Funny e-mail I got--

Monday, November 21, 2011

Here's an item that was voted "Woman's Favorite Email of the Year"...


A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife
stayed home. He wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed:

"Dear Lord: I go to work every day and put in 8 hours while my wife
stays at home. I want her to know what I go through, so please allow
me to switch bodies with her for a day. Amen."

God, in His infinite wisdom, granted the man's wish.

The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke with the body of his
wife. He arose, cooked breakfast for his mate, awakened the kids, set
out their school clothes, fed them breakfast, packed their lunches,
drove them to school, came home and picked up the dry cleaning, took
it to the cleaners, stopped at the bank to make a deposit, went
grocery shopping, drove home to put away the groceries, paid the bills
and balanced the checkbook. He next cleaned the cat's litter box and
bathed the dog. Noting that it was already 1 p.m., he hurried to make
the beds, do the laundry, vacuum, dust, sweep and mop the kitchen
floor. He then drove to school, picked up the kids and brought them
home. After giving them some milk and cookies, he got the children
organized and started them on their homework. He then set up the
ironing board and watched some TV while doing the ironing. At 4:30 he
began peeling some potatoes, washing vegetables for a salad, breaded
the pork chops and shucked the corn-on-the-cob for supper.

After dinner, he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded the
laundry, bathed the kids, and put them to bed.

At 9 p.m., even though he was exhausted and his daily chores weren't
fully completed, he went to bed, where he was expected to make love,
which he managed to get through without complaint.

H awoke the following morning and immediately knelt by the bed to
pray: "Lord, I don't know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy
my wife's being able to stay home all day. Please, oh please, switch
our bodies back."

The Lord, again in His infinite wisdom, replied: "My son, I feel you
have learned your lesson and I will be happy to change things back to
the way they were. But you will have to wait nine months because you
got pregnant last night."

    Tracy - although my kids are now grown 'n' gone, if you added '...and went to work at the office for six hours' and shifted the time schedule a little, it could've been ME, lol...

I'm sending this to every woman (and a few men) I know!

    Not many families like this anymore though, it sounds more like the 50's..my husband was as apt to fix supper as me and he was a very involved dad. He had no problem with housework either. I would have loved to stay home though.

Funny Football joke my dad sent me

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Football and the Blonde

Of all the blonde jokes, this one has to be the best -- because it makes football make sense!

A guy took his blonde girlfriend to her first football game.
They had great seats right behind their team's bench.
After the game, he asked her how she liked it.
"Oh, I really liked it," she replied, "especially the tight pants
and all the big muscles, but I just couldn't understand why they
were killing each other over 25 cents."

Dumbfounded, her boyfriend asked, "What do you mean?"

"Well, they flipped a coin, one team got it and then for the rest of the game,
all they kept screaming was... 'Get the quarterback! Get the quarterback!'

I'm like...Helloooooo?


It's only 25 cents!!!!"

Making a list and checking it twice..

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

No not my Christmas list but my Thanksgiving list.. We are making the menu then making our shopping list-- this week sweet potatoes are on sale $2.49 for a 5 pound box so we intend on getting there twice so we can get two boxes since you can only get one. We are having ham and turkey, sweet potatoes some way, macaroni and cheese, stuffing(vegetarian though), cornbread "pudding",brussels sprouts some way, cauliflower, and some other veg dish..Of course appetizers too-- spanokopita, cheese and crackers, mexican dip and chips and maybe artichoke dip as well.. Probably about 15-20 of us-- we do it the Saturday after thanksgiving since we both work on Thanksgiving.. Desserts, drinks and snacks are the guests job, lol. I try to eat a good breakfast that day so I stay in control at dinner.

So-- I know the next big bill will be...

Monday, November 14, 2011

The washing machine--- I know I have said in the past it is leaking oil a little and the repair guy said that the transmission is going... so my daughter for 2 loads in a row had it uneven and it was doing the big wobble dance-- which is what broke our first one-- she snapped something inside form letting that happen too many times--of course I yelled for her and told her to fix it and she of course said-- WELL I DID NOT DO IT ON PURPOSE!! grrrrrrrrrrrrrr Well if she had unfolded the blanket that she put in there maybe it would not have done it... ya know~

(This is not me but maybe one day)

    Ha Ha, aren't kids just FULL OF IT? though. Yah, well, it wouldn't make many trips to the laundry to use the cost of fixing your machine. I don't have a machine, and I spent ten dollars today doing laundry! It's getting really expensive! Best of luck with that. Hugs, B
