OT- female logic??

Damn I love her dearly, and you would think after 30 years with her that it wouldn't baffle me anymore, but sometimes I still don't get it. 

So yesterday evening my 25 year old son who just started his 5th year at USC in Columbia called mom to tell her what his  schedule looked like. After she gets off the phone she and I discuss it a bit and then she heads off to bed at about 9:30. I go to bed at at midnight, which she knows because she had just woke up for a potty break when I came in there. Then at 1:45  she wakes me up because she is concerned that between his new class schedule, his job and his nightly gig in the fall as an assistant football coach at one of local high schools, he is not going to get enough sleep on Thursday and Friday night. 

Now after discussing him not getting enough sleep  with her for 30 minutes I am wide awake and spending my morning with y`all. While she and, I'm sure my son  are both sound asleep!  :o

    Happy to look in on him if helpful. After looking at his choice of schools, looks like he is already making better choices than say.....dad? JKOC.....I have a 25 year old son myself. They have much more stamina and energy than we do. He will be fine....the wife, well plenty more to come from her.

    Oxymoran?

    Keep that pimp hand strong playa!  Tell her to get it straight or pack the bags.  









    Obviously, I'm messing around.  He'll be just fine with all that going on.

    Yea... I'm not worried about him, he is a pretty smart kid... Die hard AU fan just chose his school based off of the girlfriend's location! So he ain't to too stupid... ;) And he has been on his own there since we left Sumter 4 and half years ago... Still, thanks for the offer.

    Just tell her every morning that you are sorry, and when she ask "why did you say that" just admit I am sure at some point today I will screw up.

    My bride and I made an agreement 13 years ago that has resulted in 13 years of bliss.  Each day I wake up feeling luckier than the day before.


    Divorce isn't for everyone though.

    I guess you haven't figured out after 30 years that female logic changes on a daily basis, or more often, as needed.

    I'd say you'd better be hoping she doesn't get wind of this thread! Never mind, she already did, and tonight is really gonna suck for you! 
    LOL,  Girl... you are probably right...  it's not the first time my mouth has got me in trouble around this house and it surely won't be the last. But I must be doing something right cause she has stuck around for this long and it definitely wasn't for my money or my looks... I count myself lucky everyday... even if I never will understand what's going on in that pretty little head of hers!  ;)
