Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Not a bad day

I found out that I'm getting my pay bumped an additional $3 per hour today. Not too bad for only three days on the job.

Stinkerbelle is continuing to sit on the potty at both home and daycare and she peed on the potty today for the babysitter. Very nicely done little girl. She loves going to play with the children there. She is happy when I leave her and happy when I pick her up. The teachers there say she's a delight. She really loves playing with kids. The boys are excited because they get to go to UNT after school tomorrow with the extended day program and do science experiments in the Environmental Education, Science and Technology facility there. It is the same place Hot Rod's class went on a field trip a couple of weeks ago. So, they might get to go to the planetarium and dig some bones, etc. Should be a fun diversion.

I found an alternate route to and from work today that shaved about 10 to 15 minutes from my commute, sot that rocked.

I won some tickets to the VIP grand opening of the new Cinemark movie theater here in town. So, Army of Dad and I are going to go catch a flick and the kids get to play at the next door neighbor's house. As a trade-off, I'm taking her youngest to karate Friday night and then letting her stay with me afterwards. I'm getting the better end of this deal, but it all works out in the end. I'm not sure what we'll see. We have a choice of:
Are We There Yet? - no
Elektra - maybe
Fat Albert - yes for me, but most likely a no from AoD
Spanglish - ditto
Lemony Snicket, et al - no
Flight of the Phoenix - no idea what this even is
Ocean's Twelve - I need to see Ocean's Eleven first
Christmas with the Kranks - uh, no
The Spongebob Leatherpants Movie - seen it
The Polar Express - seen it and doubt AoD is aching to see it
Ray - eh, maybe
The Grudge - not just no, hell no
Friday Night Lights - this is AoD's vote
Ladder 49 - looks like a tear jerker, definite no

So, I dunno what we'll see. It will be free, so that alone makese any movie a decent choice. We may just go into different theaters. :)

I am going to see the surgeon in the morning to get the results of my follow-up breast ultrasound. I'm sure the results are fine or he would have wanted me to come in sooner. But, I'm still anxious and don't know what the results will be. I'm guessing he'll pronounce my boob just fine.

    I recommend "Friday Night Lights." I think you'll both enjoy it.

    I used to see a movie per week but fell way off of that last year. We did see "Friday Night Lights" and both liked it. I recommend it too. The missus really thought it was well done. I liked the West Texas memories - especially having attended an Odessa Permian game back then and not having been back in 12 years.

    The movie on this list I definitely want to see is "Ray" - and we plan to soon.

    Meanwhile, for what it's worth, the best movies I saw last year were "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "Sideways," and "The Aviator." Also really liked "Garden State."

    Oh yes, I'm keeping good thoughts still about your test results.

    Flight of the phoenix is a remake of 1960's flick. Plot: A passenger/cargo plane crashes in the Sahara. Passengers use parts of crashed airplane to build a smaller airplane and fly to safety. Adventure ensues.

    You definitely need to see Friday Night Lights. It was a great movie.

    Ok, I think I'll acquiesce to peer pressure and go with AoD to see Friday Night Lights. I just lived through all that when I lived in Midland. I, too, got to see a Permian game with LabKat. I think she was dating a sports writer from Temple and he got us tickets to the Temple-Permian game. You have to practically wait for someone to die to be a season ticket holder. It is a lot like getting tickets to a Packers game from what I remember. I think I saw another football game, too, with some fellow sports fans we met at the Angels' games there. Uzz and I went to both of those. I was working at the Midland Reporter-Telegram when the book came out and it caused quite the stink in the Permian Basin.
