Weekly Update! {Filling the BIG ORANGE TUB}

I just came back from a four day weekend and we were so busy! We took our boy to a prescreening of Wreck It, Ralph (loved it! review coming soon!) and we visited my Granny (Granny Great) and my Aunt Linda (Great Aunt Winna) and we did so many fun things on Thursday and Friday that we decided that Saturday and Sunday would be all about OTHERS! We visited The Sanctuary House on Saturday for a large Rummage Sale to help raise money and keep them open. We learned on Sunday at church that they raised over $2200 on Saturday!!

Also, speaking of Sunday…we have an updated picture of our BIG ORANGE TUB of hygiene products for kids. It is really filling up faster now!!

    Weight Loss Program

    A guy calls a company and orders their 5-day, 5kg weight loss program.

    The next day, there’s a knock on the door and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 19 year old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign around her neck..

    She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, “If you can catch me, you can have me.”

    Without a second thought, he takes off after her. A few miles later puffing and puffing, he finally gives up. The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing happens. On the fifth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 5kg as promised.

    He calls the company and orders their 5-day/10kg program. The next day there’s a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life. She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads, “If you catch me you can have me”.

    Well, he’s out the door after her like a shot. This girl is in excellent shape and he does his best, but no such luck. So for the next four days, the same routine happens with him gradually getting in better and better shape.

    Much to his delight on the fifth day when he weighs himself, he discovers that he has lost another 10kg as promised. He decides to go for broke and calls the company to order the 7-day/25kg program.

    “Are you sure?” asks the representative on the phone. “This is our most rigorous program.” “Absolutely,” he replies, “I haven’t felt this good in years.”

    The next day there’s a knock at the door; and when he opens it he finds a huge muscular guy standing there wearing nothing but pink running shoes and a sign around his neck that reads, “If I catch you, you are mine.”

    He lost 33 kilos that week.

    I think the orange tub for hygiene products is awesome. It’s important to teach children good hygiene practices early in life. what they are taught early will follow them throughout life. Good oral hygiene is especially important.

    Sorry — no jokes but just thought I’d mention that hubby and I were big rummagers at one time. We would check the papers, plan a route…Our favorites were the block, multi-family, church ones.

    Now we’re more into thrift store browsing(me more so b/c I have the patience to comb racks and dig) b/c it’s more comfortable weather-wise. My idea of sight-seeing is visiting thrift stores in different cities 🙂 Goodwills are different all over. Even when I go back home to visit my parents, I always make a stop at my favorite thrift haunts for treasure hunts and nostalgia.

  7. Just stopping by to tell you something that happened the other day in my household that amused me so I thought it might give you a chuckle as well! My 5 year old son was playing in his bedroom when my husband walked in to see what he was up to. My son looked up from his toys and said “Daddy, get out of my man-cave!” I wasn’t aware that a 5 year old could have a “man-cave”! The things that kids say!

    • JanetGoingCrazy says:

      That’s awesome!! I’m surprised my boy hasn’t made a man cave yet!!

    Ok you said leave you a joke, make you laugh…hope this one makes you laugh! Two little boys were getting ready for breakfast in their room. The older one says, when we go to breakfast today let’s swear! The younger one heartily agrees. The older one says ok when I get there, I’m gonna say Dam* and you say Hel*. The younger one nods and nods. At breakfast the mother asks the older one what he wants for breakfast. He says.. aww Hel* Mom I’ll just have some Cheerios SMACK!! The mother swats the older one and he starts crying and runs to his room. She then asks the younger one, and what do YOU want for breakfast? He look at her and says, well it’s not gonna be the dam* Cheerios! LOLLLL
