Celebrating Women for the Real World

Tickle Tuesday…..and other stuff.

Have a a good laugh with this one – laughter is something we all need.

When I’m an old lady, I’ll live with each kid,
And bring so much happiness…just as they did.
I want to pay back all the joy they’ve provided.
Returning each deed! Oh, they’ll be so excited!
(When I’m an old lady and live with my kids)
I’ll write on the wall with reds, whites and blues,
And I’ll bounce on the furniture…wearing my shoes.
I’ll drink from the carton and then leave it out.
I’ll stuff all the toilets and oh, how they’ll shout!
(When I’m an old lady and live with my kids)
When they’re on the phone and just out of reach,
I’ll get into things like sugar and bleach.
Oh, they’ll snap their fingers and then shake their head,
(When I’m an old lady and live with my kids)
When they cook dinner and call me! to eat,
I’ll not eat my green beans or salad or meat,
I’ll gag on my okra, spill milk on the table,
And when they get angry…I’ll run…if I’m able!
(When I’m an old lady and live with my kids)
I’ll sit close to the TV, through the channels I’ll click,
I’ll cross both eyes just to see if they stick.
I’ll take off my socks and throw one away,
And play in the mud ’til the end of the day!
(When I’m an old lady and live with my kids)
And later in bed, I’ll lay back and sigh,
I’ll thank God in prayer and then close my eyes.
My kids will look down with a smile slowly creeping,
And say with a groan, “She’s so sweet when she’s sleeping!”

See, you laughed, you smiled…I know you did

The Other Stuff:
It is back to work tomorrow and I’m not ready. I have been saying that I wanted to get the courtyard finished before I go back but I don’t think that is going to happen. Yesterday was hot as hell and what idiotic thing do you think I was doing? Painting the damn courtyard…you read right…outside in the f-ing heat from 9 – 3 painting (just commit me now will ya?). I mean really that had to be worth at least 2-4 pounds don’t you think?
Today I shall attempt to dig up the beds, replace with good soil and maybe get something planted. I was hoping to post pictures tomorrow of a new and completed courtyard but at least I’ll finish it up over the weekend.
Sheri is going nuts getting settled into the new house. She’ll get there, but like me she wants it all done yesterday. If she doesn’t post it soon, I’ll be marching over there and take pictures of the pool…it is awsome!
That is all for now, I have to go dig in some dirt.

    Oooo, I can’t wait to get old and torture, um, live with my kids! Payback!! Yes, I’m getting settled. I promise I’ll take some pics. I’ve found the camera-not the charger which I need to download the pics. I took off today, the last day of summer, to get some stuff done. I’m totally enjoying the quiet morning (all kids taking advantage of sleeping in for the last time).

    Off to do shopping (we have no food)!

    I think it’s more like 4-6 pounds. You sweated at least 4 pounds and then the 2 for the work. Wow…I can’t believe you are out there doing that. But then again if you waited for it to cool off that might be December!

    hey SuZ, don’t forget to let me know when you’d like some of the plants I’ve got…

    I’ve a few mexican heather (nice sized plants) and more aloe. Speaking of aloe, I hope you were wearing sunscreen?
