I'M NOT CAPABLE OF NORMAL

Howie flew home last night.
He always texts me when he gets to the airport to head home.

Yesterday afternoon I received this text:
He's the yellow text box, I'm the blue.
Seriously, I cracked myself up!
Who knew that the Periodic Table could be so fun???
(AND who knew I would ever use it after I received my Bachelors?)
And then another text a few hours later:
(Again, I think I'm pretty funny.)
AND still one more:
(On the Periodic Table Copper is Cu.
Get it? C. U. ....see you there....)

Ok, maybe it was only funny at 10:30 last night after a 12-hour shift in the ER.
And last picture.
Taken this afternoon in the backyard.

HA you have yourself a funny husband for sure but I'm not laughing at that snow. Man oh man that's just crazy!!!

Julie said...

Seriously, I love each one of your posts. I'm going to steal your periodic table texting style for next time I text my chemist husband and daughter. I wonder if they'll get it. :)

Barb said...

I think that's pretty funny! My SIL is a pharmacist, and you guys have the same sense of humor . . . hehehe!

We didn't get any snow today!! It looked really black out my back window this morning, so I could tell you folk up North were in for it! Looks like it all landed in your back yard! The sun is shining right now in my yard, hope it lasts!

Hugs,
Barb

I was lost! Love the snow picture and how you captured the shadow of the fence.

Cherie said...

I'm glad I am not the only one who posts weird stuff to not only my husband but my friends too (which reminds me - why do I not have your cell #?). It is fun to crack yourself up!!

The snow is very beautiful - I know you hate it but it is beautiful!!!

Glad Howie made it home!!

You really crack me up! Over and over.

Can't believe that is your yard today! Not even any chicken prints in it yet! I am so sorry that you have that much snow on the 12 of November, that is just sad. But very proud you dusted off that camera and took such a beautiful picture! Gorgeous! Just like you :)

Kerin said...

Too funny :)

Holy Moly... you guys got hammered with snow.
According to the weather reports, we are due to get snow tonight, and throughout tomorrow.
Bet my daughter is kinda glad she's not there right now :)

Have a wonderful weekend with your sweet hubby!

Furry Bottoms said...

Im still trying to figure out the Potass OOOOOOHHHHH the "K" I get it now! *slaps hand on forehead* your so silly! :)

By the way, WHAT is normal?

Valerie said...

Oh my word! You are one hilarious lady! I'm afraid you might start a new trend in texting!!!
We scheduled for snow tonight~ bleh. Should have been a hint when the new house came with a snow-blower...

Controlling My Chaos said...

You are hilarious. It's fun to be weird when texting. I love it.

Barbaloot said...

You are hilarious. And I'm glad you crack yourself up, cuz I totally do all the time and sometimes I worry that I think I'm so funny.

StitchinByTheLake said...

I've just stumbled on your blog and must tell you I can't wait to use the potassium comment on my just-now-learned-to-text husband. I love it! blessings, marlene

Connie said...

You crack me up!

The snow is beautiful and no we haven't gotten any. We usually dont' get a lot of snow where I live, maybe just couple of times a year but it doesn't stick around very long.

Ha, great minds think alike, imagine us both making veggie chowder on the same day. It is good stuff for the cold weather.

Leontien said...

Hahahahah
oh my! They should have thought us this in school!

Big hugs
Leontien

Amy said...

Love the snow. I know I am crazy but I am ready for the white stuff.

Kim said...

#1. wish my backyard looked likes yours (especially since the outside christmas lights are up).

#2. I so love your humor. Last week Gordon and I went to see our neighbor who had a CABGx2 and I asked him " . . .so when are you going to show me your zipper?" At least yours was with your husband. hehehehehehe

Yvonne said...

Wow, you got a whole lot of snow. We've gotten just a little, but I know it's coming.

Love the text exchange--too funny.

Mumsy's Place said...

You are soooooooo funny. Pretty snow. Hugs

JoAnn said...

You are a NUT. Sodium, question: are you on drugs? Don't answer that....

Julie Harward said...

Very funny...but the snow..not so funny! ;D

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

You're hilarious! I crack myself up too. Surprisingly, my husband does not always think I'm so funny. :) Copper later.

Ann Marie said...

Good thing we do not text.
I have no idea what the H you are talking about... hahahaha

Lene said...

My engineer hubby would appriciate texts like that.

I can't believe your snow. It's supposed to be 70 here today.

blueviolet said...

Well it sure made me laugh, so clearly I appreciate your humor!

Valerie said...

You made me laugh! But you're definitely SMARTER than I am because I don't remember the periodic table AT ALL...
Cu... That's HILARIOUS! I'll have to remember to use that with Max. He's smart enough that he'll probably understand it.

It's going to be a long winter. Isn't it? We went walking in the dry farms again this morning and I'm going to have to start wearing my boots.

Nezzy said...

Heeehehehe!!! Lovin' the humor of your Hubby and that periodic table.

Howie's frequent travel is having an effect sweetie ;)

We haven't had as much snow as you yet...just lots of cold wind, but they say it's 'a comin.

Colleen - the AmAzINg Mrs. B said...

Brenda said...

You're too funny! I also haven't had use for the periodic table since I got my bachelors.
