives to my own!

I remember getting "Red Light Blue Light" as a cassette tape when I was in high school -- I took it to college and played it till the tape wore out. By then, I had a CD player...the CD disappeared over the years, but last summer I downloaded the MP3s. I'm all set now!

I just downloaded his new Broadway CD. I love "Red Light, Blue Light"! One of my favorites!
