Need a little laughter or humor to lighten your day?

Sometimes I feel so tired - of work, of caregiving, of family, of just life in general. It's the same thing over and over. Wake up at 615am, change dad's Depend, skip breakfast because I'm running late for work, I'm late again for work. Stress from work, headaches by noon time. Come home exhausted, aching, and no dinner. The minute I arrive, sis is gone. Dad wants this or that, and I still need to eat dinner - it's now around 630-700pm. I usually end up snapping at him because I'm HUNGRY, tired and hurting. But most of all - Irritable.

I turn to the TV to help me find laughter. Lately, it's the show "Sex sent me to the ER" that has made me laugh so much. It is just sooo funny! Irritating at times, but funny. By the time the show is over, I'm feeling so much better.

Sometimes, I come on Agingcare.com wanting to share some funny stuff I read or saw on TV. And I have no where to share this with you all. I don't feel comfortable putting it on the YOU or the DYS or even Parents say Funniest Thing threads/discussions. Because it just doesn't 'fit' in those category.

So, I've decided, I'm going to do a discussion thread in which I or anyone else can freely come and share something that made them laugh or smile.

These are my favorites - that I watch/read over and over, when I feel so down.

From Reader's Digest.
During a visit with my grandmother, my husband noticed a birthday card from a local funeral parlor.
"That was nice of them," he said.
She was unimpressed. "They only want me for my body," she grumbled.

From the Bangor Police blog regarding the political signs .. Humor:

Dogs With No Place To Pee (a not for profit, non-political organization) urge campaign volunteers, homeowners, and public works departments to remove political signs as soon as "humanely" possible (a little k9 humor, see what I did there).

An elderly man visits the doctor for a checkup. "Mr. Smith, you’re in great shape," says the doctor afterwards. "How do you do it?"

"Well," says Mr. Smith, "I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, and the good Lord looks out for me. For weeks now, every time I go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, he turns the light on for me."

Concerned, the doctor finds Mrs. Smith in the waiting room and tells her what her husband said.

"I don’t think that’s anything to worry about," she says. "And on the bright side, it does explain who’s been peeing in the fridge."

Here's one for all of you who have to listen to stories about "when I was a boy (or girl)".
When I was a boy
My mamma would sent me down to the corner store with a dollar
and I'd come back with 5 potatoes, two loaves of bread,
3 bottles of milk, a hunk of cheese, a box of tea and 6 eggs.
You can't do that now...
Too many security cameras ;)

I have a client who only travels in business class. She's actually my boss' client. I happened to help her a few months ago when he was away on business. Now, she's come back to me for the same trip I did circus gymnastic, trapeze-like exercises to present her options - and she didn't go. She's baaaaack - with the same destination. This will be her 3rd time to have us jump hoops. I learned from my last dealing with her - to present Every possible options - and let her rule it out.

I quoted her airfares on Korean Air $3771.28 and China Airlines $2773.76.

She responded back in email: "Based on my simple math abilities, it's $100.00 difference between the airlines. I prefer Korean Air.

I stared at her reply. Scrolled down to reread my email. Did I do a typo and instead of $3771.28, I had typed $2873.76? No. No typo. $3771.28 - $2773.76 is NOT $100.00.

I emailed back: "Korean Air is $1,000 more than China Airlines."

She replied: Confirmed. Not a math genius.

From Facebook...

One evening, a family brings their frail, elderly mother to a nursing home and leaves her, hoping she will be well cared for.

The next morning, the nurses bathe her, feed her a tasty breakfast, and set her in a chair at a window overlooking a lovely flower garden.
She seems okay but after a while she slowly starts to lean over sideways in her chair. Two attentive nurses immediately rush up to catch her and straighten her up.

Again, she seems alright – but after a while she starts to tilt to the other side. The nurses rush back and once more bring her back upright. This goes on all morning.
Later, the family arrives to see how the old woman is adjusting to her new home. "So, Ma', how is it here? Are they treating you all right?" they ask.

"It’s pretty nice," she replies. "Except they won’t let you fart."

From Facebook....
A man goes to the Doctor, worried about his wife’s temper.

The Doctor asks: “What’s the problem?

The man says: “Doctor, I don’t know what to do. Every day my wife seems to lose her temper for no reason. It scares me.”

The Doctor says: “I have a cure for that. When it seems that your wife is getting angry, just take a glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don’t swallow it until she either leaves the room or calms down.”

Two weeks later the man comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn.

The man says: “Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every time my wife started losing it, I swished with water. I swished and swished, and she calmed right down! How does a glass of water do that?”

The Doctor says: “The water itself does nothing. It’s keeping your mouth shut that does the trick”.
