Racoon Robber??

I stole this video from Terri's blog. This raccoon is hilarious! I saw it on America's Funniest Home Videos a long time ago and enjoy it just as much now as I did back then! I love the music that was added to is in this clip. ENJOY!

What Dessert Are You Most Like?

I stole this meme from Karin. I'm so thrilled that she did a meme I thought I should steal it and join her in the fun! After reading what type I'm like, click on the link below and find out what dessert you are!

You Are a Cupcake

Cute and fun, you never take life too seriously.
People are constantly surprised by how delightful you are.

What Dessert Are You Most Like?

I'm not so sure about never taking life too seriously but I have had people tell me how surprised they are that I can be cheerful while caring for such a sick child. I figure I can do one of two things: I can either laugh or I can cry. Sometimes I cry but I really prefer to laugh. Lately I've been neglecting this "fun" blog and doing a bit of crying on the "serious" one. I'm going to try to lighten up a bit and enjoy life more.... even if I have to itch and try not to scratch the whole time.

What Kind of Pet Would You Be?

I found this meme and thought it would be fun to do. I tag EVERYONE. Even if you stopped by here accidentally then you still HAVE to do it. haha! Just kidding.... I thought this was a cute meme. What's interesting is the part that says: "What you would hate about being a dog: Being left home alone while everyone else is out having fun." Gee, you would think I'd be used to it by now! Ah, well, sometimes I am happy to stay at home and just chill out. By the way, let me know if you do this meme so I can come and see what kind of pet you would be!

You Would Be a Pet Dog

You're friendly, loyal, and an all around good sport. People love to be near you.
You are very open with your feelings, and you're quite vocal in expressing them.
You are sincere and kind. You love many people - without any sort of agenda.

Why you would make a great pet: You're content to chill out with your friends

Why you would make a bad pet: You always find yourself getting into trouble

What you would love about being a dog: Running around and playing

What you would hate about being a dog: Being left home alone while everyone else is out having fun
What Kind of Pet Would You Be?

Oh yeah, I updated this blog especially for CHRISTINE! ;-)

Today is o7-07-07

and it should have taken you 07 seconds to read that.... unless you are Christine who likes to waste 10 seconds reading my silly calendar numbers. ha

Movie Ratings

OK, so it's no secret that Jess has many medical issues. One of the biggest problem she is having right now is GI issues. Needless to say we spend a fair amount of time in the bathroom. To pass the time we talk about anything and everything. Tonight while we were in there we got to talking about going to see the Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I told her that she needs to get her rest so that she can feel up to watching the movie as it's almost 3 hours long. I then asked her if she could handle staring at Will Turner for that long. She laughed and said, YES! I laughed and asked if daddy might get jealous of me looking at Will Turner or if he will be trying to cover my eyes. She laughed and I said, "Well, he probably won't care since Will isn't nakid or anything in the movie." Jessica said something to the effect that if he was then it wouldn't be rated PG. I said it would be rated R. She said no, it would be rated "N". I asked her why it would be rated "N" and she looked at me like *duh!* "Rated N for Nakid!" I laughed so hard. Then she said that she should be rated "P". I asked why and she said "for Poop". That started a whole new bout of laughter.

So this post is rated "PM" for Potty Mouth. Sorry about that. But at least we were already in the bathroom for the potty mouth talk. ha!

Taxes, taxes and more taxes

This is for Jennyhaha who is dealing with taxes. Poor girl is over her head and tells about it in her post here: "Taxes Ruined My Quality of Life" I couldn't help but think of this Bugs Bunny Classic.

The Best Part of Being a Parent

This afternoon I made my last trek to Brandon's school to pick him up. Jessica knew that I was leaving to get Brandon and her home health aide was here so she went into her room to play her video game and closed the door. When Brandon and I got home I realized that Karl's patrol vehicle was here and that he had gotten home early. I went into the house and went back to my bedroom to talk to Karl and see how his day went. While we were talking the phone rang but Jessica picked it up before I could answer it. I went into my bathroom. (I know, TMI, but it is relevant to the story). Right after that my cell phone rang and Karl answered it. I recognized the ring and that it was Jessica calling my cell phone. I realized that Jessica had no idea that either Karl or I were home. I giggled as I thought of her surprise when her dad answered my phone (Jess thought he was at work and I was out getting Brandon). I then hear Karl telling Jess, "Yes, I'm shopping with Mommy." "No, Mommy can't come to the phone right now." "I'll tell Mom to get you a diet coke on her way home." He hangs up my cell phone and we both start laughing.... then we hear Jessica's voice in the hallway. "Daddy, is that you?" (the bedroom door is closed so she can't see who is in there)

Karl: "No, it's not me."

