Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

I Hate Roller Coasters.

I hate being on this roller coaster. But I realize it's the natural progression of the grieving process. I have good days and I have bad days. I'm keeping very busy. It's when my head hits the pillow at night when it's the worst. That's when I do all my crying. It's ok. I have faith. And I haven't lost my sense of humor! That's what hub would have wanted. He would tell me to keep on laughing. He made me laugh, a lot. That's one of the things I loved about him. And almost every memory I have of him I can see us laughing about something. Even when we were fighting, we would always say that someday we're going to laugh about this. And sure enough, we did. I thank him for that.

So here's a few one liners to get your day going:

Why do gorillas have big nostrils?
Because they got big fingers!

What's the difference between a woman with PMS and a Pitt Bull?

What does a fish say when it runs into a wall?

What do you call a sheep with no legs?
A cloud
(I like Buffalo's answer better, see comments...)

Have a peaceful Sunday!

I thought a sheep with no legs was a tampon for an elephant...

That roller Coaster sucks.......

Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon
We could float among the stars together, you and I
For we can fly we can fly
Up, up and away
My beautiful, my beautiful balloon

:) hugs

I love amusement park rollercoasters. I typically approach some of the bigger ones with fear, but after the ride is over, I am always glad that I experienced it. ; )

Cheers Odat!!

Odat, I just saw this on another blog and I immediately thought of you - it's the perfect Monkey Monday/Happy Dance Friday combo! I think you'll like it:

Dianne said...

You continue to inspire me Odat. With your honesty and your incredible ability to share your feelings.

The ride will get less bumpy.

Hugs and Peace.
Enjoy your Sunday

Patti said...

You have a great sense of humor Odat.

Mimi Lenox said...

I like the fish one. Too funny...
Take care, Odat. You're doing great.

Odat said...

Matt-man, Yeah, the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel should be really bright after this one! ;-)

citizen, thanks for thinking of Monkeys for me...but I've already seen that one and have posted it already! lol.

Dianne, thanks for the hugs...and when one shares grief, it feels lessened. I think.

Bee, Hugs at the joke, bad, but funny.

Patti, Thanks do likewise!

mimi, ah....I guess.

I can only imagine what you are going through. I really don't have any idea, but I know I wouldn't like it. Big hug honey.

You are right Buffalo's answer is a riot. The PMS and Pitt Bull is right on the money too. :)

Anndi said...

I lost Mom a little over a year ago and it's still tough. It really is a roller coaster ride... lets hope you get the up part soon.

Buff's answer really did rock LOL

I hate it too. Keep laughing when you can. For instance, I just spent two hours nearly on I Can Has Cheezburger and Cute Overload websites.

Keep writing it and letting it out. Can you treat yourself to a massage regularly or reiki or something like that? I found it helps a lot as well. Still need to let the tears flow but for some reason, that stuff really helps getting the grief out too.

I'm thinking of you :) {Hug}

You're doing fine, and you're surrounded by people who care about you.

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Blessings to you through the grief process.

Christy said...

OH dear. Those jokes were terrible. Lol.

Keep your chin up. You're awesome!

Claudia said...

Sigh...wishing things were better for you. Hugs!!

It must be so hard keeping your sense of humour at a time like this but you're doing a great job. You're in my thoughts. x

It will get less raw as your soul adapts to the loss the way our bodies grow around scar tissue.

There is no comfort in knowing that, but finding humor where you can and basking in the love of friends does help.

You are always a beautiful inspiration to me. I will hold your hand on the roller coaster as long as I can cover my eyes with the other hand.
