Default ***Misfit Monday (1-23-12)***

Happy Monday!!

We had another wonderful weekend! I'm loving having Brandon home with us. Someone asked me the other day if the newness of him being home all the time now has worn off yet - it hasn't!!! We had a very productive 2 days - we finally hung the new shelf in our entry way, sorted through a bunch of stuff, did a lot of little things around the house, went shopping and watched a movie. We ended up tearing down our fence in back that partially blew down last week. Another panel came off in the wind we had on Saturday. We talked to the neighbor behind us and decided it would be best just to pull it all down. The posts weren't even cemented in!!! We're not sure which property line the fence is on, but she's willing to split the cost of getting a new fence with us. She offered to get some estimates and then we'll go from there. Good thing neither of us have a dog!

We went to a birthday party yesterday for Preston's 1 yr old buddy from across the street. It was at a place called 'The Little Gym' and Preston had a BLAST running around! He was running circles around all the other kids. One of the employees commented several times on his energy.

Enjoy the start to the new week!!

Jennifer - I never get tired of having Bill around! Even if we aren't doing something together, just having him here is a HUGE plus!

Julie's first class was cancelled this morning. I think this professor/teacher comes from quite a distance and we had some areas of icy conditions. It is a dreary rainy day today, but a ltitle warmer.

I hope to stamp today!

My last day off. I am going to the dr this afternoon. I hurt my hand at work on Wednesday. It still hurts. I think it is too late to turn it on to workman's comp/ So I am just going to tell the dr I hurt it!
We had freezing rain yesterday and today it is snowing.

Oh, and the excitement for yesterday was we set off the smoke alarm

We were getting ready for the party and Brandon had just taken a shower. We had all the other doors upstairs closed so Preston wouldn't get into stuff. The only thing we can think of is that the steam from the shower set it off once we opened the bathroom door. Does that happen? It was scary and loud and I don't want it to happen again.

At least it wasn't anything serious.

Joan, so sorry you hurt your hand. Would suggest strongly that you tell the doctor the truth about hurting yourself at work. Workman's comp or not, you will be saving yourself any additional trouble down the road.

Thought this was a funny chuckle...


Irish Taxi Driver

A British passenger in a taxi in Dublin leaned over to ask
the driver a question and tapped him on the shoulder. The
driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus,
drove up over the curb, and stopped just inches from the
edge of the bridge over the Liffey River.

For a few moments everything was silent in the cab, and then
the still-shaking driver said, "I'm sorry, but you scared
the devil out of me."

The frightened Brit apologized to the driver and said he
didn't realize a mere tap on the shoulder could frighten an
Irishman so much.

The driver replied, "Will the saints in Heaven forgive me --
it's entirely my fault. Today is my first day driving a cab.
I've been driving a hearse for the last 25 years.

Joan, please check into workmans comp first. I would hate to have you pay for something that you shouldn't have to.

Good Morning, I woke up to snow/rain mix, I was expecting it tho and picked out my clothes for work last night and got out the door early this morning.

Of course my day went downhill once I got to work. One of my co-workers has been in such a bad mood for weeks that her negative attitude is really starting to wear thin. We can't even joke around with out her correcting us and sucking the fun out of everything

Jen, Sorry you are all still sick at your house. It must be all over the place I'm finally feeling better, even though I didn't get to sleep until around 4am this morning. It was more my back hurting. My daughter and two boys are pretty sick, but the baby is finally much better.

Karen, I'm sorry there's more drama at your workpace!!! It makes for very long days!!!

Joan, sorry your hand is hurting. I agree to tell them you hurt it at work. Did you tell anyone, or did anyone see you hurt it back then?

Heather, sorry you are having a bad time at work right now. Not fun working conditions!!!

Jennifer. sounds like you and Brandon were heating up the bathroom a little too much to set the fire alarms off!!!

You are better off not understanding it. I finally spent Sunday with it, and built my boards, and then, of course, I had to start looking around to start filling them. You can look forever!!! So many cool stuff!!! But before you know, you have spent the whole day on there!!!

Chuckle for the day...

Cute Baby

When we brought our new-born son to the pediatrician for his
first checkup, the doctor said, "You have a cute baby."

Smiling, I said, "I'll bet you say that to all the new
parents."

"No," he replied, "just to those whose babies are really
good-looking."

"So what do you say to the others?" I asked.

"He looks just like you."

I made it a goal to go through our drawers and cabinets and clean them out and get rid of stuff we don't need. So far I've done our junk drawer in the kitchen, our spice cabinet and our medicine cabinet. I've found things I forgot I had! It's pretty fun

My neighbor had a tall cat tower next to the street yesterday (this couple is our age but we've hardly ever talked to each other). I saw him come home so I ran over and asked him about it. Their cat is too old to climb it anymore so he was just getting rid of it! He was hoping someone would take it before the trash truck came! He even carried it over for me. It is FILTHY!!! It's 4 levels high and I got a whole bucket full of cat fur off of it. I'm going to use our steamer on it and hopefully that will get it really clean. I have it in the garage because I don't want to bring it in the house until it's clean. I hope our kitties love it! We've wanted to get one for years, but they are pricey! This one is in perfect shape and matches our living room. SCORE!!!!!!!

I was wondering about Dunkin, too. I know she had issues with her computer, but I miss her too!!! Hope she can get back soon!

Jennifer - hope the cats like their present. My mom's cats never used the one they had.

Hedgie - thinking of you today.

It is a sunny day! Winds are supposed to kick up but so far it isn't bad.

Most of you are too young to know some of these big bands sounds but so love them and the dancing!

These have been around but they are still funny...


Q: Should I have a baby after 35?
A: No, 35 children is enough.

Q : I'm two months pregnant now. When will my baby move?
A: With any luck, right after he finishes college.

Q : What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's sex?
A: Childbirth.

Q: My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational.
A: So what's your question?

Q: My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I'll feel during labor, but pressure. Is she right?
A: Yes, in the same way that a tornado might be called an air current.

Q: When is the best time to get an epidural?
A: Right after you find out you're pregnant.

Q: Is there any reason I have to be in the delivery room while my wife is in labor?
A: Not unless the word "alimony" means anything to you.

Q: Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth?
A: Yes, pregnancy.

Q: Do I have to have a baby shower?
A: Not if you change the baby's diaper very quickly.

Q: Our baby was born last week. When will my wife begin to feel and act normal again?
A: When the kids are in college.

So true...

TOP TEN THINGS ONLY WOMEN UNDERSTAND
10. Cats' facial expressions.
9. The need for the same style of shoes in different colors.
8. Why bean sprouts aren't just weeds.
7. Fat clothes.
6. Taking a car trip without trying to beat your best time.
5. The difference between beige, ecru, cream, off-white, and eggshell.
4. Cutting your hair to make it grow.
3. Eyelash curlers.
2. The inaccuracy of every bathroom scale ever made.

AND, the Number One thing only women understand:

1. OTHER WOMEN

Jennifer- my son has one! the cats don't use it a lot. However, their daughter loves it. I have to watch DGD. She'll climb up very quick!
Sure wish everyone would be feeling better!

It has been a truly beautiful sunny warm day here!!! So far, we have had a very mild winter and am so grateful!!

Feel truly sorry for those people in Alabama, goodness they got hit hard once again.

Me too!

Thank goodness for Afrin, I got some sleep last night! The kids at school were really chatty and just weird today. I got home and saw an article that we're having solar flares. We "may" be able to see the northern lights tonight, but it looks pretty cloudy to me.