Jess: "Yes it is!"

Karl: "No it isn't, I'm shopping with Mommy!"

Jess: "Daaaaad!"

Karl: "Really, I'm not here, I just left my voice behind!"

Jess: "You are too home! Can I come in?"

Karl: "Ok, come on in."

Jess: "Daddy, you tricked me!"

Karl: "Yes I did and it was FUN!"

Jess giggling, "Why did you trick me?"

Karl: "Because you are so sweet and gullible."

Jess: "Where's Mommy?"

Karl: "Mommy's not here."

Me (from the bathroom): "I'm not here, I just left my voice behind."

Jess: "Mom! I know you're in there"

Later Jessica told Karl that she knows how to unlock the lock on her bedroom door. Karl said he didn't believe her so she unlocked it to prove him wrong. So then Karl tells her that he is going to call the police and measure her oxygen tubing to see how far it can go and see which houses she has unlocked and stolen stuff out of. Her response... "Daaaaaaaaad!"

Messing with kids' minds.... the best part about being a parent. hehe!

Musical Monday

Jessica, like most young children, usually loves to talk about herself. She talks about everything under the sun. She talks about what she watches on TV, what her favorite colors are, who her favorite actors and actresses are, what games she's playing, what she just picked up off the floor, what she is going to do for her next birthday, who she wants to draw a picture for next, what games she wants to buy in the next several months, what her favorite foods are, what movies she has seen and what ones she wants to see next, what her favorite animals are, and on and on... CONSTANTLY. So some days....

I Wanna Talk About Me!

I get a kick out of the bad guy in the back seat of the patrol car. hehe...

Interview With a (Weird) Blogger

I agreed to be interviewed by two bloggers, Julia and Chelle. I am going to answer Julia's questions here since she asked an odd question (#3) and I have an odd answer with a few photos wouldn't you know?! And Chelle, I haven't forgotten you, I'll get to your questions soon.

1. What are your favorite shoes to wear - or do you prefer to be barefoot?

I used to prefer to go barefoot but then I discovered that I don't get to either sweep or vacuum my floors as often as they need it and they tend to get crunchy because my children are messy and lazy (they don't sweep or vacuum either) and I HATE to step on
crunchy stuff barefooted so now I wear shoes. I prefer something comfortable that I can slip into easily. If you know of a shoe that I might like, let me know! I'm always looking.

2. What is the greatest lesson life has taught you?

Whatever doesn't kill you will make you stronger. (whether you want to be stronger or not!) I love the saying in the movie "Aladdin" when Aladdin says something to the effect that "It's amazing what you can live through!" after realizing that even though a genie can't kill you, he can sure hurt you! I've been so amazed at the things I've lived through in this life and the pain I have felt watching my daughter struggle with her medical problems. I've had people mention that I'm a very strong person. Well, I
have to be strong... I don't necessarily want to be. It also helps to have support from loved ones and a sense of humor. Check the next question.

3. What is the oddest thing you have done?

Here's the fun stuff. hehe... People usually see my reserved, serious side but I really can be a nut, too. Before I cut all my hair off last week my husband took some picture of me being silly. I used to do "Cousin Itt" imitations. Jessica got in on the fun too. I can't believe I am posting these amazingly strange pictures but hey, you asked for it!

Karl said that the first picture looked like he had taken a picture of the back of my head with sunglasses so I put my hands up by my face so you could see it really wasn't the back of my head. That is my long hair brought up and over my head and over my face. Yeah, I know... I'm weird.

Yikes! I can hardly breathe in here! See? It really wasn't a stunt... I wonder how Cousin Itt can stand it?

Jessica wanted in on the action. Her hair wasn't as long or as thick as mine but hey, we had fun. At least you can't see how blue she is, right?

4. If you were to dye your hair some other color than typical hair color (ie, blond, black, etc. would be typical) what color/s would you go for?

I confess, I do color my hair but it is a typical hair color. I guess I would have to go for pink. I love pink and so does Jessica.

