It's been a crazy morning -- several SVT episodes at work, digestive trouble, and the kittens are relentless at home.

Every time I try to stop to eat, the kittens are climbing me, and I have to feed them instead.

Next time they quit eating, I'm going to take my headachey self to bed for an hour.

Dinner tonight will be two choices -- take it or leave it.

In honor of national humor month:

Q: How many women with MENOPAUSE does it take to change a light Bulb?

Woman’s Answer:


One! ONLY ONE!!!!

And do you know WHY?

Because no one else in this House knows HOW to change a light bulb! They Don’t even know that the bulb is BURNED OUT!! They would sit in the dark for THREE DAYS before they figured it out.

And, once they figured it out, they wouldn’t be able to find the #&%!* light bulbs despite the fact that they’ve been in the SAME CABINET for the past 17 YEARS!

But if they did, by some miracle of God, actually find them, 2 DAYS LATER, the chair they dragged to stand on to change the STUPID light bulb would still be in the same spot! And underneath it would be the wrapper the freaking light bulb came in because NO ONE EVER PICKS UP OR CARRIES OUT THE GARBAGE!!!!!!

IT’S A WONDER WE HAVEN’T ALL SUFFOCATED

FROM THE PILES OF GARBAGE THAT ARE A FOOT DEEP

THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE HOUSE!!!!! IT WOULD TAKE

AN ARMY TO CLEAN THIS PLACE!!!!!!

AND DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON

WHO CHANGES THE TOILET PAPER ROLL!!


I’m sorry. What was the question?
