Funny Thing Happened

Funny story: the last several days I've had no energy. (No that's not the funny part). I don't drink coffee, try really hard not to drink soda, I don't drink anything with fake sugar or eat anything that will had extra calories. This limits me to where I can get a quick pick me up.
A week ago I decided to try caffeine pills. The bottle said it was equivalent to drinking a cup of coffee. I took one and although it worked it left me feeling a bit jittery so I decided not to take anymore...until yesterday. Yesterday I needed to get through a long day so I took a pill a little after ten in the morning. It did it's job, but I felt like it was wearing off so at four in the afternoon I took another one just to get me through the rest of the day.
 Wow! What can I say; I was buzzing like a bee in spring. I had more energy than I knew what to do with. The only problem was it didn't wear off until 3:30 am. It was awful. I can't even imagine how people drink more than a cup of coffee a day. My head was spinning, my heart was racing, and my mind was reeling. I couldn't turn it off. It really made me wonder if the pills were laced with amphetamines.
I worried that I would be dragging butt this morning, but surprisingly I'm doing okay. I have learned a very important lesson though, if I ever got into a fight with caffeine I'm positive caffeine would kick my trash.

Friday Funny!

This is going to be a very short blog entry, but I want you to really think about what I'm about to ask you.

Do you believe in miracles? 

Have a great weekend!

Friday Funny!

I don't know if you know this, but before I moved to Missouri we had a small farm in our backyard in Utah. We had turkeys, rabbits, ducks, and chickens. It all started with the chickens though. My brother and his wife raised backyard chickens and I thought it would be a fun thing to try. So my husband and I built a chicken coop, bought four chickens (one for each of our children at the time) and away we went.

For the first six months my kids had a great time caring for the chickens, watching the chickens, chasing the get the idea. It was good fun, but then the chickens started laying eggs. This was when the real fun began. For about a month only one of our chickens laid eggs. She would lay one very small egg every few days at first, but laid more regularly a few weeks after that. My kids would rush out and fight over who got to check for egg. Their fights got pretty heated at moments so we were grateful when all the hens started laying. It honestly was one of the highlights of the day to go check for eggs. It never got old for us.

I am sure all of you are wondering why I am going on and on about this. Well, besides the fact that I love being able to reminisce about my beloved backyard farm I wanted to explain to you why this Friday Funny is funny to me. As I watched this video I realized I wasn't the only one out there who was obsessed about my chickens eggs. How big they were or small, any irregularity was fascinating to me. I would take pictures and send them to my sister in law to compare the eggs we got to the one their hens were laying. (Yes, I know I entertain easily.)

This video made me smile because it bought back so many wonderful memories and I needed to smile after what happened yesterday. (I will cover what happened yesterday once the pain and horror isn't so fresh in my mind...all I can say is it changed my life.)  Okay, it didn't change my life, but it ruined my day and it still makes me sad to think about.

Anyway, pay close attention to the little girl's voice in the background she's funny.

Have a great weekend!

Friday Funny...but on Sunday

I'm one of those people that have half of a conversation in my head and then expect you to be able to jump right in when I start talking out loud. I do this with my husband all the time. It use to bug the crap out of him and I think it still does, but he's gotten better at just going with it.

This is what happened on Friday. I found my Friday Funny candidate and I logged into my account, but then I got busy doing something else. I had forgotten to post my Friday Funny, but the funny thing was I truly thought I had until my husband asked what happened and I logged in to find I hadn't. So please forgive me for being forgetful.

This weeks Friday Funny is a little hard to hear because of the wind, but just hand in there. I hope you all had a great weekend.

Friday Funny!

This has been a better week. Our little Mia is doing so much better. We missed our trip to Texas, but we will make it up someday. I have been able to write almost daily which has been fabulous. The only thing missing out of my pre-surgery routine is exercising and I plan to start that tomorrow. Hurray for me!

I had something else in mind for this weeks Friday Funny, but it involved my husband embarrassing himself on video. Believe me when I say it would have been hilarious. I tried to bribe him into doing it, but the man can't be bought. So instead here is someone else's husband being funny.

Hope you have a great weekend!
