It's Tough Being A Woman

I started the Beth Moore Bible study yesterday on Esther!  I have been waiting it seems like forever to start this so I was mucho excited!!  The introductory session was great and I am sure that I will be talking a lot about the study itself in the upcoming weeks.  Part of the title of the study is It's Tough Being A Woman.  Beth had asked on their blog for women to give their reasons of why they thought this and she read some of them.  They were sooo funny!  So, I thought I would give you my own list...

IT'S TOUGH BEING A WOMAN BECAUSE...
*you never get a sick day

*you must juggle many different hats at one time... cook, wife, mother, daughter, friend, chauffeur, referee, judge AND jury, housekeeper, laundry cleaner (sometimes), pet feeder and so on and so on...

*you have to disguise the pantie lines

*you really have one great week each month

*there is always someone following you to the bathroom

*you must keep smooth legs (riiiiiight)

*you must automatically know how to do little girls hair once you have one.

*you have to know when it's safe to whack your kids while driving and when to pull over...

*you are the primary grocery getter

*you have to make sense of why you cry at commercials..

and last but not least....

*PANTYHOSE AND BRAS (nuff said...)

That was HILARIOUS!!! Im not even a woman (ladies) as I call you, but I can appreciate the humor in that as well as all those things you do because in our home I do most of the same things. At least for a few more months anway.

Funny post! We have the hardest job! I love your header picture - so cute!

Also, I read your post about Twilight and I love it too. I am re-reading the books for the fourth time right now. I really liked the movie and I didn't think I would since I didn't think it would be as good as the book.

Thanks for letting me stop by!
