It is hard to keep a chipper spirit right now...

I am tired of dentists.

I am tired of toothaches.

I am tired of infected teeth.

Colton's tooth is still infected and now low and behold mine is still infected as well. Here, I had thought it was good as new and then the bubble started to reform...talk about a nightmare dental experience. So, my dentist put me on some highpowered antibiotics--round three, mind you, wreaking havoc on my natural flora...--that as I read the side effects, I guess I am ok as long as I don't throw up or get some kind of colitis that can kill me. Great.

And it hurts.
And I feel exhausted...
but my determination to stay on schedule is overtaking me. I want to rest but I don't want to, or can't afford to get behind. I mean, if I get behind, I end up with no personal time. No time for just me. You know, where you send the kids away to play why you finally get to spend more than 10minutes on your favorite hobby or time to read or whatever. Well, if I get behind, it is so hard to get caught up. I am NOT allowed to be sick.

Have you ever noticed that when a mom is sick, she stilll has to cook dinner, make laundry, ultimately still owrk, but if Dad is sick, he whines like a baby and expects to be waited on hand and foot. At least that's how it works around here.

That's hilarious! It's true, whenever my husband is sick, he really milks it for all it's worth. Not that he isn't really sick, it's just that women (in my oppinion) are much better at playing it off like it's not a big deal because we HAVE to in order to get through the day.
I always noticed that mom's have some sort of super power. The day after my wedding, my whole family was struck with some sort of 24 hour flu - throwing up and all that good stuff. They were all staying at my parents house and the only one who didn't get sick? That's right, my mom! I don't know how she did it - sorry you didn't avoid it this time around =(

RECALLED!


The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Subsequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some other symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behavior

6. Depression or confusion in the mental Component

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is:
P-R-A-Y-E-R.

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control


Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers' Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention!
GOD

Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by "kneemail".
