A patient at our office told us this joke:
After the doctor saw his patient he stepped outside the examination room to speak to the patients wife:
"Your husband is suffering from a very severe stress disorder. If you don't do the following he will surely die. Each morning fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant at all times. For lunch make him a nutritious meal. For dinner prepare an especially nice meal. No chores. No nagging. Oh yes, and make love several times a week. Do this for the next year and he'll regain his health completely!"
As the patient and his wife are leaving the office he asks:
"What did the doctor say?"
The wife answers:

So at the dinner table Friday night Mylan tells us that he is going to take five dollars from his wallet and give it to his basketball coach for the Haiti donation. At their last practice his coach (his coach is also a family practice doctor) spoke to the boys about the issues in Haiti. He explained to them that there is much more to life than just sports and their own little worlds. Saturday night Mylan also announced that he wanted to give five dollars to the offering at church. Larry and I were so impressed. Mylan has always been a very giving child. I am so proud of that!
Today I walked into the living room to find the boys hitting each other with the couch pillows and later I found Larry with Mylan in a wrestling hold!
Later I found them in the hallway throwing a plastic ball at each other. At one point Mylan was down on all fours hitting the ball off of his head to Larry like a little puppy dog. At another point Larry was throwing the ball and Mylan was trying to block the ball unsuccessfully. He kept getting hit in the "boy parts" and his head! It was hilarious! It was only a soft plastic ball so he wasn't hurt.

She will be graduating from Derby High School in May!
Today she joined us for lunch at our favorite Chinese food buffet at Kwan Court!
I was also able to get an updated picture of the kids together.
Happy Birthday Alisha!

While standing in line I noticed that I was going to have to put my forehead against the eye testing machine and before I got called up for my turn I was trying to figure out how I was going to get around having to do that. Once I was there I realized that I couldn't because in order for the eye testing machine to work I had to press against it with my forehead in order for it to actually work. Sigh. The DMV lady told me to remove the top piece of paper from the pad on the head rest so that I could have a clean one. I thought, "You want me to touch that?!" I had no choice. I mean, I could refuse and ask her to do it but that seemed ridiculous to me. So I did it. Then before I placed my forehead against the rest I noticed that someone had greasy forehead juice on the plastic around it! Ahhhh! Nasty! I was brave though and I did it. Gross! Then when it came time to have my picture taken I had to sign this electronic pad and before I picked up the pen I thought, "Oh my gosh! EVERYONE has touched this pen! I wish I could wipe it off but then I'd be a complete freak!" Grrrr! I was brave once again. I signed it using that nasty pen. One my way out I immediately got out my hand sanitizer. While I was putting on my hand sanitizer I thought, "I am so pathetic! I still have to touch my purse with my nasty germ infested DMV fingers in order to get to my hand sanitizer! Ahhh! There is no winning here. I'm going crazy!"

Goodbye 20's and hello 30's!

So here is my list of what I'd like to try to do better in 2010:
- I have never been a fan of exercising and I have never watched what I eat. I now weigh 130lbs. That's the most I've ever weighed and I don't like it. When I met Larry 8 yrs ago I was 115lbs. I felt my best around 120lbs. So I want to try to lose 10 lbs.
- I am not a laid back person. I am easily stressed and tensed. I tend to react and assess things later. This hasn't been working well for me so far. So I would like to do better in that department. In order to do this I think I am going to have to try to be aware of it before I let it happen. I'll have to think before I react.
- House work. I have my weird quirks about certain things around the house that must be done a certain way but I need to work on a few other things. I need to work on not letting the clutter build up, not letting the laundry pile up, not letting the dishes pile up and not waiting until the bathroom looks like a science experiment before I clean it.
I am sure you already knew that though.
