I’m Mulling Something Over

The past few days I’ve had some thoughts about a certain topic bouncing around in my brain. I haven’t actually sat down and thought it all through yet, but when I do, I’ll be posting about it. I may be asking for some advice or thoughts. Right now, though, I’m too tired to write it all out so it’s cohesive.

I also wanted to thank each of you for the encouragement on my weight loss goal. Losing this extra poundage and toning up is going to make me feel so much better about myself. Every day that I let this go on, it just send me into a deep, dark hole. I don’t want to be in that hole (and actually, I’m just at the surface right now, so I’m alright…just don’t want to go any deeper). I don’t ever want to be where I was in 2003/2004 again. I just have to watch myself since I tend to slack off and then regret doing so. BUT now…I look forward to sharing this journey with you and I definitely look forward to looking sizzling in my dress!

One more thing…I feel like a little, bad, blogger since I’ve been slacking on my comments. I know I said this fairly recently, but I feel badly that I haven’t gotten back to so many of you. I will though. I promise.

So, while I slack some more and think through some things, read this joke. I laughed SO hard. It’s a keeper!

The pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise for answered prayers. A lady stood and walked to the podium. She said, “I have a Praise. Two months ago, my husband, Tom, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn’t know if they could help him.”

You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Tom must have experienced. “Tom was unable to hold me or the children,” she went on, and every move caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece together the crushed remnants of
Tom’s scrotum, and wrap wire around it to hold it in place.”

Again, the men in the congregation were unnerved and squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Tom. “Now,” she announced in a quavering voice, “thank the Lord, Tom is out of the hospital and the doctors say that with time, his scrotum should recover completely.”

All the men sighed with relief. The pastor rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say. A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium.

He said, “I’m Tom.” The entire congregation held its breath. “I just want to tell my wife that the word for what I broke is sternum.”

Awwwwww……..I typed in “little old lady” in Google and this picture came up:

That’s my Great Grandma!!! She died quite a few years ago; don’t remember when exactly.

    Funny joke!

  15. I just called my Dad, the King of corny jokes, to tell him yours. Too funny!

    I think your idea to focus on weight loss is a good one. So much of infertility feels like our bodies are out of our control. Taking charge of the things we CAN control helps make those we can’t feel less daunting.

    I was 50 lbs. overweight when I finally got pg with the twins. There is not a doubt in my mind that the reason they were born 11 weeks early is because my body could NOT maintain my excess weight AND the demands of their growing bodies. If I had been at a reasonable weight I really believe they would have stayed in longer. It’s been almost 9 years and they are fine but I still feel a little guilty about it.

  16. Hahahaha I LOVE that joke. Too funny. I’m sharing it with the King this evening!

  17. hilarious!!!

  18. that joke was fabulous. haha!

    And for what it’s worth, I’ve been a worse blogger. This week has been crazy and I haven’t been commenting as much as I should OR posting much. Boo…
