We Love Sons

Author: Elias Massey
When my husband lost his job in finance, we found ourselves desperately trying to find ways that we could save money. I started to color my own hair, I clipped coupons, and we limited eating out to only special occasions. We also decided, in an attempt to save money, to drop our direct tv down to basic programming. In doing so, we still retained our local channels including PBS, so we could still stay informed of the world’s happenings, and our daughter could still watch the few shows she enjoyed. All of this seemed like a good idea, until we realized our new package no longer contained the FX network. “What??” my husband screamed on a random Tuesday night. I came racing in the living room fearing a child injury! There stood my husband, remote in hand, scrolling through our on-screen guide. “You are trying to tell me that we don’t get FX anymore? This means no “Sons of Anarchy!” yelled my husband. This was all it took. By the next morning, my husband was on the phone amending our account back to its regular status. No job or not, we have to have our “Sons!”

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In


It's time for MilSpouse Friday Fill-In. I am linking up with Wife of a Sailor. It's a great way for Military Spouses to visit each others blogs and get to know about each other. Each week Wife of a Sailor posts five questions for us to answer. We post them on our blog, and then go link-up to Wife of a Sailor's blog.

1) If I could be on any reality TV show, I’d want to be on TLC's What Not to Wear. I wouldn't let them get rid of my multitude of Converse, but I would definitely go on the show.

2) This past Thanksgiving was smaller than I would have liked it to be. The house smelled like Thanksgiving, but it didn't sound like it. There were not enough voices in the house this year.

3) I’m looking forward to December because it's a new adventure, in a new state, with a new weather experience...snow!!! ( *a little note to say all of these reasons are also why I'm not looking forward to December.*)

4)One thing I’d like to accomplish this month is getting prepared for Christmas before it becomes stressful to me.

5) To me, winter is  going to be much colder this year than it has been in years past.

That's all for this week's edition of MilSpouse Friday Fill-In. Don't miss out if you're a military spouse, or going to be one soon. Go link-up so I can read yours too! :)
