Are women born this way?

Thanks to my friend, Sarah, for sharing!

To make up for yesterday's terribly chauvinistic post

I thought these "words to live by" would do the trick!

If you missed yesterday's post, click here.

  1. When life gets you down - just put on your big girl panties and deal with it.
  2. Let your greatest fear be that there is no PMS and this is just your personality. 
  3. I know I'm in my own little world, but it's ok. They know me here.
  4. Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself. 
  5. Don't get your knickers in a knot; it solves nothing and makes you walk funny.
  6. Keep your chin up, only the first 40 years of parenthood are hard.
  7. If it has tires or testicles, it's gonna give you trouble.
  8. By the time a woman realizes her mother was right, she has a daughter who thinks she's wrong.

Just another stupid beer commercial.

Because even I find ridiculous and chauvinistic beer advertising funny.

The Woz Worm

Matt and I have watched Dancing With the Stars on-and-off all season. In fact, as I type this, I don't even know who won last night. We usually turned it on for mindless entertainment if there was nothing else to watch.

Last night was one of those nights. It just so happens that we caught Steve Wozinak's dance followed by his infamous "worm." I cannot tell you how hard I laughed when I saw this. No joke, I was snorting, peeing, and struggling to breathe (simultaneously) when I saw him attempt the worm. I don't think I have seen anything so funny in all my life.

Bless his heart.

And if you just want to see the worm and not the rest of the dance, fast-forward to minute 2:15.

Letters to God

A friend shared this link with me.

I tried to pick a favorite, but there are simply too many that make me smile and laugh out loud.

Jane's is not so much funny as it is sweet:

Dear God,
Instead of letting people die and having to make new ones, Why don't you just keep the ones you got now?

She's got a point there.

Old is Old, Not Dumb!

In honor of the two "older" folks who recently won Biggest Loser, I thought I'd share this email forward with you all.

A strong young man at a construction site was bragging that he could out-do anyone in a feat of strength. He made a special effort of making fun of the older workmen. 

After a while, an older worker had enough. "Why don't you put your money where your mouth is," he said. "I'll bet a week's wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that building that you won't be able to wheel back."

"You're on, old man." the braggart replied. "Let's see you do it".

The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles.

Then, nodding to the young man, he said, "All right, get in."

Mom's - You deserve it!

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
- Sophia Loren

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.
- Rajneesh

All mothers are working mothers.
- Unknown

God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.
- Jewish Proverb

A man’s work is from sun to sun, but a mother’s work is never done.
- Unknown

There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it.
- Chinese Proverb

Happy Mother's Day

The Mom Test

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 on the ground, you don't know where it's been, it's dirty, and it probably has germs all over it,' I replied.

At this point, my daughter looked at me in total admiration and asked, 'Momma, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.'

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

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, and it was evident that she was pondering this new information.

'Oh, I get it!' she finally beamed, 'So if you don't pass the test you have to be the Dad.'

'Exacty', I replied back with a big smile on my face.

Another groundhog bites the dust.

My husband and I get such a kick out of this commercial.

White boy can dance!

I think I'm back.

But don't hold your breath. 

My dear sister is suffering the real flu, as in Influenza A. She's poppin' Tamiflu and Ibuprofen like nobody's business. And considering I spent the entire weekend with her, it might only be a matter of time before I'm sick, for real.

So as I jump back on the alidotes caboose, I think the trick will be to let go of my perfectionist tendencies. I'm an all or nothin' kind of gal. And if I can't post two times daily, at 6am and 2pm precisely, than my heartbeat begins to thump harder, faster, stronger, and the anxiety sets it.

So in an effort to be less of a blog freak, I'm simply going to blog when I feel like it (That's sort of a lie. I'll let my ridiculous tendencies flourish over at Blessed Treeshouse).

And what's a better way to make a come back than by posting a political-ish picture and caption that will surely make a few of you roll your eyes and possibly stop following me? 

Now this is more like it. Stirrin' the pot. It's what I love!

(My lovely father forwarded this to me, and I just had to blog it.)
