friday funnies


The other night  my heart was fluttering because I ate  a gorgeous piece of coconut pie right before bed. After a few hours, I woke Seth to pray for my heart, and this is what he said: “Dear Lord, please heal Amber, and be with her as she travels, and help her to clean up this city! In Jesus Name, Amen.”
What?! Nevermind, Seth.
This is the email that Seth just sent me. I’m away at Blissdom (and I’ll tell you about that later). 
 Iam looking forward to the quiet time I’m going to have in 2012.
So after going to bed at mid-night, Ian woke up at 3:15.  Why?  I have no idea.  He was screaming bloody murder and when I went in there he smiled and said “Isaac, Daddy, Momma, Isaac, Daddy, Momma, JUICE.”  So I got him juice. He went to sleep.
Jude woke up at his regular time of 5:15 and promptly became “Petah” and waged a war against all of the Tellmarines in our bed.  I think he’s still fighting the war at the present time, although there seems to be a bit of a lull in the action.  Sometimes I wish Aslan would show up and end this war forever.
Isaac woke up and whispered sweetly “Daddy, I want some chocolate milk.”  I said “hold on just a second.”  MELT DOWN.
I am sitting here contemplating reading my bible sometime in 2012.  It feels good.
I love you and hope you have so much fun.

For the back story, we had an ice storm that demolished the city. I have been spending a considerable amount of time and energy trying to organize a clean up effort. Before bed that night, I took NyQuil because I was feeling a bit under the weather. Amber woke me up from a NQ induced coma and asked me to pray. I have absolutely no recollection of anything I said.

Awkward? Yes. But maybe Amber needs to take it as a sign and get to work. Is cleaning up an entire city really too much to ask?

My life is such a dud at the moment. Nothing funny. Or worthy of Friday Funnies, at least.

I have mitral valve prolapse and frequently wake up in the middle of the night, heart backflipping out of my chest. I should try waking my man up next time and see what kind of prayer he comes up with. :)

Hope you have a great time at Blissdom!

This one isn't funny haha as much as it is "hmm, that's odd". But if you like Anne Shirley, then maybe it will make you smile at the end.

Oops, I should clarify that I was talking about my post not being "funny haha" in the above comment, not yours, Amber! Your post is indeed funny, especially now that we understand Seth was drugged at the time of the incident.

Today one my patients said this:
kid: "So my mom was going to give me up for adoption. And i'm glad she didn't because i would have been adopted by a Jewish Family."
Baker: "how do you know that?
Kid: "There was a Jewish family that said they wanted me."
Baker: "what would have been wrong with that?"
kid: "Well nothing, other than do you know what they do?"
Baker: "What do they do?"
kid: "On your birthday, i hear they cut off your dingaling."

Immediately my mind shot into oblivion with thoughts bombarding my skull, like how have jewish people survived and procreated for thousands of years with no dingalings. I did not bother the small boy with all of that.

Needless to say we were able to clear up a bit, he learned a new word.."circumcision", and i got to explain differences in Jewish beliefs about Jesus vs. traditional Christian beliefs.
I don't know if he cared about that, but he doesn't have to wince and sweat around Jewish people in the future.

lives are changing here...

India: but they're some things i have to learn first.

India: (with her face all screwed up) like how to eat child babies. gross.

Here's my funny story (your story reminded me of this one).
[One piece of info- My husband was deployed to Iraq from Oct 2005-Oct 2006.]
Here's the story (I posted on my blog in January 2007)
This past weekend, I got away for a night with some girls. There was a MOPS planning retreat on Saturday so a few of us had a slumber party on Friday night. I left my house around 7:30 p.m. on Friday and returned home about 4:30 p.m. on Saturday night. Seth had a great time with the boys. They put up a tent in the living room and 'camped in.' I had a wonderful time with the girls. I enjoyed lots of adult conversation, no wrestling or loud children. I got home in time for dinner. (The dinner was cooked, the dishes were mostly done, and I was spoiled.) I also got home during the late afternoon chaotic time for the boys. They were loud, full of afternoon energy, and quite a bit demanding.

Jane Anne: "Wow, it is hard to transition back into this house of craziness after being away for a night."
Seth: " should try it after a year away."
Jane Anne: "OKAY! Just tell me when!!"

This was followed by a lot of laughter.

Due to a horrible week I can not think of anything funny that happened other then someone sending me an Ellen You Tube that is the most hysterical thing I've ever heard so I hope you stop by and see it.

Haha. Once my husband told me in the middle of the night that "The City Official was here". I said "What!" and he repeated. Then I kept saying what just to hear him say it again. "He finally sat up and said "What part of 'the city official is here' don't you understand?" He then woke up and realized he was talking in his sleep and we both busted out laughing.

Wishing, so badly, that I was joining you all at Blissdom this weekend. Have fun. I'm with you in spirit!

No funnies over at my blog today but I do have a great giveaway over at my blog for a beautiful handmade tutu, if you have any little princesses in your life.
