Spaghetti, Spaghetti, and Spaghetti
A wealthy man had been having an affair with an Italian woman for several years.
One night, during one of their rendezvous, she confided in him that she was pregnant. Not wanting to ruin his reputation or his marriage, he paid her a large sum of money, if she would go to Italy to secretly have the child. If she stayed in Italy to raise the child, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18.
She agreed, but asked how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told her to simply mail him a post card and write "Spaghetti" on the back. He would then arrange for child support payments to begin.
One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife. "Honey," she said. "You received a very strange post card today."
"Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it," he said. The wife obeyed and watched as her husband read the card, turned white and fainted.
On the card was written: "Spaghetti, Spaghetti, and Spaghetti. Two with meatballs, one without.

I Knew It!! One Day They Will Come and Take Me Away.....
Three Things I'm Not Ready For.....
This year I have to face three realities in my life....I know I'm not ready for one of them and the other two well, let's just say hang on baby this is going to be one hell of a ride.
1) I'll be 40 years old
2) Heather, my oldest is getting married (Sept 16)
3) I'll be a "Nana" the second Heather & Steven is pronounced man and wife
OMG - the bar on this roller coaster ride is locked in place. I can't squeeze out of the seat but am holding on for dear life...."Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the year 2006. Please remove glasses, hats and any loose articles. Please remain seated at all times....."
Sandra, Heather's soon to be stepdaughter is as every 4 year old is....a charmer. I was keeping Sandra at the house one evening and she wanted to watch Cinderella. I put the movie in and thought it would be fun for her to play the character Cinderella. I found an apron and feather duster, tied a scarf around her head and began calling her Sanderella. She was thrilled. She started calling me Stepmother (and still does).
Now that Heather and Steven are engaged, I asked Sandra if she was going to call me Stepmother or Nana. She told me Stepmother and she was calling hubby Stepfather. Um, I think I may have confused her...don't worry Heather it'll be ok....I think.

I'm Going to Be How Old?
Oh my GOD! I was lying in bed last night and it hit me like a ton of bricks - 40 bricks to be exact.
Marti, this year you'll be 40! Sick feeling in my stomach....ugh!
I had to remind myself to breath and thought how is this possible? I shouldn't be "40" yet!
