O.K Time for Some Funny...

Yesterday I went to the chiropractor because in stressful situations I tend to carry it all in my shoulders and seize up. When the pain started moving down my arm I knew it was time to get adjusted. Luckily I was able to get an appointment right away. I sat down and Dr. B started investigating my neck and shoulders in between my "Owches" and "Ughs". I knew it was bad when I heard him mutter to himself "Holy Crap!" Things went downhill from there.

Let's just say I have to go back Monday.


My sweet sister-in-law Sharon sent me this funny email today and it made me laugh - had to share some of it with you all....

1. A friend of mine confused her Valium with her birth control pills... she has 14 kids but doesn't really care.

2. One of life's mysteries is how a 2-pound box of chocolates can make a woman gain 5 lbs.

3. My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely.

4. The best way to forget your troubles is to wear tight shoes.

5. The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don't know what you are doing, someone else does.

6. The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight because by then, your body and your fat are really good friends.

7. Amazing! You hang something in your closet for a while and it shrinks 2 sizes!

8. The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing and then they marry him.

9. I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are eating too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That's my idea of a perfect day!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

That is really funny! The one about the chocolate is the best. Really, there are days I'm willing to eat 1 lb of chocolate if I only gained 1 lb of fat - totally worth it every now and then! Too bad it doesn't work that way!

I truly think that I am suffering from what is described in #3. When my mind comes back, I will let you know for sure.

Joy, I'm just catching up on your situation and I'm sorry that I missed the story of your DH's accident. My husband had jaw surgery about 3 years ago and had to eat mashed food for 6 weeks as well. here are some ideas... Mashed Potatoes, and Apple Sauce of course. I would also take a chopper and chop up chicken pieces real small. he would push it around with his tongue a bit, mix it with salava and then swallow. Basically I let the chopper do the chewing for him. It filled him up better than liquid food. Fast food taco meat is another good (already chewed) food. The best thing was pancakes, I know it sounds funny. But slather them in syrup and they are as mushy as can be, and truly satisfying. Hope that helps.

Hi Joy,
I know you have more pressing matters on your plate, but I thought you might like to know about the junk pumpkin decorating contest I am co-hosting with Ki. Stop on by, the prizes are amazing...especially if you feel like shopping over at Ki's new site.

Again, so happy to hear the men in your life are on the mend.

Take care,

I just found your blog and am really enjoying it. I have just started getting the same neck, shoulder and down the arm pains as you, via stress, not just in one either, both shoulders don't like to be left out!! so they take it in turns. Have you found anything that works really well? I went to reiki and did work but then two weeks later, well as I said the other side didnt like to be left out. Of to read more of your blog. many thanks fiona

I've been wondering if Chiropractors really help. I've had shoulder pain on and off for a couple of years. I guess I should try it! I love the list. Way funny! Hope your hubby is getting better!
