You all hear from the dogs behind the blog quite frequently, but there’s another very important member of the Countdowns and Cupcakes family who doesn’t appear on the blog as often. Since it’s largely because of his career that this blog exists in its current form, I thought it was definitely time for a little Q&A with my husband!
What is work like when you’re home from deployment?
It’s definitely not the same. All you really want to do is get back on a plane and go do your job again. Obviously I’m excited to be home with my family, but being tied to a desk sucks.
Do you picture life after the Navy? What does it look like?
I definitely do and know I want to be self-employed. I also want to be a dad extraordinaire and maybe a part-time professional fisherman, golfer, chef and stockbroker. The Navy taught me to multitask and I’m going to do it!
What’s your biggest goal for the rest of the year?
I really want to make senior chief and I want to finalize enrolling in school to complete my degree.
What’s your favorite hobby right now?
My favorite hobby right now is investing. Learning about finances and the way the economy moves is really fascinating to me. I also really like doing yard work; I like learning something new and then seeing the results when you do it well is very rewarding.
What is your favorite part of spring in North Carolina?
Watching everything turn green-especially my lawn!
