I just got this funny email.... It comes at a great time, especially with swimming suit season right around the corner....Hope you all enjoy!
Recently, in a large city in Australia, a poster featuring a young, thin and tan woman appeared in the window of a gym. It said, "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"
A middle-aged woman, whose physical characteristics did not match those of the woman on the poster, responded publicly to the question posed by the gym.
To Whom It May Concern,
Whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, sea lions, curious humans.) They have an active sex life, get pregnant and have adorable baby whales. They have a wonderful time with dolphins stuffing themselves with shrimp. They play and swim in the seas, seeing wonderful places like Patagonia , the Bering Sea and the coral reefs of Polynesia .
Whales are wonderful singers and have even recorded CDs. They are incredible creatures and virtually have no predators other than humans. They are loved, protected and admired by almost everyone in the world.
Mermaids don't exist. If they did exist, they would be lining up outside the offices of Argentinean psychoanalysts due to identity crisis. Fish or human?
They don't have a sex life because they kill men who get close to them, not to mention how could they have sex?
Just look at them ... where is IT?
Therefore, they don't have kids either. Not to mention, who wants to get close to a girl who smells like a fish store?
The choice is perfectly clear to me: I want to be a whale.
P.S. We are in an age when media puts into our heads the idea that only skinny people are beautiful, but I prefer to enjoy an ice cream with my kids, a good dinner with a man who makes me shiver, and a piece of chocolate with my friends.
With time, we gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy. Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, "Good grief, look how smart I am!!!"
So how "big is your butt" ha ha ha..... Have a good day everyone and remember to enjoy life and don't get stressed out with all the pressures of life..... : )

Well i have some exciting news... I am going to be an aunt!!!!! By the picture you pry thought that it was going to be mine... LOL My lil brother is having a baby boy... This will be the first lil one in my immediate family. My mom & dad are going to be grandparents. Man that sounds so weird ha ha ha...
It has been such a crazy couple of years in my family but we are all doing pretty good. I think my brother is going to be a good father to this little guy. I'm sure he will teach him #1 how to ride a bike #2 about cars and then all the other boy stuff that he needs to know. He loves riding his bike. He did some BMX stuff in Jr. high & high school and is very talented. He can do some pretty crazy tricks : ) Here is a picture when he was younger of him jumping my sister who is only 4'11 1/2 ha ha... He made it with no problems... I think my sister was a little nervous : )
Here is a picture from last summer getting some sweet air: )
His dream was always to go pro after high school. He will now have to hold off on that because he now has a new dream, to raise a little one. He & his girlfriend have a rough road ahead of them but they both have an amazing supportive family that is backing them in the crazy journey : ) I know it wasn't their plan but i believe that things happen for a reason and whats done is done and we will all be welcoming this little guy July 30th 2011. I hope they can just keep their heads up and ignore what people are saying about their situation. I ran across this quote and thought that it fits pretty well:
“We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and rejection. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path.”~Unkown
I think sometimes people tend to talk about other people's lives because it might be different or not the "norm". They are both great kids and they will get through this. All we can do is be there for them and dust them off if they stumble a little : ) I just hope this little guy doesn't take after our side and fall to much : ) We (my mom & I) can be a little clumsy sometimes ha ha... I will keep you all updated on my new adventure as an Aunt as it unfolds : ) Until then keep the paint up and rubber down!
