Birthday Bowling Break!

This weekend I took a little break on Saturday from the studying to go out for my birthday. My birthday is not until next weekend but I will need the whole weekend to study for my exam on Monday March 30. So we thought a break on Saturday for some fun would be a good idea. I had a wonderful evening with lots of fun, friends and laughter. We started the evening with some bowling and then headed home for a game of Cran*ium and a few snacks & beverages. Lisa & Jeff spent the night at our house so we finished off the evening with some games of w*ii … and finally caught some shuteye around 4pm!!

I had a wonderful evening and love all the thoughtful gifts from my friends. Thanks so much to all of you!! xoxox

PARENT - Job Description

~ A friend sent this to me and I thought it was cute enough to share. ~


Mom, Mommy, Mama, Ma
Dad, Daddy, Dada, Pa, Pop


Long term, team players needed, for challenging,
permanent work in an often chaotic environment.
Candidates must possess excellent communication
and organizational skills and be willing to work
variable hours, which will include evenings and weekends
and frequent 24 hour shifts on call.
Some overnight travel required,
including trips to primitive camping sites on rainy weekends
and endless sports tournaments in far away cities!
Travel expenses not reimbursed.
Extensive courier duties also required.


The rest of your life.
Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily,
until someone needs $5.
Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly.
Also, must possess the physical stamina
of a pack mule and be able to go from zero
to 60 mph in three seconds flat in case,
this time, the screams from the backyard
are not someone just crying wolf.
Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges,
such as small gadget repair, mysterious ugly sluggish toilets
and stuck zippers.
Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and
coordinate production of multiple homework projects.
Must have ability to plan and organize social gatherings
for clients of all ages and mental outlooks.
Must be a willing to be indispensable one minute, an embarrassment the next.
Must handle assembly and product safety testing of a
half million cheap, plastic toys, and battery operated devices.
Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.
Must assume final, complete accountability for the quality of the end product.
Responsibilities also include floor maintenance
and janitorial work throughout the facility.


Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills,
so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you


None required unfortunately.
On-the-job training offered on a continually
exhausting basis.


Get this! You pay them!
Offering frequent raises and bonuses.
A balloon payment i s due when they turn 18 because
of the assumption that college will help them
become financially independent.
When you die, you give them whatever is left.
The oddest thing about this reverse-salary scheme is that
you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more.


While no health or dental insurance, no pension,
no tuition reimbursement, no paid holidays and
no stock options are offered;
this job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growth,
unconditional love, and free hugs and kisses for life ...
if you play your cards right.


Larry & I sent our “resume's” in over 2 years ago … we can’t wait to get the call & be accepted for these positions!!!
