Army of Mom

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

Just a Tuesday

The Virginia Tech shootings are bizarre and I'm interested to find out more as the facts come out. I did wonder if things would have been different had a student been armed with a CHL of some sort and could have taken out this dude before he wiped out so many young lives. Seems that Kim DuToit was thinking the same thing. He found a very interesting quote from a Viriginia Tech spokesman in regard to that. Chris over at Mazurland made wonderful points about similar shooting sprees stopped by a CHL holder and used the same Va. Tech comment. I fear that comment may come back to haunt someone.

I went to bed thinking about the kids and obligations. I had a dream that we turned into WaterWorld (we're supposed to have rain tonight, which will likely rain out a soccer game) and then Pickle told me that he didn't want me for a mother any more. I have a technique that when the kids won't come with me when it is time to go, I usually tell them that I hope they can find another good mom since I'm leaving. In my dream, I tried that on him and he just told me I'm a crummy mom and that he was glad I was leaving. It was pretty bad.

Hat tip to Mazurland for this. Go check out the Black-eyed Peas singing My Humps and then check out the Alannis Morrisette version. Very good stuff there.

My husband is trying to cash in his manufacturer warranty on Wife No. 1. Seems he feels that when he purchased the product, no one disclosed that the product was defective. I'm having my gallbladder removed on April 30. The doctor didn't think it was wise to wait any longer since the symptoms are already pretty fierce. Turns out that the chest and shoulder pain is part of the gallbladder thing and likely not anxiety attacks as I feared. So, I guess that is good.

    Thanks for the links Mom.
    Good luck on the surgery. If your hubby is smart he'll hold onto you for the next 100,000 miles.

    I guess you're having the laproscopy? It will be okay...the worst thing is that your abs will feel like you've done 1 million situps afterwards. Take the drugs and learn to roll out of bed and land on your feet. :-)
