These websites have always provided a laugh for me...

Always an interesting look into other people’s desires…

Chuck Norris Facts.Com- Hilarious- keep checking in for updated facts…
http://www.chucknorrisfacts.com/


Needs no further explanation for ex-bridesmaids…
(Although, I think my favorite is the “pregnant prom dress” in Results #2, but it might be that the stray body parts in the photo caught my eye)
http://www.uglydress.com/


A great book for those who are seeking love…Read the reviews; the book is hilarious…

Always good for astute judgment about celeb fashion

It is un-explainable why I find this funny…Some might think this is cruel, but I don’t think the cats really care… Not sure why I think it is more cruel when using dogs- maybe because they look more peeved, but holy hell… it is still funny…

My long bedrest was 8 years ago, before the laptop (unfortunately) but my mother-in-law bought me a handheld yahtzee game...hours of fun. However, after awhile, my OB made me stop playing it so much, because he thought it was causing my BP to rise, must be my competitive spirit! I think my hand indentations are still on that yahtzee game...it became my best friend :)

When I was on bedrest for PIH and gestational diabetes, I had to be careful that what I watched / read wasn't too stressful. I love Law & Order, but after a 2 weeks on bedrest, found that my BP would go up (150/90s).

I watched LOTS of cooking shows and cartoons. I didn't have the energy to scrapbook or even read.

If only I knew about this website!!! and this group of amazing women!!!

I also made lots of lists for my husband to do. :)
