The Hubs got himself a new smart phone. 

He had a semi-smart phone previously, you know, a blackberry.

But now he has a really smart phone, it corrects his spelling and everything!

And he downloaded some nifty apps, like new alarm sounds and ring tones.....  Angry Birds.....  A level.

This morning, he had his new alarm app set up. 

It was Reveille. 

I had a flashback to basic training.  At 5:45 in the morning I was halfway to finding my boots before I realized that I was no longer at Lackland and didn't need to worry about my can tine.......

He found it profoundly entertaining.

I did not.

Later in the evening I called my Grandmother.

She was telling me how my Grandfather enjoyed his 80th Birthday Party a great deal and has already announced plans for his 90th Birthday.

My Grandmother mentioned she plans on going with an Army themed party then.  She is going to have Chow Hall food served and a Bugler available to play Reveille every 30 minutes to keep my Grandfather awake..... 

See how my family functions?  It explains a lot.  Huh?

I Kind'a Wish

Somebody told me that I would have to repeat 7th Grade Math with each child I birthed.. 

You want to know an effective form of birth control, teach kids an equation that proves the number of times they would have to repeat a subject is contigent on the number of kids they pop out.

I can assure you that our teen pregnancies issue would drop like a cinder block off a cliff.

WhamBamThankYouMam + BowChicaWowWow=7th Grade Math AGAIN!

I adore my kids.  School, not so much.  Which can explain why maybe our schools are not so great right now.  Who wants to relive 7th Grade Math, with Mr Turner and his monotone approach to quadratic equations?

Not I, says this Suburbanite. 

The Hubs made his attempt at 7th Grade Math Reincarnated this week.  The result was not the answer he was anticipating.  Instead he found 12 year old Daughter + Engineer Dad = Chrenobyl.  Definitely not the same math that is required for building a factory.

Alex on the other hand asked The Hubs "what caused the deterioration of the Roman Empire?".  And then he asked "Why?". 

And then Alex informed me that "Dad" was not "prepared" for his questions...

I guess, maybe, I should hold off on telling The Hubs that Moops has a 'girlfriend'.....
