Chuckles and Chortles

Happy Monday, everyone. Here we are again. Can you believe it's another new week? What have you all been up to? I spent a good chunk of time packing up the remainder of my daughter's stuff this weekend. She's moving into her new apartment this coming Sunday, which is exciting for her and bittersweet for me! The most amazing man in the world and I are truly empty nesters now. We joke that perhaps we should start looking into getting into one of those adult lifestyle communities. But then again...maybe we should wait a few years because sometimes the fledglings return home.

Now, how about some funny stuff? Here we go...






If you've been following the news, this will make sense!

Wishing you all a wonderful day!

  1. thanks for smiles dear Martha ,loved your sharing above what a coincidence that my son is also moving to his new flat and this is making me little comfortable because here he will get atleast a company of his school friend they are sharing it and will share the rent also,before i was quite upset with his loneliness though my son says he enjoys it as he can focus more on his projects but being mom i am relaxed now

    1. That's what we do, Baili...worry about our kids! We just want them to be happy and safe. My daughter is sharing an apartment with four other girls, which I like because she'll never be alone! Good luck to your son!

  4. Too cute with the kids surfing through the Red Sea and the church sign :)

    Took my son three times before he "got it right" with moving out. (came back 2 times to live at home) So I think it is wise you are leaving options open just in case your daughters need a temporary place to live for a bit :)

    1. Well, at least he got it right, Betty! I don't mind if my daughter returns home for awhile after school to get settled properly but I will expect her to have a goal for her future!

  8. Being an empty nester is a bit of an adjustment but it soon becomes the new normal. I hope your daughter's move goes well. We have talked about downsizing as well but it seems even with out the kids here we still manage to use the space. Maybe sometime but not yet for us.

    1. The older daughter has been gone for a few years, so we had to adjust to that. The younger one left for university in September and now she's moving into an apartment, so more adjusting! It's quite an adventure. Unlike you, we are using half the space of our home; downsizing makes sense in every way!

  9. My son got his first apartment last summer. LAWD, what a dump but he honestly loves it. I suppose there is something about living on your own and having your own place that makes it so appealing.

  12. The parting of the Red Sea is priceless. That guy had a super sense of humor. Both of my kids came back for short periods from time to time. Never into a senior's complex!!!

    1. Sometimes kids need a soft place to land for awhile, so even when we move we're going to have an extra bedroom. Just in case!

  13. I'm trying to convince my nine-year-old boy that learning to cook and use the washing machine etc will be useful to him one day when he wants to move out and live with friends!

    1. That is a good plan! My daughter knew how to do everything before she left for university and it made a huge difference. She had no trouble adjusting and no trouble taking care of herself. The more kids know the better it is!

  14. These are all good, but the parting of the Red Sea made me snort! :-)

  16. Panama and Europe lol. I'm surprised this really didn't affect the US. Guess everyone knows they're already corrupt.

  19. Oooh, that shaving ad reminds me of all the shape wear ads they do with skinny models. If you want to show big chicks that need your shape wear how they'd look in your shape wear then get plus size models, not skinny ass anorexics that don't bloody need them! ARGHHHHHHH!!!!!!
