Original Acrylic by Rocky (thanks babydoll!)

Dickidoo rudely woke me up with a birthday spanking.  Even through the thick fog of sleep I realized what he was doing and the countdown never made it to '11'.  There's aready enough for a woman my age to dread with each birthday, I don't need the threat of an ever increasing amount of birthday spankings added to the steadily growing list.

I think I'm over my little pity party.  Thanks to all of you who have expressed such heartfelt wishes and prayers for my son and our family.  It means a lot to me.  I really thought I was tough, I sent my husband off to war a few times in the past and I thought I could handle this.  Well, the stakes are a little different, as are the fears.  And so I now place the safety of my son in the hands of his unit, his country, his Maker... and his fireproof undies!

I'm not even going to bother to proof read this entry.  My keyboard is so sticky that I have to pull some of the keys back up as I type.  There was a little 'accident' last night involving an involuntary twitch and a glass of wine that had me banging my keyboard upside down to drain it while my son cackled like a witch on the sidelines.  (Haha Art, you just wait... I know where you live and you have to sleep sometime!)  Lessons learned:  While wine is a good source of antioxidants and is beneficial for your body, it is not recommended for your computer keyboard. 

I have 2 cordless phones in this house, so why is it that I can never find them when the phone rings, and then I have to run through the house like a mad rhino trying to get to one of the wall phones before the demented, possessed answering machine picks up the call?  I just about killed myself trying to answer the phone just now.  I'm 45!  I'm too dang old for this!  Wheres my Metamucil?  I'll be in the powder room playing Pocket Yahtzee...  please leave a message at the tone. Beeeeeeeeep!

Happy Birthday!!!!! 45 isn't so bad try being as close to 50 as I am. Then it really gets tough. When you get to feeling bad just remember R.C. is older than you , have a good laugh and maybe you won't feel so bad.
Hugs, R.C.

Your Rocky is quite the little artist!  :-)

You had me ROFL again.  Say the keyboard did not like the wine, eh?  ROFLMBO!!!  I have done that with soda.

I was just saying this morning about how it amazes me that we have TWO remote phones and I have to run through the house like a mad woman trying to find it when the phone rings!!!!!! ;-P

I just turned 46 on August 2nd.  I know how you feel.  Now I have to sing to you, can you hear me?

Happy Birthday!  You share a birthday with another J-lander.  She is 39 this year and is equally stressed about that.

You were pre-tty, pre-tty lucky my friend. The last time I spilled wine on my keyboard, it short circuited and I was out of business till I finally admitted to my dickdoo that I needed a new keyboard.
LOL. So glad you're feeling better!

Happy Birthday to you:)


princesssaurora said...

LOL!!!  Love the picture and as I am quickly sliding down the slippery slope toward the dreaded 4-0 this November, I really appreciated your humor about your birthday!  

Happy Happy!  And I think the fireproof man-panties are going to be the best good luck charm a boy could ever have...and all our collective J-land prayers added to yours.

Also - are you sure you haven't seen me rushing to answer my 2 ever vanishing cordless phone???  Because that rhino metaphor is so ME!!!

Be well,
