Then yesterday, I got an email forward with it and still laughed.
Then this morning, I got another email forward with it....and yep, still laughing.So I decided to put it here for you....in case you hadn't seen it yet. I have no clue who actually wrote it, but whoever it is needs a blog and I need to subscribe to it.
Random Thoughts From People Our Age:
(If you don't have timeto read them all read the red ones they're my favories!
-I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.
-More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I canthink about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.
-Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when yourealize you're wrong.-I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?
-Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you'regoing in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.
-That's enough, Nickelback.
-I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.
-Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the "people you may know" feature on Facebook people that I do know, but I deliberately choose not to be friends with?
-Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.
-There is a great need for sarcasm font.
-Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger andsuddenly realize I had no idea what the f was going on when I firstsaw it.
-I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actuallybecomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone'slaughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a littlebit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still theonly one who really, really gets it.
-How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
-I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.
- I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clearyour computer history if you die.
-The only time I look forward to a red light is when I’m trying tofinish a text.
- A recent study has shown that playing beer pong contributes to thespread of mono and the flu. Yeah, if you suck at it.
- LOL has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".
- I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.
- Answering the same letter three times or more in a row on a Scantron test is absolutely petrifying.
- Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart",all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart"
- How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?
- I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent a dick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!
- Every time I have to spell a word over the phone using 'as in'examples, I will undoubtedly draw a blank and sound like a completeidiot. Today I had to spell my boss's last name to an attorney andsaid "Yes that's G as in...(10 second lapse)..ummm...Goonies"
-What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each other?
- While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road andinstinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.
- MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.
- Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
-I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in theshower first and THEN turn on the water.
-Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty,and you can wear them forever.
-I would like to officially coin the phrase 'catching the swine flu' to be used as a way to make fun of a friend for hooking up with an overweight woman. Example: "Dave caught the swine flu last night."
-I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.
- Bad decisions make good stories
-Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that theirprofile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if I do!
- Is it just me or do high school girls get sluttier & sluttier every year?
-If Carmen San Diego and Waldo ever got together, their offspringwould probably just be completely invisible
-Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to goaround and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem....
-You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything else productive for the rest of the day.
-Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don'twant to have to restart my collection.
-There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you aregoing to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.
-I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.
- "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this ever.
-I hate being the one with the remote in a room full of peoplewatching TV. There's so much pressure. 'I love this show, but willthey judge me if I keep it on? I bet everyone is wishing we weren'twatching this. It's only a matter of time before they all get up andleave the room. Will we still be friends after this?'
-I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello?Dammit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times andgoes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?
- I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then notseeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
-When I meet a new girl, I'm terrified of mentioning something shehasn't already told me but that I have learned from some lightinternet stalking.
-I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle,then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.
-Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruisingspeed for pedophiles...
- As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.-Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and stillnot know what time it is.
-It should probably be called Unplanned Parenthood.
-I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.-Even if I knew your social security number, I wouldn't know what do to with it.
-Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their carkeys in a pocket, hitting the G-spot, and Pinning the Tail on theDonkey but I’d bet my ass everyone can find and push the Snoozebutton from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...
-My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what wouldhappen if you ran over a ninja?" How the hell do I respond to that?
-It really pisses me off when I want to read a story on CNN.com andthe link takes me to a video instead of text.
-I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone theydrive behind obeys the speed limit.
-I think the freezer deserves a light as well.
-I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday orSaturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lites than Kay.
-The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words,someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about it, and then estimated that there must be at least four people eating to require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by myself. There's nothing like being made to feel like a fat bastard before dinner.
I hope you all enjoyed these as much as I did! Have a Safe and Happy Halloween!!!

Chatham is seven months old today! He is a rolly polly little guy- loves to snuggle and bouncy. Sleeps from 7:30- 6:30 MOST nights. Eats three meals a day. Is working on gripping the sippy cup. LOVES peach and apple puffs. Tried grits for the first time this weekend- and was NOT a fan (just like his Mama)
He wears 9 month clothes and a size 3 shoe. Our newest obsession is hats and hoodies. The jumperoo and exersaucer are still his favorite toys. You are my Sunshine and Jesus loves Me are his favorite songs. He can ALMOST say dada, and is reaching out to be picked up.
What an amazing little guy we have!!! Happy Birthday Baby!

I planned on taking all of these CUTE pictures with the clowns and the flowers and the apples, but I was too scared to unwrap him even for a minute.
We did get this picture with Ms. Hot Dog- and there was a picture with Sir Purr from the Panthers- I met clowns and a fairy and didn't get scared a bit.
Here is Ms. H. Dog. We didn't eat there though, she was just too pretty to pass up a photo op.

Where it came from is pretty obvious I suppose; before I was Carrie Donley, I was Carrie Chatham. The LAST Chatham of our bunch. My dad being one of three boys thought the name would last a while, but alas older brother didn't have kids, younger brother had a daughter, and mister middle man (my dad) had two girls. Even my dad's only uncle (Jim) had two girls. So, my cousin Jessie got married, and then my sister got married, and I was the shining hope...when I got married a few people thought I would keep my last name, a few others mentioned hyphenation as an option. But I am more traditional than that and dropped my middle name to become Carrie Chatham Donley. I was lucky enough to find out on Oct. 2nd if Chatham was a boy or girl and on Sept. 29th my dad had surgery. Not life threatening, but surgery non the less- and what a great coming home present for him- "hi, daddy- welcome home, glad you're well. You're 56 year wait is over, I'm giving you a grandson and he will be named Chatham (not that Scott isn't a fabulous name) but I want the name to carry on. It wasn't on any list, it has no origin, it's just MY family name!
After giving the Chatham clan such a big honor I thought I should do the same for my mom's side of the family- and my baby became Chatham Morris Donley- (OMG, I know what you're thinking) and my hubby didn't go for it either (sorry Mama!)
After several months of back and forth, list after list, veto after veto. We were watching TV- sadly I don't remember what- and every time a name was mentioned we'd yay or nah it. As you probably guessed that lasted a while. The only agreements came when we both 'nah'd' something.
Then it happened. Reid was mentioned no one said a word. You could see us both tossing it around in our heads- Chatham Reid....that's nice....CRD.....normal initials.... and Chatham Reid it was!
If we have another boy (when we decided to have another- put those pregnancy rumors to rest NOW) we are totally screwed- but our little girl will be Harper Annabeth- yes Annabeth. Chatham will represent the Chatham gang and Annabeth hold the family ties strong on the Morris side.
Now it's YOUR turn to tell me about your choices- and I tag Abby, Mrs. Goodson, and Suzy.

On to the meat of this post-Chatham's Wish List.....

We are thinking one "big" gift and then some books for fun...
A) This is the PlaySkool Step Start Walk n' Crawl... My nephew LOVES it (so of course if he has one Chatham needs one- haha, sorry Beth!)

And in the mean time I did not lock my sick dog in the bathroom (where there is tile, not carpet) so I wouldn't have to clean up after her, my husband AND myself who were all sick at once
