Saturday Fun

How are you all doing? Made it through another week? Have big plans this weekend? Maybe you're like me and you just want to kick back, relax and spend some time with the people who are most special in your life. I've had a crazy week filled with doctors appointments, surgeries, errands, and lots of work. So...instead of the usual internet related links (which will only keep you from your weekend a bit longer) I'd like to share something one of my sisters sent me:

  1. LOL! I like the 7 foot doctors, the gassy astronaut, and the jet plane crash (really? There was something wrong with it?We need an expert to tell us these things. Lol!)

    Very funny. Thanks for making me smile. Have a good weekend--you deserve a break from all that you've gone through this past week. ;)
