millie fillie once again

1. Since most of the country has had nasty weather, what has your weather been like this week?
I'm a re-adapted Florida weather wimp, so I've been COLD!  It got down into the 30's when I came home from choir practice last night, and it's been raining.  I actually busted out my heaviest coat (only one with a hood), which I thought I had only reserved for trips.  Well, at least we don't have any snow.  The day I learn how to shovel snow will probably be the worst day of my life!

2. What is/are your best money saving tip(s)?
Planning, planning, planning.  Plan your meals out (I'll be posting my method for this next week), shop with a list, and don't buy anything else.  Also, avoid credit card debt--it's the worst kind!  If you don't pay off your card in full every month, that $50 sweater is gonna end up costing you WAY more than it was ever worth.  And the bottom line: live beneath your means.  Just because you got it doesn't mean you gotta spend it.

3. What was your favorite vehicle you’ve ever owned??
Well, I've only owned one car, Ginny my 2008 Corolla.  She's fab.  My runner-up is my old bicycle that I used to get around Jax when I lived there.  I hope the jackass who stole it off the porch is treating it well.

4. What is a question you’d like to see asked in a future fill-in? (Your question & blog just may appear one week!)
If you were a breakfast cereal, which one would you be?

5. Fill in the blank: You might be a MilSpouse if….
(I will be including some of your answers in a future post (with a link to your blog, of course!)

You might be a MilSpouse if… when you hear a civilian gal whining about her husband being gone on a business trip for a few days and babbling on about how she misses him so terribly even though he texts her throughout the day and calls her every night, your eyes get kinda squinty and you look away and keep your mouth shut because your mama told you that if you can't say something nice, don't say it.  But you're really thinking to yourself, "ARE YOU EFFING KIDDING ME?!?!?!"
