I Might As Well Give Up Sleeping! Lucy Episode…Oh, I Have Lost Count!

Humor

I stay up normally until about 1:30-2:30 a.m..  This is when I work on “Verse of the day” and the daily devotional.  I want it to be up and fresh for my early bird readers.  I have gotten used to this sleep schedule and when I first started it my plan was to stay up late and sleep late.  It just does not work out!!  I NEVER, for one reason or another, get to sleep late and it usually centers around Gracie!

Gracie has become a yapper!!   It can be during my prayer time, blog time, sleeping late time, basically any time!  There will be such quiet and stillness.  I can hear the doves cooing in my yard.  All is quiet and serene…then suddenly you would think the devil himself was after her!  Howling, barking, growling pierces the peace and calm!  I jump almost out of my skin, my heart begins to beat like a lion is chasing me, and I am aggravated to no end!!!! 

With that being said, I love Gracie!!  I have tried everything!  Obedience school, rewards, extra exercise…NOTHING works!!  But for all of her faults, I love her and love covers a multitude of sins, or faults in this case!

This morning I woke up for what I thought would be a brief time.  I do that.  I will wake up, but within five minutes I am asleep again.  Hubby always gets up for work, takes Gracie out of the bed to let her potty, and then she waits for me on the couch or by the glass door until I am up for the day. 

I stretched my legs across the bed to “sprawl out”  a little bit and my leg hits something.  It was Gracie.  She must have been too sleepy to get up this morning.  I decide to cuddle with her because it always relaxes me and I go to sleep faster!  I call out in my “baby coddling” voice, “Gwacieee…come to Mommie…come on, sweet baby.”  She didn’t move.  I push my leg against her again because, since she is a  cuddlebug,  if I touch her she instantly comes to cuddle with me.  I barely felt the slightest movement.  “Something is terribly wrong!” I thought.  She had to be sick!  Maybe even deathly sick!  I bolt upright, I lean over the small mound and I gently begin to rub her back.  “Gracie, are you okay??  Come cuddle with Mommie!  Come to Mommie, Gracie!!”  I was getting more frantic with each cajole!!

I decided to face whatever truth was laying beneath those covers while hubby was still home!  If it was bad I would need him!  I threw back the comforter, then I threw back the blanket.  Finally,  all I had left was the sheet.  I notice a deformity!  Oh, sweet goodness, it was MUCH WORSE THAN I THOUGHT!!!  I frantically threw back the sheet!  Suddenly, I blinked and blinked hard.  Under the sheet was the piece of foam my husband puts between his knees so his back doesn’t hurt while he sleeps!  Usually he will put it under his pillow to be used the next night!  Don’t ask me why he didn’t do it today! 

I felt relief and panic mingled all together.  I fell back against my pillows, thanking God it wasn’t my beloved Gracie!!  There was NO sleeping at that point!  I came to the living room and there she was, my honey colored baby, curled in a ball, sleeping peacefully and healthy!  Well, at least one of us isn’t tired!  :(


HUMOR-Laughter Does a Body Good…The Photographer

HUMOR

The photographer for a national magazine was assigned to get photos of a great forest fire. Smoke at the scene was too thick to get any good shots, so he frantically called his home office to hire a plane. “It will be waiting for you at the airport!” he was assured by his editor. As soon as he got to the small, rural airport, sure enough, a plane was warming up near the runway. He jumped in with his equipment and yelled, “Let’s go! Let’s go!” The pilot swung the plane into the wind and soon they were in the air. “Fly over the north side of the fire,” said the photographer, “and make three or four low level passes.” “Why?” asked the pilot. “Because I’m going to take pictures! I’m a photographer, and photographers take pictures!” said the photographer with great exasperation. After a long pause the pilot said, “You mean you’re not the instructor?”

Humor-Laughter Does a Body Good…Can You Guess What It Is??

Humor-Laughter Does a Body Good!

Y’all will just have to forgive this one…this is what happens when you let your husband choose the joke!  :)
It was the end of the school year, and a kindergarten teacher was receiving gifts from her pupils. The florist’s son handed her a gift. She shook it, held it overhead, and said, “I bet I know what it is. Flowers.” “That’s right!” the boy said, “But, how did you know?” “Oh, just a wild guess,” she said. The next pupil was the sweet shop owner’s daughter. The teacher held her gift overhead, shook it, and said, “I bet I can guess what it is. A box of sweets.” “That’s right, but how did you know?” asked the girl. “Oh, just a wild guess,” said the teacher. The next gift was from the son of the liquor store owner. The teacher held he package overhead, but it was leaking. She touched a drop off the leakage with her finger and put it to her tongue. “Is it wine?” she asked. “No,” the boy replied, with some excitement. The teacher repeated the process, tasting a larger drop of the leakage. “Is it champagne?” she asked. “No,” the boy replied, with more excitement. The teacher took one more big taste before declaring, “I give up, what is it?” With great glee, the boy replied, “It’s a puppy!” SURPRISE!

A preacher was walking down the street when he notices a little boy trying to ring the doorbell but it’s just out of his reach. He watches his efforts for some time and walks over to press the bell. After he pressed it he leveled down to the boy and asked’ “Now what?” to which the boy turned and shouted, “NOW WE RUN!!”

Laughter Does A Body Good…Old Goat!

Laughter Does a Body Good

Two men were walking through the woods and came upon a big black, deep hole. One man picked up a rock and tossed it into the hole and stood listening for the rock to hit bottom. There was no sound. He turned to the other guy and said “that must be a deep hole…let’s throw a bigger rock in there and listen for it to hit bottom.” The men found a bigger rock and both picked it up and lugged it to the hole and dropped it in. They listened for some time and never heard a sound. Again, they agreed that this must be one deep hole and maybe they should throw something even bigger into it. One man spotted a rail-road tie nearby. They picked up the tie, grunting and groaning, and lugged it to the hole. They tossed it in. No sound. All of a sudden, a goat came flying out of the woods, running like the wind, and flew past the men and jumped straight into the hole. The men were amazed. About that time, an old hayseed farmer came out of the woods and asked the men if they had seen a goat. One man told the farmer of the incredible incident they had just witnessed…they had just seen this goat fly out of the woods and run and leap into the big hole. The man asked the farmer if this could have been his goat. The old farmer said “naw, that can’t be my goat…he was chained to a railroad tie.”
