Milspouse Friday Fill-in

It's Milspouse Friday Fill-in time! I havent participated in awhile, but thought I would today. 
Head over to Wife of a Sailor to see more! 

What is your favorite MilSpouse blog (not including Wife of a Sailor who we all love, or your own)? submitted by Our Crazy Life (Wifey note: whaaaat? You can't say my blog? No fun! LOL, just kidding)

Hmm... This is a tough one because I do love so many...
A few of my favorites are:
Army of Two, the annoyed army wife, My Goal is Simple, Adventures in Italia, 
It's a Dog Tag Wife Life, My Camo Colored Life, Tomorrow is Another Day & {Mis}Adventures of an Army Wife. See my side bar for more though, seriously there are just too many to list. 

What are your favorite perks about your s/o being deployed (we all know there are perks)? submitted by Ramblings of a Marine Wife
I actually think there are very, very few. 
We make more money & I dont have to cook or clean as often. 

How long did you date your before getting engaged? Married? submitted by Utterly Chaotic
We dated for 2 years before getting engaged and got married 3 months later. We didnt have our wedding until 6 months after we were legally married though. 

What do you think your would do if s/he wasn’t in the military? submitted by Adventures of M-Squared
I think he would be a teacher. He is so patient and great at teaching, that I think he would make a wonderful teacher or instructor of some kind. 

If you could talk to the Secretary of (fill in your appropriate branch) what is one suggestion you would like to bring to their attention in order to improve the lives of military families?  submitted by My Life as His (Air Force) Wife

Hmm... That despite what they may think, longer deployments, less often, do not provide more stability for families, nor to they comfort them or make the situation any better.

I hope you enjoy my guest today! 
She's a real life friend, so be sure to stop by her blog and check it out!

The deployment length/time at home issue is such a complex one, isn't it? I know people who deal with longer and less frequent deployments and people whose spouses aren't gone for as long at a stretch, but the comings and goings are nigh constant. I think it's rough no matter what.

Thanks for the shout out, I love your blog too! I went neutral and posted a totally non-Military blog. Hope you're having a great weekend!
