A Little Humor

WIFE VS. HUSBAND
A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a
word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them
wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules,
goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, “Relatives of yours?”
“Yep,” the wife replied, “in-laws.”

WORDS
A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use
a day..30,000 to a man’s 15,000. The wife replied, “The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men…”
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, “What?”

CREATION
A man said to his wife one day, “I don’t know how you can be so
stupid and so beautiful all at the same time. The wife responded, “Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!


WHO DOES WHAT

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, “You should do it because you get up first, and then wedon’t have to wait as long to get our coffee. The husband said, “You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.” Wife replies, “No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do
the coffee.” Husband replies, “I can’t believe that, show me.” So she
fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the
top of several pages, that! It indeed says ………. “HEBREWS”

THE SILENT TREATMENT
A man and his wife were having some problems at home
and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, “Please wake me at 5:00 AM.” He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife hadn’t wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The paper said, “It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.”

One of my favorite times of year is coming up. It’s almost Fall, Yeah! I love the crisp, cool air, the falling leaves, Indian corn, pumpkins and hot apple cider. All of the fun things to do, the football games, hayrides and haunted forests. Tim’s Birthday is on Halloween so we have a double reason to celebrate and the food on Thanksgiving just can’t get any better. What are some things that you like to do during the Fall Season?

A question over at A Chelsea Morning was “How did you meet your honey”? Stop by there and play along.

My Honey and I used to work in the same store, I had seen him around now and then and I thought that he was a really good looking man. It was my 30th Birthday when we officially met for the first time, we were both working that day. Since it was my Birthday I had received several bunches of flowers, presents and balloons from my family and friends. When it was time to go home for the day he saw me leaving with them and said that I must have some nice friends and joked with me about turning Thirty.

 

After that we started talking a bit at work and I discovered that we really had a lot in common. Both of us were going through divorces at the time and we both loved cats, so right away we had something to talk about. There was defiantly some chemistry going on between us, so I used every excuse that I could come up with to be near him. Since we worked in different departments it wasn’t always easy but I certainly managed. I guess you could say that I was the one who was chasing him. We went out with friends after work several times and then went to a party together at our friend Brandi’s house, we also started chatting on Yahoo and eventually talking on the phone. The first time that we went out alone together I was so nervous that I thought I would pass out lol!

 

As time moved on we seemed to be getting closer and closer, I was crazy about him. Problem was, he wasn’t ready to be in a “relationship” but we kept on talking and kept on going out from time to time deciding that for the time being that we would just be, I guess you could say, very close friends.

 

A few months down the road my dad became deathly ill, he was in the hospital for two weeks and I knew that we were probably going to loose him. It was one of the hardest things that I have ever had to go through, but there was Tim, right there with me, supporting me through the whole ordeal. He stayed with me and my family at the hospital, even as we had my dad taken off of all the machines that he was on. It was awful, just siting there holding my dads hand, waiting for him to die. Thankfully Tim had me by the other hand, I don’t know how I would have gotten through that terrible time with out him. (Thank You Baby, I Love You!) Dad passed away about 36 hours later on December 22nd, the same day that Tim’s dad had died just a couple of years earlier. (coincident? I don’t think so!) When it came time for the funeral Tim sat with me and then came back to the house to be with me. Watching him going through that experience with me made me realise just how much he cared for me.

 

Not long after that we started dating, for real. We found out soon after, that our fathers were in the Navy together and had been friends for many years. I remember Tim’s dad coming over to visit my dad, I just didn’t know at the time that he was Tim’s dad. Last Christmas Tim and I were looking through some of my family photo albums and all of a sudden he says “Hey, what’s my dad doing in your family album?” he had found a picture of our dads that someone had taken my years earlier. So you see, I don’t believe that any of these things were a coincident. I believe that it was/is fate!! But either way, we are in love and if the rest of the story goes the way that I want it to, we live happily ever after!

So now that you all know the story of how Tim and I met. How did you meet your Honey?

9-11-2001

My thoughts go out to all of those who lost a loved one on 9-11-2001

 


“Where Were You (When The World Stopped Turning)”

Alan Jackson

 

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
Out in the yard with your wife and children
Working on some stage in LA
Did you stand there in shock at the site of
That black smoke rising against that blue sky
Did you shout out in anger
In fear for your neighbor
Or did you just sit down and cry

 

Did you weep for the children
Who lost their dear loved ones
And pray for the ones who don’t know
Did you rejoice for the people who walked from the rubble
And sob for the ones left below

 

Did you burst out in pride
For the red white and blue
The heroes who died just doing what they do
Did you look up to heaven for some kind of answer
And look at yourself to what really matters

 

I’m just a singer of simple songs
I’m not a real political man
I watch CNN but I’m not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

 

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day
Teaching a class full of innocent children
Driving down some cold interstate
Did you feel guilty cause you’re a survivor
In a crowded room did you feel alone
Did you call up your mother and tell her you love her
Did you dust off that bible at home
Did you open your eyes and hope it never happened
Close your eyes and not go to sleep
Did you notice the sunset the first time in ages
Speak with some stranger on the street
Did you lay down at night and think of tomorrow
Go out and buy you a gun
Did you turn off that violent old movie you’re watching
And turn on “I Love Lucy” reruns
Did you go to a church and hold hands with some stranger
Stand in line and give your own blood
Did you just stay home and cling tight to your family
Thank God you had somebody to love

 

I’m just a singer of simple songs
I’m not a real political man
I watch CNN but I’m not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

 

I’m just a singer of simple songs
I’m not a real political man
I watch CNN but I’m not sure I can tell you
The difference in Iraq and Iran
But I know Jesus and I talk to God
And I remember this from when I was young
Faith hope and love are some good things he gave us
And the greatest is love

 

The greatest is love
The greatest is love

 

Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day

Just Checking In

Going to school and working hasn’t left me with a lot of time to blog lately. We (Clinique) are having our Bonus Time right now and my hours have been long. I’ll be glad when its over because honestly, it’s a pain in the ass.

I haven’t had anytime to study for my exam that’s coming up. Tim came over tonight to help me study but we ended up falling asleep instead. I’m too tired to concentrate anyway. Hopefully I will be in the mood to study in the morning, I don’t have an exam until Wed. but tomorrow we start a new chapter that will also be on the exam so if I don’t learn the one we are on right now I’m going to be in a panic trying to learn both in one day. I really wish that I could afford to quit my job so that I could focus on school, it’s not an option though.

I am sorry that I have not been to anyones blogs lately, I will try to visit everyone soon. I hope that you all had a great weekend.
