Make Me Laugh Monday: Get Jesus out of the Barbie CAR!

I was asked to be a contributing writer at a Christian Woman’s Blog.  I said Yes.  It is  I’m super excited and can’t wait to start writing all these posts in my heart. 

But – truth be told… I cussed three people out today.  If it helps – I didn’t do it to their face.

I’m really glad the website is called Must Love God.  I definitely do…. but I am such a sinner. 

While we are still on the topic of religion… I bought the kids a Veggie Tales Nativity Set the other day. And, I’m totally conflicted about it. You see…. here is the thing – We have a Nativity Scene. It is our “no touch” nativity. And… part of me says the kids should be able to interact with the Nativity. They should be able to touch baby Jesus and they should be able to “feel” that which is hard to touch. So I bought the Veggie Tales Nativity. Here is my little problem. What if they start playing Barbie with Baby Jesus? I have a real problem with baby Jesus hopping a ride in the Barbie Car.

Which makes me think about how I come off online.  I talk a lot about the praying that I do.  Praying for guidance… Praying for wisdom…. Praying for my children.  I don’t necessarily come out and blog about when I am irritated about things.  (Ok. Well sometimes I do.)  But – I don’t come out and air all our dirty laundry.  (Ok.  Well… believe it or not – what I do air is not ALL of it.)

I was getting dressed yesterday and wondering what I was going to put together for this post.  As I was doing this – I was racing around our house, after my 3 minute shower, trying to find a pair of underware (living room), trying to find a pair of clean pants (basement), and trying to find a clean shirt (hmmmm…. closet).  I totally gave up on the sock issue.

Did you know that 99% of the time I’m wearing socks with holes in them or socks that are on “day2”?  Seriously – sometimes I even break down and buy packs of socks – only to see them disappear and I’m back to my holey / dirty socks.  Today, at church, was no example.  Sock on left foot – dirty.  Sock on right foot – 3 holes.  They didn’t match.  Don’t believe me?  I have evidence….


I can tell you this.  I usually end up having two pictures taken of me.  Picture 1 – real me. 

Then I look at picture 1 and realize I didn’t “suck in my neck”


and thus – picture 2.

See… I’m a completely different person.  Just like online.

Happy Monday.  Got anything for us?  The only rule is your “photo” / “video” / and now “drawing” has to be your own.  Link up.

Ha! I think we all have our moments. Sometimes, I'm very grateful that I can keep some thoughts to myself and not share them outloud..

This did make me laugh! Love the socks with holes:)

We like to think we invented the portmanteau "resockling" from sock + recycling to describe the re-wearing of yesterday's foot covers. We do it that often that we needed a word for it. :o)

Oh my goodness... My sad sock state rivals yours...

And I love you!!

Seeing your two pictures totally gave me an idea for my next MMLM post...before and after using the touch-up tools on Picnik. Ooops...maybe I shouldn't give away my secret ;-)

When I can't find decent socks, I just wear my husband's socks, which he hates because I tend to wear them around the house and get the socks all dirty. I mean, aren't socks SUPPOSED to get dirty??

Congratulations on your new writing gig! That's awesome!!

Woot! Woot! Awesome on the writing! I am super excited for you.

And on Baby Jesus, I know what you mean! We have a plastic native scene that the girls adore and they love playing with baby Jesus. But three wise men are the ones that are taking the beating from my two year olds! Head s have fallen off, pieces missing. But I keep reminding myself that they are being gentle with Baby Jesus. That counts, right?
