Brand and I just upgraded to the iPhone 5's over the weekend.

We are having a great time with Siri.

Brand just asked her, "Siri, are you my bitch?"

And she said, "Please."

Cracks me up.

Pretty soon I am going to change the name of my blog to "Grumpy's Blog."

I seem to be stuck in a foul mood.

So is Ryan apparently.

Today I discovered that my house key fell off my key chain and is missing.  How does that even happen?

Also, Jayden's fraction homework makes me feel like an idiot.  I try to help her, but I suck at math.  Like I'm really bad at math.  Like I still count on my fingers.

Is there a practical use in life for mixed fractions? 

I guess I'm done whining for today.

My husband says I dress like a grandma...amongst other things.

A staple to my wardrobe is the ever-so-lovely cardigan.

I wear them to work.  I wear them with jeans.  If you see me out and about, chances are I'm either sporting a hoodie or a cardigan.  Clearly I'm not a fashion icon, but my husband tells me I dress like a grandma.  He has straight up given me a complex.

I think my gray cardi is hella sexy.  So there.

I think it's time to clean my car out.  It's getting a little, uh, cluttered on the passenger side.

 Remember how I said my goal was to unpack all my boxes over the weekend?


Instead I laid in bed and watched, like, 20 episodes of Grey's Anatomy or, as Jayden calls it, Grey's Academy.  So much for progress.  I opted for McDreamy instead.

Five on Friday

1.  Jayden got "asked out" today.  OH MY FREAKING LORD.  She told her suitor that her dad won't let her have a boyfriend.  How funny is that?!?!?

2.  Today, for the first time in my life, I had a dream that my teeth were falling out.  What a weird sensation.  Not really a fan.

3.  It's Friday...which means Ryan will be in this position for the foreseeable future.

4.  Jayden has a friend over and they're playing Barbies.  At 10 years old, she is showing interest in Barbies for the first time ever.  Stick to the Barbies.  Forget the boyfriends.

5.  Goal this weekend:  Finally unpack all the boxes.  I suck at moving.

Cheers to the freakin' weekend, my friends!!!!

I was in a great mood today...until I picked up the kids from school.

Let me tell you, fighting with a 10-year-old girl over nonsense makes me grouchy.

The newest phase of life I'm in, which I'll entitle "Hormones," is quite trying.  I don't remember 10 being such a hard age.  I guess 10 is the new 12.  And 12 sucks.

When my patience is gone, I tell her to get away from me, that she's acting crazy again.  I don't know that it's the most effective manner of parenting, but it's where I'm at.

My son has become quite a video game addict.  Our newest rule is that he can only play on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.  I'm forcing him to explore other interests.

Today we spent 30 minutes or so at the park.  I wish it would just get warm already so we could spend way more time outside.

Now that we live in a place with zero yard, the park will be my respite.

Life is good, a bit challenging...but that keeps things interesting.

Happy Thursday!
