As I was reading on in the many tangents and rabbit chases I find myself browsing through (Google is a wonderful thing, isn’t it?), I came across this quote. Being the sugar queen that I am, I can’t believe I had never heard this one before!

So, for anyone having a bad day, just remember……

STRESSED is just DESSERTS spelled backwards!!

And we all know that Life is too short, so you should always eat dessert first. So… go indulge a bit!


A little bit of a back story before getting into the actual funny parts…

Hubby decided that now that we can actually afford a small sliver of treating ourselves now, that each payday we will drop off Little Bit with the grandparents to finally get back to “us”.

Well, last weekend was our first time out, and my in-laws came to steal away with our boy. A little problem with this plan (that I saw coming from the minute I was informed of this) is that Little Bit doesn’t know the in-laws. He is not familiar with them, because we never see them… because they are always too busy. Problem number two with this plan: they are loud, outspoken people; he is a sweet, calm-natured little boy. They scare him. It came time for them to leave, and my mother-in-law, quite literally, yanked him out of my arms and dragged him out to the car kicking and screaming bloody murder to wake the dead!! My sweet, Angel Boy had NEVER EVER screamed like that a day in his little life!! Oooh, I just wanted to kill. Anyway, the night went on, hubby and I had a wonderful night, Little Bit got new toys, all that jazz.

After that scene, my in-laws decided that they should actually make themselves more available. So their plan is to now come over every Thursday, “or if it allows”, for a pizza night. Last night was the first of these “family nights”, and oh boy what a night!!!!

As we were sitting down to eat, Little Bit decided that he couldn’t keep down again the snacks he was eating. I get him cleaned up and change his clothes. Dinner goes on, he continued to snack. Here comes not-keeping-it-down number two! By this point, my father-in-law had to walk outside or else he was going to join in the fun. I drag high chair and boy all in one down the hall to get plunked in a bath while my mother-in-law is trying to clean up his high chair, my father-in-law is outside, and hubby is still sitting at the table eating his pizza and laughing.

They decided that they didn’t want to stay for the ice cream they had brought for dessert.

We say good bye, get Little Bit cleaned up one last time, and finally get him to bed… but the story doesn’t stop there!!!!

I get the kitchen messes cleaned up and most all of the smells to go away, and then hubby and I settle in to our computers for a while. At 10:30P, everything goes black…

That’s right… we lost power! Of course the first thing hubby proclaims is, “Didn’t you pay the electricity bill?!” Well, of course I did! So, in having a flashlight who’s batteries died a week ago, we scamper for shoes to go outside. We gather from everyone else standing outside that our entire complex was out, as well as the complex next to us, and the one across the street! We don’t know exactly how far it spread, but apparently it was about half the city that had gone out!

Hubby left me with the candles while he went to find a flashlight, and ended up running into a friend of ours who lives down the street. They didn’t have power either, but they had a working phone. So not knowing how long this would last, we pull Little Bit out of his snug bed and pack him up in the car to head over to their place. Their four-year-old was up, and hyper as always, and no one knew when the power would be coming back.

Thankfully, it was only out for a couple of hours, and came back on at midnight. Which of course, all the girls and kids jumped out of our skin at the bright lights and beeping smoke detectors,  LOL! We talked for a little longer, and left them to get some sleep, while we came back to tuck in our tired little boy, too.

*Sigh* Oh, what a way to have a family night!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In being an ex-wife myself, I would consider this sweet revenge LOL! But even if you haven’t been divorced… this can be a great laugh!!

She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes, crates and suitcases.

On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things.

On the third day, she sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table by candle-light, put on some soft background music, and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar, and a bottle of spring-water.

When she had finished, she went into each and every room and deposited a few half-eaten shrimp shells dipped in caviar into the hollow of the curtain rods.

She then cleaned up the kitchen and left. When the husband returned with his new girlfriend, all was bliss for the first few days.

Then slowly, the house began to smell.

They tried everything; cleaning, mopping and airing the place out.

Vents were checked for dead rodents and carpets were steam cleaned.

Air fresheners were hung everywhere. Exterminators were brought in to set off gas canisters, during which they had to move out for a few days and in the end they even paid to replace the expensive wool carpeting.

Nothing worked!!!

People stopped coming over to visit.

Repairmen refused to work in the house.

The maid quit.

Finally, they could not take the stench any longer and decided to move.

A month later, even though they had cut their price in half, they could not find a buyer for their stinky house.

Word got out and eventually even the local realtors refused to return their calls.

Finally, they had to borrow a huge sum of money from the bank to purchase a new place

The ex-wife called the man and asked how things were going.

He told her the saga of the rotting house. She listened politely and said that she missed her old home terribly and would be willing to reduce her divorce settlement in exchange for getting the house back.

Knowing his ex-wife had no idea how bad the smell was, he agreed on a price that was about 1/10th of what the house had been worth, but only if she were to sign the papers that very day.

She agreed and within the hour his lawyers delivered the paperwork.

A week later the man and his girlfriend stood smiling as they watched the moving company pack everything to take to their new home………

And to spite the ex-wife, they even took the the curtain rods!!!!!!
