The Man Song

This is too funny! Listen carefully! LOL

See ya next time! :o)

Men's Restroom Mural

Read before looking at picture.

Edge Designs is an all-women run company that designs interior office space. They had a recent opportunity to do an office project in NYC.

The client allowed the women of this company a free hand in all design aspects.
The client was a company that was also run by all women execs.

The result, well, we all know that men never talk, never look at each other, and never laugh much in the restroom. The men's room is a serious and quiet place.
But now, with the addition of one mural on the wall......let’s just say the men's restroom is a place of laughter and smiles.

And they say women don't have a sense of humor!

See ya next time!! :o)

Smiley at Wal-Mart

Thanks to Joe for sending me this one! LOL

This is exactly why you should always twirl once in front of the mirror before leaving the house.

See ya next time! :o)

The First Snow of 2009!

Well, we have our first snow of 2009 and our first snow day for the kids, which made Anthony VERY happy this morning. Now, you have to remember that we are in South Virginia, where a dusting of snow will cause people to stock their pantries and fridges as if they wouldn't be able to get to a grocery store for several weeks. Where the slightest ground coverage will cause schools, churches and doctor's offices to send out cancellations and close up their doors tight. For those of you in places where the get REAL snow accumulations, these pictures will give you a giggle.

Here is our front yard and the street in front of our house.....see the grass poking out? LOL

Here's our driveway....barely dusted. LOL

This is what makes practically the entire county shut down. LOL To my family and friends in places like Massachusetts, Wisconsin, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, are you laughing your hiney off??? Being from Jersey ourselves, we get a giggle every time this happens and today is no exception. :rofl:

See ya next time! Smile

Well, another year has gone by and it's time for our Chaffy Year in Review!! We did some movin' and shakin' this year here in the Chaffy house.

Smile In March, we moved from our old house out in the county to a new house in town. We love being so close to everything, having a fenced in yard for Taco, central heat and air and living on a culdesac for the boys to skateboard and play basketball on.

Smile In May, Michael graduated high school and made the decision to get a job rather than join the Marines or head off to college. He's taking some time to learn some life skills like budgeting, bills and doing his own laundry and we are happy he's here with us.

Smile Also in May, Anthony graduated middle school and officially became a high school freshman. I am proud to say that he is doing very well so far.

Smile At the end of May, Steve and I quit smoking. We are so proud of this accomplishment!! It has been over 7 months now and we vow to never go back to being smokers.

Smile In June, Steve and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary. He is truly my best friend and I am such a happy woman because God saw fit to give me this blessing of a man as my husband.

Smile Steve has been enjoying his job at Sam's. There have been some challenges, as with any job, but he is much happier with working at Sam's and being out of the mad house of Walmart.

Smile I have started getting more activity into my life. At first it was just as a way to ward off the "quitter's weight gain" but as I added more and more activity, I saw how much better I felt and decided to add activity to my regular routine on my journey to a healthier me.

Smile Kristi and James have celebrated another year together. They have weathered some difficult times this year but have come through stronger. We are proud of them.

Smile My friends started a new website that, at first, I had mixed feelings about but I worked it out with my place of work to be able to be a part of both sites so I am very happy about my online life both career-wise and recreational-wise.

Smile Joe has jumped into a new career in managing a service station. Despite his initial nervousness, this being his first management job, he is running that station like an old pro, impressing his supervisors and even the owners of the company with his initiative and creativity.

Smile I'm so happy to say that Mom has fully bounced back from her health issues of a few years ago and continues to be active in her hospital volunteering, her craft club, her water aerobics at the YMCA and her Red Hat Society group, not to mention being a Nana who is always involved in our lives. We are so lucky to have her.

And that's the Chaffy 2008 Year in Review!! We are looking forward to a healthy, happy 2009 and wishing you all the same!!

See ya next time! Smile
