Common sense and common "Army" sense are two totally different things.
I've got pretty good common sense. (Ab's lack of common sense does not come from me!)
If I had common "Army" sense.....
I would not have gotten excited LAST month about Gunner coming home THIS month. He's not.
I would have made notarized copies of my POA's, so that when the house flooded and they were ruined, that I would not be trying to get one from Afghanistan, like yesterday, since my ID card expires in mere days.
I would not have taken on so much in March thinking that Gunner would be home, because surely we all know that the Army will change things.
I would have switched our doctors to a closer location as soon as we moved on post, because trying to get Em into the doctor for her ankle is stressful for the whole family since we are still assigned to the Academy. (Plus side, I love them there, but the drive and time it takes is getting old!)
I would have sent a few more cards to Gunner in case he was extended, because then because of the laws of the Army, he would have missed them all and been home already.
I would have hired a maid like I did last deployment.
What common "Army" sense things can you add to the list?
