Lol I thouht all u mom's might enjoy this one !

THE MAMA TEST

I was out walking with my 4-year-old daughter. She picked up something off of the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that.

'Why?' my daughter asked.

'Because it's been on the ground; you don't know where it's been, it's dirty, and probably has germs,' I replied.

At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, 'Mama, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.'

I was thinking quickly. 'All moms know this stuff. It's on the Mama Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Mama.'

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information.

'Oh.....I get it!' she beamed, 'So if you don't pass the test you have to be the dad.'


'Exactly,' I replied with a big smile on my face.

Thanks GT! Im over it now. You almost lost me there for a minute. I feel so good to be back!

Doing some major new age cholesterol research and it would appear that my numbers are in fact good.

Tri's should be below 150 and HDL above 40. So alls all in Als world.

I forgot to ask about sugar! Wonder if they checked that too??? They are mailing me the results so Im gonna start up a "health" folder and keep better track in the future.

I also read that when someone loses a large amount of weight, their cholesterol will rise then lower and even out...in 6 months time will tell. Maybe my body is still adjusting.

Al: I've been reading up a ton on Cholesterol levels too because I want to be informed when I go to the docs. Looks like there is quite a buzz about that and the Atkins diet. I don't know a whole lot about it but the general concensus was that the diet itself raises the good levels.. IDK. . maybe someone who is more informed . . hint. hint. .could tell us what normal readings are. . also I want to know what a normal blood pressure is. .I've never paid attention but I know mine was up a bit last time. .
