Tuesday Check-In #4

Well, TOM'S visiting this week and that's always a cause for a bit of anxiety. I'm glad to say that it's only an increase of 1 pound rather than the usual 3-5. WHEW!! I need to visit the gym more this week. My 2 shovelling sessions of last week really hurt me so one more time--I'm ready for Spring!!!

Here's a cute joke for today. Enjoy!

Rick was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really angry. She told him 'Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in less than 6 seconds, AND IT BETTER BE THERE!!' The next morning Rick got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway. Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, and brought the box back in the house. She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale. Rick has been missing since Friday. Please pray for him.

OMGOSH that is to funny! I mean not that he forgot your anniversary ( or that he did get you something but it was a scale *bad hubby*) but how you wrote it. I had to just laugh. It so sounds like something my husband would do. I guess we will see as our anniversary is coming up LOLOL.

I hope you have a SUPER wonderful day. And that maybe just maybe you get that vrooooom vroom in your driveway!

HATE those TOMs... they are just the WORST. On the other hand, you'll probably have a good loss next week.

shoveling snow burns a LOT of calories.

Manuela said...

Felicia, you're too funny!

That's not a true story (at least not mine). It was one of those great email jokes that gets forwarded to EVERYBODY!!! What man would be that brave???

And Lynn, there better be a loss!! I need to get back to the gym--luckily nothing to shovel yet.

Holly said...

Haha that's hilarious!! I hope you have a great week!

Sorry about the TOM. DRINK WATER to fight the bloat. I know right now booze probably sounds better, but your body needs the water. ;-)

Great joke!

Grumpy Chair said...

Great joke! When I only gain 1 pound during TOM - will probably be my first "happy period."

Bessie said...

best of luck with TOM and hitting the gym! You can do it!

Cammy said...

Cute joke!

Glad the TOM wasn't too cruel!

Heather said...

TOM just left me so I feel your pain! 1 pounds not bad at all, and you know its mostly water weight.

sybil said...

Too funny! I love starting my morning with a laugh.

Bev said...

I've heard that joke and thought it was hilarious! ; )

1 pound ain't bad for TOM! Hope you are having a great week!

Simone said...

Thanks for the laugh

Carol said...

That's funny Manuala. hahha :)

Sorry to post this here but I couldn't find an email addy for your nor could I find you searching blog catalogue but I was wondering if you knew if Katschi was alright? She hasn't posted in a couple of days (which is odd) and I thought maybe you knew something.


Manuela said...

Hey Carol,

Strange about the email because I've had others contact me. I hope I'm not stepping out of line but Katschi is pretty open about her health.

I believe she began her radiation treatment this week and may still be in hospital. I think it will take a few days but hopefully she'll be home soon. I don't think she can have access to her laptop.

I'm sure she'll be back and get in touch with everyone and I'll also say that she'd appreciate all positive thoughts her way.

Thanks for the info.

It's not that the email didn't work, it's because I don't have your email address period. :) (maybe I missed it somewhere)

I already sent her an email (yes I actually have her email addy) :) so I'll wait to hear from her.

Talk later,