5. Can you roll your tongue?

Hey, what else do you expect at 4:00am?! ROFL!

When Hallmark Writers Have a Bad Day:

Ever wondered what happens when Hallmark writers are having a bad day?

My tire was thumping.
I thought it was flat
When I looked at the tire...
I noticed your cat.



Heard your wife left you,
How upset you must be.
But don't fret about it...
She moved in with me.


Congratulations on your wedding day!

Too bad no one likes your husband.


How could two people as beautiful as you

Have such an ugly baby?


I've always wanted to have
someone to hold,
someone to love.

After having met you ...
I've changed my mind.

I must admit, you brought Religion into my life.

I never believed in Hell until I met you.


As the days go by, I think of how lucky I am...

That you're not here to ruin it for me.


Congratulations on your promotion.

Before you go...

Would you like to take this knife out of my back?

You'll probably need it again.


Happy Birthday, Uncle Dad!

(Available only in Tennessee, Kentucky & West Virginia)


When we were together,
you always said you'd die for me.

Now that we've broken up,
I think it's time you kept your promise.


We have been friends for a very long time ..
………let's say we stop?


I'm so miserable without you
……..it's almost like you're here.


Congratulations on your new bundle of joy.

Did you ever find out who the father was?


Your friends and I wanted to do
something special for your birthday.

So we're having you put to sleep.


So your daughter's a hooker,
and it spoiled your day.

Look at the bright side,
it's really good pay.

Hoppy Easter

I saw an Easter card several years ago with a cute little bunny hopping around, delivering easter eggs with the saying, "Hoppy Easter" and I've liked saying it ever since. I googled 'easter bunny pictures' and found this:

YIKES! That dude is scary! I am shocked that little girl isn't kicking and screaming. So I'm going to post a picture of our very own bunny, Mary. She's actually Jessica's bunny named Mary Elizabeth Potter after Jessica's character, Mary Potter, Harry's long-lost sister. Isn't she cute?

Musical Monday

I'm a little late posting this but better late than pregnant never, right? Here's to all my wacky cyber and 3-dimensional friends:

Visions of dead flowers, broken chocolate and a handmade card

My dear cyber-friend, Mary, had a vision that dead flowers, broken chocolate and a handmade card were in my future. How right she was!

Here are the dead flowers and broken chocolate. The dead flowers are much more beautiful (and functional) than I would have envisioned!

The flowers are PENS! How clever is that?!

Only the chocolate wasn't broken when it arrived, it was melted! So I put it into a plastic bag and into the fridge it went. Later I got it out and here's what it looked like:

Of course I couldn't let the chocolate just sit there, it could melt again! There were starving wolves children laying prey so I had to throw them little pieces of chocolate to keep them from attacking me... so after a few minutes, the chocolate really was broken:

But like I told Mary, I love chocolate in any shape... and it was good.

Here are the dead flowers with the beautiful handmade card:

Thanks Mary, you really made my day!

Scary 'Mary Poppins' Trailer: THE ORIGINAL

The Mommy Test

We all get those emails that pop into our mailboxes every day that have been forwarded a bijillion times. I skim over them and some I delete but a few jump out at me as being really cute or funny. Some, like the following one, is true. Enjoy:

I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that.

"Why?" my daughter asked.

"Because it's been lying outside, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty and probably has germs" I replied.

At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Wow! How do you know all this stuff?"

"Uh," ...I was thinking quickly, "All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mommy Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mommy."

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information.

"OH...I get it!" she beamed, "So if you don't pass the test you have to be the daddy."

"Exactly" I replied back with a big smile on my face and joy in my heart.

Back Again

So I decided to revive this blog. It took a bit of CPR and a few jolts from the paddles but it is back. I have a few family members and friends who follow my other blog mainly to keep up with Jess and the rest of the family and I don't want to discourage them from visiting that blog. I'll post some interesting things there but for other silliness I think I'll post here.

I think my funny bone has been injured and needs mending... this just might be the place to do it. It's been a rough winter with Jess not doing very well and my health has been crap. I hear that laughter is the best medicine so I figured I could give it a try. Also, my mom just had a knee replacement last week and is doing a lot of physical therapy and exercises on her knee. The same goes for my funny bone: I need to exercise it and you guys need to help!

So bring it on!

Just remember this blog is rated G...
ok, you twisted my arm... rated PG. ;)
