I thought this was so funny...

8 words women use...

Fine : This is the word women use to end an argument when they are
right and you need to shut up.

Five Minutes : If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour.
Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more
minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

Nothing : This is the calm before the storm. This means something,
and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing
usually end in fine.

Go Ahead : This is a dare, not permission.. Don't Do It!

Loud Sigh : This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement
often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an
idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing
with you about nothing. (Refer back to #3 for the meaning of nothing.)

That's Okay : This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman
can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard
before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

Thanks : A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say
you're welcome.

Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning
this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but
is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's
wrong?' For the woman's response refer to #3.Then you RUN!

Go Green

So I'm not a huge 'tree hugger' or anything but I also don't think it is a bad idea to take care of our planet either so here is a list of things I put together that I am going to start doing:

1. Recycle -this is actually easy for me to do since Mike has a garbage can and a recycle bin that get picked up every week - but I still have the bad habit of throwing everything in the garbage. :o)

2. Use junk mail to make your grocery/ to do lists on instead of just throwing them away , does anyone know how to just make it stop coming though???

3. Use cloth bags to shop with instead of using paper or plastic - I just bought a package of 12 so if anybody wants some let me know 'cause I have extra :o)

4. Try to make as many purchases as possible that are natural and organic products and fresh produce - it is a little more expensive (around $1.00-$3.00 more) but it is also healthier for you anyway (and I find that everything in the cities is more expensive :o)

5. along with # 2, try to use less paper, now, the Internet and computer is the obvious answer but I find that I tend to like the more personal touch on occasions such as cards and journals - but you can buy cards and paper/notebooks/journals that are made from recycled paper

That is what I have come up with so far... let me know if you have any more ideas to add


...sometimes that mountain you've been climbing
is just a grain of sand
and what you've been up there searching for forever
is in your hands
when you figure out love is all that matters after all
it sure makes everything else seem so small...
