The moment before the pain...

I've got nothing today. I'm tired. I was at the hospital for 4 hours with my mother-in-law today. I haven't posted about it because it's just too heavy a subject right now, but she has pancreatic cancer and was fortunate to be able to have this surgery (10% diagnosed are eligible). My husband has been at the hospital A LOT since last Wednesday and he's exhausted. She'll recover at our house. Say prayers for her. This is difficult on all of us. My neighbor, thankfully, watched mini#2 for 5 hours and lived to hand him back over to me when I got home. I have great neighbors/friends! So willing to offer time/ help/ meals. Anyway...this was a funny email I received. The moment before the pain. These are my favorites:

Ummm, where is his helmet and "bones" as mini#2 calls pads? He's too cool for those I guess.
That's going to leave a mark...and hurt like hell!
This is the funniest one to me. Look how the woman behind the man getting the bat in the jaw.
She's holding up her pizza box as a shield. Like that helps? This man hurt...for a while! Ouch!

Ok, I've been tagged to show the contents of my fridge. I'll try to get this done is the next day or two. It might be a little scary. Thanks Belle in Bloom. I saw this on One Fabulous Mom and I hoped I wouldn't get tagged for this, but hey, if others can do it, so can I.

Oh gosh. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. I lost my Step Father last November to cancer. I know how hard it is to watch a loved one suffer from this disease. Good luck to you also, while she's recovering at your house. Put the fridge off indefinitely. Don't even worry about it. You have your hands full.((hugs))

You know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Here's hoping you have a smooth next few weeks.
